Ramadan-in the land of Midnight sun

Post by abdalazizariff »

8:22 The worst of created beings in the Sight of God are the deaf and the dumb, those who do not use their intellect. [2:18, 16:76]

22:41 They are the ones who, if We grant them rule in the land, establish Salaat and give Zakaat. They enjoin virtue and forbid vice. And in their governance all affairs are decided according to God's decrees. [Establishing Salaat = Establishing the Divine System where God's Commands are closely followed. Giving Zakaat = Setting up the Just Economic Order in which wealth circulates freely to nourish every member of the society, and the basic needs of all individuals are taken care of]

Peace and greetings my Northern friends.

[ my 2 cents rant]

A lot of us live in countries where we have not been granted rule. So if we following the traditional salat and zakat are we violating ?

So the sun does not set for months, so how you break fast-what you do -call instant fatwa brigade! [very tricky.]
LOL: No sun set, you can not go near your wife ! big problem.

22:41 given rule in the land , you have to protect it from enemies.So you can establish Salaat and give Zakaat , which is totally different than the traditional salat and zakaat. Military training, get up in the morning have some food go out for training come back at late evening, break the fast. [ now you can go near your wife] , exception for travelers and sick. But you have to make up. This training is for number of days not months.

[ in modern world military training has taken a different structure, which is good. In Pakistan, Kakul academy and regular exercise- to me it meets the Quranic Demands-enemies have to think twice ]

Here is my bottom line: All religions and their rituals are based on the local geography, customs, and traditions. They are not applicable to everyone across the planet. Please correct me if I wrong. Maybe I have missed the point.
