The tone of Australia’s national conversation around Islam and terrorism leaves Muslims feeling hurt, angry and bewildered. What purpose does it serve?

By Gay Alcorn
Every now and then, you get to understand — even just for a moment — someone else’s point of view. You might have assumed you knew all about it, but it is rare to feel it, to glimpse what life is like for another human being.
At a forum organised by the Islamic Council of Victoria last week, a group of around 100 people turned the tables on five journalists about media coverage of Muslims, terrorism, counter-terrorism laws, police raids, multiculturalism and the hijab. It was polite and welcoming — we all got a box of chocolates at the end — but what people wanted us to understand was that to be a Muslim in Australia now was to feel hurt, angry and bewildered. People spoke about waking up, day after day, to a relentless focus on terrorism and its implied or specified links to Islam and Australia’s almost 500,000 Muslims.

Muslims across Australia and much of the Pacific will bid each other “Ramadan Mubarak” or “May your Ramadan be blessed” from today, as they begin a month of fasting and feasting over the ninth month of the Islamic calendar.

Husband and wife Abdulrahman Mawar and Asma Yusra are happy to live in the heart of celebrations in the western Sydney suburb of Lakemba, where the large Islamic population will fast from sunrise to sunset.

“We believe that when you deprive your physical body of food, your spiritual body becomes more aware,” said Ms Yusra, who works as a Medicare Local project manager.

This could be your last Ramadaan

This could be your last Ramadaan


 

REMEMBER the beginning of Ramadan last year: the festive supermarkets with their jampacked aisles, the makeshift roadside stalls outside restaurants selling crisp sambusas and subiya, the sounds of Adhan emanating from Masajid...

My house overlooked a Maghsalat-Al-Amwaat Al-Khairiyyah (a charitable organization which prepares bodies for burial in the Islamic manner), and as I walked home from the neighborhood supermarket laden with packages of food and other essentials in preparation of the next day’s fast, I caught sight of a family accompanying a bier in a hearse. The women huddled together, sobbing quietly, while the men stood at a distance in somber silence.

Udhiya (Qurbani)

By E-Islam Team

 

What is Udhiya? 

 

‘Udhiya’ is an Arabic word meaning "blood sacrifice", and ‘Qurbani’ is an Urdu and Persian word derived from the Arabic word "Qurban" which literally means an act performed to seek Allah Ta’ala’s pleasure. It is technically used for the sacrifice of an animal slaughtered for the sake of Allah Ta’ala.

 

The sacrifice of an animal has always been a recognised form of worship in many religions, but in the ‘Shariah’ (Islamic sacred law) of The Last and Final Messenger of Allah Ta’ala (Peace be upon him), the sacrifice of an animal has been recognised as a form of ibadah (worship) during the three days of the month Zul Hijjah, namely the 10th, 11th, and 12th .
