“we must remember that, We are from one family Adam and Eve, worshiping one God; we all believed in paradise and hell, as well as believed in the day of resurrection, we all have our  holy Books which guide how to relate with one another”

“We must support our brothers and sisters with what to eat in these 30 days, in view of the high cost of food items in local markets”

He then urged Muslims to redouble their efforts in prayers and read the Holy Qur’an and attend Tafsir lectures, in order to seek God’s blessings and intervention toward over-coming challenges faced in Africa and the world in general, regarding peace and stability.
