There is a general consensus that sheikh Abdullahi was extremely pious and God fearing and had very strong, deep and unwavering faith, His source of leadership and political thought was armed with faith and with submission to the will of Allah, this is also his source of strength, he tried to model the whole of his life on the teaching of Islam. He had the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) as a physical example to emulate.
He direct his attention to the acquisition of learning, whatever is learnt must be put into practice, he was a great scholar of Tafsir, Hadith and figh, having to his credit two Tafsirs; Diya’al Taswil and Kifayat Du’afa.
The sheikh has gone far and wide, nook and crannie of west Africa in joining his brother to preach the religion of islam apart from these he engaged in teaching and writing.

To check that he ruled that a ruler must make himself easily accessible every day so that he would hear complaints, if any, from the strong and the weak members of the community against oppression or injustices from his officials.He also saw tyranny oppression and injustice as some of the basic things which distinguish mulk(Kingship) from Khilāfah (Caliphate).
