Sharia Law Only For Muslims – Sultan Of Sokoto
The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Abubakar, has assured the 2022 Batch ‘B’ Stream 11 corps members in Sokoto State that the Shari’a Law is not binding on non-Muslims in the state.
The Sultan gave the assurance on Thursday in his palace when the NYSC management team in the state led by the state coordinator and some selected corps members paid him a courtesy visit.
He also assured them that their safety is guaranteed despite some security challenges facing the country.
Abubakar further assured them that they will be allowed to practise the religion of their choice.
He noted that Sharia law is not binding on non-Muslims, stressing that nobody would be coerced to join Muslim against his or her wish.
“In Sokoto, Sharia law is only binding on Muslims, nobody will force you to wear Hijab or force you to obey Islamic laws if you are not a Muslim,” he stated.
