I feel extremely honoured to have been considered for this precious moment by Almighty Allah and the wonderful family and friends that he has blessed me with.
Without exaggeration, I would not have felt this massive love and support without you people. You have placed our mutual interest above your convenience to be here today in my honour. I am sincerely grateful for this massive show of love and solidarity. God bless you all.
Today is remarkable indeed. I am 62 years old. I think I am gradually advancing towards that age of God grace. I must confess, I actually don’t feel 62. I think I feel 30. I obviously may not look 30 but I am sure I have found myself in the hearts and minds of many young people today who are in their 30s. That alone is my greatest strength and joy.
Itori would again today witness another addition as the World Assembly of Muslim Youth has graciously donated a finished Mosque of the standard of what we have in Saudi Arabia to the Itori Community and this has been Commissioned to mankind for the service of Almighty Allah.
World Assembly of Muslim Youth is a foundation which promotes the beauty in the service of Allah and the restoration of hope to the needy.
The donation of this beautiful Mosque to our dear community to celebrate my 62nd birthday is a special occasion to me as I would re-dedicate my life and existence to the service of Almighty Allah.
This is actually a wake-up call to me to reaffirm my commitment to the service of Allah and mankind.
Let me specially thank the World Assembly of Muslim Youth for this special consideration and donation to our community. It will further strengthen the faith and commitment of our people to the service of Almighty Allah. World Assembly of Muslim Youth has successfully reintroduce this community to the service of Allah as this Mosque would remain a monument for Allah.
Once again, thank you all for the show of love support. May we all live long to the advance age in life. Thank you and God bless.
