Writer's Review

An extensive tour of the museum is very enlightening. The manuscripts of the Jihad leaders are there, so are some of the flags given to many of the ancestors who made Islam so relevant in today’s Nigeria, West Africa and beyond. The museum, with the support of the Sultanate Council, has compiled many publications, and more are forthcoming.
