Sultan Wants Uniformity In Ramadan Fasting

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar, has called for uniformity in observing the Ramadan fast in Nigeria.

The sultan made the call on Sunday in Abuja at the on-going National Conference on Moon Sighting in Nigeria.

Abubakar, who is also the President General  of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), stressed the need for Muslims to follow the constituted Islamic authority as regards the sighting of the moon.

He said the NSCIA would continue to work with the moon sighting committee and all relevant Islamic organisations to ensure the objective was realised.

The sighting of the new crescent moon is a mandatory pre-requisite before the commencement of the annual Ramadan fasting by Muslims all over the world.
