Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde has charged rich Muslim faithful to cultivate the habit of reaching out to the needy in their respective communities, especially during the holy month of Ramadan.

Makinde gave this advice on Sunday while Felicitating Muslims in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sulaimon Olanrewaju on Sunday.

This medium reports that the crescent of the month of Ramadan, the ninth month of Islamic calendar, has been sighted in Saudi Arabia, marking the commencement of Ramadan fast.

The governor described the holy month as a blessed month in which Allah rewards the worship of the Muslim Ummah.

He urged Muslims to continue to pray for the country and the state.

Makinde also advised Muslims around the world to promote love, kindness, and good neighbourliness, as exemplified by Prophet Mohammed.

“I felicitate my Muslim brothers and sisters on the occasion of the commencement of the month of Ramadan 1445.

“This is another opportunity offered to us by Allah (SWT) to serve Him and seek His face, and I will encourage all and sundry to make good use of the opportunity as always.

“We do know that our country is in a bit of economic hardship, but while we continue to look up to the leaders to do the needful, we must also support our hopes with prayers to God.

“I also want to charge my Muslim brothers and sisters, especially those who have in abundance, to remember their neighbours and show kindness. It is my prayer that Allah SWT will reward your acts of worship and accept it as Ibadah.”
