    The calendar year of Islam begins not with the birthday of our prophet (peace be on him), not from the time that the revelation came to him (Bethat) nor from the time of his ascension to heaven, but with the migration (Hijra) from an undesirable environment into a desirable place to fulfill Allah's command. It was migration from a plot that was set by the leaders of the Quraysh who were plotting to kill prophet Muhammad, and to destroy the truth that today is being conveyed to mankind everywhere against tyranny and injustice. Their purpose was to destroy the foundation of the Islamic state, the Sunnah of the tradition of the prophet, and to prevent the revelation being delivered by Allah's messenger to mankind.


    The Islamic calendar is reckoned from the time of migration (Hijra) of Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) from Mecca to Madina. The Prophet's decision to migrate from Mecca came after several years of inhuman treatment of the faithful by the powerful tribes who were united despite all their feuds to stop the spread of Islam.

    Prophet Mohammad's decision to leave Mecca coincided with the infidel's plan to assassinate him. In 622 AD, the Quresh tribesmen held a meeting and decided that a band of young men, one from each tribe, should assassinate Prophet Mohammad collectively so that their responsibility for the murder could not be placed on any particular tribe.

    On the eventful night, the Prophet asked his cousin Ali Ben Abutalib to take his place in bed to make the Meccans think that he was asleep. The Prophet himself slipped out unobserved alongwith his loyal follower Abu Bakr (who was chosen as the first C aliph after the death of the prophet). They secretly made their way to a cave named Thawr, not far from Mecca and lay in hiding there for a day or two until Abu Bakr's son reported that the search for him had been given up. Then the two set out from Madina on camel back. They reached Quba, on the edge of the Madina oasis, on 12th Rabiul Awwal. With Mohammad's arrival in Quba a new phase of his career and glory of Islam started.

    This migration has a special significance in the history of Islam. It ended the Meccan period of humiliation and torture and began the era of success. His own people to whom he preached Islam for 13 years neglected the Prophet of Islam. But he was cordially received in Madina as an honored chief.

    In Madina his power enhanced day by day. Here he was not only the religious leader but took the role of a politician and statesman too. Prophet Mohammad expired ten years after his migration to Madina but only in one decade he changed the course of human history.

    In view of this special significance of the Prophet's migration the consultative body advised the Second Islamic Caliph, Omar ben Khattab, to start the Islamic year from the date of migration of the Prophet from Mecca to Madina.

    According to early Moslem scholars, Abu Musa Al Shari drew attention of Omar to an improperly dated debenture or IOU which was payable in the month of Shaban but it was not clear which Shaban was actually meant, the present one or the coming one. Omar called the dignitaries for consultation who made several suggestions to begin the Islamic calendar.

    Ali (who later became the fourth caliph) suggested the Hijra as the beginning of the Islamic year with Moharram as its first month. Consequently, Caliph Omar in 21 A.H. or 641 A.D introduced the Islamic calendar in its present form.

    QURANIC GUIDANCE

    The guidance about the Islamic calendar is taken from the following verses from the Holy Quran: (In the name of GOD most gracious and most merciful)

    "Lo the number of the months with God is twelve months." IX:36.

    "They ask thee, of new moons. Say: They are fixed seasons for mankind and for the pilgrimage." II:189.

    "He it is who appointed the sun a splendor and the moon a light, and measured for her stages, that ye might know the number of the years, and the reckoning." X:5

    The Islamic Calendar of 12 Lunar Months is determined by observation of the new moon with no effort by intercalation (addition) or other means to synchronize the Lunar year with the Solar year.

    Why didn't Islam prohibit slavery by a ruling like Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation?

    Truthfully, if we want to talk about this issue, we have to talk about how slavery was banned in America.
    Abraham Lincoln was one of the great presidents of America who issued the Emancipation proclamation in 1863 to abolish slavery. It freed 4 million black slaves which led to quake the society. This resulted in a civil war that lasted for 5 years and left 500,000 dead and 500,000 injured. And one million out of four died out of sick or hunger for they could not afford themselves.
    Later in 1865, The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution outlaws slavery and involuntary servitude, except as punishment for a crime.
    Then number of amendments granted the slaves citizenship and right to vote, but it was not applied.
    In 1879, in what known as Kansas exodus, the United States witnessed a mass immigration of the black Americans who escaped discrimination.
    In 1896 the Racial segregation was applied.
    The years between 1945 and 1970 witnessed a lot of struggles and civil movements.
    Despite all these efforts, racism still exists in the United States till nowadays.

    Slavery exists nowadays in various countries in many forms (women - children trafficking - legalizing prostitution - the red light districts are prevalent in USA, some European & Far East countries - illegal trade of human organs)

    So, it is apparent that solving issues which are so ingrained in society in such an abrupt manner can have several adverse effects. As we see that 150 years after the abolition of slavery, Black people still could not sit next to white people on public buses.
    This is because of the way Mrs. Lincoln and his followers fixed the problem of slavery. He did not realize that slavery is just a symptom, while the disease itself is Racism. And this is the most dangerous thing, treating the symptom instead of treating the disease itself.

    On the contrary, Islam offered the right solution for the problem of slavery. It took drastic measures and radical solution to uproot racism which was a social malady. At the same time, Islam got rid of slavery in a gradual manner, without shaking the foundation of society. This is why we have no slaves, but in America there are still because they have racism.

    The measures of Islam to eradicate racism and abolish slavery:

    • It grantes paradise to whoever frees a slave. Allah said “and what will make you know the path that steep?(it is) freeing a neck (slave etc.)" ( Qur'an 90:11-13)
    • One of the ways of spending zakat (alms-giving) is by freeing slaves. “Alms are for the poor and the needy and those employed to administer the (funds) : for those whose hearts have been (recently) reconciled (to truth); for those in bondage and in dept; in cause of Allah; and for way farerthus is it) ordained by Allah, and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom”. (Qur'an 9:60)
    • Emancipation of slaves was also the legally required expiation for certain sins or failures in religious duties, for example, the breaking of an oath or the breaking of a fast.
    • Freeing a slave is required also in the accidental killing, ‘it is not for a believer to kill a believer except (that it be) by mistake, and whosoever kills a believer by mistake (it is ordained that) he must set free a believing slave’. (Qur'an 4: 92). This form of atonement is critical as it means that, in Islam, freedom is equal to life. You took the life of someone, so you have to give freedom to someone else.

    • The most beautiful way Islam employed to free slaves is called ‘the emancipation agreement’ or ‘the master-slave agreement’. It is Islamic innovation that was made to free slaves and to make the master and slave sit together at one table and be able to write contracts with one another.
    • Islam showed that the master should be the first one help the slave obtain his own freedom and that he should put the first payment as a gift. God, the Exalted, says(what means):“and such of your slaves as seek a writing (of emancipation), give them such writing, if you know that they are good and trustworthy. And give them something yourselves out of the wealth of Allah which He has bestowed upon you”. (Qur'an 24:33)

    These measures of Islam are signals for the masters that this slavery is about to end. So, free the slaves you have and do not buy any new ones. If you want slaves, they have to wear the same clothes that you wear. They have to eat the same food that you eat. And if you beat your servant he is automatically free.
    Who would want to own a slave that way?!

    Now it is obvious how Islam solved the problem of slavery by this unique, unprecedented, matchless, remedy that was prescribed by God, the All- knowing, the Wise.

    Slavery in Islam is INHIBITED not prohibited
    Not forbidden by a law but by: man's conscience, free will, strong determination to attain expiation or purification from sins or craving desire to please God, the Exalted, and an overwhelming ambition to enter paradise.
    Unlike Christianity, racism in Islam is the ORIGINAL sin .Racial discrimination motivated Satan to disobey God's Commandment to prostrate to Adam. God, the Exalted, says (what means):

    "And We created you, then fashioned you, then told the angels: Fall ye prostrate before Adam! And they fell prostrate, all save Iblis, who was not of those who make prostration. He said: What hindered thee that thou didst not fall prostrate when I bade thee ? (Satan) said: I am better than him. Thou createdst me of fire while him Thou didst create of mud.He said: Then go down hence! It is not for thee to show pride here, so go forth! Lo! thou art of those degraded."(Qur'an 7:11-13)
    Consequently, all Islamic countries are free from any form of slavery.This indicates how Islam, remedied slavery without causing any loss

    May God guide us all to His True path.

    Why are non-Muslims not allowed in the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah?

    Answer:

    It is true that non-Muslims are not allowed in the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah, by law. The following points will serve to elucidate the possible reasoning behind such a restriction.


    1. All citizens are not permitted in the cantonment area
    In every country, there are certain areas where a common citizen of that country cannot enter. Only a citizen who is enrolled in the military or those who are connected with the defense of the country are allowed in the cantonment area. Similarly, Islam is a Universal Religion for the entire world and for all human beings. The cantonment areas of Islam are the two holy cities of Makkah and Madinah.
    Here only those who believe in Islam and are involved in the defense of Islam i.e. the Muslims are allowed.

    It would be illogical for a common citizen to object to the restriction on entering a cantonment area. Similarly it is not appropriate for non-Muslims to object to the restriction on non-Muslims against entering Makkah and Madinah.


    2. Visa to enter Makkah and Madinah

    a. Whenever a person travels to a foreign country, he has to first apply for a visa i.e. the permission to enter that country. Every country has its own rules, regulations and requirements for issuing a visa. Unless their criteria are met, they will not issue a visa.

    b. One of the countries which is very strict in issuing a visa is the United States of America, especially when issuing visas to citizens of the third world. They have several conditions and requirements to be fulfilled before they issue a visa.

    c. When I visited Singapore, it was mentioned on their immigration form - death to drug traffickers. If I want to visit Singapore I have to abide by the rules. I cannot say that death penalty is a barbaric punishment. Only if I agree with their requirements and conditions will I be permitted to enter the country.

    d. The Visa – The primary condition required for any human being to enter Makkah or Madina is to say with his lips, La ila ha illallahMuhammedurRasulullah meaning that ‘there is no God but Allah and Muhammed (pbuh) is His Messenger.’

    It is alleged that Islam divides mankind into Believers and Infidels/Kafirs;
    Response;
    Kafir means one who rejects or denies.
    Kafir is derived from the word Kufr, which means to conceal or to reject or to deny.
    Kafir is the one who conceals or rejects or denies. This is contrary to how some people wrongly translate Kafir as Infidel.
    Kufr is not a curse or an insult. A Muslim also has to do Kufr, not with Allah but with all that is worshipped other than, or along with Allah.
    "Whoever disbelieves in taghoot (yakfur bialtaghooti) and believes in Allah alone, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break" The Holy Quran, Chapter 2, Verse 256.
    So a Muslim also has to do Kufr, He has to be a Kafir of Taghoot. Taghoot means all that is worshipped other than, or along with, Allah. If Kafir was an insulting word, Allah would not have used it for Muslims.
    In general Kafir is a term used for a person who rejects Islam. However if a Non-Muslim considers being called a Kafir as an abuse, it is due to his/her misunderstanding about Islam. He or she needs to reach out to proper sources of understanding Islam and Islamic terminology, and not only will he feel abused, but rather appreciates Islam in the proper perspective.
