An Islamic cleric, Alhaji Aminulahi Seriki, on Sunday, June 11 called on Nigerians, particularly Muslims to use the opportunity of Ramadan to pray for quick recovery of President Mohammadu Buhari.
Seriki, Assistant Imam, Ansarul-deen Mosque, Fadeyi, Lagos, made the call at an annual Ramadan Lecture, entitled ‘The Impact of Prayers’.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the lecture was organised by Alhaji Moshood Salvador, a factional Lagos state chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The lecture was held alongside `zakat’ – giving alms to the needy.
The cleric, who said that God commanded prayers for leaders, urged Muslims to avoid watching television while praying to avoid unanswered prayer.
“We should fully submit ourselves to God and concentrate when praying to Him.
“You don’t watch television or look at things going on around you while praying; such things are the causes of unanswered prayers,” he said.
