Okere of Saki admonishes Oyo Pilgrims to use Hajj for spiritual rebirth

The Okere of Saki, Oba Khalid Oyeniyi Olabisi, has counseled Oyo State pilgrims to view their Hajj as a spiritual rebirth.

This year’s Muslim pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia is being participated in by a number of state natives, including Oba Olabisi, who believes that the experience should change the pilgrims into new creatures clothed in Islamic morality.

The royal father urged Oyo pilgrims to imbibe the lessons of Hajj and put them into practice when they return to Nigeria in a chat with newsmen in his hotel suite in Mecca.

The Okere of Saki said, “I want our people to realize that their pilgrimage to Mecca and Madinah has changed their personality and status. They have become new beings both socially and spiritually. As Alhaji or Alhaja, they are not expected to exhibit bad or immoral behaviours. Consequently, they have to refrain from immoral behaviours that could spoil their new image. They should see themselves as ambassadors of Islam.”

Also, the foremost traditional ruler from Oke Ogun, who is performing the holy pilgrimage with three other royal fathers – the Eleyinpo of Ipapo, Oba Yekeen Ademola Abioye, Gegun of Ayetoro – Ile, Oba Abdul Rosheed Omobolanle Olayiwola and Gegun of Ayetoro – Oke, Oba Nojimdeen Afolabi Adesola, urged the pilgrims to pray for the progress of Oyo State and Nigeria during the pilgrimage.
