Imam Khamenei to attend Quranic session on 1st day of Ramadan

 

A Qur'an recitation session will be held in presence of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on the first day of the holy month of Ramadan. 

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): A Qur'an recitation session will be held in presence of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on the first day of the holy month of Ramadan. 

A large number of members of Iran’s Quranic community, including Qur'an masters, Qaris, memorizers, eulogists and others, will attend the Quranic event at the Imam Khomeini (رضي الله عنه) Hosseiniya (religious center) in Tehran. 

Several top Qaris, including Iran’s representative in this year’s international Qur'an competition of Malaysia, will recite verses from the Holy Qur'an during the program. 

It will be broadcast live on the Qur'an TV and the Qur'an Radio. 

The Leader will address the gathering and the program will conclude with congregational prayers led by Ayatollah Khamenei and Iftar (fast breaking). 

Such a gathering is held every year on the first day of the holy month in presence of the Leader.

I highly doubt they will.

What happens to everyone thinking Ramadhan is on Tuesday? Essentially, the majority of the Muslim world and maybe a large minority and or 50% of Shias (following Sayed Khomeini, Khamamnei, Khoi) will be doing it on Monday, whilst followers of Sayed Sistani think it is on Tuesday.

In spite of astronomical data suggesting possibility of sighting the new crescent on this night of Sunday 5th May 2019, there have been no verified sighting of the moon in the horizon near the United Kingdom.

Based on this, Monday 6th May 2019 is the 30th Shaban and Tuesday 7th May 2019 is the first of Ramadan in the United Kingdom for the followers of Ayatollah Khameini, Ayatollah Sistani Ayatollah Khoei and Imam Khomeini.

Again, if all European Shias take their fatawa from the United Kingdom or Hamburg or Sweden, it may not be relevant for French, Italians or Austrians. 

Chart below shows the moon was sighteable with optical aid in nearby regions, e.g. France, Southern Germany, even Ireland.

I’m wondering the same thing! I follow Sistani and didn’t fast today Monday, May 6. So now I’m wondering if that was a mistake. Can someone please advise? Tia

If you didn't know, you just make up the missed fast at a later date, no big deal. Ramadan mubarak.

Imam Khamenei:

World's plight due to ignoring Qur'an's advice to distrust oppressors

http://en.abna24.com/news//worlds-plight-due-to-ignoring-qurans-advice-to-distrust-oppressors_939940.html

World's plight due to ignoring Quran's advice to distrust oppressors

 

On the eve of the beginning of the Month of Ramadan, a ceremony of establishing bonds with the Holy Qur'an was held this afternoon May 6, 2019, at the Hussayniyah of Imam Khomeini ((رضي الله عنه).) with the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei, in attendance. 

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): 

In this meeting, Ayatollah Khamenei praised the Holy Qur'an as a divine masterpiece that attracts the hearts and asserted: The Qur'an is a matchless artistic work. The first factor in attracting the hearts to Islam like a strong magnet was the artistic dimension of the Qur'an. 

The Supreme Leader regarded recitation ceremonies as occasions to celebrate the artistic aspect of the Qur'an and held: This artistic masterpiece should be performed artistically. When you have an audience and you recite the Qur'an in a ceremonial manner, you should impress the audience. Here the artistic aspects should play a role. The audience can be impressed by the art. This is what is meant by the recitations we listen to, praise and approve of. Of course on the condition that this artistic recitation is done in a correct way. 

Ayatollah Khamenei advised reciters to recite the Qur'an in a way that emphasized the meanings of the divine Script, maintaining that: I have repeatedly advised our friends to recite the Qur'an in a way that emphasized the meaning to the audience. For instance, Sheikh Abdul Fattah Shashaey and Mustafa Ismail put proper emphasis on the sentences and words. Some reciters understand what they are doing and they recite in a way as if you are being addressed by the word of God. 

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution advised the audience against heedless ways of applauding the reciters and held: Regarding Quranic gatherings where you applaud the reciters by saying “Allah- Allah”, [I would like to mention that] there are people who do that copying the Arabic Quranic recitations ceremonies they have only listened to. Some people merely try to imitate that. It is good to applaud them, however, I have seen that sometimes when there are foreign reciters here reciting the Qur'an, the audience siting here feel that they have to applaud them loudly after each verse recited. This makes the reciter realize that you have not properly understood his recitation! Because he does not recite well and you do not notice that. 

Ayatollah Khamenei went on to say: Of course, I am not against you applauding Iranian reciters, there is nothing wrong with that. But when there is a foreign reciter, do not feel that you have to applaud them by saying “Allah-Allah” after each and every verse they recite. 

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution reminded his audience of the Quranic advise to distrust the oppressors and stressed: Ignoring the Quranic advise not to trust the oppressors is predicament of the people of the world today. They trust the tyrants and they become miserable. We have witnessed that there was some sort of awakening, some sort of enthusiasm among Islamic countries but like a burning flame that is put out by pouring ashes over it, it was extinguished. Because they relied on the U.S. and the Zionist regime. They did not realize what they had to do. 

Ayatollah Khamenei further added: If God the Exalted assist a nation and that nation fails to appreciate that divine assistance, they will be knocked down and slapped across the face. 

The Supreme Leader praised the memory of Imam Khomeini for his leadership in acting upon the Qur'an and said: Our nation appreciated that and since day one of the great movement by our nation, the persistence of the revolution, the resistance of the nation and the extraordinary progress of the country have owed it to acting upon the Qur'an thanks to the leadership of Imam Khomeini. 

Finally His Eminence added: Imam Khomeini taught us how to act and we took action. Today the path is the same and there is no option but to resist the devils and the unbelievers.

Ayatollah Hakim called for holding short-term religious courses in Ramadan

 

A source of emulation, based in Najaf Ashraf, addressing the missionary, called for holding the short-term religious course in Ramadan month. 

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): 

Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Saeed Hakim, based in Najaf Ashraf, through a message to the second annual conference of the Iraqi missionary and [Friday] prayer leaders, held in Kufa University, stressing the use of the potentials of Ramadan moth, said, “missionaries should hold short-term religious courses during the month of Ramadan in order to reinforce the belief and number of the faithful”. 

Hujjat al-Islam Sheikh Sala al-Halafi, reading the message of Ayatollah Hakim, stated, “Muslims should bolster their spiritual, behavioural and social dimensions through distance from the wrong, proper interaction with family members and the society”. 

It should be mentioned that the custodians of the holy shrines and Iraqi officials attended the said conference and presented their views on the need for seminaries in the period of propagation”. 

 

Ayatollah Sobhani:

Orders of Qur'an commensurate with all civilizations

Orders of Quran commensurate with all civilizations

 

Ayatollah Sobhani pointed to the miracles of Qur'an and stressed that the individual and societal rules of Qur'an are strong, stable and commensurate with all cultures, as they form the basis of man’s essence (Fitrah). 

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): Ayatollah Sobhani pointed to the miracles of Qur'an and stressed that the individual and societal rules of Qur'an are strong, stable and commensurate with all cultures, as they form the basis of man’s essence (Fitrah). 

Ayatollah Jafar Sobhani, a source of emulation, commended the closing of the Quranic competitions of Mahamatan, held specifically for cultural and arts centers of the mosques. 

His message reads as below: 

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful 

Qur'an is a sun that never sets. 

Prophets were appointed to direct and guide people. Each Prophet, due the requirements of his time, has its own set of miracles. And Qur'an, due to its specific form, structure and language is the main miracle of the Prophet of Islam. 

The holy book of the Prophet of Islam has some benefits and advantages, including: 

It includes knowledge and principles, from which Muslims extract all their intellectual knowledge. 

Qur'an is the book of instructions, and our Fiqh (Jurisprudence) is based on Quranic rules in all its individual and societal dimensions”. 

Qur'an is the judge over the causes of disputes among the people living prior to the advent of Islam. 

Qur'an is the book reporting a series of heavenly and worldly facts in 14 centuries ago, the facts being explored one by one by the man using the newly constructed and explored equipment and tools. 

Qur'an, through the tongue of an illiterate man reports that all material creature are created as pairs, and these are only some few advantages and benefits of the holy Qur'an. 

Finally I appreciate those who formed this spiritual setting and pray that God may provide the memorizers and reciters of Qur'an with the best.

Ramadan is going well for me this year, I'm getting to spend even more time every day meditating on the Qur'an and in Salaat. There's nothing more I could wish for, truly. It's a blessing of a time.
