  • #MyFirstRamadan: Retreat from the Pull of Dunya

    "Innalilahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon""To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return."(Quran Surat Al Baqarah 2:156) I had been fasting since I was 7, the short December Ramadan days, with the sun setting at the 4pm meant that Ramadan Iftar was just a late lunch or early dinner, broken with dates. I have been fasting for as long as I can remember yet my first Ramadan was not until I reached the age of 16. This contradiction may surprise you, how had I been fasting since 7 but my first Ramadan was 11 years later? The answer is simple, fasting at my young age was an act of not eating whilst the sun was out but it was at the age of 16 that fasting became a spiritual fulfillment that spoke to my soul and renewed my Imaan. In my childhood days, fasting had been an experience that was rewarded with splendid arrays of food at the end of the day. My cultural heritage meant that I was awarded with food from all over the world. Each day was a test that would be rewarded with the prize of Algerian delicacies, Indian spicy treats and French fineries. Not to ignore that the pride I made my parents feel was a reward within itself. However, all these rewards were ones that came from the outside. As a materialistic child counting down the days for Eid al-Fitr, the Ramadan spirit was around me not as a month or spirituality but a month of reward. At the age of 16, I experienced an event that would change my perspective in most things in life, including the Ramadan that came after. I hadn’t realised that experience could so deeply shake belief and form a new angle of perspective in life. I went to my first Janazah. What might seem astounding was that I did not know the lady that had passed away. She was the grandmother of a student acquaintance yet her impact on my life was huge (I hope she receives barakah from any good deeds I do). Initially, amongst the Muslim students it spread that the Janazah would take place at 1pm not far from our school. I was sceptical, I had never been to a Janazah before yet by the grace of Allah a friend told me this Hadith; Whoever attends the funeral procession and offers the Janazah Salah, will get a reward equal to one ‘qirat’, and whoever accompanies it till burial, will get a reward equal to two ‘qirats’. It was asked, “What are two qirats?” He answered, “Like two huge mountains.” (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1325 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 945) It felt as though I was obliged to go. It was my duty as a Muslim. Leaving through the backgate of school, we bunked our afternoon lessons (an easy sacrifice in the Dunya for the sake of the Akhira). Upon arrival to the Mosque, we approached the grieving granddaughter offering our condolences, I listened carefully to the words of the girls around me. When it reached my turn I mumbled what they had said. "Innalilahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon" To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return." (Quran Surat Al Baqarah 2:156) I had no idea what I had said. I followed what the women around me did. They offered two Salaah Raka’ah and upon completion raised their hands to make Dua. I could do that and I busied myself looking like I could do the same. My friend approached me asking if I knew the Janaza process and I shook my head in shame. There was no judgement that day simply a re-education that would change my life. I listened carefully and when the Janazah began, I followed the process. At the end we sat in a circle with the sniffling Granddaughter and the daughter of the deceased woman. We were waiting to see the body. We sent blessings and peace onto the Grandmother of the acquaintance. Finally the coffin rolled in, the white sheet was lifted and my curiosity was answered. There laid a small lady, pale and peaceful. The smile on her lips gripped my heart. It was the first time I had seen a dead person. To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. The image still grips my heart now. It was in that moment that I realised I had wasted 16 years of my life. My life may not be as long as this woman and I had to change my ways, urgently. From that day onwards I made the effort to find passion in my Deen, to educate my ignorance and stop living for this Dunya. My first Ramadan came less than 3 months later. With this new attitude, the effect of Ramadan was not something that made my stomach ache and my head imagine the gifts I’d receive, instead this Ramadan was the first time I gave myself targets to achieve. Tarawih was still hard for my hyperactive mind but there was a new maturity in my way of coping with the hours on foot. I held a Quran following the words, focusing on the words I knew the meaning of and the recitation of the Imam. I no longer counted down the days to Eid, but regretted that the days were passing by me. I tried to control my temper around my family and focused on the importance of my niyyah in simple everyday actions to gain more reward. I can only say that it hasn’t been a perfect road in keeping this new perspective alive and fresh. As humans we go through ups and downs, feel highs and lows. Whilst, that Ramadan was a high, the ones that came after needed me to mentally and emotionally motivate myself. We pray five times a day to be constantly reminded of our time on earth, we humans are weak, we change our minds, our emotions affect our judgement. We need the reminder 5 times a day to centre us. Ramadan comes once a year and it’s role is the same; centre our souls on the Akhira. A monthly cleanse to recharge us for the year to come. This Dunya can be hard but the month of Ramadan is a blessing. It’s God’s way of showing his love for us, by locking the Shayateen away he enable us to focus on ourselves in an environment that feels lighter than the rest of the year. So, now I can only await for this opportunity to recharge my Iman, I’m excited for Ramadan. It’s a mental and emotional retreat from the pull of the Dunya. What about you? Are you ready for this blessed month?...

  • 5 Unique Festivals in Japan That You Should Experience

    Japanese festivals or ‘matsuri’, are highly anticipated by the locals and tourists alike - and are a big part of Japanese culture that offer visitors a truly fantastic experience. These unique festivals only found in Japan often feature processions and traditional dancers in colourful costumes or floats – which are quite a sight to behold. Check out this list of Japanese festivals and find out all about Japanese festivals that you just can’t miss out on.     Credits -   1) Sapporo Yuki Matsuri Picture Credit - The Sapporo Yuki Matsuri, also known as Sapporo Snow Festival, is held in Sapporo, Hokkaido every year in February is one of the most exciting seasonal festivals in Japan where you will get to see carved, glistening ice sculptures. The history of the Sapporo Snow Festival dates to 1950, when school students created just six ice sculptures for a one-day event but ended up attracting over a 1,000 people. The festival eventually became extremely popular.   The Odori site located in Odori Park is the main area for viewing the larger and impressive sculptures, while the Susukino Site usually displays over hundred crystal-like sculptures – statues of famous figures or buildings can be seen too. The lights create an almost ethereal glow at night but are just as beautiful during the day too. While you're there, don’t forget to take part in fun activities to beat the cold winter – such as ice skating or take an exciting ride down the popular Tsu Dome Slide.   2) Sendai Tanabata Mature   Picture Credit - The Sendai Tanabata Masturi also known as the Star Festival, is another one to add to your list of Japanese festivals that you cannot miss.

Tanabata celebrates the meeting of the stars Altair and Vega (known as Orihime and Hikoboshi in Japan) that are separated by the Milky Way.   You will see colourful hand-crafted streamers which represent threads of a loom decorating bamboo poles which will be situated along brightly lit shopping arcades and streets, creating a beautiful effect throughout the city. It’s traditional for people to write wishes and hang them on a bamboo branch with other paper decorations that represent prosperity and ward off bad luck. You can also enjoy live entertainment, stage performances and traditional food at festival spaces in Kotodai Park and other surrounding parks.   3) Tokushima Awa Dori Festival   Picture Credit - yourguidetojapan.weebly.comAwa Dori  is one of the largest dance festivals in the world and one of the most exciting seasonal festivals in Japan.

Origins of the parade date back to the 1500s where celebrations of the Tokushima Castle opening ceremony resulted in the townsfolk forming a lively impromptu procession. A procession of traditional dancers dressed in coloured yukatas perform the nagashi dance during daytime with musicians playing drums, gongs, flutes and three-stringed instruments on the streets of the Tokushima Prefecture.

The word ‘shan shan’ refers to the sound of jingling bells on the umbrellas. The festival is based on the legend dating back to the Edo period where an old man danced during the drought season and prayed to a village god for rain.   You can witness a parade of dancers dressed in yukatas twirling decorative paper umbrellas and Japanese swords. Hundreds and thousands of dancers would rotate their colourful hand-made umbrella, to make pleasant chimes from the bells to complement the beautifully formed rainbow drawing on their umbrella.   5) Aomori Nebuta Matsuri   Picture Credit - www.kyuhoshi.comAomori Nebuta Matsuri is one of the largest and most exciting seasonal festivals in Japan that attract large numbers of tourists from around the world to Aomori prefecture in Japan.

  • Tips for Traveling During Ramadhan

    Fasting during the month of Ramadan is compulsory upon all Muslim men and women who are of sane mind and mature age. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam, and refraining from fasting out of neglect or indifference is a major sin. Fasting is the only act of ibadah that Allah (sub) says Muslims do for Him; all other ibadah we do benefits us alone.   If you are in a predicament this Ramadan in regards to having to travel during Ramadan, there are a few ways in which you can make it easy upon yourself and also make sure that you do not miss out on the benefits this holy month. Here are a few tips that tell you how to travel during Ramadan, and how to make fasting while traveling easier for you:   1) Carry an Emergency Iftar Kit Picture Credit -   If you are going to be traveling and fasting during Ramadan, it’s a good idea to have an emergency iftar kit in your purse of backpack; it will definitely come in handy in case you are stuck in a situation where you cannot get any food or drink when maghrib is nearing. A few dates, a small bottle of water or a juice box, and a packet of biscuits should be perfectly enough to help you break fast while traveling and satiate your hunger until you get to your destination or you find a place to get proper food.   2) Shortening Prayers   Even though you are traveling and fasting during Ramadan, all concessions granted to the traveler during normal days still apply. This includes performing jam’ qasr, or shortening and combining your prayers. This way you can shorten the length of your journey, and also don’t need to burden yourself.   Mu’aadh (rali) narrated: “We went out with the Messenger of Allah (sal) on the campaign of Tabook, and he used to pray Zuhr and ‘Asr together, and Maghrib and ‘Isha’ together.” – [Sahih-al-Muslim]   It’s important to note that it is only permissible to combine Zuhr with Asr, and Maghrib with Isha. No other combination of prayers will be accepted. And while Zuhr, Asr, and Isha prayers may be shortened to two rakats instead of four, reducing the number of rakats for Maghrib and Fajr is not allowed.   3) Time Your Travels   Try and time your travels so that they do not fall within the fasting day whenever possible. If you are traveling abroad, and the distance is not too great, try and pick a flight that leaves after iftar and reaches before fajr. This way, you’ll be able to fast without disruption.   4) Plan Ahead   If you are planning on traveling and fasting during Ramadan, and you intend on staying in a certain place for one or more nights, do some research and find out where the mosques are near the place you are planning to stay at. This way, you can still perform Taraweeh prayers even when traveling during Ramadan. And if you are unsure of where to break your fasts in an unfamiliar place, a mosque is always a safe bet.   5) Carry a Qur’an   If you are going to be traveling, unless you’re the one driving, there are bound to be extended periods of time when you will have nothing to do but stare out the window. One of the ways to utilize such time is to spend it reciting the Qur’an. You can buy a set of mini Qur’ans that come in tiny separate books for each chapter. They are compact and portable, and all you have to do is slip a couple into your bag. Alternatively, you can also download any one of the many Qur’an mobile apps that are available for smartphones, because, chances are you will probably have one of those with you!   6) Do Dhikr   Just like reciting the Qur’an during your journey when traveling abroad during Ramadan, you can also use that time to do dhikr. If you need some help, you can get yourself a mini dhikr book or download some onto your smartphone.   7) Download a Mobile App   A Salah app will help you keep track of prayer timings, and send you reminders when it is time for you to pray and break your fast. Almost all Salah apps also have a function of showing the Qibla, which can come in really handy when you are in an unfamiliar place looking to offer your prayers. You can download the HalalTrip app to help you find mosques, Halal restaurants and Muslim-friendly hotels near you.   8) Breaking Fast While Traveling   In regards to breaking fast while traveling, you must always have iftar when the sun sets in your destination country (or when maghrib arrives wherever you are). The time zones of the country you left do not count, even if you did begin your fast there.   9) Postpone Your Journey   If you are able to put your journey off until after Ramadan is over (or if you are a woman, you can time it to coincide with your monthly period when you won’t be fasting anyway), this would be the best and easiest solution for you.     10) Skip the Fast   “(Fasting) for a fixed number of days; but if any of you is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed number (should be made up) from days later.” - [Quran 2:184]   Fasting while one is travelling is not compulsory, this is one thing that all scholars are in agreement upon. Among the people who are exempt from fasting along with the young, elderly, disabled, etc. is also the traveler. Islam has been made easy for us, and Allah does not wish to burden us.   But it’s important to note that unlike the categories of people mentioned previously, the skipped fast of a traveler must be made up once the journey has been completed, just like the menstruating women must make up her missed fasts after the month of Ramadan.   Regardless of whether you are planning on traveling and fasting during Ramadan or not, we hope you have a blessed month!    ...

Making the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca might be a bit hard for those who are older due to the amount of physical exertion, but it has not stopped travelers from finding more convenient travel options when possible. So age might affect what kind of Mecca travel packages a person might select when necessary or how they prepare themselves for the Islamic pilgrimage.   How Age Might Affect Traveling With Kids And Family When traveling with kids and family, it can be hard to please everyone and often times family vacation destinations might make children or teenagers feel bored if there are no interesting activities or sights to see for them. It will be quite great to include something a variety of activities, so that everyone can have a good time.
