My experience as an Igbo Muslim in the South-East has been wonderful. The people have been very accommodating, depending on how you handle yourself before them. This is because Muslims have been taught how to relate with non-Muslims. If you are going by the principle of the Quran and Hadith of the prophet by exhibiting this to your people, you will have a wonderful experience.Some people have found it interesting that an Igbo man emerged as the Chief Imam, considering that most southeasterners are not Muslims…

As the prophet of Islam has laid the foundation upon which an Iman should be chosen, that procedure was followed and it was amicably resolved.

Were you born into Islam or did you convert to Islam?

I was born a Muslim. My father, the late Alhaji Yusuf Njoku, from Ahiazu Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State was a Muslim. My people accepted me fully as a Muslim. Even one of my brothers, a Catholic reverend father, called me and showed so much love to me as a believer of the Muslim doctrine and traditions. Also, my kinsmen have been calling me and congratulating me. They have also made me feel more at home.
