Why are all my Muslim colleagues acting so weird?

Are your Muslim colleagues and employees acting a little weird the past 20 days?

  • Every time you pass their pc, you find them staring at the Nando’s homepage.
  • When you open your packet of slap chips, you can see how liss the person is because is literally drowning is in his own drool.
  • Every minute that goes pass, your muslim colleague keeps asking what’s the time? Everyone sitting around is so use to question that before he can ask the time, the whole department in chorus tells the time as the minutes change. It almost feels like you working for 1026 “when you hear the beep, it will be 14h00 and 20seconds”.
  • When you go for a smoke break, your smoking muslim buddie stalks you, he is not puffing away as usual but standing very close to you and is really invading your personal space.
  • When your Muslim colleague thinks no one is looking, he takes 40 winks, before you know it the whole floor is vibrating because the snoring is so loud.
  • Your muslim colleague arrives at the crack of dawn and leaves before sunset. Even on a Friday.
  • Everyday before you muslim colleague leaves his head is pinned against the window and he keeps asking you, “can you see it?” you reply ”what?” he says “the new moon”.

Ramadan has sprung on us the same time as spring this year. Saum/Fasting is a unique moral and spiritual characteristic of Islam. Fasting means to abstain “completely” from foods, drinks, intimate intercourse and smoking, before the break of the dawn till sunset during the entire month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic year. In the evening additional prayer is performed. Fasting in Ramadan is obligatory on every responsible and fit Muslim. . This is a pillar of Islam, and any failure to observe it without reasonable excuses is a grave sin in the sight of God. Muslims wake up at pre dawn (about 4:30am) and have suhur which is a very early breakfast. The whole routine of a muslim person changes drastically during this month. Their sleep routine, eating patterns, literally change overnight. The body, mind and soul are tested and trained so that the person can practice self restraint.

The Quran(Muslim holy book) was revealed on The Night of Power/Laylatul Qadr in this month. There is great emphasis placed on reciting as much Quran as possible during this month.

The only obligatory fasting is that of Ramadan – which may be 29 or 30 days, depending on the moon’s positions. Ramadan ends with the holiday Eid ul-Fitr, on which feasts are held. Eid ul-Fitr starts the day after Ramadan ends, and is verified by the sighting of the new moon. Muslims give money to the poor and wear their best clothes.

NANIMA’S SOUTH AFRICAN POWER CRISIS SOLUTION


This is a shot in the dark, no pun intended. Here goes.. ten marks for creativity. DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME IN CAPE TOWN. Why doesn’t the Western Cape put their clocks 2 hours back? For e.g. if it is 08h00 here in Johannesburg it is only 06h00 in Cape Town and if it is 20h00 in Johannesburg it is only 18h00 in Cape Town. How will this solve the problem? It will balance the load during the peak times in the mornings and the evenings. Why should Cape Town do this and not Jozi? The sun sets so late in Cape Town, they are layed back there, they deserve to be in another time zone. Come Kaapenaartjies, do it for your country. If the Europeans can adapt to Daylight savings time anyone can. We can call it POWER SAVING TIME. What do you think?

Yes, Cape Town Agree or No way Jozi
