Muslim women in Soche Hill Blantyre have been urged to avoid participating in Christian fellowship prayers as the tendency is wrecking Muslim families.
The call was made by Muslim women from Mbayani Township during a day-long dawah get-together meeting held at Mibawa Masjid in Soche Hill.
Speaking to Muslims Official Website, Mbayani Masjid’s Muallim who led the delegation Sheikh Mussa Abdullah explained that the dawah get-together was aimed at encouraging the Muslim women to acquire proper Islamic education that will in turn strengthen imaan in their families. “A Muslim woman who is steadfast in faith is a strong pillar in a family where even the children can never go astray,” he added.
Sheikh Abdul Aziz Simati who hosted the Mbayani Muslim faithfulls appealed to the women to flock to madressah in large numbers in order to understand their deen “and never be pre-occupied with gossip and rumour-mongering,” which he said is a hunting ground for fellowship groups.
There have been reports in various localities that Muslim women are coerced by their non-Muslim neighbours to join Christian fellowship prayers ‘to pray to Jesus Christ in order to witness miracles’ that will solve their problems overnight, a development that is against Islamic Tauheed (monotheism) and is also causing friction in families whenever the husbands discover that their wives are involved in such malpractices.
