True Jihad

Cont'd from page 3

and worship God alone without any sectarian bias or discord. The universal brotherhood can be evidenced during Hajj where pilgrims of all colours and languages showcase unison and self-control in a mass scale.

[22:67] For each congregation, we have decreed a set of rites that they must uphold. Therefore, they should not dispute with you. You shall continue to invite everyone to your Lord. Most assuredly, you are on the right path.

[49:10] The believers are members of one family; you shall keep the peace within your family and reverence GOD, that you may attain mercy.

We can never ever praise and thank God enough for giving us the Quran and so many other bounties. The Quran is muttered as a “remedy” for the sick and mumbled in the graveyard for the “salvation” of the dead. But that’s not its true purpose. It should be made functional in everyday life.  It awards us enlightenment, prudence and sensibility.

These Are All the Words We Need

[31:27] If all the trees on earth were made into pens, and the ocean supplied the ink, augmented by seven more oceans, the words of GOD would not run out. GOD is Almighty, Most Wise.


Ramadan 2017

God willing the month of Ramadan (2:183-7) is coming soon. The new moon times for determining the beginning and ending of Ramadan are given below in UTC (Universal time) or GMT.

May 25, 2017: 19:44 PM (UTC/GMT)

June 24, 2017: 02:31 AM (UTC/GMT)

The actual time for each time zone is relative to UTC. In order to calculate the Ramadan start date, compare the time of the New Moon with the Sunset in your location. If the new moon is before sunset, we fast the next day, God willing.  Similarly, to determine the last day of fasting, compare the time of the next New Moon with the sunset in your location. If the new moon is before sunset, the Ramadan month is complete on that day. Otherwise one fasts the next day.

Based on this, God willing, Ramadan dates for Western USA & Canada, are:  May 26 – June 23, 2017.

For Central and Eastern USA and Canada, South America and parts of West Europe, God willing the dates are: May 26 – June 24, 2017.

For most of Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, God willing the dates are:  May 27 – June 24, 2017.

For more details on how dates are calculated, please refer to September 2009 issue of the Submitters Perspective, and http://masjidtucson.org/Ramadan/
