Nigeria: Ahmadiyyah proffers solution to nationâ€™s problems
Ahmadiyya Ameer, Dr. Mashud Aderenle Fashola mentioned that Muslims should exhibit the spirit of hospitality to fellow human, with grace, justice and fear of Allah to succeed in this life and hereafter.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaâ€™at Nigeria has blamed Nigeriaâ€™s problems on flagrant disregard for the teachings of the Holy Quran.
The National Amir of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaâ€™at, Alhaji Dr. Mashud Aderenle Fashola, said the obstacles of materialism, worldliness, ego, widespread immorality and the pursuit of self-interest as opposed to love of God and submission to His will, the pursuit of common interest and the welfare of all humanity is responsible for the calamity in the country.
Fashola said: â€œTrue teachings of religion have not significantly reflected in our conduct in Nigeria. We politicise religion, we remain unjust, we lack consideration for others, we are not peace loving. We are too materialistic or worldly in all our affairs, too many people are wicked and arrogant, too many are given to falsehood, honest man and woman are scarce, and integrity is hard to come by,â€
He said that solutions to all problems in Nigeria and indeed the world have been provided in the true teachings of religion as presented comprehensively in the holy Quran. Noting that departure from it brings calamities and misery to the people, he said all these teachings are what Ahmadiyya Jamaâ€™at has been propagating for the past 100 years in Nigeria.
He enjoined Nigerians to desist from evil act and wrongdoing, even as it berated terrorism by some sect, saying, â€œFighting in the name of religion is not Islam, God is not happy with such act. The basic teaching of a religion is identifying with God,â€
Fashola mentioned that Muslims should exhibit the spirit of hospitality to fellow human, with grace, justice and fear of Allah to succeed in this life and hereafter.
