Muslim Woman Donates 50 Hausa Bibles To A Church In Kaduna State

31 Jan

A Muslim woman in Kaduna on Sunday
donated 50 Bibles written in Hausa
language to a church leader and his
members.
This she says was done to strenghten
religious tolerance and mutual
understanding as the world marks
International Interfaith Harmony Week by
the United Nations.
Hajiya Ramatu Tijjani who arrived the
Christ Evangelical Intercessory Fellowship
Ministry Sabon-Tasha, Kaduna at 9:30am
with her son, Abdullahakim, to attend
Sunday church service with
Christians, explained that there is the
need to start the World Interfaith
Harmony Week holding between 1 and 7
February by donating important gift such
as Bibles to Christians.
She also said the importance of sharing
Bibles to Christians is to boost mutual
understanding and inter-religious dialogue
as well as spread the culture of peace and
harmony in a way to immensely promote
harmony between all people regardless of
their faith and belief.
According to her, the Interfaith Harmony
Week was established to celebrate the
principles of tolerance and respect for
others that are deeply rooted in the
world’s major religions, adding,
“that is why United Nations declared and
dedicated the first week of this month to
promote all activities that encourage and
enhance religious activities and tolerance.
“Christians are my brothers and sisters
and as a Muslim I love visiting them,
because both religions preach peace and
tolerance. Attending the church service
doesn’t make me become a Christian. As
a Muslim I have several Bibles at home
and I read them.
We all are from Adam and Eve and
because both Muslims and Christians
have their books and scriptures that guide
them, we should rely on the scriptures.”
Hajiya Tijjani, who pointed out that the
impact of the previous ethno-religious
and political crises in the state that
claimed hundreds of lives and properties
was a serious setback to peaceful co-
existence in Kaduna, urged clerics from
both religions to preach sermons that
foster unity and peaceful co-existence.
Receiving the Bibles, the General
Overseer of Christ Evangelical
Intercessory Fellowship Ministry, Pastor
Yohanna Buru, thanked Hajiya Tijjani for
the gesture and urged other Nigerians to
learn how to tolerate, accommodate and
live in peace with one another
irrespective of religious background.
