This paper examines the relevance of Qur’anic Aqidah narratives as effective tools in evolving prototypical contemporary Muslims in North-West Nigeria. Thus, the relevance, lessons and reflections in these narratives are ought to be imbibed or embraced by the Muslims in the study area. The facts that these Aqidah narratives are not provided for fun and pleasure then should be studied for guidance. The Glorious Qur’an exhorted Muslims of all ranks to learn the narratives of the past nations who are punished for their evils and those who are guided by Allah when they accepted His message. Perhaps, these narratives are geared towards appreciating virtues for emulation and identifying vices for avoidance; for they are centered on Islamic morals and spiritual uplift of Muslim societies.
