  • Fiqh Council of North America Statement on Ramadan and Shawwal (1436/2015)

    First day of Ramadan will be Thursday, June 18, 2015 and Eid al-Fitr on Friday, July 17, 2015, insha’Allah.

    “O you who believe, fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you may (learn) self-restraint.” Qur’an 2: 183

    The Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) recognizes astronomical calculation as an acceptable Shar’i method for determining the beginning of Lunar months including the months of Ramadan and Shawwal. FCNA uses Makkah al-Mukarrama as a conventional point and takes the position that the conjunction must take place before sunset in Makkah and moon must set after sunset in Makkah. Read Full Article…

     

  • Isra and Miraj: The Miraculous Night Journey

    The Israa and Miraj refer to, two parts of an miraculous journey that Prophet Muhammad  took in one night from Makka to Jerusalem and then an ascension to the heavens.

    Israa is an Arabic word referring to Prophet Muhammad’s  miraculous night journey from Makka to Jerusalem – specifically, to the site of al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem – as referred to in Surah Al-Israa in the Quran.

    It is believed to have been followed by the Mi’raj, his ascension to heaven. According to some of the Hadith scholars this journey is believed to have taken place just over a year before Prophet Muhammad  migrated to from Makka to Madina, on the 27th of Rajab.

    Muslims celebrate this night by offering optional prayers during this night, and in many Muslim countries, by illuminating cities with electric lights and candles. Read Full Article…

  • First Qur’an recitation at Hagia Sofia in 85 years

    ISTANBUL – A Muslim cleric has for the first time in 85-years recited the Holy Qur’an in public inside the Hagia Sophia.

    A verse from the Holy Qur’an was recited late Friday at a ceremony in the Hagia Sophia to mark the opening of a new exhibition “Love of the Prophet.”

    It was read by Ali Tel, imam at the Ahmet Hamdi Akseki Mosque in Ankara, the official Anatolia news agency said.

    A church for over 1,000 years and a mosque for 500 more, Hagia Sophia is the most spectacular building in Istanbul. It was turned into a mosque after Constantinople was taken by Sultan Mehmet II in 1453.

    In the 20th Century, Hagia Sophia was turned into a museum accessible to all by the secular founders of modern Turkey.

    The ceremony was attended by top Turkish officials including the head of the country’s religious affairs agency Diyanet, Mehmet Gormez.

    The exhibition inside the Hagia Sophia is a show of calligraphic work in devotion to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and runs until May 8.

    On several occasions in recent years, tens of thousands of Turkish Muslims gathered to pray outside Hagia Sofia, urging Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan to reopen the museum to serve as a Muslim house of worship.

    But the Turkish government has assured on several occasions its rejection of this request, as any pledge to reopen Hagia Sofia as a mosque was threatening criticism from nationalist voters.
    Approximately 99 percent of Turkey’s population is Muslim, the majority of whom are Sunni Muslims.

    Turkey has thousands of mosques, the most famous of which is Blue Mosque, which is marked with its blue tile work ornamenting its interior walls.

  • Month Of Rajab

    Rajab-00Rajab Is The Seventh month of the Islamic Calendar.

    Meaning: From Rajaba “to respect”.  Another one of the sacred months in which fighting was forbidden prior to Islam. This was one of the most respected months for the Arabs.  It is also called Rajab al Fard. Fard means alone; because the other three sacred months come one after another, except this month.  It comes alone not like the other 3 consecutive sacred months.

    Events:

    1. The Holy Prophet  ascended to Heaven on the 27th of Rajab on either Sunday or Monday (Mi’raaj).
    2. Hadhrat Bilal Ibn Haritha (R.A) brought a congregation of four hundred men named Banu Muzeena in the presence of the Holy Prophet .  They all embraced Islam and became followers of the Holy Prophet  in the year 5 A.H
    3. The battle of Tabook took place in the year 9 A.H. This was the last battle in which the Holy Prophet  participated.
    4. The second Oath of Aqabah took place in Rajab, 12 A.H.

    5. Deaths:
    Imam Abu Hanifa (R.A) passed away on the 15th of Rajab 150 A.H.
    Imam Shafi’ee (R.A) passed away on the 14th Rajab 204 A.H.
    Imam Muslim (R.A) passed away on the 24th of Rajab 261 A.H.
    Imam Nawawee (R.A) passed away on the 14th of Rajab 677 A.H.

  • Why are only Muslims allowed to visit the holy city of Makkah, Saudi Arabia?

    Makkah and Madinah are cities of great importance in Islamic tradition — centers of pilgrimage and prayer, sacred places where Muslims are free from the distractions of daily life. The ban on non-Muslim visitors is mentioned in the Quran as follows: “Oh you who believe! Truly the idolaters are unclean; so let them not, after this year, approach the Sacred Mosque….” (9:28).

    This verse specifically refers to the Grand Mosque in Makkah; later scholars have included Madinah in this ruling as well. There are some Islamic scholars who would permit exceptions to this general rule, for trade purposes or for people who are under treaty permission. There is also some debate about the exact area and borders of the restricted area(s). The government of Saudi Arabia, which controls access to the holy sites, has decided upon a strict ban on both cities in their entirety.

    Restricting access to Makkah and Madinah is intended to provide a place of peace and refuge for Muslim believers and preserve the sanctity of the holy cities. At this time, millions of Muslims visit the cities each year, and additional tourist traffic would simply add to the congestion and detract from the spirituality of the pilgrimage visit.

  • ‘Mecca 3D’ App Takes You On A Virtual Hajj

    Observant Muslims plan to visit the holy city of Mecca at least once in their lifetimes to complete the Hajj, a pilgrimage considered to be a religious obligation. However, it’s now possible for anyone to make the trip, courtesy of technology and the “Mecca 3D” app.

    Founder Bilal Chbib talk about his vision for the app and why he thinks it’s important to use technology to educate.

    “I’m hoping that Muslims and non-Muslims alike will get a chance to experience Islamic locations by using this app,” he said.

    Since non-Muslims are prohibited by the Saudi Arabian government from visiting the Grand Mosque in Mecca, the app allows them the unique experience of exploring the site for themselves.

  • Dubai Melting Pot

    ESP2_DIFAYAROAD_DUBAI_MA15_336A2327_CROP_sm

    One of the oldest of these neighborhoods lies not far from where the ruling Maktoum family settled in 1833 with some 800 members of the Bani Yas tribe, west of the natural harbor known as “The Creek” and north of the Dubai World Trade Center, along a kilometer and a half of Al Diyafah Street. Officially renamed 2nd of December Street in 2011, Al Diyafah drifts along the northern edge of the Satwa neighborhood, where it is home to an unassuming treasure-trove of global cuisine.

    F_SP2_DIFAYA_ROAD_DUBAI_MA15_336A2767_CROP_smIt is at night that Al Diyafah comes alive with expatriates and workers from around the world—but especially from across Asia—who flocked to Dubai over the last four decades, some alone, some with their families. Now a city of more than two million, Dubai claims the fifth-largest non-native population in the world—some 90 percent of its residents. Nowhere is this reflected more clearly than in the restaurants and their patrons along Al Diyafah, where 30- and 40-year-old establishments are among the oldest in town. Read More…

  • Sara Rahim: Champion for interfaith dialogue

    When Sara Rahim recounts the details of her past accomplishments, it is with a breezy, cheerful tone. This is at once disarming and refreshing, given that they are long and of the highest caliber, especially for a person so young: the twenty-three-year old’s résumé is peppered with accolades from the State Department, the United Nations, and the White House, to name a few.

    “Too often, religion is misused as an instrument for division and injustice, betraying the very ideals and teachings that lie at the heart of each of the world’s great traditions,” Rahim stated to a hall of dignitaries. “However, at their best, religious and spiritual traditions shape the lives of billions of people in wise and wonderful ways. When our diverse communities work in harmony for the common good, there is hope that the world can be transformed.” Read Full Article…

  • Why I No Longer Support Israel

     Founder and president of the Secular Coalition for America

    My family shed “tears of joy” on May 14, 1948, when the Jewish State of Israel was established as a safe haven for Jews. I was five at the time and didn’t quite understand its significance, but I had been taught that an integral part of Judaism was anti anti-Semitism. A number of Jewish displaced persons (DPs) lived in my neighborhood, some of whom had been in concentration camps. I also had relatives who had died in the Holocaust, and my parents warned me to never trust the Goyim (Gentiles).

    When I grew up and evolved from Orthodox to secular Jew, I still felt a non-religious affinity to my Jewish “homeland.” I had no desire to make Israel my home, but I viewed it as a prophylactic against future Holocausts. I later learned that the establishment of Israel was not a day of unadulterated joy for everyone — because Jews settled in a country inhabited by other people and forced many of them to leave. In other words, Israel created Palestinian DPs. Nevertheless, I continued to support Israel, focusing mostly on the anti-Semitism of countries in the Middle East that denied Israel’s right to exist. However, I had a more nuanced view that required balancing security for Israelis with human rights for Palestinians. Read Full Article…

  • The compassion of the Prophet towards those who abused him

    Prophet Muhammad started the message of Islam in Arabia at a time when human rights had no meaning, might was right and the society was entrenched in paganism. In this environment Prophet Muhammad  taught a message of justice, peace, human rights, animal rights and even environmental rights as ordained by God, the One True Creator of all that is in the universe.

    God has shown us in the character of Prophet Muhammad  the model of a companionate person. He treated every one, friends and foe, man and woman, young and old, with kindness and respect.

    Even when the pagan Arabs reacted to the message of the Prophet with extreme hatred he showed love and kindness. See Full Article here…
