Sallah: Mrs Buhari felicitates with Nigerians


Agency Reports>>>      The wife of the president,  Mrs Aisha Buhari, has felicitated with Nigerians for witnessing this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration.

The First Lady, in her tweeter handle, thanked Nigerians for their continued prayers and support to President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

” On this day of  Eid Adha, I join all Nigerians in thanking God for the blessings he has bestowed on our country.


” I also pray for Nigeria to witness more development in the months and years to come,” she tweeted.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the eid al-adha is the 10th month of Dhul Hijjah of  the Islamic Calendar equivalent to 1st day of September  of  the Gregorian Calendar.

NAN also reports that it  is a holy time  for sacrifice and generosity to friends, family and the needy.

Muslims honour the Eid al-Adha as the time when  Prophet Ibrahim known as Abraham to Jews and Christians was going to sacrifice his son,  Isaac.

Instead,  Abraham was ordered by  God to slaughter an animal (ram) instead.

The eid adha (slaughtering of ram) symbolises  Prophet Ibrahim’s devotion to Allah.

The period also marks  the end of  Hajj, the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.
