By Ahmad Sa’eed
Volunteer guards (Hurras), an arm of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria under His Eminence Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, charged with the responsibility of orderliness, community projects and other security issues, have conducted a day seminar in Potiskum recently, where issues were emerging addressed.

 The seminar which took place at the Conference Hall of Fudiyyah School, drew many participants and stakeholders.

Ameer of Potiskum, Malam Mustapha Lawan Nasidi while closing the seminar charged Hurras to focus more on orderliness, and also demonstrate his level of orderliness to correspond with their duty for others to follow.

He cited the saying of Imam Ali while stating his will, “I urge you to fear Allah and observe orderliness in your affairs”, advised Hurras to ensure periodic and comprehensive review of their activities through workshops every three months.

Malam Nasidi cautioned them against engaging and promoting issues that will bring misunderstanding and disagreement in the Movement. “Misconduct and related issues must be avoided. Be grateful by being in the Movement at a time when Islam needs the service of people like you. This is a great opportunity and privilege”.

Earlier, Mallam Ibrahim Mu’utallim, a volunteer guard spoke on the role of a Haris under the Islamic Movement, where traced the history of word “Haris” to Imam Ali (AS) for his steadfastness in protecting and defence the Holy Prophet (SAWA), as well as maintaining orderliness.

While enumerating duties of a Haris to include seeking knowledge, he also described him as a person with exemplary conduct while dealing with people.

Ibrahim Mu’utallima charged Hurras to have full grasp of their assigned duties, so as not trespass into other people’s duites.

Another speaker, Mallam Ibrahim Lawan (Tahfiz) called on Hurras to be conversant with all the arms of the Islamic Movement, their duties and those at the helm of affairs. “That will give the Haris full insight what his role will be in any situation. He should also built a strong tie between them, so as to complement each other’s role for overall success”.

At the end of the occasion, some participants were presented with awards for outstanding performance in their duties.

Special prayer was also said for full protection of Leader of the Islamic Movement, His Eminence Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.
