Weakness of Faith in Islam

Weakness of Faith in Islam

Uploaded by Saeed Abduljelil

Introduction Praise be to Allaah, we praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of our own souls and from our evil deeds. Whomever Allaah guides, none can lead astray, and whomever Allaah leaves astray, none can guide. I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allaah alone, with no partner or associate, and I bear witness that Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

Christianity and Its Impacts in Edem-Ani in Nsukka Local Government Area Enugu Statedocx

Christianity and Its Impacts in Edem-Ani in Nsukka Local Government Area Enugu Statedocx

Uploaded by Victor Ajibo

Summary Summarily, the establishment of Christianity in Nigeria, Igboland, and most especially in the community of Edem-Ani, is an occurrence that has been of a great concern to the people. This is because of the impacts that the Christian religion ant the missionaries have given to the community (Edem-Ani) so far. But it should be understood that most of these contributions of Christianity on the people’s lives and living is not only based on the positive aspects, but rather, there were other areas that were affected due to the coming of the Christian Mission in Edem-Ani. Most of these impacts are still seen in the tradition, religion, culture, economy, politics, education and social lives of the people. Though these Christian Missionaries have come and gone, thereby leaving a legacy for the natives, yet some of these traditional and cultural practices of the people still exists. This shows the solidity of the people’s culture and tradition. In Edem-Ani today, there are still traces of these traditional practices. There are even those that combines Christianity and traditional religion among the Edem-Ani people. This shows the high rate of syncretism among the natives that were converted to Christianity. Finally, it is important to know that the introduction of Christianity in Edem-Ani and “Edem” as a whole, did not just have impact on the people’s lives alone, but also led to the development of their environments infrastructurally. This was because, the Christian Missionaries came to the community, not only to evangelize them, but to also develop the area. Roads were constructed for the sake of free passage into other parts of the community. Also schools, hospitals and other facilities that would facilitate the spread of the gospel, were also put in place.

Light in Darkness

Light in Darkness

Uploaded by ABOKI ASSOCIATES

This book is a concise and deliberate effort to communicate the Christian faith from the point of view of the Catholic Church by elaborating in detail such areas of the faith that many people have not been able to come to terms with in the living experience of their faith. The book seeks to answer such salient questions that pertain to theology, moral ethics, spirituality, doctrine and scripture. It also touches on the metaphysical nature of life after death. It is a good material for scholars, students of theology, catechetical instructions on the sacraments, the church and other doctrinal issues. There could be no other good companion during dull and relaxed moments than a copy of this book.

Living in Righteousness

Living in Righteousness

Uploaded by ABOKI ASSOCIATES

After one has received Christ as one’s personal Lord and Saviour, the next step is: Doing right in all places (Righteousness) without which, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. Indeed Hebrews 12:14 SAYS: “Make every efforts to live at peace with all men and for holiness without which no one can see God”. Although, no matter how much one tries to live the life of righteousness, his righteousness is useless without Christ, for Christ is our righteousness. The Greek word dikaiosune is always translated as righteousness and is found 92 times in scripture whereas the English version of it is found 305 times in scripture and it means: Doing right in all places. Infact, it is only in Christ alone and by faith in His atonement can we live righteous lives (Rom 3:22-25; 4:1-22).

Don't Worry

Don't Worry

Uploaded by ABOKI ASSOCIATES

There are varying styles to poetry and varied reasons why we write. For some people, it is simply a way to flaunt skills to carry out some specific purpose that lies within them at that point. Others – and I think I fall here – simply express that which weighs on the mind. Still there is the need to follow that proclamation made by Horace many years ago: literature must be dulce et utile (sweet and useful). Let it entertain (in sweetness) and instruct (being functional; useful). For many people, each day brings more reasons to frown than smile. Worry becomes a shadow that trails most of our lives limiting us in ways we cannot grasp. It becomes a weight that pulls us down. To move forward then, we need to let go of this worry and embrace such other things as would make the heaviness of life light. What are those things that we ought to do to rid ourselves of this worry? What are the things that would make us move to greater heights? For some of us, the answer stares us in the face and we refuse to accept them. For others, they have no idea and would need some instruction to grasp these seeming simple things. In the two cases there is a need to reemphasise how to release this worry and pick up vi greater habits that would be more beneficial for growth. We need a rethink and re-evaluation of our values. This is where the heart of Chieshe’s collection, Don’t Worry comes in. We are made to note, that yes, there are many things that can make us worry from failed aspirations to general failures.
