An Islamic cleric and Head of Bab-es-Salam Home, Imam Hassan Idris Tahir has advised Muslims to continue to follow Allah’s commands to have rest of mind.
He spoke when Lotus Bank in partnership with AIMS Media Company Limited hosted orphans and children with special needs at the orphanage home.
He said, “One thing about submission to Allah is not something that when you do, it benefits Allah, it’s something that when you do, it benefits you because whatever we refer to as Ibaadah or whatever Allah commands you to do, you benefit from them.
“As the Prophet says in one Hadith that; ‘save yourself from the hell even if it is half of a date’, so within your capacity, assist others because one thing we must understand is that Allah relates with us according to how we relate with others. If you want Allah to be merciful to you, be merciful to others. The Prophet (S.A.W) also said that ‘the one who doesn’t show mercy, won’t see mercy,’” Imam Tahir said.
Speaking at the event, the Divisional Head, Corporate Services, Lotus Bank, Mr. Funsho Tooki expressed happiness that the bank has been able to put smiles on the faces of orphans and people with special needs.
