Sharia Law is Only For Muslims – Sultan of Sokoto

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Abubakar has disclosed that Shari’a Law is only for Muslims. According to him, Shari’a is not binding on non-Muslims. He said this while informing the 2022 Batch ‘B’ Stream 11 corps members in Sokoto State.

He said:

Speaking on Thursday, August 4 when the NYSC management board in the state led by the state coordinator and some selected corps members paid him a courtesy visit, the Sultan assured the corners of their safety despite the security challenges facing the country.
Abubakar reiterated that they would be allowed to practice the religion of their choice and nobody would be coerced to become a 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.
“If you are posted to schools, impact the lives of the students, make them better than you met them.
“If you have a problem at the place of your primary assignment or where you are posted to, contact the district head over there; they are your guardians in the community.’’
