General Board / Islam! when does it becomes for hausas only?
« on: May 30, 2004, 05:44:06 PM »
:oops: Prehaps, you may be wondering why this question. Well, i was away during the recent crises in kano. Actually, i was in Zaria where i school but Kano has always been a place i called home no matter where i travelled to. But after the crisis, it has become a different place totally. why? i'll come to that later.
 Islam is known all over the world as religios of PEACE because i grew up known that i've to love my neighbours as i love myself no matter whatever religious or tribes he/she belongs to.In the case of this crisis, it was different because many muslims has been killed one way or the other. Not because they don't know what Islam is or was but because the so called rioters do not even know what Islam is all about or their so called leaders do not educate them on what Islam is all about and what Allah said about killing a helpless, armless, children or women.
 However, i came back to kano after the recent crisis and i saw people i've grown up known has been killed and their properities has been burnt and so on. Most were muslims but not Hausas. And has contributed one way or the other in promoting Islam. Most has been forced to recite different suras from the holy Qu'ran which the rioters do not even know how to recite on a good condition but one had been force to recite under tension, under a heavy pressure, under different types of weapon and still after managing to recite Al-Falthah or any other suras, has sill been KILLEd then what do you called this............JAHAD? No, this is MURDER!
  Besides, it could have been declared that it was not a religious fight but a tribal fight. So that, everybody would be ready next time, because i'll not die without fighting back, Insh allah.And this where above question comes in.............................

Member Poetry / MY LOVE STORIES!!!
« on: December 31, 2003, 05:30:39 PM »
Dear ! ::)
      So many times I thought life is so unfair. I know there are reasons why we can't be together. Reasons that God only knows, but this will not be the reason for me to forget you. You really know how much I love you and care for you but there is nothing I can do more. Even though we're apart, this will not be the end of our commitment. You are the best thing that ever happened in my whole, entire, damn life.

Just always remember that I really treasure your love and cares for me. I really love you so.

It's been years since the last time I saw your face. I had seen so many moons and sunsets but still no trace of your smile. My heart longed for you as the flowers longed for the rain. What have you been doing now? I hope you still remember the way I called your name back then. There are so many things that I can't forget about you. The way you comb your hair in the beautiful daylight, the way you speak, the way you swear, the way you walk and from this I must say ... I love everything about you. I wish I could be there where you are right now. To hold you and tell the very secret that my soul kept inside up to now - that I love you. This is my purpose in life ... to protect you and give all the very best for you. As I write this letter, I can almost feel you beside me.

Last night, in my dreams, I saw your face. You are so beautiful. You were standing at the beach and the wind was blowing through your hair. Your face is a vision I think I could never find in anyone else. Then I started to reach you but as soon as I'm getting nearer to you ... You were fading away and I couldn't do anything about it ... I started to bow my head and began crying but then I heard your voice calling out to me ... As you were fading away, I find myself remembering everything about those beautiful moments ... moments with you.

I always dream of you this way ... And as the days passes by, my love for you will never go, it grows stronger and deeper in the depths of my heart. Please don't ask me why do still long for you ... for there's no one else but you that this heart of mine would love forever. My heart will always belong to you and all my love I send to you.

You are my heart, you are my life, you are my smile, you are my world... and you are my love.

My precious friend, I recall the chilling silent black darkness that surrounded me every moment when you were not around. It has been more then 10 months since you made the split, your second decision that was to change your world. It certainly changed mine. For ten months I have stood mummy-like in the centre of a spiral of questions that bounced back off the stars to return unanswered, just the same questions ringing ever louder in my ears. It is a strange sensation.

The way those questions take the rainbow splashes of color which you, my love, my best friend, splashed with the freedom of a child on the canvas of my life, and blend them with dizzying speed into each other. So I stand at the centre of something quite terrifying, yet strangely beautiful. Every so often there is peace there as one of those magnificent colors, the hue of another beautiful memory, washes over and through me and I smile through my tears.

Can I go on? If every pair of eyes capable of reading was to read these words, would it make a difference? Will they help to silence those unanswered questions, those things I'll wish forever that I'd said to you rather than "I have to go, good-bye"? Will they wrap them up tightly for me in a box, nail it shut with a million nails and throw them, with the force of the whole earth, out beyond the stars never to bounce back and deafen me again?

No. My canvas will always have, as a backdrop, that hauntingly beautiful spiral of color. What is it I want to say ...? I am sorry. I am sorry that I was young and selfish and insensitive and careless. I am sorry that by your action, you became my teacher - the teacher of so many painful lessons, when I'd much rather you'd stayed my lover. Actually, that is what I really want to say to you. I love you. I have hurt, and in my aching condition of guilt and self-loathing, I have hurt other people. It is to them that I owe an apology. But this is my love letter to you.

Sometimes I wish that I never knew you. Like a child allowed chocolate just once, then never again, I've struggled to find satisfaction in a world of unshared pleasures. Yes, I have shared many things with many people - but my soul has always ached for you. I remember how strangely you were acting in our last week together. So strangely that I even asked to myself, you were thinking of "doing something silly. Strangely though, when you left, I had to stop myself from shouting out and running to you and holding you and telling you the words that choke me still, I love you.

Would it have made a difference if I had? I have become a firm believer that nothing happens by chance. In fact, I have learnt to look for meaning and signs in the world around me all the time now. Do you remember the first time when we went to Barista? It was the sweetest drink I ever had in my whole life. But because of my unknowingly mistakes you disappeared. What a cruel destiny. I wonder how many people realized how deep the water I had landed in was. Perhaps I was drowning. Would I have realized what a precious gift I had been given and treasured it with my life will cross our paths several months later?

"If," ... What a useless word! A ticket to an eternal preoccupation with the past - and with how it could have been. It was the way it was. It is the way it is. And that is that. We make the choices we have to make. Yes, we may look back and realize how wrong or foolish we were to have taken the route we did, but the fact remains we can only make today's choices with today's information, wisdom, and providence. I realize all this now - but heaven alone knows how I have stretched the tape of my mind's eye, rewinding and re-playing those last few conversations, imagining what would have happened if....

Writing to you now - I feel movement through a kaleidoscope of emotions. Sometimes I've the instinct to sink deep into pits of the earth, beyond the damp darkness into the molten heat of the earth's core and there be consumed by hell's flames. It was my fault. I saw the accusations in your eyes whenever I had met you. But even more so, I saw it staring back at me when I looked in the mirror. I had lessons to learn. I would have to get up every morning, even when I had not slept all night and wanted to bury myself beneath the covers and cry and cry every tear that bloated me. I would have to look at the reflection staring back at me and, eventually, I'd have to learn to love it.

No simple task. Only now that I am beginning to see goodness in the eyes reflected in my mirror do I see how deep my guilt and self-hatred has run. Suffice to say that I have not been kind to myself. I have tried to escape in foolish ways. I have avoided my own work and allowed my talents to stagnate. But the arms of God have held me gently, so I have escaped any serious harm, and through it all I have grown.

My sweet, sweet angel, people have told me how selfish I was and how angry you have a right to be. I am not angry with you. Please know this. I am ready for love now, to give and receive it. So please say good-bye. Not to the kaleidoscope of colors, or the memories or the love that will cross forever, but good-bye to the pain and the prison of self-loathing that was my previous life.

Your truly & everlasting friend,

Gee  ???

General Board / ALMAJIRIS ISSUSES!!!

Can'll do something about the issue of Almajiris in our streets?
I don't have anything against the fact that almajiri in my own correct understanding
should be modify into a western education and skills which can be admitted in the
 school whether by individual or govt.
Because it's shameful and very sad to see these children involve in all such of activities
hiding under the roof of learning. i know that it's part of our tradition and religion to
pursuit Islamic knowledge in all ways or means. My argument is that these children are
been expose to dangers and bad conditions. Pls, let us save our northern name and do
something about the almajiri phenomenon. your respone is highlly needed, thanks

General Board / CHOGE!What benefit does it have on a common man ?
« on: December 03, 2003, 06:03:02 PM »
:'( ! I happen to be in nAbuja during this so-called CHOGE and i saw the way our govt spent millions of naira or dallors on this so-called event.And at the same time, pple or rather masses were crying of hung  and poor facilities all over the country.But our govt, pple in national assembly,house of representatives are there ,busy looking for their own interest from this so-called event. Every day, i woke up to see elderly men, who are pensioners on my street, living there and demanding for govt to pay their money cos mitary pension board happened to be on my street.Hence, i'm sad and wept for our dear country!
