Eid Mbaarik.......divided or united?

Eid Mubarak to all Muslims. May Allah bless Muslims with forgiveness and happiness. Eid is meant to be showing the solidarity and unity among Muslims. But I wonder if we see it in that way. For every Muslim fasting is during the month of Ramadan and Eid at the end of Ramadan. However for some of the Muslims, today is Eid where as for the others tomorrow is Eid. Is this really the way it should be? will the Muslims always be celebrating our Eid on different days. Will we see a day Muslim Ummah celebrate Eids on a single day, showing ourselves as united rather than divided? Eid Mubarak once again.

My brand new experience...

Last night I had to travel to Sri Lanka for a medical treatment. Now this is just a simple thing right? But for me, this became a very different experience. I am talking about having to travel and stay in the airport during the month of fasting. Checking began at 16:30 so I was there at 17:00. The plane was scheduled to take off at 19:30. This means that when the sunsets at 18:02 we all will be inside the airport. So what do you expect? The break fast will be available or if not provided right.. Yea! That is what even I was expecting, been a Muslim and belonging to a so called 100% Muslim country. Yet, what I saw was very different. "There is no arrangement for it." They said. huh. But there is no arrangement to send us out of this jail too. So we went to the famous "departure restaurant." To my surprise the answer was even more wonderful. In one side we see the prayer call from TVM, and on the other side we were kindly informed that they will not take any orders ev

A boycott request...

Great news Hope you all know about the Denmark newspaper who made fun upon our loving Prophet and till now they never regret. let us make them regret for all time. The Denmark ambassador, prime minister and Denmark channel they all try to do something just to stop the boycott made by Muslims last month, by which their losses has reached to 2 billion Euro. If we continue to boycott Denmark products after 7 months it could reach around 40 billion Euro's destruction. Believers do not let this message stop in your PC.

Party System or Zaathee System??

Kon party eh? Kaakah vote dhenee? These are the questions that we hear everywhere in Maldives these days. The election time is getting nearer. This will be the first multiparty election this country will see. There are 10 political parties registered in Maldives so far.{1} There are six candidates representing six different political parties and two independent candidates. But my question is very short and simple. Are we ready for multiparty system? At least do we know what a multiparty system is? To tell you the truth I see something very different. If I am to name the political situation of our country right now, I’d call it a Zaathee System rather than a Party System.  There are reasons for me to say so:  1. The candidates are attacking the opponents in a very personnel manner. The funny part of it is that whenever they attack someone they give a super excuse. “I am not telling this because I have anything personnel with……. But because this is the truth.” Truth is no excuse fo

Development is what everyone looks forward to. It is the dream of every person, family, society and nation to develop in one way or the other. However, achieving development is easier to be said than done. Ramlhaan… time to eat and play Hey!!! Ramlhaan Mubarak to all of you . This is the month that brings the big change to our life. We feel hungry. We pray our prayers. There is no place left in the mosques. We play so many games. We sleep so late and get up so late. We make kadaas on our roads (kadaas I mean the small tables that are kept on the road and used to sell things, often by kids). We even have so many ramlhaan Ihthifaalhs. That’s not all. So many TV and radio programs like roadha kurukurun and the list can’t be finished even. This is how it is. Let’s turn it another way. Is this how it should be? I don’t think so. I think just like many things that have gone off the track, even our dealing with the ramzaan. Very often we are keen to label ourselves as the 100% Muslim country.
