Ajadi whose political party has not been known yet addressed the Muslims through the journalists at his office, Amras Crescent, Torotoro Quarters, Ibafo, Ogun State, today, 30 July 2020 where he admonished the faithful practitioners to see the festive season as a period of hope that all will turn out well soon.
He added that Almighty Allah offered Prophet Ibrahim ram in substitute to Prophet Ismail who was to be used as sacrifice earlier, reiterating that it was a recompense for the Ibrahim’s family’s trial while trying to fulfill Allah’s commandment.
He said the Muslims and other religious faithful are in the testing period of faith at this moment of COVID-19 and only he or she that keeps to the will of the omnipotent being will have a course to glorify Him in the end.
He said, “We should all practice what Prophet Ibrahim and Ismail propagated during the period of trial and travail when building the holy Kaabah which are the love of sharing with others, and living in peaceful coexistence with other religions practitioners.
“Season’s Greetings to my brothers and sisters in Islam. Happy Eid Mubarak celebration and I pray may Almighty Allah accept all our good deeds as an act of worship,” he said.
