Eid-el-Kabir: Shettima urges Muslims to reflect on Allah’s mercy
The Vice President, Kashim Shettima has urged Nigerian Muslims to reflect on the mercy of Allah as portrayed through the blessing bequeathed on Prophet Abraham and his son Ismael.
Shettima made the urge on Wednesday in his message to mark 2023 Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
The former Governor of Borno State had earlier observed the Eid prayers at the National Eid ground, Abuja alongside Speaker House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas, and Deputy Senate President, Barau Jibrin.
“This sacred day is an occasion to reflect on the mercy of Allah, as revealed through the gracious blessings bestowed upon Prophet Abraham and his son, Prophet Isma’il.
“These timeless lessons served as a guiding light to humanity across generations, reminding us of the limitless trials our Creator presents to us in our path to redemption; in embracing these teachings, we find the moral inspiration to be the best versions of ourselves.
“May Allah accept our prayers and sacrifices and forgive our shortcomings.
“May Allah heal us from whatever afflicts us in our private lives and as a nation, and may this day bring forth enduring unity and progress to our beloved country,” he said.
