Every believer and most especially Muslims have been enjoined to stay upright before their creator in their daily relationship with their fellow men.
This word of admonition was given by the Leader of Islahudeen Movement of Nigeria, Sheikh Muslim Mukadam Hussain Akinola during the 7th Ramadan Lecture organized by an All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial aspirant, Alhaji Moshood Olalekan Adeoti in Iwo.
According to the Muslim cleric, every believer in Almighty Allah ought to be conscious of the hereafter in all their daily relationship with everyone, irrespective of religious affiliations.
“We need to be always conscious of whatever we do to fellow humans, as we will all one day give accounts of our deeds,” Sheikh Akinola stated.
While speaking on the topic: Cautionary Advice About the Torment of the Doom’s Day, the Muslim cleric stressed that the journey leading to the hereafter starts from the believer’s earthly sojourn.
“Every believer’s journey to the hereafter will either end up in Paradise or hell.
“As for the destination, there is no in-between position, as one will always end up either in Paradise or hell,” Sheikh Akinola stated further.
He therefore admonished Muslims and other believers to strive at all times be in good rapport with everyone.
Different speakers on the occasion included community, political and religious leaders, who all eulogised the organizer of the event for not ceasing to hold the annual event since it started about seven years ago.
At the well-attended event, the Timi of Ede, Oba Munirudeen Adesola Lawal, who spoke on behalf of the numerous traditional rulers in attendance, prayed for the success of the celebrant in all his future political undertaking.
In his response, the host of the annual event, Alhaji Adeoti, in the company of his wife, Alhaja Mujidat Adeoti, was full of gratitude to Allah and the people for honouring him with their attendance.
The event was attended by political, religious and community leaders from all political and religious divides, while gift items were later distributed to widows and the least privileged in the state.
