Dr. Zakir Naik Calls for Unity in Islam Urges Gambians to Respect Decisions of Gsic
The founder and president of the Islamic Research Foundation (IRF), Dr. Zakir Naik has called for unity among Muslims, while urging Gambians to follow and respect the decisions taken by the Gambia Supreme Islamic Council (GSIC) in relation to religious matters.
The renowned international orator on Islam and Comparative Religion was speaking on Saturday night at the premises of the Law Faculty and the School of Journalism and Digital Media of the University of The Gambia's Kanifing Campus during the fourth chancellor's lecture on the theme, 'Terrorism & Jihad: An Islamic Perspective,' as part of a series of lectures to be conducted by him in the country, as a special guest of the Gambian leader, on the occasion of the 20th July 22nd celebrations.
The multiple awards and accolade-winning Indian scholar said every Muslim should desist from activities that will bring disunity among the faith. He added that, "there is no but, if or else in Islam. Once you have declared yourself a Muslim then you have to abide by the commands of Allah and the teachings of the Prophet (PBUH), especially when the commands are very clear and unambiguous."
Citing of the moon
Speaking on the controversy surrounding the citing of the moon for Ramadan and Eid purposes, the trained medical doctor said "it is not a problem in The Gambia alone, but rather the world throughout." He then cited India as an example where they sometimes observe the Eid prayers in three consecutive days. "Some people [a minority group] came to me in Bombay [India, in the past] to ask if they can observe the Eid with Saudi Arabia, but I advised them not to, just for the sake of maintaining unity among Muslims."
He added further that there are two ways in citing the moon, which he noted, is "local and global-citing." He disclosed that in one of his discussions with President Jammeh, the Gambian leader had asked him on this particular issue, and to him, Babili Mansa's clarity on the issue had convinced him that the president is a good Muslim. He then hailed President Jammeh for deploying both the local and global citing of the moon whereas the country will fast or pray should the moon be cited in the country or by Saudi Arabia.
Speaking further, he implored on Gambians to always follow and respect the decisions taken by its leaders, adding that whatever decisions taken by our leaders becomes compulsory, while extoling the majority of Gambians for adhering to those calls. "[In Islam], when your leader takes a decision, that becomes compulsory, so you must follow and respect the decisions taken by the Gambia Supreme Islamic Council and the president of the country," he concluded.
