As the world celebrates the birthday of Prophet Mohammed, tomorrow, the Executive Secretary/CEO Muslim Ummah of Southwest Nigeria (MUSWEN), Prof. Dawud Noibi, and Rivers State Islamic Leader/Vice President General, Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, Rivers State, Alhaji Nasir Awhelebe Uhor, have called on Muslims faithful, and political officeholders to emulate the lifestyle of the man they described as selfless prophet.

In an interview with The Guardian, Noibi said that God’s purpose of sending Muhammed was to guide human beings on the right path, adding that the prophet lived a life that was worthy of emulation.

“He lived a life that is worthy of emulation, and as God himself had said in the Qu’ran, he is a role model for believers to follow. Many people regard this particular occasion of his birthday as an opportunity to follow his footsteps. In all aspects of our lives on earth- be it social, economical, political or ethical- he was an embodiment of peace. So, this occasion reminds us of the need to study his lifestyle, his teachings, and the Qu’ran, which was revealed through him, and use it as a guide in anything that we do in life.

“Another lesson we can learn from Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) and his early followers is that they went through difficult times and lived under the pressure of opposition and economic pressure, but in spite of all that, they did not give up their faith in God and neither did they find an evil way of putting an end to the challenges that they faced.”Uhor on his part called on Muslims to be obedient to Allah and abide by his laws, and the teachings of Mohammed.

According to him, the greatest lesson we can learn is to rededicate ourselves to obeying Allah’s laws. His lifestyle is the best example for mankind, not just for Muslims alone. And if our leaders can be truthful to themselves and abide by the directives of Allah, there will be no excesses in our actions and in whatever position we find ourselves.”
