Muslims have been urged to acquire education in order to understand and practice their religion better, towards living an exemplary life.
Education helps us understand, practice religion better — UNILAG Imam
The Chief Imam of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Prof Murtala Bidmos, has urged Muslims to acquire education in order to understand and practice their religion better and "practise it well.”
The Chief Imam of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Prof Murtala Bidmos, gave the charge while speaking at the 17th annual national convention of the Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta Muslim Alumni Association (FUNAAMAA).
"We must not fail to capture the essence of education in the gaunt of our religious practices," Bidmos said as quoted by The Nation.
"With education, we would understand our religion better and practise it well.”
He said with proper study of the Qur’an, Nigerians will acquire education and unity, virtues which most lack.
According to the FUNAAMAA National President, Abdulrazaq Adebowale, the two-day convention was an exposition of the divine order, worldview and ideology that allow all men, Muslims and non-Muslims, to interact to achieve sustainable harmony, peace and orderliness in this world.
