Father Kukah Must Be Allowed To Practise His Faith And Politics – Garba Shehu

The reported ultimatum by a group based in Sokoto, “Muslim Solidarity Forum,” calling on the Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Most Rev Matthew Hassan Kukah to tender an unreserved apology to the entire Muslim Ummah over his recent “malicious comments” against Islam, or quietly and quickly leave the state, is wrong because it is not in line with the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Under our Constitution, every citizen has the right to, among others, freedom of speech and expression, the right to own property and reside in any part of the country, and the right to move freely without any inhibitions. Nigeria’s strength lies in its diversity. The right for all religions to co-exist is enshrined in this country's Constitution. The duty of the government, more so, this democrat...

Tanasha Donna speaks of empty life before converting to Islam

Tanasha Donna is slowly leaving back her old life. I mean so far she has cut off a number of friends from her former circle; and lately she seems more of a private person unlike before. The party lifestyle has also been reduced to nothing; and judging from her IG stories, I bet Miss Donna now prefers to stay indoors with her young man than jump from one city to another in the name of fun. She however owes all this to Diamond Platnumz; the man that changed her life and career overnight. As we all know, Tanasha Donna’s fame grew after getting into a relationship with Bongo singer, Diamond Platnumz. As much as some of her friends would disagree; truth is, Tanasha was famous before Diamond – but this same man is the reason her name spread like wild fire in Africa. Right? Anyway de...

The Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has accused Matthew Kukah, bishop of Sokoto Catholic diocese of "firing a poisoned arrow at the heart of Islam and Muslims in Nigeria" with his Christmas message.

The JNI in the statement signed by its secretary-general Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, alleged that the Catholic Bishop initiated the attack even when he was welcomed in Sokoto, a state they described as the seat of the Caliphate and the heart of Islam and Islamic scholarship, culture and practices in sub-Saharan Africa. The statement read;   “The attention of the Jama’atu Nasril Islam has been drawn to an irresponsible and seditious Christmas mes...

Rituals Work, But The Money Is From Demons – Alfa Olalekan

What is your take on the view that African traditional religion may die as Christianity and Islam flourish? African traditional religion is as multifaceted as the population of Africans. I don’t think that it will die as soon as it is being envisaged. Rather, it will continue to hide under Islam and Christianity. In actual fact, most Africans are still believers in traditional voodooism rather than Islam and Christianity. They just prefer to wear the garment and facade of Islam and Christianity in order to ‘belong’ or to look modern. So, I am not in the least worried because, in all sincerity, I wish traditional African religion should go into extinction just like mounting on camels for a long journey is going to extinction.

Your rights, duties to another Muslim

All praise is for Allah the Mighty the Exalted, and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon His final Messenger Muhammad Ibn Abdullah and upon his family and companions. The rights and obligations of Muslims with respect to one another are derived from the love of Allah and that of rosullulah that we share.  That is why the spirit of brotherhood in Islam is stronger than even the family ties.  As thick as family bond, once a family member becomes a deviant religiously or better still professes another religion other than Islam which the rest of the family hold dearly to, there is that tendency that the love between them wane. Naturally, those who practice same religion will interact better and operate on the same spiritual plane than others who hold different spiritual ideals. B...
