Know Islam, Know Paradise

ONCE UPON A TIME By Ummu Ubaidah Penword

One time you think you are young and life is larger, until one day you realize fifteen years have gone behind you. Once upon a time was I under the big bright Moon, eyes closed with a swift intake of breath. Once upon a time was I completely oblivious of what the world is all…

SHE IS BETTER THAN HER By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

He has a wife, but behaves like a spouse-less oaf. He has got a radiant, elegant, exquisite woman for a queen, but he is such an ungrateful galoot. He is usually quick to mesmerise his wife with “I love you”, but that doesn’t go beyond the purview of his tongue. It’s not from the heart.…

WHEN PREACHING CONTRADICTS BEHAVIOUR, IT IS CALLED HYPOCRISY By Sanusi Olawale Ibn Abdulwasii

It was mandatory on us to replace a teaching staff who left to pursue his advancement in academia. Adverts were placed, and subsequently the date for the interview was fixed. Among the interviewee was a young, confident and calm man. Having finished his written and micro-teaching rounds, he was therefore brought to face the three-men’s…

MUSLIMS IN DEMOCRACY (5) By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

The oppression Muslims are subjected to by the whimsical, quaint figures on whose shoulders the affairs of the country (at federal, state and local levels) rests is indisputably a reason to consider participating in the democratic system: tribulations on hijab women at hospitals, oppression of female Muslim students at schools etc. But there is a…

TRULY YOU BELIEVE, THEN STOP LYING

Yes! How horrible it is for people to find out that you are lying to them? Lies repel people from you and affect your friendships. It makes people feel that you can never again be trusted. If someone you have lied to falls into a problem, he would never complain to you, and even if…

MUSLIMS IN DEMOCRACY (4) By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

Muslims in democracies are at the crossroads – to join the political train or to leave it piloted as anyhow desired by the kuffaar. Nigeria is a referenceable case study in this regard. To this, two scholarly opinions emerged. If democracy is kufr as opined by consensus of the ‘ulamaa, then participating in its process…

MUSLIMS IN DEMOCRACY (3) By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

In a democratic system, people opt to be leaders via partisanship or individual candidacy. The former, however, is preponderant across the globe, including the United States – the origin of the governmental system. Competent or not, all that matters is the interest of the party, and the anointed candidates foisted on the masses. Whereas Islamically,…

MUSLIMS IN DEMOCRACY (2) By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

Voting is an integral, immanent part of democracy. People under certain age brackets (18 upwards, for instance, as applicable in Nigeria) decide with their thumbs who the next leader will be. Everyone (responsible/irresponsible, truthful/untruthful, knowledgeable/not knowledgeable etc.) within the specified age(s) reserves the franchise to determine who gets the leadership baton. This is another area…

MUSLIMS IN DEMOCRACY (1) By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

All definitions of democracy (at least the ones research has exposed me to) have one thing in common – the people. That laws are made by the people, and where there is disparity, the opinion of majority (of the people) will reign supreme; hence the mantra: “…government of the people, for the people, by the…
