Asalaam alaikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuh my Muslim brothers and sisters around the world. As we come upon the end of Ramadan and our holy fast I would like to give praise the brave brothers and sisters who take up the struggle around the world. RAMADAN MUBARAK EID al-FITR!! An accumulation of years being on the straight and narrow path (Salat and Transcendental Meditation TM) seeking wisdom and truth through positive thinking and positive actions.
The “Koran by Heart” an HBO Documentary aired on the first day of Ramadan and was a wonderful way to start the fast and holy month. According to HBO 2011, “In Egypt over 100 kids from 70 countries compete annually in the world’s oldest Holy Qu’ran memorization contest.” It’s amazing. I know 8 or 10 chapters from The Holy Qu’ran. The kids memorize the entire Holy Qu’ran between 5 and 10 years old Insha Allah. Amazing!
Unfortunately our brothers and sisters in Syria, Libya Egypt and other countries had to suffer through this 2011 Ramadan. May Allah bless their souls and continue to protect and provide sustenance for the survivors.
