The Word QUr'an in Qur'an
(1) Say, "Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel - it is [none but] he who has brought the Qur'an down upon your heart, [O Muhammad], by permission of Allah, confirming that which was before it and as guidance and good tidings for the believers."    ( Read more ...   سورة البقرة  , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #97) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (2) The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.    (  سورة البقرة  , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #185) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (3) Before, as guidance for the people. And He revealed the Qur'an. Indeed, those who disbelieve in the verses of Allah will have a severe punishment, and Allah is exalted in Might, the Owner of Retribution.    (  سورة آل عمران  , Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #4) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (4) Then do they not reflect upon the Qur'an? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction.    (  سورة النساء  , An-Nisa, Chapter #4, Verse #82) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (5) O you who have believed, fulfill [all] contracts. Lawful for you are the animals of grazing livestock except for that which is recited to you [in this Qur'an] - hunting not being permitted while you are in the state of ihram. Indeed, Allah ordains what He intends.    (  سورة المائدة  , Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #1) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (6) O you who have believed, do not ask about things which, if they are shown to you, will distress you. But if you ask about them while the Qur'an is being revealed, they will be shown to you. Allah has pardoned that which is past; and Allah is Forgiving and Forbearing.    (  سورة المائدة  , Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #101) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (7) Say, "What thing is greatest in testimony?" Say, "Allah is witness between me and you. And this Qur'an was revealed to me that I may warn you thereby and whomever it reaches. Do you [truly] testify that with Allah there are other deities?" Say, "I will not testify [with you]." Say, "Indeed, He is but one God, and indeed, I am free of what you associate [with Him]."    (  سورة الأنعام  , Al-Anaam, Chapter #6, Verse #19) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (8) And warn by the Qur'an those who fear that they will be gathered before their Lord - for them besides Him will be no protector and no intercessor - that they might become righteous.    (  سورة الأنعام  , Al-Anaam, Chapter #6, Verse #51) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (9) And leave those who take their religion as amusement and diversion and whom the worldly life has deluded. But remind with the Qur'an, lest a soul be given up to destruction for what it earned; it will have other than Allah no protector and no intercessor. And if it should offer every compensation, it would not be taken from it. Those are the ones who are given to destruction for what they have earned. For them will be a drink of scalding water and a painful punishment because they used to disbelieve.    (  سورة الأنعام  , Al-Anaam, Chapter #6, Verse #70) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (10) And thus do We diversify the verses so the disbelievers will say, "You have studied," and so We may make the Qur'an clear for a people who know.    (  سورة الأنعام  , Al-Anaam, Chapter #6, Verse #105) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (11) So when the Qur'an is recited, then listen to it and pay attention that you may receive mercy.    (  سورة الأعراف  , Al-Araf, Chapter #7, Verse #204) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (12) Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties [in exchange] for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed. [It is] a true promise [binding] upon Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur'an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? So rejoice in your transaction which you have contracted. And it is that which is the great attainment.    (  سورة التوبة  , At-Taubah, Chapter #9, Verse #111) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (13) And when Our verses are recited to them as clear evidences, those who do not expect the meeting with Us say, "Bring us a Qur'an other than this or change it." Say, [O Muhammad], "It is not for me to change it on my own accord. I only follow what is revealed to me. Indeed I fear, if I should disobey my Lord, the punishment of a tremendous Day."    (  سورة يونس  , Yunus, Chapter #10, Verse #15) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (14) And it was not [possible] for this Qur'an to be produced by other than Allah, but [it is] a confirmation of what was before it and a detailed explanation of the [former] Scripture, about which there is no doubt, from the Lord of the worlds.    (  سورة يونس  , Yunus, Chapter #10, Verse #37) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (15) And, [O Muhammad], you are not [engaged] in any matter or recite any of the Qur'an and you [people] do not do any deed except that We are witness over you when you are involved in it. And not absent from your Lord is any [part] of an atom's weight within the earth or within the heaven or [anything] smaller than that or greater but that it is in a clear register.    (  سورة يونس  , Yunus, Chapter #10, Verse #61) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (16) And if they do not respond to you - then know that the Qur'an was revealed with the knowledge of Allah and that there is no deity except Him. Then, would you [not] be Muslims?    (  سورة هود  , Hud, Chapter #11, Verse #14) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (17) So is one who [stands] upon a clear evidence from his Lord [like the aforementioned]? And a witness from Him follows it, and before it was the Scripture of Moses to lead and as mercy. Those [believers in the former revelations] believe in the Qur'an. But whoever disbelieves in it from the [various] factions - the Fire is his promised destination. So be not in doubt about it. Indeed, it is the truth from your Lord, but most of the people do not believe.    (  سورة هود  , Hud, Chapter #11, Verse #17) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (18) And We had certainly given Moses the Scripture, but it came under disagreement. And if not for a word that preceded from your Lord, it would have been judged between them. And indeed they are, concerning the Qur'an, in disquieting doubt.    (  سورة هود  , Hud, Chapter #11, Verse #110) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (19) Indeed, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an that you might understand.    (  سورة يوسف  , Yusuf, Chapter #12, Verse #2) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (20) We relate to you, [O Muhammad], the best of stories in what We have revealed to you of this Qur'an although you were, before it, among the unaware.    (  سورة يوسف  , Yusuf, Chapter #12, Verse #3) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (21) There was certainly in their stories a lesson for those of understanding. Never was the Qur'an a narration invented, but a confirmation of what was before it and a detailed explanation of all things and guidance and mercy for a people who believe.    (  سورة يوسف  , Yusuf, Chapter #12, Verse #111) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (22) And if there was any qur'an by which the mountains would be removed or the earth would be broken apart or the dead would be made to speak, [it would be this Qur'an], but to Allah belongs the affair entirely. Then have those who believed not accepted that had Allah willed, He would have guided the people, all of them? And those who disbelieve do not cease to be struck, for what they have done, by calamity - or it will descend near their home - until there comes the promise of Allah. Indeed, Allah does not fail in [His] promise.    (  سورة الرعد  , Ar-Rad, Chapter #13, Verse #31) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (23) Alif, Lam, Ra. These are the verses of the Book and a clear Qur'an.    (  سورة الحجر  , Al-Hijr, Chapter #15, Verse #1) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (24) Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian.    (  سورة الحجر  , Al-Hijr, Chapter #15, Verse #9) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (25) And We have certainly given you, [O Muhammad], seven of the often repeated [verses] and the great Qur'an.    (  سورة الحجر  , Al-Hijr, Chapter #15, Verse #87) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (26) Who have made the Qur'an into portions.    (  سورة الحجر  , Al-Hijr, Chapter #15, Verse #91) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (27) So when you recite the Qur'an, [first] seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the expelled [from His mercy].    (  سورة النحل  , An-Nahl, Chapter #16, Verse #98) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (28) And We certainly know that they say, "It is only a human being who teaches the Prophet." The tongue of the one they refer to is foreign, and this Qur'an is [in] a clear Arabic language.    (  سورة النحل  , An-Nahl, Chapter #16, Verse #103) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (29) Indeed, this Qur'an guides to that which is most suitable and gives good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a great reward.    (  سورة الإسراء  , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #9) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (30) And We have certainly diversified [the contents] in this Qur'an that mankind may be reminded, but it does not increase the disbelievers except in aversion.    (  سورة الإسراء  , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #41) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (31) And when you recite the Qur'an, We put between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter a concealed partition.    (  سورة الإسراء  , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #45) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (32) And We have placed over their hearts coverings, lest they understand it, and in their ears deafness. And when you mention your Lord alone in the Qur'an, they turn back in aversion.    (  سورة الإسراء  , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #46) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (33) And [remember, O Muhammad], when We told you, "Indeed, your Lord has encompassed the people." And We did not make the sight which We showed you except as a trial for the people, as was the accursed tree [mentioned] in the Qur'an. And We threaten them, but it increases them not except in great transgression.    (  سورة الإسراء  , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #60) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (34) Establish prayer at the decline of the sun [from its meridian] until the darkness of the night and [also] the Qur'an of dawn. Indeed, the recitation of dawn is ever witnessed.    (  سورة الإسراء  , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #78) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (35) And We send down of the Qur'an that which is healing and mercy for the believers, but it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss.    (  سورة الإسراء  , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #82) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (36) Say, "If mankind and the jinn gathered in order to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could not produce the like of it, even if they were to each other assistants."    (  سورة الإسراء  , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #88) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (37) And We have certainly diversified for the people in this Qur'an from every [kind] of example, but most of the people refused [anything] except disbelief.    (  سورة الإسراء  , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #89) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (38) And with the truth We have sent the Qur'an down, and with the truth it has descended. And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a bringer of good tidings and a warner.    (  سورة الإسراء  , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #105) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (39) And [it is] a Qur'an which We have separated [by intervals] that you might recite it to the people over a prolonged period. And We have sent it down progressively.    (  سورة الإسراء  , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #106) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (40) And they fall upon their faces weeping, and the Qur'an increases them in humble submission.    (  سورة الإسراء  , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #109) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (41) And We have certainly diversified in this Qur'an for the people from every [kind of] example; but man has ever been, most of anything, [prone to] dispute.    (  سورة الكهف  , Al-Kahf, Chapter #18, Verse #54) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (42) So, [O Muhammad], We have only made Qur'an easy in the Arabic language that you may give good tidings thereby to the righteous and warn thereby a hostile people.    (  سورة مريم  , Maryam, Chapter #19, Verse #97) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (43) We have not sent down to you the Qur'an that you be distressed    (  سورة طه  , Taha, Chapter #20, Verse #2) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (44) Thus, [O Muhammad], We relate to you from the news of what has preceded. And We have certainly given you from Us the Qur'an.    (  سورة طه  , Taha, Chapter #20, Verse #99) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (45) And thus We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an and have diversified therein the warnings that perhaps they will avoid [sin] or it would cause them remembrance.    (  سورة طه  , Taha, Chapter #20, Verse #113) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (46) So high [above all] is Allah, the Sovereign, the Truth.

Thus [it is] that We may strengthen thereby your heart. And We have spaced it distinctly.    (  سورة الفرقان  , Al-Furqan, Chapter #25, Verse #32) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (51) So do not obey the disbelievers, and strive against them with the Qur'an a great striving.    (  سورة الفرقان  , Al-Furqan, Chapter #25, Verse #52) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (52) And indeed, the Qur'an is the revelation of the Lord of the worlds.    (  سورة الشعراء  , Ash-Shuara, Chapter #26, Verse #192) (Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu (Ahmed Ali) , Urdu (Jalandhry) , Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay, German, Bosnian, Russian, Tafsir - Jalal ad-Din, Tafsir - King Fahad Quran Complex) (53) Ta, Seen.

Q: Can you give me some of the names of your colleagues with whom you received training in Libya and Pakistan? A: They are scattered all over the country and we were not too many then. Q: Just mention but a few names. A: Ali Baba Nur, Asari Dokubo, Jasper Akinbo, Mohammed Yusuf, Salisu Maigari, Danlami Abubakar, Cletus Okar, Ali Qaqa, Maigari Haliru and Asabe Dantala to mention but a few. Q: Which of the Asari’s do you mean? A: The Niger Delta war king. He was a year ahead of me in Benghazi training camp in Libya. Q: Who financed your training in Libya and Pakistan? A: You will not believe me and only God will judge the Chief sponsor of terrorism in Nigeria whose name I will not mention because he is so powerful and even the president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, is so much afraid of the man. Q: If you really know the Christ in you, why are you afraid to tell me the name of the man who sponsored you and the date or approximate period he sponsored you. A: I am not afraid because he knows me and he cannot deny it if he sees me face to face. Q: Then tell me, who is this powerful man? A: The man is no other person than the man they call IBB now as I am talking to you, General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida has more than 600 men and women Jihadists who are under his pay role. They are scattered all over the Country and he (IBB) can use them to destroy Nigeria. Q: Did you say six hundred? A: Yes 600 + IBB’s agents of destruction are in the Nigeria Army (NA), Nigeria Police Force (NPF), Navy, Air Force, Oil and Gas sectors, even in the finance home such as in top level positions of CBN (Central Bank of Nigeria) and other banks. You find them in politics, in the Senate, National Assembly, in the media both print and electronic and even in Aso Rock, Abuja (Nigeria’s capital). Q: How do you mean by this statement “and even in the finance…”? A: Yes, I mean every word I say; even the Islamic bank champion was planted by IBB to help in Islamizing Nigeria. Q: So how can you describe IBB? A: IBB is a “green snake” in green grass. He is the main problem of Nigeria along with members of the Cabal. Q: Have you forwarded any of these evidence(s) to Aso Rock or to SSS (State Security Services)? A: I attempted to do so a few weeks ago and I was arrested and detained for two days because IBB’S men are so many in SSS (State Security Services) as well. After I was released by the grace of God, they (the Police) warned me never to blow up the polity or provoke violence and I should keep my so-called born-again with me or else I will go to jail. Q: So you were a key member and a registered jihadist hardliner. A: Yes, I was. Q: Under what group? A: I was a Boko Haramist. But Boko Haram is just a cover name to give it a name. I have my identity as a founding member of the dreaded jama’aful Ahlul sunna wal Liddawati wal Jihad, aka Boko Haram. Q: Apart from IBB, who are the other top sponsors of terrorism in this country? A: They are many, but IBB is the major financier. He introduced the suicide bombing that started when he killed Dele Giwa. I have the names of six traditional rulers and seven present & ex- Governors as well as several top military and security officers who are co-sponsoring the so called Boko Haram.

Yusuf Bukhari 2015: Desperate politicians have taken over —Tambuwal •Reps in closed-door session over Boko Haram Caliphate in North-East AHEAD the 2015 election, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Honourable Aminu Tambuwal, on Tuesday, tasked members Read more ... of the House to comport themselves in a manner worthy of true representatives of their people, stressing that “the election year is still unborn as far as the prescriptions of the Electoral Act and INEC Regulations and Guidelines are concerned, but for some, desperation has already taken over.” The Speaker, who stated this in his speech during the commencement of the fourth and final session of the seventh session of National Assembly, added that “this is the period that will test our resolve of faithfulness to the execution of our mandate and the competing interest of our personal aspiration.” He then charged the members that “as we conduct ourselves with due regard to the serious security challenge of insurgency and terrorism with bloodletting on the rise and the general volatile political atmosphere, the people should be our prime focus, because without the people, there will be no country and, therefore, nothing to represent or to govern.” According to him, “it is a matter for grave concern that the insurgency in the North-Eastern states of the country has graduated from sporadic acts of violence to an alarming situation, where acquisition of territory has become the main focus, thus threatening our territorial integrity. “I seize this opportunity to commend our military and the security agencies for their gallant determination in flushing out insurgency. Our troops need full kitting, equipment and motivation which meet current international standards, so as to insulate them from avoidable loss of lives, limbs and also to meet the force of the offensive. “The proposal by the Federal Government to establish a Special Forces Unit to deal with insurgency and terrorism is welcome news, one worthy of commendation. I am confident that the resolve of government in this regard will deliver the desired dividends in terms of acquisition of operational expertise.” On the Ebola virus, he said “in response a special ad hoc committee on Ebola is, hereby, instituted with the mandate to work closely with the Ministry of Health and the six-man committee on Ebola to enhance legislative liaison and to provide all the requisite legislative support for the success of the project. I also urge all my colleagues, staff and, indeed, the National Assembly, to observe and promote the message of personal hygiene and environmental sanitation.” One issue of electronic voting in the House, he said: “As members are aware this is one of the high points of our legislative agenda document, the system has been fully installed, yet manual voting continues. We need not enumerate the importance of legislative voting to both the legislator as a record of reference and self-assessment and the electorate as an accurate means of assessing their representatives on general performance as well as legislative disposition. Meanwhile, the House of Representatives, on Tuesday, held a closed-door session for several hours over the Boko Haram insurgents’ alleged declaration of Caliphate in the North-Eastern part of the country. The insurgents were said to have taken over some local governments in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states. Before the House dissolved into executive session, a member, Honourable Tairu Monguno, from Borno State, had in a motion under national urgent public importance, told the House that the dreaded sect, Boko Haram, were now in control of seven local government areas in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states. According to Honourable Monguno, Boko Haram memnbers had established its caliphate in those areas and were moving freely, harassing citizens, as soldiers in those areas had been over powered. In Borno State, the insurgents had taken over and hoisted their flags in Gwoza, Gamboru-Ngala and Banki, local government areas. Bama and Damboa, which were earlier taken over by the insurgents, had been reclaimed by the military. In Adamawa State, the insurgents are in control of Michika and Gulak local government areas, while in Yobe State, they have taken over Buni-Yadi Local Government Area. Furthermore, he said that our military were well armed, but were not performing because they were not motivated. He urged the the House to call on the Federal Government to mobilise and clear the insurgents from this area, as people were living with fear. Adding that many local governments in northern Borno and other parts were gradually coming under the control of the Boko Haram, stating that such local government share international boundaries with Niger, Cameroon and Chad. He said most governent officials had fled the area, while the members of the Boko Haram operated freely unhindered in military camouflage uniform. Speaker of the House, Tambuwal announced a closed door session for the House to be properly briefed and after the session, it resolved that the House Committee on Defence should liaise with that of Senate Committee on Defence to faction ways to assist the Federal Government in nabbing the insurgents. He also said an ad hoc committee would be set up to get relief materials for Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states.

Yahaya Yusuf Eneh A student looks over at the damage to a lecture hall at the Federal College of Education in the northern Nigerian city of Kano, on September 17, 2014, following an attack by Boko Haram gunmen who stormed the lecture hall opening fire on students, kil Read more ... ling 13 and injuring 34. One attacker was shot dead by police and another died after an explosive belt he was wearing detonated, according to the police. AFP PHOTO In a related development, an Improvised Explosive Device, IED, thrown into a lecture hall at the Federal College of Education, Kano, yesterday, claimed the lives of 15 students while 34 others sustained injuries. According to an eyewitness, lecture was going on when two terrorists walked in and threw two objects that exploded within seconds. The blast was accompanied by sporadic gun shots as some of the gunmen, who were stationed outside the lecture hall,opened fire on some of the students who tried to escape from the scene. The incident that occurred around 2.00pm at the school’s new site located at Gadon Kaya triggered pandemonium as students, lecturers and visitors to the school scampered for safety. Also in the neighbourhood, residents locked up their houses, while shop owners in the vicinity hurriedly closed businesses as confusion reigned. The prompt response of security agents at the nearest check point however saved the day as they engaged the gunmen and shot two of them to death. Addressing newsmen at the scene of the incident, the Kano Commissioner of Police, Adenrele Shinaba confirmed that “15 died, while 34 were injured”. Shinaba disclosed that two among the dead were the attackers gunned down by his men in an exchange of fire, explaining that those injured have been taken to a government hospital in the city. The police boss said: “We have recovered two AK-47 assault rifles from the assailants”, pointing out that the command has launched a massive manhunt to track down other fleeing suspects. Meanwhile, President Goodluck Jonathan has assured the people of Kano State and all Nigerians that the Federal Government was doing everything possible to increase the capacity of the nation’s security services to prevent attacks on innocent citizens by terrorists. Jonathan condoles with victims’ families In a statement on the attack on students, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati quoted the president as commiserating with the families of those who lost their lives while praying for the quick recovery of those who sustained injuries. The statement read in part: “President Jonathan commiserates with citizens and residents of Kano State on the loss of lives during the attack by terrorists on the Federal College of Education, Kano. “President Jonathan’s sympathies and best wishes for a speedy recovery are also with all those who suffered injuries in the dastardly attack. “The President commends the officers and men of the Nigerian Police Force who took prompt action to confront the attackers and minimize resultant casualties. “He urges them to be even more alert and proactive in the future to stop terrorist attacks in Kano and other parts of the country. “President Jonathan reassures the people of Kano and all Nigerians that the Federal Government continues to do all within its powers to further enhance the ability of the Police, Armed Forces and other security agencies to prosecute the war against terrorism to a successful conclusion and provide greater security of lives and property across the country”. Fulani gunmen kill 32 in Kaduna villages Also, after what looks like a brief respite, suspected Fulani gunmen have again attacked three communities in Sanga Local Government Area, in the Southern part of Kaduna State, killing 32 villagers, after killing a soldier and injuring four other soldiers in an ambush. This was disclosed by Mr Bezard Wuyah, National President, Ninzom Development Youths, NPY. Spokesman of Kaduna State Police Command, DSP, Amuni Lawan, who confirmed the attack, however said he was yet to get the full brief of the latest incident at press time. Speaking to Vanguard on phone, Bezard said: “We heard before now that Fulanis were planning to attack us again. They came last night around 1am, and attacked Fadan Karshi, Karshi Daji and Unguwan Ganye which were close to one another in Sanga LGA. “They first ambushed a military patrol van that was crossing a bridge from Fadan Karshi to Karshi Daji. They fired at the soldiers and killed one, and four were injured. But the soldiers repelled the attacks. The Fulani men then moved in three groups. One went to Fadan Karshi, where they killed 12 people, burnt down 20 houses and injured scores. They moved to Karshi Daji, killed 20 people and burnt down several houses. Those that attacked Unguwan Ganye are still in the place, so we can not tell you the casualty figure now. But among those killed in Fadan Karshi was the wife of a very respectable retired clergyman, Rev. Jacob Aku. His wife was burnt to ashes in the attack.” “We need serious protection and security from our government or we will be forced to protect ourselves”, he said. It will be recalled that in June there was relentless assault for a week in which not less than 160 villagers in seven Ninzom villages, in Sanga Local Government Area, LGA, of Kaduna state were killed, and some of the villages razed.

My Cricket Lounge High drama, it seems, can never be too far from a Kolkata Knight Riders batting effort. Ten overs into the 158-run chase against Chennai Super Kings, it seemed as if the Knight Riders of the infamous batting meltdowns had shown up to play. The absen Read more ... ce of Robin Uthappa and Jacques Kallis left plenty of volatility to go around. Within a period of 16 balls between the third and the fifth overs, Knight Riders lurched haplessly from 9 for 0 to 9 for 2 and then 21 for 4. Ashish Nehra took three of those wickets, including two off two in the third over. Soon, Suryakumar Yadav was gone and Knight Riders were 51 for 5. And then Ryan ten Doeschate and Andre Russell pulled off a heist. Knight Riders went into the last 10 overs needing 98 runs; they won with an over to spare. The scorecard will show the pair added 80 runs in 45 balls but the numbers fall short of describing the brutality with which ten Doeschate and Russell accumulated the runs. Russell, in particular, has played a few innings like this for Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League and it was his charge in the 11th over from Ravindra Jadeja that signalled the change in the game. Russell smacked two sixes and a four in a 17-run over to temper the required run-rate and give Knight Riders room to breathe. Thereon, the pair did not allow the Super Kings bowlers to pile on the pressure. Dwayne Bravo bowled a couple of quiet overs but the batsmen controlled the run-rate well, taking 18 off the 16th over to drag the equation down to a winnable 32 off 24. The game was decidedly in Knight Riders' hands and although they lost two wickets towards the end, there was little Super Kings could do to wrest the advantage back. Where Russell's fifty was all power - he finished with a strike rate of 232 - ten Doeschate was calmer, turning the strike repeatedly but finding the boundary at the right moment in an over. He continued in the same vein after Russell fell, and brought up his fifty with a six in the final over of the match. Earlier, the experience of MS Dhoni and Bravo lifted Super Kings to 157 after the side had threatened to fall into a rut against Knight Riders' spin attack. The pair changed gears effortlessly to rack up 70 in the last seven overs, after the spin trio of Piyush Chawla, Sunil Narine and Yusuf Pathan had nullified a brisk start from Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum. A couple of close calls also went Knight Riders' way, specially the dismissals of McCullum, Suresh Raina and Faf du Plessis. McCullum was given out lbw to Pathan although a replay showed that the ball had missed his pad and hit his hand. Raina was given out lbw to Narine even as replays were uncertain over whether it was a no-ball. Du Plessis was given out stumped off Chawla as replays showed that his foot was marginally in the air when Manvinder Bisla whipped the bails off. http://www.clt20.com/teams/kolkata-knight-riders/

The Dimka's Coup Attempt of February 13, 1976 By Nowa Omoigui nowa_o@yahoo.com Just before 8:30 a.m. on February 13, 1976, the following curious announcement was heard on Radio Nigeria: "Good morning fellow Nigerians, This is Lt. Col. B. Dimka of the Read more ... Nigerian Army calling. I bring you good tidings. Murtala Muhammed's deficiency has been detected. His government is now overthrown by the young revolutionaries. All the 19 military governors have no powers over the states they now govern. The states affairs will be run by military brigade commanders until further notice. All commissioners are sacked, except for the armed forces and police commissioners who will be redeployed. All senior military officers should remain calm in their respective spots. No divisional commanders will issue orders or instructions until further notice. Any attempt to foil these plans from any quarters will be met with death. You are warned, it is all over the 19 states. Any acts of looting or raids will be death. Everyone should be calm. Please stay by your radio for further announcements. All borders, air and sea ports are closed until further notice. Curfew is imposed from 6am to 6pm. Thank you. We are all together." Just prior to this broadcast, then Head of State, General Murtala Ramat Muhammed, along with his ADC (Lt. Akinsehinwa), Orderly and driver, had been assassinated on his way to work in a thin skinned black Mercedes Benz car without escorts. The unprotected car had slowed down at the junction in front of the Federal Secretariat in Ikoyi, Lagos, when a hit team which allegedly included Lt. William Seri and others, casually strolled up and riddled it with bullets. Following confirmation of Muhammed's death, Lt. Col. Buka Suka Dimka, of the Army Physical Training Corps, who (along with some others) had been up for most of the night drinking champagne, then made a quick trip to the British High Commission at about 8 am where he demanded to be put in touch with General Gowon in Britain. He allegedly left a message through Sir Martin LeQuesne, saying Gowon should proceed to Togo and await further instructions. Then he returned, initially accompanied by six others, to Ikoyi to seize the Radio Station. The martial music played was allegedly specially selected by a civilian worker, Mr. Abdulkarim Zakari, who had been alerted beforehand to do so. Other hit teams simultaneously went after other key functionaries of the regime's trioka, namely the Chief of Staff, SHQ, Lt. Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo and the Army Chief, Lt. Gen. T. Y. Danjuma. The Military Governors of Kwara and Oyo States, Colonels Ibrahim Taiwo and David Jemibewon, respectively, were also targeted. Taiwo, who had been the national coordinator of the July 1975 coup that brought Mohammed to power, was abducted and killed by a team led by Major K. K. Gagara. Jemibewon, whose name had been added to the list of targets by Lt. Col T. K. Adamu, merely because Adamu "did not like his face", escaped. In response to a pro-coup broadcast (and other activities) from Benin-City by the Brigade Commander, Colonel Isa Bukar, counter- broadcasts dissociating other army units from the coup were made, first from Calabar by the Brigade Commander, Colonel Mamman J. Vatsa, and then from Kaduna on behalf of the GOC, Brigadier Alani Akinrinade. As efforts were being made within the military to crush the revolt, University students in Lagos and Ibadan (among others) took to the streets to protest the coup. Later, when it became known that Dimka had visited the British High Commission on the day of the coup, some students attacked British and American facilities in Lagos. The coup attempt eventually failed seven hours later, crushed by forces rallied and directed from a temporary base at Bonny camp by Lt. General T. Y. Danjuma, Chief of Army Staff, whose designated assassin (reportedly Lt. Lawrence Garba) had chosen at the last moment to spare him at the Marina Jetty, allegedly in part to avoid collateral casualties. When Danjuma got to the office and heard the radio broadcast, he held a brief "war council" with Colonels Bali and Babangida, then moved to Bonny camp to coordinate the resistance. Babangida was sent on a motor cycle to Ikeja Cantonment to get armoured vehicles. Supported by these vehicles he proceeded to Radio Nigeria, where he had a conversation with his close friend Dimka. Dimka's initial reaction to Babangida's arrival was to ask him if he came to play "Chukwuma and Nwawo" with him; drawing a historical parallel with the negotiations between Colonel Conrad Nwawo (on behalf of Ironsi) and Major Patrick Nzeogwu in Kaduna in January 1966. However, Dimka got concerned with the presence of armored vehicles in the background and asked them to be withdrawn. But it turns out that Babangida's orders had not been to negotiate a surrender or other outcome, but to stop the broadcast - by any means necessary - including destruction by shelling. When he made contact with Bonny Camp to report his activities at the radio station, this order was reiterated to him by General Danjuma, incredulous that a conversation with Dimka had even occurred and that the radio station was still playing Dimka's broadcast. A brief but fierce fire fight (reportedly led by Major Chris Ugokwe) subsequently dislodged the coup plotters from the station. When shooting started Dimka simply walked away, past all the soldiers surrounding the building as well as driving through numerous checkpoints on his way, first to Jos and then eventually to Abakaliki where he was captured by Police in the company of a woman of easy virtue. At that time, public incredulity at his "escape" from Radio Nigeria led to speculations that he was assisted. But many years later, in April 1990, a similar 'escape' from a siege of supposedly loyal troops was executed by Lt. Col. Gabriel Nyiam and Major Saliba Mukoro. General Olusegun Obasanjo (rtd) has written that he was late in leaving home that day on account of a visit by Brigadier Olu Bajowa to get a name for his new baby. When it became apparent that there was trouble, Obasanjo executed an escape and evasion maneuver, spent most of the day at the house of a civilian friend in Ikoyi monitoring the situation by telephone, but later emerged to become the Head of State. His would be assassins mistook then Colonel Dumuje for him along Awolowo road in Lagos, seriously wounding that officer. The specifics of how that happened remain a matter of conjecture particularly since the car of a Lt. General would have had three stars mounted on the license plate. Whether Dumuje was riding in Obasanjo's car is a curious possibility that has never been clarified. Or perhaps the hit men were drunk and could not tell one flag from another. Subsequent evidence, allegedly based on documents and tapes discovered at the station, suggests that Dimka had actually planned a second broadcast which he never got to make. The broadcast would have gone like this: "Fellow Nigerians, This is Lt. Col. BS Dimka. I now explain why we the Young Revolutionaries of the Armed Forces have found it necessary to overthrow the six month old government of Murtala. On the 29th July 1975 the Government of General Gowon was overthrown. Some of the reasons given for the change were: a. Corruption b. Indecision c. Arrest and detention without trial d. Weakness on the part of the Head of State e. Maladministration in general and a host of other malpractice. Every honest Nigerian will agree with me that since the change over of government there has not been any physical development in the whole country generally. All we have is arbitrary dismissal of innocent Nigerians who have contributed in no less amount to the building of this great nation. A Professor was arrested, detained, dismissed and later taken to court on an article which every honest Nigerian will agree that all the points contained in that article were 100% truth. The sad point about it all is that those who initiated the retirement or dismissal exercise are the worst offenders. You will be informed about the ill-gotten wealth in my next announcement. The acting General Manager of the Nigerian Airways was invited to the Dodan Barracks and detained without trial. The people of this country have been living in a state of fear. The Armed Forces promotion exercise is still fresh in your minds. Whatever reasons they have for the promotion one can only say that they are ambitious. They in fact took over power to enrich themselves. We are convinced that some of the programmes announced for a return to civilian rule are made to favor a particular group. To mention only one. Maitama Sule is a politician. But has been appointed Chief of Commissioners for Complaints. This is to prepare him for the next political head at all cost. How many of you know that Maitama Sule is on a salary of N17,000 p.a.? In view of what I have just said and a lot more which time will not permit me to mention, we the Young Revolutionaries have once again taken over the Government to save Murtala from total disgrace and prevent him from committing further blunders and totally collapsing the country before he runs away in the name of retirement to enjoy the huge fortune he got through bribe which he has now stored outside this country. I believe that charity should begin at home. Please stay by your radio for further announcements. We are all together." The Obasanjo regime, however, later issued a public statement proffering its own explanation for the Dimka coup attempt. The four reasons given by the government were that : 1. The plotters felt the Murtala government was abandoning Nigeria's traditional non-aligned posture and going "communist". 2. The plotters were opposed to recent Army promotions and the appointment of Danjuma as Army Chief. 3. The plotters intended to restore General Gowon to office 4. The plotters intended to restore all previous military governors to office, as well as restore all retired public servants back to office. Any subsequent retirement was to be based on legal due process. (As of that time about 11,000 civil servants and over 200 army officers had been summarily retired across the country) Seven days of national mourning were declared and flags flew at half mast. Following up on the opinion of the Obasanjo regime at the time, that General Gowon "knew and by implication, approved" of the plot (based on Dimka's testimony regarding a brief encounter during a trip he had earlier made to London), a formal request for him to be extradited from Britain was made on March 24, 1976. General Gowon himself strongly denied the charge. The British government rejected the extradition request and made it plain through back-channels that if the Nigerian government insisted too strongly on getting Gowon back, Nigerian leaders should be prepared to deal with British coldness if (as individuals) they one day found themselves in exile. Publicly, diplomatic relations with Britain, however, took a nose dive and Gowon, without trial, was dismissed as an officer (albeit retired) in the Nigerian Armed Forces. (He was later reinstated by President Shagari). As expected, mass arrests were made after the coup failed, not just of active duty and retired soldiers, but also civilians. Major C.D. Dabang, an inner circle officer who had pleaded with Dimka to delay the coup until he was well enough to take part, was still undergoing treatment at the Military Hospital in Lagos when soldiers arrived, disconnected his drip and took him away. Many important figures of the Gowon era were arrested and quizzed. There is at least one, known to this author, who is very lucky to be alive today. At least two Boards of Inquiry sat (including those chaired by Brigadiers Obada and Eromobor). Death sentences passed by a separate Special Military Tribunal were confirmed by the Supreme Military Council. However, it remains unclear to this day to what extent certain individuals who were shot were actually involved in the Dimka coup. Among others, Col A.D.S. Wya is frequently mentioned. The first batch of executions was announced by Brigadier Shehu Yar'Adua, who had just been double promoted from the rank of Lt. Col. He went on television (Channel 10) to say "They are being shot about now". This was followed the next morning by a gleeful headline in the Daily Times that read: "Thirty-Two shot in Round One". Another batch, including Dimka himself, was to follow later. However, two NCOs, Sergeant Clement Yildar and Corporal Dauda Usman escaped and were never found. They were declared wanted. To this day, they have not (to my knowledge) surfaced. Those executed included: 1. Major General I.D. Bisalla (Defence Commissioner) 2. Joseph Gomwalk (Ex-Governor of Benue- Plateau) 3. Col. A.D.S. Wya 4. Col Isa Bukar 5. Lt. Col. T.K. Adamu 6. Lt. Col A.B. Umoru 7. Lt. Col B.S. Dimka 8. Lt. Col. Ayuba Tense 9. Major C.D. Dabang 10. Major Ola Ogunmekan 11. Major J.W. Kasai 12. Major J.K. Afolabi 13. Major M.M. Mshelia 14. Major I.B. Rabo 15. Major K.K. Gagara 16. Capt. M.R. Gotip 17. Capt. M. Parvwang 18. Capt. J.F. Idi 19. Capt. A.A. Aliyu 20. Capt. S. Wakian 21. Capt. Austin Dawurang 22. Lt. A.R. Aliyu 23. Lt. William Seril 24. Lt. Mohammed 25. Lt. E.L.K. Shelleng 26. Lt. O. Zagmi 27. Lt. S. Wayah 28. Lt. S. Kwale 29. Lt. Peter Cigari 30. Lt. Lawrence Garba 31. Seven (7) non-commissioned officers 32. Mr. Abdulakarim Zakari (civilian broadcaster) Others were retired or dismissed or imprisoned. General Gowon's relatives in the armed forces were hounded out or jailed. But in 1981 a former member of the SMC, Lt. Gen Alani Akinrinade (rtd) openly admitted in an interview with the Punch newspaper that there wasn't a strong case against General Gowon. SOME SHORT AND LONG TERM CONSEQUENCES Although the new Obasanjo led team that came to office (against Obasanjo's "personal wish and desire") pledged to continue along the footsteps of Muhammed, the so-called Dimka coup had lasting military and non-military, judicial, domestic and foreign policy effects. It was the first time since the executions of Banjo, Ifeajuna, Alale and Agbam on September 25, 1967 in Enugu, by Ojukwu, that anyone was being executed for that alleged offence within Nigeria's colonial borders. It led to the promulgation - by the Obasanjo regime - of certain retrospective decrees which made 'concealment of treason' an offence punishable with a life sentence and created new "Special Military Tribunal" laws justifying mass executions for coup participation which have remained with us until the recent initiative in the Legislature. Indeed, when General Obasanjo (rtd) was tried in 1995 on suspicion of concealment of treason by the Abacha regime, it was the law he signed into effect just under 20 years before, which was pulled off the shelf and used to charge him. It later emerged that the charge was frivolous and he was lucky to survive the Abacha gulag. However, it did not escape notice that others charged under that decree in the past may not have been so lucky. Indeed notions of Treason and Treasonable felony in Nigerian Military Tribunal Law and their consistency with the governing laws of Nigeria still need to be revisited. And the complex intrigues of the coup investigative process also need to be addressed. There are people who were officially cleared of all charges relating to the Dimka coup in 1976 who still barely escaped getting shot "on contract" at Kiri-Kiri prison. The Dimka coup was a national security embarrassment. Efforts by then Inspector General of Police, MD Yusuf, to resign were rebuffed. But the coup led directly to the creation of the National Security Organization (NSO), whose first Director, then Brigadier Abdulai Mohammed was recalled from his post as a Governor. However, the existence (since 1976) of the NSO and its by- product, the SSS, has not stopped coups in Nigeria, as events since then have demonstrated. Except for the use of Peugeot cars, the so called "low profile" policy of the Muhammed regime was largely jettisoned. Key figures became better protected by accompanying troops. The Brigade of Guards was disbanded and new troops rotated in. The leadership style of the regime changed. Muhammed's hard charging, occasionally impulsive style was replaced by a steadier and level headed but still dictatorial approach. Then Brigadier Shehu Yar'Adua's new role in the Trioka as Chief of Staff, SHQ, launched him into his subsequent national political career when he left office. Other relationships forged in the trials and tribulations of the painful events surrounding the Dimka coup were to last for many years after - such as that between President Olusegun Obasanjo, his Defence Minister, Lt. Gen. TY Danjuma (rtd) and his Chief of Staff, Major General Abdulai Mohammed (rtd). Although already known for toughness from his July 1966 and civil war days, General Danjuma's stature as "the man in charge of the Army" was reinforced by his bold leadership during the coup. Indeed, he could quite easily have taken over the country if he wanted - assuming meanings would not have been read into it by geopolitical pundits. Then Colonel Ibrahim Babangida became a pop hero for supposedly flushing Dimka out of Radio Nigeria, although the exact nature of his 'negotiation' with Dimka at NBC was never clarified. He was to emerge again on the national scene in 1983 and 1985. It was not until an interview in the Guardian with Lt. Col G. Nyiam in April 2000, that the unsung role of Col. Chris Ugokwe (rtd) at the radio station that day in 1976 became public knowledge. The diplomatic effects, particularly on Anglo- Nigerian relations, have been discussed. Both countries recalled their ambassadors and it was not until 1979 that the resident Nigerian High Commissioner in London was replaced. Domestically, the coup crystallized political tensions between the Moslem far north and the Christian middle belt which were not altogether new, but have persisted in one form or another. As can be recognized, most of those executed were of Plateau State origin. But the curious notion of a 'Plateau group' in the Army never did die. It resurrected many years later as the "Langtang Mafia". Lastly, it made the late General Murtala Muhammed a hero. According to General James Oluleye who was then Finance Commissioner, quite apart from a state burial, naming monuments after him and fulfilling obligations for his pension and gratuity as a Four Star General, the government infused a large amount of cash directly into his estate to protect his family from future financial embarrassment............ To many Dimka just like Orkar remains a hero of the Middle Belt. Many also were appalled by the mass executions of Middle Belt officers,once just like the Orkar coup. what is your take?
