On the auspicious occasion of Eid, the #FreeZakzaky Campaign Committee wishes all its followers, supporters, friends and well wishers worldwide happy Eid.
Our Lord, on this day: reward our acts of worship, self-denial and sacrifice; Accept our fervent prayers;
Our Lord! He who gives answers to the cries of the persecuted! He who pulls out the grief stricken from agony and anguish! He who comes to help those who shed tears in helplessness!
Set us free from the clutches of these tyrants and from the pangs of their persecutions, let us have enough strength to endure, free from the forces that seek to make us to succumb.
Let us be an adequate match for them. Thwart the schemes of those who plot to treat us harshly, let them come to grief, expose and rebuke them as they slander us, lay out a plan to defeat them, as they try to deceive us by their wicked stratagem. Take particular notice and act swiftly against them who treat us unjustly.
Take us into Your custody, Lord to keep us safe from the one who tyrannizes us. Exercise Your supreme authority to keep them in check, outwit them all who lay traps to deceive us cunningly using moles and implants. Keep off from us the obstinate deceit of their vindictive malicious, and the crafty artifice of the cunning impostor!
Our Lord, put an end to the intentions of them who desire to destroy the Islamic Movement in Nigeria. Outwit them who make plans, keep off from us their deceit and intrigues, their hostility and fancy, keep us aloof, refusing to have anything to do with them, in whatever manner, on any occasion, as You will.
Our Lord, divert their attention from us and involve them in their own overbearing anxieties which You will not cut down, in misfortune which You will not make easy to deal with, in waywardness from which You will not lead them back on the right path, in spiritless laziness which You will never change into fruitful activity, in infamy and disgrace from which You will not allow them to rise to the surface, in broken fortune which You will not let get set.
Our Lord, let contemptible disgrace stick like a leech on their foreheads between their two eyes, expose them to emptiness in every effort they make, let wicked inclination, distraction arid inactivity cut deep into their bodies and souls, in order that You divert their attention from us, absorbed in their own pursuits that do not free them to employ themselves at another, make them think no more of us as they have wilfully neglected and forgotten You!
Take away from us and throw overboard their attention, interests, communication, influence, support, and perverted thought.
Let everything they do against us go waste, defective and incomplete, and do not give any letup so that they are kept fully preoccupied and get no time to pay attention to us or think of us.
You alone dispel the clouds of sorrows, Lord! You are our trust, our hope, our retreat, our refuge, our security, unto whom we can run for safety. Therefore, we call for Your help, and seek Your support to deliver us and other Nigerians from the clutches of these deceitful tyrants. Free us from sorrows and anxieties they inflicted on us and the burden, hunger and poverty they placed on us. Save us from the terror of our enemies.
Send away from us the terror that frightens us, the encumbrance that we find burdensome, the anxieties that wear us down, freeing us from their impact.
Make us use peaceful means and ways You approve only to carry out our struggles for our freedom and the freedom of other Nigerians.
Forgive our sins; Overlook our mistakes; Efface our shortcomings; Obliterate our errors, and Admit us into Your blessings and grace; By Your all-encompassing mercy; For You are the Most merciful.
Happy Eid Friends.
