Hajj 2019: FOMWAN tasks Plateau pilgrims on good conduct


Mrs Muhibba Abdulrazak, the leader of the Federation of Muslim Women Association of Nigeria (FOMWAN) in Plateau, has urged Muslim pilgrims from the state performing the 2019 Hajj in Saudi Arabia to be good ambassadors of the state and the country while in the holy land.
Abdulrazak made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Jos.
” You should be good ambassadors of Nigeria and Plateau while in the holy land; you should not indulge in illicit drug trafficking; you should also remember to pray for the security and peace of Nigeria, ” she said.
She also urged the faithful to adhere to the teachings and injunctions of Allah which should reflect in their moral conduct in Saudi Arabia.
The FOMWAN official advised the pilgrims to view the exercise as a spiritual call which was in line with the tenets of the five pillars of Islam while she prayed for a hitch free exercise for the pilgrims.
She equally urged Muslims to share gifts with their neighbours and the less privileged families during the forthcoming Eid-El -Kabir celebrations, saying God would bless them the more for such gesture.
NAN reports that Gov. Simon Lalong had in a farewell speech to the pilgrims recently also advised them to be God fearing and obey the extant laws of the Royal kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
NAN also reports that the Plateau Government sponsored 630 Muslim pilgrims for the 2019 Hajj.
