ILORIN – An educationist, Hajia Khadijat Olayiwola-Imam, on Tuesday in Ilorin warned Muslims against extravagant spending while neglecting payment of Zakat.

Olayiwola-Imam gave the warning while delivering a Ramadan lecture entitled: ” Zakat vs Extravagance: The Neglected Strong Pillar in Islam.’’

The lecture, which held at the Government House, organised by the wife of Kwara governor, Mrs Omolewa Ahmed.

According to her, Zakat is of the five pillars of Islam which has been neglected largely because people find it difficult to share with the needy.

She said Zakat to ensure love, and equality, adding Islam rejects extremism in any form. [eap_ad_2] “Zakat is a stipulation by God which enjoins all Muslims to give out a part of their wealth which had been saved or in excess for a year or more.

“It is unfortunate Muslim adherents are neglecting this very important tenet of Islam,” she said.

Also speaking at the forum, Dr Khayrat Abikan of the Department of Family Medicine, of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, advised people to take care of the skin.

Abikan, who warned bleaching cream could lead to brain damage or cancer, added that using lukewarm water rather than hot or cold water best in cleansing the skin. (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
