Grand Mufti of Conference of Islamic Organizations, Shaykh Dhikirullah Shaffi has said Islam totally frowns at dating, which is popularly called as boyfriending and girlfriending, among the young muslims.
The Mufti said this when he visited Muslim Children Camping Programme (MCCP) of Oyo/Ogbomosho The Young Muslims Association (TYMa) at Salamat Olaniyan School, Saw-mill, Oyo on December 31st 2019.
Shaykh Shaffi who expressed his happiness as the Muslim children attended the camp in large number, advised them to stick to teachings they have learnt in the camp so far, saying that his own generation lacked such an opportunity.
”You are very fortunate to have such a programme where you are being taught not only about life but also about the Hereafter. I implore you to make your stay here worthwhile by impressing your parents and the world as a whole after the camp.” He said.
Speaking later, his renowned contemporary, Ustadh Qomarudeen Ballo thanked Shaykh Shaffi for visiting the children in the camp despite his tight schedule. He thereafter prayed for the children, their parents and all Muslims.Also at the programme were Ustadh Jibreel Hamzah, Ustadh Abdulmojeed Abodunrin, the Oyo coordinator of the association, Ustadh Kazeem Sanusi and others.
