Finding a Suitable Spouse just got Easier for Muslims with the Launch of SoulConnect.Ng



Marriage is an institution that is fundamental to the growth and development of society. In Islam, it is of great importance as it is established as a wedge against many vices and is relied-upon as a foundation for harmony between men and women where natural needs and responsibilities are met.

Allah says in the Qur’an:

"And one of His signs is that He created mates for you from yourselves that you may find rest in them, and He put between you love and compassion; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect." (Chapter 30 verse 21).

 It was narrated from Aishah that:

Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Marriage is part of my sunnah, and whoever does not follow my sunnah has nothing to do with me. Get married, for I will boast of your great numbers before the nations. Whoever has the means, let him get married, and whoever does not, then he should fast for it will diminish his desire” (Ibn Majah, Book 9, 1846).

It is in line with these goals that a new matchmaking website for Muslims has been launched by a group of Muslims in Nigeria. The website called Soulconnect.Ng aims at linking eligible Muslims with their potential spouses based on their preferences. Each user is allowed to register and update their profile to be listed on the website for free. However, only paying users will have access to additional features based on the service they choose which include: monthly, semi annual and annual options. This allows for flexibility and gives people interested an opportunity to invest more in finding a suitable Muslim spouse.

Soulconnect.Ng is an improvement on the Muslim Singles Matchmaking Service (MSMS) which was started on Nairaland.com by a group of Muslim members on the forum in October, 2014. Close to 7 years after, the team has had time to build on its successes in matchmaking Muslims for marriage and establish this new website to take its service to a larger audience.

According to Co-founder/CEO of the website; Architect Yussuf Babatunde Lawal, also known as “Penmight”:  “SoulConnect Matchmaking Service is connecting Muslims and helping to develop a new generation of young Muslim families. Our testimonials speak for us, join us today and experience great service on SoulConnect.Ng where we do things in compliance with Qur’an and Sunnah”.

For Muslims interested in using this service, all they have to do is visit SoulConnect.Ng, create an account, update their profile and engage with the community. There is the option to have chaperones appointed for you on the website to help you navigate the course towards marriage with a potential spouse. Also, to improve the security on the platform, the website has a dedicated team scanning its database and activities of users to identify and remove scammers, users with fake identities and other nefarious individuals.

This is definitely a positive development as we hope to have more success stories from the website soon.

How to Retrieve your NIN and Link it to MTN, Airtel, Glo and 9Mobile Number Online Easily in Nigeria


The Federal Government of Nigeria as part of its efforts to improve security in Nigeria has made it mandatory for all National Identification Numbers (NIN) issued by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to be linked to each person’s mobile phone(s). This is to ensure that each Nigerian can be tracked with the mobile phone line that they use. In recent years, terrorists, kidnappers, bandits, online fraudsters and other criminal elements have been hiding under anonymity and lack of effective enforcement of mobile SIM registration to carry out different crimes.

How to Retrieve Your NIN Number

If you have registered your SIM cards, applied for your Nigerian passport, vehicle number plate or drivers’ license or already have a Bank Verification Number (BVN) in the recent past, there is a high chance that you already have a National Identity Number (NIN). To check and access your NIN, follow these steps:

1.       Dial *346# on your mobile phone.

2.       Press 1 to retrieve your NIN from the USSD menu

3.       Your 11-digit NIN should appear as a USSD message.

4.       Write it down somewhere safe

Note: This service is now free as the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Pantami has ordered the NIMC to stop charging N20 for it.

For some people, they might be told, they do not have a NIN. It is better to check with all the mobile phones that you own. I found it available on my Airtel line but not on my MTN. Since, one NIN applies to you regardless of the telecom network you want to link to, it is much better to confirm that you truly do not have it by checking *346# on all your mobile lines.

If truly you do not have it, try visiting any of the NIMC offices closest or convenient for you to get registered.

Now, after identifying your NIN, you need to link it to your mobile phone network to prevent it from being barred. Let us look at how each network does it:

How to Link Your NIN to an MTN Number

1.       Dial *785# using the phone number you wish to link.

2.        Enter your NIN and submit

Alternatively

Dial *785*Your NIN# from the phone number you wish to link. You can also download the MTN App on your mobile phone http://bit.ly/myMTNapp and submit your NIN there.

How to Link Your NIN to an Airtel Number

1.       Dial *121*1#

2.       Submit your 11 digit pin


Alternatively


1. Dial *121#

2. Press 1 for NIN Capture

3. Enter your NIN and submit

 

How to Link Your NIN to a Glo Number

 1.       Get your mobile phone with the Glo SIM

2.       Text:  UpdateNIN NIN FirstName LastName to 109

For example: UPDATENIN 12345678903 Chidera Abdul-Ola

3.       Get confirmation of your submission


How to Link Your NIN to a 9Mobile Number

1.       Dial *200*8#

2.       Follow the prompt and respond accordingly to submit your NIN

Alternatively

Visit http://9mobile.com.ng/nin to register

There you have it folks, let me know what your experience linking all 4 networks has been like by dropping a comment.

What a Google Doodle is and how to Understand what each one Celebrates




A Google doodle is an artistic rendering of its logo on the search engine. Google uses it to celebrate different things including historical figures like Anton Wilhelm Amo, celebrated today, events like the Olympics, countries on their national day like Nigeria was celebrated on October 1 and holidays that run through the year in different parts of the world.

Many people get confused when they see a doodle, "has Google changed its logo?", they often ask. This is not the case, it is just an artistic way of celebrating people, places and things Google deems important.
