Closer to Jesus, Closer to Moses


Today, 23rd of October is the 10th of Muharram. It is called the day of Ashura. Fasting today wipes away the sins committed in the last one year. This is like a bonanza  I was not to miss.

But the history of this fast dtes back to the jews of madinna who the prophet(S.A.W) found fasting on this day. They told him they fasted because it was the day Musa (Moses) defeated Firaun (Pharau). So he asked Muslims to fast on this day and asked tjat the 9th of Muharram be added to make it different from the practice of the jews.

This further proves that the message of our beloved prophet is monotheism, the same propagated by the prophets before him,including Moses and Jesus and there should not have been conflicts whatsoever if his message was accepted, as it was, from the almighty, Allah.IMG_20151023_093011

Al-Shaafa’i and his companions, Ahmad, Ishaaq and others said: It is mustahabb [recommended] to fast both the ninth and the tenth, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) fasted the tenth and intended to fast the ninth. Based on this, there are different ways of fasting ‘Ashoora’, the least of which is to fast the tenth only, but it is better to fast the ninth as well. The more one fasts in Muharram, the better. (islamqa.info)

The prophet observed the fast on Ashuraa (the 10th of Muharram), and ordered (Muslims) to fast on that day. (Agreed upon Hadith i.e. Bukhari & Muslim).

Narrated by Abi Katada: The prophet was asked about fasting on ‘Ashuraa’ (the 10th of Muharram), he said: “it expiates the previous year (for sins).” (Sahih Muslim)

It was proven from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that the best fasting after Ramadaan is fasting in the month of Muharram. It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “The best fasting after Ramadan is the month of Allah Muharram, and the best prayer after the obligatory prayer is prayer at night.” Narrated by Muslim, 1163.

Letter to my Lost Love


This is one of the best things I wrote ..

The Yoruba Muslim Girl's Blog

Dear S,

I loved you so much. I took you to my heart. I dreamt of you! I painstakingly took care of everything you. Because of you,  I slept late, woke up early, defied the sun, ran in the rain. I saw the unmentionables, touched the unspeakable and felt the unseen. I gave you my time, my emotions, simply all.

But What do you do in return? A goodbye, in the name of time 😦 Our bargain has ended. Even though you didn’t say it, I know that is what you mean. It was only for three months. How time flies!

Now, We are  never to love meet again.

I will forever Cherish the time We spent together. You taught me lessons I hope to never forget. Oh, Surgery one Minute, You leave me to face the uncertainty called medicine 500. I hope to use all you taught me in…

Wow!! I’m back, like the 100th time :D


I am a very spontaneous person..and that’s how I’m back and yes! to blogging.

I have gone through my previous posts. It felt so unreal. I was like, Oh! I did write that, and that too..yeah!!

My need to be here is born out of a longing to write, and write..and I have done quite some of those that I posted on whatsapp and some other platforms that people liked…I am thinking of continuing here. Will make some changes to my previous posts, maybe.

Yes. I’m going to make a few changes, like, have a domain name and talk less about me and probably be a social commentator. It has got to be fun.

It’s the change era in Nigeria anyway and a lot has changed since I last blogged. (in whispers) I am an entirely different person now!! ehn ehn! I finished medical school and I work now. I’m also hmmmmn…

ok..let’s see where this goes and let’s hope I stay blogging.

la la la la laa laaaaaaaaa 😉
