I pray for the oppressed & #Flood -stricken people of #Iran, for our occupied homeland & for our country which is burning in the fire of repression, poverty & destruction.…
#Ramadan is the month of solidarity among people, so that people’s hearts could get closer during common rituals & they could love one another, & so that ill will, spite and discord promoted by the #Iran mullahs would no longer have any place among people.
In #Ramadan we remember the hungry and the poor, victims of floods & earthquake who have lost their homes under the mullahs’ rule, those who sell their kidneys out of extreme poverty, the workers & unemployed who cannot not afford to feed their children.

Today, Virginia showed up!

It can be hard to knock doors when you're fasting for #Ramadan - a dry fast with no water until sunset.

So our interfaith partners showed up to help. Along with the unstoppable Sen. @JenniferBoysko, we launched our interfaith canvass.
Then we dispersed through the district to knock doors 'till the sun went down!

Our interfaith partners drove fasting Muslim volunteers door to door to ease their burden. Along the way, many new friendships were born. These women are forces of nature!
They live, walk, and breathe the idea of showing up. This is an example of the kind of Virginia we can build.

Thanks to Marilyn, Suzanne, Sandy, Pat, Linda, Farhan, Zaid, Gulshan, Uzma, Isra, Aya, Mohammed, and of course my better half Rabiah and our son Issa for showing up!

Thread: Another overview amazing #Muslim *female* achievement.

Did you know the first university in the world was built by a Muslim woman approx 1200 years ago?

This is the story of Fatima Al-Fihiri (800–880 CE). #BadassWoman #twitterstorians

2. Daughter of a wealthy businessman, the family moved from Tunisia to Fez, Morocco during the rule of King Idriss II. When both her husband and father died, Fatima and her sister inherited a fortune.

They chose to spend their inheritance on building educational institutions.
3. In 859, Fatima built the Al-Qayrawan #Mosque, decorated in the Andalusian style with Kufic calligraphy (early style) engraved throughout. At 3,000 sq ft, it can fit 22,000 people.

She stacked it with Islamic works (Qur’ans, #Hadith collections, etc).

"..And whoever saves one, it is as if he had saved mankind entirely.."(Quran 5:32)
And without realizing the MCU manifested the most heroic act a Muslim could do, saving Tony Starks life that one day on May 2, 2008, Ho Yinsen indirectly ends up saving the whole universe in 2023.
Yinsen led by example of Islam in terms of seeing the best in people. He knew Starks military involvement in foreign soil was the whole reason that he was in a terrorist camp, also likely why he lost his whole family yet he still spoke to Tony with respect.
He spoke to the side of Tony that wanted good for humanity. He patiently educated him on the what/where his weapons have been going and used for. He looks over Tony's mistakes.

"Not even water?" - #Ramadan explained.

So it's that time of year when your Muslim friends/family/colleagues are observing #Ramadhan and you know it's to do with not eating but why? And seriously, not even water?!

"How is it pronounced?" 'Rah-muh-daan' #Ramadhan (spelt correct with or without the H as it's a transliteration of an Arabic word) is the 9th month in the Islamic calendar. It's a lunar calendar and months consist of either 29/30 days depending on the visibility of the new moon.
"Why does #Ramadhan always start on a different date every year?"
The Islamic calendar is not synchronised with the seasons because lunar calendars consist of 354/355 days compared to the Gregorian calendar which consists of 365 days so there is an annual drift of 10 days.

30 foundational Islamic principles reinforced in Ramadan:…

30) Killing a person unjustly is equivalent to killing all mankind. Life is a sacred blessing granted by the Creator, as such, no human-being is at liberty to unlawfully destroy it.
Thread 👇
29) With forbearance & patience wounded hearts are mended & all relationships are strengthened. Vengeance only perpetuates hate & bloodshed. So, forgive the one who transgresses against you; reach-out to the one who cuts you off; give to the one who deprives you…. #Ramadan
28) Speak good or maintain silence. The tongue is the primary vehicle through which ideas, affirmations, and objections of life are conveyed. No other organ in the human body is capable of building more relationships or destroying them more than the human tongue. #Ramadan

And for those of you who don't speak/read Arabic: the Islamic month of #Ramadan begins today or tomorrow, depending. This thread contains a quick Q&A of common questions:
Q: What is Ramadan?
A: It's the September of the Muslim calendar. More relevant: during this month, able Muslim are expected to fast from Fajr prayer (~sunrise) until Magreb (~sunset). Fast means abstaining from consumption, for example in food and drink, and temptation.
Q: How long is Ramadan?
Ramadan can be 29 or 30 days. The Muslim calendar is a lunar calendar, so the start and end of Ramadan are commonly decided by sightings of the crescent after the new moon, or in some countries, calculations of lunar phases.

I've come home at all kinds of late hours during this Ramadan to find my wife Priya sleeping. Sometimes I watch her in that deep sleep and whether she is on our couch or in our bed, any noise that I make doesn't seem to phase her. (Thread)
What always breaks it though is when she hears a sound from either our son or daughter and instinctively gets up to see if they are ok. Aside from realizing how blessed I am to be married to the woman that I am married to, it reminds me of a day from a few years ago.
Priya and I were in California with our daughter and on that day my understanding of God changed a lot after seeing my wife be a mother to our child.

#Feministas y activistas de los #DDHH:

#TommyRobinson es un activista inglés que ha sido detenido y condenado a 13 meses de prisión, por informar sobre las bandas de #pederastas #musulmanes, que han operado en Reino Unido durante décadas.
Es decir:

- Está a favor de los #derechos de las #mujeres y de las #niñas.
- Está en contra de la #violencia que se ejerce sobre ellas.
- Está en contra de la representación más extrema del #heteropatriarcado, es decir, la #Sharia

Aquí dejo un hilo para quienes no sepan sobre algunas aplicaciones prácticas de la #Sharia, es decir, de la ley musulmana:

While *most* South Asian Muslims use #Persian terms for religious concepts, Muslims in #TamilNadu & #Kerala (who trace their roots to Arab trading communities) have distinct traditions also reflected in their terminology, which freely draws from #Tamil/#Malayalam & #Sanskrit.
Instead of rozā, the #Persian term for Islamic fasting (itself a translation of #Arabic ṣawm) used in #Urdu, #Bengali, #Gujarati etc, #Tamil & #Malayalam speaking Muslims use nōmpu, lit. ceremonial fasting. The word is from a proto #Dravidian root meaning to do penance. #Ramadan
Sanskrit is used too. #Malayalam speaking Muslims commonly refer to #Ramzan as puṇya māsam, #Sanskrit for month of good merit. Nimskāram, the Malayalam counterpart of the #Persian namāz (Islamic prayer), is from #Sanskrit namaskāra (lit. prostratration, here, to a god). #Ramadan
