Speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Friday, Adebayo emphasized the importance of hope and kindness during challenging times.

“If the economic situation does not allow for slaughtering a ram this year, we should not grieve. Another opportunity will come,” Adebayo reassured.

He encouraged those who are financially able to share their blessings by showing kindness and generosity to others in need.

“Those who can afford to sacrifice a ram should extend their hands of kindness to those who cannot,” he urged, emphasizing that the essence of the sacrifice lies in the piety and sincerity of the act rather than the meat or blood offered.

Reflecting on the spiritual significance of Eid-el-Kabir, Adebayo reminded Muslims of Prophet Ibrahim’s trial and the eventual celebration that followed.

“The Eid started as a test for Prophet Ibrahim, which eventually turned into a moment of happiness,” he explained, urging Muslims to contemplate the deeper meanings of the celebration for their spiritual growth.

As Muslims worldwide prepare to observe Eid-el-Kabir in 2024, Adebayo’s message resonates with the broader community, emphasizing compassion and faith during challenging times.
