Muhammadu Sanusi II, the former Emir of Kano and leader of the Tijjaniyya Sect in Nigeria, called on Nigerians to stop cursing their leaders due to the current hardship in the country.
As Sanusi spoke to Sect members in Sokoto on Tuesday, he expressed optimism that things would change for the better.
According to my understanding of economics, we must suffer in order to get things right.”
It’s up to us to be patient and fervent in our prayers, and we must stand up for what’s right in our own way.
The Holy Prophet forbids us from abusing or cursing our leaders.
“We will not engage in corrupt practices and other atrocities because our religion prohibits them.
We must be committed to achieving peace and development in our society, he said.
In addition, Sanusi emphasized the unity of the Muslim Ummah and advised Muslim organizations to set up schools and empowerment programs to empower their followers.
He stressed that Islam abhors redundancy, begging, and other vices, and encourages prudence and transparency in dealings.
According to the former Emir, people should practice their religious rights in accordance with Islamic teachings.
The imam warned them against promoting issues that would divide the ummah.
