Members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Organization (Majlis Khuddamul-Ahmadiyya, Oyo State) have fed 150 inmates of Nigerian Correctional Service, Agodi, Ibadan, Oyo State during the Eid-ul-Fitr celebration on 12th May, 2021.
The humanitarian gesture is not the first of its kind between the Muslim youth organization and the correctional service center. The organization had in the past organized similar laudable events.
Although this year’s event took the shape of a remarkable feast organized in the spirit of celebrating the importance of the just concluded spiritual fast, other visits had been monthly.
While giving his vote of thanks, the Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Qasim Mustapha, who had received gifts on behalf of the Commission said: ‘We sincerely appreciate your timely gestures. God will reward you abundantly. We need good groups like this to always donate generously.’
Likewise, Mr. Hussein Muftau, Oyo State Qaid stated in his address that service to humanity is an integral part of the Islamic faith.
His words: “Our motto is ‘nations cannot be reformed without the reformation of the youths’ and this is why after service of the Almighty God, the next obligation is to fulfill the rights of His creation as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim sect who also doubles as the Promised Messiah.’
