Group Launches Foundation in Honour of Late Shiekh Albani
Although details of the group which gave birth to the initiative is still sketchy as at the time of this report, Abusidiqu gathered that the foundation was established to preserve and spread through all available means the great works of the Sheikh.
The foundation we learnt will also in the future offer scholarship to students irrespective of their religion or belief.
This is in line with the dreams of the late scholar who believes that the Muslim world required technological development in order to face current challenges.
In a previous interview, he said: “My belief is that Muslims must engage in the acquisition of western education known as ‘Boko’. If we can have youths that have mastered the jurisprudence of Islam, who are as well vast in western education, it is likely that in the future we would have leaders that would imbibe the fear of Allah in everything they do.
“It is this belief that made me to now go back to school to pursue my M.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. I am doing this because I know that Islam needs this education that I am pursuing. For me, this is why Boko is compulsory on all Muslims.
“We have good example in the present leadership of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, where combination of Boko and Islamic education led to the emergence of good leaders. We now have a unique situation in ABU where the university is being driven by people who have the combination of Islamic and western education, and we are witnessing a significant change in the administration and development of the university. This is what Nigeria needs; leaders with fear of Allah,” Sheikh Albani said.
Sheikh Muhammad Auwal Adam Albani, a known critic of the Boko Haram movement, who also has had a running battle even with the authorities, was killed Saturday night by gunmen in Zaria, Kaduna State alongside his wife and son.
A twitter handle @SheikhAlbaniZar has been created to propagate his works.
