Preach According to Islamic Tenets, Sultan Tells Islamic Scholars
The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, yesterday called on Islamic scholars in the country to preach in accordance with Islamic tenets to avoid creating confusion in the minds of the people.
The monarch made the plea at the closing ceremony of the 27th state Quranic Recitation Competition held at the Sultan Maccido Institute of Quran and General Studies, Sokoto.
According to him, the call became necessary in view of the current security situation in the country.
He stressed the need for Islamic scholars to preach in line with the teachings of Prophet Mohammad.
The Sultan noted that Islamic scholars had a large followership who adhere to their teachings, hence the need for them to preach with decorum to avoid creating chaos in the society.
