Why I celebrates Maulud with Muslims – Pastor

Must read

General Overseer of Christ Evangelical and Life Intervention Ministry, Kaduna, Pastor Yohana Buru, has explained why he celebrates Maulud with Muslims in the state.

According to him, there are Muslims that always join him at his church in December to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Buru made the explanation at a Maulud trekking organised by Kaduna-based Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Abdullahi Mai Barota, in Tudun Wada community to mark the birth of the Holy Prophet.

He said every year, he attends over 25 to 30 different Maulud celebrations across Nigeria and neighbouring African countries.

“We are Christians and our Bible encourage us to be our brothers keepers. I decided to join my Muslims brothers every year to celebrate the birth of the prophet of Islam ,peace be upon him despite being a Christian because prophet Muhammad is most loved by Muslims world wide.

“Another reason is because Muslims also join me every year to celebrate birth of Christ on Christmas day in my church,” he said.

Buru said celebrating Maulud goes beyond Muslims alone simply because the Prophet is for everyone irrespective of tribe, religion, cultural and historical difference.

According to the organiser of the Maulud trek, Sheikh Salihu Abdullahi Mai Barota, Christians were invited to join them in order to promote tolerance.

He said the aim is to strengthen peaceful coexistence and religious tolerance among the adherents of the two religions.
