PM calls to fear God in Tanzania
He, however, called on religious institutions to refrain from using places of worship as political platforms and to continue to work closely with the government to train respectful, loving and peaceful people in the country.
Majaliwa made this appeal during the launch of the Jamiu Assaliheen Mosque built by the Istiqaama community in the Ikwiriri neighborhood, Rufiji district, in the coastal region. The mosque has a capacity of 500 people and also has four madrasa halls for religious education.
He said the government will continue to work with all religious institutions to ensure that the various social and spiritual projects that benefit Tanzanians are well implemented.
“We are all witnesses here to the great contribution made by religious institutions in our society. Religious institutions in the country have been actively involved in providing social services, especially education, water, health, as well as helping people in need such as orphans and widows, as well as in providing spiritual services, ”he said.
He congratulated the community of Istaaqama for the excellent work they are doing in the country, especially in strengthening the unity between Muslims and believers of other religions.
“I would also like to congratulate you on your hard work in building a good spiritual and moral foundation for our young people who are our future leaders. It is clear that no nation in the world can succeed without having solid spiritual and moral foundations, ”he said.
Sheikh Badar bin Sood, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Istiqaama Community, congratulated President Samia Suluhu Hassan for the excellent work she has done to promote unity, peace, solidarity and development in all aspects and for all Tanzanians.
Tanzanian leader Mufti Sheikh Abubakar Zubeir reminded Muslims and Tanzanians in general to get vaccinated against Covid-19 in order to improve their body’s immune system.
