A Muslim cleric, Sheikh Alhaji Abdulateef Ahmad, has called for peace and unity between Nigerian Christians and Muslims for the purpose of the proper growth of the country since the two religions worship one God.
Ahmad made the call while speaking to Blueprint at the sidelines of a public lecture titled: “Prophet Mohammed, a role model,” organised by the League of Imams and Ustaz-L-Islamyah Yoruba Kuje, in Kuje area council, on the occasion of First Annual Maolud.
The cleric, who is the chairman of the League of Imams and Ustaz in Kuje, said the lecture was organised to mark the birthday of Prophet Mohammed and to enlighten Muslims on the significance of celebrating the event, “especially as the federal government has recognised it and now gives public holidays to mark the date.”
He also called for unity among Muslims to enable them speak with one voice, declaring that certain categories of adherents of the faith who refuse to celebrate the birthday were not deeply versed in the Qur’an, the Muslim Holy Book.
Another cleric, Sheikh Abdulrahmeed Ahmad, urged Muslim faithful to abide by the teachings of Prophet Mohammed in all its ramifications to make heaven after their earthly life time.
He called on the rich to remember the poor and help them, stressing that except Muslims followed strictly the teachings of Prophet Mohammed, “they cannot hope to be saved from the punishment that awaits sinners in the hereafter.”
