He stated this in his goodwill message issued on Friday stressing that “there is need for strong devotion to the dictates of Allah in a bid to overcome the current global pandemic ravaging the entire human endeavours.
Dr. Yusuf added that, “Eid-el-Kabir should be a period for renewing the spirit of compassion to fellow man and sacrifice in the service of society.”
“Tolerance and living in peace with one another is our source of strength and a solution to our challenges. There is no doubt that this year’s sallah celebrations calls for sober reflections, fervent prayers and deep thoughts and closeness to God almighty due to the economic woes, security challenges and tension in the global community.
“I also use this medium to offer prayers for the the few worshippers who answered the call of Allah to attend this year’s Hajj due to the due effects of COVID-19 infection which has caused lockdown and economic regression globally.”
Dr. Yusuf however wished Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State, the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari and all Muslim faithful a prosperous Eid-el-Kabir sallah festival with bountiful joys and protections.
