[THREAD] 1/ In 2022, the Islamic State claimed 2,028 attacks in 24 countries. It carried out large-scale operations in Syria, Nigeria and Afghanistan. Sharp decline in #IS operations in Iraq. Africa was the continent most afflicted, with a sharp increase in attacks at Christians.
2/ Detail about the methodology: I have analysed all the information provided by the Islamic State in the 52 issues of its weekly magazine al-Naba’ (cf. the front page of the issue 369). For every single IS claimed attack, I have analysed the target(s)/weapon(s) used/geolocation.
3/To start with, interestingly, the number of Islamic State’s attacks has dropped consistently since the fall of Baghûz (March 2019), last #IS stronghold in Syria. This is particularly striking in the case of #Syria and #Iraq, where the group is a mere shadow of what it once was.

Malgré les menaces , #ChristophLuxenberg poursuit ses recherches et sa lecture #syroAraméenne du Coran pr clarifier les #versets ambigus .Son hypothèse de travail : le #Coran a été initialement écrit en #alphabet #syriaque 👉 ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
2- Le #Coran contient des récits de l’Ancien et Nouveau #Testament, et de la littérature #hébraïque et #chrétienne . Selon #Luxenberg , son but serait d’#évangéliser les #Arabes. Mais, selon 1 tendance #chrétienne qui rejette la #divinité de #Jésus
3- Par la suite, le #Coran en #syriaque est retranscrit en alphabet #arabe qui s’est développé à partir de l’alphabet #syriaque lui-même. Des erreurs ont été commises lors de cette retranscription

Ibn al-Haytham, le savant des yeux

⬇️ Image
« (...) Après des années de lectures et de voyages (jusqu’en al-Andalus), et un emploi de copieur de manuscrits mathématiques, Ibn al-Haytham se décide enfin à publier le sien : le Kitāb al-Manāẓir (Traité sur l’optique). Son livre est alors une révolution.

Contenant les premières explications et descriptions dans le domaine de la psychologie de la perception visuelle (posant de nouvelles bases en matière de perspectives dans l’art !) et des illusions d’optique, l’ouvrage expose également une réfutation d’Ibn al-Haytham..

Abū Huraira, le second du Prophète ﷺ

« (...) Présent à chacun des prêches du Prophète ﷺ et à toutes les prières collectives, il n’échappe à aucun dire du Messager ﷺ dans sa mosquée, et il occupe son temps à les mémoriser et à les transmettre aux intéressés. Au contraire du reste des compagnons du Prophète ﷺ..

...Abū Huraira n’a ni femme ni enfants, n’a aucun emploi, n’occupe aucune charge politique, il n’a ni commerce ni troupeau ou terrain à garder. Un récit, très fameux, fait d’ailleurs état d’une invocation faite par le Prophète ﷺ visant à aider Abū Huraira...

Tidak ada yang meragukan bahwa Nabi Saw menggunakan rukyat dalam penentuan awal bulan kamariah. Bahkan pandangan para ulama mazhab telah sepakat menyatakan bahwa salah satu syarat masuknya bulan Ramadan adalah melihat hilal. Lantas mengapa Muhammadiyah malah menggunakan hisab?
1. Semangat Al Quran adalah penggunaan hisab
Dalam al-Quran terdapat dua ayat yang mengandung isyarat yang jelas kepada hisab, QS. Ar-Rahman: 5. Dan dalam QS. Yunus: 5 menyebutkan bahwa menghitung gerak matahari & bulan berguna untuk mengetahui bilangan tahun & perhitungan waktu.
2. Hadis-hadis yang memerintahkan rukyat adalah perintah berillat
Menurut Rasyid Ridha dan Musthafa az-Zarqa, perintah rukyat dalam beberapa hadis Nabi Saw merupakan perintah yang mengandung illat atau memiliki alasan hukum.…

1. Know that it's Not Too Late!

Firstly, if you feel you haven't made the most of Ramadan so far, don't worry, Ramadan is not yet over. Keep going and you never know which sincere deed Allah will accept and which deed could become a means of your forgiveness.

Whenever i see the sunrise or the sunset, it reminds me of a beautiful hadith that always leaves me awe struck. There’s a verse in Surah Yaseen that says,

“And the sun goes towards its resting place.”

Some sahabah’s رضي الله عنهم asked the Prophet ﷺ about what this verse meant, to which he replied that when the sun sets, it goes beneath the ‘Arsh of Allah and does sajdah. It stays there till Allah grants it permission to rise again. So it rises in the morning & in the evening
the sun comes back to do sujood again beneath the ‘Arsh of Allah. It will continue to do this until a time will come where it will ask for permission to rise, but Allah will order it to go back to where it came from. So it will rise from the west and this is when the doors of

#Ramadan 20

Ini adalah doa yang sering kita baca ketika bulan Ramadan dan semakin diperbanyakkan ketika sampai ke penghujungnya.

Doa ini ialah wasiat Nabi Muhammad SAW kepada Aishah r.a. andai beliau bertemu dengan Lailatul Qadar. HR Ibn Majah 3805.

Doa yang sangat indah.
Antara keindahan doa ini:

1/ Disebutkan secara khusus nama Allah SWT العفو (Yang Maha Pengampun) dalam doa ini merupakan isyarat bahawa Lailatul Qadar ialah malam yang akan diampunkan segala dosa-dosa.
2/ Pada doa ini juga terkandung pengiktirafan diri hamba yang lemah yang telah melakukan dosa kepada Tuhan yang maha agung.

Dengan mengakui kesilapan dan kekurangan ini menjadikan hamba itu merendah diri memohon keampunan dari Allah SWT.

20th of Ramaḍān

The conquest of Makkah: A thread
Before the Conquest:

The Treaty of Ḥudaybiyyah was written. It was a peace agreement between the Muslims in Madīnah and the Quraysh in Makkah.

The treaty would provide peace between each other for a period of 10 years.
The treaty allowed other tribes of Arabia to choose to be allies with either the Quraysh or the Muslims.

This meant that if there were any attacks or fighting, the allies would have the right to help and fight for the group they gave their support to.

It's the month of #Ramadan and most of the Muslim community is observing a strict dawn-to-dusk fast in a disciplined manner.

After breaking the fast, people indulge in Iftar.

Here's what you can try if you are hosting an #IftaarParty at your house.…
1. Bhajiya

It's the most basic yet mouth-watering dish one can make for an #IftarParty.

All you need to do is cut your favourite veggies into different shapes, dip them in the gram flour batter and deep fry them in oil.
2. Chana masala

Black chickpeas is one of the healthiest foods that one can have after breaking the Roza.

It's loaded with protein & fibre.

Have this Chana Masala, which is made by sauteing boiled black chickpeas in a little oil and some spices.

Suivre le Prophète Muḥammad ﷺ ?

« (...) Considéré comme le mo­dèle à suivre dans tout et pour tout, le Prophète Muḥammad ﷺ est ainsi mimé par les musulmans dans le but de se conformer au mieux au Qurʾān. L’une des « mères des croyants », ʿĀʾi­sha, disait en effet de son époux ﷺ...

...qu’il était tel « un Qurʾān qui marche sur la terre », et l’on sait que ses compagnons les plus proches l’observaient dans les moindres détails afin de mieux marcher dans les pas de celui qu’ALlāh a considéré comme la meilleure de Ses créatures.

What our INDIAN MUSLIMS 🇮🇳 must do:
This is the holy month of #Ramadan &
1. Every single MUSLIM leader, scholar, entrepreneur, influencer must now PUBLICLY, very vocally denounce these #Communal riots taking place during our Hindu Festivals. Muslims must say NOT IN MY NAME! N
2. Any joker who stereotypes MUSLIMS by coming on debates with a cap & beard and speaks like a FANATIC & tries to polarize society must be publicly denounced. These jokers have an agenda and they DO NOT REPRESENT MUSLIMS! Tv channels must be told NOT to call them! N
3. Take to the streets during HINDU FESTIVALS with Hindu Brothers & sisters. Celebrate with them.. invite them to celebrate with you! Do not let those who want to demonize Muslims & create a divide win. This is your country. Be pro-active & defeat the fanatics on both sides!
