Cleric urges Muslims not to miss the night of majesty


IBADAN –  The Chairman Oyo State Pilgrim Board, Alhaji Taofeek Akewugberu, on Friday urged Muslims not to miss the blessings of the Night of Majesty (Lailatul-qadri) so as to prepare for their hereafter.

Akewugberu gave the advice on Friday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan.

According to him, the night of majesty is a night of blessing within the last 10 days of Ramadan.

Akewugberu said that any act of worship made in that night, if it coincided with the intention of Allah, would be rewarded as someone who had performed a thousand months of worship for Allah.

“Only God knows who will inherit whatever you have in this world but the supplication you made in that night of majesty will be what you prepare for yourself and meet in the hereafter,’’ he said.

The cleric also advised Muslims to endeavour to perform It’kaf.[eap_ad_2] 

He said that It’kaf was an act of worship whereby a person put his/herself in a secluded place, especially in a Mosque, to pray to Allah by reciting the Holy Qur’an and doing other supplications so as to seek for forgiveness of Allah.

He said that It’kaf was also being observed during the last 10 days of Ramadan.

“It is in the Hadith (tradition) of the prophet that whenever Ramadan is counted up to 20, Prophet Muhammed would redress as if he was going for war.

“He would informed his wives to be prepare that the time to gain more reward from Allah has come.’’

Akewugberu said that In-tikaf did not exempt anybody and advised women who wish to perform it to seek the permission of their husbands before performing it.

According to him, women who are doing their menstrual period are exempted from performing In-tikaf. (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
