Ramadan 2011

So Ramadan is upon us once again, less than a month to go! Each year we find a lot of websites declaring the start date for Ramadan based on calculations and estimates which they fail to declare. This leads people onto believe the start date of Ramadan has been set and decided upon when it is not the case. A lot of people are forgetting the tradition and sunnah taught by our prophet Muhammed (pbuh).

Allah's Messenger (pbuh) said:

'Whenever you sight the new moon observe fast, and when you sight it break it and if the sky is cloudy for you, then observe fast for thirty days.'

Even if we do have an estimate for Ramadan, it needs to be made clear that it is only an estimate before writing it in stone.

Ramadan 2011 is expected to start on either Sunday 31st of July or Monday 1st of August 2011 depending on the sighting of the new moon.

Please keep revisiting us in the coming weeks for when we will announce the start of Ramadan 2011.

Israel consents to deployment of Egyptian troops in Sinai

Israel consents to deployment of Egyptian troops in SinaiEgypt has sent around 800 soldiers to the Sinai Peninsula in response to the popular demonstrations demanding the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak. Israel gave its consent for the deployment following an official request from the Egyptian government. The troops are concentrated around the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh in southern Sinai. The whole peninsula has been an almost totally demilitarised zone since the 1979 peace treaty was signed between Egypt and Israel.

Pressure builds on Mubarak

Hosni MubarakProtests continue as world leaders keep up pressure, urging for sweeping reforms in Egypt.

The United States and other leading European nations have urged Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, to refrain from violence against unarmed protesters and work to create conditions for free and fair elections.

Washington told Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Saturday it was not enough simply to "reshuffle the deck" with a shake-up of his government and pressed him to make good on his promise of genuine reform.
