Types Of Muslims You’ll Find When Sallah Comes

August 21, 2018

It’s ram season again!

I’m not saying that it’s the highlight of this season o, but you know… Ram is delicious, man.

The festive period is when everybody’s true colours come out, and Eid al-Adha issa real eye-opener.

You Muslims are casted and you don’t even know. Let me tell you how you guys behave when Sallah comes around.

Those of you that only go to mosque on Sallah but will still be prouding.

Last last God is watching us all in 3D.

Then there are those of you that have been only been waiting for this day just so you can show up and show out!

Pepper dem!

For some of you, this season means nothing but frustration.

“What do you mean ram is now 90k? Was it not just two days ago that I came here and you were selling for 65k?!”

Then there are those that this is their only interest.

Because it means you can run home from the mosque and kill your own ram. Food is life tbh.

Some of you catch the festive bug and are fully prepared to turn up!

Y’all are the real MVPs tbh.

And of course, there are those of you that will ghost on guys because of meat.

“Just call me when you dey my street” but two days later, your number is still switched off.

At least there are the people that will still share meat even if they don’t throw a party.

We appreciate you joor, because where else we for see meat? Your groundnut oil won’t finish.

Or is it the ones that think flight tickets are only available during Sallah?

Every Eid you’re “out of town”? Wawu.

Finally, we have those sure Muslim friends that even if they don’t have meat to give you, will still point you in the right direction.

“You smart. You loyal. I appreciate that.”

If you guys don’t want me to finish casting all your secrets, you’d better send some ram meat my way.

A word is enough o!

Eid Mubarak, brothers and sisters! Love and blessings!
