The Nigerian Lawyer and human rights activist Reno Omokri in his recent post maintained that Christians should compulsorily study Islamic Religious Knowledge and Muslims should do the same with Christian Religious Knowledge.
A few hours ago, Reno posted a photo of Peter Obi’s campaign mats on his social media handle. These mats by the way of looking are fully customized carrying the image of the Mosque and the campaign poster of Peter Obi who is aspiring to be Nigerian president in the forthcoming election.
According to Reno, These mats are intentionally designed for Muslim people to be using for their respective prayers which is wrong. According to the Quran, Islam does not tolerate images of humans in Mosques or on prayer mats.
This is why I have maintained that Christians should compulsorily study Islamic Religious Knowledge and Muslims should do same with the Christian Religious Knowledge. I’ve read the Quran and know that this is wrong. Islam does not tolerate images of humans in in Mosques or on prayer mats ( you can tell by the image of the Mosques on the mat). They are intended for use in prayer.
It is seen as idolatry. The Hadiths condemn it. Tinubu trued it in Mecca and the Saudis depicting Allah (SWT), or of prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam ) are not allowed. How much more an image of a politician. This is sad.
And you cannot even counsel these people. They feel they know more than those counselling them. You talk one, they talk one hundred. Anyway, we are watching.Rena Omokri
