The Tijjaniyya sect has dissociated itself from a remark by a disciple who allegedly blasphemed Prophet Muhammad last week in Kano.

The alleged blasphemy by Abdul Nyass during a Maulud to celebrate the birthday of Tijjaniyya founder, late Ibrahim Nyass, had resulted in skirmishes in parts of Kano.

Reacting to the incident, Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi and Khalifa Sheikh Isyaku Rabi’u on Wednesday condemned Abdul’s Nyass preaching.

A Daily Trust report quotes Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi as saying during a press briefing: “We are warning some people who in the name of Tijjaniyya are making unguarded statements, we distance ourselves with anybody who did this because anything Islam says is wrong is prohibited in Tijjaniyya. Those who are calling themselves Yan-Hakika are not Muslims, Tijjaniyya never says what is prohibited in Islam is allowed in Tijjaniyya.”

The paper quoted Sheikh Isyaku Rabi’u as declaring during the press briefing that the person who made the offensive utterances is not a member of the sect.
