Anyone who builds a mosque for prayers has established a road to the Paradise – Sultan

The Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji Abubakar Sa'ad
The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, has said that building a mosque is so important that whoever does so has established a road to paradise.
The Sultan thus urged Muslims to continue to contribute their quota towards the development of Islam.
Sultan stated this on Friday at the official commissioning of Dr Sulaiman Muhammad Juma’at Mosque in Argungu, Argungu Local Government Area of Kebbi.
This, he said, would facilitate unity, peace and progress among the Muslim Ummah and the country at large.
Abubakar said Islamic religion was known as a peaceful religion, advising that Clerics, should therefore, continue to preach and propagate peace and unity in their respective communities and in the entire nation.
He observed that no support was too small and non was too big to Islam, advising that the best support was the one done for the sake of Allah (SWT) towards earning reward from God Almighty in the hereafter.
“Anyone who builds Mosque for prayers has established a road to the Paradise; I encourage everyone of us to emulate this gigantic gesture,” he urged.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Mosque was constructed by the National Organising Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Suleiman Argungu for Muslims to perform both daily and Juma’at prayers.
The occasion was also used for crowning of the first Chief Imam, Malam Nasiru Sani, Assistant Chief Imam, Sheik Hussani Abubakar-Giro, the son of late Islamic preacher, Sheik Giro Argungu as well as the third Imam, Malam Adamu Nuhu-Argungu.
The commissioning was attended by Gov. Nasir Idris of Kebbi, APC National Chairman and former Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Umar-Ganduje and other national party officials among other dignitaries.
