Comrade (Mrs) Audu Esther JP, The National President women in Agriculture Cooprative Federation Limited, has urged Nigerian pilgrims in Saudi Arabia to use the period to pray for peace and unity of the country.
Mrs Audu urged them to embark on the spiritual exercise of the sacred day of Arafat to get more closer to Allah with the fear of God, heart of piety and spirit of brotherhood among themselves in order to have the full reward of this year’s hajj.
Mrs Audu stated this in his goodwill message to all Kogi contingents in Makkah issued by his spokesman, Elder Kehinde Akinpelu,on Thursday.
She pointed out that Arafat Day is a special day to all Muslim Ummah globally especially to all pilgrims who have left everything behind including family members in search for Allah’s forgiveness and mercies in far away Saudi Arabia.
Comrade Esther Audu,however, prayed Allah to grant them sound health and absolute guidance to complete the exercise with total acceptance from God.
She urged people at home to continue to pray for the safe return of all family members on holy pilgrimage and those who will come home to celebrate the sallah festival journey mercies to the ancient city of Lokoja safe Trip.
She therefore wished all Muslim Ummah globally a successful Eid-el-Kabir sallah festival.
