Zamfara Governor Calls for Prayers for Peace during Maulud Celebration
Zamfara State Governor, Dauda Lawal, encourages the Muslim community in Zamfara to use the special occasion of Maulud Nabiy to pray for lasting peace in the state.
This celebration marks the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) on the 12th day of Rabi’ul Awwal in the Islamic calendar.
In a statement on Wednesday, the governor’s spokesperson, Sulaiman Bala Idris, shared Lawal’s message urging Muslims across the nation to honor the Maulud occasion and reflect on the teachings of Prophet Muhammad.
Governor Lawal emphasized the importance of praying for peace and prosperity in Zamfara and Nigeria.
“I extend my warmest wishes to fellow Muslims as we observe the 12th of Rabi’ al-Awwal, a blessed day marking the birth of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
Today holds great significance as we celebrate the life of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), who dedicated his life to promoting peace and love.
Maulud should be a day for introspection in our lives. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) showed love to all, even to his adversaries.
He stood for love and efficiency, setting an example of mercy for all of humanity.
Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) demonstrated exceptional patience and forgiveness—virtues we should strive to embody, especially in these challenging times.
Let’s come together and earnestly pray for the restoration of peace in our beloved state of Zamfara and our great nation, Nigeria.
Our collective prayers possess the strength to usher in positive change,” the governor expressed.
