Why we defied Sultan, held eid prayers on Wednesday – Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi
Prominent Islamic cleric and scholar, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, says the the decision of his followers to hold Eid Prayers on Wednesday in defiance of the directive of the Sultan of Sokoto, Saad Abubakar, is justified.

Sheikh Bauchi and his followers conducted the eid prayers on Wednesday despite the directive of the Sultan of Sokoto that the prayers should hold on Thursday.

The Sultan, who is the head of the Jamatul Nasir Islam and recognised as the spiritual head of Muslims in the country, had declared Thursday, May 13, 2021, as the day of Salat and the first day of Shawwal because the moon had yet to be sighted.

But Sheikh Bauchi said after Wednesday’s prayers at his residence, that the moon of the month of Shawwal was sighted on Tuesday.

The cleric said the moon was seen in places such as Gombe, Gadau and Kebbi.

He said, “Based on these reports that the moon was sighted, what is said by two righteous people when they see it is enough for us people, or a large crowd.

“That is why we have now come to perform the Eid prayers because the month of Ramadan is over, the month of Shawwal has arrived.”
