Sultan of Sokoto speaks on Muslims being ‘illiterates, backward, useless’

Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, the Sultan of Sokoto, has spoken on the alleged claim that Muslims are illiterates and ‘useless.’

The Sultan said that Islamic education is robust and not backward as some people may claim.

Abubakar said this at the centenary celebration of Sheikh Adam Al-Ilory, held at the University of Lagos on Monday.

He said, “We cannot allow people to bring our heads down and say we are useless . We are highly educated.

“We need to take this challenge up and ask ourselves, ‘Why do people look at us Muslims as illiterates?’

“I don’t understand how someone who is very fluent in the Quran, who can recite it off-heart be called an illiterate because he doesn’t speak English.

“Islamic education is perpetually an entity of self -discipline , which involves physical and spiritual training of man.

“It is the balanced growth of man through training of intellect.

“The bulk of Islamic education is meant to facilitate the proper growth of the total personality of man. It is a way of life.

“When we are talking about Islamic education, don’t think we are being backward because it is the making of a total human being and when you become one , you would shun corruption and avoid illegal dealings.”
