Eid-el-Kabir: Observe Covid-19 safety precautions, Glo charges Muslims


Globacom, the grand masters of data, has felicitated with Muslim faithful on the 2020 Eid-el-Kabir festival.

In a statement on Thursday, Globacom urged the faithful to make moderation their watchword as they celebrate and ensure strict compliance with the Covid-19 safety precautions of staying at home, observing social distancing, washing hands regularly and using hand sanitisers.

It charged the Muslim Ummah to use the opportunity of this year’s celebration to pray for the unity, peace and development of Nigeria as well as the restoration of normalcy to the entire world currently being ravaged by the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We rejoice with the Muslim Ummah as they celebrate the Eid-El-Kabir festival. We call on them to use the occasion to continue to live up to the tenets of their faith through acts of charity, peaceful co-existence with their neighbours and obedience to the injunctions of the Holy Quoran,” Globacom said.

It advised muslims to be mindful of the lessons of dedication and obedience to higher authorities as demonstrated by Prophet Ibraheem’s willingness to sacrifice his son in deference to the will of God, a supreme act of faith which Eid-El-Kabir glorifies.

“It is a season of charity, peace-making and forgiveness. We must use this season to remember to care for the poor and the needy in line with Allah’s injunction to be our brother’s keeper”, Globacom added.

Whilst wishing all Muslims a very happy Eid-El-Kabir celebration, the company assured them of continuous delightful experience powered by top notch quality services throughout the season and beyond.

Eid-El-Kabir, also known as Eid-al-Adha or Feast of the Sacrifice, is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide. The celebrations start after the Hajj, when the pilgrims to Mecca in Saudi Arabia descend from Mount Arafat.
