New Year Celebration

Happy New Year
Photo credit :
In Islam, there are only two holidays, namely the day of 'Eid ul-Fitr and' Eid al-Adha. The rest, nothing so as a Muslim, there is no interest whatsoever to celebrate the new year.

The most important thing for a Muslim is to pay attention to the time that never cease to be filled with deeds, including in the new year 2012. The whole man is in loss except for the faithful and do good works, encourage one another in righteousness and admonish one another in patience.

Quran Sura Al-Asr
Quran Sura Al-Asr
Quran Sura Al-Asr

By time, Indeed, mankind is in loss, Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience. (Quran Sura Al-Ashr)

In this sura, Allah explains that all human beings really are at a losses. These losses referred to in this ayat may be absolute, meaning a loss in the world and the Hereafter, not getting pleasure and is entitled to put in hell. It may be that he only suffered losses from one side only. Therefore, in this letter God generalize that the losses would be experienced by human beings except those who have four criterias in the sura.

So there is no relationship at all between the new year with the obligation to worship. Every Muslim should worship any time and anywhere because God has created man to worship and be a caliph in the earth

Sura Adz-Dzariat 56

And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.(Quran Sura Adz-Dzariat : 56)

Index Al-Quran

The words of the Qur’an are primarily divided by chapter (surah) and verse (ayat). The chapters vary in length, and generally are ordered from longest to shortest.

To ease the reading process, the Qur’an is additionally divided into 30 equal sections, called a juz' (plural: ajiza). The divisions of juz' do not fall evenly along chapter lines, and often break from one section to another in the middle of a chapter. These divisions are done to make it easier for one to pace the reading over a month’s period, reading a fairly equal amount each day. This is particularly important during the month of Ramadan, when it is recommended to complete at least one full reading of the Qur’an from cover to cover.

Below is a listing of the 30 Ajiza of the Qur’an, with links to further information about the chapters, verses, and themes of each section of the Holy Book. (

Functions of The Mountains


The holy Qur'an directs our attention to the important geological function of mountains.

Ayat Quran

And We have placed on the earth firm mountains, lest it should shake with them, and We placed therein broad highways for them to pass through, that they may be guided (Quran Sura Al-Anbiya : 31)

As can be seen, it is stated in the verse that mountains work to prevent turbulence in the Earth's surface.

This fact was not known by anyone at the time when the Qur'an was revealed. In fact, they have recently been revealed as a result of discoveries of modern geology.

According to this invention, the mountains appear as a result of the movement and collisions of massive plates forming the earth's crust. When two plates collide, the stronger plates slipped under the other plate, while the one above the fold and form a plateau and mountains. Bottom layer moves under the surface and form a deep extension downward. This means that the mountain has a part that stuck far down that is not less magnitude to that seen in the earth's surface.

In scientific literature, the structure of the mountain is described as follows:

In the thicker parts of the continent, as in mountain ranges, the crust will sink deeper into the layer of magma. (General Science, Carolyn Sheets, Robert Gardner, Samuel F. Howe; Allyn and Bacon Inc.. Newton, Massachusetts, 1985, s. 305)

In a verse, the role of the mountain like this is expressed through a parable as "pegs":

Sura Alquran
 Sura Alquran
"Have We not made ​​the earth as a bed?, And the mountains as pegs?" (Qur'an sura An-Naba :6-7)

In other words, the mountains hold the plates of the earth's crust extending up and down the earth's surface at points meeting these plates. In this way, they pegged the earth's crust and prevent it from oscillating on a layer of magma or between slab-dial. In short, we can equate the mountain with a nail that makes sheets of wood fixed together.

Erection of the mountain function is described in scientific literature by the term "isostasi". Isostasi meaningful as follows:

Isostasi: equilibrium in the crust is maintained by the flow of rock material beneath the surface pressure due to gravity. (Webster's New Twentieth Century Dictionary, 2. Edition "isostasy", New York, s. 975)

An important role of the mountain which was discovered by modern geology and earthquake research, has been revealed in the Qur'an centuries ago as a proof of wisdom in the creation of God Almighty.

Sura An-Nahl
And He has affixed into the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you; and rivers and roads, that you may guide yourselves (Alquran Sura An-Nanl:15)

Ayat Quran
And We have placed on the earth firm mountains, lest it should shake with them, and We placed therein broad highways for them to pass through, that they may be guided (Quran Sura Al-Anbiya : 31)

Divorce in Islam

Husband and Wife in Islam
Photo credit
Divorce in Islam known as "talaq," which means "I divorce you", if a wife asks "talaq" to her husband then the term could be interpreted as "please divorce me!". Many non Muslims view that a Muslim man (who is married) can dissolve the marriage at any time by telling his wife: "talaq, talaq, talaq 'on his own. And even that is not easy and simple in Islam because there are several processes that must be done as a form of responsibility of both parties according to the rules of Islamic law.

Divorce in Islam is legitimate even though God hates it. If there has been a divorce between a pairs of households (same partner) three times ("talaq" and "ruju") then there is no "ruju" (re-united) until one of them has remarried. If a husband says 'talaq' three times, the law remains the one time and they can do a "ruju" (unified return) until the limit of three times the divorce with the same partner.

"Talaq" a husband in Islam is not legally valid if the husband said when drunk or under emotional and angry. Divorce will only be considered valid and correct if in accordance with the rules of Islamic law and not according to their own passions and desires.

Definition of Divorce in Islam
In Islam, the Prophet Muhammad once said, "Actions kosher but most accursed of Allah is divorce." When the marriage is to make each person or married couples who feel a spiritual and physical torment caused by a common bond, it is permissible for them to do the farewell the household. Literally, the definition of divorce is the dissolution of the marriage bond in religion and law.

But in Islam, the meaning of marriage is not as easy divorce. Many of the stages that must be passed when the divorce is really done. In Al-Quran sura Ath-thalaq, which is used as the Marriage Law. That divorce will only occur when there is a witness and go through three stages, namely a divorce, two divorces, and then divorce 3.

If a husband is furious with his wife so that ejected the word divorce, then it will not divorce occurred when there were no witnesses among them at the time spoken word. And that's not true when a husband in an unconscious condition, such as very angry and dark eyes were so outside the said divorce healthy mind and intention, it is considered will not divorce.

People's lives today are more modern and forward has eroded the sanctity of marriage. Divorce or separate beds so very apt to occur between pairs of households. There was no significant effort to continue to maintain Mahligai households that have been built. Need advice is perfect. Egocentric surrounding modern individuals have made the religious value no longer exceeds the value of worldly.

So, divorce can only occur when we want it to happen. So for you who always want to maintain your household. Never occurred to or intend to divorce yourself with your domestic partner. Remember! Each problem must have a way out of each.
