Deborah Samuel: Kill Non-Muslims And Miss Paradise – Sheikh Gumi Warns Islamic Extremists
Controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Abubakar Ahmad Gumi, has condemned the killing of Deborah Samuel, a 200-level student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto State.
Speaking at a religious teaching class in his Kaduna Juma’at mosque, Gumi noted that the Prophet Mohammed (SAW) was at several points during his lifetime insulted by non-Muslims.
The cleric stated that Prophet Mohammed refused to attack or even kill persons who assassinated his characters.
Gumi made this known while conducting a religious teaching class in his Kaduna Juma’at mosque.
While calling on Islamic clerics to impart sound religious tenets to their adherents instead of instigating them to perpetrate ‘reprehensible’ acts, Sheikh Gumi said the best way Muslims can show that they love Prophet Mohammed (SAW) is by adhering to his religious teaching, and totally obeying him, instead of killing people over trivial issues.
According to PRNigeria, the cleric said both Nigerian Muslims and Christians have agreed to live harmoniously together, hence no religious law is applied in the country, being a secular State.
“Hence, anyone who kills a non-Muslim who they have agreed to live peacefully with, will not smell the fragrance of Paradise for 40 years,” he said.
“If we think by killing Deborah, people who are not of the same faith with us will stop insulting our prophet, then we are in delusion,” Gumi concluded.
Naija News had reported earlier that Deborah, a 200-level student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, was lynched and set ablaze by her Muslim colleagues for allegedly insulting Islam’s Prophet Mohammed.
The angry mob had stormed Deborah’s hostel, dragged her out before beating her to death and setting her body ablaze.
