Popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Muyideen Bello, has condemned the clerics who officiated at the housewarming ceremony of crossdresser, Bobrisky.
During the housewarming ceremony of Bobrisky, a video of Muslim clerics praying for him at the ceremony was shared online show Bobrisky dressed as a woman with nail extensions as well as long lashes was seated while the clerics prayed for him.
In an interview with Punch. Sheik Bello said the clergymen were wrong for going to pray for Bobrisky
”I don’t know what to call that – shall we say it is lack of the fear of Allah or lack of the knowledge of right and wrong? I don’t understand what will make an Islamic cleric to be hobnobbing with a man who is claiming to be a woman. No matter what he is doing, be it housewarming, birthday, or whatever celebrations, I don’t know what exactly those clerics intend to gain from such a gathering. Are they seeking fame? Is it for money? Would Bobrisky offer each of them a million naira? I doubt if he can give each of them a million naira.
What would we say took them there? It’s total nonsense. If we ask those clerics to give us references or authorities from the holy Quran to support their action, trust me, they won’t have anything to back up their action. So, Islam does not approve of such.”
Sheik stressed that Islam does not accept transgenders.
Yes, Islam doesn’t accept such; Islam totally prohibits a situation where a man dresses like a woman or a woman dresses like a man; neither does Islam accept transgender. The position of Islam on such issue is that whoever engages in such is regarded as a lunatic, who isn’t in his or her right senses. Islam is clear, it is a complete religion, Islam does not approve of it.
We (men) can’t turn ourselves to women. Will we be able to give birth to children as women do? Is it possible to insert a womb into men? Bobrisky would like to have us believe that he is a woman and he has breasts and buttocks, but are those real breasts and buttocks? Are they not products of surgeries?”
