The ceremony commenced with an opening prayer recited by Sayyid Khidir, followed by a recitation of the Holy Qur’an by one of the students.

Engineer Muhammad S. Shu’aibu, the Registrar delivered a keynote speech during the official opening ceremony of the institute, where he emphasized the purpose behind its establishment.

He stated, “today marks a momentous occasion as we gather to celebrate not only the birth of an educational institution but the genesis of a transformative movement-one that endeavors to reshape the narrative surrounding religion, scholarship, and their impact on our beloved nation and humanity at large.”

Additionally, he stated; “Contrary to this distorted reality, true religion as taught and exemplified by the noble prophet of Islam, as advocates for compassion, tolerance, and mutual respect.

It is within this troubling context that the Khatamul Anbiya project was born – a noble initiative conceived by some well-meaning Nigerians burning with the fervor and desire to contribute positively to nation-building through the attainment of peaceful coexistence by the followers of different religious sects.

The essence of this project lies in the profound idea of imparting the teachings of Islam in all its depth and breadth, with a methodology that emphasizes tolerance, dialogue among civilizations, and mutual respect for alternative views.

He stressed that; “in undertaking this noble venture, the Khatamul Anbiya project extends its hands of friendship and brotherhood to all well-meaning Nigerians.

We therefore, invite you to join us in this noble cause -a journey towards celebrating our individual differences as a source of unity, mutual respect, and a potent instrument for nation-building”.

The registrar asserted that their objective would extend beyond that point; they are striving to establish Khatamul Anbiya University, which will compete with other universities.

“It is crucial to recognize that this institution is not an ultimate and a final destination in its self, but a much broader concept and a dynamic work in progress.

Our vision extends beyond the confines of an institute, but one aspiring to evolve into a full-fledged university of international repute and standard.

This future university that is to be known as Khatamul Anbiya University will be a beacon of religious harmony, consistently producing individuals who embody character and learning in the truest Islamic sense of these words.”

He emphasized the rationale for establishing the Islamic Institute, stating: “The Khatamul Anbiya Institute of Islamic Sciences stands as a testament to our collective commitment to fostering an environment where education transcends barriers, diversity is celebrated, and the true spirit of Islam guides us all towards a harmonious and prosperous society.”
