Spend on worthy things, clerics charge Nigerians

Published by Tribune on Tue, 17 Jan 2012


Muslims have been charged to spend their wealth towards the development and propagation of Islam to reap favour of God.This is just as Nigerian leaders have been charged to have the fear of God at heart in handling issues that concern the people.An Islamic scholar, Imam Sulaiman Mahmood Sakele, said this during a Quranic graduation ceremony of Madrasatul Nahadotil Islamiyya Wal-Adabiyya Okefoma, Ilorin, adding that some Muslims were in the habit of wasteful spending on material gains which he said were not of importance to them.'Allah enjoins Muslims to spend their wealth in the way of Allah rather than spend it on things that have no benefit', adding that every meaningful spending in the way of Allah would be rewarded on earth and on the Last Day, pointing out that spending wisely was important to all believing Muslims. While urging parents to spend meaningfully on the education of their wards, Sakele said that this was the only way they could gain abundantly in future. Also, the Bishop of Ilorin Diocese of the African Church, the Right Reverend James Oluwole-Oke, during a sermon in Ilorin, said, 'God is watching the steps of our leaders and they should be reminded that they will give an account of their stewardship after their tenure not only before God, but also before the electorate'.The religious leader also called on those engaging in sinful ways to retrace their steps and turn to God by walking in the righteous way, saying that failure to yield, they will face the full wrath of God.Bishop Oke lamented that prices of goods and services had increased by more than 100 per cent occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy, calling for a reversal or provision of palliative measures to cushion the effects of the hardship of people.
