Etsu Nupe and chairman, Niger State Council of Traditional Rulers, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar, has felicitated with Muslims in the country on the occasion of the 2020 Eid- El-Maulud which signifies commemoration of the birth of Prophet Muhammad.
He also urged them to pray for peace, unity and progress of the country.
In his message to the Muslim faithfuls on the occasion of Eid-El-Maulud celebration in his Wadata Palace, Bida on Thursday, he said: “It is not just enough to be a Muslim.
But you must also have the fear of Allah and behave in the most acceptable manner to your fellow human beings. Let us revive the teachings of the Prophet by preaching peace wherever we find ourselves.”
“Maulud is not only for merry making, but also a time to emulate what Prophet Muhammad, was sent by the Almighty God to come and do.”
He said that, as Muslims who are sincere in their faith, “we are supposed to follow all that the Prophet of Islam preaches and teaches.”
