Appreciate God, humans for good gestures, clerics task Muslims

Clerics have tasked Muslims across the country to be thankful to Allah and always appreciate good gestures from humanity. The Islamic scholars who spoke at the 12th Anniversary and Award of Appreciation ceremony of Al-Jameel Islamic Society of Nigeria in Lagos. The Guest Lecturer, Professor Abdul Afis Oladosu, who spoke on the topic: “Gratefulness in the Islamic Context”, said Muslims deserve to continually thank Allah for His perfect creation of mankind and adequate shaping of human body parts.

Oladosu, a Professor at Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies, University of Ibadan said: “Many pregnancies have been terminated, but for Allah to make you scale through the hurdle of abortion and shape you to become a perfect human is enough as a point of appreciation.He enjoined members of Al-Jameel to be grateful for scaling through many challenges and calamities that might have evolved for over one million man-hours that makes the 12 years journey.

He advised Muslims to appreciate the good health, welfare and ultimately the continued existence. He decried a situation whereby many people decline to appreciate Allah because they have failed to achieve some desired goals in life, noting that Muslims should always thank Allah and give less priority to material things. According to him, those worldly things, wealth and others will not count in the hereafter; rather what matters most is what we have done with them.

Oladosu urged Muslims to be steadfast and hold on to the rope of Allah.“We should not join them in idolating prophet Issa. We should ensure that our presence at Asalatu prayer is reflected in our daily endeavours. Our dressing should be moderate and decent while our utterances and general appearance should be a source of propagation for Islam. “If the entire universe declined to thank Allah, it doesn’t reduce His glory, hence, the need for Muslims to appreciate Allah and get more blessings.

“We should always remember that we don’t have capacity to do anything ourselves. We cannot move an inch; we cannot talk or think without the mercy of Allah. The food that we eat, the fruits and even the water we drink couldn’t have been possible without the blessings of Allah,” he said. Sheikh Habeebullah Adam Abdullah Al-Ilory, a special guest at the occasion, harps on the need for Muslims to all appreciate good gestures, adding that the faithful should take it seriously and see it as duty every moment.

He applauded the founder of Al-Jameel, Sheikh Abdullah Adeniyi Arowolo for the progress achieved in the last 12 years, particularly in the spiritual purification of Muslims.
