Terrorism Has No Place In Islam – Sultan

The Sultan of Sokoto and President of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar has condemned the Boko Haram Islamic sect over the wanton destruction of lives and properties by the sect.

The Sultan, who spoke at the National Prayer for Peace and Security, organised by the council at the National Mosque, Abuja, in Abuja, Sunday described the group as unislamic, saying “terrorism has no place in Islam,”

The Sultan called on the gathering of Islamic clerics, traditional rulers and political leaders from Northern Nigeria and other parts of the country as well as all well-meaning members of the Nigerian public to unite against the insurgents.

“We must rise up, as always, with one voice to condemn all acts of terrorism, condemn those terrorists wherever they are and try our possible best as Muslims to ensure peace reigns in our community,” he said.

The Sultan pledged his commitment to assisting the government in the efforts to restore peace to the troubled Northern Nigeria, in Particular and the nation as a whole.

“We are committed to helping the government at all levels to bring peace in Nigeria. Whatever we can do, as long as it is not against Islam, we are ready to do it 100 percent,” he said.

“We have to make it very clear… that the situation in the country is very serious. You are fighting enemies with no boundary. Terrorists are everywhere. They are among us but we don’t know them. In this case, you don’t know the enemy. The person sitting next to you might be one of those terrorists. You don’t know”.

Alh Abubakar also urged Muslims, especially those in leadership position to shun corruption and any act that could negatively affect the development of the country.


  1. We don’t expect anything from u other than to call ur people to order to stop act of terrorism, all around the world,any act of terrorism is always carried out by muslim….” WHY U ALWAYS”, is a very big question which u must answer. If u claim u are worshiping true God then it is no sin trying to ensure peace n order in Nigeria n around the world. Except if u are telling us today that Islamic law is different from the order of the law of God of Heaven everyone knows de world over.

  2. True and well said mr Alhaji Abubakar,but what Joe said is true call of your people if you kw dem.innoncent lives are gone nd their bloods are cryin out for Justice.If truelly you re against dem.

  3. Joe, Stella ur mouth shouldn’t b ur anus. I believe d 2 of you are those educated illiterate. Who just nonsense. Christians are majorly in involved in terrorism,some were caught disguised as Muslims just to put Muslims in a bad light. In Boko Haram of Nigeria, CAN & Christians are sponsors & collaborators. If ignorant illiterates like d two of u don’t no anything, u don’t have to shit from ur mouths. Stupid people. FOOLS.

  4. Alh,u can tell that to those who had not lived in nigeria for at least ten years or those who do not know islam,as for well fuctioning brain like us we know that islam is blood sucking religion,and if u still claim otherwise:then can u give nigerians two evidence of peace brought by muslem in this country? u guys should stop fulling us or the world,as noting can bring peace in nig,execept disintergration by the grace of GOD.
