KNOWLEDGE RULES THE WORLD

Meditating in the Cave of Hira, Prophet Muhammad received the Angel of Allah, Jubril who asked him to read. Muhammad was surprised and did not understand what he was asked to do, for he could neither read nor write - an illiterate. Jubril charged him again to read, he did not until the third time. Without having any fore- knowledge, without attending any school, Muhammad received the light from Allah (SWT) and he began reading. This birthed the first verses of the holy Qur'an (96vs 1-6). The verses unveiled the darkness in Prophet's eyes.

START UPS TO WATCH OUT FOR

The 21st century is ruled by spontaneous changes which need spontaneous adjustments to keep up with it. It is what is described as the law of creative destruction. This is the situation where a carpenter, engineer, banker or any professional routine of executing his/her work could be deconstructed and restructured by an unforeseen innovation. The innovation has not come to destroy anything but has come to improve the way such professions are executed.

Calling For The Smothering Of A Health Assailant In Ambush

Perhaps, it is my sense organs that have always been stubborn or somewhat meddlesome or, probably, it has been the unruly stench that has always unwaveringly branched its way into my nose’s centre for smells. Being an always open gateway — unlike the mythical impregnable Walls of Owu — through which the health is perniciously punctured, my nose has perpetually got the biggest chunk of the malodour’s sickening cake. Even, the treatment which my eyes are accorded may not at all have been less of the nose’s.

Audit Your Tongue

I was listening to a programme on radio when the anchorman threw a question on air for listeners to answer. The question went thus “sweet most and bitter most in flesh.” A man called and answered, saying “The Tongue.” I immediately asked my mother that why is it so? She said, “don't you know that man uses mouth to beautify things as well uses it to deteriorate things with the aid of the tongue. Tongue has helped many people to become reputable personnel and made others become inutile person.

Westoxification: Saving Islam for its Cankerworms

ABSTRACT.
It is like an exchange of baton in a relay race how the Islamic world, who used to be light for others, particularly Europe, have gained comfort in the backseat of irrelevance, while Europe, their former tutee now sit atop them. They not just sit atop them, they also dictate what their trainer-turned-trainee should do and not do. They have succeeded in infecting the world – more of concern here is the Islamic world – morally, economically, politically, culturally, socially, educationally, and all of these done fantastically.

AROISM: A JUSTIFIED HILARITY OR A THREAT TO SOCIAL JUSTICE?

Of the lessons learnt in the blockbuster Bollywood movie, Three Idiots, the fact that school is boring stands out. Raju and his clique were victims of a school system that is root rooted in work, walk and some little knocks. Latter in the story Raju could not stand it. He latter punctuated his life with the full stop of suicide. Well, that is in India where almost everything in terms of amenities are aplenty.

THE CHANGE MANTRA: NIGERIA'S READING HABIT

Why does irony play a devilish act with Nigerians’ reading habit? Have you many a time ever thought of reading but sleepiness overcomes you? You are determined to pass. But, reading is problematic. The guru of your department challenges the lecturer many a time, and you are dumbfounded by the seeming-achievement. Wait, think, sleep, wake but not read! Are you a Nigerian? Yes! It is not your fault that you cannot buy books and read. OK, who should you blame? Africa's culture? Government's non-concern? Lecturer's complexity? Or yourself?

TO OUR CHRISTIAN FRIENDS: WHY NOT ISLAM?

It is surprising how the concept of trinity was put to rest in the article titled ‘to our Muslim friends: why the cross? Perhaps, the writer who was not bold enough to add his name, or better still his pen name in the article, is not a fan of the three gods in one hypothesis. Nonetheless, I will like to applaud him or her for one thing; attesting to the fact that Allah is one just as it is contained in Sura-tul-Ikhlas.

MUSLIM WOMEN IN THE TRAUMA OF TWENTY FIRST CENTURY

Challenges in life is inevitable, some are there to guide you aright, some to empower you for future reasons, while some are just there to test your Iman. Hmm…human being only think of themselves, have you ever think of the pain in which the other creatures are passing through or don’t they? …the lizard, with a bleeding tail, cow with an unhealed scars and many more. They also pass through the agony of child labor wailing, groaning for nobody to take care.

A DIRGE TO MY STOLEN PHONE

Slowly and steadily crept the ruthless rat
Not in the night but broad daylight
To sow a seed of discord in my heart
Robbing me of my hard-earned precious might

I don't know the taste of love.

Neither do I know how it smells.

But I know my love

for the Nigerian campus

is an incense that burns my tongue.
