zakat is the giving of a fixed portion of one's wealth to charity, generally to the poor and needy. zakat is considered to be a religious duty, and is expected to be paid by all practicing Muslims who have the financial means. in addition to their zakat obligations, muslims are encouraged to make voluntary contributions (sadaqah)

the zakat is not collected from non-Muslims, although they are sometimes required to pay the jizyah (tax)

zakat promotes a more equitable redistribution of wealth and fosters a sense of solidarity amongst members of the ummah. tax aint meant for muslims in the principles of islamic jurisprudence

zakat may not be given to descendents of the prophet Muhammad s.a.w., nor may it be given to parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren, or spouses. It is also forbidden to disburse zakat funds to organizations that pay salaries to their employees, or use the money for investments

Allahuma Solli Ala Syedina Muhammad wa Ala Alli Muhammad

tax is considered an abetment (subahat) & hence berkah (absolute blessing) will be diminishing truly... any medium/instrument/forms of tax should not be practiced in muslim's world as the unseen punishment from Allah Rabbul Izzati would come to reality

who is accountable to a child due to our subahat?

sensational scenario..

most of the muslims throughout the universe have forgotten the REAL teachings of Prophet Muhammad Rasulullah SAW. spiritually (kerohanian), tax aint the best way to gain revenue, should we witness it in a different angle i.e. islamic perspective (burden would come to ummah plus the country)

very peaceful for fishing & living...

ya allah ya rahman ya rahim.. we do not want our children to share the burden due to the tax's subahat & the greed-development from unislamic ways of proceeds (revenues)

ramadan kareem is a greeting in the arabic language that is used to wish happiness during the start of the holy month of ramadan. the word kareem means generous or bountiful in the arabic language

are those your siblings in pain? kids know nothing about the sins made by numerous block minded evil's vision of human beings

doomsday effect... who want to register for free & be a good citizen in that beautiful and lovely paradise for subahat's manners? (ini lah kenikmatan yang pasti diterima waktu hari pembicaran nanti bagi warga subahat dalam segala hal, fikirkan KESAN mendatang sebelum membuat perkara merugikan mu, wahai umat akhir zaman..)

1 ramadan 1432

ramadan is the 9th month of islamic calender (month of fasting from dawn to sunset), muslims are refrain from eating & drinking (to avoid obscene and irreligious sights and sounds /purity of both thoughts and actions is important), it's intended to teach about patience, self-discipline, self-control, humility, spiritually, sacrifice, empathy for those who are less fortunate; thus encouraging actions of generosity and charity (zakat)

in addition to fasting, muslims are encouraged to read the entire Qur'an. some muslims perform the recitation of the entire Qur'an by means of special prayers, called tarawih

dates get digested very easily, they are used for supplying quick energy and repairing waste, effective in preventing abdominal cancer, help in the growth of friendly bacteria in the intestines, an excellent cure for intestinal disturbances, good for those who have a weak heart & have a tonic effect for the functional-disorders...

seeing double -the kingfisher produced a perfect mirror
image when it dived headfirst into the river

heading for the water!

silky diver...

feeding time...

barely causes a ripple as he dives into the water

kingfishers are generally shy birds, but in spite of this they feature heavily in human culture, generally due to their bright plumage or in some species interesting behavior. the sacred kingfisher, along with other pacific kingfishers, was venerated by the polynesians, who believed it had control over the seas and waves

it's extinct in singapore... the banded kingfisher (tree kingfisher) found in the lowland tropical forests of myanmar, thailand, cambodia, vietnam, laos, malaysia, indonesia, phlippines & brunei darussalam (asean countries)

for the dusun people of borneo, the oriental dwarf kingfisher is considered a bad omen and warriors that see one on the way to battle should return home

another bornean tribe consider the banded kingfisher an omen bird, albeit generally a good omen. halcyon, which gives its name to the family halcyonidae, is a mythical bird similar to the kingfisher

i'm the kingfisher bird... lets fish!
