Additionally, they also believe in all the prophets which preceded Prophet Muhammad and the holy books which they brought, such as the Psalms, Torah, and the Gospel. A fundamental article of faith in Islam is belief in the Day of Judgement, when all humanity will be recompensed for their deeds in this world.

4. Ustaz Isa Friday Okonkwo

Ustaz Isa Friday Okonkwo is one of the famous Igbo Muslims.

Ustaz Isa Friday Okonkwo is the director of administration of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA). NSCIA is the umbrella organization and the superintendent of the affairs of Islam and Muslims in Nigeria, under the leadership of His Eminence, the Sultan of Sokoto and its President General Alh.

He has undergone various trainings and qualifications including business and financial literacy and a consultancy qualification programme. He is a certified Chartered Project Manager (CPM).

5. HRH Dr. Abdulfatai Emetumah

He was formerly a Christian before converting to Islam through the influence of his father, Eze Alhaji Abdul Gaffaru, who brought Islam to his hometown during the Nigeria civil war.

I want you to know that those Igbo people who embraced Islam are not fools who rush in where angels fear to tread, but they honored their own choices and preferences. In Nigeria, everyone has the fundamental human right of freedom to the religion of choice.

Moreover, they have thought and convinced that they will find salvation in Islam before they embraced it. Almost everywhere in the world, Islam is spreading gradually likewise Christianity. 

There are some Hausa people that we believe they born to be Muslims and they ended up accepting Jesus Christ in their lives. So, those Igbo people should not be criticized.

Moreover, oftentimes, the best things in life are free. Air, which is the most important element for all creatures, is free, water, especially the rainwater, is also free for all, and likewise, God’s salvation is also free. These Igbo people were merely looking for God’s salvation until they found it in Islam according to their final judgment which later led them to accept the religion.

20+ Pictures of Women with the biggest bumps who surprised us by giving birth to just one child

20+ Pictures of Women with the biggest bumps who surprised us by giving birth to just one child

Pregnancy is an important stage in womanhood and it is the joy of every woman to experience it without stress. There are some women with moderate pregnancy bumps; yet, they give birth to twins or even more at a time. Funnily enough, some women whose pregnancy bumps are big ended up giving birth to just a single child. The difference is the weight, seize and development of the child.

Studies show that the size of the pregnancy bump is not a determinant of giving birth to more than one child. One thing that is just certain is that if it is one child, the child will be so big and well-nurtured. 

win 40k and a night with me

It is such a wonder that these women have a very big pregnancy bumps but they end up with just a single child. The explanation to that is that the abdominal muscle in a woman determines the size of her tummy during pregnancy. Some women’s body is not stretchable, thus, when they get pregnant, the growing uterus within them is going to stay closer to the core of the body and unable to move freely. On the other hand, some women’s body are stretchable thus, they had possibly stretched their abdominal muscles during their first childbirth which makes the second pregnancy bump stretchable due to the elasticity of the abdominal muscles.

Science also proves that there is high possibility that a tall woman has a high tendency of having a bigger pregnancy bumps than a short woman. It is believed that once a woman has a tall height she probably has a long abdomen too which will create more space for the uterus to grow instead of just pushing outwards. A short woman has a little space between her hip and lowest rib to accommodate a big uterus.

Most women have bigger pregnancy bumps in their second pregnancy. A woman who had given birth has a higher tendency of having a big pregnancy bump in her second pregnancy because her skin and abdominal muscles are already stretched due to her first pregnancy.

 

Another reason that makes most women have big pregnancy bumps and end up delivering one child is the position of the baby. When you see a woman with an extremely large belly, she may be in her last trimester, thus, the baby inside her is definitely in a head-down position which makes her belly to grow outward, especially if the mother has a stretchable belly.

 

The common belief of most mothers is that once they have a large belly, multiple children are coming which is partly true but not absolutely. It is true that multiple pregnancies affect the size of the womb but not usually the belly. It can also make the belly big but not necessarily.

If you want all your prayers answered by God, avoid doing these things

If you want all your prayers to always get answered by God, avoid doing these things

win 40k and a night with me

 

There are so many Christian faithful whose prayers do not get answered by God anytime they pray. Many even go to the mountain, fast for days still; they do not get what they want from God.

win 40k and a night with me

 

win 40k and a night with me

 

win 40k and a night with me

 

win 40k and a night with me

In the course of this article, I have 2 major reasons which could be behind that and I will also propose some things that you must stop doing, in order to get what you want from God.

 

It is evident in the book of Matthew 7:7 that we should seek God for whatever we need and we will receive it. Following this, many Christians ask God for many things but they never get positive response because of the following things:

 

Insufficient faith in God: The power of faith can never be overestimated. Faith is more powerful than Prayer. Many Christians make the mistake of praying with two minds; one of faith and the other of doubt. Anyone who does not have full faith in God cannot receive anything from him.

 

 

 

According to James in the bible, we must pray in faith and without any doubt. It was mentioned in the bible that even if your faith is as small as a mustard seed, you can command the mountain to move. All what we need is faith in God. Many Christians believe God is able but he cannot do everything for them

 

Without praying to God, a non-believer can even get what he wants if he has faith in himself; that is the power of faith. Faith is so powerful than our prayers to God.

 

The second hindrance is Sin: Christians are guilty of this. It was said in the bible that sins hinders intercession. If God will answer the prayers of a Christian, it would be that of a holy one who conforms his life to the holy will of the Lord God.

 

The book of Isaiah 59:2 shows how Isaiah warned the people of Israel to flee from their sin, so as for their God to hear them. This is also evident in Peter’s declaration in the book of (1 Pet 3: 12); where he says that the eyes of the lord are only upon those that are righteous and his ears unto their supplication.

 

 

 

 

If you truly want you prayers answered, you will have to wash yourself of all iniquities and God will carry you with open hands.

 

After doing these things, you need to sincerely say the following Prayers to God now:

 

 

Oh lord, I want you to accept me like the prodigal son and forgive me all of my iniquities.

 

Oh Lord, I declare my absolute Faith in you once again today, Father, please aid my steadfastness in you.

 

Any impunity that may serve as hindrance to my prayers from now on, oh lord remove them; For in Jesus Mighty Name We have prayed.

 

Try as much as possible to follow this account for more of this and forward this to all your loved ones.
