From the Ramadan into the eid


This year once more Daesh (IS-ISIS-ISIL) proved how much they take the mickey of the holy writings and how they drag their feet at the Koran/Quran and Islam teaching.

Daesh calls for attacks on the West during RamadanThe Ramadan did not seem to be a sacred period for them. They did not mind even to go stronger and to bomb even more places where many Muslims were together.

Normally the ninth lunar month of the Islamic year brings a period of reflection and a period of ṣawm (fasting). In that period abstinence from food, liquids, smoking, and sexual intercourse between the hours of sunrise and sunset should be on the minds of every faithful Muslim. According to the holy scriptures of Islam fasting must be undertaken with spiritual intent (niyyah ), and this intent must be renewed each day before dawn. Mean-spirited words, and thoughts and deeds such as slander, lying, and covetousness negate the value of fasting. So we can wonder what has gone on in the minds of those jihad fighters who did not mind killing many innocent people in this last month.

In May ISIS had announced plans for a series of deadly attacks in Europe and America during this year holy Islamic holiday of Ramadan.

“Ramadan, the month of conquest and jihad. Get prepared, be ready… to make it a month of calamity everywhere for the non-believers…especially for the fighters and supporters of the caliphate in Europe and America,”

said the message in a  31-minute audio clip distributed on Twitter via accounts that usually post the terrorists’ updates, suggesting attacks on military and civilian targets.

“If one of you hoped to reach the Islamic State, we wish we were in your place to punish the Crusaders day and night,”

al Adnani said. He also acknowledged that the terrorist group had suffered a severe hit in recent attacks from the anti-IS coalition but assured viewers that in the end, the group would prevail.

“Defeat is the loss of will and the desire to fight,”

the video announced, explaining that the group would not be deterred even if they lose their strongholds Raqqa and Mosul.

Four days before the football festival Euro 2016 Europe was warned and took the alert serious, after the attacks in Paris and Brussels. Though Jews and Christians were particularly singled out as targets for lone wolf attacks during the holiday, which took place from June 6 to July 5 we could imagine the fighters also looking for targets in Islamic countries and in those which sought to co-operate with Europe.

Only if there is a threat to health the fast may be broken. But he jihad fighters don’t give a rip to the prescriptions fo their so called prophet. They couldn’t care less if with their actions in this holy moth several religious Muslims were killed. Probably they are very much convinced that they do not need an observance of the fast because they do not need receiving pardon for past sins. For them there seems to be no reason to create empathy with the plight of the hungry, and it looks like they find they need no self-control and endurance of deprivation.

As usual that what they themselves do not keep, they do not others to do and as such they frightened all those who even would try not to keep the Ramadan. They crucified and flogged “a number of civilians” in Deir ez-Zor province for breaking the daily fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Local media activist Yassir al-Farhan told ARA News:

The ISIS-led Hisba Police arrested 11 people in Mayadeen for breaking the Ramadan fast. They were flogged with 50 lashes each, and then crucified in the market square downtown. Hundreds of people witnessed the brutal punishment. ISIS is trying to terrorise the people through conducting such punishments in public.

The godless agents of chaos known as Daesh have killed hundreds this week across the world.

  • Fifty dead in Istanbul;
  • twenty in Dhaka, Bangladesh;
  • a horrifying two hundred killed in Baghdad on Friday
  • and now an unknown number in Saudi Arabia.

They just continued to spread their spurs of cruelty and destruction in the week leading up to the end of Ramadan, when the festival of Eid is celebrated around the world. Many of the victims in Baghdad’s marketplace bombings were women and children, buying gifts for their families to be given on Eid.

Al-Masjid an-Nabawī (Arabic: المسجد النبوي‎‎; Prophet’s Mosque)

Before the end of Ramadan whilst many were preparing the three-day festival of prayer and feasting known as ʿAl Id-Fitr or Eid-ul-Fitr. ISIS had a very weird idea about the sweets to be offered to the Muslim community. On July the 4th the terrorists of Daesh (ISIS/ISIL/IS) have proven once and for all that they are nothing but nihilistic sadists with triple bombings in Saudi Arabia. A suicide bomber exploded at the Al-Masjid an-Nabawī – or the Prophet’s Mosque, in the Saudi city of Medina, killing at least four and injuring many more. Bombings also hit mosques in the cities of Qatif and Jeddah. The bombing at the Prophet’s Mosque in the city of Medina was the third attack to hit the kingdom of Saudi Arabia on Monday, following blasts in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah and in the city Qatif. The mosque, which is also known as Al-Masjid an-Nabawi, is located in what was traditionally the centre of Medina, with many hotels and old markets nearby. It is a major pilgrimage site due to its connections to the life of Muhammad and is especially visited by pilgrims from around the world during the final days of the fasting month of Ramadan.

The mosque is considered to be Islam’s second holiest site after the Sacred Mosque, or Masjid-al-Haram, which surrounds the Kaaba in the city of Mecca, so you could wonder why those who claim to fight in name of Allah and his prophet brought ravage to this sacred site.

“There are no more red lines left for terrorists to cross. Sunnis, Shiites [Shias] will both remain victims unless we stand united as one.”

wrote Iran’s Foreign Minister Javed Zarif on Twitter.

HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed.pngMohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, tweeted:

“It’s time we work together to save our religion from these deadly criminal gangs.”

Many who went doing their shopping in the mainly Shia area of Bagdad, for the sugar feast, did find an end between the 165 dead and more than 200 injured, some being badly burned.

The death toll is expected to rise after blasts

Bomb blasts in Baghdad, Iraq, having killed at least 165

The bombing in Karrada is the deadliest in Iraq this year and comes a week after Iraqi security forces recaptured the city of Falluja from Islamic State (IS) militants.

Families were out shopping when the bomb blasted

Police confirmed at least 15 children and six policemen are among the dead after the blast, which struck close to midnight, from a ‘refrigerator van’ packed with explosives.

The explosion caused sparked a huge fire on the main street in which several buildings, including the popular al-Hadi Centre, were badly damaged. It followed a week after Iraqi security forces recaptured the city of Fallujah from Daesh, leaving Mosul as the only Iraqi city under the control of the extremists.

Ramzan – the holy month for Muslims around the world has finally ended and we are just as excited to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr or Feast of Fast-Breaking or the Lesser Feast as everyone else. In Belgium for many Tuesday the 5th was the day of feast, whilst the Gulf Arab countries have announced that the Eid al-Fitr festival to be celebrated on July 6, after failing to sight the moon that marks the start of the three-day festival. (The starting day of Eid varies every year and from country to country depending on geographical location.)

In a fresh alert issued by PIB, Government has announced that all Central Government Administrative Offices will not remain closed July the 6th, on account of Eid-ul-Fitr. Instead, the holiday would be observed on July 7. The decision has been taken by the government after several Muslim clerics and geographical experts have predicted that the Eid moon will not be sighted today.

Since Indian Muslims follow the lunar calendar, the sighting of monsoon determines the end of Ramadan. If the monsoon is sighted today, then it would be a 29-day Ramadan, else the 30th fast would be kept tomorrow. The state of Kerala is expected to observe the most important festival for the Muslim community tomorrow.

In Belgium there is no problem for people getting free on this religious holiday. In the United States many Islamic businesses and organizations may alter their business hours during on Eid al-Fitr. Some Muslim groups in the United States campaign for schools in some parts of the country to allocate Eid al-Fitr as a day off without being penalized on Eid al-Fitr. For example, the Coalition for Muslim School Holidays, which is a group of more than 80 religious and ethnic organizations, have been lobbying to have the two Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha designated as days off in New York City schools.
