And let there be [arising] from you a nation inviting to [all that is] good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be the successful. 3:104

FATHER IN HEAVEN

F

A lie to my daughter I have always had many things to say, but not this time I have had answers to all her questions, but today I didn’t I stood numb in front of my daughter, doing as much as I could to avoid her sight Her question echoing through every fabric of my soul And so I walked away from her without a word Resigning to my room in utter destitute First my lips fail me, now my eyes...

WHY ARE THERE FEW MUSLIMS IN MUSEVENI’S GOVERNMENT? ANALYSING SHEIKH MUZATA’S APPEAL FOR MORE MUSLIM MINISTERS

W

In many of his addresses, the self-proclaimed “lion of the Ummah”, Sheikh Nuh Muzaata has made it a point to hit at the Museveni government over the lack of Muslim representation in the cabinet. At a graduation party in January that I attended, he stated that Muslims in Uganda have past the level of ignorance that was so much attributed to them in the past; and he believed that now we were ready...

Dreams of Freedom

D

“Freedom”
My voice husky and pale
My fists fletched and raised
My legs battered and weak.
I cry for
“Freedom”
The sky’s dark
Dry. Sad
Loud, mourning my youth
In a thunderous yet scared voice
It screams
“Freedom”
I hear it
The rhythm of my heartbeat,
Shattered in pain
But filled with resilience
“Our power!”
“People power!”
“Freedom!”

Why testing her will not work out for you

W

Testing a person is not an appropriate way to really know them. This is because you have just met and everyone has to be his/her best person to impress the other not what the other person expects. Different reasons make different people fall in love; you will not act poor, uneducated, shabby just because your testing a woman’s real love; telling her insulting words all in the name of...

The summit that made me fearless

T

When I signed up to attend the Fearless summit 2018 in Kenya, little did I know that I was setting out to one of the best trips in my life. I remember telling one of my friends that I will be in the streets of Nairobi taking selfies as the summit was going on. This lack of enthusiasm was not down to a careless feeling of self importance, but as a Muslim, attending a Christian based summit was the...

PoetryBits: For God and My Country

P

For God and my country It’s written on pieces of paper and fabrics On countless coins and house bricks I wish we could sing it I wish we could dance and rejoice when we hear it Or we could run and hide when it shames us For God and my country The first foundation stones that define us Number one: “For the God that made us His love is the rope that binds us Our hopes, our plans, our prayers, We...

Zidane exit the first of a massive exodus at Real

Z

No one quits while at the top. That is why Bill Gates will do everything to crash his competition and make that extra dollar. At least that is what we thought until the main man Zinedine ZIdane shocked the world on Thursday when he announced that he will be leaving Real Madrid, just 5 days after winning his 3rd consecutive UEFA champions League trophy after sweeping Liverpool away in Kiev. Not a...

I welcome you once again to our Quran series. Everyday, in this blessed month of Ramadan, we shall share one verse or two from a section of the Quran, so that we may be inspired and perhaps renew our hope in this world and in the hereafter.

How a girl became the beautiful stranger to love

H

She met a guy she didn’t know. “You are beautiful”, he said to her. His eyes were quite big for a man. His lips too. He spoke with a slight stammer, as if fidgeting for breath. “There is so much power in  words. Just three of them accompanied with a sexy smirk and we are done!”, she thought to herself. She only managed to smile back in response. He smiled back too as he blushed...

Seek help from the one who owns the absolute Power

S

It is that time of the year again. The blessed month is upon us. The month of blessings and mercy. Most importantly, it is the month in which the Quran was revealed. This gives it my most favorite name, the month of the Quran. I officially welcome you to this year’s Quran series. This year, the theme for the series is HOPE! We aim to pick out a particular verse in each Juz that will, by...
