Mensagem de Id ul Fitr - 2011 / 1432 H

Posted: June 12, 2013, 4:08 pm

Al Furqan

Neste dia de Id ul Fitr, expressamos os nossos desejos sinceros de felicidade para toda a Comunidade Islâmica.

Assalamu Alaikum:

O Id ul Fitr marca o fim do mês do Ramadão. Dizemos adeus ao mês abençoado, aos seus dias e às suas noites belas, espirituais e perfumadas. Deixamos o mês de buscar proximidade com al Gafur, al Rahim, esperando termos recarregado as nossas baterias espirituais.

O Id-ul-Fitr está relacionado com o mês sagrado do Ramadão. Isto significa o fim do mês de jejum (o primeiro dia do mês de Xaual).

O Id-ul-Fitr é um festival único. Não tem nenhuma conexão com qualquer evento histórico, nem está relacionado com a mudança das estações ou ciclos da agricultura. Não é um festival relacionado de alguma forma com assuntos mundanos. O seu significado é puramente espiritual. Este é o dia em que os muçulmanos agradecem a Deus por lhes ter dado a vontade, força e resistência para observar e obedecer rapidamente ao seu comando durante o mês sagrado do Ramadão.

Este dia traz alegria e felicidade no mundo muçulmano. A alegria não é, contudo, pela partida do Ramadão, é a felicidade que o ser humano (crente muçulmano) sente depois de concluir com sucesso uma tarefa importante.

É comemorado durante três dias. Presentes são trocados. Amigos e familiares reúnem-se para rezar em congregação.

A festa do Fitr é a recompensa de Deus para aqueles que jejuaram durante o mês sagrado do Ramadão. Neste mês, os homens devem tentar acumular o seu verdadeiro conhecimento sobre Allah, fazer actos de caridade aos necessitados, renovar as suas crenças para com o seu Senhor, e, portanto, será uma fonte de unidade e solidariedade para todos os muçulmanos em todo o mundo.

O Santo Profeta (Paz e Bênçãos estejam sobre Ele) comemorou o Id e encorajou todos os muçulmanos a fazê-lo. Ele disse aos muçulmanos para usar boas roupas, usar perfume e ir para a Mesquita para rezar a oração do Id. Ele também disse para trocarem presentes no Id, visitando-se uns aos outros, e passar o feriado geralmente de uma forma festiva. Devemos lembrar aos pobres, dando-lhes a fitrah antes do Id.

O dia do Id é para a recordação de Deus. O Santo Profeta (Paz e bênçãos estejam sobre ele) disse: "Dê a beleza a seu Id fazendo o Takbir".

Diz-se que o Profeta (paz e bênçãos estejam sobre ele) costumava sair de sua casa no dia do Id, recitando o Takbir e glorificando Deus em voz alta.

Hazrat Ali (r.a.) disse: "Id é para aqueles cujos jejuns foram aceites por Deus, e cujo culto foi apreciado por Deus. Cada dia que não desobedeçam a Deus é um dia de Id".

O que fazer hoje? Qual a Sunnah da Oração do Id?

Os seguintes actos prescrevem-se como Sunnah no início do dia de Id-ul-Fitr antes de prosseguir para a oração do Id:

1. Acordar de manhã cedo.

2. Lavar os dentes um a um com um mishwaak ou escova.

3. Tomar um banho.

4. Usar uma das suas melhores roupas disponíveis.

5. Usar perfume.

6. Comer um alimento doce, de preferência tâmaras, antes da oração do Id.

7. Recitar o seguinte Takbir em voz baixa, enquanto se dirige à oração do Id:

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Lá iláha Il'Allah; Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar ,Wa lil láhil hâmd. (Deus é Grande, Deus é Grande, Não há outra divindade senão Deus; Deus é Grande, Deus é Grande, e louvado seja Deus.

Prezados Irmãos:

Que Deus nos mantenha no caminho recto no sentido de obtermos as Bênçãos, a Misericórdia e o perdão de Deus;

Que Deus nos dê forças para vivermos como Muçulmanos, honesto e sinceros, dignos de exemplo;

E que o Dia de Id seja feliz para os Muçulmanos de todo o mundo.

Ameen

REFLECTION: Thoughts on "islamic" racism

Posted: March 24, 2014, 4:14 am

Racism.

It's a complex phenomenon.

Its victims are many, and often its perpetrators do not cite race as their inspiration.

But in some circles, the perpetrators of racism are seen as being all of one colour. Perhaps not a literal colour. Perhaps colour is a loose term used to describe a category. But colour is used.

There is a theory in some social sciences circles that speaks of "whiteness". It refers not specifically to persons of white skin. It is much broader.

But sadly, some in less mature Australian Muslim circles who claim some qualification in politics, sociology and other social sciences, are attempting to apply their own brand of whiteness theory on a faith that is colour blind.

Yet the contradictions in this group are extraordinary.

One is a psychologist of Palestinian extraction who has anglicised her surname.

Another is an Adelaide-based post doc who was born in the United Kingdom and has skin almost as white as snow.

More to come.

Moslim geworden, maar wat nu?

En dan ben je Moslim. Dit betekent dat er in de komende tijd heel wat dingen zullen veranderen. Je probeert jezelf er op voor te bereiden. Maar laat staan je omgeving. Hoe pak je dit aan? Stuur je iedereen een kaartje of kom je met een hoofddoek op dagen? Niet alleen moet jij gaan ontdekken hoe je verandert, maar ook je omgeving zit met argusogen naar je te kijken. Hoe extreem wordt ze? Welke grapjes kunnen we nog met haar maken? Moeten we honderd meter veder op staan als we willen roken? In hoeverre raken we haar kwijt..

Motherhood: The promise of Allah

Posted: April 22, 2014, 2:39 pm
I tear up as I lie in bed nursing my almost-2-year-old little girl. Her warm hands stroking my tummy while my arms blanket her as she drifts off to sleep. I knew that weaning her would be difficult for me, and now, I find myself turning to Allah, asking Him for the strength to get us both through this weaning process.I imagine that many mothers feel this way about weaning. Many of them have told me that when the time comes, they just knew that it was time. That they got to a point when they felt that it was enough. I haven’t reached that point.

Marriage: A married woman

Posted: April 17, 2014, 1:12 pm
When I was growing up, my Iraqi-born mother responded to my requests to travel alone, consider schools out-of-state, or stay out late with friends with the same answer, “When you get married.” Once I got married, I’d be somebody else’s problem. Then, it wouldn’t be her place to tell me no. Then, it would be my husband’s job to worry about me.Marriage, in my adolescent mind, was the only way to an independent adulthood. Western culture may have referred to marriage as settling down, but I associated it with freedom.

Wellness: We need more Muslim doulas!

Posted: April 14, 2014, 1:19 am
Giving birth is, in so many ways, an act of faith. It involves a kind of radical trust in our bodies that I equate with tawakkul, trust in Allah, the One who made our bodies. For me, being a doula is also an act of faith. A doula is someone who supports and comforts a mother in childbirth, building a relationship with her over the weeks leading up to the delivery and sometimes continuing to support a new mother in the weeks that follow.
