Ramadan Kareem

Well, maybe one day left and Ramadan will start. The Holy Month of Ramadan. I hope we will learn how to benefit by this priceless month and work right in it. I hope we will start THE TRUE JIHAD "resisting the evils inside us". To struggling and fighting our bad whims and desires. Not only stop eating food or drink water, but also stop being evil and try to learn to be tolerant and sympathize with people. It's a great chance for us to starting over and open dialogues. It's a big chance to gain love and mercy and realize the real goals of Holy Ramadan.
It's really so sad to see people thinking that Ramadan is the month of eating all kind of foods or wasting it watching endless series and shows. You should rise to the real level of Holy Ramadan.
Read This:


((Changing the music))

When I open my computer, it's starting with music "starting music" and ending with "shutdown music". When I learnt how I could change it, I put different sounds: music, birds singing, parts of songs, etc. then, I found excellent thing to start and end my computer with.
Starting with: Beesm Allah Al Rahman Al Raheem= In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Ending with: Al Hamdu Le Allah Raab Al A'Lameen= Praise Be To Allah, Lord of the Worlds.

You can download what I put in my own computer here:

Now, you should know how to apply this in your computer. Go to:

Start >>> Settings >>> Control Panel

Then double Click on (Sounds and Audio Devices). Then, Choose Sounds Section. Down in "Program Events", Scroll down to: Exit Windows, Click on it and choose Browse, then Go to where you saved the audio of ending sound and choose it. Then, scroll down to: Start Windows, Click on it and choose Browse, then Go to where you saved the audio of Starting sound and choose it. Then, Click on Apply and Ok.
Now, you will hear what you chose for ending and starting every time you open or close your PC.

Remember: only wav Formats are accepted.

I hope you will try my own idea of starting with God name and ending with thanking him. Even for a short period if you can. You can choose "None" if you don't like to start any sound or music in your PC. It's all up to you.

Just to clearify-

In the Japanese language, kamikaze (IPA: [kamikaze]) (Japanese:神風), usually translated as "divine wind" (kami is the word for "god", "spirit", or "divinity"; and kaze for "wind"), came into being as the name of a legendary typhoon said to have saved Japan from a Mongol invasion fleet in 1281.

In Japanese, the exact term used for units carrying out these suicide attacks during World War II is tokubetsu kōgeki tai (特別攻撃隊), which literally means "special attack unit." This is usually abbreviated to tokkōtai (特攻隊).

More specifically, suicide air squads that came from the Imperial Japanese Navy were officially called shinpū tokubetsu kōgeki tai (神風特別攻撃隊, "Divine wind special attack units", shinpū is the on-reading of the same characters that form the word kamikaze), in obvious reference to the 13th century typhoon, nowadays commonly known as kamikaze tokubetsu kōgeki tai though. The English language picked up the word kamikaze to designate Japanese suicide units in general, and this usage has gained acceptance worldwide. Japan continues to prefer the term tokkōtai (特攻隊), although the foreign usage of kamikaze is widely acknowledged.

In fact, the word "kamikaze" was never used by the Japanese during WWII; they used the pronunciation shinpū, which is the on'yomi or Chinese-derived pronunciation. The word was misread by American translators during the war and given the kun'yomi or indigenous Japanese pronunciation, and the mistaken pronunciation stuck. After the war, when the Japanese had largely renounced their militaristic past, they re-imported the word with the pronunciation "kamikaze" from American media.

--from the entire History of World War II and the 'demeaning' comments made about Buddhism on this blog, I think if you were to research the real history, such as this blurp taken from Wikipedia... you will find that Kamikaze has nothing to do with Buddhism and neither are relater, never have been, and never will be.

I wanted to give the "origin" of the word Kamikaze (an American media word invented for propoganda use much like the word Al-Qaeda) to show that the word, along with the act of Kamikaze was a type of military technique.

It was an attack utilized by the Japanese Imperial Military used during World War II, and it has nothing to do with religion, any religion, whatsoever. It simply was the name of a military tactic, and a name which Americans utilized in the media.

If you read the above article you will find out that the Japanese word and meaning is different than what the American media portrayed of the Japanese dive bombers. Needless to say their is no religious influence, no religious boundary trumping, and no relationship to religion by any of the Kamikaze.

By the way, the comment that Kamikaze was influenced by Buddhism was the most hateful remark I've ever heard, and made by someone obviously not educated.

The reason the Japanese wore white head bands with a red sun with rays coming off of it (the Imperial royal war Flag) was because prior to World War II the Japanese believed the Emperor of Japan to be the descendant of the SUN GOD. But this is vaguely related to Shinto customs, and has nothing to do directly with what personal beliefs the soldiers pre-WWII had.

Again, the killing was not a propoganda to spread a religious creed. World Ward II was the largest war ever fought on planet Earth... and had more to do with the fact that Hitler was taking over Europe, Invaded Poland, and attempted genocide of a ethnic race of human beings. This was an evil that had to be stopped, and it was an evil everyone understood.

It wasn't like todays "vague" idea of a 'war on terror'. Hitler was an evil man... and most people agree that he had to be stopped. Japan was just on the wrong side, but if you study history... Japan's involvement with the AXIS nations comes from an ecconomical conflict with the U.S.A amounting in the 'Pacific War' which would have inevitably happened regardless of WWII or not.

Holy Month of Ramadan.... I was in Egypt as a tourist (before the cartoon crisis) amd Ramadan came up. I didn't know what it was about, but I quickly learned: on the second day, when walking along the locals I would not eat or drink with them watching. No need to make it harder for them. (but coming from a cold country there's no way I could go one whole day without drinking in the heat)

After sunset people would invite me to iftar or tea, and we'd talk abut God and life. A truly uplifting experience. I realised that at late afternoon, both the rich and the poor would be equally hungry and thirsty. Beautiful.

Next time I'm in a Muslim country during Ramadan, I'll share even more in it.

May you all look within and find peace. Happy Ramadan.

Ramadan Mubarak brother Adam. May God accept ur truthful prayers and Duaa during this Blessed month and cover u with his Mercy and Love.

Rz: thank u . wish u best of the best in this Holy Month.

Tristan Vick: Ramadan Mubabark to u too dear. And thank u so much for clarifying the kamikaze case. type of military technique, so we can consider Al-Qaeda as anything but religious as they "Taliban" got support of USA to fight Soviets and then, they became enemy when interests went into crossroads.

Halalhippie: it was great u were in Egypt during Ramdanan and touched somehow the feelings and spiritual atmosphere of Ramadan with oridenary people. I can understand that, it's hard on u and with hot weather make it more harder, but u were nice to share people and be close to them. Hope u will enjoy sharing people more and more next time.
Happy Ramadan to u too dear.

Karin dear. Blessed Ramadan on u and on ur loved ones.

Abed: Thank u dear brother.
كل عام و أنت بأفضل حال و أهنأ بال يا رب :)

Hamze: thanks dear. yi3nad 3alaik too inshallah.
وكل عام و انت لله أقرب

Uncanny how Ramadan and Yom Kippur are basically the same thing... but maybe it's not so strange... after all both religions say they believe in the one true God, and both religions come from the same regional area with similar thinking, and both religions are religions of the Book... whether or not the people obey that book is a different matter.

Maybe it's not such a leap of faith to say both religions are more or less versions of the same basic concept. More or less.

Tristan: what's Yom Kippur?!! Yom literally means Day in Arabic, but what do you mean by Kippur. The day of Forgiveness!!!
I totally agree with u. all divine religions started in same regional area "the Middle East". So, hope we will find a common basic to start living with peace and harmony.
