On behalf of Society of African Journalists, SAJ and African Journalists Platform, AJP Felicitate with our beloved Muslim Brethren on this occasion of Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.
As we mark this day to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim to follow Allah’s Command to sacrifice his Son Ishmael on Mount Moriah, May the joy that comes from this special celebration never depart from you, your family and entire households.
Let’s use this occasion to reflect on the teachings and significant of this special day, with a view to living a life of Sacrifice to all humanity especially the Destitute amongst us.
I enjoined us as African Journalists to use this occasion to soberly reflect on the pitiable situation of the African continent and ask ourselves these big questions: why are we bedeviled with poverty, cuddling bloodletting, wars and religious intolerance all of which have led to the underdevelopment of this once great continent.
Let’s use our profession to began to find solutions for all these malfeasances and hopefully, make the desire change .
Please, use this occasion to visit the needy, the poor and people of other faiths and share with them the joy of this day.
May Allah’s blessing never cease from your homes.
