Unedited post of Islamic Cleric :
JOS CRISIS, SHEIK KABIR GOMBE WROTE;
” I call on Christians and Muslims in Nigeria not to allow animosity, hatred and division between them. A Christian is the closest in faith to a Muslim according to the Quran.
” Christians and Muslims are supposed to be In laws as the Quran in Suratul Maida allows inter marriage. Quran permits us to eat food cooked by Christians.
” Prophet Muhamad ( SAW) once hosted Christians in his mosque and when it was time for them to pray, they asked him where they can pray and he told them to pray in the mosque.
” As a Muslim, I went to the Vatican in Rome, I entered the Vatican. The biggest mosque in Europe is in Rome the Headquarters of Christians, there’s a train terminal as well as bus park that brings Muslims to the Mosque. Most times, they invite Christian leaders to their activities in the Mosque.
” There’s a verse in the Bible, ” blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God’, there’s a similar verse in the Quran, so I call on us not to fight ourselves across religious or tribal lines for if we do, we will regret it. May God give us peace in Nigeria.
