The belief in Allah makes us worship Him and act according to our beliefs. Traditionally most of the teachings are directed to the theory of how to worship Allah but while the other aspects of the spiritual message of Islam are ignored.

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 kleur van je hart – Juz’ 26

Posted: July 23, 2014, 2:00 am

Discriminatoire vooringenomenheid is van alle tijden, maar zo ook het Koranisch verbod daarop. Of iemand een goed kind of goede werknemer, of wat dan ook, is of zal worden heeft niets te maken met benepen bagatellen. Maar waarmee dan wel? Als edelmoedigheid geen gevolg is van, door God bepaalde, fysieke facetten, hoe verwerf je dan wel een dergelijke eminente eigenschap?

Waarom de inzet voor GAZA ook over onze strijd in Nederland gaat  

Posted: July 22, 2014, 3:06 pm

Ik zie het grotere verhaal, van jongeren die tussen meerdere culturen leven en een middenweg proberen te zoeken. Jongeren die zich zowel willen identificeren met de cultuur die van huis uit meegekregen is, als met het land waar ze onlosmakelijk mee verbonden zijn. Jongeren die zowel loyaal zijn aan Palestina als aan Nederland. Het is een verhaal over jongeren die tijdens een demonstratie voor Palestina óók een minuut stilte houden voor de slachtoffers van MH17.

Ramadan: Cloudy with a chance of suhoor

Posted: July 23, 2014, 6:23 pm
The past six Ramadans, I rise before the sun does. It's not to eat suhoor, nor do I prepare it for my husband. I trudge by him as he groggily slurps down a bowl of O's, we exchange a look of mutual exhaustion. It's a call that summons me awake, reminding me that there's something greater than sleep. I kick my way out of the covers, sit up, and quickly begin reorienting myself. Peeling away from a dreamy subconscious realm, I stand up and enter my reality. Motherhood.

Ramadan: Ramadan is tough for Muslims with eating disorders

Posted: July 21, 2014, 2:17 pm
For young Muslim women struggling with eating disorders, Ramadan can be the worst time ever. I know this firsthand. As a teen girl, I would intermittently starve myself and vigorously work out. I would eat 500 calories a day--no carbs, no sugar.

Ramadan: Twenty years of stomach-shrinking Ramadan

Ramadan: Ramadan and repentance, through a child’s eyes

Posted: July 16, 2014, 4:58 am
I was nine years old when I made one of my first major pleas of repentance to God. It was Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting. Kids are not required to fast until they hit puberty, but even in kindergarten, I hated being left out of Ramadan and begged my parents to let me fast. To put an end to my whining, they told me that if I didn’t eat anything between my meals, it would count as a “half-fast.”
