    As we witness another occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, I extend my best wishes and greetings to fellow Muslim brothers and sisters both at home and in the diaspora.

    Indeed, the last one month has been a soul-purifying one for some of us. Days and nights, we devoted our mind, time, energy and resources to praying, seeking God’s forgiveness, embracing and promoting good deeds in different ways.

    While in Saudi Arabia for lesser hajj, I prayed fervently for Nigeria; for peace to reign in our land and for our country to progress beyond our imagination.

    However, now that Ramadan is over, we must make all our supplications to Allah during the Holy Month count by not withdrawing from our good deeds, but improving on them, where necessary.

    Also, as Muslims, we shouldn’t forget that it is God that gives power to whom he so wishes. Some of us may not be pleased with the outcome of the just concluded general election. However, we shouldn’t take law into our hands through violence; rather we should challenge it in a peaceful manner legitimately in court. And whatever happens in the end, we should accept it as God’s will and move on. After all, what will be, will be.

    Moreover, we must restrict the temptation of cursing our leaders as doing so will have direct or indirect impacts on us, the governed. Rather, we should pray for God to purify their heart and guide them aright.

    Importantly, as we celebrate this year Eid-al Fitri, let us spread love, not hatred; let us preach peace, not violence; let us embrace our unity in diversity and treat others the best way we would like to be treated.

    Peaceful coexistence, irrespective of our religious, ethnic or political differences, should be our watchword if truly we want a Nigeria of our dream to be a reality. There can never be progress where there is no peace.

    Once again, I wish everyone of us a very pleasant Salah celebration and pray that we witness many more on earth. Amen. #Ayedero
