An Islamic scholar, Dr Abdullahi Shuaib, has lamented the worrisome upsurge of get-rich-quick syndrome among the Nigerian youths, urging parents to educate their children on the dangers of quick wealth.

He expressed worry that youths were now drifting away from value and belief systems, which serve as moral compass with which they navigate life struggles. 

He spoke at the ninth Islamic Holiday Course for the year 2022 organised by Standard Bearers Islamic Organisation in Abuja. 

About 200 students drawn from Niger, Nasarawa, Kaduna, Sokoto and Kogi states and the FCT attended the week-long course, which featured series of lectures, dawah training and interactions.

Dr Shuaib, who is also the CEO of Jaiz Charity and Development Foundation, explained that children are not only divine gifts to parents but also trust placed under their guardianship by Almighty Allah. 

He said, “Today, we have seen the youth drifting away from moral value and belief system that we used to know. Everybody wants to make money without making any sacrifice. Everybody wants to jump the queue. Everybody wants to be something within a short possible time. Of course, this is not possible, there are processes to do that. 

“We should inculcate the values and belief system of doing what is right and forbidden what is wrong for the youngsters to recognise the fact that we are representatives of the Creator on the earth. Else, our children may become a source of grief and pain for us and the society.”

The Abuja coordinator of Standard Bearers, Idris Jumah, said the programme was designed for Muslim youths to nurture them to be righteous and inculcate in them moral values.
