LEARNING FROM HISTORY (3): WHY PROPHET MUSA SERVED FOR EIGHT YEARS TO MARRY A WOMAN By Lan Rey Hassan

WHY PROPHET MUSA SERVED FOR EIGHT YEARS TO MARRY A WOMAN For many of us, if eight years were to be scraped off our current ages, we would be batting our eyelids into slumber, with Ugo.C.Ugo’s Common Entrance examination recipe on our table. Now, beyond certainty, you can relate to that. That seems a very…

HIJAB HAS TRULY COME TO STAY IN LAGOS SCHOOLS By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

  I was approached in anger. The complainer was sad. It was conspicuously written in his physiognomy. His voice trembled like some quake of the earth. He boiled. “What’s the matter”? I quizzed. “Why would a principal and the teachers disallow female muslim students the use of Hijab after they had been enfranchized by government?…

ZINAA: GORY BUT GLORIFIED By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

  The society is sunk in the ill. The home is drowned in its pit. Almost all have been squeezed by the heat. Zinaa is unfortunately the wind that has ravaged the carriage against its package. Men dwell in the den, as well as women. Fathers flock the hotels and rock the minors young enough…

INTER-RELIGIOUS MARRIAGE; THREAT OR SUSTENTATION TO THE ISLAMIC WORLD By Oyesanya Sofiyyah

  The world has become very fast-paced, with growing numbers of internet users and connections here and there, and gradually I’m getting to understand why Allah placed limits on the relationship between members of opposite sex. I was part of the majority that used to wonder why so many rules guided my relationship with the…

JUSTICE IS CLOSE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS; A REJOINDER TO DR. OLUFUNKE ADEGOKE (DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY, UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN) By Dr. Ayobami Raheem

In contributing to the ongoing narrative about Hijab controversy that is rocking International School, University of Ibadan, Ibadan (ISI), one Dr Olufunke Adegoke of Department of Sociology, University of Ibadan threw caution and logic into the wind and stirred up hornet’s nest with her technically deficient, highly provocative and unscholastic submission. And one wonders how…

UNDER THE HIJAB? By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

  There is no one she cannot talk down. She is lousy – orally untidy, verbously shameless and attitudinally unbefitting. She does not only abuse, she rains curses on whoever crosses her path – unfortunately under the hijab. She is no respecter of anyone, not even her parents. She coughs out whatever shaytan whispers into…

HIJAB, FREEDOM AND OBJECTIFYING WOMEN By Lan Rey Hassan

  Just outside the gate of the Tecno office in Computer Village Ikeja, tweaking, twirling, swirling their waists lewdly, flaunting their breasts in the name of dancing were three ladies who had to have been- if not teenagers, in their early twenties. Of course, there was a boy too with them, but lo and behold,…

HATE FOR HIJAB By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

  The Hijaabi – in her NYSC apparel – was seen shedding tears as she made steps out of the VP’s office. Some members of staff of the school who could not hold back their curiosity walked up to her in empathy. “Salaamu ‘alaykum”, they greeted looking at her pitifully. “Wa alayum salaam”, greeting returned…

DECEMBER 19TH 2009 By Sanni Kay. Yusuf

  Our conjugal merger was at its embryonic stage. I deemed it worthy – one day – to visit my new queen and to say hi to the foetus in her womb. Then she was a semi-finalist in the university. I was told that a prominent sister would get inducted into the fold of the…
