World’s Oldest Quran Found in UK – 1370 years old

World’s oldest Quran fragments have been found in UK by the University of Birmingham which is at least 1,370 years old. Tested by ‘Radiocarbon Dating’, the Quran manuscript to be among the earliest in existence.

PhD researcher, Alba Fedeli from University of Birmingham has found the world’s oldest Quran manuscript in the university library. The pages of the world’s oldest Holy Quran has remained the the library for about a century after it has been collected from Middle-East.

These Quran fragments are written on goat or sheep skin and the texts are still legible.

As per Radiocarbon dating tests by the Oxford University Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit, found that the Quran manuscripts were written around year 645, after the death of Prophet Muhammad (ṣallā llāhu ʿalay-hi wa-sallam) on year 632.

Muslims believe the Holy Quran was verbally revealed by Allah, the Almighty, to Prophet Muhammad (SAW) through the angel Gabriel (Jibril), gradually over a period of approximately 23 years, beginning on 22 December 609 CE, when Propeht Muhammad (SAW) was 40, and concluding in 632, the year of his death. Muslims regard the Holy Quran as the most important miracle of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), a proof of his prophethood, and the culmination of a series of divine messages that started with the messages revealed to Adam and ended with Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

Ramadan Calendar 2012

Ramadan (also known as Ramadhan or Ramzan) is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. It is a period of prayer, fasting, charity-giving and self-accountability for Muslims in Pakistan. The first verses of the Koran (Qu’ran) were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) during the last third of Ramadan, making this an especially holy period.

Fasting during Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. It is a time of self-examination and increased religious devotion. It is common to have a pre-fast meal (suhoor) before sunrise and an evening meal (iftar) after sunset during Ramadan. Some groups of people, including the chronically ill, mentally challenged, and the elderly who cannot participate due to health reasons, are exempt from fasting. It is also not allowed to have sexual relations or smoke during the day.

Ramadan is also a time for many Muslims to donate to charity by participating in food drives for the poor, organizing a collection or charity event, and other voluntary activities. They are also encouraged to read the Qur’an often during Ramadan. Muslim men recite the entire Qur’an by the end of Ramadan through special prayers known as Tarawih, which are held in the mosques every night of the month, during which a section of the Qur’an is recited.

All businesses and organizations amend opening hours to suit prayer times during Ramadan in Pakistan. There may also be some congestion around mosques during prayer times, such as in the evenings.

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, which consists of 12 months and lasts for about 354 days. The word “Ramadan” is derived from an Arabic word for intense heat, scorched ground and shortness of food and drink. It is considered to be the most holy and blessed month.

Ramadan Timetable 2012

The month of Ramadan traditionally begins with a new moon sighting, marking the start of the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. Many Muslims (except children, the sick and the elderly) abstain from food, drink, and certain other activities during daylight hours in Ramadan. This is considered as the holiest season in the Islamic year and commemorates the time when the Qu’ran is said to have been revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) . This occurred on Laylat Al-Qadr, one of the last 10 nights of the month. Ramadan ends when the first crescent of the new moon is sighted again, marking the new lunar month’s start. Eid-ul-Fitr is the Islamic holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.

Ramadan Calendar 2012

Ramadan (also known as Ramadhan or Ramzan) is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. It is a period of prayer, fasting, charity-giving and self-accountability for Muslims in Bangladesh. The first verses of the Koran (Qu’ran) were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) during the last third of Ramadan, making this an especially holy period.

Fasting during Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. It is a time of self-examination and increased religious devotion. It is common to have a pre-fast meal (suhoor) before sunrise and an evening meal (iftar) after sunset during Ramadan. Some groups of people, including the chronically ill, mentally challenged, and the elderly who cannot participate due to health reasons, are exempt from fasting. It is also not allowed to have sexual relations or smoke during the day.

Ramadan is also a time for many Muslims to donate to charity by participating in food drives for the poor, organizing a collection or charity event, and other voluntary activities. They are also encouraged to read the Qur’an often during Ramadan. Muslim men recite the entire Qur’an by the end of Ramadan through special prayers known as Tarawih, which are held in the mosques every night of the month, during which a section of the Qur’an is recited.

All businesses and organizations amend opening hours to suit prayer times during Ramadan in Bangladesh. There may also be some congestion around mosques during prayer times, such as in the evenings.

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, which consists of 12 months and lasts for about 354 days. The word “Ramadan” is derived from an Arabic word for intense heat, scorched ground and shortness of food and drink. It is considered to be the most holy and blessed month.

Ramadan Timetable 2012

The month of Ramadan traditionally begins with a new moon sighting, marking the start of the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. Many Muslims (except children, the sick and the elderly) abstain from food, drink, and certain other activities during daylight hours in Ramadan. This is considered as the holiest season in the Islamic year and commemorates the time when the Qu’ran is said to have been revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) . This occurred on Laylat Al-Qadr, one of the last 10 nights of the month.  Ramadan ends when the first crescent of the new moon is sighted again, marking the new lunar month’s start. Eid-ul-Fitr is the Islamic holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
Ans so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one

And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear
And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear
And so this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
Ans so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear
War is over over
If you want it

Zakat Calculator 2011 – Calculate your Zakat now

Zakat Calculator 2011

Zakat Calculator 2011

Zakat Calculator 2011 is essential for everyone, because Zakat is one of the five basic pillars of Islam. It is an act of worship which “eliminates miserliness  and  greed  from  hearts  and  consolidates  the  Islamic  economy,  leading  to  its stability and prosperity”. If you  fulfill this duty the Quran and hadith promise abundant reward in this world and in the hereafter – but if you evade zakat the Quran and hadith warn of the consequences. Zakat is obligatory like prayers and fasting. So, calculate your Zakat now with Zakat Calculator 2011   .

Charity (which includes zakat) is mentioned in at least eighty different places in the Quran and it is usually mentioned with Prayer. Both practices are fundamental in importance.

The Holy Quran states:

  • And they have been commanded no more than this: to worship Allah offering Him sincere devotion being True (in faith); to establish regular prayer; and to practice regular charity; and that is the religion right and straight. (98:5).
  • Those who Rehearse the Book of Allah establish regular prayer and spend (in charity) out of what we have provided for them secretly can openly hope for a Commerce that will never fail. (35:29).
  • The Believers must (eventually) win through – Those who humble themselves in their   prayers;   Who  avoid   vain  talk;   Who   are   active   in   deeds   of charity…….These will be the heirs, Who will inherit Paradise: they will dwell therein (for ever). (23:1-10).

You should use Zakat Calculator 2011 because it is fully complies with Islam, as our The Prophet (PBUH) clearly identified the assets that should be included in a zakat calculation and the zakat rates to be applied to these assets/income. At the time of the Prophet (PBUH) the common assets were gold and silver, livestock, business assets and land and crops. These assets are today complimented by “new” investments such as: shares and associated stock market instruments, property, superannuation funds, etc. Since these “new” investments did not exist at the time of the Prophet (PBUH), jurists/scholars differ on how they should be treated for zakat.
