The company also congratulated all Nigerian Muslims who successfully performed the Hajj this year in fulfillment of a key injunction of Islamic faith and appealed to them to remain steadfast and be guided by lessons of commitment, dedication and obedience to higher authority as exemplified by the willingness of Prophet Ibraheem to sacrifice his son in deference to the will of Allah, a supreme act of faith which Eid-el-Kabir glorifies.
“We call on Muslims to use the occasion to continue to live up to the tenets of their faith through acts of charity, peaceful co-existence with their neighbours and obedience to the injunctions of the Holy Quoran.”Globacom said.
