The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) chapter of the Muslim Media Practitioners of Nigeria (MMPN) has implored Muslims to always showcase the virtues of trustworthiness, generosity, kindness, love, tolerance, good neighborliness, and peaceful coexistence as exemplified by Prophet Muhammad (SAW) in his lifetime.
The Chairman of MMPN in the FCT, Hajiya Medina Nadabo, in a statement on Tuesday, said Prophet Muhammad whose exemplary lifestyles had remained relevant thousands of years after his demise must serve as a model for all at this trying period in our life.
She said the deeds and sayings of Prophet Muhammad were enough examples to establish a peaceful and egalitarian society.
This, she said, is deeply reflected in his Hadith in Sahih al-Bukhari, 6136, where the Prophet was reported to have said, “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should not hurt his neighbour and whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should serve his guest generously and whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should speak what is good or keep silent.”
The Chairman said Wednesday September 27, 2023, declared by the federal government as a public holiday to mark this year’s Eid-ul-Maulud celebration in commemoration of the birth of Prophet Muhammad should be used to promote, preserve, protect and cater for spiritual advancements of Muslims as being championed by the MMPN.
