Do’s And Don’ts For All Muslim To Remember During Ramadhan

Published

on

For the holy month of Ramadhan this year, Malaysians have been given the opportunities to finally have Bazaar Ramadhan and also to be able to do Tarawih prayer. Even with the opportunities given, everyone must remember to still follow the SOPs that have been implemented so that these opportunities would not be taken back and we will lose our chance to collect as many rewards and blessings that we can get for the month of Ramadhan.

Speaking about rewards and blessings, there are actually still so many things that we can do and also that we can avoid so that we could still be fully focus on doing the best during the holy month. This topic can be as something for everyone to refresh about because people tend to forget things over time.

Do’s During The Month Of Ramadhan

1) Recite The Holy Quran

The month of Ramadan is an opportunity for people to communicate to the Almighty Allah as much as possible without any barriers. It’s the month for Muslims to ask for forgiveness from their Creator. This is because during this holy month, devils is on the chain. Therefore, remember Allah as much as possible. Ask for forgiveness from Him as much as you can. Recite the holy Quran as much as possible.

2) Follow the Sunnah

There are many good practices that are not mandatory in Islam but when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to do them. Muslims fasting the  holy month of Ramadan should observe these as much as possible to multiply their rewards during this precious period.

3) Offer Zakat

Zakat is one of the pillars of Islam. It involves getting a percentage of your wealth and share with the needy. In fact, Zakat is a requirement for those who have. You need to pay Zakat to have your fasting accepted by the Almighty. To know the minimum amount of Zakat you ought to pay to purify your Ramadan, simply multiply your wealth by 2.5%. Zakat can be in any form such as money, food and others. And when offering food for Zakat, it’s required that you select from the food you use most often at your home.

4) Observe The Five Daily Prayers

Muslims are supposed to pray five times a day. We all know that. And you will be wasting your time to fast but fail to observe the five daily prayers. To purify your Ramadan and have Allah accept your fasting, observe this great pillar of Islam.

5) Observe Taraweeh

Taraweeh is a prolonged prayer normally performed daily after Isha throughout the month of Ramadan. It’s a Sunnah prayer aimed at creating a stronger bond between a Muslim and the Almighty Allah. Observing this prayer during the month of Ramadan helps you rip from the many rewards that await you from the Creator.

Don’ts During The Month Of Ramadhan

1) Don’t Fornicate

The act of playing sex between two people who are not legally married is called fornication. Like any other religions, Islam does not allow fornication. Fornicating during the month of Ramadan or while fasting is even more harmful to your relation with Allah than during the other ordinary days. Therefore, avoid it at all cost.

2) Don’t Do Adultery

Similar to fornication, adultery is where a married person engages in sex intercourse outside his/her official marriage. It’s also called extramarital sex. Islam discourages adultery. As a result avoid it as much possible. Not even breaking the fast – which we call iftar.

3) Don’t Lose Patience, Never Get Violent

There are times when we get angry at some people or about certain situations. But no matter the situation, avoid getting violent. Don’t fight, never beat up children or your spouse and avoid quarreling. Whether at home or in the community outside home, violence is against the teachings of Islam. Avoid them during the month of Ramadan .Control your hands, mouth and the tongue.

4) Don’t Gossip

Gossiping is real. People can gossip. It’s very common to bad mouth about other people’s problems and lives. And it’s not gender specific. Both men and women gossip. But this is one other act you have to be extra careful about especially during this holy month of Ramadan. Watch your mouth against gossiping and backbiting. There is actually no need for you to go hungry the whole day in the name of  fasting when you can’t refrain from gossiping and backbiting.

5) Don’t Waste Precious Time

Avoid wasting the precious Ramadan time into Worldly pleasures. Instead, dedicate this time to worshiping the Almighty Allah and asking for forgiveness together with the good deeds mentioned above. Use this valuable time to repent and pray to Allah in order to attain taqwa (closeness to Allah SWT). Remember, Ramadan comes once in a year and the rewards it this one month are far more than those you can gather during the remainder of the year. Therefore, don’t waste time. Make good use of it!

(Video) ‘Nagoro Doll Village’, A Mysterious Village Full With Dolls!

Published

on

Nagoro or now known as Nagoro Doll Village is a village in the Iya Valley on the island of Shikoku in Tokushima Prefecture, Japan. It is known for the large number of realistic dolls positioned throughout the village, which have made it a tourist attraction. The village is located on Route 439 in the Iya Valley, a remote mountainous area. It formerly had about 300 inhabitants, but the decline in Japan’s population has caused that to fall to 35 by January 2015, 30 as of August 2016, and also 27 by September 2019.

At first glance, most visitors to Nagoro Doll Village will see a sweet rural community of elderly residents spending their time blissfully tending to their gardens and fishing. When they decided to take a closer look, however, and they might be in for a scare. The villagers are actually dolls.

Nagoro is a slowly shrinking village located in the valleys of Shikoku, Japan. Populated by creepy dolls, it might make you question the reality. Its inhabitants left the village in a search of employment or died. More than 200 dolls inhabit the town. They’ve become loved by their human neighbors and are often celebrated by the community for bringing back fruitful memories of the past.

Eleven years ago, Tsukimi Ayano returned home to Nagoro. Faced with loneliness, she has populated the village with dolls, each representing a former resident. The dolls are all created single-handedly by Ayano Tsukimi. The local school is now filled with a few dozen dolls patiently waiting for class to begin. Made of straw, the bizarre dolls are dressed in old clothes.

Once working in the garden, Tsukimi made the first doll in the likeness of her father, and then she came up with the idea to replace the other family members with similar dolls. 10 years later, her work continues. Every doll is located in a place where she would resemble that person. So strolling along with the village you will find quite unique monuments either working in the field, fishing in the river, or simply sitting along the road and staring at you.
