The Rector of the Markaz Arabic and Islamic Training Centre, Agege, Lagos, Sheikh Abeebullah Adam Al-Ilory, has cursed the individuals who allegedly placed a charm on his path to the central mosque.
Daily Trust reports that the Rector made this revelation on Saturday during the daily Ramadhan lecture at the school premises.
Recall that the cleric had a near-death experience in February 2022 when he fell ill and was hospitalized.
He has since recovered but unable to deliver the daily Ramadhan tafseer at the institution, rather, he announced that while other scholars deliver sermon on week days during the 2023 fasting month, he would only be able to lecture the audience on weekends.
The successor of the grand sheikh; Adam Al Ilory had earlier shed tears while reminiscing on his late father and also expressed displeasure at the evil machinations of some unknown individuals who attacked him.
He said: “On Monday, my path to the mosque was laced with ‘akadi’ (an evil charm). It was placed on the entrance. This is the reason why I said we would curse some people. We have just started this and we would continue henceforth. Students are to read Suratul Tawbah, teachers too. Whosoever did that in this premises, may God fight him”
According to him, he is not used to or known for engaging in fetish acts because his father only bequeathed to him ‘prayers for protection’.
He therefore cursed the plotters of the evil act by beseeching on Allah to fight the perpetrators while also calling on the listeners to join in cursing them.
“You can’t escape from God, what is that difficult? Is it not this life? If we say we leave the perpetrator to God, we are merely …Only God doesn’t pursue one before catching up on one. For the sake of this Ramadan, for the sake of this month, all of them won’t scale through because I did not contest this position with anyone. May God consider this fact, may all the curses I’ve placed on him come to past”
