The main thrust of the book is the History of Sultan Bello Mosque and its contribution to the Development of Islamic Education in Northern Nigeria. It highlighted on the origin, establishment and development of Kaduna as the capital city of the then Northern Region of Nigeria. It also highlighted on the diverse people that made up or constituted Kaduna – mainly the Zage – Zagi which were part of the extension of the kingdom of Zazzau in the early period as well as pockets of Gwari settlements, railway workers and with the transfer of the capital to Kaduna, clerks and government officials. This combination of people and their heterogeneous nature needed to be extensively Islamized. Hence, the building of Sultan Bello Mosque contributed tremendously towards that. The building was initiated by the Sardauna of Sokoto and the Premier of the Northern Region, Sir Ahmadu Bello. Sheikh Abubakar Mahmud Gumi, the then Grand Khadi of the Northern Region along with other Sheikhs conducted series of activities in the mosque that involved the people of the town and the entire Northern Region fully. This is because the programmes were fully aired on television and radio stations.
