Ramadan and National Lockdown: A need to be closer to Allah

Evidently, the month of Ramadan is the most blessed month in the Islamic calendar. Ramadan is the holy month of fasting and consequently a month of spiritual reflection, among Muslims all over the world.

Arguably, the Tarawih prayer which often precede fasting, will commence tonight 23rd of April, 2020. However, unlike how it used to be, this year's Tarawih prayer may be different.

There is no doubt that the congregational prayers are very important part of the lives of Muslims across the world, however, given the pandemic, almost every Mosque across the globe have been closed, and Islamic Scholars have instructed Muslims to observe their prayers in their houses. Arguably, this is very unusual but we must safe the world.

In Nigeria, especially in Lagos State, Mosques which are always full of activities during the month of Ramadan, will be quiet this time around; Muslims in Nigeria will surely join other Muslims across the world to fight the spread of Covid19, thus, there may be no congregational prayers in the month of Ramadan in Nigeria.

Evidently, the world is going through touch time, and Muslims across the world must use this opportunity to call on Allah to heal the world.

There is no doubt that HE is the knower of all things, and HE is capable of doing anything, surely, HE will heal the world in no time.
