When the #COVID_19 #pandemic forced mosques to close during #Ramadan last year, #Muslims could not break fast and pray together.

However, dates were a constant in every home.

latimes.com/california/sto…
After fasting from sunrise to sunset during Ramadan, Muslims turn first to the fruit, a practice believed followed by Muhammad.

On Twitter, some joke that it’s the only month of the year where they have a date every night.

latimes.com/california/sto…
For Ahmad Fejleh, who grew up in Syria, the fruit has been a fixture although his route to date farming was circuitous.

His connection to dates prompted a move to the Imperial Valley in 2007 to start AYA Farms, a now 75-acre date palm orchard.

I had asked @EthzemaLeader the following question after his controversial/deliberate remark against #IslamicBanking/#InterestFreeBanking (as it is called here in #Ethiopia). I have today watched another video of him where he tried to "Clarify" but continued to insult us more.
1/n
First of all, he has tried to defend that he is not an #islamophobe by bringing #Muslim audience & that his grandmother was a Muslim. This is the same reply many persons give when they are confronted with their #Islamophobic attitude. #BerhanuNega is no different.
#Ethiopia
2/n
You can have #Muslim parents, lived with #Muslims fasted #Ramadan, eaten #Dates or #Sambusa etc you can still be an #islamophobe. One can claim to be a Muslim but in reality be the most #Islamophobic person that hates #Muslims and #Islam. It is a lame excuse!

MY RAMADAN SHOUT OUT TO NEURO-ATYPICAL MUSLIMS :) <3

✓ Muslims with eating disorders that get triggered during #Ramadan, who feel obligated to explain why they’re not fasting to nosey aunties.
#Muslims on psych meds who can’t fast because without medication they can’t function, who feel uncomfortable explaining this to everyone who asks why they aren’t fasting.
✓ Muslims with #ADD who struggle to perform Salah, Taraweeh, read Qur'an, etc.
✓ Muslims with depression who sometimes find it hard to get out of bed and do the obligatory prayers or go to Masjid.

✓ Muslims with #Bipolar who find Islamic obligations easy on some days and impossible on others, who are seen as flaky or flip-floppy about faith.

#Pakistan bans an Islamist party behind violent anti-#France protests that crippled normal life in major cities this week. Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan #TLP demanded expulsion of #French ambassador. Bold and unexpected move by PM #ImranKhan government.

#TLPNationWideProtest
The story, first reported by @AzazSyed, represents a welcome departure for PM #ImranKhan's #Pakistan government. Blacklisting #TLP will also help improve his govt's ties with #France which deteriorated last year:

#Pakistan's welcome decision to blacklist #TLP after violent anti-#France riots should lead to some introspection among Pakistani politicians & the public (yet to happen), starting with: Why is it that Pakistan is the *only* Muslim nation seeing this type of violence?

Faces behind #Kashmir Intel #Thread

Let us know, what's the motive and who are/were some of the people running handles like Kashmir Intel (@Kashmirosint), which claim themselves to be voice or source of information of #Kashmir.
NIA in Sep 2020 filed a charge sheet against 5 operatives of #IslamicState Khorasan Province, including the #Kashmiri couple who were running Kashmir Intel for allegedly conspiring to utilize the anti #CAA protests to instigate #Muslims against #Indian government & provoke riots
Here is how the couple, Jahanzaib Sami Wani & Hina Bashir planned to exploit gullible Muslim youth
They were conspiring to create unrest during anti #CAA protest by coining seditious slogans & making graffiti at public places, highlighting the same on social & international media

I think #BrightWing shows the desperation of #PK. I think PK isn’t happy with a client who doesn’t listen to him. He is a marketer but has a rotten product at hand. He wanted to turn #MamataBanerjee to victim, Mamata decided to play Gangstah again.
So off goes the plaster and out comes the gloves as #MamataBanerjee urges the cadre to be aggressive and violent even against the Central Forces. The strategist seems to have been told to shut up and follow the election #WestBengal way. The goons, gangs and violence.
A strategist hanging out with so called neutral journalist so keen to ensure #MamataBanerjee wins #WestBengalPolls for more than an hour, on a day before polls. Is he hinting out that the candidate has slipped out of his hands when he hints attack on CAPF in Bengal?

The @talkRADIO, @dailystar & @Daily_Express reported a gay paramedic was refused entry to a mosque to treat a heart attack patient

Our investigation found this demonisation of mosques was made up

Basic checks would have prevented this dangerous lie being spread

More here👇🏽👇🏽
The caller "Tom" was given almost 17 mins of airtime by @cristo_radio to make allegations including how he was prevented from entering the #Mosque, was threatened with decapitation the streets of #Oldham and that he needed police back up on call-outs to certain addresses
The presenter further curated the call in a direction where the caller was allowed to say parts of Greater Manchester had areas he wouldn't go into and all of the areas had the common feature of being "highly populated by #Muslims ." Where have we heard this before?

What is interesting is that the leftist journalists stand outside ramshackle houses, watching impoverished bodies, poverty written all over, and then they shove mike in the mouth of scared people and ask- Do you think @MamataOfficial has done development here? #Nandigram
Here are some details from Haldia Development Authority report (2018). "Most of the household level potable water supply in Nandigram I & II Blocks is
through tubewell. Presence of iron is often reported in many locations" - Is there #Hindu polarisation if you oppose TMC?
#Sanitisation Villages with lower level of
access to safe sanitation facilities and drainage are on high risk to contaminate the surface
water sources. - Reporter- You want to vote for @BJP4India due to polarisation? #WestBengalPolls

اس ھفتے کا میرا مضمون جس میں میں نے @DaakVaak کی ایک سوشل میڈیا پوسٹ کا تجزیہ کیا ہے اور اس بات پر غور کیا ہے کہ آج کل کچھ نوجوان مسلمان اتنی جلد اہانت کے الزامات لگا کر لعن تعن کیوں شروع کر دیتے ہیں!

#Buraaq #Islam #Muslims
The @DaakVaak page posted this image of Buraaq, the mythical winged creature in which the Prophet is said to have ascended to the heavens. They mentioned that paintings of Buraq have existed for centuries in various cultures. Some Muslims jumped at the admins...
... asking them to take down the image. Some said it was blasphemous, others called for a boycott of @DaakVaak and yet others, using obscene language to defend their ‘islamic ethics’ wanted the page to be banned! Needless to say the page showcases art, literature and culture...

The main conspirator of #DelhiRiots2020 #YatiNarsinghanandSaraswati is still not arrested by @DelhiPolice.
While #AntiCAA protesters are jailed labelling them as #Rioters.
Watch videos in this thread to know how riots were deliberately planned & executed by #RightWingHindu to
stop anti #CAA protests in #ShaheenBagh & other places.
Also one can clearly see how #DelhiPolice & @BJP4India leadership protecting them by deliberate inaction. @hrw @amnesty @AIIndia @UNHumanRights @UN_HRC @USCIRF @humanrights1st @HumanRightsCtte @EURightsAgency @HarvardLawHRP
Interesting fact is instigators are upper caste #Hindus while perpetrators are lower caste hindus mostly from #OBC (Other Backward Castes). They are being used as weapon against #Muslims, #Dalits, #Sikh, #Christian minorities of #India to gain power by @RSSorg by polarization

THREAD 22 of writing against the 🪖-coup. It might be on emotional shock and feeling numb. It might be on the suffering of others. It might be on a new advocacy group - or on all of the above. #March4Coup #CivilDisobedienceMovementMyanmar #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar Artist: Kuekool
1. This post by #Rohingya #activist @Ali_Jinnah_222 captures two things I want to write about today: being at a loss of words in regard to one’s own feelings - and being in #solidarity with the suffering of others. #March4Coup #CivilDisobedienceMovement

While many heroes of the #Holocaust have been immortalized in movies and books, a handful of courageous #Muslims who saved the lives of hundreds of #Jews are less frequently remembered. As #HolocaustRemembranceDay nears let’s remember those heroes.

Selahattin Ülkümen, Turkish consul in Rhodes, Greece in July 1944 when Germans began deporting 1,700 Jews, incl Turkish citizens. Ülkümen stood up to the Gestapo, stating: "Under Turkish law all citizens were equal. We didn't differentiate btw citizens” and saved dozens of lives.
Behiç Erkin was Turkey’s Ambassador to #France under the #German occupation. Erkin used his position to issue Turkish passports to any #Jews who could indicate even the weakest Turkish connection, later arranging their evacuation to Turkey and saving them from #Nazi persecution.

1) Let’s talk about #Nakhichevan - a lost homeland. ImageImageImageImage
2) The the name "Nakhichevan" in #Armenian literally means "the place of first descent", a Biblical reference to the descent of Noah's Ark on the adjacent Mount #Ararat. Armenian tradition says that Nakhichevan was founded by Noah. Image

A review of #Islamophobia in 2020:

The #COVID19 pandemic exacerbated Islamophobia around the globe. From #India to the U.K., #Muslims were accused of spreading the virus & evading lockdown orders.
For #Muslims, the environment meant not only being disproportionately impacted by a deadly virus but also facing targeted discrimination from those in power:

foreignpolicy.com/2020/03/28/ind…
Islamophobia in #India in 2020:
Politicians & right-wing media continued to promote anti-Muslim rhetoric & tropes, while Indian Muslims & rights activists protested against discriminatory legislation (#CAA), which rendered Indian Muslims 2nd-class citizens.

Sadly,in todays age many have spread lies abt the character of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad AS.Below r statements of Non-Ahmadi scholars shows how truthful #PromisedMessiah was&how he emerged as a defender of islam duringhis lifetime #MessiahHasCome
(It’s going to be a long thread) Image
It’s clear, before the claims of the Prophets,even their enemies testify to their pure character.But after their claims,people begin to raise allegations against their character as they have nothing else to raise.Those same people who praised the Prophet Muhammad SAW rejected him ImageImage
But in keeping with prophecies,it was inescapable that I too should be denied.Therefore,those whose hearts are in veils dont accept me.I know well tht God will surely support me as He’s always supported His Messengers.None can ever succeed against me(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad AS) Image

Contributed to @Guardian Podcast 'Today In Focus': The murder of schoolteacher Samuel #Paty who had shown his class #cartoons of the prophet #Muhammad has rekindled a debate in #France over #secularism & the state’s role in regulating #FreeSpeech. (21'-29')
I emphasise that we can discuss the general problem of hateful #cartoons about the Prophet #Muhammad & his Muslim followers that spread collective guilt & humiliate often underprivileged #minority communities beyond acts of barbaric #terrorism. #Racism #Islamophobia #CharlieHebdo
I think that @EmmanuelMacron acted in a manner that was rash & unstatesmanlike following the vile murder of Samuel #Paty. He has effectively incorporated #cartoons mocking #Islam into its domestic policies. He defended them as part of French culture & #France’s global image.

Story of #Indonesia that #Twitter does not want you to know:

Until the 16th century, Indonesia was 100% #Hindu-#Buddhist(except the negligible elite of Kedah sultanate).

Today, Hindus and Buddhists are not even 1% and #Muslims are 88%. What led to such a drastic change?
(1/7)
Expect for a handful of people on #Bali Island, #Hinduism in Indonesia is extinct.

The #Mosque shown in (1/7) is known as Meenara Kudus mosque. Built-in 1549, it is the oldest lasting mosque of #Indonesia. It is a Dargah of a Sufi wali-Sanga (saint) known as Sunan kudus.
(2/7)
The Dargah tells us a lot about how Sufi #Islam spread in #Indonesia. It is built by demolishing a #HinduTemple. The temple ruins can still be seen.

There is an interesting story. When #temples were destroyed to make way for mosques, #Hindus did not enter the mosques.

Spoke to @Guardian podcast about growing up in post-War #France... that is post-#Algerian War of Independence, still v. much in living memory. The War’s legacy is perceived in all kinds of aspects of modern life, still blighted by the #colonial experience.
A point that is easily overlooked by foreign observers is that the 2nd most influential party in #France now was founded by far-right nationalists who wanted to keep #Algeria French. #LePen's FN -now called the Rassemblement National -is openly racist, islamophobic & antiSemitic.
In his '#Separatism' speech @EmmanuelMacron was sugar-coating #reactionary policies based on the premise that 5-6M French #Muslims can’t be trusted to manage their own affairs & required surveillance at all times.The emphasis was that Islam is a chronic #problem around the world

My article published by @Tabletmag. I talk about how #Jews and #Muslims in #Azerbaijan have always stood together, through thick and thin, including during the #MarchGenocide of 1918 and two #Karabakh wars tabletmag.com/sections/news/…
On Nov. 10, the 44-day war between #Azerbaijan and #Armenia came to an end, as Armenia agreed to a ceasefire and to withdraw from occupied territories. For the past 30 years, Armenia had occupied 20% of Azerbaijan’s sovereign territory, forcibly displacing 800,000 #Azerbaijanis.
#Shusha is where one of our most decorated and beloved war heroes, #AlbertAgarunov, fought bravely and lost his life to an #Armenian sniper in 1992. His story is both the story of an #Azerbaijani #Jewish war hero and also the story of #Muslim-#Jewish #coexistence and friendship

🔶Muhammad Ali Jinnah conceived #Pakistan as an Ideal #Democratic State & stated that constitution of #Pakistan should embody essential principles of #Islam,because religion’s idealism preaches #democracy , #EqualityForAll , #justice #fairplay for All.
🔶However, harsh realities of ‘Idea of Pakistan : An Ideal #MuslimState’, contrary to ideals of Md Ali #Jinnah, have emerged to make it a State which, in words of Hussain Haqqani, “is a volatile, semi-authoritarian, national security state, which failed to run itself .
🔶Consistently & Under Constitutional order or rule of law”. #Pakistan has become a greedy state, unsatisfied with the status quo, with the very intentions of incapable #leaders & with intent of #crorecommanders , #Pizzagenerals , #Twittergenerals

My piece on the despicable propaganda advanced by @EmmanuelMacron when,in a letter published in a British outlet,he used #eugenics parlance to describe underfunded suburbs full of #Muslims as “breeding grounds for terrorists in #France”. #Islamophobia @FT

Delivering lines straight out of a Trump #fakenews generator,@EmmanuelMacron claimed,w/out any evidence whatsoever,that there are “districts where small girls aged 3or4 are wearing a #fullveil,separated from boys [..] & the rest of society,raised in hatred of France’s values”.@FT
Never mind that forcing someone to wear a #burqa is an imprisonable crime in #France,as is child abuse & radicalising minors.Bizarrely,in an era when cameras are everywhere,there were no images to back up @EmmanuelMacron's words abt these infant sociopaths.0 prosecutions too. @FT
