Mensagem de Id ul Fitr - 2011 / 1432 H

Posted: June 12, 2013, 5:08 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.

De Pyrrhus-overwinning van Gaza leert de zionisten een lesje

Hoe kan een volk de overwinning claimen wanneer 2145 mensen aan eigen zijde het leven hebben verloren door Israëlische bombardementen, het overgrote deel van hen burgers, en maar liefst 578 van hen kinderen? Is dit idee van een ‘overwinning’ niets anders dan een poging van Hamas om het staakt-het-vuren een draai te geven die haar populair kan maken onder de bevolking?

Hudhayfah Ibn al-Yaman

Hudhayfah Ibn al-Yaman was one of the early converts to Islam and shared a very close relationship with the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be to him). His father al-Yaman was from Makkah, but had to flee to Medina as he had killed someone in Makkah. Though the ban for him to enter Makkah was lifted after some time, he chose to make Medina his place of residence and hence Hudhayfah, despite being a Makkan, had his upbringing in Medina.

Portrayal of Muslim Women: Muslim American women are the new normal

Posted: August 28, 2014, 2:15 am
Most insults aimed at Muslims are far from subtle. It is easy to recognize the affront, for example, when someone says she is tired of people saying Islam is a religion of peace, or sponsors ads in subway stations implying Muslims are "savages." But sometimes the bigotry is subtle. Sometimes it comes from people who have been lovely to you, hosting you, feeding you fancy pastries and asking for your signature.

Dear Gaza, I’m sorry. I apologize on behalf of the United States of America.

We are certainly not united on the issue of Israel’s holocaust in Gaza. Yes, holocaust.
