“Jesus was neither killed nor crucified” – Professor Oloyede

In contrast to erroneous beliefs of adherents of some faith that ‘Issa, son of Maryam, was crucified and resurrected, Professor Abdulrahman Oloyede, the Chief Imam of University of Ibadan central mosque, has called on muslims to disregard such proclamation in his Friday sermon

In today's sermon, the Imam urged Muslims to hold steady the rope of Allah and abide by His words as Allah has decreed worship to him and to no other. He admonished Muslims to disregard the belief in the trinity of Jesus.

He corroborated this by citing Qur’an 4:156-158 which states,

The Chief Imam of University of Ibadan, Professor Abdul Rahman Oloyede, in his Friday sermon, which is a sequel to last week's sermon on the International Women’s Day celebration, has emphasised the importance of marriage and the responsibility that accompanies it. Muslims were advised to maintain the ties of kinship (of descendants of same parents). He elucidated this by citing Qur’an 4 vs 1 which states:

Come to me;
I will give you a mean;
In my father’s means;
In a bid to get a mean;
The fellow is missed;
And that is the common mean;
By which my brother is missing;
He is a trackless train!

I've searched like a Knight-
errant; wandering all day and night,
for the Manifest Light1
which will guide2 me aright.

Until I found you, O! Fountain
of knowledge, who would humble a mountain 3
Thou art
the medicine4 of the heart.
