Eid-ul-Adha encompasses act of purity – Imam Aabidi

first_imgEid-ul-Adha is a Muslim holiday which symbolises, among many aspects, purity. This is according to President and Imam of the Al-Mustafa Islamic Trust, Maulana Tasdeeq Aabidi. President and Imam of the Al-Mustafa Islamic Trust, Maulana Tasdeeq AabidiPersons gathered outside of a Mosque in Alexander Street, Kitty, GeorgetownThe religious holiday, which was celebrated by Muslims across Guyana and millions around the world, reminds of the willingness of the Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his only son, Ishmael in obedience to God.Imam Aabidi explained to Guyana Times on Monday, that through this sacrifice, Muslims are made pure. But although Ibrahim was ready to sacrifice his son, Allah spared his life and an animal was butchered instead.According to Imam Aabidi, “Eid means returning back. Returning back here means returning to our instinct nature and in terms of celebration…any joyful event, we call it Eid. So Eid-ul-Adha means Eid in which we offer a sacrifice, normally sacrificing an animal”.Animals such as sheep, goats, cows and even camels are slaughtered on this day to remind Muslims of the kindness of Allah.According to the Muslims’ holy book, the Quran, the Prophet Ibrahim, through his dream, received a command by Allah to sacrifice his own son Ishmael. The Imam explained that the Prophet’s son was also ready to obey this command so they both journeyed to a special place called Mina in Saudi Arabia to perform the ritual. “So he took his son and he closed his eyes, ‘cause he didn’t want to see his son with blood, and slaughtered his son, assuming that his son is slaughtered then once he opened his eyes he saw God almighty replaced a sheep in place of Ishmael,” the Imam preached.He added that Muslims have been continuing this act to remind them of the kindness of Allah. They also purify themselves by performing same. The act teaches them to sacrifice their time, ego and wishes for a better life, community and for the harmony of society.Before Eid-ul-Adha is celebrated, some Muslims fast, while others pilgrim.“This month in which we are in is the last month in the Islamic lunar calendar. On the 9th of this month, the pilgrim starts their Hajj. Hajj is divided into two part, one is umrah they would do before it where they go to the Holy Kaaba [House of God in Saudi Arabia] and circle seven times and they perform walking between the Safa and Marwa and certain other actions. After that, they start their Hajj. The Hajj starts from [the] 9th of this month. On this day, they go in a particular place called Arafat for prayers and other things. On this day some people fast while others choose not to. On the 10th day, Muslims march from Arafat to throw pebbles, another ritual. On the 10th morning, they go to the Mina, then go to slaughter their animals then they come back and shave their heads,” it was explained.Those who are not pilgrimaging would on this day sacrifice an animal to uphold this event. They would share the meat to the needy, family members and neighbours.Eid-ul-Adha, like other Muslim holidays, is determined by the sighting of the moon. The Imam said that every month, Muslims look for the moon and once it is sighted, the following day is regarded as the first day of the month. “This month like 10 days before [Monday] we saw the moon and once the moon is sighted from the next day we calculate the first day up to the 10th day of the month is Eid,” he said.Along with the slaughtering of animals, Muslims also celebrate this day by making various delicacies such as mithai and others. They usually distribute these sweets and even food to the less fortunate and neighbours to strengthen the bond of brotherhood as was explained by the Imam.last_img read more

Nigel Hughes’ “34 is majority” claim “dangerous” – Ram

first_imgNo-confidence resolution …GTUC urges political maturity Outspoken political commentator and Attorney Christopher Ram said his fellow legal colleague Nigel Hughes’ contention that the political Opposition needed a 34-seat majority to have the motion of no-confidence against the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition Government passed is “perplexing, illogical and frankly, dangerous.”After AFC parliamentarian Charrandas Persaud voted in favour of the motion on December 21, 2018, thus ensuring its successful passage, there have been a number of conspiracy theories ranging from allegations of bribe to the motion being null and void. Notable among the theories was that of former AFC Chairman Hughes,who is the husband of Government Minister Cathy Hughes, posited that a total of 34 of the 65 members in the National Assembly needed to vote in favour of the motion to ensure its successful passage.Article 106 (6) of the Constitution states, “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members in the National Assembly on a vote of confidence.”In response, Hughes posited that “Mathematically one half of the house is 32.5 members. There is no such thing as a half member so half of the house is 33 members. This is because you have to round up to identify half of the house. For a no-confidence motion to pass and be valid, the motion has to enjoy more votes than one-half of the full house, that is, 34 votes.”“The house voted 33:32. Thirty-three is a rounding down of what constitutes half of the house. The motion consequently was not carried. But in classic Guyanese style we have embarrassed ourselves again,” he writes, while citing cases of similar nature as precedence for his position.Ever since Hughes stated his position on the issue, Government has backtracked on the initial statements of following the prescribed articles in the Constitution and has now signalled intentions to move to the court as well as having the House Speaker, Dr Barton Scotland review the motion that was carried.Former AFC Chairman Nigel HughesFollowing the public spectacle that has ensued since the passage of the motion, Ram said Article 106 (6) “brooks no ambiguity or misunderstanding and states emphatically” what the Government should do. He noted that there are rules of interpretation of all statutes, of which the Constitution sits at the pinnacle. One foundational rule states that “The only safe and correct way of construing statutes is to apply the plain meaning of the words.”He noted that what Hughes is attempting to do was already addressed by then Chancellor Keith Massiah in 1987 in the Court of Appeal case of the Attorney General vs Mohammed Alli and Others. In that case, according to Ram, Massiah referred with approval to the words of an English case that “it is a strong thing to read into an Act of Parliament words which are not there, and in the absence of clear necessity it is a wrong thing to do.”Ram reminded Hughes that he was once the Chairman a Constitutional Reform Committee hence he must know that “there are two instances in the Constitution – Article 160 (2) and Article 180 (1) – in which the word “half”, or its variant “one-half”, is used in relation to the number of elected members of the National Assembly.”“These along with Article 106 (6) are all part of the Year 2000 amendments to the Constitution and Mr Hughes must not only presume but must know that the distinction was not accidental. It was intended. In fact, Mr Hughes was the Chairman of the AFC when it brought a no-confidence motion against the Ramotar Government in 2014. I know about the AFC’s calculation of the 33-32 because then party leader Khemraj Ramjattan discussed the matter with me extensively prior to the actual motion being brought,” Ram said.Opportunistic politiesThe attorney challenged that Hughes may be attempting to “to frustrate what Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo referred to on the night of the vote as “democracy at work.”“In so doing, Mr Hughes clothes his attempt in a way more elegant but probably more dangerous than his AFC party leader Raphael Trotman sought to do during the vote in the National Assembly when he encouraged Ms Volda Lawrence to ask for a “time out” in the middle of the vote. What Trotman (a former Speaker of the House), Ms Lawrence, the vulgar (Jermaine) Figueira, and others knew when Charrandas Persaud said “yes” was that the APNU/AFC had lost the vote. Such a result triggers the resignation by the Cabinet including the President, while the Government resigns after a (new) President is sworn in following elections mandated to be held within three months,” Ram said.The political commentator said the AFC, of which both Trotman and Hughes are leaders, has not only been a disappointment rather it is a prime example of opportunistic polities. He alluded to the recently concluded November 12, 2018 Local Government Elections as the motion of no-confidence in the AFC since its performance was abysmal. Additionally, he noted that the party’s internal elections also exposed Trotman’s no-confidence in then leader Khemraj Ramjattan when he staged a secret and successful campaign to unseat him.“Collectively, the leadership of the AFC has done considerable but hopefully not permanent injustice to the concept of a third force in Guyana’s politics. To restore any decency, the leadership of the AFC must now emphatically reaffirm its position that it accepts the vote on the No-confidence Motion as a done deal to prevent the discord and confusion engendered by the crusade of its former Chairman,” Ram noted.He urged the Government to recoup advising that if they intend to move to the courts to challenge the House’s decision then “duplicity and dishonesty will triumph over democracy and decency” noting that Persaud would be hailed for exposing this with his yes vote.Political maturityMeanwhile, the Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC) issued a call for the toning down of the rhetoric and for sobriety and wisdom to inform the discourse as to how the nation proceeds at this crucial juncture in its history. It noted that “Strict constitutional adherence must guide us as this time. So in the event election is not held within the stipulated three months period, following a no-confidence motion, the Constitution dictates a course of action.”Additionally, the GTUC called for the other coalition partners to have a seat at the table when President David Granger, upon his return from Cuba, decides to meet with Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo. They also said that other stakeholders in civic society inclusive of the trade union movement, the Private Sector, and religious representatives be invited to subsequent engagements on the way forward.last_img read more

Hiring more vets would aid animals

first_imgBut responsibility here lies, ultimately, with Villaraigosa, who hired Boks without doing proper due diligence, and who continues to hang onto him now. The problem for Villaraigosa is that firing Boks would mean admitting failure, which is hard to do when you’re running for governor or even vice president. The mayor can only make things better by accepting responsibility, and hiring a shelter GM who knows how to attract and keep the 12 vets LAAS is supposed to have instead of the mere two it has now. Daniel Guss is a Sherman Oaks-based writer who founded the organization Stop Torture, Abuse & Neglect of Dogs; www.STANDFoundation.org.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LOS Angeles city’s chief animal-shelter veterinarian resigned last week, leaving only two vets on a staff that’s funded for 12. Worse yet, the two remaining vets have virtually no experience running major, urban animal shelters. When Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa hired Ed Boks to run Los Angeles animal shelters, the problem was already at a crisis level, with only three vets on staff – a 75 percent vacancy rate that was worse than any other shelter in Southern California. Now, with the loss of Dr. Katie Rainey, the vacancy rate worsens to a cruel 84 percent. Shelter visitors gravitate to dogs, cats and rabbits who are happy and friendly. But without proper veterinary care, easily treatable infections spread like wildfire in the close confines of shelter kennels. Moreover, when animals are sick, aggression grows and dog fights, injury and a pall of sadness are cast over the kennels. And nothing turns off shelter visitors more than sick, untreated and fight-battered animals. With more vets, L.A.’s shelter animals would be healthier, happier and less aggressive – the qualities that adopting families look for. This is why some people run to pet stores and breeders: The sadness of the shelters is too much to bear. A lack of vets means a sick, sad shelter experience. And when fewer pets get adopted from shelters, more end up getting killed. Thousands of pets in L.A. shelters are killed each year, a problem Boks was hired to correct. The irony here is that the lack of vets exacerbates these conditions. Hire more vets and the animals are happier, healthier and show better. Fewer vets is the reason we have the current doomsday situation. So why doesn’t Boks simply hire the vets for which his department is already funded? There are two reasons. First is that Boks has failed to bring salaries for shelter vets up to market levels. This, despite having a $22 million budget at his disposal. Second is that because Boks’ Los Angeles Animal Services has done such a poor job of placing pets into wanting homes, it’s an unappealing work environment for people who, as a class, have dedicated their careers to helping animals. The result is a cycle of suffering: Vets don’t want to come to LAAS because the animals there are so poorly cared for; and the animals are poorly cared for because there aren’t enough veterinarians on hand. Like a baseball free agent, Boks has to show these professionals the money and a plan to win. If he had such moxie, we’d have more vets. last_img read more

Corn not only veggie fuel at cars’ salad bar

first_imgOJAI VALLEY – A diesel mechanic for years, Joel Woolf was preparing a speech about his job when he brushed up on the history of diesel engines and learned they ran on peanut oil when first introduced at the 1900 World’s Fair. Intrigued, Woolf started testing vegetable oil as fuel with engines in his own backyard. He and his wife, Rebecca, were astounded when they discovered that the liquid easily worked as an alternative to diesel fuel. “It was an awakening. It gave me options,” said Rebecca Woolf, who with her husband now runs Veg Powered Systems, which converts diesel engines to run on recycled vegetable oil. “It’s about not waiting for big companies or government to hand us answers. It’s about individuals seeking answers.” For now, with many motorists weary of high gas prices, some have begun bucking the mainstream and trying alternatives – everything from hybrids to experimental fuels made from cashew nuts, sunflower seeds or algae. “We are in a transition. We don’t know where we’re going to go,” said Jack Kyser, chief economist for the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. “We’re not there yet. We haven’t found the answer.” Politics get in way The quandary remains, even more than three decades after the energy crisis in the 1970s pushed scientists to find new fuel sources to reduce the country’s dependence on foreign oil. While there has been little room for such alternatives to seriously evolve in a country so heavily reliant on oil, in recent years the oil industry has felt growing pressure as its refineries age. The 143 major U.S. refineries can handle a collective 17 million barrels of crude oil a day, but not a single major U.S. refinery has been built since 1976, and there are no plans for any – largely because of public opposition and the $3 billion start-up cost. To compensate, oil companies are bolstering their existing refineries, said Ray Connolly, a spokesman for the American Petroleum Institute. “The industry has expanded refinery capacity at existing refineries, and that has reduced the need to build more,” he said. “It’s not as if nothing’s happening.” But public officials are slowly making some room for alternative fuels. President George W. Bush has set a goal of replacing 15 percent of domestic gasoline with biofuels – ethanol and biodiesel – during the next decade. Congress is considering measures to increase alternative fuel production to 36 billion gallons annually – up from less than 6billion gallons now. And in January, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a law to reduce carbon by at least 10percent in transportation fuels by 2020. He’s also pushing to develop a hydrogen-fueling infrastructure in the state that would support hydrogen fuel-cell cars. The calls for alternative fuels have kicked off lobbying wars among industries vying for a shot to dominate an emerging market. But so far, larger, wealthier groups are leading the way in an increasingly politicized landscape. “The whole debate over alternative energy has been so skewed by special interests that people are not fully informed of what’s economically feasible,” said George Huang, an economist for the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. Midwestern farmers, for example, say ethanol can save the day. But with one acre of corn producing just 18 gallons of gasoline, it would take tons of corn to feed America’s demand for fuel. Still, politicians looking for votes from the middle of the country defend ethanol and are fighting to keep corn heavily involved in the national conversation about alternative fuels. “We’re so focused on corn, and it’s such a bad source that it’s displacing a lot of money we could devote to other alternative fuels,” Huang said. The Woolfs have learned this the hard way since 2003. Diesel-electric cars that run on vegetable oil could be the wave of the future, they said. But they are dismayed as their voice gets overrun by others with more political clout. “Right now, it’s whoever has the most money. That’s the technology that gets out there,” Rebecca Woolf said. But despite the problems, alternative fuels are gradually gaining ground with consumers and some businesses. More than 75 million gallons of biodiesel – a fuel produced from oil or fats – was sold in 2005, up from just 500,000 gallons in 1999, according to the National Biodiesel Board. About 400 major U.S. fleets are filling up with biodiesel, and more than 500 retail filling stations are offering it to the general public. Biodiesel catches on To spread the word about biodiesel, Colette Brooks of Malibu set up a trailer in Marina del Rey to serve as a filling station for customers who bought diesel cars from her Earth-friendly car-finder service, Biobling. Brooks hoped it would show local gasoline businesses the profitable market for biodiesel. And it worked. Within 20 days, a gas station in Pacific Palisades began selling it. Then another in Marina del Rey. Then one in Brentwood. So Brooks moved her trailer to Echo Park and hopes to spread the word there before coming to Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley. “This is by the people, for the people,” said Brooks, who considers even her hybrid a gas-guzzler. “I would wish nothing more than oil and gas people come to the party.” Annalloyd Thomason, executive director of the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Institute, shares a similar dream and wants to see big companies buy out and invest in the alternative-fuels industry. For years, the Las Vegas-based institute has specialized in market development and use of alternative fuels such as compressed natural gas for fleets. More than 130,000 vehicles on U.S. roads use compressed natural gas – including buses in the Los Angeles Metro fleet – and nationwide there are about 767 compressed-natural-gas stations. Thomason said the alternative- fuel market is modest but growing, as global oil supplies get tighter and greenhouse-gas emissions remain part of a global debate. She said large companies are keeping an eye on alternative- fuel businesses and will not get involved until there’s a sustainable and profitable market. “I’m waiting for the day we get bought out by the big companies. I guess that’s the way of capitalism,” Thomason said. “They’ll come in after we’ve done all the heavy lifting.” sue.doyle@dailynews.com (818) 713-3746160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Whether corn, soy, vegetable oil or animal fats, alternative fuels are emerging as small but competitive rivals to traditional gasoline. And they’re also growing in popularity among consumers as oil prices have fluctuated for months. In recent days, for example, oil prices have set several new records over $80, sending gasoline prices zipping upward again toward $3 a gallon. Standing strong on principle, these grass-roots alternative-fuel businesses are gaining a sort of “flower power” appeal in the field of new fuel sources. But it remains to be seen whether any will ever fully triumph over the rich and powerful oil industry – either with investments or emerging as major market players. “When these companies start to be bought up, then we’ll know they’ve arrived,” said Bob Stern, president of the nonpartisan Center for Governmental Studies in Los Angeles. He predicts that petroleum companies will continue to monitor alternative-fuel businesses to keep up with the emerging technologies and potentially snap up any promising ones. “The hope is they would invest in them,” he said. “But the fear is that they would fold them.” last_img read more

‘Sergio Busquets would be PERFECT for Manchester City’, says Dietmar Hamann

first_img Sergio Busquets 1 Dietmar Hamann believes Sergio Busquets would be an ideal signing for Manchester City.The defensive midfielder has indicated he be could tempted to follow his former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola to the Etihad in the summer.The 27-year-old has won every major honour in the game with Barca and Spain, and Hamann says he is exactly the type of player City need to progress.Speaking on the Colin Murray show, the former City midfielder said: “Luis Enrique came out saying that he is the best midfielder around. I’m not sure I would go that far but in that holding role, as a hugely underrated and undervalued player he has done fantastic things.“I wasn’t too sure a few years ago when he came into the team. But what he has done for Spain, what he has done for Barcelona, he has been fantastic and I think he would improve that City team no end.“They have got so much attacking power, they need someone to sit in front of that back four and he would be a perfect fit.”last_img read more
