ARAFAT DAY: SULTAN URGES MUSLIMS TO FAST, PRAY OVER INSECURITY

The Sultan of Sokoto and President-General Jama’atu Nasril Islam, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, have urged Nigerian Muslims to intensify prayers during Friday’s Arafat Day for Allah to end the insecurity ravaging the country.

He said this in line with Tuesday’s twin devastating attacks on the convoy of President Muhammadu Buhari’s advance team to Daura, Katsina state, and Kuje Correctional Center, where a security agent was killed, two others were injured and the prison gate opened for all inmates to escape.

To this end, the Sultan tasked the Muslim ummah to take advantage of the grace of Arafat Day to beseech Allah for an end to all issues of insecurity across the country.

The Sultan, who spoke in a statement signed by the Secretary-General, Dr. Khalid Aliyu, said Arafat Day is the best day of the year when Allah forgives sins, listens to prayers, and accepts all supplications.

Thus, Muslims are urged to fast on that day and make supplications to Allah for their needs and challenges.
