A founding member of The Muslim Congress (TMC), Ustadz Yahya AbdurRahman, has narrated the early dawah struggle of the founding leaders of the organisation towards propagation of precinct Islam right from their days in the university as students.
AbdurRahman gave the narratives when he featured on the Personality Profile programme of the Information Unit at the just concluded 25th National Islamic Training Programme (NITP).
The NITP is an annual camping programme, organised by TMC at Vanguard Academy, Odosengolu in Ogun State.
He narrated how, while at the university as students, members spread their efforts to various secondary schools to re-awaken the activities of the Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN) in Lagos, Ogun and other neighbouring states.
“When you read books as youths, you will be motivated. We were able to use our times judiciously because we had no time for frivolities.
“What really matters to us is how MSSN will grow, all dead branches, we revived them.
“All teachings of Islam that were forgotten, we revived them and we started to introduce Islamic books to students to read,” AbdurRahman, who is also a Medical Laboratory Scientist, said.
