The Apostle of Allah (SAWA) Appointed Imam Ali (As) as Successor; Mal Kasimu Umar
Mallam Kasimu Umar Rimin Tawaye Sokoto described Islam as the Religion that teaches its followers the complete way of life which prophet Muhammad( SAW) has successfully delivered it to mankind as the commandment of Almighty Allah (SWT).
Speaking at the lecture organized by Sisters Forum of Islamic Movement in Suleja, to mark the end of Rabiul Awwal and Milad anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) at the Goodwill Co-operative Hall at Tsohon Kwata Quarters, Suleja on Sunday 9-FEB-2014, Mallam Kasim said those who believed that the Prophet had taught everything except the appointment of his Successor (Calipha) and Guardian of Muslims Society have to think twice.
He said the issues of Chalipha in Islam started since at the early period of his prophethood, when the Prophet invited his clan of Banu Hashim and solicited their support and assistant of any of them to disseminate the message of Islam and also to be his successor after his demise but none accepted except Imam Ali (AS) who was the youngest among them. He stood up and answered the Prophet thee times but was directed to sit down by the Prophet (SAWA) . Those presence during the event included Sayyid Hamza, Abu lahabi, Abbas and so,on. Since then Imam Ali (AS) remained the successor and Guardian of Muslims Ummah.
Mallam Kasim added that it was unbecoming for the prophet Muhammad (SAWA), who explained every matter to the Ummah - business transaction, marital affairs, daily activities and economy, to omit the appointment of his Caliphate which is the most important issue for the Muslim Ummah
He also advised the Muslim sisters to emulate the teaching of Sayyida Fatima Zahra (SA)who only spent twenty years (20) but contributed immensely to the development and propagation of Islam, urging them to be careful on the good orientation of their children in this exploitative society.
Earlier at occasion the chairperson of Sisters Forum Malama Hafsat salisutold our correspondent that the purpose of this gathering was to comply with the directive of our Leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky that we should propagate the Islamic message like our counterpart men, and call on other Muslims Sisters to be attending any program of Islamic Movement any where in the country.
