Deputy chief Imam of Fibre Mosque, Jos, Sheikh Auwal Danladi has reminded the people to always reflect on the absence of those who lived before them who are no more alive.
He gave the advice in a sermon he delivered shortly before he led the Jumaat prayers.
Sheikh Danladi said constant reflection on the death of loved ones, parents, brothers, sisters including leaders is a pointer that all things shall pass away.
The Cleric, therefore, warned believers against selfishness and greed which he said are largely responsible for crimes against humanity.
He particularly expressed worries over what he described as spiritual blindness among the people caused by greed which leads many to deprived orphans and the less privileged their rights.
Sheikh Danladi reminded the Worshippers to always remember that life will come to an end.
“You didn’t know when you were
born and you don’t know when
you will die.” He admonished.
He called on the congregation to count themselves lucky to be alive and use the remaining days of their lives to repent and avoid disappointment on the last day.
“All our wealth, money, position, children that we look up to for our pride will not be beneficial to us in the hereafter except those with pure heart who carried out good deeds.” Sheikh Danladi said.
While praying for Nigeria for peace and progress, the Imam called on the citizens to embrace love of one another pointing out that their conduct is on record before Allah.
