Sheikhs or Criminals?- Yahoo Sheikhs By Bashir Lucas Samson Lukman
Praise be to Allah ( the most exalted) who blessed us with the religion of truth, the path of bliss.
Once I followed an Ustaadh to deliver a lecture on Comparative Religion. He was about to start the lecture when the organizers pleaded with him to mind what he would say because a christian had given them a reasonable amount of money to support one of their projects. if the Ustaadh does not mind his words, with the Christian present, he (the Christian) might be displeased. “WHAT NONSENSE“, I retorted. How do you expect one to deliver a lecture on Comparative Religion without talking about the incredibility of Paul, the Bible and the Jesus-was-crucified lie? “So, the one who gives you money can die in their disbelieve while those who are poor are entitled to Da’wah…”
If we look around, there are many criminals in guise of Sheikhs and Shehus in Yoruba Land. It is not extreme if we call them Yahoo Sheikhs.If they are not seeing your problems and solutions, they are distributing titles with heavy turbans. No thanks to those Allah has blessed but are religiously empty, no understanding of the religion, full of show-off, wanting to be recognized. Their major victims are women.
They also have different titles that are not found in the Qur’an or Sunnah. One thing, I am sure, is that anyone who has understanding of the Qur’an and Sunnah as understood by the pious predecessors will reject these criminal titles. Sadly, they award those with questionable personalities. These Yahoo Sheikhs are at the forefront of opposing those who call to the the Qur’an and Sunnah as that would destroy their business.
I had given up when a popular fuji singer who would do all sort with semi-naked women in his videos with obscene words was given a title, even those who sell alcohol and those known to be fantastically corrupt are given these titles. Sadly, they are busy collecting money while Dhur and ‘Asr pass then they come up with twisted narrations to justify their shenanigan.
Days ago, it was reported that the Nigerian cross-dresser, Okuneye Idris aka Bobrisky allegedly donated 500,000 naira at Lizzy Anjorin’s coronation/turbaning as the Borokini Adini of Nigeria. I do not know which is more pathetic between the shehu’s praises of Bobrisky or the coronation of Lizzy. Commenting on Bobrisky, Lizzy Anjorin was reported to have said, ” Bobrisky was misunderstood by most and informed her followers that he’s just a nice person, who came up with an ingenious way to escape poverty”. Exactly, it is all about the Dunya, not the hereafter>
While these yahoo sheikhs are urged to repent, one thing, I am sure, is that you cannot disobey Allah then pay Sheikhs and build Masjid with filthy money to buy forgiveness.
Allah needs sincere repentance, not bribe…
