  1. Author Tariq Ramadan is seen during an interview with Reuters in New York, US, April 8, 2010. REUTERS/Mike Segar/Files PARIS: A 45-year-old woman filed a new rape case in France on Wednesday against Swiss academic Tariq Ramadan, the third against the Islamic studies professor, judicial sources said on Wednesday. The woman accused Ramadan of violent sexual assault on multiple occasions between early 2013 and June 2014, according to the filing seen by Reuters. Ramadan?s lawyers were not immediately available for comment. Ramadan was ordered last month to remain in custody in France and was notified that he was the target of a full investigation into rape allegations, which he denied. Ramadan is a grandson of Hasan al-Banna, a thinker and activist who founded the Muslim Brotherhood. He enjoys a substantial following among young Muslims and has challenged French restrictions on wearing veils.
  2. Author Tariq Ramadan talks with a journalist after a conference at the Er-Rahma mosque in Nantes, France, April 25, 2010. REUTERS/Stephane Mahe/Files PARIS: Swiss academic Tariq Ramadan ? a professor of Islamic studies ? was ordered to remain in custody in France on Friday and notified that he was the target of a full investigation into rape accusations, a source with the prosecutor?s office said. Ramadan ? who denies the allegations ? took temporary leave in November from his post at Britain?s University of Oxford. He vowed to sue for slander two women whose rape accusations prompted a preliminary judicial inquiry. Friday?s announcement turned that preliminary inquiry into a full, open-ended investigation where the French magistrates' stated goal is to establish whether Ramadan should stand trial. In France, the launch of a full investigation implies that initial findings justify further pursuit in the view of the investigating magistrates but does not mean the matter is sure to go to trial. Ramadan is a grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder and activist Hasan al-Banna. He enjoys a substantial following among young Muslims and has challenged French restrictions on wearing veils. Police arrested him and took him into custody earlier this week in France.
  3. Islamic scholar Tariq Ramadan took a leave of absence on Tuesday from the University of Oxford following multiple rape and sexual misconduct allegations. Photo: AFP file LONDON: Scholar Tariq Ramadan took a leave of absence on Tuesday from the University of Oxford following multiple rape and sexual misconduct allegations, the British institution said. ?By mutual agreement, and with immediate effect, Tariq Ramadan has taken a leave of absence from the University of Oxford,? it said in a statement. Ramadan's duties will be reassigned and he will not be present on campus, the university said. The Swiss-born professor has denied two allegations of rape made by French women, as well as further allegations in Swiss media of sexual misconduct against teenage girls in the 1980s and 1990s. Oxford said the claims had caused ?heightened and understandable distress? and its principal concern remains ?the wellbeing of our students and staff?. ?An agreed leave of absence implies no presumption or acceptance of guilt and allows Professor Ramadan to address the extremely serious allegations made against him, all of which he categorically denies,? the university said. Ramadan has furiously denied the allegations as a ?campaign of lies launched by my adversaries? and is battling them in the courts.
  4. Ramadan has finally started. For a month our Muslim brothers will be fasting for over 16 hours a day. The eating window will be restricted to about 8 hours. The struggle here is to keep up their workout and strength levels. While it is a welcome treat for weight watchers, a lot of dudes may be worried about losing their gains. Let’s find out how exactly intermittent fasting in Ramadan affects your workout and how you can effectively manage it. Best Time for Weight Loss © Thinkstock For people who want to lose a few extra pounds, this may be the best time to do it. Since it is almost 16 hours of fasting, it is long enough to utilize all your excessive glycogen stores. Your fat reserves will also get their turn to burn themselves to provide you with energy. What you need to keep in mind is to avoid all the empty calorie based products that contain sugar in any form. Thesto be used as a fuel. How To Manage Your Protein Intake © Youtube The long fasting window can take a toll on your gains. Prolonged fasting is counter-productive to building muscle. To manage this, you need to consume complex carbohydrates so that your body is able to utilize them over a longer period of time. A few good sources of complex carbohydrates are sweet potato, potato, corn and legumes. Since fat takes the longest time to digest, always include good healthy fats in your diet. Best fat sources include nuts, olive oil and coconut oil. Now, protein intake is a tricky game here. First, your total intake of protein matters. Second, the timing of protein consumption is more important. There are studies to support both schools of thought. While there is no second opinion that your body will absorb maximum 30 gms of protein per serving, there is little time in Ramadan to consume various meals with high protein. Solution Consume foods that contain good quantity of casein in them so that your body gets a constant supply of amino acids for a longer period of time. Natural forms to consume more casein are milk and cottage cheese. Casein supplementation is also a good choice. Ramadan and Workout © Youtube Leaving weight training completely for almost a month would not be a good idea. There’s more muscle atrophy because of not working out. So, when should you workout? Weight training before breaking your fast will almost be impossible. So, plan your workout after you have completed your fast. You may have a few simple carbs before your workout to help you in your training after fasting. Branched chain amino acid supplements (BCAA) will also come in handy before your workout to minimize any muscle loss. Avoid any caffeine or green tea as they are diuretic and may make you feel dehydrated. Meal Timing and Recovery You need to plan your meals in advance so that you don’t waste any time in preparation. Try to keep a gap of two hours between your meals. If you feel you don’t get enough time to recover in the night, sleep in the afternoon. Also, if recovery becomes an issue, try to hit the gym on alternate days rather than hitting it daily. The Final Word Losing gains is more psychological than factual. The problem is that people get too worried about their gains. Because of this fear, they either lose the track of their diet or training. Don’t worry too much about your present gains in the gym. If you plan your day ahead, you can manage your diet as well as your workout. Successful meal and workout planning is the only solution. Even if at the end of this month you feel that there has been a slight change in your strength levels, you will regain it in few days if you keep your workout and diet on track. If you stop working out completely, it will take you a longer time to get back to the same level. Maintaining consistency is key! Ramadan Mubarak!

  5. The holy month of Ramadan has arrived and our Muslim brothers will be fasting from dawn to dusk (without even water). It is believed, these 30 days of fasting teaches discipline, patience, and a divine connection to spirituality. However, if you are a lifter, things can get a bit tricky for you when it comes to training and eating to build muscle. This article will be addressing just that. Prolonged Fasting And Its Effects On Metabolism Depending on the country you live in and the time zone, the fasting window can extend anywhere from 10-18 hours. In India though, it goes up to 16 hours at max. A 16:8 fasting to eating window is created, for the next 30 days. Not even water is allowed during fasting hours. Prolonged fasting can- 1) Slow down the metabolism and the body will start hoarding fat as a means of survival. 2) Lead to overeating once the fast is broken. Workout Intelligently Not training during Ramadan is a mistake. Training prevents muscle loss. Just tweak it according to the fasting and eating hours. Keeps these pointers in mind- · Keep your workout to a medium or at a low intensity. This period is not to gain muscle. It is to preserve and maintain your gains. · Keep your workout duration short. Don’t keep grinding for over 60 minutes at maximum output. · Focus on compound lifts. They are the bang for your buck during Ramadan. You can afford to skip isolation movements. · Stay away from cardio for the whole month. Cardio will make you sweat a lot, which your body can’t afford. Your body will already be very dehydrated. · The best time to train would be an hour or two, before breaking the fast. The Iftar (sunset meal) will become your post workout meal which will replenish the depleted glycogen stores due to training. Eat Accordingly The ‘iftar’ foods are astronomically delicious and when you haven’t eaten for 16 long hours, they come as a blessing. Sadly though, the foods are usually high carb and high fat and have to be eaten in just 6-hourur window. Therefore choosing the right foods make a lot of difference when it comes to supplementing your training. · Fried food and sweets are nothing but empty calories with negligible nutrition. Therefore, stay away from them. Stick to predominantly grilled protein rich stuff. · Choose more complex carbohydrates- oats, sweet potatoes, and wheat. Complex carbohydrates have a low glycaemic index (GI) value, they are slow digesting. Hence, you get a sustained nutrition supply. · Use casein protein or a whey blend for sustained protein supply. Take 1-2 scoops during Iftar (Sunset meal) and 1-2 scoops during Suhoor/Sehri (Pre-dawn meal). You will be good for the next 6-8 hours. · Protein sources like eggs, chicken, mutton, fish and paneer etc are your best friends. Moreover, do not forget essential healthy fats, like coconut oil, omega3, natural peanut butter and so on. · Stay away from coffee and tea (Caffeine), especially during Suhoor. Caffeine is diuretic in nature which supports dehydration and will make you feel more thirsty throughout. · During Suhoor, drink isotonic solutions, like coconut water or an electrol solution (take ¼ of a sachet). Electrolytes are essential for your body as it keeps you hydrated and supports brain function. Don’t Compromise On Sleep Sleep is what keeps you going during Ramadan. Having a power nap an hour before your workout can work in your favor. The nap refreshes you and keeps you ready for your workout. Moreover, throughout the day, you need to have at least 8-9 hours of sleep. Ramadan Mubarak!

  6. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson (C) shakes hands with a participant as he attends a signing ceremony between US President Donald Trump and Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud at the Royal Court in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia May 20, 2017. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/File Photo WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has declined a request to host an event to mark Islam's holy month of Ramadan, two US officials said, apparently breaking with a bipartisan tradition in place with few exceptions for nearly 20 years. Since 1999, Republican and Democratic secretaries of state have nearly always hosted either an iftar dinner to break the day's fast during Ramadan or a reception marking the Eid al-Fitr holiday at the end of the month, at the State Department. Tillerson turned down a request from the State Department's Office of Religion and Global Affairs to host an Eid al-Fitr reception as part of Ramadan celebrations, two US officials, who declined to be identified because they were not authorised to speak publicly, said. According to an April 6 memo seen by Reuters, the office ? which typically initiates such events ? recommended that Tillerson hold an Eid al-Fitr reception. His rejection of the request suggests there are no plans this year for any high-profile Ramadan function at the State Department. The month of fasting and prayer for Muslims gets under way in many countries on Saturday. When asked by Reuters to comment on Tillerson declining a request to host an Eid al-Fitr event in July for Ramadan, a State Department spokesperson said, "We are still exploring possible options for observance of Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the month of Ramadan. US ambassadors are encouraged to celebrate Ramadan through a variety of activities, which are held annually at missions around the world." Muslim activists have accused President Donald Trump's administration of having an unfriendly attitude toward Islam, encapsulated by its attempts to ban citizens of several Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. The administration says that while it strongly opposes militants, it has no quarrel with Islam. Aides point to Trump's visit this month to Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam where he addressed the leaders of more than 50 Muslim countries, as evidence of that. Members of Congress, Muslim civil society and community leaders, diplomats from Muslim countries and senior US officials usually attend the State Department Ramadan event, a symbol of the US government's diplomatic efforts with Muslim countries and people. If Tillerson avoids hosting one this year, that could send a message "that it is not as important to this administration to engage with Muslims", said former US diplomat Farah Pandith, who served in the Bush and Obama administrations and helped plan Ramadan events at the White House and State Department. Tillerson issued a statement on Friday to mark the start of Ramadan, which he called "a month of reverence, generosity, and self-reflection". "Most importantly, it is a cherished time for family and friends to gather and give charity to those who are less fortunate," he said. Past Ramadans Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright started the tradition 18 years ago of America's top diplomat hosting a public event for Ramadan, a lunar month. The secretary of state of the time usually gives remarks there on the meaning of Ramadan. In April, the State Department's Office of Religion and Global Affairs made a request to Tillerson's office that he deliver remarks at an Eid al-Fitr reception this year, and suggested a two-week range of dates in July. The event would serve to "highlight State Department initiatives and the importance of Muslim engagement", the memo said. It noted that by hosting a reception just after Ramadan, rather than an iftar ? an often sumptuous dinner at sunset ? a State Department event could be held any time of the day, thus preventing "a very late evening for the Secretary". Several weeks later, that office and other offices at the State Department were alerted that Tillerson declined the request, the officials said. Reuters was told of the request being declined but did not see Tillerson's reply. An official with the Office of Religion and Global Affairs did not respond to a request for comment. Several prominent Muslim-American groups in the Washington area who are normally invited to the Ramadan event told Reuters this week that they had yet to receive an invitation from the State Department, which they said was unusual. "If they're having one, we haven't been invited," said Rabiah Ahmed, spokeswoman for the Muslim Public Affairs Council in Washington. A representative for her group has been invited to the State Department event in the past, she said. Fraught relationship Trump's administration has had a fraught relationship with Muslims. As a presidential candidate, the Republican urged a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States, called for more surveillance of mosques and warned that radical Muslims were "trying to take over our children". Trump has since toned down his rhetoric and courts have halted his temporary travel ban on people from six mostly Muslim countries. White House officials did not respond to a request for comment on whether they would continue the tradition this year of hosting a Ramadan-related event at the White House. The State Department celebrates other religious traditions though some of those commemorations are not as well-established as the State Department's Ramadan event. In 2014, then-secretary of state John Kerry hosted the first ever celebration at the State Department marking Diwali, the Hindu festival. The White House also traditionally hosts annual Christmas and Easter events as well as a Seder dinner to mark the Jewish Passover. The top US diplomat has personally hosted a Ramadan event every year since 1999, often in the State Department's grand Benjamin Franklin room, apart from three years. In 2006 and 2015, deputies of the secretary of state at the time hosted either an iftar dinner or an Eid al-Fitr reception. In 2014, Kerry hosted a reception for Eid al-Adha, another important Muslim holiday.

  8. Laylat al-Barat – Night of Salvation The 15th night of Shabaan is a very blessed night. According to the Hadith Shareef, the name of this Mubarak night is “Nisf Sha’baan” which means 15th night of Shabaan. The reason for this special night to attain its name of Laylat al-Bara’ah, meaning the Night of Salvation, Seeking Freedom from Azaab and Calamity, is that in this night the Barakaat and acceptance of repentance may be accomplished. Laylat al-Baraa’ah in Persian, as well as in Urdu, is called Shab-e Bara’at. It is the special night of seeking forgiveness and repenting to Almighty Allah, remembering our past sins and sincerely settling the mind that one will never commits sins in the future. All the deeds that are against Shari’ah must be totally avoided so that our Du’a and Istighfaar, hopefully, will be accepted. Advise from Imam of Ahlus Sunnah: Muslims should check themselves and AlaHadrat, Imam Ahmad Rida al-Qadiri Fadhil e-Bareilly (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) has given a beautiful advise in this regard. This great Imam said: “Verily the auspicious night of Shab-e- Bara’a is drawing near when the deeds of the slave will be presented to the Almighty Allah. I humbly supplicate in the Darbar-e-Aqdas of the AlmightyAllah that through the Wasila-e-Uzma of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) He forgives the sins and transgressions of all Muslims. Aameen. On this occasion, it should be the duty of all Sunni Muslims to forgive one another and to make sure that whatever debts owed to one another is settled. The importance of Huqooq al-Ibaad cannot be over-emphasised as this is among the pre-requisites for proper Ibaadat. I pray that all Muslims humbly remember this night and try as much as possible to perform Ibaadat and other pious deeds so that their Record of Deeds be presented in all dignity. Finally, I pray that the Almighty Allah assists you and I and the Muslim Ummah wherever you may be. Muslims should be aware of sincerity and honesty in all their deeds. May Almighty Allah forgive all of us. Aameen. — Faqeer Ahmad Rida Qadiri ” How to welcome the Night? On this auspicious night, you should perform fresh Ghusal and Wudhu and perform the two Rakaat of Tahhiyatul Wudhu. In every Rakaat, after the Suratul Fatiha, you should read Ayatul Kursi once and Surah Ahad 3 times. Also perform eight Rakaats of Salah with fourSalaams.In each Rakaat after the Surah Fatiha, you should read the Ayatul Kursi (once) and Surah Ahad fifty times. What to Recite immediately after Sunset? After sunset, you should recite “La Hawla walaa Quwwata illa Billahil-aliyil Azeem” forty times with three times Durood Shareef before and after. It is mentioned that by reciting this, Almighty Allah will forgive forty years of your sins and forty Hoors will await to serve you in Jannat al-Firdous. Countless Mercies: Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) has stated: “Verily! Almighty Allah directs His Special Grace on the world on this Night. He forgives my Ummah more than the number of wool that is found on the sheep of the Bani Kalb”. We should remember that in those days the Bani Kalb possessed the most number of sheep that any other tribe. How great is the Mercy of Almighty Allah on this night that He forgives millions of Muslims. We also realise from this that these numbers can only pertain to the Ahl as-Sunnah Wah Jama’ah collectively, for the righteous followers of the Hanafi, Shafi’i, Maliki and Hanbali indeed number millions of Muslims. The visitors of this Night: It is narrated that the departed souls (Arwaah) of the Muslims visit the houses of their friends and relatives on this night and proclaim: “O people of the house! You stay in our houses and enjoy the wealth that we have left behind. You use our children and take work from them, please perform our Esaale Sawaab. Verily our deeds have become complete, while your record of deeds is still spread”. If the people of the house perform the Esaale Sawaab and Khatam Shareef on this night, then the Arwaah depart will the Sawaab extremely happy and overjoyed all the time making Du’a for the people. Visit to the Cemetery: Hadrat Ayesha Siddiqa (radi Allahu ta’ala anha) reports: “One night, which was the 15th of Shabaan, I did not find the Beloved Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) in the house so I went in search of him. After a long search, I found him in Baqiah (the cemetery of Madinah) offering Du’a for the deceased and praying for their forgiveness”. (Baihaqi) A special point must be made to visit the cemetery during this night and pray for the deceased buried therein, as the Most Beloved Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) is been reported as having visited the cemetery on this night and spending a long time therein, lamenting, reading and praying for the deceased. To keep Fast: According to the Hadith Shareef which is narrated by Ibne Habaan (radi Allahu ta’ala anhu) that Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: “When the night of 15th Shabaan arrives spend the night awake and keep fast the next day”. Hadrat Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu ta’ala anhu) reports that the Most Beloved (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) of Allah ta’ala said often in his Khutba (sermon): “O people! Lighten and cleanse your bodies by way of fasting during Shabaan, so that it shall be easy and helpful to you for the fast during Ramadan. Whoso fasts for three days during Shabaan, all his past sins are wiped off”. (Baihaqi) Fasting is also recommended on the 13th, 14th and 15th of Shabaan. How to spend the Night? On this night, perform Nawaafil, recite the Qur’an Shareef, recite abundant Durood Shareef, Istighfaar and Kalima Tayyibah. It is also mentioned that if one reads Surah Dukhan seven times on this night, Almighty Allah will reward you with 70 worldly needs and 70 deeds for the Hereafter. Do not be amongst deprived of Mercy: Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: “Almighty Allah forgives all Muslims on this night, besides the fortune tellers, the magicians, the alcoholics, those who disrespect their parents and those who take part and encourage adultery”. In another narration, the following people have also been mentioned: One who deals in usury (Riba), One who wears his trousers below his ankle with pride and arrogance (In Arabia, people displayed their wealth and boasted in this manner), One who creates disunity among two Muslims, The person who unjustly takes away the right and property of another Muslim and has not yet rectified himself. All these persons are not shown Mercy on this auspicious Night. A humble appeal to seek pardon and ask Allah’s forgiveness Dear Muslim brothers, the Bountiful Allah in His Infinite Mercy has provided us with such an auspicious night so that we may take advantage of it and repent for our sins,and thus obtain His Grace and Favour. It is for us to take full advantage of it. During this night, offer special prayers and repent sincerely for our past sins and ask for His Forgiveness. Also on this night the Doors of Mercy and Forgiveness are opened wide, and those who sincerely grieve over and repent for their past sins and seek forgiveness from Allah are pardoned and forgiven by the Grace of Allah the Merciful. Each Tasbih or Du’a should begin and terminate with the recital of Durood Shareef and one who wishes for the acceptance of his Du’as should use the Wasila of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam). It is mentioned in “Gunyah at-Talibeen” that the month of Shaban according to some narrations is related to Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam). So, it is our duty, as the Ummat of Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Ta’ala Alaihi wa Sallam) to love and respect this month more than any other month (besides Ramadan). We should also offer abundantly salutations (Salaat-o-Salaam) upon the Most Beloved Prophet (SallAllahu Ta’ala Alaihi wa Sallam). While we are praying and asking for ourselves and family, we should also remember in our Du’as the Muslim Ummah facing calamities in many parts of the world, that may Allah Ta’ala grant them the strength and Istiqaamat (steadfastness) in Deen. Those weak Muslims who are under pressure from the West and modernisation, may Allah Ta’ala guide them and show them the right path so that they be in touch with their glorious past. Aameen. May Almighty Allah guide us on the path of the Ambiya and the Awliya. Aameen. Nafil Salaah to be read on Shab-e-Baraat: Basharat of Jannat: Sayyiduna Rasulullah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) is reported to have said that Allah Ta’ala instructs and assigns 100 angels to the person who performs 100 Nafil Salaahs on this auspicious night – 30 of which will bring the good news of Jannat, 30 angels to protect one from the Azaab (Punishment) of Dozakh (Hell), 30 to remove all misfortunes and miseries of this world and 10 angels to protect one from Shaitaan. The Guardian of Imaan: After performing Maghrib Salaah, read 2 rakaahs of Nafil. In the first rakaah, after Surah Fatiha, recite Surah Ikhlaas 3 times and Surah Falaq once.In the second rakaah, after Surah Fatiha, recite Surah Ikhlaas 3 times and Surah Naas once. After Salam, make Du’a and ask Allah to protect your Imaan. Barakah in Rizq: After Maghrib Salaah, read 2 rakaahs of Nafil. Thereafter, read Surah Yasin once, Surah Ikhlaas 21 times and Du’a Nisf Shabaan once. Then, make Du’a for Barakah in Rozi and ask Allah not to make you dependent on anyone. Long Life filled with Piety: After Maghrib Salaah, read 2 rakaahs of Nafil. Read Surah Yasin once. Then read Du’a Nisf Shabaan once. Thereafter, make Du’a for long life filled with piety and righteousness. Reward for ten thousand good Deeds: Anyone who performs 20 rakaahs of Nafil after Maghrib in such a way that after Surah Fatiha, recites Surah Ikhlaas 10 times in every rakaah, will be rewarded abundantly by Allah Ta’ala, and ten thousand good deeds will be recorded in his Amal Namaa (Book of Deeds). Death with complete Faith/Imaan: Anyone who performs 2 rakaahs of Nafil on the last Friday of Shabaan between Maghrib and Esha will die with full faith and Imaan. After Surah Fatiha, one should read Ayatul Kursi once, Surah Ikhlaas 10 times and Surah Falaq and Surah Naas once in both rakaahs. If the person who reads Nafil in such a way dies until the next Shabaan, will die with Imaan, Inshaa-Allah. — Sincere Advice — The performing of Salaatul Tasbeeh on this night is also very virtuous.
