‘You will account for your deeds on the day of judgment’
The Chief Imam of Abesan Estate Muslim Community (AEMC), Alhaji Muslim Nojeemdeen Al-kuburoh, who made this call during the 2019 Eid Fitri prayer to mark the end of Ramadan in Lagos, said everyone (both the leaders and followership) should always remember that they would be made to account for their action and inactions on the Day of Judgment.
He said: “All our good deeds in Ramadan should remain with us. Praying late optional night prayer (Tahajjud); recitation of the Quran; and giving charity to the needy should continue.
“Ramadan has gone, but we have some obligatory fast which prophet Muhammad recommended to us, like the six days fasting in the month of Shawwal which is equivalent to fasting for one year. Likewise fasting on Mondays and Thursdays is also recommended. If we continue with the spirit of Ramadan we will be rewarded and grounded spiritually,” he said.
Al-kuburoh however, urged the newly elected political holders in the country to be eager to fulfill their electoral promises and exhibit the leadership qualities enjoin by God Almighty.
He noted that, they must ensure that they fulfill their respective manifesto and agenda made during the just concluded election.
“Your political appointment for the next four years is a trust bestowed on you by the citizenry. Ensure you make use of it judiciously in accordance with the leadership rules stated by Almighty Allah in the Quran and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (SAW). Definitely you will account for it on the Day of Judgment,” he said.
He expressed displeasure over the inability of Federal Government to complete the Lagos Ibadan express road on time and also abandoning old roads to depreciate.
“The trauma experience by travellers on the road is too much, spending hours that is meant to be used for creative activities on the road is unfair,” he said.
Vice Chairman of Mosan Okunola Local Council Development Area, Osinowo Adedayo Ayodeji enjoined Muslims to be grateful to Almighty Allah for spearing their life and imbibe the teaching of the holy month of Ramadan in their daily activities.
The Noibul Mufasir, Imam Abdul Rasak Subair, urged the Federal Government to tackle the security challenges currently confronting the nation.
“As we enter in the next level, Nigerians need a polity that is stable, peaceful, and safe enough from criminal assaults so that the populace can face issues of development with vigor and courage,” he said.
He disagreed with ex-Nigeria leader Olusegun Obasanjo claim on Nigeria security quagmire, saying it is a political gimmick.
