Earlier in his opening speech, the Nasfat President, Mr. Niyi Yusuf went down on memory lane on the historical background of the society, Nasfat that was formed in 1995 as a prayer group and also a platform for members to interact with Missioners on understanding and uplifting their faith in line with Mission and Vision of the Society.
“The mission of Nasfat is to develop an enlightened Muslim society, nurtured by true understanding of Islam for spiritual upliftment and welfare of Mankind. And to this end the focus has been on enlightening and developing the larger society based on the DEEN and knowledge of Islam. Not only on spiritual upliftment but also on the well being of Mankind.”
In actualising this Mission, the Society has established eight independent agencies namely TAFSAN Investment Limited (TIN), TAFSAN Travels & Tours, Nasfat Agency for Zakat & Sadaqah (NAZAS), Nasfat Relief Initiative (NRI), HAVEK Leadership Academy, Fountain University (FUO), Lasilkiin Communications Limited (KIIN MEDIA) and Nasfat Legal Aid Council (NASLAC).
“Through these agencies the society has been able to do a lot for humanity irrespective of race or colour, faith, tribe, status.” said Mr. Yusuf.
In the last four years the Society has focused on four things under a policy tagged HELD, that’s Health, Education, Livelihood and Dawah through various programmes put together by the aforementioned agencies.
“Nasfat is a faith-based, pace-setting society that’s dynamic, that’s breaking barriers and that’s doing new things. I pray that Allah SWT accept all the efforts Nasfat is making as acts of Ibadah.”
In his lecture topic titled “Search for religious harmony, peace and development: the role of Islamic societies,” at the occasion, the resident Imam, University of Lagos Mosque, Dr. Mustapha Ibrahim analysed it was essential to note that any nation or community is definitely based on a delicate network of human relationships which automatically becomes disorganised or chaotic under the slightest provocation.
Hence, he advised Muslims not to join forces in destroying what’s good on earth rather they should always be mindful of the fact that, “Muslims are the best if Mankind, so they should as a matter of MUST enjoin what is good and forbid what is bad as the religion we practice, Al-Islam teaches us .”
