The Nasrul-Lahi-l-Fatih Society (NASFAT) on Tuesday urged Muslims to emulate Prophet Muhammad’s noble character in relation with one another to foster good society.
NASFAT, a civil society group, made the call at its 2021 prayer and lecture to mark the Maolud-an-Nabiyy, held at Ikeja Central Mosque in Lagos.
Speaking at the event, the NASFAT Chief Missioner, Alhaji Abdulazeez Onike, said Muslims should live righteously daily and not only during the feasts in honour of Muhammad.
Onike, who referred to the prophet as God’s greatest gift to humanity, said that, if, as a people, we follow non-violence, persuasion and dialogue as preached and practised by Muhammad, society would be a lot better.
“It is our interpersonal relationship that would bond us or disperse us thereby either enlivening our belief or discarding it in the mind of the people around us,” he said.
He said Prophet Muhammad being celebrated is an embodiment of service and sacrifice that benefitted humanity.
“The feast of Maolud is vital to the existence of mankind and we should mark it with joy amidst fervent prayers for peace in our society,” he said. (NAN)
