A chairmanship aspirant in Esan South-East Local Government Council, Hon. Louis Imhandegbelo, has congratulated Muslim faithful particularly in Esan South-East as they celebrate this year’s Eid-el-Fitri.
Hon. Imhandegbelo in a congratulary message he made available to Info Daily urged Muslims to use this opportunity to pray for the country’s unity, peace and security.
While stating that one of the major teachings of Islam is charity, the chairmanship aspirant urged well-to-do Muslims to use this festive period to reach out to the less privilege in the society through giving.
“One major teaching of Islam which I am very aware of is charity. Islam teaches giving; Islam teaches charity and love. So, as we celebrate this year’s Salah, I want to urge my Muslim brothers and sisters to reach out to the less privilege. Those who do not have what to eat are many in the society, we should use this period to give them hope,” he said.
While further urging them to imbibe the tenants of Islam even as they go about their celebrations, Hon. Imhandegbelo wish them happy celebration.
