On Interfaith Dialogue By Bashir Lucas Samson Lukman

In a supposed interfaith dialogue in the south-eastern part of Nigeria, the topic for that day was, “The Bible or Qur’an, which is the word of God?”.  I went on stage then started to talk about the errors, contradictions and anachronisms in the bible as well as the supremacy of the Qur’an.

Islam and Racism, Tribalism and Ethnicism By Bashir Lucas Samson Lukman

While Shirk ( believing Wallace D. Fard was the mahdi, even Allah in flesh and their embrace of Dianetics) disqualifies members of the Nation Of Islam from being Muslims, their racist ideologies  contradicts the Qur’an and Sunnah. Malcom X said these about them,   – That black people were the original people of the world…

Indeed, observing the stars, sun, moon, seas, oceans, sky, mountains and every other thing around us, one’s list of appreciation would be endless.

The Very Many Spiritual Lies and Deceit By Bashir Lucas Samson Lukman

He is depicted with two faces, one cheerful and one melancholy, symbolizing the uncertainty of the future.” “”Solanio suggests that Antonio is as strange a figure as Janus,…
