- A Muslim cleric in Lagos, Imam Mahroof Onike, has urged other faithfuls to assist in building mosques
- Onike said that such acts will help them gain favour from Allah

Imam Mahroof Onike, the chief missioner of Nasrul-Lahi-L-Fatih Society (NASFAT), has urged Muslims to seek Allah’s favour and mercy by assisting in building mosques, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
Onike made the plea in a statement issued by NASFAT’s publicity secretary, Banji Busari on Monday, September 17, in Lagos.
The chief missioner spoke at a mega Asalatu prayer organised by NASFAT in furtherance of the fund raising effort for the completion of the N2.5 billion NASFAT Aseese Mosque, Agege, Lagos.
Onike said that Muslims, who strived and spent their resources for Allah’s cause would earn their reward here and the hereafter.
“It is most rewarding for Muslims to spend their legally-acquired wealth on the cause of Allah and building of mosques is integral in this regard.
“Muslims who imbibe this important act of charity will be blessed abundantly on earth and the hereafter,’’ the chief missioner said.
NAN reports that the fundraiser was attended by over 50 branches of NASFAT throughout the state.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com reported that upon seeing victims fleeing from suspected herdsmen who attacked Nghar Yelwa, a village in Plateau state on Sunday, June 24, an unnamed Imam opened the door of a mosque and hid them.
Amounting to about 262, the persons were running for safety from a neighbouring village in the Barkin Ladi local government area, which was being attacked by gunmen.
