Hardship In Nigeria Is Trial From Allah, Those Who Endure Will Receive Mercy — MURIC

by Victor Ndubuisi

Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has advised Muslims in Nigeria to view the current economic difficulties as a test from Allah and to persevere in order to overcome them and obtain blessings from the Almighty.

Prof. Ishaq Akintola, Executive Director of MURIC, sent out a Sallah statement on Thursday in which the group urged Muslims to ask Allah for forgiveness, repent of their greed, and acknowledge the benefits that He has bestowed upon them.

MURIC emphasised that Allah’s kindness and blessings will be bestowed to those who patiently endure the ordeal.

In addition, MURIC urged Nigerians to ask God for forgiveness and to stop placing blame elsewhere and instead take a positive view of their country.

The statement reads in part; “We congratulate the Nigerian Ummah (Muslim Community) on the successful completion of the 2024 (1445AH) Ramadan season. In particular, we felicitate with Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Kashim Shettima as well as the Sultan of Sokoto and President General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar.

“It is our wish to ponder over the present economic hardship being experienced by Nigerians. In the first place, we submit that Nigeria has been blessed in all ramifications including a wonderful and extended landscape, rich and fertile land, unlimited mineral resources as well as human capital wealth. Qur’an 20:118-119 and 16:112 alluded to these blessings.

“But in spite of Allah’s warning that Shaytan (Satan) is man’s open enemy and that we should not allow him to deceive us into forgetting Allah’s blessings (20:117), we hobnobbed with Shaytan, became greedy and committed evil on both land and sea (30:41) and failed to appreciate Allah (fakafarat bi ani’umillahi) and as a result of our ingratitude, Allah made us taste the pangs of hunger and fear (16:112).

“We therefore urge Nigerians to see the current hardship as a direct impact of our bad past and a trial (2:155 and 29:2) which we should patiently contend with and seek the forgiveness of Allah in order to overcome the hardship and receive divine blessings. According to the Glorious Qur’an, those who face the trial with forbearance will receive the mercy and blessings of Allah (2:157).

“Consequently, MURIC calls on Nigerians to desist from trading blames, to cultivate a positive attitude towards their country, to seek forgiveness from their Supreme Creator, turn a new leaf and face the future with patience and hardwork.”
