43

An Islamic cleric and Associate Professor Muhammad Sani Umar Rijiyar Lemo has lamented that so long as leaders and their followers see nothing wrong in lack of trust and honesty made in the society encourages moral decadence and in the society.

Lemon made the lamentation at the 9th session of the 2024 Ramadan Tafsir on Wednesday in Bauchi,

He said such trust and promises are covenants made between human beings and their Creator regarding the dos and don’t of life and that when humans break such covenants, the wreath of Allah (SWA) will always befall such society.

“The 9th day session from Verse 10 of Surah Al Mu’minun of the Glorious Quran that talks about trust, honesty and promises, said that, aside from making covenant with Allah,

“There is that trust, promises, agreement etc between two or more people and that very rare one sees such trust, agreement and promises being kept secret by both parties.

According to him, Allah (SWA) frowns at those people who break trusts and promises they made among themselves.

“These days whomever you entrust with either leadership position, money, property, office appointment, secret etc, the prospect of keeping such trusts is very slim”.

“Everything that is pious and righteous, like the Prophets and Angels of God are associated with being trustworthy, keep promises and exhibit honesty”.

“So long as people are going to remain untrustworthy, dishonest and not honoring promises they made, then such society will not know peace.

“Such society will be afflicted with societal ills like fornications, homosexualities, drug addiction, lesbianism, banditry, kidnapping etc”, said Prof Lemo

Lemo who took the best of 35 minutes emphasizing on the need for society to change for the better, also quoted relevant sections of the Qur’an, Hadiths and Narratives of other scholars to buttress his point.
