Reflecting on the profound teachings of the Quran and Hadith, Akogun Anomo emphasized the deeper significance of the festival beyond the physical act of sacrifice. “In the spirit of this blessed festival, I am reminded of the words of the Quran in Surah Al-Hajj (22:37): ‘It is not their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is piety from you that reaches Him.’ This verse beautifully encapsulates the essence of Eid-il-Adha, highlighting that our devotion, sincerity, and acts of righteousness are what truly matter in the sight of Allah,” he remarked.

He also drew attention to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), who said, “The best of deeds during these days is to sacrifice an animal and to offer the meat to the needy, to the orphan, and to the poor.” Chairman Anomo encouraged residents to reflect on these teachings as they partake in the symbolic sacrifice, sharing the blessings of Eid with those less fortunate. “By embracing the spirit of generosity and compassion, we demonstrate the true essence of Islam and strengthen the bond of brotherhood within our community,” he stated.

In his message, Chairman Anomo extended his hopes for peace, harmony, and prosperity to all families during the celebration. “May the divine blessings of Eid al-Adha fill your homes with peace, harmony, and prosperity. May your acts of worship and charity be accepted, and may your hearts be filled with gratitude and joy.”

He further urged the community to uphold the values of unity, love, and respect that define the diverse Ikosi-Ejinrin LCDA. Amidst the joyous celebrations, Chairman Anomo also issued a vital health advisory in light of a recent cholera outbreak in Lagos State. “I urge all residents to be cautious of their health and adapt to the precautions as outlined by the Lagos State Ministry of Health. Ensuring proper hygiene, drinking clean water, and seeking immediate medical attention if symptoms arise are crucial steps to safeguard your health and the health of our community,” he advised.

As the community unites in prayer and celebration, Chairman Anomo’s message resonates as a reminder of the true spirit of Eid-il-Adha—one of devotion, charity, and communal unity. “Once again, I extend my warmest wishes to you and your families for a blessed and joy-filled Eid al-Adha,” he concluded, marking the occasion with a blend of festive joy and a call for vigilant health practices.
