On Thursday, Supreme Mufti Ndirangwa told journalists he quit his office due to an endless dispute between Sheikhs in the Kibuli based prayer centre.
Sheikh Siliman Kasule Ndirangwa has explained why he decided to resign from his role as the Supreme Mufti of Kibuli Mosque.
While addressing journalists on Thursday, Sheikh Ndirangwa said he resigned from the office due to endless wrangles between Sheikhs in the Kibuli based prayer centre.
He said many Sheikhs have been at war with him over known and unknown issues.
“I would like to tell you that I am no longer going to serve Islam as leader. I have resigned as the Supreme Mufti of Uganda. I have taken the decision for the good of Islam. I have resigned to keep Islam in peace because I am sure that Islam is bigger than me as an individual,” Ndirangwa said.
Also, he said this will allow a new leader a chance to take on roles he previously held. Ndirangwa however, thanked Allah for granting him the chance to serve as a Muslim leader.
“To maintain peace within the religion, I have decided to step down because I won’t keep on fighting with fellow sheikhs in Islam at all the time. I am sure that there are those who can serve better than me. So let me give them the room to serve Islam and perhaps accomplish what I might have not finished during my reign,” Ndirangwa noted.
He added: “I thank Almighty Allah for giving me a chance to serve the Muslim community and I am glad that I have done my part. I also take this opportunity to thank those who have been working with me, the district Khadhis from different parts of the country.”
Who is Silman Kasule Ndirangwa?
Silman Kasule Ndirangwa came to the limelight in 2015, after he was chosen to become the Supreme Mufti for Kibuli based Muslim faction following the death of Sheikh Zubair Kayongo in 2015.
Ndirangwa first served as the district Kadhi of Kampala for almost five years before assuming the office of the Supreme Mufti.
During his preachings wherever he has gone, Ndirangwa has been known for his desire to promote unity among Muslims also, to preaching critically about ongoing immoralities not only in the Muslim community but the country at large.
