The Emir of Ilorin and Chairman, Kwara State Council of Chiefs, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, has urged the Muslim faithful in the Ilorin Emirate to support the less privileged throughout the month of Ramadan.
He spoke on Wednesday night at a joint meeting held by the Ilorin Emirate Council and the Council of Ulama, held at the ancient palace of Ilorin.
The emir, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Mallam Abdulazeez Arowona, urged Muslim ummah to use the month of Ramadan to move closer to Allah by engaging in good deeds, charity, humanitarian services, supplications as well as seeking forgiveness at all times.
“As we commence this year’s Ramadan fasting, the annual Ramadan lecture (Tafsir) will commence at the Madrasatul Sheik Alimi inside Emir Palace on Monday 27th March 2023 beginning from 10 am daily,” the Emir added.
He, however, congratulates them for witnessing another glorious month of Ramadan, stressing that such privilege should be used to foster peaceful co-existence among religious adherence in the state.
