Kaduna — The Jama'atu Nasril Islam (JNI) yesterday called on the Muslim Ummah to pray for peace in the country. Secretary General of the group, Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, who stated this in a statement yesterday in Kaduna, also felicitated with Muslims on the Eid-el Fitr celebrations. "Muslims are called upon to give Zakkatul-fitr (ordained alms giving at the end of Ramadan fast) preferably two days before the Eid-el-Fitr, but not later than the morning of the celebration.
This, if done, will assist the down trodden to also celebrate Sallah. The JNI also commiserates with the people of Maiduguri, Borno State, Damaturu,Yobe State and Gombe State over attacks unleashed on them. Once more, we wish all Muslims an accepted Ramadan fast and successful Eid-el-Fitr celebration. We must also remind the Ummah of the recommended six-day fast after Ramadan, i.e Sittah-Shawwal, as recommended by the prophet (SAW)," the group said.
