‘Muslims should seek forgiveness, shun corruption after Ramadan’
Speaking at the Lailatul Qadr prayer, the Chief Missioner of NASFAT, Abdul Azeez Onike said Lailatul Qadr is one of the beauties of Islam, which Allah as blessed mankind with.
Its significant in the life of Muslims cannot be over-emphasised
He said due to the significant of Lailatul Qadr (the night of Decree), which is better than a thousand months, NASFAT decided to put in place series of programmes for Muslims searching for the blessed night.
The activities has commenced since last week Tuesday because whatever good deeds you do in this night, it’s like you did it for 1000 months or 83 years.
Onike noted that the gathering is about the largest gathering of Muslim searching for the night of majesty in Nigeria.
“ When you have large number of Muslim in a particular place supplicating to Allah, the most beloved person in the sight of Allah may be among them and Allah may accept other people supplication as well.”
He urged Nigerians to use the opportunity to pray for peace, stability, and tranquility to continue to reign in the country.
“It is an opportunity for everybody to key into regardless of your religion, pray for the president and pray for the country,” he said.
He urged the Federal Government to dig deep into the root cause of insurgency in the country because it has nothing to do with religion.
“Government should develop the goodwill, go further and do research on what is causing insurgency and nip it in the bud”.
He commended the present administration over the drastic reduction on the rate of insurgency in the country.
The President of NASFAT Worldwide, Kameel Bolarinwa, said NASFAT is purely a religious organization, non-partisan politically but at the same time not insulated from the buffets of politics.
“We need peace in the country to achieve our stated objectives.
That is why I believe as Nigerians, we have a civic duty to choose those we want to preside over the affairs of our states and country by voting in the forthcoming elections,” he said.
He reiterated the need to educate family members, friends and neighbors on the virtues of voting to contribute to electing the right people to positions.
He noted the need to exercise very strict, oversight responsibility over children and youths.
“This period requires eagle-eyed parental guidance in order to forestall our children being used as cannon fodders in political mayhem.
They are vulnerable and easy targets for selfish political operators who may be hell bent on causing disruptions to the political process.
NASFAT National Women Affairs Secretary, Alhaja Samiat Mumineen urged Muslim women to be patient and steadfast and hold unto the rope of Allah.
“There is no need to run helter and scepter for help anywhere.
If you are steadfast in your religion, you will overcome all trials.
Allah has promised to test our faith and he will grant us ease after hardship,” she said.
