Muslims Celebrate Eidul Fitri in Tuvalu

19th August was the date when Ramadan was ended in Tuvalu. Furthermore according to Islamic celender, month of Syawal was on August 20 whereas Muslims performed Eidul Fitri prayer congregationally at the mosque. Eidul Fitri prayer was led by Imam of Tuvalu Mosque, Mr. Muhammad Idris. On his Eid sermon, he addressed the congregations that what we have achieved during month of Ramadan should remain with us till the next Ramadan. The progress in the obedience, righteousness, and devotion to Allah should be continued as the result of Taqwa. The continuation of all the efforts made during month of Ramadan would be the source of blessings and as a means to attaining the pleasure of Allah.

Become true servants of Allah

God comes down to the lower heaven for those who worship Him during Tahajjud outside of Ramadan. However, in Ramadan His affection grows further still and fortunate are those who take full advantage of it and then promise that they will continue with the efforts for Tahajjud and Nawafil (optional Prayers) through which they have experienced nearness to God that they will continue with their regularity in Salat and reading the Holy Qur’an. God Who knows the state of our hearts says to the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) to tell His servants that if they seek from Him with the promise that they will make efforts to continue their dues of devotion for Him, He will remain close to them in Ramadan and also after Ramadan.

Tracing the Post-Crucifixion Footsteps of Jesus Christ(as)

The final, and most dramatic piece of evidence supporting Jesus Christ(as)’s travel to Kashmir is the Rozabal Tomb in the Kan Yaar district of Srinagar, Kashmir. Local traditions and documents record this as the tomb of Yus Asaf. We have already mentioned sources that connect the person of Yus Asaf directly with Jesus Christ(as). This tomb offers physical evidence to support the oral and written traditions that all point to this being Jesus Christ(as)’s final resting place. This topic has been explored in detail in previous articles in the The Review of Religions.[18] The tomb is known as the tomb of Yus Asaf, and there is evidence to support that Yus Asaf was the name Jesus(as) was known by in the East. In addition to the similar teachings, in parables we also learn that Yus Asaf was a ‘Prince Prophet’ who travelled from the Holy Land to flee persecution. The most significant piece of physical evidence linking the inhabitant of the Rozabal to Jesus Christ(as) are the carved footprints next to the tomb. These footprints show marks or scars on the feet. The scars are at different places on each foot, consistent with the scars of one who has been crucified with a single nail driven through both feet.

Did Jesus(as) Really Die, Rise from the Dead and Ascend to Heaven?

Strangely, Paul never mentions the physical, bodily resurrection of Jesus(as). He also does not mention the empty tomb, appearances to the Disciples, or the ascension of Jesus(as) into heaven. In Galatians 1, he mentions that he first met Jesus(as) in a ‘revelation’ on the road to Damascus, not in the flesh. 1 Corinthians 15; Paul says the original eye-witnesses—Peter, James, the twelve Disciples, and hundreds of others—saw Jesus(as) the same way Paul did, then he describes how the body that dies is not the body that rises. This indicates quite strongly that Paul did not believe in the physical resurrection, but something completely different.
