Eid-ul Fitr (2017) Message From the National Chief Imam Sheikh Dr. Osman Nuhu Sharubutu.

;

National Chief Imam’s message for the Eid-ul Fitr 2017 through his honoured Secretary, Alhaji Khuzaima.

“His Eminence the National Chief Imam of Ghana, Shaikh Dr. Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, has asked me to call on the youth to celebrate the upcoming Eidul Fitr in moderation as commanded by the teachings of Islam and admonishment of Prophet Muhammed (peace and blessings of Allah be upon Him).

In the interest of Allah and the nation, His Eminence chooses to address the menace of corruption during this year’s  festivity of Eidul Fitr.
His Eminence wonders why we build a system of governance that largely makes us ignorant of Allah’s commands and reluctant to adher to honesty and patriotism, which are fundamental values of all religions.
Our inability of total respect for religuous beliefs makes us forgetful of our destiny and the day of reckoning. 
This is one of the major reasons people easily practice and promote corruption with impunity in our society.

Muslims and Christians believe that every soul is accountable to God for every act that it has done in this world.
His Eminence has asked me to remind you of the following words of Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon Him): 
“The son of Adam will not pass away from Allah until he is asked about five things: how he lived his life, and how he utilized his youthful age. How he earned his wealth, how  he spent his wealth, and what he did with his knowledge.” {Tirmidhi}
Nowadays bribery and corruption have become a norm in our lives in many part of the world, and we take part in it without even thinking! This is WRONG, and it is a big sin in Islam.
What is corruption?
Corruption is the misuse of entrusted power for personal or private gain. 

Brothers and sisters, the menace of corruption has become gigantic now that it is being practiced openly. Those in power start demanding what they want, and those who give are very open about it as well. Both parties regard it as a norm; they don’t feel bad about it because – in their reasoning – everybody else is doing it. Those who choose not do it are considered “unintelligent.”
WAY FORWARD
1. We must bring back and intensify the teaching of religious values and morals at the senior high school level.
2. We must ensure that the teachings are being complemented by action and practical application of the contents.
3. Government must put stringent measures to ensure that the state prosecutes culprits and find ways of diverting the energies of the youth into productive ventures that will compell them to abhor corruption.
4. We must collectively do everything possible right from our homes that will make corruption unacceptable and unattractive.

5. Religious leaders, Chiefs, magajiyas, queen mothers and all stakeholders must speak against it publicly and privately and must ensure that it is not encouraged by any lackadaisical acts or attitudes of leaders or their followers. 
God bless our homeland and make it greater and stronger.”

A Third Chance? Let’s see!

It is somehow true, that in most cases there is often a “second chance”, that chance which presents itself for that necessary corrections in life to be carried out.

But do you also know that hardly does a “third chance” present its self. which is why it is very important for us to put into good use the opportunities which are available to us. We must grab that opportunity by its horn, never to let go, until we make something great out of it.

This is my Monday motivation for​ you. Kindly share it, you never know, someone needs it most. I wish you a significantly fruitful day, and a lovely night. PEACE and LOVE.

Thank you for being here.

“A better life” Draft.

A better life is the life that is full of kindness and appreciation for the little things in life.

Not that which is full of ungrateful attitudes and an unendless complaints of dissatisfaction.

A better life is devoid of Mum and Dad’s bitter complaints of your ungratefulness.

You should know that you are doomed when Dad and Mum ever reminds you of this.

“We never for once thought​ you could do this to us after all that we have done for you. We sacrificed it all just to give you a better life, a better life that we never had the opportunity to embrace.

A better life that we always desired for but never had a smell of it.

Why are you so ungrateful towards our best for you to gain what we missed, a better life.”

Never deprive yourself of their blessings. Your parents are waiting for that call, they’re missing you sick while you have turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to their longing for you.

It’s never too late, remember their sacrifices and love for you and get back at them and show them that love of appreciation and gratitude.

They uplifted you, from nothing  to somebody, they gave you life, they gave you a better life.
