PRESIDENT BUHARI ADVISES MUSLIMS ON ELD EL-MAULUD CELEBRATION



The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has advised the Muslims to follow the good shining step of Prophet Muhammad because violent extremism is the single biggest challenge facing the image of Islam today.

He made this statement at the Muslim Ummah on Sunday on the occasion of the Maulud celebration to commemorate the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad.

"The greatest honour Muslims could do the Prophet Muhammad is to follow his shining examples of non-violence, peaceful disposition and remarkable virtues of patience."

"Putting into practice the great virtues for which the Holy Prophet Muhammad is historically famous and revered would have a far greater impact on changing our attitudes and behaviours than the best sermons ever will."

"The indiscriminate killing of innocent people, the kidnapping of female students and forcing them into marriage and conversion is contrary to teachings and personal examples of the Prophet Muhammad."

"Violent extremism is the single biggest challenge facing the image of Islam today which has been hijacked by a minority of misguided elements who are using religion to cover-up their criminal agenda."

"There is the urgent need for increased vigilance by Muslims in order to frustrate and stop the spread of violent ideologies that are causing human havocs and tragedies around the world.

"Extremism is like a cancer that needs to be attacked in its early stages before it grows malignantly out of control and harm the society."
