Islam / Is Islam a Curse to Nigerians?...
Last post by Muhsin - March 13, 2017, 06:20:20 PM
"Nigeria, Africa's most populous country, has more Muslims than any Arab country does." - Lewis, 2006:563.

No doubt, we discuss, argue and fight over the religion more than any other thing. What is, and/or should be, a blessing is turning into a curse. It's sad, unfortunate and despairing.

Talk about Islam, and everyone is a Sheikh. Thanks but no thanks to Google and other similar technology - enabled platforms where every John Doe can just tap/click and voila, the verse and/or the Hadith appears. And he subsequently interprets it the way that suits him.

I am literally speaking tired of the intra religious squabbles we do every so often. I really am. It's largely futile, even puerile. Nowadays, the youths no longer attend Islamic schools, Tafseer and other forums where Islamic exegesis is taught. It's now Facebook, WhatsApp and so on. Hmm.

Islam (or is it the so-called Muslim world?) faces a lot of challenges. We really have to be very careful. Not everything we read online is worth savouring. Many stuffs do not deserve our attention, or deliberation. Go to real scholars. May Allah continue to protect His religion, amin.

General Board / Ife Massacre II
Last post by Muhsin - March 13, 2017, 06:17:08 PM
Sometime ago, a video of a Brazilian girl being attacked and torched by a mob went viral. I mistakenly watched it. I profusely regretted doing that, for it kept on hunting me like a scene from a horror film in my childhood.

Again, when the South African xenophobic attacks on Nigerians resurged last month, another video of a guy being shot several times by some attackers went viral. In my curiosity to verify the news of the attacks, I grudgingly watched it. Wallahi the incident still startles me.

And now, the #IfeMassacre occurred. I wrote about the bloodshed on Facebook and Twitter, and talked about it with many people for it's disappointing, disheartening and despairing. Yet I did not watch the video until much later - yesterday, I think. I couldn't help it, for I felt the urge to 'witness' what transpired over there, on the people I care much about, and on whose calamity I write and talk. I felt, and still feel, numbed after watching it. I had nightmare over it. The scene of human beings being on fire and chased like worst of animals is so barbaric, unsettling and unimaginable. Their crime is only being Hausawa! Innaalillaahi wa innaa ilaihi raaji'uun!

All said, I have read some stupidest of God's creations asking us what have we said when the so-called Fulani herdsmen killed people in Southern Kaduna. Another quarried me, when I tweeted the President about it, what did the President say about the same Kaduna killings? Can people be that dumber?

Supposed I or the President haven't said anything, and that's wrong; thus, what's wrong in saying something about #IfeMassacre? Wallahi if that video doesn't move anyone who watches it, one should ask oneself about his/her humanity. I am of the opinion that even the perpetrators would feel for their preys if they later watch the clip.

The Brazilian girl and the purported Nigerian in South Africa were not Hausas, or Muslims. They are humans. But what befell them pulled me down, WALLAHI. However, when some unfeeling fellow Nigerians, blacks, probably Muslims find it undoable or difficult to sympathise and empathise with their fellows is simply beyond my comprehension.

RIP, Humanity. RIP, Common Sense. RIP, One Nigeria.

General Board / THE SLOGAN OF CHANGE AND THE N...

THE SLOGAN OF CHANGE AND THE NIGERIAN CONSTITUTION
BY: SALIM I. HASSAN
(FROM: ISLAMOCRACY FOUNDATION)

Believe it or not the president Buhari is not the only failure; the Nigerian constitution is also a failure. The perplexed condition faces Buhari is a God-sign to him. Buhari's failure is another God-sign to the Nigerians. You may ask me why? Buhari's self-esteemed disposition to reform Nigeria before his coming to power had far exceeded his trust in God. Conversely enough, our self-esteemed hope and optimism in Buhari before his coming into power had also far exceeded our trust in Allah.

Although islamically we are strongly commanded to always being stoic and put our trust in Allah we are not deprived of our self-actualisation. As thus, let me go that way to analyse this issue on purely empirical perspective.

By grasping the real world of the Nigerian system and the current situation we are fumbling our way through one can behold the glaring sign portending the continuous failed destiny for Nigeria. Because the system does not work; and in fact it is designed to fail.

I am going to really abdicate from any optimist view about the change we are longing for in Nigeria. Unless the change starts with our uninformed constitution drafted by unintelligent, ignorant and biased leaders the real change and progress will always remain unreachable or even impracticable. Those who drafted the constitution they either knowingly or unknowingly designed it to favour themselves (and the leaders to come) and not the led (followers). To me I can wholeheartedly call for the total destruction of the current constitution. Corruptions, lies, deceptions and favouritism are all sheltered in it.

Nigeria is on the top list countries that are skeptically democratic – a pseudo-democracy nation. Generally, democracy here in Nigeria, one may find it bad, but a little good in certain developed countries. The degree of its positivity or negativity is based on the level of leaders' justice, patriotism and humanitarianism. Basing our argument on this logic, and by looking at western developed countries, we can see that democracy is thriving and auguring well for the people. However, this does not mean that people's rights, freedoms, and wills are not curtailed or violated by the Western governments. But, in Nigeria the situation is always drastically worse.

No matter what a good president you elect or select he cannot change the status quo. If you dare to elect sound and just leaders at all levels that will be better for you. But it seems non-feasible.

What a manner Nigerian constitution! What a manner National assembly! The constitution cannot change itself; meanwhile our National assembly does not even have an iota of interest to bring and effect a just and balance change in it. That would be against their interest as this corrupt constitution legalizes all sorts of formal corruption to favour them unjustly to the extent that it constitutionally legitimizes public funds for them out for nothing. Even the recent tactics of fighting corruption by this regime is an empty war and is destined to fail. We need to change our constitution before we can see things normal in this nation. We need to change any National Assembly that cannot bring change to the constitution.
WHAT A MANNER NIGERIAN CONSTITUTION! IT IS OUR FIRST ACH-ENEMY; AND THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY THE SECOND.
