CHIEF Imams, Imams and Alfas of the Anwar-ul-Islam Movement of Nigeria throughout the country and abroad have been charged to adhere strictly to, and ensure that all religious activities, rites and programmes are conducted in conformity with the mode of worship and the Movement’s Code of Conduct.

This was the theme of a 2-Day seminar organised by the Movement in Lagos which the National President, Alhaji Mubashir Adekunle Ojelade said was, “to bring certainty, uniformity, consistency and respectability to the Movement generally.”

Declaring the seminar open, Barrister Ojelade said, the purpose of the seminar was to “examine, discuss, and familiarise participants with salient aspects/procedure in the Mode of worship and guidelines or regulations in the Code of Conduct of the Movement, urging them not to turn the seminar to an academic exercise.

“The new board must rise to the occasion and give a more positive direction to spiritual/religious activities in the Movement.  It will be necessary to make a critical assessment of the situation in the Mssions so as to determine the current state of missionary/religious activities as against what it used to be in the past.

He advised the Misison board to adhere strictly to the Movement’s traditions and mode of worship  to ensure uniformoty in the conduct of religious programmes.

“From now on, it is imperative for all Chief Imams, Imams, Alfas and members to strictly adhere to and ensure that all religious activities, rites and programmes are conducted in conformity with the Mode of worship and code of conduct.

“Participants must resist the temptation to turn the seminar to an academic exercise or general exposition or ‘Tafsir’ of the glorious Qur’an or the ‘Sunat.’

“The exercise should be on how Amar-ul-Islam code conduct, actof worship and religious rites/rituals like Salat, Haqeeqat, Janazah, Fidau and others are well carried out,” Barrister Ojelade said.
