After a stressful day at work,I tuned my television to listen to the night news before my bed time,what I heard is annoying which pissed me off immediately although am kind of used to that type of news.The news is also based on my beloved religion,personally I don’t in any way like engaging in any religious dialogue or argument whatsoever but what I always do is to correct any glaring misconception about my religion.
Islam is derived from the word salam which means peace .The question how would a religion which preaches peace and unity among all be so involved in any act of killing of innocent soul,terrorism makes me sometimes feel apologetic when I was very young. The propaganda against islam as a religion is crystal clear to any open minded individual because I do wonder why is that 80% of the news are based in islam,why is it that when another individual does something bad,he won’t be judged according to his religion but when a muslim does it ,he is done for you hear statement such as “” and the guy na alfa oooo” “and the girl na alhaja ooo”.why is it that when another individual does anything praiseworthy,it is a normal thing but when a muslim achieve the same feat that is when you would hear that they need to re-check everyone script again.
My shed of tears won’t in any way solve this big problem we are facing as a group of people whose image have been tainted. Why should I keep begging people just to prove acceptable to them?,why should I keep saying to those who won’t want to listen that this religion of mine is for peace and doesn’t support any act of terrorism?,why should people keep making bad remarks about me (boko haram,al qaeda ) just because of my little beard?,why would people not stop using the bad and brainwashed muslims to judge the religion of islam?.
The aim of this write up is not to appeal but to ignite our thinking that is at rest.We must know that muslims are also mortals,they are fallible,they are also subsceptible to mistake just like any other human but using the minority mistake to judge the majority is an intellectual sin which your brain won’t forgive you for.Our religion doesn’t in any way support killing of innocent soul under the tenet of jihad,what our religion preaches is love,unity among all for the benefit of all but you need to always keep this in mind.
“Every religion has blacksheeps but using the bad eggs to hastily qualify all those practising the religion is very wrong”
I would leave you with words of malcolm x
” The media is the most powerfull entity on the earth,they have the power to make innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent and that’s the power.Because they control the minds of the masses.”

If reverend marthin luther king was alive at this time as a nigerian he would have said in one of his speech that “I have a dream that one day in aso rock building sweltering with the heat of corruption,nepotism, ineptitudeness would be transformed to an oasis of peace and trust amidst the government and the masses..
The question is that:
How can this dream be achieved?
Who are those to transform this dream to reality?
In what way can this dream be actualised?
The answer is not far fetched because everything directly or indirectly converges on the youth
Youth age is an age of struggle and sacrifies,it is an age of discovery and dreams.This is the age where there is strength,intelligence,zeal to venture into new things.Ibn qayyim termed the youth age as the spring of life,it is the most important for the development of human as a whole
A nigerian youth has the world at his feet,he/she has the ability to make decision without giving a damn about the consequence in the long run, he attributes all his financial problems to the country,he attributes his academic failures to the university education.He never sees anything good in the country,rather he seeks greener pasture at all cost.The love of money has made him forget about the virtues of honesty,trustworthiness but rather it made him more hardened in the heart and extra determined to money at all cost to use latest gadgets and car in town.He knows not that he is suffering from intellectual paralysis,he beleives all what the media says,he base his judgement on any matter on what he think is right not what is right.He can spend hours talking to a girl but when he wants to read for a hour,he dozes off.He think the main and sole reason of him being educated is to have luxury of wealth. Although he beleives in hustle,struggle and he is determined to make it at all cost to the highest level..
Thomas jefferson said the worst day of a man’s life is when he sits down and begin to think about how he can get something for nothing.The nigerian youth wants money without working hard to justify it, he wants to be the best without suffering any setback,the syndrome of wanting something for nothing has lead him to seeking wealth by making other people cry e.g internet gangsters and the keyboard warriors.This desire of wanting something for nothing quickly becomes an addict once a person is led astray by the siren song of free money,no amount would satisfy him no matter how much he gets for himself and others he would constantly want more.He forgot that little but sufficient is better than abundant but alluring.
Nigerian youths nowadays learn to read instead of reading to learn.Albert einstein said “all the years of university education would only make you a learned fellow not an educated fellow”.A learned fellow learns for the sake of it (reading only when there is exam or test) while an educated fellow looks beyond happening in the lecture room,learns with heart and has a goal he wants to achieve. We forgot that without knowledge ,we are almost useless because knowledge is the only criteria to determine who is older among men.So take a giant stride now to read before you are killed with ignorance ,read now to learn what is right there in knowledge lies your right,read now to grasp what is wise there in wisdom lies your rise, read now to speak the truth, there in truth lies your growth
Ideally when the youths in any country suffers from intellectual famine the country is already moribund. But hope can’t be lost by a right thinking youth of a better nigeria.

Obversely without intuitive reasoning,the caption seems so awkward and untrue.some would even say this statement is fatous that it is analogous to saying that being a genius doesn’t and would never depict being a dullard. Well all the aforementioned argument may be correct in a way,The statement sounds more like a conundrum,a paradox which needs indepth analysis and undisputable facts to be proven.
Religion depicts faith ,believe in supernatural power which inturn have effect on our life as a whole, religion to those who are religious instill moral consciousness,intellectual awakening,non-materialistic approach to life.It is meant to serve as a reservoir of peace and unity anywhere it can be felt.It is meant to instill in man the consciousness that we are all one entity with discrete sub-entity(in terms of different race and ethnics).Those who are religious in an utopian state are meant to be seen as good role models,unmaterialistic.They should always practise whatever they teaches.
That has rarely been the case in our beloved country.Religious scholars have clearly amassed the natural weapon of religion into political support for their candidates, religious posts have become political appointment.Religion has been the easiest way to go unpunished after commiting a grevious crime, Clergy men prefer having luxury of wealth to helping their members. I would be correct if I say confidently that Religious has cause more harm than good in our beloved country.
This happens majorly because the empty minded follower are just dogged about their beliefs, All religion preaches peace ,unity and tolerance of one another then how come boko haram, ku klux klan erupted?,why has religious pogrom become so rampant?, why has religion segregation so common than the air we breathe?.We have all turned and twisted religion to suit our selfish desires.The clergy man is at fault for failing to instill discipline amongst his followers, he is at fault for being over materialistic,he is at fault for concealing the truth .The follower which I belong is at fault for wholly failing to understand religion in the right sense,for basing judgement on what he think is not what is, he is at fault for blindly following a religion without thorough research about it,he is at fault for segregating others who are not of is religion as being ungodly,unworthy,untrustworthy.
Everything would have been fine when we all as one tackle the enemy common to all of us,Everything would be fine again when we understand religious in the true sense,Everything would be fine again when our clergy men rise up to their role and say the truth always no matter who it is for or against .In mahatma ghandi tone”be the change you wish to see”

“only an hustler recognise the feeling of an hustler”
The life of hustlers as agreed by many is something obscure,it is the obverse picture of a country economically,it depict what poverty means in the real sense,it expounds freedom to those who ain’t free,it expantiate what struggle and survival really meant.An hustler as defined in the world most trusted dictionary(OXFORD) means the person who is good in dishonest dealing but that isn’t what our hustle meant.
We may be born with a wooden spoon,we may be deprived of good education because of lack of adequate fund by our parent but we are intellectually free,we think well before acting.We may not live in big and highly decorated houses atleast we have shelter.We are mostly seen as very poor,uneducated,indigent coons atleast we do recognise the purpose of life that we live in, Our youth are seen as good for nothing,unemployed touts.Our children may be seen as unfortunate,uncared for lilluputian atleast they ain’t deprived of love by their folks and parent. The rich do address us as very poor but we ain’t so poor like they exaggerate in the media, its just that our wealth is inversely proportional to our needs.
Poverty in the slum doesn’t implies that we are inane,vapid.We recognise our plight and we hope one day it would be history.The bond/love in the slum is much more stronger amd affectionate than the romeo and juliet formulated tale. We may for now be sleeping in filth but every morning we do thank God for seeing us through the night.In our dealing with the rich they thought we are stupid but we are not at all we just choosed to be silent and taciturn. We are being told by the rich that its because we are lazy that why we are still on the street and we say to them “the street is strict only the strong survives it”.
Though money wise we may be fatique but we ain’t so tripped off because we believe little but sufficient is better than abundant but alluring.Though the whole family may live in a room and almost got choked up with heat and body odour Yet the love and affection between the family member is so strong.Though to be candid we are not comfortable with our predicament,the school of our children are crap Yet,they still understand the greatest education that evade the rich which is the reality of life.
The street is our home
IT is where we acquire education without getting certified
IT is where we attend class without any teacher teaching us
IT is our playground
IT is where we derive our philosophy and mentality about life from
IT elucidate life in its essence for us
We shall overcome of uncle sam is our morning devotion song in religious places and truly we shall overcome because hustling is our own blood with no genotype..

Years after the industrial revolution,there have been transcendental change in technological advancement,engineers,designers and perhaps technologist have conceived,formulated,actualised design plans which lead to plenitude of
products which make our life easier.
But one little knowledge still evade us or should i say we fail to realise the greatest design, many designers and engineers over the years have been proclaimed and awarded for their design as the best before another surpasses it. Famous engineer Nikola tesla said “the problem with nowadays engineer is that they think deeply rather than thinking clearly”,we failed to realise that the best design has been and would always be the human body.
The human body is an epitome of a perfect design free of any flaw with precise synthesis ,optimization and evaluation.it is an embodiment of different aspect of engineering ranging from fluid mechanics(vein acting as a pipe to deliver blood to a location/reservoir), thermodynamics(internal,heat energy absorbed by the body), mechanical properties of the body(for a design to be perfect,the material selected must be cost effective,available as regards human body the flesh obeys all just that it is not on bubble chart,it is wear and corrosion resistant), mechatronics aspect of human body( which involve sensitivityof electrical impulses felt with interpretion as a signal,precise movement of parts of the body) ,heart as the core of the body, different muscle serving as a casing to protect some fragile parts of the body e.g cardiac muscle, mechanical linkages joining different parts of the body, the skeleton acting as a model of the human body
The head being an embodiment of all engineering we could ever think of except petroleum/gas engr, it houses the brain box of the body which connects with all other parts to interpret any signal felt either externally or internally, in the aspect of statics the area/volume of revolution of some part of the body can be analysed using the pappus guldinus theorem, Ability of the human body to adapt to any condition is also something noteworthy in contrast to manmade design which are to suit a particular region, the two stroke process of keeping the body active(intake process-feeding and outtake/exhaust process-excretion).
The heart serving as the pump to supply pressure energy to effect the flow of blood in the body,the hair serving many purposes together to make the whole body a little saline(removal of salt in the body through sweat) when well kept by the bearer beautifies him.
The human body design is being fashioned in a way to allow procreation of another design,this is a myth in engineering design because no machine design begots another.It has a good factor of safety which no theory of failure could describe and has a reliability of 100% in manufacturing which needs no improvement since its inception and till his demise…….God is the greatest designer..
