The Chief Imam of Masjid Assalam, Maitama Abuja, Imam Muhammed Usman Sagir, has called for decisive action against illicit drugs and substance abuse, particularly among young people.

He emphasized the urgent need to intensify campaigns and efforts to combat drug abuse, aiming for a safer and more productive society.

Speaking at the 18th Annual International Youth Essay Competition Seminar and Prize Presentation organised by the Crystal Muslim Organisation (CMO) in Abuja, Imam Sagir expressed concern that current efforts might not be sufficient to address the high rates of youth involvement in drug abuse.

Another scholar, Ustaz Muhammed Zaharadeen from Al-Falah Academy, discussed the transformative potential of social media in shaping lives and businesses.

He stressed the importance of nurturing positive thoughts and using social media positively for societal improvement.

Alhaji Muhammed Shettima, the National Amir of CMO, explained that the essay competition aimed to encourage Muslim youths to deepen their understanding of Islam, engage with Islamic literature, and foster a culture of research and reading.

During the event, winners across primary and secondary school categories received cash prizes, with the overall winner also receiving additional prizes including a giant bicycle.

The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, encouraged young Muslims to serve as positive ambassadors of Islam and to reject drug abuse.
