Facts have emerged to show that no fewer than 288 children, grand and great grand children of Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi, 95 year old leader of the Islamic Sufi group, known as the Tijaniyyah in Nigeria, have memorized the 60-chapter Holy Qur’an.
The cleric is believed to have entered the Cholan Book Of World Records, and is the first person to receive such an award.
Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi has 95 children, 406 grandchildren and 100 great grandchildren.
It was gathered that out of the 95 children, 77 have committed the whole contents of the Holy Qur’an to memory, even as 199 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren have achieved the same feat.
It is confirmed that no human on earth have ever achieved such feat in the history of the world.
