Seven reasons why Ramadhan of Soudi arabia is better than India.

Let me introduce myself first.Asian by ethenicity and born and brought up in India, I am a muslimah.

I have spent 3 years in soudi arabia and I am totally in love with this place.It is like a paradise, an ideal place where any muslim would want to spend his Ramadhan.

I have people back in my country asking me how is the Ramadhan different?  I would like to show a glimpse of Ramadhan in the kingdom and leave you to decide which is better.

1) TARAWEEH PRAYER:

Today is the first day of Ramadhan.And Yesterday was the first tarawih I read in congregation.Yeah,Unlike India, we muslimah greet each other in mosques and get the opportunity to read the tarawih prayer.The Tarawih prayer boost the spirituality and act as a superbooster for the fast ahead.

2) NO SCORCHING HEAT BURNING YOUR SKIN

Alhumdulillah, the climate is good.Even if it was scorchy hot like that in India, we wouldn’t have felt the heat because we have air conditioners all over the place.

3) NO TOUGH FAST, LOTS OF TIME TO PRAY

My muslim brother and sisters in India will have a tough time facing the heat , with 8 hours of duty and the Ramadhan fast.Unfortunately in some places of India, the people are so inconsiderate, they make you do all your work with no relaxation in duty and sometimes you have to break the fast with a single date and wait for hours to go home and have a proper iftar.Ramadhan in arab is so easy with your working hours cut short and two days of leave each week. giving people proper time to pray and develop spiritually reaping full benefit from Ramadhan.

3) MESEMERISING CITY

image

when you step out , the whole city is decorated like a new bride and the shopping malls loaded with offers . It looks mesemerising.And when you hear the call of adhan, people leave their job and fall down in prayers praising Allah (swt).The bussiness halts.All shops get closed till the salah finishes and then resumes as usual
People in millions stand shoulder to shoulder praising their lord and thanking him.

4)THE FLOOD OF PEOPLE COMPETING WITH EACH OTHER FOR TAQWA

image

When you see a pic like this, your ego and pride vanishes and you feel so thankful for being a muslim A muslim who knows his lord ,who knows he will return to his lord. And the very reason he is on this earth enjoying all the bounties is to worship Allah and glorify him.Wallahi, Allah don’t need our prayers.We need him.

4) EVEN A SHOP REMINDS YOU OF ALLAH
image

When you visit a little shop in the corner of the street, you get to read alhumdulillah or masha Allah giving all praise and thanks to Allah and when you go for a drive, in the midst of a vast desert , u see a banner glorifying lord.The people here never forget their lord and keep glorifying him and asking for gorgiveness.

5)IFTAR FOR BARAKAH , RAMADHAN FOR FASTING -NOT FEASTING

image

Back in India, we have iftar feast.The Ladies trying to out do each other competing in hosting the best iftar.With Lots of dishes, we get plenty of food but often our salah get delayed.and we feel exhausted to read out taraweeh.Iftar should be a means of barakah and not a matter to get more recoginition and apploud.

6) BEST WORSHIP IN THE BEST OF NIGHTS

image

And not to forget the Qiyamul lail. .Last ten days of Ramadhan witness ibadah in mosque for the whole night.As a muslimah, this is the unique opportunity I will always look forward to.What is better than a thousand of nights than these bleseed days.

7) UMRAH IN RAMADHAN EQUALS THE THAWAB OF HAJ

image

What’s better than an Umrah done in Ramadhan.Everytime I enter haramsharif and look at kaaba, a tear rolls down my eyes.I feel heavily burdened by my sins.I fall down in prostration before my lord asking for forgiveness.

May Allah accept our Istaghfar and guide our family and friends to deen.And May Allah give a chance to each muslim to see the Ramadhan of Arab.

Pakistani Actor Hamza Ali Abbasi,ex aetheist to quit acting for Allah and to Spread Islam.


In a video shared by him on Twitter, Hamza Ali Abbasi spoke about his journey – how he became an atheist when he was 14-15 years old and how science “brought him back” being a theist when he went to the US.

“I want to spend the rest of my life talking about God,” Abbasi said in the video-sharing that his decision is based on 10 years research.

Abbasi, who recently married Naimal Khawar, said that now he will try to shape his life in accordance with Islam and will try to spread across the message through various platforms.

“Being an ‘ex-atheist’, I want to share the answers I have received about God with people. I don’t want to debate or convince people, I just want to share,” he said and added that if he will make any movie or show, then it will be about Islam.

babri masjid demolisher now a muslim

Man involved in Babri Masjid demolition now builds mosques to wash away guilt


Do you know that Kar sevak from Haryana who was part of Babri Masjid demolition, now preaches Islam, builds masjids ?He has built 90 Mosque so far.

Aamir, a former Shiv Sena leader from Panipat, Haryana often recalls the fateful day of December 6, 1992, that marked the demolition of Babri Masjid.

Aamir said that along with his friend Mohammed Umar, formerly Yogendra Pal, he had vowed to construct the Sri Ram Mandir at Ayodhya demolishing the masjid. Today, the two are fulfilling their pledge to renovate 100 mosques, in an attempt to purge themselves of their sins.

On December 1, 1992, Aamir reached Ayodhya to join thousands of kar sevaks coming from across the country. On December 6 that year, according to Aamir, he was the first man to climb the middle dome.

“We feared that the army might have been deployed in large number. But on ground there was hardly any security, that gave us a boost and we were mentally prepared to demolish the masjid that day,” said Mohammed Aamir.

Aamir along with many other kar sevaks from Sonipat and Panipat demolished the dome with spades and pickaxes.

“When I reached my home town Panipat after that I was given a hero’s welcome by the people,” Aamir said.

“But at home, my family’s reaction shocked me. My secular family denounced my actions. I had participated in the kar seva because I felt strongly about it, but I realized later that I was wrong.”

Mohammed Aamir, born a Rajput, said, “I realized that I had taken law in my hands and violated the constitution of India. Guilty, I embraced Islam.”

#Hijabisanidentity- Hijab walk to Stop the discrimination and marginalization of Muslim women and girls.


Freedom of religion is a fundamental human right in the Ghanaian legal system. To be specific Article 21 (c) of the 1992 Constitution states: “All persons shall have the right to freedom to practice any religion and to manifest such practice.”

Unfortunately, most Muslim women and girls living in Ghana have dealt with individuals who exert their biases and bigotry into institutional cultures. Thus, making it impossible for Muslim women to wear the hijab as part of their religious freedoms stipulated in the 1992 constitution.

The #Hijabisanidentity campaign pushes for the right of Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab to be free to do so without intimidation from any individual or institution.

Why do Muslim Woman Wear Hijab.

Recently, an invigilator of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) asked a candidate to remove her hijab before sitting her exams. This latest move sparked a recent social media campaign by Islam advocates dubbed: #Hijabisanidentity

They believe the successful campaign which culminated in a massive demonstration in some regions – North, Ashanti and Accra – will help shake up some traditionally-held cultural misconceptions about the female Muslim identity. On Saturday October 12, Ghanaian Muslim women marched for their right to wear the hijab. The #Hijabisanidentity campaign is still on.

Stop policing Women’s bodies!

Sinéad O’Connor Performs in Hijab.Says : ‘I have been a Muslim all my life and I didn’t realise it’


Dublin: Singer Sinead O’Connor stepped out in a traditional hijab with her son after converting to Islam in October.

The 52-year-old wore a bright red abaya and matching hijab when she appeared on “The Late Late Show” in Dublin on Friday night, reports ” the sun”

Earlier in the day, she arrived at the studio with her son, 15-year-old Shane Lunny, who looks exactly like his mom.

Sinead was dressed more casually in blue trousers, a matching belted shirt, and a navy cardigan. She complete the look with a dark blue headscarf. Shane carried his mother’s red abaya to the venue.

Shane apart, Sinead is also mother to 32-year-old Jake, 23-year-old Roisin and 12-year-old Yeshua.

In October last year, Sinead announced that she had converted to Islam, changing her name to Shuhada Davitt.

Sinéad O’Connor has described how she felt “at home” after reading the Koran and subsequently embracing the Muslim religion.

The singer, who has returned following a five-year hiatus from touring, announced her decision to “revert” to Islam almost a year ago and says she often wears the hijab as a means of signalling her new-found beliefs.

The word ‘revert’ refers to the idea that if you were to study the Koran you would realise that you were a Muslim all your life and you didn’t realise it. That’s what happened to me,” she said on Friday night’s Late Late Show.

“I am 52. I grew up in a very different Ireland to the one that exists now and it was a very oppressed country religiously speaking. And everybody was miserable; nobody was getting any joy in God.

”The singer, who has long captivated audiences with her views on Irish life, spoke about reading the scriptures as a child and later exploring other religious texts “trying to find the truth about God”. She left Islam until last because she held her own prejudices about the religion, she said.

Archeologists finds the World’s Oldest Rural Mosque in Israel


 Archaeologists in Israel have discovered the remains of one of the world’s oldest rural mosques, built around the time Islam arrived in the holy land,

world's oldest rural mosque

The Israel Antiquities Authority estimates that the mosque, uncovered ahead of new construction in the Bedouin town of Rahat in the Negev desert, dates back to the 7th to 8th centuries.

There are large mosques known to be from that period in Jerusalem and in Makkah but it is rare to find a house of prayer so ancient whose congregation is likely to have been local farmers, the antiquities authority said.

Play the Quiz : Identify these Mosques

Excavated at the site were the remains of an open-air mosque — a rectangular building, about the size of a single-car garage, with a prayer niche facing south toward Makkah.

“This is one of the earliest mosques known from the beginning of the arrival of Islam in Israel, after the Arab conquest of 636 C.E.,” said Gideon Avni of the antiquities authority.

“The discovery of the village and the mosque in its vicinity are a significant contribution to the study of the history of the country during this turbulent period.”
