The Feast of Ramadhan

I was surprise this morning when I heard that tomorrow will be holiday... I wasn't watching any TV news lately so you can say I'm very behind everything ... happening in this world (Y_Y)
and so I research at the net since my curiosity got me eto na nga research2x sa net...

The Feast of Ramadan

Ramadan is an Islam celebration of honor and faith. To comprehend the said event it is important to be aware first about the origins of Islam.

The Prophet Muhammad (Mohammad, Mohammed) was born in Mecca in 570 A.D. When he was 40 years old, the Angel Gabriel appeared to him and told him he was called to become a messenger of God. She taught him the verses of the Holy Koran, the Holy book of Islam. In Arabia at that point in time, there was a belief in many Gods. Muhammad taught that there was only one God- Allah, which means God in Arabic. The word Muslim literally means “one who gives himself to God” in Arabic. Islam means “submission or obedience to God.”

Muslims do not eat pork, but other meats are allowed, and animals must be killed in a way painless.
The passage of the Holy Koran is that Allah is the creator of the world. Muslims should surrender to the willpower of Allah.

The Five Pillars of Islam (Arabic: أركان الإسلام) is the term given to the five duties incumbent on every Muslim. These duties are Shahadah(profession of faith), Salat (ritual prayer), Zakat (alms giving), Sawm (fasting during Ramadan), and Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca). These five practices are essential to Sunni Islam. Shi'a Muslims subscribe to eight ritual practices which substantially overlap with the Five Pillars.[1] Twelvers have five fundamental beliefs which relates to Idahoan. [2]
The concept of five pillars is taken from the Hadith collections, notably those of Sahih Al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. The Qur'an does not speak of five pillars, although one can find in it scattered references to their associated practices.

The Feast of Ramadan
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islam calendar.

Muslims believe that is was during the month of Ramadan that Mohammed, the prophet, received the Quran from Allah (God). At the end of Ramadan, the Id-al-Fitr (eed-al-fit-er), or the Feast of the Fast Breaking, is celebrated. Eid means recurring happiness or festivity . Greetings of "Eid-Mubarak" or "a blessed Eid" are exchanged. A very important aspect of eid is the charity which all the Muslims are expected to extend to the needy. The first Eid of the year, is known as "Eid Al Fitr". Al Fitr literally means breaking of fast. Thus Eid Al Fitr is celebrated on the first day of Shawaal, the tenth month in the Muslim calendar, to mark the end of a month long fast during the month of Ramadan. It is considered unholy to fast on this day. It is also a day of forgetting old grudges and ill feelings towards other fellow men.

Calvary Chapel: My First Communion (9th Visit)

Last night, I finally experienced my first communion with Calvary Chapel. I knew there was a communion every First Wednesday of the month but I'm not sure if I was eligible since am considering myself "a 2months old baby" within their service.
The topic last night was:

Don't Judge

from the old testament 1 Samuel 16, I was feeling dizzy while listening (I have no dinner yet) and it was already around 20:00 anyway I did feel tired but still I'm not weak.

here are the verses of the teachings for last night 1 Samuel 16:1-23

1 And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.

2 And Samuel said, How can I go? if Saul hear it, he will kill me. And the LORD said, Take an heifer with thee, and say, I am come to sacrifice to the LORD.

3 And call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will shew thee what thou shalt do: and thou shalt anoint unto me him whom I name unto thee.

4 And Samuel did that which the LORD spake, and came to Bethlehem. And the elders of the town trembled at his coming, and said, Comest thou peaceably?

5 And he said, Peaceably: I am come to sacrifice unto the LORD: sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice. And he sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.

6 And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the LORD's anointed is before him.

7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

8 Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.

9 Then Jesse made Shammah to pass by. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.

10 Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The LORD hath not chosen these.

11 And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.

12 And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.

13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.

14 But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.

15 And Saul's servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee.

16 Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well.

17 And Saul said unto his servants, Provide me now a man that can play well, and bring him to me.

18 Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the LORD is with him.

19 Wherefore Saul sent messengers unto Jesse, and said, Send me David thy son, which is with the sheep.

20 And Jesse took an ass laden with bread, and a bottle of wine, and a kid, and sent them by David his son unto Saul.

21 And David came to Saul, and stood before him: and he loved him greatly; and he became his armourbearer.

22 And Saul sent to Jesse, saying, Let David, I pray thee, stand before me; for he hath found favour in my sight.

23 And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.

Pastor Ken Pascua also taught us not to judge even of what the person cover or actions.
If I can get the audio of his teaching I will post it here but so far these are all I can write as I'm still feeling dizzy and I need to get to work (^_^)
