“It bothers on standing firm to our faith and believe that Allah is always there with us all the way in our times of trial and hardship. Also, to remember that others are always watching us and may learn one or two things from our steadfastness. It enjoins everyone to be good ambassadors of Islam in our deeds and character and living in the light of the way of our Prophet Muhammad (SAW)

The Two Aishas
The CEO of Arabel Productions, Alhaja Shereefah Abiola Andu, pitched two leading Kannywood star acts Rahama Sadau and Maryam Booth against each other in The Two Aishas, a new feature expected to hit the cinema nationwide from Monday, April 24.
Before the movie begins showing at the cinema on Monday, the premiere will bring together the creme de la creme of the society on Sunday, April 23 at ‘The Jewel Aeida’, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos, with the theme: Arabian, Glitz and Glamour.
The event, which starts with a red carpet, is strictly by invitation.
The Two Aishas – distributed by Filmone, showcases the beauty of Islam and culture, while addressing relatable themes such as forgiveness, betrayal, love, rivalry and piousness.
The film, which also features Paul Utomi, Akeem Ogara, Shushu Abubakar, Nyma Akashat-Zibiri and Sulaiman Aledeh among others, is a brainchild of top Nigerian fashion star Shareefah Abiola Andu, who is known as the face behind the popular Islamic merchandizing brand, Arabel.
Speaking with Muslim News, Alhaja Abiola-Andu said the movie is about two best friends from childhood who are married and something along the line caused them to have a rift.
According to her, “They became enemies. They became rivals and that threatened their faith as Muslims but at the end of the day they got back to the real essence of Islam. You would see forgiveness, empathy, understanding. You would see love and tolerance.
“So, it is not just a ‘feel good’, it is actually a lesson-filled film because what is the point of going to the cinema and spending an hour and half just to laugh. It is good to laugh, but then, if you are laughing you must still gain something out of it.”
