Atiku Abubakar Preaches Compassion, Tolerance, Peace At Maulud!!!



Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar urges Muslims to emulate Prophet Muhammad's shining virtues of compassion, tolerance and commitment to peace.


Atiku in a message to Muslims on the occasion of Maulud to celebrate the birthday of the Prophet of Islam, reminds them that the greatest honour they could do to Muhammad is to practise his positive examples and notes with sadness that the activities of some misguided elements around the world "are inconsistent with the virtues for which Muhammad was famous, such as respect for life, tolerance and avoiding violence against the innocent."
                  
According to the Turaki Adamawa, "deliberate aggression was never part of the virtues of the Prophet of Islam lived for and, therefore, Muslims have a binding duty to reclaim the good name of Islam by neutralising the pernicious influence of extremists’’, regreting that "the violent interpretation of Islam by a minority of extremists that espouse poisonous ideologies is giving the religion a bad name."

He says the Maulud celebration should be an occasion for sober reflection and a reminder "of our duty to be good ambassadors of Islam."

As Muslims observe the occasion, the former Vice President advises them to rededicate ourselves to the noble virtues and exemplary life Prophet Muhammad.
