Ramadan and Time Robbers

Ramadan comes with a full package of opportunities and spiritual environment that no one can deny: Fasting and patience, iftar parties and the social aspect, taraweeh prayers and Qur’an recitation…etc. All of that are great and they put you (or force you) in the Ramadan zone.

However, your battle with your desires and your inner-self (nafs) isn’t over. The only change is in the battleground and hence in the weapons used and the potential “casualties”. In this article we talk about a weapon that tends to take over many Muslim minds and hearts in Ramadan: Time Robbers.

Ramadan: the ninth month in the Islamic calendar.

Allah the Almighty has blessed us with special hours such as the pre-dawn hours (sahar); with special days such as Friday, the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah and the Day of `Arafah; with special nights, such as the last ten nights of Ramadan and the night of Power (Laylat Al-Qadr) and with special months like the month of Ramadan.

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. It is the most blessed month of the year. Since it is around the corner and as it is the case with respectful and dear guests that we get ourselves ready to receive them, we have to show Ramadan that it is the long-awaited-for guest.

  1. Start your day with light rak`ahs after Suhur and before Fajr Prayer.
  2. Make sure to pray Fajr in congregation to be given complete light in the Day of Judgment that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) promised those who pray Fajr in the mosque.
  3. Have a daily Qur’an reading assignment (wird). Reading one Juz’ (part) is the minimum that you can do in Ramadan. If you really cannot, then try to read as much as you can. If you have a recitation group after Fajr, this will help tremendously to make the task easy.
  4. Assign to yourself that task of reading the tafseer of one juz’; knowing the meaning of the vocabulary and the context.
  5. Try not to eat much. Follow the Sunnah (one third for food, one third for water and one third for air). This will help a lot in being attentive and not being lethargic during the Tarawih Prayer.
  6. Challenge yourself to observe Duha Prayer. The Prophet said that this Salah is the one of the sincere and pious people.
  7. Each day in Ramadan, teach yourself the meaning of Allah beautiful Names.
  8. Take a nap to be able to stay focused during `Isha’ and Tarawih prayers.

New Brother, welcome to Islam !

This new Brother took Shahadah. Later he went to mosque and started crying saying “He found Peace” Pray for the Brother, May Allah keep him on the straight path! May Allah Guide us too. Amen

Greece bans a song for talking about Islam !

World Bulletin/News Desk

A song composed by Greek composer Manos Hacidakis titled “Kemal” has been banned in Athens following allegations that it serves as “Islamic propaganda” !!

A complaint was received after an elementary school teacher in Greece handed 5th grade students lyrics to a song, composed by Hacidakis for a young man named Kemal whom he met in New York in 1968, so that they could read it during the next lesson.

The school received a complaint that “Islamic propaganda” was being pursued through the “Kemal” song. The reasoning was that “Allah” was present in three times in the song !

In her statement on social media, the teacher who was accused of spreading ‘Islamic propaganda ‘ explained that she was called into the principal’s office after a parent complained.

LYRICS

“Hark to the story of Kemal

a young prince of the East
descendant of Sinbad the Sailor
who thought he could change the world.
But bitter is the will of Allah
and dark the souls of men.”

In the lands of the East once upon a time
the purse was empty and the water stale.
In Mosul and Basra on the old coconut tree
the children of the desert now cry bitter tears.

And a young man of an old and royal line
hears the lament and grows near.
the Bedouins look at him sadly
and he gives them an oath in Allah’s name, that times will change.

When the lords heard of the lad’s fearlessness
they set out with wolf’s teeth and lion’s skin
from Tigris** to Euphrates**, from the earth to the heavens
they hunt for the deserter, to capture him alive.

The horde descends upon him like rabid dogs
and takes him to the Caliph to place the noose [on his neck]
black honey and black milk he drank that morning
before he breathed his last on the gallows.

The Prophet (Muhammed) awaits before the Gates of Heaven
with two elderly camels and a red horse.
They now go hand in hand and it’s cloudy
but the star of Damascus kept them company.

In a month and a year they see Allah before them
and from his high throne he says to the simple Sinbad:
“my beaten smart-aleck, times do not change,
the world always moves on by fire and blades”

Goodnight Kemal, this world will never change.
Goodnight…

Divine Scheme

Divine Scheme

The Divine scheme, as outlined in the Quran, is designed to operate equally well under all circumstances and at all stages of human development, on the macrocosmic as well as the microcosmic scale. It makes full allowance for a human being’s own abilities and potential for improvement and gives careful consideration to his strengths and weaknesses. It neither devalues a person’s role on earth nor denigrates his status as an individual or as a member of society.

In its view of the human being, God’s scheme is neither idealistic, raising the human being far above his deserved position, nor does it describe a human being as worthless or dispensable.

Living In The Shade Of The Qur'an

 

A human being is a unique creature who can, through his natural talents and innate abilities, adapt himself to the Divine order of life and so rise to the highest levels of progress and achievement. The Divine order is a universal plan for the long term. It is neither oppressive nor arbitrary. Its perspectives and prospects are broad and not restricted to the life or interests of one individual: it looks far into the future. Human ideologies, on the other hand, are usually limited to the lifespan of their proponents, who are bent on achieving all their ambitions and settling all their scores within a single generation. This inevitably comes into conflict with human nature, resulting in oppression, conflict, bloodshed, and the destruction of human values and civilisation.
Islam adopts a very gentle approach towards human nature, encouraging, prodding, pampering, cajoling, reprimanding and, where necessary, disciplining and restraining. It prefers the patient, caring attitude, confident of the eventual outcome. It is a continuous process of growth and development that can only get better as time goes on. There is no need for compromises, half-hearted solutions, or arbitrary or foolish measures. In God’s scheme, things must be allowed to take their natural course.
