According to him, “The Month of Ramadan is intended to teach Muslims how to live good and compassionate lives. It is a Month of sacrifice, abstinence and above all, love” he emphasized.
Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri therefore prayed Allah to grant all Muslims the strength to successfully complete the fasting period.
