Ramadan Mubarak

ramadan-praying.jpgAfter the usual Reut-e-Hilal Committee goof-up, Karachi now anxiously awaits to start the Holy Month of Ramadan from tomorrow the 25th of September.

On behalf of the entire Karachi Metroblog team may I wish all the Muslims around the world and Karachi a very blessed and peaceful month of Ramadan. Please remember us in your prayers and also pray solemnly for the continued progress of our country when wading through the rough waters of Globalisation. Ameen

    Ramadan mubarak to everyone :)


  2. striker (unregistered) on September 24th, 2006 @ 10:54 pm

    the worst thing is
    the fight over sighting the ramadan moon is not limited to pakistan.
    ISNA (islamic society of north america) and
    Sharia Board are also fighting over it
    sharia board announce ramadan on 24 of september and ISNA is doing it on 23 sep. now we are making progress on global level


  3. Destituterebel (unregistered) on September 24th, 2006 @ 10:56 pm

    A very happy ramadan to you all in Pakistan.


  4. Kashif (unregistered) on September 24th, 2006 @ 11:10 pm

    Ramadan Kareem. Please pray that Allah save us from tyrant rulers.


  5. Arsalaan Haleem (unregistered) on September 24th, 2006 @ 11:24 pm

    We should be praying that sanity prevails at KESC and we should be able to spend our Ramazan in peace and harmony.

    Ramazan Mubarak Everyone.

    Why there is a conflict for moon only in the month of ramadan?


  7. Da-Man (unregistered) on September 25th, 2006 @ 12:06 am

    ISNA is following the scientific calender and not relying on the actual sighting of the moon by half blind octogenarian beards. As usual, all mosques are not following ISNA, so the controversy continues, but at least ISNA has taken a bold step in the right direction.

    If the universe along with the moon and the sun are made by Allah, and their workings are directed by Allah, what is wrong with following them if we can calculate their positions with the knowledge that we have now which did not exist at the time of our prophet. Wasn’t he a progressive person always siding on the side of reason and knowledge instead of traditions? If he gave traditions priority over knowledge, then he would have accepted the traditions that existed during his times like burying baby girls.

    I guess ISNA is wrong. Astronormy has been the oldest subject and we had so many great astronomers in histrory that Islam could easily order to go per them.


  9. Nadir Nasir (unregistered) on September 25th, 2006 @ 12:32 am

    THIS is the wrong schedule… its starts on 23rd!!! saturday! what is that? How authentic is it? I just mailed it to all my friends, TM whats wrong!!??


  10. Teeth Maestro (unregistered) on September 25th, 2006 @ 12:50 am

    Dont worry, its fully authentic. Nothing wrong with it except that it shows to start from Sat, just ignore the dates and follow exactly through, its formualted for Karachi.

    The link I have initially inserted was far too confusing (Latitude/Longitude) so I just copied the table here. I’ll get down and dive into the HTML code to edit it, sorry for the confusion but its autentic.


  11. KhiTorPitt (unregistered) on September 25th, 2006 @ 3:37 am

    No matter who is doing what. As an individual we can be a good example.
    We can pray to God to show all of us the right path, we should be committed not to do anything wrong, atleast during this month of Ramadan what we can do is, we can say Salam to whoever comes in front of us even if we know him or not, we will not break any traffic signals, we will clean the side walk for any garbage or stone, we’ll polite to everybody.

    Thanks @teeth maestro, for posting the schedule this will help us to give a call to our family during sehri.

    TM: Why do you refer to the Reut-e-Hilal committee decision as a goof-up? The visibility of the moon in Karachi was less than 1% on the sunset of the day they gave their decision. That information was supported by SUPARCO, and further more, according to REHC was verified by taking to the skies and looking for the moon from up there. If supposedly the cloud cover was thick enough in he entire country (!) to not allow anyone to have a good look at the moon, I think it’s justified, especially since that 1% visibility is VERY small to begin with.

    So, if nobody saw it, other than the Peshawari REHC, which ALWAYS seems to see it (atleast for the last 2 decades) a day ahead of the rest of the country, I ask what’s the problem then? If you can’t see it, don’t fast. If you can, do so. End of story.
