The government of Saudi Arabia has declared Saturday, August 10th as Arafat Day, the height of Hajj rites when pilgrims all over the world will converge on the Plain of Arafat for supplications.
The Amir- ul Hajj, Lagos State, Dr AbdulHakeem AbdulLateef made the disclosure on Friday at the Lagos State House in Makkah.
A statement by the spokesperson of the Lagos State Muslim Pilgrims Board, Jamiu Dosunmu, quoted the Amir- ul Hajj as saying the “Eid-ul-Kabir will be on Sunday, 11th August 2019 When Muslim all over will sacrifice Ram in accordance to the Sunnah in Islam.”
“Now that the date of Arafat has been declared and Friday, 9th August has been billed for movement of Lagos pilgrims to Muna, the Board management has designed scheduled prayers for the different local governments to supplicate for Allah’s protection for a safe journey to and fro Muna as well as success on the exercise. Salat Zuhri must be performed in Muna on Saturday by all pilgrims of this year Hajj,” he said.
AbdulLateef appealed to pilgrims to attend the prayers in accordance with the dates allotted to their local governments in order to control the crowd and create a better atmosphere for pilgrims during the lectures.
“The purpose is to enlighten them on the expectations of Muna, Musdalifah, Arafat and Jamarat.”
AbdulLateef, who emphasised, that the major Hajj rites fall within five days of Dhul Hijjah encouraged pilgrims to endeavour to follow the instructions of the Saudi Authority as a way of supporting them check-mate avoidable disaster.
The Amir-ul Hajj noted that some of the expectations of Muslims within the first ten days of the month of Hajj include fasting, reading the holy Quran, increasing in good deeds; engaging in all acts of Ibadah, give love to and be dutiful to parents; feeding of birds and cats with food and water.
Others according to him include distribution of cold water to people working in the sun, visiting the sick, inmates, orphanage and old people’s homes, attending prayers at their times and listening to lectures, fasting all nine days, every fast is like 70years away from fire (hell), if not 9 days, fast at least on Arafat Day for those not performing Hajj. It wipes two years of sin.
AbdulLateef stressed that giving a lot of Sadaqat; staying away from unholy music and videos; doing dawah and guiding the non-Muslims to a righteous path are also rewarding during the month.
Meanwhile, intensive planning is ongoing at the Lagos House in Makkah to ensure a smooth and hitch-free Haj exercise.

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
