The Lagos State Head of Service, Mr. Hakeem Muri-Okunola, has felicitated with Muslim Umah in the entire State, especially Public Servants, as the Holy Month of Ramadan begins.
Muri-Okunola, in his statement on Saturday, described the month of Ramadan as one with abundant mercy of Allah and acceptance of prayers and forgiveness, calling on Muslims to use the opportunity to pray for divine intervention, guidance, and God’s blessings for the public service and Lagos State during these perilous times.
He said the Holy Month with its attendant virtues should serve as a guide as well as a moral and spiritual compass for all Muslims, urging them to uphold the tenets of Ramadan.
The Head of Service emphasised that the month demands the faithful to engage in more good deeds and giving to the needy, thereby charging Muslims to be their brothers’ keepers, just as they extend love to the needy, less privileged, and the vulnerable in Lagos.
While praying that Allah should make the fasting period easy and less stressful for the Muslim Umah, Muri-Okunola also prayed that the fast will be accepted as an act of worship by Allah.
