The Iralepo of Isinkan Kingdom in Akure south local government area of Ondo State, Oba (Barrister) Oluwagbemiga Ajimokunola Olofin-Adimula (Arulewolasi III) has felicitated Muslims on this year’s celebration of Eid-ul-Adha.
Iralepo in his Eid-ul-Adha 2023 message personally signed
said the greatest commitment to Islam is for Muslims to put its good virtues into practice, and making justice and righteousness the guiding principles of their everyday lives.
He said, “we should be the mirror through which others see the good virtues of our faith.”
“Islam is a religion of peace and we should avoid any act capable of giving Islam a wrong name because our conduct leave more lasting positive impressions.”
He prayed for Allah’s peace, mercy, and blessings on all Nigerians.
He also prayed for the pilgrims who performed this year’s Hajj.
“Eid al Adha commemorates the completion of hajj — a pilgrimage to Mecca and its surrounding sites. Every year, in the final month of the Islamic calendar, called Dhul Hijjah, selected Muslims from around the world travel to Mecca, Saudi Arabia in order to make the hajj.”
“The hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam, meaning it’s one of the top five things a practicing Muslim should do in order to have a connection with God.” The Monarch noted
He called on Nigerians to pray fervently for the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu led administration not to derail on the good path with which he has started.
Iralepo also enjoined Nigerians especially the people of Ondo State to remember the State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN in their prayers at all times.
He advised Muslims to be tolerant and continue to work for peace, unity, national integration, and peaceful coexistence.
