Wrong teachings can lead to destruction, says Najib
tance of Muslims to unite to uphold Islam and ensure the future of the ummah (faithful).
He said unity was the foundation for all dreams and noble aspirations as the agenda to uphold Islam could no longer be borne by the government alone.
“If we are faced with enemies who are united and have a strategy, but we isolate each other, ignore each other and do not seek ways to unite, we will be defeated by them,” he said.
“A large number of Malaysians are Muslims and the government cannot meet the Islamic agenda unless the non-governmental organisations as partners of the government fight for the sake of Allah. So unity is the most effective weapon to attain our aspirations,” he added.
He also stressed the need for ulama and umara to continue their efforts with honesty and lead with fairness and trustworthiness to uphold Is- lam and for the good of the people.
“According to the Prophet’s hadiths, if these two groups of people (ulama and umara) are good, then all will be good, but if they are not, then everything will be destroyed,” he said.
Najib performed Maghrib prayers with the congregation before breaking fast with 1,500 guests, including the hard-core poor and orphans.
Later, he performed Isyak and Tarawih prayers.
He presented donations amounting to RM803,250 to 319 students of religious schools.
Najib also presented zakat (tithe) donations to 90 orphans from Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim/Miskin, Klang; Rumah Tunas Harapan Tengku Ampuan Rahimah, Kuala Selangor; and Pusat Jagaan Anak-anak Yatim/Miskin Rukaiyah, Kajang.
