Muslim communities in Lango have been called upon to desist from acts that can annoy Allah as they celebrate Eid.
Sheikh Yusuf Balinda, a preacher at Faizane Madina Mosque located at Lira Primary School, and a member of the general assembly of Uganda Muslim Supreme Council appealed to fellow Muslims to desist from immorality and drinking as they celebrate Eid.
He made the call during Ramadan prayers at their mosque located at Lira Primary School.
Eid al-Fitr is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.
“Allah is there. We have to maintain the kind of spirit and efforts which we used to make during Ramadan. We have to continue to pray five times a day, attending Juma, giving Sadaka, being kind, and continue sharing,” Balinda said.
He called on Muslims not celebrate Eid in the clubs, go and drink, fornicate, adultery, saying that is not how Eid is celebrated.
He urged them to instead celebrate Eid by being happy, eating food, inviting friends and relatives to their houses, visiting relatives and friends, being kind to the poor, widows and orphans.
“I implore you to go and do good things only that will not annoy Allah.”
He also urged fellow Muslims to, after finishing Ramadan, fast six days in the month of Shawwal as the Holy prophet said.
Balinda commended National Water and Sewage Corporation for the support of seating mats worth sh500,000 they donated to the Muslim community of Lira Primary School.
The president of the newly formed Pakistani Association in Lira, Sardar Muhammad Atiq Nawaz, who also attended the prayers with his members said they plan to get some assistance and give to the needy people in Lira.
