Nigerian Muslims Dissatisfy with Islamic clerics who prayed for Bobrisky at his housewarming (Video)
Many Nigerian Muslims have taken to their social media handles to express their angry reactions after a video showing some Islamic clerics organizing a special prayer for popular crossdresser Idris Okuneye (Bobrisky) went viral.
Bobrisky who is the most popular crossdresser in the country organized a prayer session in his new home and invited Islamic clerics.
He was filmed sitting at the centre of the room as clerics surrounded him to recite some portion of the Islamic Holy Book, the Qur’an.
Several Muslims across the country who reacted to the video rained curses on the Islamic clerics with many accusing them of being slaves to Bobrisky’s money.
According to them, crossdressing is forbidden (Haram) in Islam. Some cited the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to have cursed men who imitate women.
“The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him cursed from the men who imitate women, and from women who imitate men. (Sahih Bukhari),” a Nigerian Muslim, Muhammad Olayiwola cited a saying of the Prophet.
As the video gained more attention on social media, Nigerians especially Muslims criticised the clerics heavily for agreeing to pray for a crossdresser who they said had been cursed. Some others admonished them not to curse them but to pray for them.
See some reactions below;
“Awon Alfa alatenuje, shame on them. They’re the one destroying this world,” Rukayat wrote on Facebook.
“Subhanallah ya rabbi and this people will put Quran in front of this satan ..may God forgive us,” Olatokunbo wrote.
“No insult. Forget about Alfas. For the fact that Idris is still incline towards Islam shows that he still has ISLAMIC faith. But by insulting him and Alfa, how do you rectify his affairs?. What they are doing here is not shirk. And cross dressing is not a major sin. So y’all need to slow down. They just need to advise him. His situation is similar to alcoholic. Read the Quran and see how Allah slowly forbade Muslims from drinking alcohol. Please muslims, don’t use your myopic and uneducated approach to chase people from away Islam,” Olayomi wrote.
