  • Our Collective Responsibility Towards Refugees | Mohamad’s Ramadan

    At a time when many are losing their livelihoods due to Covid-19 measures, some of the hardest hit are those who were already in financially and socially vulnerable positions. Refugees and internally displaced people are facing increasing uncertainty and instability. A little support from each of us can go a long way in providing for basic needs. Families like Mohamad’s whose lives have been disrupted by conflict, separated from family, community and a means for a livelihood, are able to meet basic needs through necessary cash support. UNHCR supports thousands of families living in displacement. This year’s Ramadan campaign will focus on funding to provide shelter, food, clean water and cash assistance to the most vulnerable refugees and IDPs, namely orphans, female headed households, and the elderly in Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. “This year more than ever, your contributions are critical to saving lives." - Filippo Grandi, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.   This Ramadan #EveryGiftCounts https://bit.ly/HalalTripRMDN...

  • How To Celebrate Eid Al-Fitr This Year In 2020: 12 Things To Note

    How to celebrate Eid al-Fitr this year? Here are 12 things to note for this year's Eid al-Fitr celebration in 2020. 1. When is Eid al-Fitr 2020 Image Credit: Rumman Amin on Unsplash Eid al Fitr is the 1st day of the month of Shawwal. The 10th month in the Islamic calendar (the month after Ramadan). Some regions will depend on the sighting of the moon to decide on the 1st of Shawwal and some will decide on it based on calculations.  For most regions, Eid al Fitr 2020 will be on the 24th of May. Some regions may celebrate Eid on the 23rd May or the 25th May. A very small number may even celebrate on the 26th May. It is best to check with your closest Mosque to find out about the day of Eid. 2. Pay Sadaqa-ul-Fitr Image Credit: Bayu on Unsplash Ensure you have paid Sadaqat-ul-fitr for you and all your dependents before the Eid Salat. Check with the local Mosque on the amount to be paid per person. Amounts recommended in some countries: Singapore: S$5.10 (normal rate) and S$7.50 (higher rate) per head Malaysia: RM7 UK: £4 per person. Narrated Nafi (RA): “Ibn `Umar (RA) said, "The Prophet (SAW) made incumbent on every male or female, free man or slave, the payment of one Sa' of dates or barley as Sadaqat-ul-Fitr (or said Sadaqa-Ramadan)."  The people then substituted half Sa' of wheat for that. Ibn `Umar (RA) used to give dates (as Sadaqat-ul-Fitr). Once there was scarcity of dates in Medina and Ibn `Umar gave barley.  'And Ibn `Umar used to give Sadaqat-ul- Fitr for every young and old person. He even used to give on behalf of my children. Ibn `Umar used to give Sadaqat-ul-Fitr to those who had been officially appointed for its collection. People used to give Sadaqat-ul-Fitr (even) a day or two before the Eid. (Sahih-al-Bukhari) Narrated Ibn `Umar (RA): The Prophet (SAW) ordered the people to pay Zakat-ul-Fitr before going to the Eid prayer. (Sahih-al-Bukhari) It was narrated that Ibn Abbas (RA) said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) enjoined Zakatul-Fitr as a purification for the fasting person from idle talk and obscenities, and to feed the poor. Whoever pays it before the (Eid) prayer, it is an accepted Zakah, and whoever pays it after the prayer, it is (ordinary) charity.  (Sunan Ibn Majah) 3. Reciting the Takbir Image Credit: Falaq Lazuardi on Unsplash Recite Takbir individually and with family from Maghrib time of the day before Eid day until before the Eid Salat. اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ  لَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللَّهُ وَاَللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ  اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلِلَّهِ الْحَمْد 4.

If it is found to be perfect, he will be safe and successful; but if it is incomplete, he will be unfortunate and a loser. If any shortcoming is found in the obligatory Salat, the Glorious and Exalted Rubb will command to see whether His slave has offered any voluntary Salat so that the obligatory Salat may be made up by it. Then the rest of his actions will be treated in the same manner." (Sunan-at-Tirmidhi) 6. Take a Shower 7. Wear your Best Garments 8. Put on Perfume It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbas (RA) said: “The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: ‘This day is an ‘Eid (festival) which Allah has ordained for the Muslims.

And upon you (I urge to use) is the tooth stick.” (Sunan Ibn Majah) 9. Eat Something before the Eid Prayers Photo by Mona Mok on Unsplash Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah's Messenger (SAW) never proceeded (for the prayer) on the Day of `Id-ul-Fitr unless he had eaten some dates. Anas also narrated: The Prophet (SAW) used to eat odd number of dates. (Sahih-al-Bukhari) 10. Performing Eid Prayer at Home Image Credit: Jeremy Yap on Unsplash This year is different and most of us will be performing Eid prayers at home with family. How to perform Eid prayer at home: Appoint someone in the family to lead the prayers It was narrated from Abu Sa'eed (RA) that the Prophet (SAW) said: "when there are three people let one of them lead the prayer, and the one who is most entitled to lead the prayer is the one who has most knowledge of the Qur'an." (Sunan an-Nasa'i) There is no Azan or Iqamah for Eid prayers Two Rakats prayer with a certain number of additional Takbeers in each Rakat The exact number of additional Takbeer may slightly vary depending on the Madhab you follow. This is the guidelines from Singapore Mufti's office: Recommended Surahs to be recited It was narrated from An-Nu'man bin Bashir that: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) used to recite on the two 'Eids and on Friday: ‏سَبِّحِ اسْمَ رَبِّكَ الأَعْلَى  (Glorify the Name of Your Lord, the Most High) and هَلْ أَتَاكَ حَدِيثُ الْغَاشِيَةِ‏ (Has there come to you the narration of The Overwhelming?) Sometimes the two ('Eid and Jumu'ah) occurred on the same day, and he would recite them (these two Surahs). (Sunan an-Nasa'i) Khutbah after prayers is not compulsory as in Friday prayers. Many Mosques are live streaming Khutbah that you could listen to. It was narrated that Abdullah bin Sa’ib (RA)said: “I attended the ‘Eid prayer with the Messenger of Allah (SAW).

    "This year, the holy month of Ramadan greets us at a time of great global suffering. We are all vulnerable in the face of this pandemic.

  • Our Collective Responsibility Towards Refugees | Aya’s Reflections

    Aya Fadan, Senior Community Based Protection Assistant in Jordan © UNHCR Aya Fadan is a Senior Community Based Protection Assistant for UNHCR in Jordan. These are her reflections from her experiences at UNHCR working directly with refugees. “When I applied to this job, I was thinking of the challenges I might face. I live in a peaceful place and now I will be helping people who are escaping war and seeking asylum. For us, we usually pack whenever we travel for a vacation, or when moving to another house, maybe to a more luxurious one. But we see the other side of travel here in the camp. The people who packed their essential items not knowing where they will go, but just to save their souls and their families. That is what inspires me to support them and be more understanding of their emotional and physical needs.  My role is to support the refugees who have suffered from war and displacement regardless of their differences, and to ease their access to services. I used to provide awareness sessions for refugees in topics like education, health, protection and food-security. I also provided sensitized awareness sessions for women and girls, to raise their knowledge about their rights, self-confidence and respect, empowerment, and the availability of protection services. Me being a female most likely gave other female refugees the confidence to approach me and share their personal sensitive matters. They feel comfortable to talk about their concerns. This also gives me the chance to support them and lead them to the self-development activities that are available in the camp, such as physical well-being, sewing, and education related courses. After five years of experience in this humanitarian field, I feel as a woman responsible to keep on providing the needed assistance, with the same passion that I started with on day one, and to keep on following up on their needs despite the limited available services we might have.”    How can you support UNHCR’s on-the-ground work with refugees?

  • Travel In The Future: Travel Trends You Should Look Out For In 2020

    Halal tourism is a booming market, expanding rapidly in the global trend. The demand is speculated to increase in years to come as the Muslim population around the world is growing. We have seen how some destinations have embraced the Halal tourism trend by ensuring they are Muslim friendly, providing Halal cuisine and the information needed for one to consider when traveling. Let's have a look at some of the travel trends that you should look out for in 2020! via GIPHY 1. The "Muslim Social Impact Travel" Spirit Credit Image: Annie Spratt on Unsplash  Islam has taught us to foster good relations with our society. We are taught to care for the less fortunate, extending help and charity as much as possible. Leading a balanced life and being eco-friendly without causing harm to nature is also in tune with Islamic beliefs. The younger generation seeks to make more cultural and social impact when travelling instead of just travelling for leisure. Apart from having a fun trip, they want a trip that adds values and make meaningful experiences. These trips enable them to give back to society, making a positive impact and minimize harm to the environment.Opting to buy from local businesses over large corporations is an example of keeping this spirit alive. In this manner, the skills and livelihood of locals are recognized and valued. Combining travel with volunteering has been made possible too. An organization like WWOOF (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms) links volunteers to farmers in building a sustainable community. How else can you attain an enjoyable yet fulfilling trip with incredible learning experiences?  With the rise of this travel spirit, service providers that implement travel packages that align with social values are more likely to attract a greater pool of audiences.  2. Catering Off-track Destinations to Muslim Travelers Credit Image: Andreas Wagner on Unsplash Over-tourism can be a factor for popular destinations to lose its hype. More and more travelers are searching for the less-traveled destinations, away from tourist hotspots. These destinations are less crowded and often provides a more authentic experience. The fact that it is untainted by tourists may be attractive to Muslim travelers as they are more attracted to a unique and exotic experience before they become mainstream. However, the setback of travelling to these destinations lies in certain travel considerations of a Muslim traveler, like the ability to find Halal food.  An example of an off-track destination is Brunei. Brunei receives approximately 259,000 visitors annually, which makes it a less-traveled destination. Brunei will be a perfect destination for a Muslim traveler as they cater to the Muslim travel needs. With these consumer preferences in mind, destinations may have to embrace the diverse needs of travellers in order to continue attracting them, which includes catering to the faith-based needs of Muslim travellers. 3. Overcoming Islamophobia  Credit Image: T. Chick McClure on Unsplash The issue of Islamophobia is no longer foreign to most of us. We have seen how it has elevated to hate crime in certain parts of the world. It might be a concern for a Muslim traveler to consider going on a trip to destinations where Islamophobia is widespread. Like any other travelers, safety and security are a priority for Muslim travelers.  As we enter Halal Travel 2.0 with technology as an important driver, we find that more Muslim travelers are able to make meticulous decisions with regards to their next destination. This is attributed to the increase in digital tools as well as the effect of technology in making the world more interconnected. We can get information within seconds with official news channels and social media. The unlimited information obtained through social media and official news sites thus assures both current and future travelers when making informed decisions for their next destination. This becomes important as destinations continue to provide more Muslim-friendly services and are dedicated to improving the local climate for travelers.  4. The Global Travel Wallet Credit Image: Jonas Leupe on Unsplash As mentioned earlier, technology continues to influence our daily life. Advanced security in face recognition and thumbprint technology makes e-wallet and mobile payment possible. It has gained popularity amongst travelers, providing ease while guaranteeing safety. More merchants are making digital payment methods available, promising efficiency, security, and convenience for travelers.Muslim travelers can thus enjoy digital transactions without worries as FinTech companies offer value-added service. Traditional banks understand the need for e-commerce payment transactions for their Muslim clients, thus motivating them to introduce financial services to facilitate travel needs.  5. Drivers of Muslim Female Travelers Growth Credit Image: Noorulabdeen Ahmad on Unsplash With almost 45% of the Muslim travel market comprising of Muslim women, we can expect to see more activities caterred to this group of travelers. According to another report by Crescentrating published last year, two-thirds of the women travelers are below the age of 40. And half of them use social media to arrange for accommodation and dining. The influence of social media also shapes the activities engaged by these group of travelers.A small travel company, Intrepid Travel offers tours that cater to women only. Although the choices are currently limited, female travelers can experience the culture and traditions that another country has to offer.We hope that with more initiatives driven by a company, it will inspire more companies to run similar or better initiatives to provide such inclusive services that cater to the female Muslim travelers. This will capture the market of female Muslim travelers with more services like these in place.  6. The Rise Of Halal Gastronomy   Credit Image: Fabrizio Magoni on Unsplash With the growth of Muslim travelers around the world, destinations have seen the need to expand the Halal food industry. More services and operators are redesigning their culinary activities to include Muslim-friendly gastronomy tours and activities. Muslim travelers are also keen in participating in food tours and festivals as an experience to immerse in different cultural experiences. This would impact the food industry and lead to new developments to diversify and include the Halal culinary.  Taking Japan as an example, it has embraced the Halal gastronomy and has been organizing Halal Expo every year since 2014. As of last year, there has been a growth in vendors that offers culinary ranging from Halal to Muslim-friendly food and beverages. 7. The Daud Kim Effect Credit Image: Kushagra Kevat on Unsplash Daud Kim is a former Korean singer turn popular vlogger, who now brings his viewers with him through his journey into Islam. With massive subscribers in his Youtube channel, it is no doubt that young Muslims find him relatable and enjoy his content.His videos have been inspirational as he shares with the viewers the faith-based needs of a Muslim. His simple yet unique style videos doesn't only cater to Muslims, but also non-Muslims. Apart from promoting a Muslim-friendly environment and sharing travel needs to the world, the Daud Kim Effect also continue to play a significant role in reducing stereotypes and changing preconceived perceptions of Muslim travelers. Through creating a positive impact, this trend will help in shaping a better travel market for Muslim travelers. 8. The Ertugrul Phenomenon Credit Image: Krists Luhaers on Unsplash It is no surprise that dramas and movies can influence one's decision to travel. Movies like Lord of The Rings had travelers flock to New Zealand. Meanwhile, the Korean Wave, which saw the spread of K-dramas and K-pop all over the world, has made South Korea a popular tourist destination. Resurrection Ertugrul, a Turkish television drama series inspired by Islamic history and heritage, is one of those well-produced shows that has made Sorgut, the town where this series was shot at, a popular tourist destination.Apart from its entertainment value, these shows have effectively revived the interest of Muslims to learn more about these past figures and history. The increasing popularity of these shows will continue to impact the travel market as it piques the travelers' curiousity. via GIPHY There you have it, the travel trends that you should look out for in 2020. We've seen how there's a rise in the Halal tourism trend as many countries are adopting more Muslim-friendly services. With these travel trends increasingly catered to the Muslim community, Muslim travellers can be rest assured and plan their next destination with ease. ...
