Saudi Arabia declares Eid Al Adha 2020 date


Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia’s Supreme Court has confirmed that Friday, July 31, will be the first day of Eid Al Adha.

The Saudi Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development has also announced the Eid Al Adha holidays for the public and private sector in the kingdom.

Public sector employees have been granted a two-week holiday starting from Sunday, July 26. They will resume work on Sunday, August 9.

Meanwhile, private sector employees are entitled to a four-day holiday starting Thursday, July 30 and ending on Sunday, August 1. They will resume work on Monday, August 3.

Saudi Arabia will allow worshippers to perform Eid Al-Adha prayers at certain mosques within the kingdom. However, worshippers will not be allowed to offer Eid prayers at open grounds this year as a result of the Covid-19 precautionary measures in place across the kingdom.

Here in the UAE, the country’s Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) had previously announced that the Eid Al Adha holidays for the public and private sectors will be from the 10th until the 12th of the Islamic month of Dhu Al Hijjah.

Those dates are likely to fall from Friday, July 31, until Sunday, August 2. However, the exact dates of the UAE holidays are yet to be announced.

Do Not Crush the Joy of Eid

Eid has a special joy. It is the joy at the bounty of Allah, His mercy and His great blessings. It is the joy at His guidance in a time when many people have strayed from the straight path.

In Eid, Muslims gather together, sensing the deep belonging to this Ummah and this religion. They rejoice at the bounty of Allah Who has guided them when many others failed to follow the straight path.

{Allah desires ease for you, not your discomfort. He desires you to fast the whole of the month, and that you may magnify Him for giving you His guidance, and that you may give thanks.} (Al-Baqarah 2:185)

What blessing could be better and bigger than being guided to Islam!

Moreover, Eid fills us with joy at the bounty of reaching Ramadan. We enjoy the success we achieved and feel grateful for the help that Allah granted us by facilitating our worship in this month.

Ramadan’s days and nights have been a season overflowing with Allah’s mercy and gifts. Muslim congregations spent the nights glorifying Allah and reciting the Qur’an. A lot of supplications were uttered; many eyes were filled with tears.

Many souls have been softened as if they were ascending to the heavens, living with angels, looking at Paradise and Hell with their very eyes.

On these days, Muslims experienced blessings and joy that no one else could feel. Such souls deserve to rejoice at being blessed by Allah with this overwhelming flow. Another source of joy is fulfillment of the fasting period and completion of the third pillar of Islam.

{Say: In the bounty of Allah and in His mercy: therein let them rejoice. It is better than what they hoard} (Yunus 10:58‏)

A Happy Day

For all the above, feeling joy and showing happiness and delight are essential elements of Eid. That is why scholars stated that showing happiness in Eid is a religious rite. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) encouraged the Muslim community to manifest happiness on this day. Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, came to Madinah and the people had two days when they would play and have fun. He said, “What are these two days?”

They said, “We used to play and have fun on these days during the Jahiliyyah (pre-Islamic period).”

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Allah has given you something better than them, the day of Adha and the day of Fitr.” (Abu Dawud)

This is evidence for the recommendation to show joy in Eid and that it is part of the Islamic Shari`ah.

Indeed, replacing the pre-Islamic Eids with these two Islamic Eids indicates that it is permissible to have fun on Eid as the people used to do during the pre-Islamic period, provided that this fun does not go against Islamic teachings.

The Prophet wanted to assert the Islamic identity and to make Muslims distinct from other peoples.

The following report emphasizes this point. `A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) narrated:

Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) came to my house while two girls were singing beside me the songs of Bu`ath (a war between Madinah’s two major tribes, the Aws and the Khazraj, before Islam).

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) lay down and turned his face to the other side. Then Abu Bakr came.

Seeing that, Abu Bakr spoke harshly to them saying, “Musical instruments of Satan in the presence of the Messenger of Allah?” But the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Leave them, Abu Bakr, for there is Eid for every nation and this is our Eid.”

Celebrating Eid

Another manifestation of joy in Eid during the Prophet’s time was the Abyssinians’ show: they gathered at the mosque and played with shields and spears. When the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) heard them, he looked at them then asked `A’ishah whether she would like to watch.

She replied in the affirmative, and the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) made her stand behind him and her cheek was touching his cheek.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) encouraged them saying, “Carry on, Banu Arfadah! Let Jews know that we have a space of relaxation in our religion.”

Here we see the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) approving and even encouraging such shows of happiness and joy.

No for Gloomy Spirit

Actually, what makes one wonder is the act of those who overlook this Prophetic guidance and try to destroy this joy and spoil Eid’s cheerful spirit. In fact, some ascetics and worshipers did so in the past out of good intention.

It was reported that when one ascetic saw some people laughing on Eid day, he said, “Assuming that their fasting was accepted, why should they act in such an unthankful way? Why do not they show anxiety and worry?”

Another ascetic was seen sad on Eid. People told him that Eid is a day of joy and happiness. He replied that he did not know whether his fasting was accepted or not.

This gloomy spirit is echoed today by some sincere people who are used to turning Eids into occasions of lamenting the Ummah’s shortcomings and tragedies, and mourning over the lost glories.

They always remind you that Salah Ad-Din (Saladin) never smiled until he succeeded in liberating Jerusalem. However, they forget that laughing and having a cheerful sense are part of Allah’s favors on His servants, and that one’s actions and behavior should be relevant to the occasion at hand.

Actually, sadness and gloominess will never be the remedy for our tragedies. The remedy needs more than that. It needs reflection and wise thinking, as well as courageous self-criticism and assessment.

Actually, rejecting the manifestations of joy, extinguishing every smile and succumbing to sadness and grief have nothing to do with liberating even hand-span of land, satisfying a hungry person, or answering any call for help.

Be Positive

The best guidance is that of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), who used to seek refuge in Allah from worry and sorrow. He was always an optimistic, smiling man. We really need to infuse the Ummah with this hopeful spirit. Eid is a ray that dispels the darks engulfing our souls and the despair strangling our hearts.

So let hope find its way into our souls. The life-span of Islam is far longer than ours; its horizons are far wider than our countries; the calamities afflicting us are not unchangeable fate.

Let’s remember that in the Battle of Al-Khandaq (the Trench), Muslims were tightly besieged in Madinah and they experienced a very critical time; yet, a few years later, they victoriously entered Makkah, their enemy’s stronghold, in one of Islam’s most glorious days.

Similarly, Baghdad collapsed under the sweeping attacks of the Tartars, but only two centuries later, Muslims took over Constantinople.

A desperate soul overwhelmed by fears and blinded by a gloomy view can never be helpful in rectifying our situation.We should not be hasty and impatient. Allah’s laws in running the universe can not be altered according to the humans’ whims or wishes.

Let’s look at the bright side and appreciate the favors Allah has bestowed on us. Just reflect on the attitude of the righteous man `Urwah ibn Az-Zubair: A serious illness afflicted his foot and he had to have it amputated. In addition, one of his sons died in an awful accident. `Urwah’s response was really amazing:

O Allah, praise and thanks are due to You. Although one of my members was taken, You still kept the others for me; and although one of my sons died, You saved the others.

We really need such inspiring hope and motivating positivism that spur endeavor and lead to achievement. A desperate soul overwhelmed by fears and blinded by a gloomy view can never be helpful in rectifying our situation. After all, we should remember that Allah is always there and that He Almighty is the Greatest.

How to Get Android P on Your Phone Right Now


Illustration for article titled How to Get Android P on Your Phone Right NowIllustration: Google

Sorry, but your brand new Android phone is already obsolete. Google unveiled the latest version of its mobile operating system earlier this week, and Android P—yes, basically an upside-down Beats logo—comes with some cool new features and a slight visual overhaul.

Here’s everything you need to know about Android P, including how to get it on your current phone right now.

What’s New in Android P?

Illustration for article titled How to Get Android P on Your Phone Right NowImage: Google

The most notable (and controversial) update arriving in Android P is notch support for all those iPhone X copycats. Developers—or Android owners who want to pretend their device is an iPhone X (or an Essential Phone)—can pick from narrow, tall, or chubby sizes for their fake notches. Just enable Developer Options within Android P and scroll down the large list of choices until you get to the Drawing section, where you’ll find the option to “simulate a display with a cutout.”

Android P also adds rounded corners to Android’s quick settings menu, as well as a few new ways users can quickly respond to message notifications. You can pick from one of Google’s “Smart replies” if you don’t have time to chat, or you can fire off a quick image directly from the notification shade.

Other changes in Android P include a new battery-saving feature that restricts idle apps from using your mic, camera, and other sensors. Google also says that Android’s autofill should now do a better job of remembering your password.

For a full rundown of features arriving in Android P, be sure to check out Google’s big introduction video:

How to Get Android P Right Now (the Official Way)

You can grab the first Android P developer preview right now, but there are a few important caveats. First, it’s limited to Google’s Pixel and Pixel 2 (regular and XL versions). This beta software is also pretty unstable. You shouldn’t try to run it on your main smartphone, but it could be worth trying on that old first-generation Pixel you have lying around somewhere.

To get started, go download the system image for Android P. There’s a different version for each Pixel phone, and you can find them all here.

Once you’ve unzipped the file and you’re ready to flash your device with Android P, things get a little complicated. Installing Android P onto your smartphone will require a good amount of work and some light coding. If you’re up for the task, follow along with Google’s instructions here. Just make sure you back up your phone first—if you need to—since flashing the new preview will erase all your old data.

How to Get Android P on Other Android Phones

If you don’t have a Pixel, but you still want to try Android P, hope isn’t entirely lost—just mostly lost. A third-party developer has created an unofficial launcher for Android P that you can use to make your smartphone look like you have the latest OS, but none of its features.

Download this APK on your Android smartphone. Once finished, tap “Install” on your device, and then press its home button. Android should ask you to pick a launcher. Select the freshly installed “Pixel launcher.” If you have a Samsung phone, you’re done. If not, you’ll have to press the home button again, reselect the new launcher, and select “Always” so it becomes the default

Finally, open Settings and select Apps or Applications (depending on your device). Tap on Pixel Launcher and then Permissions to enable access to the basic functions it needs, like your location and your smartphone’s storage.

7 Childhood Memories You Never Forget …


Childhood memories are some of the most precious keepsakes to hold dear to your heart—especially as you grow up. Sometimes you have to remind yourself how it felt to be a kid, and memories from your adolescence can help you do just that. Whether it’s remembering something that made you smile or brought out the happiest part of you, certain childhood memories just stick with you for a lifetime. Here are seven of the most common childhood memories that you may not have trouble remembering.

↓ next ↓

1. Your Favorite Stuffed Animal

Everyone had that favorite stuff animal that they just couldn’t live without. You had to have them sleeping with you at night or tagging along with you at grade school. Mine has forever been Winnie the Pooh Bear. It’s sad to say, but he’s still in my life and moves wherever I move. It’s not that I can’t let go, but he just brings a sense of comfort and reminiscence while being away from family (since he was a gift from my mother). Is this one of you childhood memories too?

↓ next ↓

2. Memorable Children’s Storybooks

What were some of the children’s stories that stood out to you the most? Mine was “The Little Engine that Could.” I remember being in kindergarten listening to my teacher read the story during circle time. As my teacher would read the best phase in the story, “I think I can,” I would shout right along with her and my classmates. It definitely became one of my favorite reads, along with many other bedtime stories.

3. Building Forts and Castles

This is one of the best childhood memories I just don’t want to let go of any time soon. Do you remember building forts, castles, or tents with chairs, sofa pillows, and sheets? My brother and I used to love to build our little home and camp out in the living room for the night. It was like our territory that no one could enter without our permission. Now that I’m older, I wish I were small enough to fit in one of these fortresses.

4. Watching Your Favorite Cartoon

Who doesn’t remember their favorite cartoon or kids show? I had several. For starters, I loved Rugrats and pretty much admired Angelica (don’t ask why). Doug and Hey Arnold are also on my list. I remember a Doug rerun marathon came on Nickelodeon one year and it just threw me back in time. TV shows of today will never match up to what the ’90s kids grew up on—but I’m sure every generation thinks the same about their childhood cartoons.

5. Your First Crush

If you didn’t have a little crush on someone as a young kid, you’re just lying! I will admit that my first crush was in second grade. I didn’t quite understand it then, but I just remember being completely intrigued by this boy who would sit next to me at lunchtime just to pull on my pigtails. Of course I tried to make myself believe that I disliked him, but in reality, I actually had a crush on him.

6. Your Parents’ Favorite Music

Music is just one of those things that sticks with you at any age. For most of us, I’m sure we can remember a song that our parents played a lot. One of the songs that I usually pull out of my memory bank when I’m reminiscing is “I Love Your Smile” by Shanice. However, for the most part, my parents played a lot of gospel music around the house. Now when I hear a particular song, I immediately have a flashback to hearing the same song as a child.

7. Playing with Friends outside

This is one of those memories you will NEVER be able to remove from your mind. I was one of those kids who loved to read, write, and stay in the room playing with Barbie dolls. My mother used to force me to go out and play (what mother didn’t?), so you can believe that this was devastating for me. Yet, once I got outside I realized how much I was missing out. Hide-and-seek, Tag, and Red Light Green Light were just a few games I vividly remember playing with my friends.

I so wish I could step back in time and relive these carefree moments again, but life unfortunately doesn’t work that way. Now that all of us are adults or growing into young adults, we can make sure that we create some of the best memories possible for our children to hold on to as they grow up. What are some other childhood memories that are unforgettable?

Entertainment News: This Eid, no Salman Khan film at Box Office due to coronavirus COVID-19

New Delhi: The deadly novel coronavirus outbreak changed the world, quite literally! From hugs, handshakes to masks, sanitisers and a mandatory ‘namaste’ – we have come a long way. Like several other businesses, the movie and television industry too, has been badly hit by the lockdown as viewers lost the charm of watching the 70 mm magic. 

With Eid around the corner, this year is an exception when superstar Salman Khan is not having any release. Also, it once happened in 2013 when he had no Eid release for fans. However, from 2010 to 2019, barring 2013, Sallu Bhai had a successful Eid release, entertaining his fans for years. 

Noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared details of Salman’s Eid releases and first-day opening Box Office collection over the years from 2010-2019. Take a look:

Before COVID-19 scare hit the world, Salman Khan’s upcoming film ‘Radhe’ and Akshay Kumar’s ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ were touted as the big titans clashing on Eid, this year. However, it has been averted due to the pandemic rise and shutdown of cinema halls.

Looking at the current scenario, several filmmakers have opted for OTT digital release of their movies like ‘Ghoomketu’, ‘Gulabo Sitabo’, ‘Shakuntala Devi biopic’ in Bollywood and Ponmagal Vandha, Penguin, Sufiyum Sujatayum, Law and “French Biryani in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada languages.

Eid al-Adha 2020 sees many films not releasing in cinemas due to pandemic

This Eid al-Adha cinema season, one of the most important seasons for film screenings throughout the year, emerges in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic which shuttered theaters across the country that are only now returning to life a capacity limit of 25 percent.

Producers did not find this new occupancy limit attractive enough for new releases, with only one film announced to be screening in theaters this Eid: “al-Ghassala” (The Washing Machine), according to the director of a distribution company Safwat al-Helbawy.

Starring Ahmed Hatem, Hana al-Zahid, Mahmoud Hamida, Mohamed Salam, Bayoumi Fouad, Ahmed Fathy, and Taher Abolila, the movie is written by Adel Salib, directed by Essam Abdel Hamid, and produced by Synergy Films, New Century and Misr International Films.

Speaking to Al-Masry Al-Youm, Helbawy explained that in light of the 25 percent capacity limit, producers expect this Eid film season to only return profits if one or two films are screened.

This means that several newly finished movies will not be screening in cinemas.

These include “Awdet al-Aref” (The Return of the Knower) starring Ahmed Ezz, “al-Ankabout” (The Spider) starring Ahmed al-Sakka, which was postponed to 2021, as well as “al-Baad La Yazhab lel Maazoun Maretain” (Some Do Not Go to the Marriage Registrar Twice) starring Karim Abdel Aziz.

And screening dates remain unannounced for “Zenzana Seven” (Cell Seven) starring Ahmed Zahir and Nidal al-Shafei, “Shereet Six” starring Khaled al-Sawy, “Mousa” starring Karim Mahmoud Abdel Aziz, and “Al-Harith” starring Ahmed al-Fishawy and Yasmin Raees.

Another distribution company director, Hassan Abdel Fattah, told Al-Masry Al-Youm that the film “Saheb al-Maqam” starring Yousra and Asser Yassin will only debut through electronic platforms this season.

He added that the movie “Tawaam Roahy” (My Spiritual Twin) will not be shown in cinemas due to a lack of agreement on when it would be screened across the Arab world.

Films already being screened before cinemas were shuttered, such as “al-Flous” (The Money), “Les Baghdad” (Baghdad Thief), “Ras al-Sana” (New Year’s), and “Banat Thanawy” (Secondary School Girls), will be screened if no new films are released this Eid, Abdel Fattah explained.
