Islam for Muslims / Re: Muslim Sisters Circle by Candis009(f): 8:38pm
bntY:
*Attempts to rekindle thread*.....
So it turns out i was watchin a wedding video at a friend's house.I couldnt hide my admiration for d groom's demeanour.He was all happy and ecstatic while d bride just maintained her calm and flashed few smiles at interval. Well,it is usually d other way round or equal expression of joy frm d couple, so i pointed out my observation and praised d guy for loving his wife so much......Few days later, my friend and i were discussing and she mentioned dt d dude was having his 2nd marriage. 'Wow! Is d 1st wife dead?'... 'No'. barren?,troublesome?... Of course she didnt hav answer for my barrage of questions.But i think it is an insult on d 1st wife.it.s like d guy chanced on gold having lacked d opportunity to behold even a bronze, by d way he was grinning frm earlobe to earlobe.
So my Q is:
How will you feel if you were d first wife in dis case, presuming things are going well in ur marriage?
2. Do you agree it.s an indirect 'insult'(considering d man's overjoy as if he's been missing somethin all d while) on d 1st wife?

Hmmm.. No comment

Destroying the lives of our innocent girls and turning them to whores! You and your likes better go and marry before HIV and judgement Thunder of God strike you dead!
If u care about young girls too much, why do u marry and sexually abuse them before they are matured? Why do u "care " about young girls so much and still deny them education? Highest infant mortality rate in the world- all because of u. Highest rate of child destitute all because of u. Highest child illiteracy! Highest number of child pregnancy all because of u. Highest rate of girl-child illiteracy.. I know these numbers don't mean anything to you, but u can ask google for assistance.
Religion / Geoffrey Dabibi Numbere: Avatar Of Apostolic Evangelism by sergii(m): 8:35pm
I can claim to have known G D Numbere quite well even though I never physically met him. I am equally certain that I speak for legions because when a man lives with a clear sense of purpose, his influence surmounts the limitations imposed by space and time.
My conversion experience sometime in 1978 was akin to an earthquake whose epicentre was the aggregated godly influences of certain students of Federal Government College Kaduna.
Stephen Bariture Kpuinen was a year my senior but we were both of Niger and later Volta House. I had the privilege of watching his life up-close and it became quite clear to me that becoming an exemplary student in character consistency would require much more than personal resolve.
Kagbarenen Zoranen, Lugbe Biranwin and Barinyima Koate Girigiri were my classmates. The way a white background helps accentuate a black object is how their stellar character and performance made me look every bit the recalcitrant rascal I was.
Then there was Israel Vurebel whose vast and robust grasp of the Bible exposed me constantly as a bumbling, spiritual ignoramus. The fact that he was a junior who wasn’t exceptionally academically endowed made it even worse. Israel it was who assumed that his state of personal holiness was under threat when he first encountered the mathematical concept of “sine” usually abbreviated as “sin!”
This five, all of Ogoni extraction, were already practising Christians before coming to Kaduna. Additionally, they had all been massively influenced by the fiery evangelistic ministry of someone they all fondly called Apostle Numbere. From them, I first became acquainted with Greater Evangelism World Crusade: the ministerial platform that Numbere employed in his pioneering evangelistic initiative in the economically, environmentally and spiritually challenged Niger Delta region. Anyone fairly conversant with the dire conditions of this treacherously endowed enclave will agree it is no place for the lily-livered.
In September 1980, Africa’s most beautiful campus spread its captivating arms to welcome me into its addictively warm embrace. It took only a few weeks for me to discover that this same privilege had been extended, a little over a decade earlier, to the one and only Geoffrey Numbere.
The circumstances around a person’s parturition reveal quite a lot about the person’s pedigree. Ile-Ife is the cradle of Yoruba civilization much the same way the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) has been the divine crucible for firing up and launching many ministries that have effectively impacted the nations.
It was in response to the preaching of Rev Mike Oye that Numbere submitted to the lordship of Jesus. Tutored and mentored by Pa Sidney Granville Elton, he was enabled to robustly assent to a call to ministry that was destined to surpass all imagination. Between the ministries of Mike Oye and S G Elton can be found all the missing ingredients the Church in Nigeria desperately needs to plough herself back to relevance and significance. I have a dossier on the duo based on personal experience and here is what I can state without equivocation about these genuine generals and missionary statesmen: there’s no record of them birthing anything but giants and champions.
Like the true fruit that does not fall far from the tree, Numbere turned out the success he was fitted and destined to be. For over forty fruitful years, he stuck with stubborn tenacity to the focal motto of GEWC: To know Jesus and to make Jesus known. He could well have exclaimed like the inimitable Saint Paul, “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.”
On Wednesday October 15 2014, the curtains fell on the eventful life and ministry of this remarkable gospel gentleman. He takes a deserved seat in the celestial gallery awaiting the very imminent Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
We cannot speak of the mansions and edifices he erected because they were never part of his mandate. For a man who was commanded to make disciples for Jesus, it will be ludicrous attempting to enumerate the millionaires he made. The revelation of his bank account balance will be utterly useless in determining whether he truly fought a good fight.
“And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done.” This scripture activates my longing to be present at that final judgment and I will certainly be looking forward to hearing the citation of an undisputed avatar of apostolic evangelism, Geoffrey Dabibi Numbere as he is admitted to the ranks of persevering overcomers.

That is one event you should not miss for anything.

Politics / OPINION: ABBA MORO Nigeria's Minister Of Interior Should Be Dropped!!! by tomju(m): 8:22pm
Few months ago, we witness the deaths of so many Nigerian youths in the immigration recruitment organised by an agency ABBA MORO supervised! Nothing happened. We all wished R.I.P. to the deceased and that is it.
Few days ago, we heard the ''attempted jail break'' at Kirikiri medium prisons in Lagos,. Were scores of inmates were shot dead! If an inmate ''tries'' to escape, is it not rational to shoot outside the fence? How come they were shot within the prison walls? Right there in the middle of the park, they shot the ''rioters''. So why the riot? Inmates were protesting lack of basic welfare services. Fan, food etc. Why cant the Deputy Comptroller of Prisons, Medium Prisons address the issue? Why call in soldiers and Naval personnel? Why? What happened to the prisons armed squad? These are questions Abba Moro should answer. As Nigerians we deserve to know why any Nigerian is shot, be it a free man, a criminal, a convict, a suspect or an awaiting trial inmate. All should be accounted for. The prisons is for safe custody. Some are still in trial. The guilty ones should be reformed, and rehabilitated and not killed!!! Now, who will answer these questions? This is a death too many. I call on all meaning Nigerian youths, please arise, dont be driven by sentiments. Speak out. Be a voice for the voiceless. Be a voice for the oppressed. Where they cannot speak, please speak for them, let the world know what is going on, tomorrow it could be my brother, my kindred or even me!. We demand explainations from Nigeria's minister of Interior Comrade Abba Moro. Enough is enough. Or we demand his sack for gross incompetence.

'Please honeymu talk to me, tell what have I done to deserve this kind of treatment?' Ezinne Ezeugo knelt beside her husband with both of her palms opened before her.

'Your appointment with the consultant was today, what did he say?' His eyes didn't leave the newsprint his eyes was on.

Despite the fact that for about three minutes, she had been pleading with her husband, willing him to say something, anything but not the silent treatment he had been leashing out on her, the sudden sound of his voice and iciness accompanied with it made her shudder.

'Emmm...I... some foreign doctors also visited and after examination and other routine. They all confirmed me medically okay to conceive.' Tears formed in her eyes. 'I have prayed, you know I have done everything required of me.' She entwined her palms and exhaled as the first set of tears rolled down her cheeks. 'You know I didn't mess up my life, I was a virgin till our wedding night. ' With her knees, she moved close to him and rested her palm on his knees. 'Please honey, I beg you...' Her voice trembled. 'Please don't ever leave me...please. You're my life, if you leave, I will die. I beg of you, please don't leave and marry someone else...' Her voice trailed off as she began to sob.

'What makes you think I want to marry another?' Marcus cast the newsprint aside to give her a scrutinizing look.

She lowered her gaze momentarily and then swallowed hard. 'You haven't said a word to me for over twenty four hours...you haven't touched my meals and... and that's how all begins.'

A smile formed on his lips as he placed a palm beneath his chin. 'Nne, you're a fantastic cook denying myself of your meals with no ideal replacement is not wise. I am disturbed, close to a score years without a child to show for i is... is I don't know what to even say.' He exhaled and ran his finger through his low cut hair with a touch of grey.

Ezinne heaved.

'Ladies try to take advantage of this challenge to make advances but I refuse because when I married you, it was for better and worst. Besides...I... I don't even know if the probability of another lady conceiving for me. I love you too much for all that "trial and error" mess.' She pulled her close and plant a kiss on her forehead.

She exhaled as relief flooded her almost bursting into hysterical laughter.

'Imagine my four year niece dead after being Molested to death by the house boy, my brother had employed and since then, Ngozi had been unable to conceive again. Enough of science and technology, Azubuike and I will be going to see a spiritualist tomorrow.'

The information hit her like a bolt from the blue but she dare not protest.

Literature / Re: The Complete Assassin by kayemjay(m): 8:13pm
Sensei Marcus shot at the first Sensei. The bullet caught him on the neck, splashing blood everywhere. The second sensei was quick to react. He ducked under the table in front of him as Sensei Marcus fired at him. The bullet missed him by whiskers. The second sensei pushed the table down, turning it into a shield. He was unarmed but very skilled in the art of one on one combat. However, his knowledge of martial arts would do absolutely nothing against a gun. He crouched behind the table, hoping and praying for some sort of miracle that would get out of this situation alive. Instinct told him to get up and run.

There was nowhere to run to. It was a medium size room with only one door for entry and exit. Sensei Marcus walked towards him slowly, confidently. He pointed the gun at the sensei and pulled the trigger.




*****************



Detective Samson caught himself. He had been shocked to the marrow at the huge noise the AK 47 had made. He had reacted swiftly, going to ground impulsively and lying flat on his chest. As the gunshots died down, he got up quickly making his way to the room. As he stepped over Hugo and entered the room he saw Steven lying down on a propped bed, deep in sleep. He looked around the room. There was no one else. This must be the package the Sensei had desperately wanted him to extract, he thought to himself. Removing the drip from Steven’s wrist, he carried him on his shoulder and stepped out of the room. He stopped by the door to take out his knife lodged deep inside Hugo’s forehead. He was halfway across the hall when he heard a voice.

“Stop. Don’t move. Drop him.”

The detective froze in his steps. He held Steven but did not drop him.

“I said drop him, Now!” the voice repeated.

Samson felt he could take her. It was a feminine voice. She did not sound so tough but she was at his blind spot. He needed to turn. To get a visual on her. His trained hand could hit a target twenty yards out. He was convinced she had some sort of weapon because her tone was very assertive. He needed to know what kind of weapon it was. As he made to bend and drop Steven on the floor he heard a painful shriek accompanied by a loud thud. He turned instinctively.

Sensei Marcus had disarmed the lady with the gun and was now standing over her. He had one gun in his left hand pointed at her and another in his right pointed at him.

“What are you waiting for? Get out of here!” Sensei Marcus screamed at Samson.

Samson got up and half ran through the hall till he got to the door. His wrist watch was nowhere to be found. He needed the correct time to leave the building. Going back to search for his watch was not an option. Confused, he put Steven gently on the ground by the wall. He needed to act, and fast.




**********



Stella was driving the bike towards Block 14 Mariana Estate when she heard the gunshots.

James heard them too. Immediately, she increased speed and was in front of the house. Throwing caution to the wind, she got off the bike and scaled the wooden fence into the compound. She turned to look at James who stood by the bike, timid as a rabbit.

“Are you coming?” Stella asked

“I don’t think so. I would rather wait for you here, please.”

“Get over here.” Stella barked pointing a gun at him.

He knew not to test her when she was in a feisty mood. She would not kill him, but she would definitely shoot him. He was not ready to find out what spot on his body she would choose as her target so he walked briskly to the fence, opened the pedestrian access and got in. Together, they walked to the front door where they had to key in the access to open the door.

“You are up Braniac.” Stella said nudging James forward.

James got to the door and inspected the access panel. He studied it for a few minutes, and then brought out a device from his knapsack. The device was palm sized and had a panel similar to the one by the door. He fiddled with the device for a while and then eventually four digits showed on the device on his palm.

“1010” James called out.

“Are you sure?” Stella whispered

“It is the default code for the device from factory, just in case there was a need for manual override.” James replied.

He moved closer to the panel by the door and keyed in the code. The LED on the device changed from red to green. Then he turned the knob. He almost screamed at what he saw.

Steven lay by the wall, looking like he was dead. Not too far ahead was his boss crouched by the wall, concentrating on some event happening in front of him. He held himself from screaming. Stella saw Steven too almost at the same time that James did. The first thing she did was to scan the perimeter, making sure there were no more hostiles. She did not care why Steven was there and who had gotten him beaten up. Her utmost concern was to get him out of the place. She motioned to James to get in and get Steven out of the place. James hesitated. The look Stella gave him made him change his mind. James could not handle a gun. If Stella gave the gun to him and decided to take Steven out herself, he would not be able to cover her.
As James groaned under the weight of the Shadow Prime, the detective turned.



***********************



The detective knew that fumbling with the lock would do no good. He might even trigger an alarm and who knows how many more people with automatic rifles that would summon. He decided it was better to go back and pick his wristwatch, that way he would get out, leave this dangerous place and get back to his family. As he thought about his daughter Caroline, he suddenly had renewed zeal and vigor to see the mission through.

Laying Steven down gently, he walked gently going back to the door. As he passed the first door, he heard voices. He quietly crossed to the right hand side if the room, where he could maintain a vantage point and see who was talking. He could see and hear them clearly now.

“Sensei? Why?” Sheila asked.

Sheila was on her back. She had been shot on the leg by Sensei Marcus and was bleeding profusely. Sensei still had a gun pointed at her.

“There is a war brewing my dear Sheila. And as wars go, there are always casualties. You got yourself in the crossfire. I am sorry, but you have to go.”

Sensei Marcus had grown to be fond of Sheila. However, he had gotten to the stage where he would not let anything interrupt his quest to bring down ShadowCorp. As he aimed at Sheila to finish her off, he heard someone groan. The detective heard it too and turned. Sensei Marcus shot Sheila twice on both shoulders, making her bleed more.

“Don’t move.Even though it’s just a flesh wound, the bullets are close to your joints. If you do the bullet will rupture your sockets, causing you to experience excruciating pain. I will be back very soon.” He said and moved forwards to where the sound had come from.

At same time, the detective had taken out his knife and was about aiming at the intruder when he saw that it was James. His surprise knew no bounds.

“James? What on earth are you. . . “ He was saying when Stella entered aiming her gun at him.

“Hello Detective. Thank you but we will take it from here. James, move. Now!”

The detective did not lower his knife, neither did he move. Stella did not move too. They stood facing each other waiting for an opportunity to strike. James was rooted to the spot, too scared to lift a finger let alone carry Steven.

“I see you guys have gotten acquainted.” Sensei Marcus spoke from behind the detective.

Stella saw him. Samson could not turn but felt his presence. James managed to look up at the Sensei. He held two guns but he was not aiming at anybody. His previously hard stone cold face had vanished and he wore a warm, welcoming smile.

“Put the gun down Stella. He is with me. You too, detective.” He ordered.

They obeyed, gradually lowering their weapons.

“Now, you will have to work together. Three of you. Take Steven to his fortress. No one will find you there. I will join you. There have been some leaks in the plan and I have to tie up the loose ends. Make sure nothing happens to him. Samson, your daughter is . . .” Sensei was saying when all of a sudden there was a gunshot.

Sensei Marcus gasped. Blood oozed from his chest. Then there was another shot. The bullet landed straight in the middle of his head. Blood splattered everywhere. He fell to the ground, lifeless. Sheila stood rooted to the spot. She aimed at Stella and pulled the trigger. Nothing happened. There were no more bullets in the gun. Overcoming the initial surprise that gripped her, Stella aimed her gun and fired at Sheila who was trying to run away. The bullet missed her by a few meters. But the detective’s knife didn’t. He measured his aim and launched the knife at Sheila. It caught her on the right shoulder, connecting with the lodged bullet from the Sensei. She yelled in pain as she fell to the ground.

Bleeding seriously, she began to crawl towards the back exit of the building. Stella caught up with her. In anger, she fired all the rounds of her gun into Sheila’s body until she stopped moving. She continued to fire at the lifeless body until the detective stopped her.

“It’s enough. She’s gone.”

Breathing heavily, Stella brought herself together and walked away from Sheila. She went back towards the main exit and did not even take a second look at Sensei Marcus’ body. Something in her had changed. Something had given way in her. James saw it too.

As they exited the building with the detective carrying Steven on his shoulder, Stella in front brandishing the gun like a commando and James behind the two of them, he knew Stella would never be the same again.

Religion / Re: The Midas Touch- A Balanced Approach To Biblical Prosperity - Kenneth Hagin by Candour(m): 7:13pm
Gombs:


Hagin was not against firstfruits, he was against folks ie preachers saying they are priests now and the firstfriuts belongs to them.

Haba we shouldn't start again na!!

What does the below quote from page 136 mean then?


Making a New Testament application of Old Testament technicalities violates every principle of Bible interpretation, especially when there isn't a single New Testament usage of the word "firstfruits" in the context in which it is being preached by some ministers.

The concept of firstfruits is not used in the New Testament in reference to financial giving
. There is not even the vaguest hint of it by any New Testament writer in reference to money or the support of ministers.

"Firstfruits" in the New Testament primarily refers to Jesus Christ. He is the Firstfruits—the first One to be raised from the dead—and represented all those who would follow after him.
Other New Testament uses of "firstfruits" refer to the "firstfruits of the Spirit" in the life of the believer. In other words,
"firstfruits" refers to the initial working of the Spirit in a believer's life—the first evidence of His indwelling us. It refers to those signs of His Presence in us now, as compared to what He will do with us later when we have our glorified bodies.

Another use of the word "firstfruits" is totally figurative. It has to do with the first individuals to be born again in a certain location.
After examining many teachings that have led to misunderstandings and hurtful problems in the Body of Christ, let's look at the Biblical way to prosper.

Pls, first fruits offering (in money or whatever form) as a doctrine for christians has no single basis in scriptures. We've always said it and now Hagin has confirmed it. If you still argue this, i'll be very surprised.

blueberryp:
Hello nairalanders, my bestie called me last night to tell me that her boyfriend of 1yr and some months proposed and she said yes, I should be happy but am not.
The reason is, the guy has been abusive since I can remember. He is a very nice guy tho but he beats her up at the slightest provocation and each time my friend would swear that its over between them but she'll go back to him the very next day once he comes begging and then the cycle would continue again.
I am really worried for her since this is her first relationship and after she told me last night I had a horrible nightmare that her mum called and told me she is dead. My mind has not been at peace since then. What should I do?

Tell her your fears, you owe her that as a friend. After that your conscience will be clear and then it's up to her. She may not appreciate you telling her the truth now but no matter what happened in future she'll know she had warning. God may be using you to warn her so please do your part and tell her .

GOD said he will teach him the wisdom, torah and the gospel. when was the gospel? was it before or after Jesus. and if it after or before, why should anybody teach you what you preached? and as it is clearly written in the quran, it is all with Allah's permission. and the birds refers to a people. the birds are african people. when you hear people say "i'll learn the language of the birds" it means langugaes of the african people. who are the dead people in the world? look around you all over. does it look like the black people are living? if you are smart enough, you will know that the black people of the world not just in africa are dead economically, academically, mentally. those are the death that are refered to. did Jesus of 2000 years ago do all this. NO! Jesus wasn't sent to the whole of the world, he was sent to the white people, and that was their last prophet, they killed him. there is a new Jesus, a Messiah , and Mahdi. for the ressurection of the his children the Black people starting from the americas, the wilderness.

Torahz are the laws before the time of Jesus, that is what we call the old testament in the Bilble. They are the laws and deed before the coming of Jesus.
If Jesus was the white, and Mohammad for the arabs, who is for Nigerians.

It is until you agree that God can do all things that you will surely come to the light #Selah

It seems you have just started watching BBA this year. Big brother will mes up with your head and surprise you at the end, most prices are the to instigate animosity amongst Housemates. Those votes are not audited, so dont just believe what you see all the time, you might be shocked just as like last year. i guess you saw the results between JJ and tayo, Tayo losing out from weak JJ. That was a wake up call,so stop being sentimental and enjoy the show.
wake up call my foot! That ish was expected, we know how you people are so I doubt a lot of us were expecting much there despite all the talk.

It would also do you good to know that JJ isn't weak and if people were voting based on entertainment value and not the sentimental bullshayt you SADCountries instigated, JJ would trump the living and the dead daylights out of that moving trashcan y'all call a rep

And I believe that dude already mentioned that the only thing that can stop Tayo is the politics of the game. The surprise would be if Tayo won and funny enough that would give the show all the credibility it is currently in desperate need of cuz even the biggest Tayo hater on this continent knows Tayo IS the Hotshot, the only worthy contestant this season after the eviction of Lillian and Esther

SMH @ natural leader.


Yes, the papi chulo, and the dominant alpha male figure. But don't fret, you won't be my slave. I hate slavery a la submissiveness. Also, I believe all human beings have to be treated with respect, regardless of race, colour, creed, sex, age etc.. And even a dead clock is always right twice a day - so why I be dismissive of everything you've to say, and make you docile? That's not my style. I'm the original black man. The provider/protector of black women. However, she must maintain/know her natural role - that's non-negotiable. grin

There is a video that is going viral now... And I think you also that is reading can enjoy the content...
From Today's Passenger,Mario Joseph
'While I was working in a muslim moscheet as an Imam, as a parish priest.Once I preaced that Jesus Christ is not God, for me God was only Allah, and I believe Allah never got married,so no sons for Allah. So, I preached there that Jesus is not God.
Then, somebody asked me from who is Jesus ? From the crowd.
Maybe a muslim, but he asked me 'Who is Jesus?'.
I was preaching he is not God but the question was, 'Who is he?'
To know who he is I read the entire quran once again.
114 Chapters 6666 Verses in Quran.
When I read it, the name of Prophet Mohammed I found in quran, 4places, but the name of Jesus I found in 25 Places.
Then, itself I was a little confused
''Why does the Koran give more preference to Jesus?'l and the second thing: I could not see any women's name in Koran: the propet Mohammad's mother's name, or wife's name or children's name, no. In the Koran, there is only there is only one woman name I found. Mariam, the mother of Jesus, no other woman's name.
And in the holy Koran Chapter 3, the name of the chapter itself is 'Mariam' One chapter is ''Mariam''.
So, I was very curious to know about Mariam. The Quran say Mary was born without Original sin, she never commited any sin in her life,
Koran Chapter 50 Verse 23 says that she went to heaven with her physical body. Even the Assumption is written in the holy Koran.
And then about Jesus, when I read 45 to 55 verses, there are 10 points which the Koran makes about Jesus.
1. He is the word of God.
2. He is the spirit of God.
3. He is Jesus christ.

In that same Quran 3:45-55,
1. Jesus created a live bird with mud. when he formed it, he breathed into it, it became a live bird. So, I think he can give life.
2. He cured a man born blind.
3. He cured a man with leprosy.e.t.c
4. He gave life to dead people.
5.Jesus went to heaven.
6. Jesus is still alive and he will come again.
7. He spoke when he was two years old.
When I saw all this things in the koran, So I wanted to know what the quran says about Prophet Mohammad. But I found that did not do anything Jesus do and would not come back again.
So, there is a lot of differences between these two prophets.
So, I believe Jesus is not God but he is a prophet greater than Mohammad.
So one day I went to my teacher, the one who taught me 10 years in Arabic College, and I asked him.
'' Teacher, how did God create the universe?'
He said, 'God created the universe through the word''.
So I asked ' Is the word the Creator or the Creation?''
If my Teacher says he is the creator then the Word, Jesus is the creator.Then, the muslims must become christains.
If my teacher says he is a creation then how did God create the word, I would ask.
Since he cannot say the Word, Jesus, is the creator nor the creation he sent me out of his house angrily.

Interviewer(Cristina Casado): If you see things so clearly why don't all muslim accept this. Why don't they accept christainity
Mario Joseph: They say the word is creation nor the creator and also not God. I told my teacher,'the word, Jesus, is not the creator nor the creation tat is why christain says he is the son of God.
then, he told me if there is a son of God, then there must be a wife of God- that I must show him. For without wife no chance of God having a son. Then, I showed a portion of the koran to him where it is stated that God can
1. See without eyes
2. Talk without tongue
3. Hear without hears.
So God can have a child without a wife.
So, we had a big argument and you know what I did at the end?
I prayed and said
'Allah tell me what to do, your koran says Jesus is alive , Mohammad is no more. You tell me whom should I accept''.
After I prayed, I opened the Koran, I asked only to my Allah.
When I opened Koran, I saw chapter 10 Verse 94.
Which says.
' If you have any doubt in this Koran go and read the bible or ask the people, who read the bible.

Islam for Muslims / Re: Muslim Sisters Circle by Sissie(f): 5:21pm
bntY:
*Attempts to rekindle thread*.....
So it turns out i was watchin a wedding video at a friend's house.I couldnt hide my admiration for d groom's demeanour.He was all happy and ecstatic while d bride just maintained her calm and flashed few smiles at interval. Well,it is usually d other way round or equal expression of joy frm d couple, so i pointed out my observation and praised d guy for loving his wife so much......Few days later, my friend and i were discussing and she mentioned dt d dude was having his 2nd marriage. 'Wow! Is d 1st wife dead?'... 'No'. barren?,troublesome?... Of course she didnt hav answer for my barrage of questions.But i think it is an insult on d 1st wife.it.s like d guy chanced on gold having lacked d opportunity to behold even a bronze, by d way he was grinning frm earlobe to earlobe.
So my Q is:
How will you feel if you were d first wife in dis case, presuming things are going well in ur marriage?
2. Do you agree it.s an indirect 'insult'(considering d man's overjoy as if he's been missing somethin all d while) on d 1st wife?

He may have been all smiles and happy maybe due to his nature, some people are just like that they grin from earlobe to earlobe.
And we do not know his reasons for taking another wife.
