“Today is indeed a pious day for us as Muslims. However, we cannot call ourselves true believers until we start addressing and treating others the exact ways we’ll love to be addressed and treated. We cannot call ourselves real Muslims until we start embracing and preaching peace which Islam denotes.

“Also, loving one’s land (country) dearly is another important thing God enjoins us to do as Muslims. So, we must be driven by love for our dear country and fellow Nigerians always. Importantly, we need to make this period count by praying fervently and contributing our quota towards achieving a better Nigeria that all will be proud of.
