South Sudan, Colombia, Ukraine,Honduras, Nicaragua are all Muslim nations? Was it not Christians that invaded Afghanistan and Iraq? You Christians have no shame, for the Brits, this is the 3rd time they're invading Afghanistan in the last 200 years. Leave muslim lands alone Yoruba christian
You are daft with this your useless explanation. it obvious you know little or nothing about global trends and event you just want to be relevant by spewing trash. Go back and do your research very well on these nations you have mentioned

we may nt arrive our expected destination grin as a nation the way we are going. jan 1 aint a xtian holiday bt 4all beliefs

Abeg which destination? Does Nigeria have one? We're just Perambulating aimlessly.

If we had a goal/destination, we might actually get there someday, albeit slowly.

We're too diverse, too divided and in too much disagreement to even have a common goal. We're pulling in different directions along ethnic, religious and vested self-interests lines.

If you think I am too pessimistic, I will tell you that growing up, we never heard anyone use religiously derogatory words to describe Muslims. And this was in a majority Christian area. We never felt any slight angst or suspicion seeing Muslims. Nor did we see or hear Muslims do same towards us in anyway. Hardly anybody would know we were not celebrating Sallah ourselves as all made merriment irrespective of religion. Some Christians even slaughtered rams or goats in solidarity then. Seems like another life now.

If we had a loose Federal structure with much ambit for self-determination, various groups can decide to look West, Middle East or anywhere else for inspiration. So Thursday can even become the new Friday in core North if they so wish. That way there will be no need for constant complain of marginalization.

But it appears the Federal Govt's grip on oil wells and money won't allow us take any decisions that will ensure realization of regional aspirations.

If Solomon had 1,000 women at his service,how many women will he sleep with in one night?

Why did Solomon have many wives?
Wives and concubines. According to the biblical account, Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines. The wives were described as foreign princesses, including Pharaoh's daughter and women of Moab, Ammon, Edom, Sidon and of the Hittites.

What nonsense!

I am a Muslim and I don't support this. Did the Prophet set aside a holiday for the new year? In Islam, there are only 2 holidays and they are the two Eids. Even the Prophet's birthday presently being declared holiday should be scrapped.

Once again, what nonsense!

such thinking can only come from Nigeria Muslims.. highly backward thinking people.
all other Muslim countries that even practice muslim to the core do not bring all this stupid thinking.
look at dubai.. they use their brain to think out good things. 9ja muslim na all round stupid things them dey think.
so because the person wey bring calendar na christain so muslim self go get their own calender..
January 1st is now a christain thing to Nigeria Muslims.. cmmmcheww!

IbnAbdullah1:


Abraham(peace be upon him) had three wives Sarah, Hagar and Keturah and he was busy 'singing' songs of praise for them. that was how he had his children Ishmael and Isaac and the rest.

The problem with Christains is that you want to judge us by your own standards and tell us how to live our lives.
When you society is rife with all sorts of immoralities and sleazy acts.
Show me a Christian dominated place I will show you crime rates,prostitution ,fraud and the likes yet, you want to dictate to us how to lead how lives?
come on! Are you all this dull?

Now, tell what is wrong in having sex with one's wife?
Just tell me how?
Is sex inherently forbidden?
if so, why would God create an organ that has no function except to excrete urine?
You well so?
Why would God put us through having a desire for the opposite sex without fulfilling that desire in a lawful way.

SEX is not abhorred,it is meant to be enjoyed.
His will will be done in heaven just has it is on earth.
and sex is surely part of that aspect.


Look I'm not going to argue the point you make about sex because frankly sex is meant to be enjoyed although one man marrying multiple women to have sex but not allowing the other way around is just pure horniness. The prophet did it to cement alliances but muslims today do it just for lust. They aren't marrying widows and orphans but are marrying young virgins

However when you say that "show me any christian dominated place and I'll show you crime, prostitution etc. You're wrong!" There's a lot of crime in some muslim countries too like Syria, libya, egypt etc. The gulf countries have a lot of prostitution even more than the west as does Egypt and some other islamic countries. This has nothing to do with religion and relates to economics. You can also look at christian countries and see that most are far more developed than islamic countries with more human rights, better treatment of people etc. This is not because of religion but because of peoples hard work.

Muslims don't call you infidels, the reverse is the case. Christians were the ones who called Muslims, Christians from other sects and Jews infidels. We call you Kuffar which literally means "one who covers". The night covers the day, so don't erroneously assume something, you people started calling us infidels. And Kuffar doesn't mean infidel
You crack me up. Haba my friend. Can you swear to this allegation on the Quran. So its the christians who call you infidels. I guess its christians who also go about burning churches and slaughtering people on the streets

nextstep:








These significant dates are a result of the interplay between institution/civil administration, traditional culture based on nature/planting/harvesting/seasons, as well as work by the Church.

January 1 gets its origins from the Romans/civil administration.

December 25th has its origins in a pagan celebration of the Sun (just after the Winter solstice and the days are now getting longer, and makes people hopeful for a brighter Spring, after three months of short, cold, dark Winter days). There was already a festival way before the Church adopted it for the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

If Islam had been more dominant (it's about 700+ years younger) - and had continued to pursue science and maths instead of becoming ultra-conservative - it might have determined the dates and when the celebrations happened around the world. After all we owe a lot of things to the medieval Islamic world - geometry, trigonometry, algebra, the numeric system, logic, and so much more. It just so happened that Islam entered it's own Dark Ages just as the Christian West was exiting its own, and didn't go on to provide the standard for commerce, shipping, navigation, or modern science. Perhaps around the year 2400, the Islamic ultra-conservatism will exit the Dark age.


Some other historians argue that the Islamic world did not invent algebra and trignometry as alleged. Rather these were the inventions of the non muslims who were conquered by the muslims and they took credit for it.

Muslims invaded christian lands too. Syria used to be christian as was Egypt. Turkey was actually Eastern Rome. Iran was Zoroastrian and the natives were slaughtered and forced to convert in a brutal campaign. Pakistan was carved from India and Central Asia converted from Buddhism and Taoism. If muslims invaded non muslim lands when they had the power and seized it then it's fair for others to now invade muslim lands no? A

VVF is not as a result of a young girls getting married it is a as a result of lack of health facilities to take care of such healthy complications.
There are states in the USA presently were young girls as old as 13 years get married and have children successfully without problems.

You can accuse the North of this, but not so in Saudi Arabia where people still get married early.
please, look for another lie.

As old as 13? What are u saying, 13 is very very young. Would u sleep with a 13 years old??
