There is nothing I have hidden from you all. My whole life is on the TL if you read deeply. My names are Abdul Lateef Adesegun Oluwasegun Omotayo Omogbeminija and several others that didn’t make it into the birther. My grand dad was an Imam we own Mosques & give scholarships.
But even with my Islamic Education I grew up to embrace Christianity not as a religion but as an intrinsic walk with the master. My parents were Christians yet the knowledge of Islam was potent. There’s this story my granddad told me & I will share it with you today.
An emperor in the Far East was growing old and knew it was time to choose his successor. Instead of choosing one of his assistants or his children, he decided something different. He called young people in the kingdom together one day.
He said, "It is time for me to step down and choose the next emperor. I have decided to choose one of you."

The kids were shocked! But the emperor continued. "I am going to give each one of you a seed today. One very special seed.
I want you to plant the seed, water it and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from this one seed. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next emperor!"
One boy named Abdul was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly told his mother the story. She helped him get a pot and planting soil, and he planted the seed and watered it carefully.
Every day he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other youths began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.
ABDUL kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew. 3-5weeks went by. Still nothing. By now, others were talking about their plants but Abdul didn't have a plant, and he felt like a FAILURE. Six months went by-still nothing in Abdul's pot. He just knew he had killed his seed.😞
Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing. Abdul didn't say anything to his friends, however. He just kept waiting for his seed to grow.

A year finally went by and all the youths of the kingdom brought their plants to the emperor for inspection.
Abdul told his mother that he wasn't going to take an empty pot. Be honest about what happened, she said. Abdul felt sick to his stomach, but he knew his mother was right. He took his empty pot to the palace. 😢
When Abdul arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other youths. They were beautiful-in all shapes and sizes. Abdul put his empty pot on the floor and many of the other kinds laughed at him. A few felt sorry for him and just said, "Hey nice try."
When the emperor arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted the young people. Abdul just tried to hide in the back. "My, what great plants, trees and flowers you have grown," said the emperor. "Today, one of you will be appointed the next emperor!"
All of a sudden, the emperor spotted Abdul at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered his guards to bring him to the front. Abdul was terrified. "The emperor knows I'm a failure! Maybe he will have me killed!" When Abdul got to the front, the Emperor asked his name.
"My name is Abdul ," he replied. All the kids were laughing & making fun of him. The emperor asked everyone to quiet down. He looked at Abdul, and then announced to the crowd, "Behold your new Emperor! His name is Abdul!" Abdul couldn't believe it. He couldn't even grow his seed.
How could he be the new emperor? Then the emperor said, "One year ago today, I gave everyone here a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds which would not grow.
All of you, except Abdul, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. When you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Abdul was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it.
Therefore, he is the one who will be the new emperor!"

The Prophet taught, "Truthfulness leads to righteousness, and righteousness leads to Paradise. And a man keeps on telling the truth until he becomes a truthful person.
Falsehood leads to Al-Fajur (i.e. wickedness, evil-doing), and Al-Fajur (wickedness) leads to the (Hell) Fire, and a man may keep on telling lies till he is written before Allah, a liar." [Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 8:116]
There are many falsehood peddlers out there using the name of God to enlave people and deploying political powers to hoodwink the masses. Eternal damnation is their portion but don’t be deceived. The Truth will always find a way.
Ká dá apá àpà, kò ní kápà máà nípá láti hùwà àpà, nítorí inú àpà nìwà àpà rẹẹ̀ wà. Even if you restrain a spendthrift, he/she can't but be wasteful still; the wasteful trait is ingrained right in the spendthrift. -We act in a manner consistent with who we really are, deep down.
Your value system determines your life choices so says my Late Grandad the Imam Of Abobi Mosque in Ago Iwoye Of blessed memory. Gbogbo èèyàn oníwà tùtù kọ́ lonínúure. It is not everyone with quiet disposition who is kind-natured. Appearance can be deceptive. Reiterated Mum. 😞
Enjoy the rest of your day and have a great Jumaat.
Just in case they come up with a story tomorrow. Here is the fact. I wasn’t kidding. Document shows the claims aren’t gimmicks. #FullDisclosure #Origins #Birther
