One of the misconstrued term in Islam is ‘Jihad’.
Terrorist groups like ISIS, Alqaeda and Boko Haram have fuelled the misuse with their ideology to the extent that any slight reprisal from a Muslim when abused is regarded as jihad.
Jihad in our society also come with the notion that ‘Muslims kill for 70 virgins’.
Nasrul-llahi-Fathi Society, NASFAT Enugu Branch Chairman, Jimoh Oluwatosin has said “there is no such thing as killing oneself for virgins.”
Jimoh added that NASFAT Enugu Branch is planning a Ramadan public lecture that will address the misconception that has spread like wildfire in the eastern part of the country.
The Ramadan lecture tagged “Misunderstanding About Jihad” is scheduled to hold on Saturday June 17, 2017 at Islamic Centre, Uwani, Enugu State.
Guest Speaker is the Chief Imam of University of Calabar, Sheikh Abdulqadir Ibrahim Bature.
