Ramadan: Buhari Sends Best Wishes To Muslims

President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his best wishes to Muslims, in light of Ramadan fasting that started today.

The President also urged all Muslim faithfuls to project the best and finest virtues of Islam by personal conduct, and not precept, in a goodwill message issued by his spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, on Wednesday in Abuja.

Buhari’s message reads: “Let us use this opportunity to put the best teachings of Islam into practice, such as kindness and the love of humanity.

“This is an occasion for deep reflection and greater fear of Allah and avoidance of all evils that harm humanity.”

Buhari further urged: “As we begin these 30 days fasting season, let us not forget that Ramadan is not only about abstention from eating and drinking, but it is a reminder to refrain from all kinds of evil and transgressions that harm humanity.

“I am particularly aware of the activities of traders who artificially increase the prices of their goods, including food at the beginning of every month of Ramadan.

”This kind of exploitation is against the spirit of the Ramadan and the spirit of Islam,” Buhari added.

The president challenged wealthy individuals and organisations to always share food and drinks with the less fortunate members in the society.

”Because by sharing our blessings with others, Allah will multiply our rewards for good deeds,” he said.
