Allah not interested in worship of the ignorants, says cleric

An Islmaic cleric, Dr. Abdul- Hakeem Abdul-Lateef, has declared that Allah is not interested in worship of the ignorants. Abdul-Lateef who doubles as Lagos state commissioner for home affairs, therefore advised Nigerians, politicians and public office holders to seek Qur’an knowledge, stating that this is indispensable to understanding what Allah requires of us as His creatures.

Dr. Abdul-Hakeem who was special guest lecturer at the passing out ceremony organised for graduating students of the Right Path Arabic Institute, Lagos stated that there is no age limit to seeking Qur’an knowledge. It is also of utmost importance to seek Qura’an knowledge, he said, because it instils fear of Allah in the seeker and brings him in worship closer to his creator.

While congratulating the graduands on the successful completion of their course of study, the cmmissioner said that the country “is bedevilled with socio-economic and political challenges because we have relegated the words of Allah in both our individual and national lives. “Many Muslims of today are Muslims without knowledge whereas it is only through knowledge that we can discover the true meaning of the essence of Allah.

Allah (swt) is not interested in the worship of the ignorant. I therefore want to implore all Nigerians particularly those in government to go in search of knowledge that would improve their relationship with Allah and not one that would bring the wrath of Allah upon them.”

Also speaking at the event, Mudir, Dar’ul Naim Islamic Centre, Sheikh Abdul Majeed Imran Eleha stated that with increasing rate of adult male and female enrolling for Qur’an classes, the future of Islam in Yoruba land is bright.

Sheikh Abdul Majeed stated this while commending the graduands on their steadfastness and dedication to learning in spite of the burden of responsibilities and economic challenges in the country. “I want to advice you all to put to practice what you have learnt at the institute. Let it be known to you that any knowledge that one possesses and it is not of benefit to others is a waste.

So, I want to charge you all to make a mark and strive for more knowledge as the completion of this stage should be the beginning of another. “Let what you have learnt reflect in your dealings and interactions with the public.

Let them see you as an ambassador for Islam and not one that would cause blemish to the good image of the religion of peace, Islam,” he advised. Earlier in his speech, Director of the Institute, Mallam Al-Imam Yunus remarked that the journey so far has been eventful for both the management and students of the institute.

He said, “The journey so far has been full of successes and countless challenges both academics, financial and psychological.”

But today, we are all gathered to give praises to Allah and appreciate every one of us that had contributed to make this event a reality.”
