On behalf of the President and Custodian of the Ilorin Central Juma’at Mosque, His Royal Highness, Alhaji (Dr.) Ibrahim Sulu Gambari, CFR, the Emir of Ilorin, the Board of Trustees and the Central Working Committee of the Ilorin Central Juma’at Mosque, I express sincere appreciation of the entire Ilorin Muslim Community to Mall Salihu Mustapha for his donation of a total sum of 10 Million Naira to the Mosque maintenance fund within a period of 5 months.
I acknowledge with gratitude the donation of the sum of 5 Million Naira by Mall. Salihu Mustapha, in the month of September, 2020 to the Mosque account as his contribution to the maintenance of the edifice.
At the grand finale of Kwara State Quran Recitation Competition held on Saturday 20th February, 2021 where he was Special Guest, Mall. Mustapha seized the opportunity to commiserate with me on the death of my friend, Alhaji Umar Ayinla Aminu Saro, CON, the major financier of the mosque during his lifetime. He again requested for the account details of the mosque and by Monday 23rd February, 2021, made another donation of the sum of 5 Million Naira in to the account.
This is a good gesture from a son of the Emirate that deserves acknowledgement and appreciation.
His Royal Highness, the Emir was highly delighted about news of the donation during the periodic briefing on the activities of the mosque and offered prayers for Mall. Mustapha and other supporters and benefactors of the Mosque. The Emir also expressed the hope that other well-to-do indigenes of the Emirate would emulate the good gesture of Mall. Salihu Mustapha.
May Allah (SWT) replenish the pocket of Mall. Salihu Mustapha in multiple folds and grant his heart’s desires, bestow on him long life and good health in the service to his community, Islam and humanity. Amin.
