In what could be described as a laudable development, a Nigerian man has extended a hand of benevolence to some citizens in the holy land of Mecca in commemoration of the Eid-al-Fitr celebration.
Sheikh Nurudeen Umar Tahir who is a renowned Quran reciter as well as the director of Nurut Tilawah Taheez School, Zaria, was chosen by officials of the holy mosque who are in charge of pilgrims and lesser hajj visitors’ welfare, to distribute Eid-al-Fitr gifts to Muslim faithfuls in Haram, el-mecca, Saudi Arabia.
The event took place on Tuesday, June 4, under the chairmanship of Sheikh Adil and a chief librarian of the holy mosque, Sheikh Gazzi Bin Fahad.
Speaking on the opportunity to take on the holy task, Sheikh Tahir said: "This is a very rare opportunity, hardly you see an African Black in this kind of task, we are grateful for the opportunity given to us to partake in this rewardable act and uplift the image of Nigeria and Nigerians."
