Sheikh Musa Ladan, Chief Imam of Duala National Mosque in Cameroun, was among speakers at the Annual Maulud celebration organized by the Resource Forum of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria which took place at the conference hall of the Abuja National Mosque, Saturday.
Sheikh Musa Ladan pointed out that, for the obvious fact that Muslims have one Qur’an and recognized Prophet Muhammad (S) as the Seal of all the prophets who came with the final message of Islam, division among them is therefore unnecessary.
The Islamic scholar who said he accepted invitation to attend the Unity Week organized by the Islamic Movement in Nigeria under Sheikh Zakzaky, expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the programme, which he said has expanded his horizon on the need for Muslim unity.
According to him, if Islamic scholars can emulate the footsteps of Sheikh Zakzaky, unity of the Muslim Ummah can easily be achieved. He however expressed hope that, the rate at which people are recognizing the unmatched status of the Ahlul Bayt under the guidance of Sheikh Zakzaky Muslims will eventually be united. “Following the teachings of Ahlul Bayt is the only way to genuine unity and eventual salvation,” he stressed.
Sheikh Musa Ladan said, through propagating the teachings of the Ahlul Bayt, Sheikh Zakzaky succeeded in uniting Muslims despite their ethnic and tribal inclination as did the Prophet during his time. “I was amazed at the sea of people that trek from distant places to attend Arba’een of Imam Hussein (AS). I have never seen this in my life! This can only be attributed to true leadership and faithful followership on the platform of genuine teaching of God chosen personalities- the Ahlul Bayt”.
He also said, the miracles he witnessed during the Unity Week, when the Arabic word of “Hussain” was formed by clouds at the venue of the event, Hussainiyyah Baqiyyatullah in Zaria, and in other places was sufficient testimony for any sound mind to surrender to the teachings of Ahlul Bayt and their Imamate. “I saw the writing with my own eye. I am therefore a living witness”.
Sheikh Musal Ladan therefore called on Muslims to come together under the umbrella of the Prophet’s Pure Progeny (Ahlul Bayt) saying that, “The concealed is now obvious, the secret is manifested for those who geuinely need salvation”.
