EPISODE 3
Time wait for no one,it already
two months of my arrival..
Alhaji’s family have been so nice
to me,most especially Ajiah…she
took me like a daughter… In fact
she always love me to
accompany her whenever she is
going out…
Though big Ummu personality
hasn’t been clear to me as we
exchange only Teslim.. Nothing
more than that…maybe that’s her
way of life…as I use to think…
And for Sekinah,she is not always
at home…she is an accountant in
one of Alhaji’s companies… She is
just a very lucky lady,as young as
I thought she could be, she
already had her HND degree…she
had continue her education
immediately she finished her
OND program….
Yeseer left home just three
weeks after my arrival, he had
been offered admission into
University of Ibadan through
direct entry to study HRM(Human
Resource Management)….he also
had an OND result in marketing..
But he went to modrasah after
his OND program….which made
Sekinah graduated before him.
Bro.Sufyan had also gain
admission to Obafemi Awolowo
University to study Educational
Technology…
Yeseer absence gave ease to my
heart, as it won’t get filtered
whenever I see him…but I can’t
for a day stop thinking about
him…in fact for the very first time
in my life, I had a crush on
someone…
Throughout those weeks he
spent before he finally left,we
never exchange words except
Teslim…maybe he do gaze at me
when I don’t notice but i have
never seen him raising his head
to look at me…..
He is just a Ma Shah Allah
brother….
That alone melt my heart… “As it’s
one of the qualities I have been
praying for in any one that will
finally be my Zawj”…..
But why did I think he could end
up being my husband???….I will
quickly divert my attention to
something else whenever I
notice the accumulation of those
unanswerable questions in my
mind….
It was actually a blissful
afternoon for me when I went to
check my waec result….
“Allah has done it again”
I couldn’t hide my happiness as a
paper was handed to me by a
lady at the cyber café ….
At first my heart skipped as if it
could no longer pump blood…..
But I later controlled my
emotion,at least for every
situation Allah has a better
reason….
I opened the paper with my face
full of sweat as if I was ask to
break an iroko tree into pieces… I
was already shivering..but later,
courageously I looked at the
paper and unconsciously I found
myself on sujood …..it indeed a
prostration of gratitude….
Allhamdulilah as I raised from the
prostration… That was when I
know people were watching
me…but my mind wasn’t storing
that….it was as if an aeroplane
should just take me home so that
I can share the news with my
mum…..
Happiness was written all over
me..as I walked home with a lot
of thoughts in my mind……. “So I
wouldn’t have to reseat for any
subject, I have finally had my
O’level result” which of Allah’s
favor will I deny???none o..I
muttered aloud before I realized i
was on the road…..
As I opened the gate,I bumped
into Ajiah…
Dear what’s it…..you look so
excited…..
What are you holding,Ajiah
asked….I couldn’t alter a word
after we exchanged Teslim…..I
was just showing those set of
gapped teeth in my mouth…..she
collected the paper and check
what it contains……
Ma shah Allah…..she said in a loud
voice.. My baby is actually a B
square…. Beauty plus brain…..
Barakalahu Fihi my beloved…..may
you move to greater height
bihidhinilahi,she prayed and I
said amin……..
Congratulations sweetheart
……..this call for celebration.. She
said and I replied , yes ma….it
really worth celebrating…..
My mum was also very happy….at
least Allah has crown her effort
and her striving for sending me
to one of the most standard
private schools in Auchi………
Ajiah really meant her words… As
she asked me to be fast with my
chores the next day.. She want to
take me for shopping….
“I never understand what I did to
deserve all this special treatment
from Ajiah”
Maybe mum is very good to
her….as i always think……..
It was a cool Saturday,I have
quickly done all my chores and
ready to take my breakfast
before we leave…..
Ajiah is already waiting beside
her car….I made the Teslim to
mum and left the room…..
Assalamun aleikum dear… Ajiah
greeted me and I replied…..wal
eikum salam waramotulahi
wabarakatu ma…how was ur
night and how is Mum..
Alhamdulilahi ma, I replied…..
‘You are looking gorgeous
…she commented ….
Thanks so much ma……
Where will u like to go
dear??….she asked….
I rolled my eyes and stretch one
of my hand on my head,as I don’t
know anywhere yet…..
Anywhere that suit you ma…..you
know I don’t know anywhere
here…….
Alright dear….. We entered the car
and she drove off..
The A.C of the car dealt with the
sudden heat I was feeling…. As I
was feeding my ears with Al-
Sudais Qur’an reciter that was
being played……
Ajiah really made my day…..apart
from the fact that we went for
shopping,where I got different
pairs of shoes,Abaya and
Kimar,jeweleries and 3 different
bags…. She still took me to
different places,as if am on an
excursion…. We even went to
Zoo… I really saw the beauty of
Abuja that very day…..
We headed home when it was
almost time for Zuhr…….but
suddenly Ajiah packed in front of
a fashion designer’s shop….she
got down and asked me to come
with her…..
We entered the shop and a lady
welcomed us with Teslim….
But Ajiah …you told me to bring
them to your place this
evening,said the Lady….
I don’t know I will be passing
here today, and to save your
stress I decided to collect them
myself….. Hope you are done with
everything,, Ajiah asked …
No ma..she replied…… And then
we heard the Adhan……..
It seems Ajiah is very welcome in
that place as she went straight
for the kettle so we can perform
ablution……we finished
performing ablution ,there was a
praying mat in a corner of the
shop, as we wanted to start the
Solah Ajiah called out the
seamstress name…..
Bukky……..are u off Solat??
“No ma,she responded with a
faint smile”….
Then y don’t u join us so we can
have it in congregation???Ajiah
asked….
No o ma,pray your own… When
am done I will pray alone….am
almost done with stitching this
side of the cloth…..she replied
with a very faint smile now….
O-L-U-B-U-K-O-L-A, Ajiah stressed
her name…..
Ohhhhhh Ajiah has come again
o……it is not that I won’t pray ,I
just want to finish what am
doing and besides am on a short
gown ….I can’t pray with it…..she
narrated with an obvious
smile……..
Subuhanalahi……..I exclaimed in
my thought…….
U know what bukky,……. None of
what u just said is an excuse for
not praying at the right time……….
Bukky if only you know this
world is the smallest thing ever,u
wouldn’t want to delay any act of
Ibadah….Ajia explained to her……
Ajiah o and her preaching……that
y I like coming to delivered your
cloth myself instead of having
you here …..she murmured
jokingly and stood up to perform
ablution….
I ran to the car and brought one
of my newly bought kimar for
her…….she wore it and we had
the Solah in congregation……
After saying the adhkar and had
the nawafil individually…..she
removed the kimar,folded it very
smooth, return it back to me and
thanked me………
Ajiah I still have to stitch two of
the clothes o….hope I will not
waste ur time, have been
thinking it is in the evening,I
never know u will be
here…..Bukky said…..
Alright no problem, I can still wait
a little, but if I can’t bear it any
longer it means u will bring it
home for me……….Ajiah replied…..
Almost 30 minutes later she was
still on one cloth…… So I decided
to help her with the second cloth
since there is another sewing
machine there……..
Can u sew ?????Ajiah asked,
showing a little surprise in her
expression……
“Yes ma I can sew,though am not
yet perfect in cutting into
styles,but I can perfectly stitch
any cut cloth…I replied…..
Were u learning it at Edo??she
asked….
Yes ma, the Ummu I was staying
with is a seamstress and I pay
attention just like an apprentice
back then bcus I really love
sewing and gradually I was
learning……I replied…
Aunty Bukky was very glad I
helped her and in no time we left
there and got home……
To be continue In shah Allah……
