RAMADHAN AL-MUBARAK

Photo by in-islam.com.The month of Ramadan, which is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is recognized and practiced all around the world for 28 to 30 days every year.

It is one of the five pillars of Islam and is known to be month of reflection and complete submission to Allah (God). Here are five things everyone should know about Ramadan.

1. Ramadan is recognized to be the month in which the first verses of the holy Quran were revealed to the Islamic prophet, Muhammad. Layalat Al-Qadir is said to be the anniversary of the actual day when the Quran was presented to Muhammad and in English it is known as “the night of power.” Layalat al-Qadir usually falls within the last 10 days of Ramadan and is commonly marked by gathering at a mosque and reciting the Quran until sunrise. Recitation of the entire Quran is also important to achieve throughout this month.

2. Eating and drinking is prohibited from sunrise to sunset. Fasting in Arabic is called sawm, and in English that means refrain. Fasting is supposed to teach self-discipline, patience and spirituality. However, participating in Ramadan is much more than not eating and drinking. People are encouraged to restrain themselves from any type of haram, or sin, including backbiting (or being catty), gossip, looking at unlawful things and using obscene words.

3. Breaking the fast is called “Iftar.” The daily fast is traditionally broken with a bite of a fresh or dry date. This is preferred because the prophet Muhammad broke his fast on these middle-eastern fruits. If dates cannot be found, water is a good second choice.

4. Family bonding time is cherished and looked forward to in the month of Ramadan. Everyone’s busy schedules are put on hold as they get together around the dinner table to share the first and most important meal of the day. Typically, large amounts of food are prepared for iftar that include soup, salad, appetizers, a main course and dessert.

5. Eid Al-Fatur is the day that follows the last day of Ramadan. This holiday celebrates the arrival of a the new moon the day after Ramadan ends. Eid celebrations begin with the recitation of the prayer Salat al-Eid and visits with family and close friends. Homes are decorated festively with lights and banners and gifts of clothes or money are exchanged.

Ramadan Mubarak — Have a blessed Ramadan!

LION IS THE KING OF JUNGLE

Lion, The King of the Jungle

Lion Species

These kings of the jungle can weigh between 250 and 550 pounds, depending on sex and age and can grow up to be 14 years old in the wild and over the age of 20 years old in captivity. They become capable at hunting at the age of two and are fully grown after 5 or 6 years. Male lions are distinguishable for their impressive manes, which signifies their masculinity and reflects their health. The darker and thicker the mane, the healthier the lion. It allows the lions to appear stronger and frightening to warn off enemies, particularly humans, and appeals to lionesses that are scientifically proven to mate more with lions with thick and dark manes. Lions with no manes are either genetically inbred or have been castrated.

   

White Lion

The legendary white lion was once thought to be a figment of one’s imagination until less than fifty years ago, when white lion cubs were discovered. This is due a recessive gene and they are not albino as they do have pigmentation in vital parts such as they eye, paw and lip. Their condition is called leucism meaning they only have pigmentation loss in the skin and fur. There are less than fifty white lions in the world.

Man Eaters

Some lions have been known to eat humans however this is thought to only have been done by those who are suffering injuries and disabilities that make it difficult for them to hunt natural prey thus pursuing humans as they are weaker and easier to capture. Several other theories include wanting to defend itself. Another is that their natural habitat is unavailable and not wanting to starve, they attack humans. The thought that lions are predatory towards humans has created ignorance and increased the amount of hunting by encouraging the extermination of these creatures. Humans have taken over territories once belonging to lions and by forcing them to leave their natural home has further demolished their habitat and lifestyle, leaving them to suffer and destruct. Lions are now listed as being a vulnerable species and their population is now irreversibly decreased.

Prides

Lions have a devised a system of living in groups called prides that’s based around related females. The majority of the pride, consisting of approximately 15 individuals and can sometimes even reach 40 individuals, is female with only a handful of male. Male cubs eventually leave and typically become nomads before taking over their own group as the territorial male and father of all cubs. They only leave the pride when challenged by other males and are forced to leave or are killed. Nomads usually travel lone or in pairs, most of the time being related males. If a female nomad attempts to join a pride, it is usually very difficult as the other lionesses reject their intruder who is not related to them.

MALAYSIA HARI INI

 
 
Jerebu kembali untuk tempoh singkat
12:55PM Jul 22 2013  
Jerebu yang melanda semula negara khususnya di sekitar pantai Melaka, Negeri Sembilan dan Selangor dijangka berlaku untuk tempoh singkat, ekoran perubahan corak tiupan angin.

Menurut kenyataan Jabatan Meteorologi Malaysia di Kuala Lumpur hari ini, corak tiupan angin itu akan berubah dalam tempoh dua atau tiga hari dengan angin barat laut kelajuan sederhana akan bertiup di utara Semenanjung dan angin lemah pelbagai hala akan bertiup di bahagian tengah dan selatan.

“Keadaan tiupan angin ini, dijangka akan membawa hujan terutamanya di bahagian pedalaman negeri-negeri di Semenanjung Malaysia,” menurut kenyataan itu.

Malaysia masih mengalami Monsun Barat Daya yang dijangka berterusan sehingga September.

Peningkatan bilangan titik panas dan keadaan cuaca yang agak kering sejak dua hari lepas telah mengakibatkan berlakunya keadaan berjerebu di beberapa kawasan di negeri Pantai Barat Semenanjung, menurut kenyataan itu.

Tiga kawasan iaitu Bukit Rambai, Bandaraya Melaka dan Banting mencatatkan bacaan Indeks Pencemaran Udara (IPU) tidak sihat iaitu masing-masing 122, 112 dan 105, sehingga 9 pagi ini.

Menurut laman sesawang Jabatan Alam Sekitar, IPU di Bukit Rambai dan Bandaraya Melaka telah meningkat berbanding bacaan yang direkodkan pada 6 pagi iaitu 117 dan 104.

Beberapa kawasan di Semenanjung pula menunjukkan bacaan sederhana termasuk Muar (87), Nilai (80), Port Dickson (88), Seremban (74) dan Pelabuhan Klang (80).

Tahap kualiti udara di Sabah, Sarawak dan Labuan masih berada di tahap baik.

Bacaan IPU antara 0 dan 50 dikategorikan baik, 51 hingga 100 (sederhana), 101 ke 200 (tidak sihat), 201 hingga 300 (sangat tidak sihat) dan 300 ke atas sebagai bahaya.

Bulan lepas, Malaysia mengalami jerebu yang agak teruk sehingga ada kawasan mencatatkan tahap pencemaran udara berbahaya dan sekolah terpaksa ditutup sementara.

Pembuka Bicara

    Ketinggian martabat insan di sisi Allah SWT dinilai bukan daripada pangkat atau kedudukan, darjat keturunan, kemewahan atau harta benda, malahan bukan daripada warna kulit dan paras rupa. Sebagai hamba Allah kita seharusnya berusaha untuk mengabdikan jiwa raga terhadap keesaanNya, melaksanakan amalan soleh dan kebajikan setiap ketika serta menjauhi segala larangannya.
                     Terima kasih saya ucapkan kepada semua sumber-sumber ilmu yang membantu melengkapkan    laman ini. Semoga mendapat keberkatan dan keredhaan Allah hendaknya. Segala yang baik itu dari Allah SWT dan kurang itu dari kelemahan saya sendiri.
