Kaduna zone of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria under His Eminence Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) has over the weekend visited tombs of martyrs of the Islamic Movement from the zone, as a mark of honour.
The rally took off from Layin Kosai mosque in the heart of Tudunwda Kaduna in the morning with songs of praise for the martyrs.
At the graveyard, Coordinator of the Mu’assasatu al-Shuhahda (Martyrs’ Foundation), Malan Abdulhamid explained the virtue of martyrdom and its rationality in raising high the status and flag of Islam.
Malam Abdulhameed Bello cited instance of the Quds Day killings in Zaria, which he said has raised the status of Islam since then, adding that it signaled the victory of Islam and has cleared some misconceptions about the Islamic Movement.
He also said, the crime carried out by the Nigerian security operatives was part of an old-aged plan to crush the Islamic Movement without success.
While enumerating activities of the Foundation, Malam Abdulhamid Bello charged members to pay their martyrs, which he said would greatly assist in the upkeep of families of the martyrs.
Also in his speech, Malan Mukhtar Sahabi, the first on his return from studies abroad, urged members to hold firm unto their allegiance towards Sheikh
Zakzaky, saying martyr is never a coincidence but Allah’s merciful choice.
He also called on members to intensify worship and avoid sinful acts to earn Allah’s mercy.
Malan Mukhtar Sahabi reiterated the need for continuous payment of Martyrs’ due as a religious obligation.
Supplications were recited by Malan Auwal Tudunwada before all the three sections of the martrys’ tombs.
