THE ISLAM OF YORUBAS IS NOT FROM PROPHETIC SCHOOL OF THOUGHT

It should not be surprised if the way Yoruba see and
practise Islam is different from the way they do in the North. The reason is
not farfetched. Everything originates from the source of their Islam. The Islam
Yoruba came in contact with was through traders from Mali according to history.
But in the North, those that brought their Islam were students from the school
of thought of the Prophet that understood there is a mission to accomplish.
This reflects in our attitudes towards Islam.



In the north, they value their Islam most and as students
from the school of thought of the Prophet, they understand there is a mission
to accomplish. They understand the saying of the Prophet that Islam will spread
to all places that have day and night which has not been accomplished. But here
in Yorubas, we were not brought up with that mission and that is why everything
we do is not target at any goal except personal interest.



So, if we are having them (northerners) being well attached
to Islam, establishing and giving priority to nothing but Islam, it shows they
have not forgotten the mission of their great fathers and the school of thought
they graduated from. With that, they have no panic of what their future holds
because majority of what makes a life fit for human habitation are in the hand
of their people unlike here, in Yorubas.



What we are saying in essence is that, in the north, Islam
has been established (although not totally established)and they have many
things to point at as their structure. But here in Yorubas, it is the opposite.
This is as a result of the type of Islam our great fathers came in contact with
that we are practicing, which has no correlation with the mission of
Islam.
