Six a.m on my bed,

I check my phone, click on messages and notifications.

A ping comes in. “hey whatsup with you?” he says.

“Oh, im cool and you.”

“That’s nice,” he says. Doesn’t know the details, but knows im fine.

Your blog has been nominated in two categories you know?

“oh really?, where?”

on nigerian bloggers award.


Each day starts with blogging. More than writing posts, I read, like, comment. reply.

Sometimes, one comment, sometimes back and forth. It takes time for me and them.

I don’t click “like” unless I’ve read the post. And I”d rather go to their website to click. It raises their hits.

I’ll write a poem, post a quote, compose an essay. Then go to my files. find the right shot, upload that.

Not on a daily, trying not to overload my readers with too many posts.

I had no clue how much I’d enjoy a community of creatives. Writers, poets, artists, humorists, explorers of their inner and outer worlds.

Social media? Yes, but not like Facebook and not like Twitter.

Blogging is people taking the time to write or photograph or paint their lives, their loves, their passions.

It’s people finding others who share these lives, loves, passions.

Or, learning about lives different from their own. My own.

It’s richness in a smaller world. A world that will never be the same for me since I started my blog.


Have a Wonderful Wednesday!!!

women in Islam


Asalam alaikumn, waramatu lahi wabarakatu

Been a while, How are my beloved readers doing? I hope insha Allah we are doing exceedingly well.
Been so down of recent and the act of writing has been missing plus i have been working round the clock, trying to beat time and breaking my own record. Alhamdulilah, am still on track, with your non stop prayers and wishes.

During my course of silence and non-blogging, a lot of things crossed path my ever busy mind, which will be revealed in this week’s posts. Please enjoy.

Status of Women in ISLAM

According to the Qur’an, men and women are equal before God; women are not blamed for violating the “forbidden tree,” nor is their suffering in pregnancy and childbirth a punishment for that act.

Islam sees a woman, whether single or married, as an individual in her own right, with the right to own and dispose of her property and earnings. A marital gift is given by the groom to the bride for her own personal use, and she may keep her own family name rather than adopting her husband’s. Roles of men and women are complementary and collaborative. Rights and responsibilities of both sexes are equitable and balanced in their totality.

Both men and women are expected to dress in a way that is simple, modest and dignified; specific traditions of female dress found in some Muslim countries are often the expression of local customs rather than religious principle. Likewise, treatment of women in some areas of the Muslim world sometimes reflects cultural practices which may be inconsistent, if not contrary, to authentic Islamic teaching..

The messenger of God said

“The most perfect in faith amongst believers is he who is best in manner and kindest to his wife.”

Women in Islam

At a time when Islam is faced with hostile media coverage particularly where the status of women in Islam is concerned, it may be quite surprising to learn that the majority of converts to Islam are WOMEN

The Muslim woman was given a role, duties and rights 1400 years ago that most women do not enjoy today, even in the West. These are designed to keep balance in society; what may seem unjust or missing in one place is compensated for or explained in another place.


This information has been written with the objective of briefing you on the true Islamic teaching regarding women laid down by the Quran and prophet Mohammad over 14 centuries ago.

Islam declared women and men equal.

Islam condemned pre-Islamic practices degrading and oppressing women.

The same injunctions and prohibitions of Islam equally apply to both sexes.

Islam gave woman the right of inheritance and the right of individual independent ownership unhampered by father, husband, brother, son or anyone else.

Islam gave women the right to accept or reject a marriage proposal free from pressure, and by mutual agreement to specify in the marriage contract that she has the right to divorce (if she misses that option she has the right to seek court divorce if she deems the marriage to have failed beyond repair).

Islam does not require woman to change her name at marriage.

Islam protects the family and condemns the betrayal of marital infidelity. It recognizes only one type of family: husband and wife united by authentic marriage contract.

Jazakum Allah kairan….. Please share! May Allah Make the rest of this month, easy for us. AMIN!
