Former National Legal Adviser of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Muiz Banire has stated that adhering to the tenets of Islam in accordance with the Qur’an and Sunnah is the only pathway to good life, particularly in the face of the current global catastrophe.
Dr. Banire, one of the few principled politicians in Nigeria, made this known on Sunday at the quarterly workshop of the Lekki Muslim Ummah (LEMU) at Lekki Central Mosque Complex, Lagos.
Muslim News learnt that the workshop featured other speakers, comprising academics, professionals, Islamic scholars and leaders in both public and private sectors.
According to him, “In the face of global catastrophe, the only way to enjoy a good living is to submit ourselves to the will of Allah. It is only through this we can be saved at the moment. It’s only through this we can enjoy life.
Dr. Banire, who chaired the event, stated that leading a good life requires adhering to the tenets of Islam.
“That is why Allah says He hasn’t brought us to the world for nothing, except to worship Him and once you are able or worship Him in the manner established by the Qur’an and Hadith, certainly we will continue to enjoy a good life.
“During our days in MSSN, we used to refer to the saying of the Qur’an and Hadith as evidence, but the moment you said but…, you’re on your own.
“A good life is an inheritance of a Muslim. It is something that we have inherited since we profess to be Muslims. Once you submit to the total will of Almighty Allah, certainly everything you do will be leading to a good life,” he noted.
