Buhari makes case for untainted global education on Islam
By Ismaila Chafe
President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday in Madinah, Saudi Arabia, says the spread of true knowledge of the religion of Islam is the most important task now facing global Muslims.
The President stated this after an extensive tour of the International Fair and Museum of the Prophet’s Biography and Islamic Civilisation in the city as part of his engagement in the Holy City.
He commended the Saudi government for deploying the latest technological tools in presenting the core of Islam, its lofty purposes, and qualitative teachings.
According to the President, the Muslim community needs a system that is futuristic, bringing knowledge and education in a new system that will make for a good understanding of the very features of the religion.
“It is necessary,” said the President, “to have a better understanding of the religion, away from its misconstrued teachings and perceptions as a way to achieving global peace, harmony and progress.”
He praised the Saudi authorities for their efforts to take the world to the established roots of Islamic civilisation, adding, however, that a more concerted international effort was needed.
According to him, the Museum seeks to preserve and present Islam in its true and pure image, and in its noble and elevated teachings, and that it is a message of mercy, love, justice, peace, and moderation, through cultural exhibitions.
He further described the museums as where the beauty of buildings and the majesty of meanings were combined.
“It also seeks to provide a comprehensive cultural overview of the Prophet, his noble manners, great morals, and flexible teachings, in a distinct scientific and research-based approach, using the latest technologies, and the most advanced and creative presentation tools.”
