Leadership of the Federation of Muslim Women Associations in Nigeria has called on Almajiri in the country to shun begging and think positively on how to contribute to the economic development of the nation.
The FCT FOMWAN Amira, Hajia Maryam Abdullahi made the call during a humanitarian visit to the National Mosque Abuja on Friday before the commencement of the Khutbah Jummah.
She said it is against the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad SAW to live permanently on begging from other, she urged the less privileged in the society to take education serious and ready to feed from their own sweat.
Hajia Asmau Usman who is the FOMWAN Coordinator for humanitarian services said the organization is moving round the city to educate the vulnerable ones in the society so as not to be used for violence or crisis.
The highlight of the programme was the distribution of domestic items for hundreds of Almajiri who came in multitude to collect the alms.
