Sept 5, 2013 – Images of Sheikh Ibrahim Niass & Tijani Spotted At Ikorodu, Lagos Mosque; Nigerians Have Mixed Feelings

Close to a year after a woman reportedly delivered a child with a miniature copy of Holy Quran in Lagos state Nigeria and another born with Islamic rosary in Ogun state, another amazing turn of event has occurred in Lagos.

At a low-key mosque in Owode Onirin area of Ikorodu, Lagos, perceived images of some Islamic clerics who died decades ago were believed to have made sudden appearances on the walls of Dawiz Central Mosque in the area.

When journalists visited the mosque, thousands of people and passers-by storm the mosque to have a glimpse.

The images were identified as that of late Sheikh Ahmada Tijani, (Algeria) Sheikh Ibraheem Niass, (Senegal) Sheikh Jamiu Bulala. (Nigeria)

Although the images were not clear as at the time Vanguard visited, but those who spoke to Vanguard said the images were clearer on Tuesday when they were first noticed.

According to Eye-witness: “The images were noticed on Tuesday September 3, on the walls of the mosque which was constructed a few months ago and owned by Sheikh Musa Alegbeleye.”

It was gathered that four months ago, the image of Sheikh Jamiu Bulala Islamic Cleric, who had died two decades ago appeared first faintly to the consternation of Muslim faithful and they decided never to make it public to creat any doubt.

The strange occurrence has turned the serene Owode Onirin area into a Makkah of sorts as people thronged the area not only to see but to also offer some prayers. Right inside the mosque, people were seen holding bottles/satchets of water muttering prayers and shouting Allahu Akbar (God is great). Some were even seen bowing to the image.

Efforts to speak with the founder of the group and leader of the mosque, Sheikh Alegbeleye, was futile, as we were told he was sleeping after observing several vigil prayers.

Speaking on the development and an eye-witness, the President of Islamic society of Nigeria, Lagos State Mukadam Alhaji Samodu Onikoyi confirmed the appearance of the images. “We started noticing a very faint image which came with intermittent brightness on the inside wall of the mosque which were replica of the portrait of Sheikh Ibrahim Niass, Sheikh Jamiu Bulala and Sheikh Ahmaa Tijani engraved on the walls of the building.”

How it Happened: “A member of the mosque Alhaja Idayatu Idera Afolabi first noticed it and she rushed out to inform everybody and when we saw it, we decided to cover it, because we thought if we announce it, people will think it is ruse that one is trying to play on their intelligence. But when I also saw it, I was greatly terrified, wondering how such thing could have happened”.

“My thought was that the image would eventually disappeared but on the second day, it brightened more and started showing on all sides of the building which made us to still cover it untill it became public“.

An eye-witness also disclosed that attempt was made by some individuals to wash off the images but to no avail; adding that the more they try to rub it off, the more the images become clearer.

Non-Muslims’ comment

I don’t believe it — Mrs Oluranti Jonson

For me, that image is not real and it’s an evil imagination. Because the Bible says Jesus will come down with the Holy Saints and Prophet at the last day. And I will advice those clerics to stop deceiving people because I don’t understand what that means and I have not seen such before.

It’s a sign of end time — Mr Mike Nwoha

This is unbelievable, although as a Christian, I’m not trying to say this is evil but to them they believe; it’s a sign of end time and some of them said it is stated in the Koran. So, I cannot judge, only God knows the truth about it. All I can say is that we are all serving the living God, there should not be anything like the Muslims are idol worshipers but to me this is a sign of end time. So, people should mend their ways.

Also, one Mrs Idayatu Afolabi said: “When we saw that the image, it was a strange thing, I told my husband to inform those that know better than us, it was then we called on the Imam who told us not to announce it until now that the images decided to brighten up on the wall of the mosque building “.
The shout of “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great) rented the air as hundreds of people continue to find their ways to the the Mosque in Owode Onirin to have a glimpse

Islam doesnt even support Such claims because not once was the image of the prophet seen after his death.Please let us stop acting sentimental about issues like this.I’m tired of d high rate of religion Fanatism in dis country.

  7. What is wrong with all this Muslim ? If they know that their religion is from God why are they causing problem everywhere after all they said that their region is peace why is it that there is no peace in their lives and they are also taking peace away from people. They lie about everything just to be accepted. Why are they forcing their religion on people? I believe they are delusional they don’t even understand themselves. What stupid image, once you are dead you are dead until the day of judgement. Those imam in that mosque are just looking for every way to 419 people anyway God is patient and he will wait for them to repent.

  9. WHY ARE PEOPLE BRAIN WASHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    In light of the absolutely clear guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah, there is absolutely no such thing as ghosts! The only beings whom Allah has created who have the choice to do good and evil as he wills are the human beings and the jinns. Ghosts are nothing but the imaginations, whims, conjectures and guess-works of the ignorant people!
    In light of the absolutely clear guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah, no soul or spirit of the deceased can escape the clutches of the Angels of Allah, nor do the Angels of Allah set them free to go about and ‘haunt’ whom they will!!!!!
    The souls of the deceased are secured by the Angels of Allah and are placed in a place called the ‘Barzakh’; neither can the soul of the deceased leave this secured place, nor can they come down to earth, nor do they have the power to interact with any human beings or jinns from ‘Barzakh’!
    Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 23 Muminoon verses 99-100:
    99 (In Falsehood will they be) until when death comes to one of them he says: “O my Lord! send me back (to life)
    100 In order that I may work righteousness in the things I neglected.” By no means! It is but a word he says; before them is a ‘Barzakh’ (Veil or Partition) till the Day they are raised up.
    In light of the above clear guidance of the Glorious Quran, the souls of the deceased will remain in the Barzakh till the Lord Creator, Glorified and Exalted is He, Decrees to raise them up on the Day of Judgment.

    Like the human race, the Jinns are a creation of Allah. They are born; they die, and spend their lives similar to ours in a sphere of their own. They have their own sets of trials and tribulations, worries and happiness, pain and relief, obedience and dis-obedience to Allah, etc. like the human beings. They too have a ‘free will’ to choose between obedience and dis-obedience, right and wrong, Truth and falsehood; and they too will be gathered by Allah on the Day of Judgment to give a full accounting of their deeds.

    They are a distinct creation from the human race, and the human beings and jinns have very little or no real interaction between each other.
    Keep your belief firm and steadfast in your Lord All-Powerful and whenever you sense this futile effort of the accursed SHAYTAAN trying to instill some mischief, immediately turn to your Lord and seek refuge in Him Alone; it is expected that your Lord Most Merciful will guard you and your family with His Protection and Mercy.
    The incessant occurrence of Sheik Ibrahim Niass, Jamiu Bulala and Ahmada Tijani anywhere in the world is SHAYTAAN way of destroying people’s faith in Allah… Your been a Muslim which you have been building for over the years that have never guarantee your heaven is now toy with by the Accursed SHAYTAAN. I can still see some ill- Muslims bowing down for the image when Quran says
    “And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Do not bow down (prostrate) to the sun nor to the moon, but only bow down (prostrate) to “Allah” Who created them, if you (really) worship Him.” [Quran 41:37]
    taking water to the image and start doing a lot of BIDAH things

  10. The appearance of d images is something that is unacceptable islamically, and it could be caused by so many factors. In as much as I don’t know the source if the images, neither have I seen, nor am I a follower of the pple deir images appeared, I’m not mincing words to say that those images are from a satanic source and should be greatly avoided. I might not understand the brain behind d scenario, but I do understand that this is one of the devil’s plot to lead men astray, coz I’ve heard of something like this…not in the form of image, but a voice calling out to a very faithful servant of ALLAH that all d prayers he’s offered in his lifetime is enough, that he should stop offering prayers ….as someone who’s well versed in the doctrine of islam, he automatically knew that the voice was coming from the devil, and he replied immediately that “oh! satan, I know it’s you, nd your plot to lead me astray ….I seek refuge in ALLAH from your evil” and the voice stopped. That’s a very big test of faith for such a man, and he successfully passed for two main reasons that’s is sincerity, and knowledge. My humble message to every Muslim who is opportuned to see this is that ….happenings as this should be greatly avoided and not be believed. Islam is a religion that teaches the worship of one God, when we begin to hold scholars to such regard as reading unnecessary meanings to their supposed images appearing and even worshiping their images, that automatically nullifies your being a Muslim, and your ibadah. Besides islam is a religion that is strict about imaging esp in mosques ….so when pple begin to use appearance of images in a mosque as a divine sign, we should be intelligent enough to realize that a fowl is being played on our intelligence. Dear Muslims be warned, and please let all endeavour to seek for knowledge so that things like these won’t get us carried away. As for the xtains talking out of point, I’ll only advice you first try to understand your religion before bashing others bcos all I can perceive is ignoramus, and you know that is worse than Ignorance. It’s also prevalant among you xtains that you always look for every little opportunity to insult Muslims and islam, that is hypocrisy…Deal with your problems. In as much as I don’t believe in your religion, I’ve never failed to remember that I don’t have any right to insult you, and you reserve every right to my respect ….y don’t you excercise thesame courtesy with your Muslim neighbours. The last time I checked, there was not an element of propagation in the story, so y attach that to the story, and this same you will come back to bash us with it again. May ALLAH (S.W.T) guide us aright, and for those that are going astray, may He help them find their way back to the straight path. Aameen!

  11. it isn’t a must for dem to believe,dey are non-believers…………Allahu Akbar,La illaha Illalahu,Muhammadu Rasulullahi,Salallahu allehi wasalam….If u lik join us,n if u dnt,Die as unbelieversss………F**k fake religion……Allah s d best………..Islam s Authentic………..Evetybody join me praise Allah(SWT)
