The Chief Imam of 82 Division of Nigerian Army, Enugu, Lt.-Col. Abubakar Tahir has advised Muslim faithful to exhibit exemplary moral character in their dealings.
He gave the advice while delivering a sermon at the Eid-el-Kabir prayers held at the Division’s Eid Praying Ground yesterday.
Tahir urged them to be of good character and always reflect the Islam they profess, saying that the prophets of Almighty Allah always portrayed forthrightness and righteousness.
“As Islam has taught us, we must be good and patriotic citizens.
“You should ensure that you are training your children properly and for them to imbibe good moral character as exemplified by Islam and the prophets.
“Muslims must live under the tenets and principle of Islam and observe various teachings in the Holy Qu’ran,’’ he said.
According to him, Muslims, who still go contrary to Islamic ordinances, should know that the day of reckoning is coming when they must give account of their stewardship to Almighty Allah.
Tahir, who is also the Deputy Director 82 Division Islamic Affairs, also urged Muslim faithful to avoid anything that could cause disaffection in any society or community.
“Keep away from spreading information that do not promote peace and cannot be verifiable as Prophet Mohammed (SAW) made it clear that Allah dislike and distaste those that tell lies.
“And all, whether a Christian or a Muslim, must learn how to keep his or her tongue in-check and use it for things that will promote peace, love and understanding in the society,’’ he said.
The cleric also cautioned against extravagant life styles that often led to greed, embezzlement, pride and arrogance.
“Do things within your limits since every individual is different and unique the way Allah created him or her.
“Keep away from extravagant life style in all you do, be it in association, want and even the food you eat.
“Allah hates wasteful people and will always reward them accordingly in due time,’’ he said.
