Sultan of Sokoto

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, has called on people all over the world not to ascribe crimes and acts of terrorism to Muslims.

The Sultan, who made the call yesterday during the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) General Assembly/National Executive Council meeting in Benin, said there are many bad people who are not Muslims.

“I’ve never heard of Christian terrorists, but we have heard of so many Christians or adherents of other religions who commit heinous crimes against humanity. But they didn’t claim to do it for their religions and we did not hold the crimes against their religions.

“I am very glad that about two weeks ago, the Pope made a very strong statement defending Islam as a religion of peace. That is Pope, the leader of over two billion Catholics in the world. I think that is a message for all of us whether we are Muslims, Christians, Jews or whatever,” he said.

He added, “As Muslims, we want nothing but a very peaceful and stable Nigeria. Government at all levels should treat Muslims fairly. What is due to Muslims must be given to them. It is not a favour to us; it is our right. And we hold on to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria that guarantees freedom of worship.’

  1. Whatever you added after admitting that we the Christians are not troublesome people is all about you. Thank you for admitting at the first place

  2. I think you made it clear. Christians cannot carry out terrorist activities, it's unchristian to do that. So no former Christian now turned terrorist can claim Christianity as a motivation for terrorism. But mr Sultan we cannot keep quiet when every Islamic terrorist claims (rightly or wrongly) that the desire to impose Islam is their motivation. Hence the term Islamic terrorism.

  3. Sultan hear yourself out!.your religion preach evil and evil shall befell on them.terrorist they're and terrorist they shall be!!.thanks for admitting first!

  4. Sultan in fairness to you, you seem to be peace loving either to cajole us as your Koran support faking a thing in order to attack and kill your target. Check your koran well and see the teachings therein that give rise to Islamic terrorism. For example, this is just one out of hundreds of verses in your Koran that affirms this. Qur'an (9:23) – "O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if they take pleasure in
    disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers" Even family members are not
    to be taken as friends if they do not accept Islam. (There are harsher interpretations of this verse. The same (ninth)
    sura advocates "slaying the unbeliever wherever ye find them").
    Is this an act of terror or of peace?

    • In fairness to you, you should have check the verses on the same Chapter 9 of the Holy Qur'an before and after the (9:23) you quoted. Your judgment will have been more apt. Anyway this is what Verse 23 of Chapter 9 (Al-Tawba) said. "O ye who believe take not for protectors your fathers and your brothers if they love infidelity above Faith: if any of you do so, they do wrong". So, Mr. Sunday Ojebiyi, show us where the Surah advocates according to you "Slaying the unbeliever where ye find them" in of your quote?

      Moreover, I believe you must have a friend who is Muslim or Mallam that can interpret the verse properly to you. Islam does not encourage slaying of even animals talk less of HUMAN BEING.

      Are you aware that the same Qur'an you quoted said "Killing of a soul in the eyes of Allah is like killing the entire humanity, so also safe guarding of a SOUL is like safe guarding the entire HUMANITY in the eyes of the Creator (Allah).Don't Qur'an did not said Muslim but Human soul.

      Am liken your interpretation of the Verse under review by you to the erroneous understanding of Islam by Boko Haram. Islam goes North well they (BH) goes South, which means they will never meet because they are not even parallel to start with.

      Remain, bless!

  5. One would think the sultan has some brain matter concealed somewhere within that turban. It is called Islamic terror because the acts of terror are carried out in the name of Islam and it's propagation, stupid!!!

  6. My dear Sultan, does it mean that those people that killed Mrs Bridget Agbaheme are not Muslims? Is it Christians that shout allahu-akbar after committing heinous crime like killing of a fellow human being in the name of religion?

  7. Yes, the sultan spoke well. Any terrorist traced to be Christian must have converted to Islam hence his change in faith, orientation… about christianity.
    Now to hear that a christian is a terrorist is very rear because Jesus Christ whom we follow never committed any act of terrorism.
    Sultan, thank you for making this clarity as I advise that all Muslims should hence preach peace as it is noticed across the world now that every Muslim dominated territories suffer a very high degree of terrorism.

  8. It's unfortunate that a sultan who should know better is here talking trash. ISIS, Alcadae,boko haram, etc, etc. Are they Christian groups? Does the name, Muslim terrorism originate by mistake? Trying to convince the people to think otherwise exposes more ignorance than wisdom on the part of these terrorists.

  11. Google and read about Christian terrorists in Uganda called Lords Resistance Army who do all the acts of terrorism that boko haram is doing in the name of Christianity.

  12. Prove that your religion preaches peace by ending the violence against non Muslims in the north,I love peace and wish that the country could be peaceful but my 22years in the north proved that Muslims hate peaceful coexistence

  13. May the Lord Jesus forgive you, as you associates Christianity to that movement working to stop Muslim terrorism in Uganda

  15. Muslims will never stop being sentimental. U guys should learn to call a spade what it is and not painting things to make you feel justified.
