JNI calls for special supplication against incessant killings

By Halima ABDULKADIRI

Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has called for special supplication against incessant horrific killings in Nigeria.

The organization made the call in a press statement signed by its Secretary-General, Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu on Sunday.

According to the statement, the call for prayer has become necessary as nothing is honourable before Allah (SWT) than His servant to be humble and submissive through prayers to Him.

“This call has become imperative bearing in mind that human lives have continued to be exterminated and even immolated unchallenged as we saw in Beni-sheikh, Kaga local government area of Borno state and Gidan Bawa, Isa local government area of Sokoto state.

“Muslims are therefore implored to fervently and faithfully resort to Allah, the Exceedingly Beneficent and Benevolently Merciful in the face of these calamities by engaging in: (i) Al-Qunoot in the last Raka’ah of each obligatory and non-obligatory prayers, specifically to seek intervention from Allah (SWT); (ii) observance of Adhkar (remembrance of Allah); (iii) supplications in Sujood (prostrating position) in all circumstances and (iv) Du’a (prayers) at all times, particularly
that there is seeming anxiety and palpable fear that has elicited many citizens’ minds in
recent time.

“We should sincerely devote time at nights and call unto Allah, the Responder to prayers,” the statement read in part.

The statement added that the Sultan further calls on all Imams, Majaalis (knowledge seeking gatherings), Halqas (study circles), Madaaris and Makarantun Allo (Islamic schools), as well as the leadership of all Muslim organizations/societies’ in Nigeria to commence special prayers in calamitous situations and trying times (Qunootun-Nawazil), and seek Allah’s compassion for Nigeria and the North in particular.

“Muslims are as well urged to be introspective and should embrace more Dhikr (remembrance of Allah), through glorification of Allah, Istighfar (seeking Allah’s forgiveness) and ceaseless Du’a (prayers and invocations), for ease and relief in these trying moments.

“The Muslim Ummah is also called upon to intensify ‘Adhkar’ (calling on Allah with the tongue), especially the prescribed morning and evening ones. The Muslims should eschew all forms of disobedience to Allah (SWT), repent and go back to the ways of the Lord of the universe,” the statement added.
