Ramadan: Pray for President Buhari’s speedy recovery – JNI


By; Mohammad Ibrahim, Kaduna.
As Muslims began Ramadan fasting Monday, Jama’atul Nasril Islam (JNI) has asked Muslims and other Nigerians to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari’s speedy recovery.
It could be recalled that the President on Monday traveled to London to seek treatment on a persistent ear infection.
In a statement signed by JNI Secretary General Dr Khalid Abubakar Aliyu and made available to newsmen in Kaduna, the body called on wealthy muslims to assist Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) living in camps across the country.
According to JNI, this is the right time the IDPs will really need help.
“Muslim faithful are called upon to fervently pray for Allah’s intervention in uplifting the dwindling economy bedeviling our country, grant Mr. President quick recovery from the ENT illness, relieve us of poverty pang and provide the wherewithal for State Governments to pay salaries and grant sustainable peace, stability and security in our dear nation, Nigeria.”
“Similarly, state governments and wealthy Muslims are called upon to extend benevolent gestures to the million IDPs spread across the country and beyond. This is the time that they really needed such assistance more.
“Ramadan being the month of  Tafsir (Qur’anic Exegesis), respected Mufassirun (scholars engaged in Qur’anic Exegesis) are urged to abide by the JNI Tafsir Guidelines.  They are implored to fear Allah, the Most High and conduct their respective Tafsir sessions in line with the Qur’an and Sunnah of the noble prophet (SAW), using courteous language and kind words.
“Bearing in mind, that they will account before Allah (SWT) for their respective actions and inactions. They should as well shun bad preaching during the Tafsir sessions.
“Certainly Ramadan is a month of charity, servitude, restraint, patience and dedication to Allah, the Most High, therefore we must individually and collectively do so to earn Allah’s forgiveness and mercy in this blessed month,” the statement reads.
