Hijrah: Lawal seeks prayers to restore peace



Gov. Dauda Lawal of Zamfara state has felicitated the Muslim Ummahy in the state as they celebrate the Islamic New Year 1446 AH.

In his message, the governor expressed his hope for a year filled with blessings for the Muslims in the state and Nigeria and encouraged them to remain devoted to their prayers for peace to be restored.

A statement by the governor’s spokesperson, Sulaiman Idris, said the Islamic new year serves as a time for self reflection on the events of the past years.

Lawal said, “Today, 1st Muharram marks the end of year 1445 AH and the beginning of a new year 1446AH in the Islamic Calendar.

“It is an opportunity for all Muslims, not only in Zamfara but in the country, to be steadfast in prayers, especially for the return of peace.

“We all have a collective role to play for the betterment of our state and country in totality.

“I wish all the Muslims a year filled with happiness, progress, and abundant blessings. May Allah bless and protect our state, Zamfara, and Nigeria.”
