Nur-Dass emphasized that life in the world is temporary hence the need for people to control their hearts not to involve in evil acts or  corruption wherever they found  themselves adding  that  and any evil committed ,  they must account it before God.

Also speaking, Sheik Sale Sani-Zaria, called on Muslims faithful to join Christians in celebrating Christmas toward ensuring peace, unity and progress in the country, adding that Christmas day is for celebrating the birth day of prophet Isa ‘Jesus’ hence the need for Muslims  to celebrate together to show love to one another as was done by Prophet Muhammad.

“We are calling on the Muslims  to emulate Prophet Muhammad who accommodate the Christian clergy and permit them to perform their religious duty within his Mosque.

“And saying congratulations to the followers of Christianity is not prohibited in Islam according to our understanding.

“Given them gift or accepting their gift and being happy with them all are acceptable in Islam”, he said.

According to him, even in simplifying leaving conditions in the society for bringing more peace among the people is most welcome.

“Islam is very simple and straight forward as whatever you do, you must account for it in the Day of Judgment, “You have nothing to fear if you emulate the practice of Prophet Muhammad,” he said.
