DON’T HESITATE TO BE A FEMINIST

Don’t Hesitate To Be a Feminist

Part 1

By

Naana Aishaa


Welcome to Northern part of Nigeria were as soon as you bring up the topic “Feminism” you will be shut up with the Qur’anic verse;

“Alrrijalu qawwamoona AAala alnnisa-i bima faddala Allahu baAAdahum AAala baAAdin wabima anfaqoo min amwalihim…”

The men are the maintainers (and protectors) of the women because Allah has made some of them to excel the others and because they spend out of their property (for the women as bridal-money and livelihood…. ). {Qur’an 4:verse 34}.

The worst part is that 65% of those using it as a weapon cannot even recite the complete verse not to talk of the translation or reason behind the revelation of the verse. (Uncle If am lying I dare you recite the complete verse for me!).

Uncle will not provide proper shelter, food, clothing let alone education for his kids but as soon as his wife talks about starting a business or looking for something to depend on you go viral “mutunci ya mace dakin mijinta, mace bai kamata tana cudanya da maza ba, baki da godiyar ubangiji”. Oga what do you want her to do?Steal?! Or are you expecting her photosynthesize money?! Is okay! You know how to protect your selfish interest while neglecting your obligations.

Just of recent a tweet about girls going to tahajjud to pray for good husbands went trending on twitter, and to my amusement some men were like “kin gama yawon bariki ne zaki zo ki cika masallaci kina Allah ya baki miji na gari?”. Accepted! Tayi yawon bariki but ai ba ita kadai tayi ba! It takes a “HE and SHE” to make bariki! (Or am I not speaking the truth). Is it not a good thing that she turns to Allah?

“Ai lalacewar da namiji ado ne”. Tell me have you ever planted beans and reaped rice?! NO! You harvest what you sow and guess what?! Both the guy and girl that went against Allah’s command are likely to taste the same punishment. The same thunder that fires her will fire you as well.

When a girl wears makeup the comment goes like “she is an attention seeker”, “She is a hoe”, “Fake eyelashes”, “What a counterfeit?!”.

When she decides to go bare the story becomes “She is a tomboy”, “Sai kace namiji”.

When she decides to cover up, “Wai ita ta Allah!”, “Aren’t you feeling hot in hijaab with this harsh weather”, and other condemnatory remarks.

My brother don’t you think a lot of problems would have been solved if you learn to lower your gaze? Remember Jahannam is harsher than the hot weather.

I witnessed a domestic violence abuse were a husband hits and denies his wife and she dare not utter a word, Why?! Because she is woman and “Zaman aure Ibadah ne!”, and the dimwit walks with high shoulders bragging “Ko a yau na sake ki zan auri wata!”. Of course! What makes you believe Karma is sleeping? You will get the justice you deserve.

It baffles me how a guy that has never appreciate the daily meal his mother cooks, never sweep the room his is living in, summon up his younger sisters to pack the plates he ate on thinks he is old enough to get married. My brother how? When even your basic manners are lacking?

I watched a scenario in which a guy was earnestly gazing at an innocent girl and when the girl got fed up and stared back she was said to lack home training.

A guy requested the picture of a girl on social media and she replies

“My policy states no sharing of pictures online”. And she got the compliment “You’re the rudest girl on planet! A irin haka ne kuke rasa mijin aure”.

Our girls are thought how to cover up and lower their gaze, girls are always the center of discipline while our guys are left out. Isn’t it high time to set things right?

A girl who speaks up for her right is leveled stubborn.

Feminism is all about recognising yourself as a girl, accepting yourself for who you’re and protecting your rights as a woman.

It is fine to be called obstinate or stubborn but it is never fine to be naive. Voice it out and fight for your right.

START ANYTHING NO MATTER SMALL , IT WILL ONE DAY BECOME BIG. DON’T LOOK DOWN ON WHAT YOU DO , ONE DAY YOU SHALL RISE!- Miss Aysha Halilu

This is Matan Arewa, a forum where we aim at showcasing talented and upcoming Arewa role models to the world. Our guest today is Aisha Muhammad Halilu, a fashion designer and a chef. Enjoy reading.

Tell us a little about yourself and your background

My name is Aisha Muhammad Halilu popularly known as lady Ayshert, I’m from Kebbi State living in Abuja. I acquired my primary and secondary school education in Kebbi State. I extended my education to Kebbi State Polytechnic (WUFPBK) where I studied computer. I am now awaiting for my admission at Danfodio University Sokoto.

Can you tell us how you get your idea or concept for the business?

I got my idea through social media and it happened when my best friend got married and flew to Malaysia with her husband. She started a business and I helped in posting her stuffs and advertising for her. From then, it caught my attention and I realized even I can do it and have my own clients. The first step I took was changing my personal instagram handle to a business handle and I created my own website because I studied Computer Science.

What was your mission at the outset

My mission is to become the most famous business tycoon that deals with everything about fashion, from creating to editing, and on the other hand I want to become an executive Chef.

What service(s) or product(s) do you offer?

I am an Oriflame consultant so I offer cosmetics and can help you turn cosmetics into routine money. I also sell different types of collections like fabrics, fabrics like ankara, swiss lace, Australian lace, veils, jewelries, hijabs, gowns, abayas, throw pillows, turban hats, cuff-links, shoes and bags. I’m also a crocheter and I crochet in most cases, I make crocheted scrunchies and headbands. I also offer jewelries made from beads, key holders

What or who inspired you to start a business?

My inner self, I always used to ask my self when will I start something?, then I finally decided to just start at that moment, it is never too early to start something. It happened in 2016 when I started learning to make different things but it all started with beads making. Dreams do come true but you have to make it reality which you have to work hard in order to achieve it.

*Who motivated you to start a business?*

I have a lot of people that motivate and support me from family to friends and with all the strangers I deal with daily that turns out to be clients. I will like to use this opportunity to say a big thank you for your support.

*What can you say is the biggest drawback you’ve experienced since you started?*

Alhamdulillah, I haven’t experienced any of such failures.

*What about your biggest success?*

My biggest success is realising the talent that Allah gave me at my teenage age, not everyone has that opportunity. Alhamdulillah now and always.

*Who were the mentors that encouraged and supported you?*

The king and queen that built a castle for me (dad & mom), they are the best i can pray for in this world and the hereafter. And Subhanallah, Allah gave them to me without even asking, indeed Allah is great!.

*What are your business goals?*

My main goal is to help females use cosmetics and make money, look good and make money (oriflame). I don’t know what the future holds, but in the next 10 years, i see myself as a business tycoon with different companies that deals with fashion.

*May your wishes come true. Tell us about the uniqueness of your business that makes you believe in it’s expansion?*

The uniqueness in my business is that I deal with every type of class- from high class, middle class to low class. la_fashion_trends offers all, iya kudinka iya shagalinka.

*What are your responsibilities as a business owner?”*

I don’t have any assistant yet so I’m always with my phone and my data is always on, I do everything, replying to all mails and Dm’s. You know talking with strangers is not at all easy, you have to work at it and be patient. Some come and go with “In na tashi zan miki magana(smiling), but those that stay and buy are more than those that go just like that, I say Alhamdulillah for that.

*What made you choose this particular kind of business?*

My love for Fashion and the zeal that I’ve got in me. I know that will take me to a lot of places.

*If you had one piece of advice to a person that is just starting out, what would it be?*

There is something you have to know about entrepreneurship, you as an entrepreneur have to know that you are the heart of your business. Make it a passion before you make it a business. And when you start, try to have goods for everyone, don’t limit yourself with just one class, you won’t grow that way. There will always be ups and downs, be patient and don’t give up, they come and go. Success doesn’t happen overnight.

*Is there any time that things didn’t go the way you wanted?, what was the event?*

It happened in 2016 when I registered into oriflame but due to the place i lived, nobody was interested in purchasing them, they kept saying they are expensive, this and that. I tried so many times to give up but the inner me did the pursuing, it couldn’t let go and so I kept moving. Now when i look back, I smile and say Alhamdulillah.

*What is the accomplishment that you consider to be most significant in your career?*

That I get to create website under vpricex and to have my products added there, i got five customers on the day i created it. Always Alhamdulillah.

*What is your biggest piece of advice for female entrepreneurs?*

My advice is; start anything no matter small, it will one day become big. Don’t look down on what you do, one day you shall rise!.

*What three tools (apps, books, podcasts, etc.) would you recommend to anyone trying to start a business?*

YouTube (of course diy’s), pinterest and Instagram, they help a great deal.

*Who is your role model?*

My sisters.

*Who is your pillar of support?”*

My father. He provided a crafts room for me and gave me capital to start. I love him so damn much.

*To what do you attribute your success?*

It takes hardwork, patience, and the inner me that never gives up.

*How do you advertise your business?*

I use social media to advertise and I like meeting new people.

*What is your favorite day of the week?*

Monday of course. I discover new things that day, going for delivery and all. So, that is my favourite day of the week, I like getting to work.

*What is your favorite song, book, quote, food and gift?*

My favourite song is ‘Try everything’ by Shakira, that song is the perfect description of me. My favourite book is ‘You can be the happiest woman in the world’ and quote is ‘A chef must think like a scientist, organise like an accountant, inspire and motivate like a warrior, move like a track star, plate like an artist and cook like grand mama’. I don’t have a favourite food, I’m inlove with spices. As for gifts, I like anything that comes from heart.

*How do you achieve work-life balance?*

Well, it was hard at first but I’m now getting used to it, it takes a lot of hardwork to do all this. I am a dreamer, a doer and a thinke, I see endless possibilities everywhere.

*Do you think women feel intimidated in business?*

No, I don’t think so, we are full of creativity.

*Which famous person, living or dead would you like to meet and why?*

Paul Bocuse, he is named the father of culinary art in france. He was a french chef based in Lyon who was known for the high quality of his restaurants and his innovatives approaches to cuisine. He was born on 11th February, 1926 at collonges-au-mon d’or, France and died on 20th january 2018 at collonges-au-mon d’or, France. Aged 91 years, he had 3 Michelin stars and his cooking style is nouvelle cuisine. I wish to eat the food he makes and work under him in Paris. But he passed away.

*What is your taste in fashion?*

I don’t have rule for fashion, if there is one rule for fashion, it is pretty much the same rule as for everything else in life (don’t go against yourself, don’t go against your own nature, it’s only going to show). Just dress like you are already famous. Everyday is a fashion show and the world is your runway. Dress shabbily and people will remember your dress, dress impeccable and they will remember you.

*How do you relax?*

Create a recipe in my pan, take a nap and play with some makeup.

*What would you say about Matan Arewa Forum?*

It is a very good forum, you people are doing a great job promoting our business, your contents are lovely. I see you going far and starting something bigger.

*Thank you for that. Assuming someone asks you ‘who is a Northern Nigerian Woman?’, what would be your answer?*

A Northern Nigerian woman is a woman who creates her own success, craft the life she wants and to live her own authentic purpose with passion as she guides others along the way.

*How can people discover more about you and your work?, using your social media platforms*

RAPE

RAPE

By

Ayeesh A. Sadiq

ayeeshasadeeq2010@gmail.com


Rape can be described as a forceful sexual relationship without consent.
Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse or other forms of sexual penetration carried out against a person without that person’s consent or violent penetratiion of a woman.

Worldwide, rape is primarily committed by males. Rape by strangers is usually less common than rape by persons the victim knows, and male-on-male and female-on-female prison rapes are common and may be the least reported forms of rape. The issue of rape cannot be over emphasized, the society has not grown to the stage where people boldly report cases of rape to the security, some are afraid of stigmatisation, some of the raped person can’t voice out, they end up with psychological injuries.

There is no one right or wrong way to behave to avoid rape. But there are some things a woman can do that may make her less likely to suffer some kinds of rape. What a woman does depends on how well she knows the man, how afraid she is, and how much danger she thinks she is in. Remember, if a woman is raped, it is not because she failed to avoid the rape, but because someone stronger forced himself on her.

Teach children about the possibility that they may be touched sexually, and how to tell the difference between touching that is affectionate and touching that is sexual.
If possible, have girls and boys sleep separately, especially after age 7 to 10years years old.
Make sure children know who they can talk to if something should happen to them.
Believe a child who says he or she feels uncomfortable around an adult or older child no matter who that person is.
Sometimes sexual abuse of children continues for many years. A girl may be told that she will be harmed or even killed if she tells anyone about it.

Effects of Rape

The effects of rape can include both the initial physical trauma as well as deep psychological trauma. Although rape victims commonly report injuries and issues with their reproductive health after the sexual assault , rape doesn’t always involve physical force.

The most common and lasting effects of rape involve mental health concerns and diminished social confidence.

-The victim emotion is trampled upon
-The raped person is stigmatized
-The victim will be scandalized
-He/She will live with the trauma
-It can lead to unwanted pregnancy
-It can lead to sexual transmitted diseases (STDs)
-It can lead to a stop on his/her educational pursuit.

Social media & Married Women

THE SAD TRUTH ABOUT THE SOCIAL MEDIA AND MARRIED WOMEN

In this world, wonders shall never end. Every single day, we come across new things, some are annoying, some inspiring and motivating, others make you feel that certain urge to strangle yourself or even the news bearer.

I recently came across a story about a woman who seeked divorce from her husband simply because she wants to marry a friend. What type of a friend? A friend who is also married, whom she loved and adored above her husband and whom she had meet on social media. Which brings us to the question, Is it right for a woman, even if not married to post her pictures and chat with non-muhraams on social media? But being married made it look worst and more complicated.

I believe she is already in someone’s possession, i believe she belongs to someone, I believe she is under someone’s oath, and only him should be able to see her just the way she post her pictures.

Dear sister, you post your pictures without being fully covered and claim to be married. Its no surprising if other guys approach you and claim to love you. Did you give out any sign to them that you are married? If not then they are not at fault for whatever happens.

If you want to be a slay queen, then please be so in the eyes of your husband, so that when he sees you and become happy, you gain blessings for that.

The virtues of being a woman knows no bounds. A woman symbolizes many things craved by all.. peace, bliss, comfort, joy, happiness, contentment and so many more beyond words.

My sisters, we should not waste our virtues when we can uphold them and make them benefit others in need. So sisters shun away from being a vagabond or envoy of

shaytaan in misleading yourselves as well as others.

MURJANATU ALKALI

DEAR SLAY QUEEN

DEAR SLAY QUEEN

Dressing anyhow in different styles; show me your boobs, show me your back, off shoulders, etc. Just because you want to gain the name, slay queen. Because you want to get the attention of all the boys, because you want them drooling while looking at you.

You can have people say every kind of compliment most of which do not hold any form of respect but that is not what they actually want, they only want their eyes’ pleasure by looking at your exposed body figures and nothing more.

Dear slay queen, have you ever thought of the outcome of your mode of dressings? Most the guys you think you are impressing only looked at you in a lustful manner. Some of us would say, why did they look? The only frank answer remaining, because you showed, you want them to look.

God has made it clear that He created men with the desire for women. He did not made the prohibition of indecent forms of women dressings just because men have the power to take control of their eyes. He is the one who created us and knows us better than ourselves.

Sometimes contact is not required in committing the sin of zina. Yes, there are other forms of zina, zina al’ayn (fornication by the eyes), zina alqalb (fornication by the heart). When a guy look at you, and fancy any part of your body be it your hair or any part of your aura (Parts women are asked to keep hidden). If he fancy that very part and gain pleasure through it, its called fornication by the eyes.

Fornication by the heart happens when a someone looks at you, and then imagine it in his heart that he is touching that particular part and gaining pleasure through it.

The rate at which rape happens these days is increasing due to the way we dress these days. We ladies contribute enormously at which rape happens and we don’t seem to care about it. We are always eager to cross God’s boundaries and the consequences are just nothing compared to what awaits us in the hereafter. Rape is just a part of it. May God protect us.

We should try to emulate the great women that came before us. Aisha, mother of the believers R.A, once saw a group of women dressed and beautified excessively and she told them “enjoy it here in this duniya, for it is for us in the akhira”. This is the type of woman of every man’s dream. Therefore, lets make some little adjustments in our ways, it does not hurt a bit just because you hold on to your dignity. May Allah guide us.
