A Blessed Eid-ul Fitr
On the occasion of the end of the blessed month of Ramadan, the Muslim Public Affairs Centre wishes you and your family a blessed Eid marked by faith, prosperity and joy.
Eid ul-Fitr, the Festival of Fast-breaking is the feast that concludes the month of fasting. (Fitr means to break and it therefore marks the breaking of the fasting period and of all evil habits). The holiday is a time for friendship and goodwill, a time for forgiveness and making amends and also a time of great joy, where children, communities and families come together and celebrate. The ritual of observing fasts cleanses Muslims right from their soul. Observant Muslims refrain from food and drink from dawn to sunset during Ramadan, the month in Islam's lunar calendar when the first verses of the Qur'an were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in the 7th century.>>>More

07/09/2013: KEYNOTE ADDRESS DELIVERED BY HIS EXCELLENCY PRINCE BOLA AJIBOLA (SAN) AT THE MPAC NATIONAL CONVENTION
Factually and incontestably, all nations of the world are currently faced with a problem one way or the other. The whole world is still miles away from the just and equitable planet envisaged by the founding fathers of United Nations close to seventy years ago. Leaders and major actors in the world body have largely failed to live up to expectation as enshrined in the charter of the organization. Hence, humanity is now faced with more wars, more territorial and religious conflicts, with one solution breeding another set of problems. We continue to witness more incidences of inequality occasioned by deprivation and greed as well as rampant, illegal, primitive and inordinate acquisition of wealth. To worsen matters, stealing of money meant for alleviation of poverty and development is accompanied by flaunting, reckless spending and conspicuous consumption of items of luxury and above all, absolute moral decadence.
