My Experience In Nysc Orientation Camp Delta State
The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing).
Around 12a.m I checked my NYSC portal hoping to see that I have been relocated to a northern State(Kano to be precise), but I saw something I didn’t want, which is a state in south south, Delta state. Was not happy with this, but I picked myself up with this
And it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.
I accepted it because I did ask for guidance from Allaah before choosing the States I chose, so I travelled to delta. When I got to the orientation camp, I was given a number. While going to the multipurpose Hall where the registration process was going on, couldn’t complete the registration that day cuz I got there late, when I entered the hostel I was allocated to sleep. Some guys were already “high” on alcohol and were spewing rubbish. Their noise disturbed me from sleeping and I couldn’t sleep till after 12 midnight.
Around 3am I got out to fetch water for bathing, to my greatest surprise, I met a very long queue. But something else surprised me more. Girls, coming out almost nude staying on the same queue, no shame, one came out with ordinary towel that did not exceed halfway of her thighs, had to take my eyes away immediately, the males were no better….. Coming out with ordinary briefs.
Then I blamed myself for coming out, I couldn’t get water, so I went to the mosque and fortunately they had water there, I fetched from it. When I got to where I was to take my bath at the males’ hostel bathroom I saw another thing that surprised me, an open space for bathroom, more than 20 people can enter into it and take their bath with everyone in it having access to each others private part. I couldn’t enter cuz I can’t imagine myself being in a bathroom with another man in it.
I left that spot and kept my water because I didn’t know another place for bathing….so when it got to around 4am, the bugler started blowing his bugle and I went to the mosque briskly so the soldiers won’t force me to the parade which will eventually make me miss salaah’s time. When I got there, Alhamdulillaah I saw the mosque filled up with brothers and sisters, was happy we had so many Muslims in camp unknown to me that I was wrong, you see why I said so insha Allaah….although most are Hausas.
So.the Imam(who is a batch A corp member) had signs of salafiyyah in him Alhamdulillaah, and I was happy as well cuz I never expected seeing someone upon the sunnah in Delta. A short naseehah was given, and we prayed, then we left for parade……..
To be continued insha Allaah……
