A prominent Islamic scholar in Zaria, Kaduna State, Sheikh Moosa Yousuf Onogu has described as unislam, moves by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to make Covid-19 vaccination as a condition for external pilgrims going for hajj this year.
Sheikh Onogu, in a short statement today, said that to make vaccination compulsory for intending external pilgrims for admittance into the Kingdom for the purpose of performing hajj is haram.
“It is only the sick people that should be prevented from entering the mosque. “What they should do is to ask intending pilgrims to perform fitness test not compulsory Coronavirus vaccination.”
The Sheikh described the idea of compulsory vaccination as evil plan, with Muslim mostly to be affected.
“If they insist on going ahead with ” this evil plan” Muslims have ways out, suggesting prayer to be said before any Muslim present himself or herself for the vaccination.
