Boko Haram Has Gone Astray-Imam 

By IsidoreAbah

The Imam of the Buea Central Mosque, Alhaji Mohammed Abubrkar, has condemned in strong terms the recurrent havoc wrecked by Boko Haram insurgents in the three Northern regions of Cameroon.

According to the Imam, killing, abduction and the burning down of houses perpetrated by this terrorist group, under the guise of fighting to spread Islamic doctrine, is contrary to the teachings of Prophet Mohammed and Islam.

“Boko Haram insurgents have strayed from the teaching of Prophet Mohammed and Islam, which preaches love, tolerance, sharing, respect for one another and peaceful coexistence,” the Imam said. 

The Imam was addressing the Moslem Community on Monday, July 28, in Buea, as Moslem faithfuls in the Southwest Region joined the international community to commemorate the feast of Ramadan. 

The feast which comes 30 days after fasting and prayers, according to the Imam, provided an opportunity for Islamic faithfuls to revisit the teachings and life of the Prophet Mohammed. 

“With the recent challenges confronting Islam, one might be tempted to question if what is prevailing now is the same message Prophet Mohammed brought to humanity. That is why I have requested all Moslem faithfuls to go back and study the life of Prophet Mohammed, because we are in a journey, and if we have lost our way, it is better to go back and start all over again,” the Imam asserted.

Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar decried the fact that the activities of Boko Haram have led to the death of so many people and brought untold suffering to humanity. 

“Allah decrees in the Quran that life is so important to the extent that, if you save one soul, you save humanity and if you destroy one soul, you destroy humanity. How can Boko Haram be killing in the name of God? This is contrary to the teaching of Allah and the teaching of Islam. Boko Haram is strange to Islam,” the Imam stated.
