Fight anybody or group who try to stop you from practising Islam – Sultan of Sokoto fires up Muslims

The President General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs and Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar, has called on Muslims to fight any body or group that attempts to stop them from performing their religious obligations.

He said, ”the only thing that will make me to act or ask you to act is only when somebody or a group or some other nations decide to stop us from performing our religious obligations. That is the only way we can fight somebody.”

He made the statement while speaking at a conference organised by Da’wah Co-ordination Council of Nigeria.

The Sultan also warned Muslim clerics against preaching hate messages. According to him, “When somebody or a group or some other nations decide to stop us from performing our religious obligations, we must never take laws into our hands. We must not be law officers. We do not do that in Islam.

“We do not force anybody to join Islam. There is no compulsion in Islam. “Our good deeds, good actions and good interactions as Muslims will give that very bright light to everybody what Islam is and that is what brings people to join us.

“Those who do not want to come as Muslims are free to stay with us and continue working with us to make this country a much better place.

“Whoever wants to fight you, do not fight him; leave him alone. Be very patient. “The only thing that will make me to act or ask you to act is only when somebody or a group or some other nations decide to stop us from performing our religious obligations. That is the only way we can fight somebody.

“But if I am allowed to pursue my religious obligations, say my prayers and pay my zakat and so many other things, I have no problem with anybody. To you, your religion and to me, my religion.”

  1. Fighting and killing are the foundation of Islam, so Sultan threat is not new. All around the world they maim and kill, but they deceive themselves and others that Islam is a religion of peace.

  2. mumu go bck nd rid d statemnt again.he sed “fight dos hu try 2 stop u frm practisn islam” if na peace u want stop dem nt

  3. Fool u can even type good n correct english and you’re here supporting evil from an Islamic fanatic who’s biased

    • There are lots of bigots, suffering from ignorance of the highest level. I’m a Muslim, I’ve studied, lived and worked in Europe, UK to be precise for over 6 years. I have friends; Irish, English, Caribbeans who reverted to Islam at their free will by making attempt to know the true Islam. So come out of your shells guys and read biography of prophet Muhammed (SAW),then you know the true Islam .

      • Is It not the biography of the prophet that rapes, murder, and collect his adopted son’s wife that you said people should read. We have read it and had seen all the atrocities he committed. The word of the true God says by their fruit we shall know them. No body in his/her right mind will turn to islam. What is holy war? I think you need lectures on your prophet and religion

  4. This is very very unprofessional reporting. What the Sultan said is the opposite of what Adelove is reporting. And some idiots are not bothering to read the report before commenting! Today I stop reading ur nonsense!

  5. Adelove! I’m dissapointed in you guys! Your heading is confusing. Some pple will just run to comment without reading the story. Pls, this is religion matter! Something that can promote peace and disrupt peace of the country. You should promote peace as a body and not to disrupt it.

  6. Make sure of all things and hold fast to what is fine. You don’t play by the head line. Even if, he said, “when some people or nations outside want to stop you from practicing your religion, then you can fight.” But people are more interested in the negative, so will not read before starting their usual abusive comments. tete bu people. Anyhow, until you are Muslim, you cannot be radicalized for now to kill at random and alleged to be acquiring 7 virgins in here after. And the 12 Northern States adopting Sharia Law state religion has already made it possible for the radicals to enforce the convert or die drive of the radicals. Religion in a secular state ought to be customary, and subject to written law, and can be declared null and void if not consistent with any written law. But in these Sharia Law states, they have made customary law gain equal footing with written law. Therefore, no matter how unjust, primitive, cruel and inhuman as the case of the Widow who alleged raped, she must die for adultery (and the rapist free) as was the case in Zamfara before the whole world rose to the occasion to rescue the woman. Cases not publicized are getting this barbaric and inhuman justice according to the Sharia Law.
