Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) under the leadership of its President-General, His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, the Sultan of Sokoto, with absolute respect, love and unflinching followership to RASULULLAH sends salutations of reverence to the noblest of all creations; Prophet Muhammad Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, who was sent by Allah SWT as a mercy to the entire world (Qur’an 21:107).
May Allah’s plentiful, beautiful and fruitful blessings be upon the house-hold of the Prophet (PBUH) whom Allah SWT Has Cleansed and Purified [against any impurity] (Qur’an 33:33). May these blessings extend to the Prophet’s companions for whose praise worthy qualities Allah SWT reserved forgiveness and mighty reward; and are despised only by the misguided and the kuffar (unbelievers), (Qur’an 48:29).
In line with the above declaration, the Jama’atu Nasril Islam boldly condemned the acclaimed Kano cleric who relishes in denigrating the House-hold and the companions of the Prophet (PBUH), which tantamounts to disrespect to RASULULLAH. The generation of the Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) is the best of all generations hence anyone who tries to insult or malign their integrity would be vehemently opposed by every true sincere Muslim the world over. Thus, the actions of Abdul Jabbar of Kano stand condemned, detested and completely opposed. It is clearly an indirect insult on the personality of the noble Prophet (PBUH) which we will never take lightly.
In the same vein, the Jama’atu Nasril Islam commends the timely intervention of the Kano State Government as it suspended the activities and “preachings” of the said Abdul Jabbar throughout the State pending the outcome of investigations instituted against him. We pray that Allah SWT will continue to guide the government and support it in all its noble undertakings. We also urge the government to sustain the tempo until all such blasphemous innuendoes are completely eradicated and the Muslim societies are freed from such quasi-Muslim scholars.
The ‘Zauren Malamai’ of Kano State has really played a vital but expected role in tackling the vituperations of Abdul Jabbar and prompting the government to action. The Ulama’ should not relent in galvanizing the Ummah of the Prophet (PBUH) under the teachings of pristine Islam devoid of attacking the personalities of the Prophet’s house-holds and his revered companions. We urge the Ulama’ to continue to unite and present a common front as a vanguard for the protection of Islam from any form of attack and falsification. We pray to Allah SWT to continue to guide these Ulama’ and preserve them upon goodness.
The Muslim Ummah is hereby urged to persistently seek for the true knowledge and understanding of Islam so as to practice the religion without being swayed and deceived by unguided “scholars”. The Ummah should reject any acclaimed scholar who derailed from the true teachings of our beloved Prophet (PBUH). We should remain prayerful, watchful and resolute. May Allah guide us aright.
Lastly, the Jama’atu Nasril Islam pray for Allah’s guidance, protection, support and fortification against satanic whispering. May we be among the true followers of RASULULLAH until death.
