In an announcement gave through the Secretary-General of JNI, Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, Abubakar encouraged all Muslims to ask at home as they can not stand to be crazy with their lives.

The announcement peruses: “As Muslims, we are not, be that as it may, negligent of the way that demise is inescapable, yet we should not be wild with our lives, Q2:195 is a reasonable declaration with that impact.

“Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) under the initiative of His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, congratulates ahead of time with the Muslim Ummah on the inevitable month of Ramadan. Unequivocally, Ramadan is the period of the Qur’an, the long stretch of Du’a (supplication) and Dhikr (Allah’s recognition), the period of Zakah and Sadaqah (giving poor contribution and noble cause), and the long stretch of Qiyamul-Layl (remaining in the night for petitions).

“Yet, because of the mind-boggling emission of the novel COVID-19 pandemic, the Ummah’s excitement should be revitalized as against what gets of obvious dread over the pandemic episode.

“It ought to be made realized that all Salawatun-nawafil (discretionary and nonobligatory supplications), including Taraweeh, are initially liked to be seen at home, despite the fact that it is mustahabb (alluring) to watch it in the assemblage.

“To summarize it, there won’t be the yearly Tafsir meetings and no congregational Taraweeh in mosques, until when the circumstance licenses. We should, in this manner, supplicate with our families at home and remain safe.

“Clinical specialists and mid-course Ulama’s recommendation on COVID-19 ought to be strictly clung to. We should all in all evade the vituperations of radicals in musings and activities on any issue, as cautioned by the Prophet (PBUH).”
