NASFAT urges Muslim to remain optimistic and trust in God
A statement by the Chief Missioner of NASFAT, Imam Abdul-Azeez Onike, advised Muslims to remain optimistic and put their trust in God.
He said that it was through these virtues that The Almighty God saved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) from his adversaries and later made him become a rallying point for peace and unity in Makkah city, from where he was initially made to migrate under a very tensed, life threatening and precarious condition.
“The Almighty Allah says, if you do not succour the Apostle, then know that God will do so just as God succoured the Prophet (SAW) at the time when those who were bent on denying the truth drove him away, and he was but one of two. When these two were hiding in the cave, the Apostle said to his companion, Grieve not: verily, God is with us. And thereupon God bestowed upon him from on high His gift of inner peace, and brought utterly low the cause of those who were bent on denying the truth, whereas the cause of God remained supreme for God is almighty, wise.
“From the analysis of the above scriptural reference, it could be seen that, trusting Allah in the face of difficulty brings ease and rest of mind.”
Onike advises the world Muslims facing various challenges to take a cue from the doggedness, perseverance, God-trusting and forgiving spirit demonstrated by the Prophet (SAW) and his companions during the trial period and after the conquest of Makkah.
“It is worthy of note that in spite of his persecution, the Prophet forgave all his enemies and forged unity among muslims and non-muslims in Makkah.”
He further urged Nigerians to cooperate with the government to ensure a collective fight against common enemies who are putting the country’s peace and security in jeopardy.
Onike advised Nigerians not to live in denial of the existence of the Delta Variant of the dreaded Covid-19 virus in the country.
“We should all remain responsible for our health and take note of what the experts say that, vaccination and non-pharmaceutical controls remain the best way to tame the scourge of Covid-19”
