Islamic Group Invites Celestial Church Prophet, Oladele Genesis, To Their "Lailatul Quadri"

It was a shocker to a section of Islamic religion adherents, when the Invitation Card (IV) of a certain Islamic Group named "Ahbaab Li-Islam Society of Nigeria" in conjuction with another Islamic Group, "Markazu Ahbaab Uloomudeen" to their Lailatul Quadri emerged online, and picture of the Senior Sheperd-in-Charge of Celestial Church of Christ Genesis Global, Prophet Israel Oladele Ogundipe simply referred to as Genesis, is seen on it.

According to the information on the IV, Genesis is being invited as a Special Guest of Honour to the "Night of Majesty", as Lailatul Quadri is also called, of the Islamic Group which would be taking place on Friday, 7th May, 2021, at Awobona Street, Off Alkat Way, Iju Ishaga, Lagos State. And many have been wondering what could inform the invitation of a Christian Prophet to an occasion where fervent Islamic supplications only, are expected to be offered.

And for those who may not understand what Lailatul Quadri is all about in Islam, there is a need to shed more light on it. According to findings, during a Ramadan period, there is a night they call "Night of Majesty" that every prayer offered by Muslims will be answered automatically, according to believe. And this particular night is said to be within the last 10 days of each Ramadan period every year. Especially, the nights that fall on odd numbers like 21, 23, 25, 27 or 29th day of Ramadan.

Therefore, Islamic Groups and different Mosques are in the habit of choosing any day they like within the last 10 days of Ramadan to organise their respective Lailatul Quadri gatherings and pray profusely to Almighty Allah, and seek for every blessing they want from Him. And in such a night, there is usually no time for frivolities as every attendee is expected to commune directly with God over their life issues, and pray for solutions with high guarantee of the prayers being answered.

Hence, that is the reason some sections of the Muslim faithfuls are wondering what role exactly is a Christian Prophet expected to come and play at such gathering that warranted the invitation of Genesis by the Islamic Group. Meanwhile, the name of the founder of the Islamic Group who is accordingly, the host of the Lailatul Quadri, is Fadheelatul Ustaz Alhaji Habeebulah Abdul-Ganiy Arikeuyo M. Raji, and he may have an answer for that poser.

However, what is certain is that, the forthcoming Lailatul Quadri by the group would generate some controversies when it is held, and it is confirmed that Genesis actually attends it. And since the dress code is said to be all white, it would not be a surprise if Genesis attends in his white garment.

For now, people can only keep their fingers crossed.
