Again I am asking. Why does it always have to be Igbo names?

News: Sultan urges Muslims to look for the new moon

Ikenga: Misplaced priority. How does new moon affect hunger in the land. Yeye fanatics.
Chinedu: Why is the Sultan always asking his brothers to look for Moon that we see everyday.

Chibueze: The old one was stolen by the APC Government (this particular idiot may have an MSc, but he does not know what new moon is)
Uchenna: You are trying to claim ownership of the moon. They will soon start killing people over moon. Illiteracy and barbarism.

Again, I am asking. Why must comments like these always come from Igbos?
I have called out the excesses of my Northern brothers when need be, I am not afraid to also call out the excesses of those from the East. Why must such comments always come from Igbos?

The distinction here is this. The Northerners who go extreme go extreme about their affairs.
Not about the affairs of others. If Father Mbaka says Christians should do something you will most likely not find a Northerner or a Muslim on the comment section. But on issues exclusive to Islam and Muslims you will see Igbos and Christians everywhere making derogatory comments
When will this madness end🤷‍♂️.

Eseogbena al-Faruq ohwojeheri.

The Best Kayan Mata

Last week, I was requested to intervene in a marital brouhaha gone awry. The couple are relatively young and their marriage is still very fresh - just about three months old. I met the couple separately, and also talked to some of their closest associates
who are well acquainted with the issue. The outcome of my investigation is that their case is as simple as it is complicated. Unfortunately, not only were the couple too naive in the way that they handled their differences, their case, in fact,
is a classical example of the proverbial “too many cooks spoil the broth.”

Some of the issues revolve around personal hygiene, lack of discipline and home training, lack of culinary skills, stinginess, wickedness, bad communication strategy, sexual exploitation, et cetera.

Dear sisters who didn't get married yet and afraid of what people may say about her.
Don't worry. Marriage is Rizq from Allah and He will surely grant it to when He wills it and not when you want it.
Don’t care of what people may say about you, remember that Maryam 'alaiha as-salam not got married and she is the only woman who has a whole Surah with her name.
So if not having a husband is a defect, she wouldn't have been mentioned in Qur’an.
Not getting married is not a flaw or a defect but not maintaining chastity is.

The real defect is that a woman doesn't preserve her purity and chastity.

Be patient and be sure that Allah will reward you greatly for your patience at the end this Dunya is not about men or

Ladieswhy??? Why this kind of wickedness to a poor innocent baby, if you don't want the baby, kindly take the baby to an orphanage!

🚫Stop this wickedness.
My Beloved Sister in Islam, if unfortunately you were to abort your unborn child for any reason whatsoever, we assure you in the name of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala that on the Day of Judgment the Lord Most High will put life back into that innocent murdered soul and
you will have to present an answer to the Lord All-Knowing for what crime was it killed!!!
Fear Allah and abstain from this most heinous of sins. Keep your full trust and faith in Allah and remain constant in your supplications towards Him to have mercy on you and your child,

While in a public transport today, a woman on my row started begging people for financial assistance.

The man sitting directly in front of me dug hand in his wallet and gave her N500, then others followed, she eventually got over a thousand naira within that short period.
Not long after that, the same man that gave this woman N500 then wanted to buy a bottled water, and the hawker had to run to catch up with us because the man wanted to give him N100 and he had to collect his N50 change first before handing him the N100.
The scenario touched me!
Immediately, I requested for a bottle too and gave the guy 200. A woman beside me shouted...Ahh, let him give you your change first before giving him money😳💁🏻!!

She looked at me as if I'm a "mutula", a new person in Lagos wey dem never show😀.

When I was a kid, my Mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my Mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits
in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed!

All my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my Mom and ask me how my day was at school. I don't remember what I told him that night, ....
but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that ugly burned biscuit. He ate every bite of that thing...never made a face nor uttered a word about it!

When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my Mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits.

Reminder to my sisters!

You are all beautiful and perfect and enough. Don't let anyone ever make you feel otherwise.
When someone tells you, you would look more beautiful with blue eyes or long hair or if you lose 8kgs or..
if you take care of your skin then please realise they aren't complimenting you, they are insulting you and concentrating on the things "they think" you lack according to their "limited understanding of beauty". Don't laugh away such backhanded remarks.
Be brave and confident enough to say I think I am pretty perfect and awesome the way Allah made me.
And so are you the Creator.

Show them to not make such comments about you while also lifting their morale and confidence by complimenting them.
