Chief Imam of Uhud Mosque, Naibawa, Kano Dr. Kidiri Bashir has warned against greed, selfishness and the appetite for the acquisition of materials among the people.
The Chief Imam gave the warning in a sermon he delivered shortly after he led the 2021 Eid Fitr prayers at the open prayer ground, Naibawa Kano.
The Cleric observed that the current insecurities and other challenges facing the country are occasioned by insatiable wants and competitive attitude of the people who are bent on acquiring wealth by all means.
The Islamic Scholar also said the killings and maimings in the land are caused by the quest to get power and materials pointing out that such action is an aberration from the teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who admonished believers to be patient at all times as nobody will leave the world without getting what Allah has for them.
The Cleric also expressed disgust over the prevailing drug abuse among the people adding that it had led to series of other crimes in the society.
While lamenting the case of a boy allegedly killed under the bridge recently, Dr. Bashir advised the people to always follow the right path in their quest for survival.
