Being an extended version of the public lecture delivered on the occasion of the 25th Imam Khomeini’s Week on 1 June 2014 to the Youths of the Academic Forum of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria at Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Nigeria.

Justice Gabriel O. Kolawole on 2nd December, 2016 due to the fact that most people, including journalists, public affairs commentators, writers and even some of the members of the Islamic Movement sometimes get confused about the actual orders given by the Court on…

Scholars for Dollars

Excesses of kings made palatable by the servility of scholars As Muslims negotiate their way through a maze of conflicting information, they should keep in mind the advice offered by Imam al-Ghazzali in his masterpiece, Ihya’ ‘Ulum al-Din, “Do not seek advice from scholars who stand as supplicants in the court of the ruler. Instead, seek out scholars at whose door the ruler stands in awe!” Three groups of people have caused immense damage to the Ummah in the history of Islam: the munafiqun, the Khawarij, and court scholars.

A Nation That Kills Her Citizens And Justifies It

Last week, two curious events happened in Nigeria and the United States of America respectively. President Donald Trump visited Pittsburgh concerning the Jewish Synagogue shooting. Protesters blocked his way with placards that said that he was not welcome. Trump’s motorcade had to turn around and take another route. As the President of the US, Trump is the most powerful leader in the world, because he controls the strongest army and presides over the country with the strongest influence on global affairs. Even though no American has the right to stop…

Three Years On: Buhari Has Failed Is The Unanimous Judgement

The general opinion across board is that Buhari is incompetent and clueless about how to properly guide this nation out of its numerous troubles. Others opined that Buhari has lost his integrity, while others hold the opinion that he has squandered the enormous goodwill that brought him to power with a landslide. The man who assured us he will not visit foreign hospitals before his election but spent over a sixth of his tenure in a foreign hospital cannot be a man of integrity. A man who maintained an attitude…

The Superfluous Trial of El-Zakzaky

The federal government and the Kaduna State Government are clearly not being advised appropriately on the Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky case. I am still struggling to recover from the shock of the decision to drag the Shitte cleric/leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, and his wife to a court in Kaduna this week on charges bordering on culpable homicide and unlawful assembly. Of course, the federal government is a party to this dangerous game. El-Zakzaky was to be formally charged on Tuesday but because other defendants were not present, the…
