It became a blog buster and the hottest cake on every media outlet, when the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II declared his love for Jesus even as he is a Muslim.
“Many people are unaware of the fact that one cannot be a Muslim without loving Jesus (Peace be upon him) known in Arabic as Isa (Alayhis Salam),” said the former CBN Governor.
The shocking declaration made on his official Instagram page @SanusiLamidoSanusi on Thursday, October 13, garnered a lot of positive reactions from his followers as they hailed him for embracing unity and peace despite his religion.
Emir Sanusi’s words profess peace, unity and co-existence irrespective of religion differences. His followers on Instagram commended him as one of them said:
“Before reaching that far, have your Highness not seen how ignorant, and intolerant very many of us are to even our own selves? When there’s a mortal rivalry between Islamic sects? If we could not love ourselves because we share different ideologies of Shi’a and Sunni, how then can we see clearly that to be a true Muslim is to have a pure love for Jesus – Abdulnarabi
Recall that Emir Sanusi had visited Asisi to join Pope Francis and other clergies in prayer for world peace.
