By  | 

The Spiritual Head of the Mahdiyyat Movement Worldwide, Khalifat Umar Suraqat Animashaun, has asked Muslims to use the opportunity of the Eid-il-fitr celebration to seek for God’s intervention amidst the ravaging insecurity in the country.

In a message, the cleric felicitated with Muslim faithfuls across the globe on the auspicious occasion of Eid celebration which marked the end of the thirty-day Ramadan fast.

Khalifat Animashaun also used the medium to congratulate Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi on his turbaning as the head of the Tijaniyyat Tariqat in Nigeria. He prayed that the spirit of Sheikh Ahmoda Tijani (RTA) continue to be with him and guide him aright.

“We state categorically that all the members of the Mahdiyyat movement are offshoot of the Tijaniyyat Tariqat and we also share the pains and blessings of the Tijanniyat members worldwide,” he said.

The cleric sent condolences and offered prayers to the family of Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeem Christian Church of God (RCCG) on the death of his son.

He added: “In this period of insecurity all over the country, we use this opportunity to pray for Nigeria and all her leaders. We advise our leaders to desist from the act of playing politics with the welfare of the nation and we advise citizens to also see their neighbors as themselves. The government should try their best in making provision for the citizens of the country.”

Khalifat Animashaun admonished Muslims to imbibe the lessons of the holy month and hold steadfast to the fear of the Almighty Allah.

“It is only the fear of the Almighty Allah that can save the nation from the perennial insecurity and the global pandemic that is ravaging the whole world.

“Let’s obey our leaders, love ourselves, shun dishonesty, avoid pride, avariceness, slough, envy, laziness in worship, hot-temperedness and filthy acts.”

According to the cleric, the long awaited Mahdi has risen in Ijebu-Ode Ogun State Nigeria. The Mahdi has been referred to by the Muslims is also the second coming of Jesus Christ (The Promised Messiah) that has been awaited by the Christian world.

“The message he brought to the world is the message of Justice, Love and Obedience. Whosoever believes in the MAHDI shall have everlasting live and shall inherit paradise.”
