Submissiveness to the will of Allah, being grateful for HIS mercy and sustaining good deeds is ways of attaining more bounties from Allah.
This is the submission of a renowned Islamic scholar, Sheikh Muhydeen Ajani-Bello while delivering the 3rd Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi Memorial Ramadan lecture held at Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi Central Mosque, Oke-Ado, Ibadan.
Sheikh Ajani-Bello maintained that there was a need for Muslims, especially Yoruba-speaking people to desist from associating partners with Allah in worship, shun sinful acts and be consistent in doing good deeds to enjoy Allah’s blessings.
“Every action attracts proportionate reward in the sight of Allah, no good or bad deed goes unnoticed.”
The cleric, while urging Muslims to maintain good relationships with relatives, the needy and the elderly, called on the faithful to refrain from backbiting, defamation of character, telling lies and name-calling for their supplications in the holy month and after it for the act of worship to be accepted by Allah.
“As Muslims, it is essential to trust in Allah for changes in conditions”.
Sheikh Ajani-Bello also appealed to the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN to make cash available and Commercial Banks to load their Automated Teller Machines, ATMs, to ease sufferings occasioned by the ongoing cashless policy.
He prayed for the Ajimobi’s family, peace, stability and development of Oyo state and Nigeria, adding that unity and togetherness were essential for national progress.
In a remark, the Chairman, Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi Central Mosque Management Committee, Alhaji Murisiku Siyanbade who described the lecture as soul-lifting, advised Muslims to reflect lessons of Ramadan in their daily life.
Alhaji Siyanbade noted that the lecture was to sustain the good legacy of late Governor Abiola Ajimobi, expressing gratitude to Sheikh Muhydeen Ajani-Bello for keeping his vow to begin his annual Ramadan lecture in honour of Governor Ajimobi.
