Alh. Yakub Gobir: Good Within And Outside His Homestead

By Abdulazeez A Y

Everything on earth whether in the category of Animals or Plants and even the non-living things are subservient to human kind, but human beings are the trustees, not absolute owners.

By reminding of this fundamental notion, the law of nature advises property owners to make property grow for their own sustenance and giving to less privileged people. A property owner’s right to property is limited by the community good, and can be removed if the person is incapable of understanding this limitation.

People of virtue, piety, and good conduct need to use in humility and moderation all bounties from Allah including physical gifts (e.g., food, clothing, or health), intangible gifts (e.g., influence, power, or talent), and spiritual gifts (e.g., insight into good and evil, or capacity for love) for the well-being of others.

Practicing of regular charity, one of the five pillars of Islam, is meant to show gratitude to God for not being placed in the takers side; and solidarity with the destitutes in the society.

Alh Yakub Garba Gobir has been showing the unfliching tenacity towards making this world a livable place for all and sundry. He is an altruistic personality with his opulence to those within and outside his community.

The ace philanthropist and founder of Gobir Foundation Organization, Alh Yakub Garba Gobir (Wazirin Hausa) has recorded enormous contributions to the development of the state and he couldn't forget to be unsparing to his family.

Truly, A philanthropist is a person who donates time, money, experience, skills or talent to help create a better world. Anyone can be a philanthropist, regardless of status or net worth.

Philanthropy involves charitable giving to worthy causes on a large scale. Philanthropy must be more than just a charitable donation. It is an effort an individual or organization undertakes based on an altruistic desire to improve human welfare.

Wazirin Hausa singlehandedly installed Borehole with Generator for pumping of water to the Gobir Youth Forum - a youth wing association of his homestead.

He chanpioned a million naira projects in the Gobir household and its environ in order to have access to better living and comfortability. Indeed, a spring that didn't forget its source won't dry off.

We are in the era where rich men would be donating to the public purse with show off mentality and whereas their family home cannot boast of them because they didn't show big-hearted course to their family. But, Alh Yakub Gobir distinguised himself by being good both within and outside his homestead.

He enjoys making impactful activities to all without prejudice to societal status, he contributes huge amount of money to the on-going Gambari Central Mosque project.

Those who spend their substance in the cause of Allah, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, for them their reward is with their Lord; on them shall be no fear nor shall they grieve. Kind words and the covering of faults are better than charity followed by injury.

Inter Alia, Hospital Bill settlement cannot be overemphasized as part of what Gobir Foundation Organization is widely known for. School fees payment to the less privileged students irregardless of the tribe or religion is also a pivotal responsibility of the Gobir Foundation Organization courtesy of the Alanu Mekunu - Alh Yakub Garba Gobir.

With his uncommon contributions to wellness of humanity, it is pertinent to appreciate his personality and trailblazing enthusiasm to bring sucour to the marrow of mankind. May Allah in His unending blessings and uncommon mercy be merciful unto the founder of Gobir Foundation Organization and continue to protect him from the evil agents.

Allah the exalted says, "And be steadfast in prayer; practise regular charity; and bow down your heads with those who bow down (in worship). They ask thee what they should spend (In charity). Allah will deprive usury of all blessing, but will give increase for deeds of charity: For He loveth not creatures ungrateful and wicked".
