A Bauchi based Islamic cleric, Ustadz Muazu Idris Guyaba has called on kidnappers and other criminals to repent and embrace decency to earn God’s favours and forgiveness.
The cleric made the call on Saturday at Mararaban Liman Katagum Bauchi during a one-day religious program organized by the youth wing of Izala group Bauchi State Chapter.
Guyaba maintained that kidnappers and other sinners can immediately quit their acts and embrace steps of repentance to gain divine forgiveness.
“For one in the dark forest of the jungle who abducted humans, can immediately set them free right there in the forests and enjoy the blessings of the divine forgiveness. Because the condition for God accepting ones’ repentance is to repent at the spot and willingly”, he said.
He added that when evildoers genuinely repent from their sins they will be blessed by God and Nigeria will become prosperous and restore its diminishing glory.
Speaking earlier, Attahiru Bakoji who extensively talked about human rights urged people to be brothers keepers and to be fair among themselves as enshrined in the scriptures.
He noted that even non-mankind creatures such as animals deserve to be treated fairly with sympathy and consideration, talk more of a human being who is supposed to gain his utmost right more than anything else.
In his remark, the leader of the Youth group and also the Executive Secretary Bauchi State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, Abdulrahman Ibrahim Idris, urged all criminals to seek divine forgiveness, adding that by so doing they will become good citizens and be absorbed by communities.
The Mararaba weekend program is one of the series of routine programs planned by the religious Youth group across the state to enlighten the general public on the good manners of human life.
