The leadership of the Jama’atu Nasril Islam headed by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Abubakar Sa’ad lll, on Tuesday cautioned Nigerian politicians against making hate speech ahead of the general elections.

The religious group also called on the Muslim community to pray for hitch-free elections in the country.

The JNI Secretary-General, Dr Khalid Aliyu, in a statement on behalf of the Sultan, noted that the country had fallen into hard times and required prayers of all Muslims.

JNI said, “Therefore, to Muslims, Du’a (prayers) is paramount in all circumstances of our lives, most especially in trying times like what we are witnessing daily in Nigeria today as a result of political permutations resulting in grave uncertainties towards the forthcoming 2019 general elections commencing in February.

“The call for prayer has inexorably become necessary because nothing is as honourable before Allah as prayer. For whoever to whom the door of prayer is open will have his prayers answered.

“Thus, Jama’atu Nasril Islam, under the leadership of His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General, JNI, uses this medium to call on the Nigerian Muslim Ummah to engage in fervent prayers considering the fact that the 2019 general elections are around the corner.

“This call has become imperative bearing in mind that as Muslims, supplications to Allah, the Almighty, is the nucleus of worship, and there is nothing that is dearer to Allah than invocation. It is also the most honourable thing before Him, the Most High, and a surest way to obtaining requests put before Him.

“Hence, Muslims are implored to frequently engage in Du’a, especially for the seemingly palpable fear and anxiety from some quarters towards a resentful-free 2019 general elections.”
