Muslims have slammed Nike, urging them to recall their Air Max 720 trainers because the logo on the sole allegedly resembles Allah in Arabic.

Over 8,000 people have signed a petition by Saiqa Noreen, accusing the shoes of being ‘disrespectful and extremely offensive to Muslims and insulting to Islam’.

Ms Noreen said of the trainers launched in 2017.

‘Nike has produced the Nike Air Max 270 shoe with the script logo on the sole resembling the word Allah in Arabic, which will surely be trampled, kicked and become soiled with mud or even filth.It is outrageous and appalling of Nike to allow the name of God on a shoe.’ ‘

Ms Noreen added

‘Islam teaches compassion, kindness, and fairness towards all. We urge Nike to recall the blasphemous and offensive shoe and all products with the design logo resembling the word Allah from worldwide sales immediately.

We also request stricter scrutiny of products before they enter the market. I urge all Muslim’s and everyone who respects the freedom of religion to sign this petition.’

Nike said in a statement: ‘

Nike respects all religion and we take concerns of this nature seriously.

The Air Max logo was designed to be a stylised representation of Nike’s Air Max trademark. It is indented to reflect he Air Max brand only. Any other perceived meaning or representation is unintentional.’

How to Send And Request Money With Facebook Messenger In Simple Steps

Published

on

Facebook Messenger allows you to send and receive money, as long as you have a debit card issued by a US bank. Once you’ve added your debit card, you can send money to other people on Messenger, or request payment.

This makes paying your friends back for the movie or getting rent from your roommate as simple as a few taps. Sending money on Facebook is a free service and Facebook does not charge any fees.

1. Add Card; Open the Profile (Android) or Settings (iOS) tab in Messenger. You can send and receive money using the Messenger app by adding your debit card to your Messenger account. To begin the process of adding your card, open the Profile or Settings tab in the Messenger app. Adding a card allows Messenger to deposit and withdraw money to and from your checking account. Transfers may take up to five business days to process. Sending and receiving money is a free service in Messenger, and Facebook does not collect any fees. Messenger payments are currently only supported in the US.

2. Tap “Payments” to open the payment method options. You’ll be able to add a debit card from this menu, as well as review your payment history.

3. Tap “Add new debit card” to add your card. Only bank-issued MasterCard and Visa debit cards are currently supported. You cannot use a credit card, pre-paid debit card, or PayPal card.[1]

4. Enter your card information. Enter your debit card number, expiration date, security code, and billing zip code. Tap “Save” once you’re finished. Messenger does not currently support cards from all banks. If your card is not accepted, try again in a week or two to see if support has been added for your bank or credit union.

5. Add a PIN (optional). In the Payments menu, you can set a PIN for the card you added. This PIN will be required whenever money is sent from the device. Don’t use the same PIN as your ATM or use your device’s lock screen passcode.

Sending MoneyEdit

1. Open a conversation with the person you want to send money to. You can start the process from any conversation, including group conversations, as long as the person you want to send money to is in it.

2. Tap the contact’s name in the top of the screen, if there is only one person in the conversation and tap “Send or Request Money”.If there are multiple people in the conversation, you’ll be prompted to select the person you want to send money to.

4. Enter a reason in the “For” field (optional). You can include a quick note with the payments explaining what it’s for (e.g. “rent” or “tickets”). This is optional.

5. Tap the “Pay” button underneath the (for) box to send the payment. The payment notification will be sent to the conversation, and the recipient can receive the money. The recipient will only be able to receive money if they add a debit card to Messenger as well.

Open a conversation with the person you want to request money from. Facebook does not allow you to use Messenger Payments for business transactions.

The request will appear in the conversation, and the recipient will be able to approve it. The recipient will need to have a debit card added to their Messenger account to send the money, and you’ll need one to receive it.

20 percent Of Nigerians Mentally Ill : Psychiatrist

Published

on

Nigeria

A renowned Consultant Psychiatrist at the Federal Medical Center, Gusau, Zamfara, Dr Aremu Saad, says over 20 percent of Nigerians suffer from different forms of mental illnesses.

Dr. Aremu made this disclosure on Thursday while speaking with journalists, according to NAN.

He also said many of the patients do not know that they were not well due to the negligence of routine medical checks.

He said the figure was part of various mental health care researches conducted by experts in recent years.

“We are also very sure that only about 20 percent of those with the illness has violent tendencies and the illness is curable if medical care is given and the patient adheres to the doctor’s prescriptions.”

He said that the situation was further compounded by the non-passage of Mental Health Bill by the National Assembly.

He said mental illnesses could occur due to drug abuse, genetic transfer, depression, or even if one loses an election, like in recent times in Nigeria.

Aremu then expressed confidence in the passage of the bill on Mental Health, noting that it would address the issues of treatment, facilities, offenders who hide behind mental illness and stigmatization among others.
