Cleric calls for tolerance, good character behaviour
As the country grapples with security and economic challenges, Muslims have been urged to be fair to humanity and other creatures of God, without yielding to temptation.
The Deputy Chief Imam, Area 10 Mosque, Muhammad-Bashir Ahmed, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), after the sermon at the Mosque on Good Friday, noted that Muslims are expected to exhibit good behaviour in their relationship with everyone.
“Islam consists of three things, namely Faith, Shariah (law) and good character. Prophet Muhammad enjoined Muslims to exhibit good behaviour at all times, without limit to time or socio-cultural differences.
“Wherever you are, treat all human beings equally, irrespective of their faith or tribe. Muslims and non-Muslims are created by God; Muslims should, therefore, relate in the best manner with others.
“Prophet Muhammad called many people to Islam through his good character,” he said.
The cleric, whose message came at a time Christian were celebrating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday, urged Muslims in the country to uphold the traits of fairness among themselves and others in their communities.
