Kwara Governor Canvasses for Moderation of Islamic Sermons


Kwara State Governor, Alhaji  Abdulfatah Ahmed, has advocated the establishment of a Council of Ulamas for the moderation of preaching by Islamic clerics.

This, he said, would help in  ensuring  such sermons are in accordance with Islamic tenets.

Ahmed, who said this at the weekend in Ilorin, during the public presentation of a book, “Language Skills for Arabic Students”, said the council should be composed of reputable and knowledgeable Islamic scholars.

According to him, “such a move will also provide an opportunity to instil in our youths, the values of peaceful co-existence, love, integrity and equity which, Insha Allah, will insulate them from fundamentalist preaching through the internet and other sources.”

The governor who stressed that Muslims must not allow the actions of a few to define them and shape perception of Islam, explained that leaders in all spheres of life should always preach eternal values of peaceful coexistence as enshrined in the Holy Quran in order to counter the stigmatisation of Islam.

He also urged  Muslims to shun acts of violence by safeguarding the lives of the innocent at all times.
