Over 50,000 people attended the programme at the Siaka Stevens stadium to listen to the wonderful speaker Mufti Ismail Menk today on Friday 22nd 2017 It was a moment of wonders and happiness to witness the grand Mufti we’ve all been waiting for at the national stadium in broad day light. Another exciting aspect is seeing the beauty of Asr prayer the people prayer not forgetting their purpose! The lecture was a full 48 minutes talk and was mainly focussed on peace, unity and love. Mufti Ismail Menk also expressed his solidarity and prayed for the victims of the Mudslide and flood last month August in our nation. He also advised and urged everyone to be united upon truth. He expressed the beauty he saw today among Sierra Leoneans and indeed it was a manifestation of the love of our religion. He also humbly told the crowd he is just like anyone of them and he is not superior to anyone as he is just like them. He also urged everyone to be kind and show the beauty of Islam to people who do not share our faith. Mufti Menk gave an example of a man who helped a thirsty dog drink as an example to show kindness and love even if they are non Muslims as this will help them understand the true values of Islam. Lastly he mentioned these words at the end of his sermon. “There’s hope in Sierra Leone!” “Worship Allah alone and let put our worries to Him as He is the one that will solve it.” “When we express excitement and happiness we should know where to focus it and we should focus it to the Almighty Allah” The Sheikh prayed for Sierra Leone, Muslims and the rest of humanity and the lecture ended.
