Nella Striscia di Gaza, dove il Ramadan dura 365 giorni all'anno
2009-09-16 06:08:00
Il mio articolo per Il Manifesto di domenica:     Il mio paffuto vicino di casa, Abu Ghalium, si è compiace di aver già perso 4 chili dopo circa 20 giorni di Ramadan. Beato lui, mi sono detto, che potrà recuperarli facilmente dopo il mese di digiuno, facendo parte di quella elite di privilegiati palestinesi che non soffrono più di tanto l'occupazione, ma anzi si rimpinguano le tasche offrendo appartamenti in affitto e servizi alla cooperazione internazionale. In realtà, qui a Gaza nulla è più snervante, avvilente e smagrente dell'assedio israeliano. E perdendosi nell'arnia appiccicosa di umanità nei pidocchiosi vicoli dei campi profughi, dove passi appena se sei sovrappeso, dove il sole batte impietoso facendo evaporare ogni miraggio di oasi di pace, e le mosche battono in ritirata stanche di poggiarsi sopra tanta misera; nelle tendopoli su a nord, ad Abed Rabbo, dove interi nuclei famigliari sono ...
Ramadan, Price Hike and People
2009-08-30 10:36:00
Despite different announcements by the government the prices of commodities keep rising all the time. Unchecked price hike is particularly visible at three occasions; before and during Ramadan, before and after annual budget and in between whenever prices of Petrol go up.All nation and economies around the world respect their national and religious festive celebrations and reduce prices, announce clearance sales and help every one to make purchases. Pre Christmas sale is one of the best examples. Contrary to this spirit, we face unchecked price increase before and during Ramadan and before sacred occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr. ?The present situation indicates that rulers are not consumer friendly as they are backing hoarders, investors, capitalists besides working on the agenda of IMF and WB,? says PRM President Dr Aasim Sajjad, ?sugar crisis was witnessed widely and the government pledged to deal with hoarders with iron hands but now situation was out of control? he added.

Ramadan Begins
2009-08-23 13:32:00
During the month of Ramadan, Allah revealed the first verses of the Quran (divine book that has and will remain intact for all the times) on His last prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) (around C.E. 610).Ramadan is the ninth month of the lunar calendar, during which Muslims fast from before sunrise to after sunset. Nothing is consumed during daylight hours in this period. Islam follows a lunar calendar which means that the months of the year are measured according to the revolutions of the moon around the earth (each month begins with the sighting of the new moon). The Muslim lunar calendar begins at the point of migration of the Prophet Muhammad from Makka to Madina over 1400 years ago.For Muslims around the world the month of Ramadan is a "month of blessing" marked by prayer, fasting, and charity. Ramadan has special significance since it is the month in which Muslims show more empathy towards the poor and downtrodden. After the sun sets, the fast is broken with a meal known as iftar. ...
Ramadan 2009 in Palestina
2009-08-22 14:04:00
Il sole che ambra la pelle e arroventa le notti è lo stesso, ma l'ingiustizia di due estati a confronto è palpabile anche per una mente superficiale. Restiamo Umani. L'ESTATE ISRAELIANA: L’ingiustizia dell’occupazione non costa nulla agli Israeliani Francamente, non è superfluo tutto ciò? Che il presidente degli Stati Uniti consacri buona parte del suo tempo prezioso e della sua buona volontà per tentar di convincere della necessità di por fine al conflitto arabo-israeliano. Che gli europei si tengano pronti ad entrare in azione e che metà del pianeta sia in attesa. Ma siamo sinceri: perché tutta questa agitazione attorno a noi? I coloni potrebbero lanciare grida e bloccare le strade. Le Forze di Difesa Israeliane potrebbero perdere d’importanza e le informazioni potrebbero anche diventare noiose. Il vigneto nelle alture del Golan potrebbe chiudere, come la boutique dei vini nella colonia di Ofra. Il f...

Ramadan departs | Eid Mubarak
2008-09-30 00:32:00
The month of fasting, Ramadan, is often greeted by the Sufis as a good friend, and as a welcome and honoured guest. They love to see this guest come, but also to see him go.The implication of the first is clear, but perhaps not of the second. The end of the month of fasting is followed by a feast. In ordinary terms it means that you can eat and drink.In Sufi terms the feast implies the meeting with the Beloved. The Beloved is then the cupbearer Who pours out the wine of gnosis and love.Jami writes (ghazal #1-178 p. 201):Helal-e 'id jostan kaar-e 'aam astHelal-e 'id-e khaasaan daur-e jaam ast.The search of the crescent of the feastis the work of the common people.For the elite, the circling movement of the gobletis the crescent of the feast.That is why a Chishti pir often said: "May every day be a day of festival to you!"As the moon of Ramadan come to an end and the new moon appear on the horizon, it marks the islamic festival, Eid ul Fitr. Depending on geographic location, muslim...

The most eagerly awaited month in Islamic calendar is Ramadan and this year, 2008 this will be Ramadan of 1429 Hijri Year. Exactly 1441 years ago (12 year prior of the Hijra), during his annual retreat and seclusion in the small cave called Hira on Jabal al-Nur (the Mountain of Light), Holy Prophet Muhammad, blessed be his soul, received the first divine revelation of the Quran.This year Ramadan begins in most part of the world on 1st of September. According to my teacher, Sidi Said al-Jamal, may God be pleased with him, the Head of the Sufi Council in Jerusalem and the Holy Land and teacher at the Masjid al-Aqsa (the Dome of the Rock); and also according to the Moon Sighting site: "The holy fasting month of Ramadan will start Monday, September 1, in most Arab and Gulf countries as well as North America and European countries.August 31, will be the last day of the month of Sha'ban and Ramadan will fall on Monday, September 1, added the council.

Preparation for Ramadan | the quintessential month of fasting
2008-08-27 08:00:00
Ramadan (also pronounced as Ramzan) is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, the blessed month in which the Quranic revelation started. This month is the hallmark of special blessing and a quintessential month of fasting (sawm). The Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar, and months begin when the first crescent of a new moon is sighted. This year 2008 the start of Ramadan is expected to begin on 1st of September.During this month it's recommended in Quranic principle to fast from all food and drink from sunrise till sunset for the whole lunar month uninterrupted. It is not just an Islamic practice but a universal spiritual practice that was recommended to all other communities in the past including the earlier Prophets and Apostles. The Final Testament testifies: "O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint." - The Quran 2:183Fasting is very much a spiritual reality in the Judeo-Christian tradition su...
Boicottiamo Tariq Ramadan e Valerio Evangelisti, e non La Fiera del Libro

Boicottiamo Tariq Ramadan e Valerio Evangelisti, e non La Fiera del Libro     di Giuseppe Iannozzi       A pochi giorni dall’inaugurazione della Fiera del Libro di Torino c’è ancora chi polemizza, a volte con argomenti a dir poco fallaci e privi di qualsivoglia buonsenso, altre ancora in modo del tutto pecoreccio. Tra i contestatori non troppo eccellenti anche Valerio Evangelisti, sulle colonne di Carmilla on line: “[…] Attualmente, oltre a strangolare Gaza e Cisgiordania, il governo di Israele ha cominciato a infierire anche sui palestinesi che hanno la sua cittadinanza. Creato il nemico, spintolo all'integralismo islamico, riaffiorano i propositi di cancellarlo per sempre, proprio come etnia. Persino alcuni ministri israeliani ne parlano senza riserve. E questo lo Stato cui il Salone del Libro di Torino intende rendere onore, celebrandone la nascita: una specie di apologia del colonialismo moderno. E ora veniamo al ...

Tariq Ramadan is an enigma. The grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al Banna and the son of the late top Brotherhood leader in Europe, the Swiss academic is the probably the most celebrated Muslim public "intellectual" on the planet today. He is no longer welcome in France or Egypt, and his appointment to the faculty of Notre Dame is very much in doubt, based on the Department of Homeland Security's denial of his U.S. visa. The denial is premised on his financial support to Hamas, which...(read more)
La fatwa di Tariq Ramadan invita a boicottare la Fiera del Libro
2008-02-07 14:15:00
La fatwa di Tariq Ramadan invita a boicottare la Fiera del Libro di Giuseppe Iannozzi Questa triste storia di chi vorrebbe boicottare la Fiera del Libro è l'allarmante sintomo di un estremismo politico a solo danno della cultura tout court.   Tariq Ramadan ha invitato "tutti coloro che hanno una coscienza viva" a boicottare la Fiera del Libro di Torino. Da evidenziare che Rifondazione Comunista gioca per il boicottaggio. Fausto Bertinotti si disgiunge dalle idee del suo partito, almeno in questa occasione. Di fatto la Sinistra - se una Sinistra in Italia ancora c'è - è più che mai frammentata, e lo dimostra ancora una volta oggi. Piero Fassino invita a respingere il boicottaggio: "Chiunque abbia una coscienza democratica deve respingere nel modo più netto ed esplicito il boicottaggio". Dario Fo invece auspica Israele e Palestina ospiti d'onore a Torino. E Moni Ovadia, amico di Fo, dice anche lui la sua - con u...

Indonesia September trade data due out Thursday is expected to show the negative impact from the Muslim Ramadan fasting month although some economists are hoping that strong commodity prices will boost exports. Seven economists surveyed by Thomson Financial said they expect September exports to come in a range of 9.39-9.75 billion US dollars against 9.61 billion US dollars in August. Imports are expected to range from 6.26-7.03 billion US dollars against 6.85 billion dollars in August.

Ramadan In Thailand Offers Moments Of Peace
2007-10-15 15:54:00
Thailand’s three southern provinces are the only areas in which Muslims constitute a majority of the population. After a month of fasting for Ramadan, Thai Muslims celebrated Idul Fitri, day to mark the end of the holiday, with renewed hope the violence which has wracked the provinces will soon end. A Muslim led insurgency which began in January, 2004 has led to the deaths of over 3,400 people. Thai Muslims charge the dominant Buddhist government refuses to acknowledge the rights of minorities. In response, the Thai army has been heavily engaged in military actions in the area. Mohammad Rahman, as he left his mosque said: “Today at least, we are not afraid of shootings or murder. I hope the momentum for less violence will continue.” Unfortunately, his area witnessed ten deaths within a week. The Muslim led insurgency in southern Thailand is another example of what happens when governments fail to take a proactive stance in ensuring minorities enjoy equal rights. A...

Happy Ramadan
2007-10-12 12:24:00
Ramadan is an Islamic religious observance during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, when the Qur'an was revealed to Prophet Muhammad."Ramadan" means intense heat, scorched ground, and shortness of rations. Prayers, fasting, charity, and self-accountability are given priority during Ramdan. Ramadan is divided into three 'ten-days' parts. They are Rahmah, mercy of God, Maghfirah, forgiveness of God , and Najah, salvation. During the month following Ramadan, called Shawaal, Muslims are encouraged to fast for a further six days. The most prominent event of Ramadan month is the daytime fasting, practised by most observant Muslims. Every day during the month of Ramadan, Muslims around the world get up before dawn to eat and perform their fajr prayer and start fasting.The ill people and travellers will perform their Ramadan obligations during some other days. Children and the elderly/ pregnant women are exempted from the fasting.Muslims put more effort into the...

UCLA Muslim students observe Ramadan together with Non-Muslims | Fast-a-tho

News excerpts from contribution by Helen Yim, Daily Bruin contributor. On Tuesday (today, Oct 9), the Muslim Student Association (MSA) of UCLA will host Fast-a-thon, an event that invites non-Muslim students to experience a day of fasting. At 6:30 p.m., the MSA will invite the students that have fasted to break their fast together at a dinner on Bruin Plaza as student speakers discuss their experiences with fasting.While fasting during Ramadan helps Muslim students to reflect on their souls and grow closer to God, the increased religious commitments also challenge them to implement time management skills and provide opportunities to commune with each other.Naqib Shifa, a third-year geography and environmental studies student and president of MSA, said the goal of the Fast-a-thon is to give to charity while educating students about the importance of fasting to Muslims.Shifa said MSA plans to donate all the money raised in the Fast-a-thon to Islamic Relief, an organization that helps ...

Who is COTU ? The Companions of True Unity This is a new song titled Lord of Ramadan Ramadan is the holy month of Fasting for all Muslims. Fasting ( Siyam ) is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. Where Muslims fast from all food or drink from sunrise to sunset. I believe this is a group based out of Turkey. Here in the west we always talk about Turkey being part of an over all change in the East West relations. Turkey has always been attempting to become part of Europe and integrated into western society. They have not bee admitted to the UN for some many years. Recently the new Pope went to visit Turkey after there was tension, when he suggested in a speech that Islam was a barbaric religion with no value. In an attempt to build bridges and mend relations with the Muslim world, Pope Benedict XVI went to Turkey. This group which may also be German, is an interesting phenomenon.

Into the last ten days of Ramadan | looking back at the purpose of Ramadan
2007-10-05 03:34:00
The blessed month of Ramadan, the month of fasting is winding to a close while we enter the final ten days of the holy month. As its about to finish, lets look back at the whole purpose of this practice of month long fasting. Its a good time to ponder on the very divine revelations concerning Ramadan. Perhaps God willing whatever time left we can be mindful and work towards its purpose.Since the Quran prescribed fasting specifically in the month of Ramadan, it is important to know the significance of this special time. A special feature of the Quran is that whenever it gives a command for action, it also provides the wisdom behind it. It tells what the final result of that action will be in this world, if it is successfully carried out. In this way the Quran provides a pragmatic test for people to see whether or not they are moving toward that desired result. (credit)Regarding fasting, the Quran says: "O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those befo...
