An Islamic Cleric, Imam Kamarudeen Salawu has said that despite the various challenges confronting the Nation, that the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is carrying out the will of God for Nigeria.
Salawu who spoke this morning at the 21st day “special prayers and prophetic declaration by the Anointed” for President Buhari’s re-election said there is a need for vigilance by adherents of all faiths to shun evil men that come with money to buy their conscience or seek for prayers, as the next general elections draws near.
He said Allah Most High has created the heavens and the earth and everything between them, and that Allah is the only owner of everything to be found there. He said as such, that everything between them, as well as of everything below the surface of the earth (including the underground resources) belong to him.
He said, “Allah the Almighty says in the Noble Qur’an, to Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is on the earth, and all that is between them, and all that is under the soil.) Taha, 20:6]
“O Allah, we know nothing but what You teach us. You are the All-Knower, the Wise. O Allah, guide us on what is good for us, and benefit us from what You taught us, and increase our knowledge
” Show us the righteous things as righteous and help us to do them, and show us the wrong things as bad and help us to keep away from them,” he said.
The cleric added that, “O Allah, our Lord, lead us out from the depths of darkness and illusion, unto the lights of erudition and knowledge, and from the muddy shallows of lusts unto the heavens of Your Vicinity.”
“Evil men and women are parading themselves as saints and wanting to buy adherents of both religions in Nigeria with their ill-gotten wealth.
“May Allah cause them to fail because Neither Islam nor Christianity can be bought with money in Nigeria and those banking on stolen dollars to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari against the will of God are playing with Fire,” he added.
The Cleric said the evil men will come seeking for prayers while pretending to be for good just “to get our acceptance. But we shall resist and rebuke them Insha Allah.”
” I am grateful for being a part of this excellent programme. And it indeed tells us that a Christian is not an enemy of a Muslim and a Muslim not an enemy of a Christian. We have been together in the past 21 days praying. And we shall continue like this after 40 days and even forever Insha Allah praying for the common good of Nigeria,” he said.
The prayer session had in attendance over 500 clerics drawn from both the christian and Islamic religion.
