Sultan Preaches Unity Among Muslim Organisations

By - - [ ]

Sultan of Sokoto, Dr. Saad Abubakar, has charged Muslim organisations to work in harmony with one another towards propagating the teachings of Prophet Mohammed who placed much emphasis on peaceful co-existence.

The first class monarch warned against divisions among Muslim organisations, saying Muslims’ togetherness had paid off over the years.

Speaking at the unveiling of Nawair -Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria’s National Central Mosque, Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, on Friday, the Sultan said the foundation of the Mosque laid in 1984, should not be a source of worry for the delay, as a result of paucity of fund, but it should be accepted as a time allotted by Allah for its completion 34 years thereafter.

The monarch said, “As Muslims, we should belong to all the Muslim organisations. There should not be any division or any discrepancies of whatsoever, because we should consider ourselves first as Muslims before any other thing.

“And that is what we have been preaching in the last 12 years. Alhamudullilahi, we have come a long way and we have seen the result of our being together as brothers and sisters in Islam.

“I want to thank all of you who contributed in this project of 34 years. This mosque would not have been completed before now because this is the time Almighty Allah said it’s going to be completed.”

He, however, commended the resilience and commitment of the leadership of the society to have the Mosque project completed.

Also, Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, saluted the tenacity of the leadership of the mosque and made a personal donation of N10 million towards the building project.

In his own short remarks, registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, admonished members of the Nawair-Ud-Deen society to bequeath on their children teachings of Islamic knowledge and values with a view to sustaining the religion.

He equally insisted that only children with sound Islamic knowledge, moral and values would maintain such a giant mosque.

Chairman of the occasion, Alhaji Sakariyau Babalola, who is the Deputy President-General, Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), noted that the society had contributed significantly as well, uplifted the “public perception of Muslims in Yorubaland.”

The President of the society, Alhaji Rasak Oladejo, attributed the successful completion of the mosque to the “immense contribution of friends and members of the society.”

Among prominent personalities who graced the occasion were the preferred governorship candidate of the incumbent governor, Hon Adekunle Akinlade, Speaker of Ogun State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Suraj Adekunbi, President of Muslim Ummah of South West Nigeria (MUSWEN), Alhaji Sakariyau Babalola, the Chief Imam of Egbaland, Alhaji Liadi Orunsolu, among others.
