MMM: Nigerians Blast Cleric, Muhammad Gusauin Who Said Scheme Is Against Islam


Nigerians, particularly MMM supporters and subscribers have blasted an Islamic cleric, Murtadha Muhammad Gusauin, who said participating in the ponzi scheme was against the tenet of Islam.
The Imam had delivered a lecture at the central mosque in Okene, Kogi State which was shared on Facebook and other social media platforms.
He said the idea of providing help to people on the basis of return was not supported by Islam as reward for alms giving would be in the hereafter.
Gusauin had said, “The example of those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allah is like that of a grain of corn that sprouts seven ears, and in every ear there are a hundred grains. Thus Allah multiplies the action of whomsoever He wills.
“Allah is Munificent, All-Knowing. Those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allah and do not follow up their spending by stressing their benevolence and causing hurt, will find their reward secure with their Lord. They have no cause for fear and grief.” (Al Baqarah, :261-262).
“Islam also teaches us to give something to other without wishing for greater return. Allah reminded us:
“Do not give something to seek for a better return.” (Tafsir al Qurtubi, 19/67).
“It all shows that the MMM transaction is not in line with some principles of Islam, thus it shouldn’t be preserved,” he stated.
His lecture, however, generated reaction from Nigerians as some persons noted that the scheme was a form of business and others giving in to the opinion of the religious cleric.
Read some of the reactions on Facebook below:
Haruna Idris: “It’s a pity that so many people in Nigeria don’t knw where to eat from instead, they choose to eat from every trains of hell. U re consuming interest from unknown Source”
Michael Korede Olorunyomi: “Nigerians tend to play religious cards at every opportunity. Is corruption biblical/islamic?’cos most of this so called clergy men/religious Nigerians have never come out in the open to condemn corruption in strong terms.
“1.most of this pastors/imams are the ones praying for the politicians.
“2.some pay their tithes from the proceeds of corruption.3.some of them you see them taking selfies with these politicians.
“So the clergy men, should focus more on the generation that led Nigeria to where it is today.”
Sunnie Chimaroke wrote: “MMM is not Islamic. It is when IBB, Abacha, Abdusallami, Kwankwaso, Buhari, and all the rest of them, pack Nigeria’s money to their personal accounts in Europe and America…that is really Islamic?
“When unqualified alamajiris occupy sensitive positions due to quota system …that is Islamic? Or is it #HellRufai pays huge money to his trained killers to be killing people …that is Islamic? Sunni Muslims are synonymous with lies and hypocrisy. …#Islamic my foot!”
Daniel John Aduojo Apeh said, ” “This is not giving out money but investing your money to your %. Business is quit different from religion.”
Onoja Patrick “Please, all religions should come all out and condemn corruption in the spirit.”
