The Emir of Kano, Lamido Muhammed Sanusi has declared his avowed love to Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
The Emir took to his Instagram handle today to declare that he loves Jesus Christ even though he is a Muslim.
He posted a photo with the caption “Many people are unaware of the fact that one cannot be a Muslim without loving Jesus (Peace be upon him) known in as Arabic Isa (Alayhis Salam).”
The interesting thing is that the could have kept Jesus – not the Jesus who was the Son of God, admittedly, and who was crucified.
The Jesus certainly being referred to here is the Jesus who was a miracle worker, who conversed regularly with God, who was born of a virgin and who ascended into heaven.
Jesus is referred to quite often in the Koran, six times under the title “Messiah”.
Muslims does not believe Jesus is the Son of God. They don’t believe He died, was crucified, buried and resurrected.
They believe was one of the prophets who will still return again.
Emir Sanusi’s love for Jesus of Nazareth ends where the Koran ends it –He is the messiah but not the Son of God.
Comments from people showed support for his declaration and the picture has over 800 likes after an hour it was posted.
