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.”
Prophet Rufus Phala makes church members drink bleach
Prophet Rufus Phala makes his church members drink popular household bleach.

Why Prophet Rufus Phala made his church members drink bleach
Before giving it to them, the South African prophet assured them that they were not actually drinking Jik because it had been turned into the blood of Jesus Christ.
He encouraged them to drink the bleach so that they could be healed. He went on to liken this ‘miracle’ to the Biblical story of Jesus turning water into wine.
In an interview with the Daily Sun, he explained that he has the power to change one toxic thing into something ‘holy’ by simply making a miraculous declaration.
He said, “Yes, it was Jik before I made the declaration. But after I declared it to be the blood of Jesus Christ it means it’s no longer Jik so it won’t harm anyone who consumes it.”
Reacting to this controversial ‘miracle,’ Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva, chairwoman of the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural‚ Religious and Linguistic Communities, condemned the prophet.
She said, “A true man of God will not do such. We’ll be meeting with the religious umbrellas on Thursday to have a conversation about such acts. We want them to stand up and say, ‘Not in our God’s name’.”
According to the Daily Meal, drinking the undiluted bleach, which is a dilution of about 5.25% sodium hypochlorite in water, causes chemical burns.
Reportedly, six people have died after drinking the bleach while four are in critical condition in the hospital.
Despite this claims, Limpopo police spokesman Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe insists that there have been no complaints. However, he encouraged affected members of the Prophet’s church to come forward.
