5 Types Of Muslims You Always Find During Taraweeh

Salamun alaykum. Hope Ramadan has been great so far? May Almighty Allah accept it as an act of Ibadah.
list of people depending on their approach to the ten rakat Taraweeh during Ramadan;
1. The Ramadan born agains!
These set of people are the reason why mosques gets filled up during Ramadan. They may have probably not been attending any prayers before Ramadan. They say Solat is stressful, but they develop a strange love for Solat and Taraweeh
2. The once a while Muslims
These set of people aways come like NEPA light. If you see them today, don’t expect them tomorrow
3. The Taraweeh late comers
I can actually be put in this group! These people will never attend Ishai, they come to the masjid when the Taraweeh has reached almost the end. They just perform their Ishai and join the last few rakahs of Taraweeh and that’s all!
4. The early leavers!
These are the opposite of the late comers. They come early for the Ishai and leave immediately after, they don’t care about the Taraweeh.
5. The I-don’t-cares!
They don’t come even come to the masjid at all for either taraweeh or ishai.

Ramadan mubaraq

When You Eventually Get That Dream Job

When you eventually get that dream job:

1. Don’t tell the world:

Don’t start broadcasting it “upandan” because you do not know who wants you to rise or who wants your downfall. people enjoy pulling people down in Nigeria. They enjoy to see you sad, lack and beg. Witches, wizards and wicked people everywhere! Ride the success quietly and keep your mouth shut. Tell only your closest and trusted family members and friends.

2. Don’t get involved in office politics:

Don’t join them in office politics. don’t gossip about any of your colleagues or your boss. Don’t join any gossip group. Don’t try to do or show any “eye service” in the presence of your boss. Don’t show your colleagues in any way, that you’re better off. They can play that politics on you, set u up and get you sacked.
Just do your job diligently, mind your own business, be lively, hardworking and work conscientiously.
Don’t over do, respect your colleagues…..including the cleaners and drivers.
Don’t ever under estimate or look down on anyone in lower position.

3. Don’t live extravagantly:

Don’t start living large because you earn well. Buying all sorts of expensive things like flashy cars, expensive cloths and shoes, living in an expensive apartment……especially when you’re still single.
Showing off and “denge posing” upandan!
Dress simple(not expensive) and clean.
Use the company bus instead. But if u must buy a car, then buy a simple car(not expensive)……”so they will not chuk eye on your bodi”

4. Save and Invest:

Cultivate the habit of saving and investing. Open an account that will enable you save for the next 5 years without withdrawing. Invest in real estate.
Buy land “plenty”. It appreciates over time, not like car that depreciates. You would be surprised how much it will cost in the next 5/10 years.
Build houses for lease and rent. Invest in treasury bills. Gone are the days when we invest on shares……I don’t even know what is happening to this aspect of the economy for now, so I won’t advice this.
Invest in agriculture……build a poultry, fish pond, etc

5. Don’t show off or taunt people:

Don’t Brag or taunt anybody with your success.
A TV personality “joy isi bewaji”, once wrote:

“For the black man, it is not just money and success…….it is the delight in humiliating another black man.

A black man doesn’t want to be successful if it will not allow him show off. We can’t comprehend quiet success. It has to be boisterous, vain and condescending to others.

One step from point A to point B, the black man looks around to see who he can taunt with success”.

Now I guess this is where they coined out: “pepper dem gang”!

6. Pay your tithe and be charitable:

Don’t fail to pay your tithe and don’t stop helping people, especially the poor and the less privileged around you.
Help your brothers and sisters in need, practise charity. Give to the poor, help the needy. Though be very careful, because some wicked people can use it diabolically against you!
Watch keenly who you give your money to……..”ki wọn ma lọ fi owo e si inu igba aiye (make dem no go put your money inside diabolic calabash)
Your enemy wee just be surprised how he spends anyhow and how money vanishes! Abracadabra
Infact, I’m still skeptical about being a victim of this but God pass them

7. Finally, live a responsible life.

Get involved in a “healthy” relationship and settle down(get married), have kids. Set up a business for your wife….if she’s not the working class type. Though I will advice you marry someone working, but love should matter more. If she’s not working and you have the means……set up a good business for her.
Don’t go clubbing always. Don’t go drinking, smoking and womanising. Respect your wife, your home and protect the sanctity of your marriage.
I am not against drinking and hanging out with friends once a while, but do it with sense……..the same friends you drink with, will desert you when you fall.
Don’t drink.

6 Reasons Why It Is More Blessed To Give Than To Receive

The most unbelieved beatitude in the Bible is: “It is more blessed to give than receive” (Acts 20:35).

The giver happier than the getter? Surely some mistake? That goes against all our intuitions and instincts. So let me help you to believe it and act upon it by giving you ten reasons why it is more blessed to give than to receive.

1. Giving obeys God’s command

The Old Testament has way more commands about financial giving – who, when, and how much – than the New Testament. Maybe the New Testament writers just assumed that as God had given far more to us in the New Testament – giving Himself to death – that our giving should follow fairly logically and easily. But, just in case we might miss the link, there are clear New Testament commands also (e.g. 1 Corinthians 1:2). As all of God’s commands are given to enhance our lives, obeying this command will increase our happiness.

2. Giving submits to God’s Lordship

Every act of obedience recognizes that there is a higher authority in our lives, that there is a Lord over us who is entitled to honor and respect. Due to our temperament, personality, or circumstances, we may find some commands relatively easy to obey. Our submission is really tested in the areas where our own nature and situation make obedience more difficult. For most of us, money is one of those areas. Our wallet is often the last citadel to fall to God’s rule, and even when it does fall, it gets rebuilt and re-secured again all too quickly.
If only we could remember that Divine Lordship is not a threat; rather it’s the place of greatest safety.

3. Giving exhibits God’s heart

God is THE giver of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). As His image-bearers we are called to copy His giving, to be mini-pictures of His infinitely large heart. The larger our hearts (and the wider our hands), the larger the picture we paint of God’s character. What do people think of God when they think of the way you use your money?

4. Giving illustrates God’s salvation

At the heart of the Gospel is sacrificial self-giving (John 3:16). That’s why when the Apostle Paul wanted to encourage the Corinthians to give more, he pointed them to the person and work of Christ. “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich” (2 Corinthians 2:9). Yes, you abound in faith, love, etc., but “see that you abound in this grace also.” When we give sacrificially, painfully, for the benefit of others, we are faintly and on a small-scale preaching the Gospel message.

5. Giving trusts God’s provision

The biggest deterrent to giving is fear, the fear that if I give away too much I won’t have enough for this or that. When we give sacrificially, above and beyond what is comfortable and easy, we are expressing our faith and trust in God to provide for us and our family. This is not an argument for folly, but for faith. Many Christians have discovered the joy of casting their crumbs of bread upon the waters and multiple loaves returning after many days (Ecclesiastes 11:1). It’s such a joy to see God fulfill His promise of provision when we obey Him.

6. Giving widens God’s smile

The Lord loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 2:7). It delights Him to see His people gladly opening their hearts and hands to provide for the needs of His Church and indeed of all His creatures. Through Paul, God repeatedly commends and praises those who gave of their funds and of themselves to Gospel work (2 Corinthians 8:1). There’s nothing that makes a Christian happier than knowing that she’s made God happy, and happy giving means a happy God.

Man Caught Using His Joystick To Touch The Backside Of Lady On BRT Queue (Video)

A man was caught on camera using his ‘thing’ to touch the backside of a lady while waiting on a BRT queue in Lagos.

The lady who looked aware of what the man was doing, continued moving forward, while the man continued moving closer to her (with his already erected joystick) despite the fact that they were being filmed.

See The Mysterious Sea Creature Which Washed Up On The Coast Of Indonesia Video

In the darkness, Asrul Tuanakota, 37, initially mistook the huge fleshy blob for a stranded boat, according to the Jakarta Globe.

Fishermen in the island’s Iha village are convinced the remains are those of a giant squid while others who have viewed the footage say the stinking mass could also be a decomposing humpback whale.

The bloated 15 metre corpse is believed to have been dead for at least three days by the time it was found.
Close up vision shows its discoloured skin turning the waters a disconcerting red as it disintegrates.

Locals have asked the government to help them remove the remains as the stench is getting worse by the day.
A group of marine scientists have reportedly taken samples of the creature in a bid to identify it.
