Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH, Muslim Nurses Forum has held her third annual Ramadan lecture entitled â€œProgress of Islam in LASUTH.â€ It was held inside the LASUTH Central Mosque, Ikeja, Lagos State, Nigeria.
Speaking at the lecture, Mrs. Ola Aroyewun, chairperson, Ramadan Committee of LASUTH Muslim Nurses Forum sues the attitude of the Muslim Nurses towards Islam adding that money cannot practice religion for them.
She reminded the muslim nurses that the month of blessing, Ramadan is going to an end and requires Muslims to work hard to earn the pleasure of God.
She said, â€œRamadan is going to an end and it comes only once in a year and I urge Muslims to use the opportunity to cleanse themselves of their sins.â€
Mrs. Aroyewun said that Muslims should not pray only when they are in need and abandon prayers after God has answered their prayers.
â€œMajority of us just raise our hands to the sky only when we need something from God. So one of us even pray without having the believe that God will answer the prayer.
â€œYou have to inculcate the habit of praying, believing and steadfastness. We should stop believing that with money and not participating in Islamic activities the religion will grow to an enviable status in LASUTH,â€ she said.
She said that Prophet Muhammed was the best example to humanity who she said lived with so many challenges and stood by the challenges without giving up his faith.
