Celebrating ‘Eid ul-Fitr: a time of joy

10 Aug

A very beautiful article on Eid Celebration by Mufti Ali Goma (Grand Mufti of Egypt)
Untitled
 Man is naturally disposed to celebrations. Festive celebrations are rooted in the distant past since man has specified certain days for commemorating a day or event such as victories and births, with ceremonies and rejoicing. Each community has designated specific days of festivities when people wear their best, manifest their joy and put away their cares on these occasions.

When the Prophet emigrated to al-Medina, he found that the people there observed two feasts of pagan origin which they observed with festivities and play. He did not renounce the idea and sanctioned celebrations with national, social and religious characteristics. He substituted these days with another two connected with two of the greatest Islamic rites—the day of breaking the fast (after Ramadan) and the day of sacrifice.

Allah established the day of breaking the fast after Ramadan a feast for Muslims. On this day, people exchange felicitations and visit each other. On this day they express their mercy and affection, display their finery and enjoy the blessings of Allah.

On this day, they express their love and brotherhood all for the sake of Allah. And by the mercy of Allah, this joyous day is commenced with the prayer of ‘Eid, which Muslims from all the different social classes offer at the same time in congregation; they glorify and praise Allah and thank Him for guiding them. They are compassionate towards their poor and needy brothers offering them food and money to spare them the need to beg on this day. On this day, Muslims set aside their worldly troubles to pray with their brothers and exchange felicities and goodwill, thereby combining between communion with Allah through acts of worship and fellow Muslims through cooperation, mercy and fellowship.

The day of ‘Eid ul-fitr invokes Divine bounties which include:

– It is the first day following the month of Ramadan. On this day, restrictions relating to food and drink and sexual intercourse (for married couples) are lifted after a period of voluntary abstention by which Muslims declare their willingness to forsake these pleasures for the greater purpose of attaining the pleasure of Allah and His forgiveness. On this day, Muslims rejoices over having fulfilled their duty of obeying Allah and for attaining its reward attested to by the words of the Messenger who said, “A faster has two moments of joy: one when he breaks the fast (at the end of the month) and another when he meets his Lord.”

Commemorating this event

It is recommended to commemorate this day by making dhikr, praying or observing other acts of worship, especially offering salat ul-tasabih (Tasabih prayer) due to its excellence expressed in the hadith, “Whoever spends the eve of the two ‘Eids worshipping Allah and hoping to attain its reward, his heart will remain after he ceases to exist/ die along with him.” It has been suggested that a dead heart refers to a heart that is passionately fond of this world, or disbelief, the horrors of the day of resurrection. Ibn ‘Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them both) said that a heart is kept alive by offering the night prayer in congregation, resolving to pray the dawn prayer in congregation and by making supplications in both.

The takbirs said in the ‘Eid

The takbirs of the two ‘Eids are a sunnah according to the opinion of the majority of scholars. After the verses on fasting, Allah the Almighty says,
(He wants you) to complete the prescribed period, and to glorify him in that He has guided you. [Al-Baqarah, 185]

The takbirs referred to in this verse are those performed on ‘Eid ul-fitr while that mentioned the verses on pilgrimage refer to ‘Eid ul-adha. Allah says,
Remember Allah during the appointed days. [Al-Baqarah, 203]
To attain benefits and celebrate God’s name, on specified days, over the livestock He has provided for them. [Al-Hajj, 28]
He has thus made them subject to you, that ye may glorify Allah for His guidance to you. [Al-Hajj, 37]

Ibn Hazm said, “The takbirs made on the eve of the day of ‘Eid al-fitr are obligatory but those made on the eve of ‘Eid ul-adha are praiseworthy. Allah the Almighty says, And to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful. [Al-Baqarah, 183]

Therefore, takbirs become obligatory upon the after completion of the fast of Ramadan. One instance of takbir fulfills the obligation.”
To make takbir is to exalt Allah and in the context of ‘Eid, it is to exalt Allah and establish His greatness through the words ‘Allahu akbar’ which denote Allah’s Divine oneness. This is because the superlative form necessitates the diminution of everything else and any diminutive entity is not deserving of divinity. Allah is free from imperfections and, for this reason, takbir was legislated in prayers to nullify prostrations to other than Allah; in hajj when sacrificing to nullify what people used to sacrifice to their idols; and at the end of the month of fasting indicating that Allah is worshipped through fasting and that He is the One True God in the face of the falsehood of the idols.

It is because of this that Muslims were instructed to make takbir en route to the ‘Eid prayer and for the imam to make takbir in the ‘Eid sermon.
It is recommended to start making takbir when the sun sets on the eve of the day of the two ‘Eids. A person is to keep making takbir at his home, on the road and in mosques and markets by raising his voice (for men) and uttering the relevant expressions until the imam of the ‘Eid prayer announces the start of prayer. A person, who is not praying behind an imam, is to continue his takbir until the imam finishes the ‘Eid prayer and sermons.

Nothing specific concerning the phrasing of takbir has been mentioned in the sunnah. However, some of the Companions such as Salman al-Farsi used to make takbir saying:

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar. La ilaha illa Allah. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi al-hamd (Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest. There is no god save Allah. Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, praise be to Allah).

The order to do this is non-specific since the textual basis for it is unrestricted. Allah the Almighty says, [He wants you to complete the prescribed period] and to glorify Him for having guided you. [Al-Baqarah, 185]

Unrestricted matters must remain unrestricted until something in Islamic law comes to restrict them. Since long ago, Egyptians have used the well-known takbir phrasing of:

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar. La ilaha illa Allah. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi al-hamd. Allahu akbarkabira wa al-hamdullahi kathira wa subhana Allahu bukratan wa asila. La ilaha illa Allah wahdah. Sadaqa wa’dah wa nasara ‘abdah, wa a’azza jundahu wa hazama al-ahzaba wahdah, la ilaha illa Allah. Wa la na’budu illa iya mukhliseen lahu al-deena wa law kkariha al-kafirun. Allahuma salli ‘ala sayidina Mohammed wa ‘ala ali sayidina Mohammed, wa ‘ala as-habi sayidina Mohammed, wa ‘ala ansari sayidina Mohammed, wa ‘ala azwaj sayidina Mohammed, wa ‘ala dhuriyyati sayidina Mohammed wa salim tasliman kathira.

(Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar. There is no god but Allah. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, praise be to Allah. Allah is ever greatest, much praise be to Allah. Glory to Him day and night, there is no god but Allah. He fulfilled His promise, gave victory to His slave, strengthened His army, and He alone we worship, being sincere in our religion even though the believers are averse. O Allah! Make your prayers and blessings be upon our master Mohammed, upon the family of our master Mohammed, upon the companions of our Master Mohammed, and upon the supporters of our master Mohammed, and upon the wives of our master Mohammed and upon the descendants of our master Mohammed, in abundance).

It is a valid legal formulation and Imam Al-Shafi’I commented upon it saying, “If one says Allahu akbar as people do nowadays, it is a good thing. If he adds more takbirs then it is also good. Any remembrance of Allah he adds I deem good.”

Adding praise and blessings upon our master Mohammed and his family, Companions, supporters, wives and descendants at the end of takbirs has a legitimate legal basis. The best form is one that combines mention of Allah and His Prophet. Praising him opens the doors of acceptance for our deeds; the scholars have said that saying prayers upon the Prophet are always accepted—even from hypocrites—since it is related to his Excellency, our master the Prophet.

Open discrimination:Ahmedabad,Gujrat shopping mall charged entry fee from Muslims

10 Aug

Ahmedabad: 9th Aug 2013

Indian Muslims are facing deep discrimination in Modi’s Gujrat where even shopping mall are treating Muslims indiscriminately. On the occasion of Eid-ul Fitr 2013,Shopping Mall charged special entry fee from Muslim youths who came to mall for shopping.

A trip in the celebratory spirit ofEid turned out to be an experience in discrimination for many Muslims in Narendra Modi’s Gujarat. The Himalaya Mall, among the five biggest malls in Ahmedabad, on Friday announced a fee of Rs 20 from visitors from the minority community, to be returned to them only if they bought anything from the mall, and retained if they didn’t.
Many felt it was discrimination against a specific group on Eid when footfalls at the mall peaked.

“The security personnel were being selective. We saw people walking past without paying any fee. When we asked the security guards, they said that they have orders to follow and asked us to pay up. We’re shocked,” said Saiyad Shaikh, a resident of Delhi Chakla, who had come to the mall with his family.

Iliyas Ansari, who stays in Shahpur, said, “We’re willing to pay entry fee provided the mall charges it from everybody. Why discriminate against just one community?”

Deepa Bhatnagar, manager (operations) of Himalaya Mall, told TOI that it was a routine move to check visitors on a busy day. “We had employed the same mechanism in the past to keep troublemakers out. We are planning to charge entry fee during the coming festive season including Diwali. The fee is being returned if any purchase is made, so the entry is practically free,” she said.

Mall officials said that against a routine daily footfall of around 10,000, Friday saw a surge in the numbers to around 30,000. About the selective demand of entry fee, she said the administration had decided to exclude women and senior citizens only. “There was no attempt to exclude anybody or charge specific persons. And, Rs 20 is hardly a deterrent,” she said.

However, this correspondent observed a distinct pattern in which entry was allowed. Youth from specific age groups of the minority community were being scrutinized and asked to pay the fee while whereas women and many others were allowed to walk in without being charged.

Mall officials said last year during Eid they saw two group clashes inside the mall and a glass wall was broken. On Friday, the number of security personnel was increased and a team of policemen was deployed inside as well as outside the mall as authorities did not want any “trouble”.

Any discrimination on the basis of religion is unconstitutional and should not be tolerated. Such communal profiling shows that a deep divide persists in Gujarat, notwithstanding chief minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Sadbhavana’ mission.

अमरोहा ! 26th July 2013

आल इण्डिया जमात रज़ा ऐ मुस्तफा अमरोहा ने सीरिया में नवासी ऐ रसूल हज़रत जैनब और  पैगम्बर हज़रत मुहम्मद साहब के साथी सहाबी हज़रत खालिद बिन वलीद की मज़ार पर आतंकवादियों के द्वारा किये गए हमले की कड़ी भर्त्सना की है !

मीटिंग को संबोधित करते हुए जमात के उपाध्यक्ष डाक्टर अनीस आलम तुर्की ने कहा की पूरी दुनिया भर में आज  अमेरिका की साजिश  पर मुस्लिम राष्ट्रों को तबाह और बर्बाद किया जा रहा है और उसमे खासतौर पर इस्लामी निशानिओं अहले बैयत, सहाबा की मजारो ,सूफी संतो वालिओं के अस्तानो को खासतौर पर निशाना बनाया जा रहा है यह काम अकेले अमेरिका नहीं कर रहा है बल्कि उसने सलफी वहाबी विचारधारा वाले फसादियों की एक फ़ौज तय्यार कर रखी है! यह सलफी आतंकवादी दुनिये भर में मुसलमानों के खून की होली अमेरिका के साथ मिलकर खेल रहे हैं और जहाँ भी जा रहे हैं वहां इस्लामी निशानिओं को खत्म बर्बाद कर रहे हैं !

इसी कड़ी में सीरिया में सुन्नी बनकर उतरे यह फसादी दरअसल वहाबी सलफी है जो न सुन्निओं को छोड़ रहे हैं न शियाओं को और नवासी ऐ रसूल हज़रत जैनब और  पैगम्बर हज़रत मुहम्मद साहब के साथी सहाबी हज़रत खालिद बिन वलीद की मज़ार पर यह ताज़ा हमला इसी साजिश का नतीजा है की मुसलमानो के इतिहास को ही पूरी दुनिया से मिटा दो मगर उनकी यह साजिश कामयाब नहीं हो पायेगी क्यूंकि दुनिया का मुसलमान इस साजिश ने कहा को खूब समझ रहा है !

शहर के सुप्रसिद्ध वकील एडवोकेट शमीम अहमद तुर्क ने कहा की इस घटना की जितनी भी भर्तसना की जाये कम है जो नवासी ऐ रसूल और सहाबी की दरगाह को नहीं छोड़ रहे वोह कैसे मुसलमान हो सकते हैं इन तथाकथित मुसलमानों ने इस्लाम को पूरी दुनिया में बदनाम किया है और इनको पहचानना होगा और इनका इनकी विचरधारा का पूरी तरह बॉयकाट करना होगा!   डाक्टर मुकर्रब हुसैन ने कहा की आलम –ऐ- इस्लाम में आज जो भी अशांति है है वोह सब इसी फसाद की देन है हम सब को इस फसाद को समझना होगा इस फसाद के खिलाफ एक आवाज़ बनकर खड़े होना होगा !

युवा नेता सभासद मुहम्मद यासिर अंसारी ने हमले की मज्ज्मत करते हुए कहा की मुसलमान इन हरकतों को कतई बर्दाश्त नहीं करेंगे और सऊदी अरब को सीरिया के आतंकवादियों का समर्थन करना छोडना होगा !

इस मौके पर मुहम्मद यासिर अंसारी, दानिश वारसी ,फरदीन कादरी,हाफिज मुहम्मद नईम,हाफिज असगर ,याहया खान ,जुनैद काज़मी,हाफिज यामीन समेत जमात रज़ा के पदाधिकारी उपस्थित थे !

Ramazan 1434: An evening at great Sufi Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia’s dargah

25 Jul

at dargah Roza iftar at dargah

Sultan-ul-Mashaikh, Mehboob-e-Ilahi, Hazrat Shaikh Khwaja Syed Muhammad Nizamuddin Auliya R.A (1238 – 3 April 1325) (Urdu: حضرت شیخ خواجہ سیّد محمد نظام الدّین اولیاء‎), also known as Hazrat Nizamuddin, was a famous Sufi saint of the Chishti Order in the Indian Subcontinent, an order that believed in drawing close to God through renunciation of the world and service to humanity. He is one of the great saints of the Chishti order in India.[1] His predecessors were Fariduddin Ganjshakar, Bakhtiyar Kaki and Moinuddin Chishti. In that sequence, they constitute the initial spiritual chain or silsila of the Chisti order, widely prevalent in the Indian subcontinent.

Nizamuddin Auliya, like his predecessors, stressed love as a means of realising God. For him his love of God implied a love of humanity. His vision of the world was marked by a highly evolved sense of secularity and kindness. It is claimed by the 14th century historiographer Ziauddin Barani that his influence on the Muslims of Delhi was such that a paradigm shift was effected in their outlook towards worldly matters. People began to be inclined towards mysticism and prayers and remaining aloof from the world.

Dawat-ul-Quran is distributing Ramadan Charity in India

20 Jul

Narrated by Mu’adh ibn Jabal (Radiallahu ta’ala Anhu) that, The Prophet Muhammad (Sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Charity obliterates sins just as water extinguishes fire.” Tirmidhi #1527

Charity Begins at Home, Perhaps the greatest CHARITY comes

When we are kind to each other, when we don’t judge or categorize someone else,

When we simply give each other The Benefit of the doubt or remain quiet.

CHARITY

is accepting someone’s differences, Weaknesses, and shortcomings;

Having patience with someone who has let us down Or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn’t handle Something the way we might have hoped.

 CHARITY is refusing to take advantage of an other’s weakness & being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us.

 CHARITY is expecting the Best of Each Other.

 The Prophet Muhammad (Sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said:

 “Feed the hungry, visit the sick and set free the captives.” Sahih Al- Bukhari

This year also, Dawat ul Qur’an have come up with a plan to feed the poor Muslims during this auspicious month of Ramadan Kareem. It is our responsibility to utilize the collected funds interims of Zakat/Fitra/Charity/Sadaqa in a manner where it reaches to the needy Muslims.

Alhamdulillah Dawatul Qur’an successfully distributing its Ration kits to hundreds of families living in the slums, many of these families live in shanty huts made from scrap metal and other garbage.

By the Grace of Almighty Allah Dawatul Qur’an works to provide poor needy Muslims with food to help get satisfied hunger.

Mumbai terror attack was faked?

16 Jul

An Indian home ministry former officer has disclosed that a member of the secret service team had accused incumbent governments of ‘orchestrating’ the terror attack on Parliament and the 26/11 carnage in Mumbai.
The former Indian investigator Satish Verma has said that India itself was behind Parliament in Delhi and Mumbai terror attacks.
According to Indian media‚ the fake encounter case involving a senior officer Under-Secretary of Interior Ministry Ishrat Jahan has submitted an affidavit in the court stating that a member of CBI and SIC investigation team Satish Verma told him that in the terrorists attacks on Parliament in Delhi and Mumbai terror attacks were pre-planned.
A key government official, R V S Mani said that Satish Verma, until recently a part of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe team, told him that both the terror attacks were set up “with the objective of strengthening the counter-terror legislation (sic).
Mani has said that Verma narrated that the 13.12. 2001(attack on Parliament) was followed by Pota (Prevention of Terrorist Activities Act) and 26/11 2008 (terrorists’ siege of Mumbai) was followed by amendment to the UAPA (Unlawful Activities Prevention Act).
The official has alleged Verma levelled the damaging charge while debunking IB’s inputs labelling the three killed with Ishrat in the June 2004 encounter as Lashkar terrorists.
Contacted by Times of India, Verma refused to comment. “I don’t know what the complaint is, made when and to whom. Nor am I interested in knowing. I cannot speak to the media on such matters. Ask the CBI,” said the Gujarat cadre IPS officer who after being relieved from the SIT is working as principal of the Junagadh Police Training College.
The attacks were launched to strengthen the anti-terrorism laws.
It may be recalled that India had accused Pakistan of its involvement in both of the attacks and started a propaganda campaign maligning Pakistan based organizations and its agencies for the attacks.
Afzal Guru and Ajmal Kasab have already been hanged by Indian government in parliament and 26/11 cases respectively.
