EMULATE THE GOOD VIRTUES OF PROPHET MOHAMMED – Prof. Ibe Charges Muslims.
As Muslims celebrate the Eid – el Fitiri festival, to mark the successful end of one month dawn to sunset fasting, in the holy month of Ramadan, Chancellor of Gregory University Uturu, Prof Gregory Ibe has enjoined them to sustain the good virtues that made Prophet Mohammed great.
Speaking on the heels of this year’s celebration, he charged Muslim faithfuls to use this opportunity to “offer prayers for peace, unity, prosperity and an end to the insecurities that have tended to destroy our beloved country Nigeria”.
Speaking further, he encouraged the faithfuls to put to good use the lessons learned during the Ramadan period,in order to foster love and unity within the society, sharing with the less privileged persons as examplified holy Prophet Mohammed.
Professor Ibe maintained that if Muslim faithfuls both in Nigeria and around the world uphold and practice the teachings of the Holy Koran, peace and tranquility will reign, while insecurity and corruption that have bedeviled the nation will be a thing of the past.
“This therefore is an opportunity for our Muslim brothers and sisters to deepen their relationship with Allah, depicted life of sacrifice, charity and love for one another. I therefore urge all Muslims resident in Abia particularly, and their brethren across Nigeria, to continue to sustain these values and thereuse them as building blocks for the attainment of a peaceful Nigerian nation where everyone will be happy to actualise their dreams”, he concluded.
