April Fool

 

Most of us celebrate April fool day every year and fool each other. But how many of us know the bitter facts hidden behind it. It was around a thousand Years ago that Muslims ruled Spain. And the Muslim power in Spain was so Strong that it couldn't be destroyed. The Christians of the west wished to wipe out Islam from all parts of the world and they did succeed to quite an Extent. But when they tried to eliminate Islam in Spain and conquer it, they failed. They tried several times but never succeeded. The unbelievers then sent their spies in Spain to study the Muslims there and find out what was the power they possessed and they found that their power was TAQWA. The Muslims of Spain were not just Muslims but they were practicing Muslims.

They not only read the Quran but also acted upon it. When the Christians found the power of the Muslims they started thinking of strategies to break this power. So they started sending alcohol and cigarettes to Spain free of Cost. This technique of the west worked out and it started weakening the faith of the Muslims in particular the young generation of Spain. The result was that the Catholics of the west wiped out Islam and conquered the entire Spain bringing an end to the EIGHT HUNDRED LONG YEARS' RULE OF THE MUSLIMS in Spain. The last fort of the Muslims to fall was Grenada (Gharnatah), which was on the 1st of April. From that year onwards, every year they celebrate April fools day on the 1stof April, celebrating the day, they made a fool of the Muslims. They did not make a fool of the Muslim army at Gharnatah only, but of the whole Muslim Ummah. The unbelievers fooled us, the Muslims. They have a reason to celebrate April fool day, to keep up the spirit. Dear brothers and sisters, when we join in this celebration, we do so out of ignorance. If we had known about it, we would never have celebrated our own downfall. So now, that we are aware of it, and now

Let us promise that we shall never celebrate this day. We should learn

Our lesson from the people of Spain, and shall try to become practicing

Muslims, never to let anybody weaken our faith. Please forward this message to as many people you know. The more people you forward it to the greater will be the reward from your Lord in this world and the hereafter. Please try to do it before the 1st of April, to create awareness that

 

WE ARE NOT FOOLS ANYMORE

MAY Allah BLESS YOU ALL

Never really heard that one before, umm do you really believe that?

 

Are you sure it's not celebrated because of Pope Gregory XIII and the Gregorian Calendar?

 

Oh, did you also know that these salafis/wahabis a.k.a no madhabis (la madhabis) all kicked off because of British spies? Check up on it, you'll be amazed. Then they say they're the "rightly guided". :D

I'm not judging anyone. I'm just narrating a few other things which the British spies have done. If you don't beleive me, go look it up.

 

There's no need for anyone to argue about it, why should we.

 

I'm sorry you find it offending, I find it quite hillarious. Maybe once you've read about it, you'll feel the same.

 

And just to add, that is not about sects is it? I'm not posting anything sect related am I? If that is, then there's loads of other places where sects are mentioned and not yet edited.

MuslimBro, I hate to say this, but that is 100% false!

 

Unlike most of the other nonfoolish holidays, the history of April Fool's Day, sometimes called All Fool's Day, is not totally clear. There really wasn't a "first April Fool's Day" that can be pinpointed on the calendar. Some believe it sort of evolved simultaneously in several cultures at the same time, from celebrations involving the first day of spring.

 

The closest point in time that can be identified as the beginning of this tradition was in 1582, in France. Prior to that year, the new year was celebrated for eight days, beginning on March 25. The celebration culminated on April 1. With the reform of the calendar under Charles IX, the Gregorian Calendar was introduced, and New Year's Day was moved to January 1.

 

However, communications being what they were in the days when news traveled by foot, many people did not receive the news for several years. Others, the more obstinate crowd, refused to accept the new calendar and continued to celebrate the new year on April 1. These backward folk were labeled as "fools" by the general populace. They were subject to some ridicule, and were often sent on "fools errands" or were made the butt of other practical jokes.

April fool

 

But with regard to “April Fool� (in Arabic, Kidhbat Neesaan or the lies of April), the origin of this lying is not known for sure. There are differing opinions concerning that:

 

Some of them said that it developed from the celebrations of spring at the equinox on March 21.

 

Some of them said that this innovation appeared in France in 1564 CE, after the introduction of a new calendar, when a person who had refused to accept the new calendar became the victim of some people who had subjected him to embarrassment and made fun of him, so he became a laughing-stock for others.

 

Some of them said that this innovation goes back to ancient times and the pagan celebrations connected to a specific date at the beginning of spring, so this is the remnant of pagan rituals. It was said that hunting in some countries was unsuccessful during the first days of the hunt in some countries. This was the origin of these lies which are made up on the first day of April.

 

Le poisson d’avril

 

The Europeans call “April Fool� le poisson d’avril (lit. “April fish�). The reason for this is that the sun moves from the zodiacal house of Pisces to the next house, or because the word poisson, which means fish, is a distortion of the word passion, which means suffering, “so it is a symbol of the suffering endured by Jesus (peace be upon him), according to the claims of the Christians, and they claim that this happened in the first week of April.

 

Some of the kuffaar call this day All Fools’ Day, as it is known to the English. That is because of the lies that they tell so that those who hear them might believe them and thus become a victim for those who are making fun of him.

 

The first mention of April Fool in the English language was in a magazine known as Dreck Magazine. On the second day of April in 1698 CE, this magazine mentioned that a number of people were invited to come and watch the washing of black people in the Tower of London on the morning of the first day of April.

 

One of the most famous incidents that happened in Europe on April 1st was when the English newspaper, the Evening Star, announced in March 1746 CE that the following day – April 1st – that there would be an parade of donkeys in Islington, in England. The people rushed to see these animals and there was a huge crowd. They continued waiting and when they got tired of waiting, they asked about when the parade would be. They not find anything, then they knew that they had come to make an exhibition of themselves, as if they were the donkeys!

 

‘Aasim ibn ‘Abd-Allaah al-Qurawayti

 

One of them wrote about the origin of these lies, saying:

 

Many of us celebrate what is known as April fool or, if it is translated literally, the “trick of April�. But how much do we know of the bitter secret behind this day?

 

When the Muslims ruled Spain, approximately one thousand years ago, they were a force that could not be destroyed. The western Christians wished that they could wipe Islam from the face of the earth, and they succeeded to some extent.

 

They tried to limit the spread of Islam in Spain and to put an end to it, but they did not succeed. They tried numerous times and never succeeded.

 

After that, the kuffaar sent their spies to Spain to study and find out the secret of the Muslims’ strength which could not be defeated. They discovered that adhering to taqwa (piety or consciousness of Allaah) was the reason.

 

When the Christians discovered the secret of the Muslims’ strength, they started to think of strategies to break this strength. On this basis they began to send wine and cigars to Spain for free.

 

This tactic on the part of the west produced results, and the faith of the Muslims began to weaken, especially among the young generation in Spain. The result of that was that the western Catholic Christians subdued the whole of Spain and put an end to the Muslim rule of that land which had lasted for more than eight hundred years. The last stronghold of the Muslims, in Grenada, fell on April 1st, hence they considered this to be the “trick of April.�

 

From that year until the present, they celebrate this day and consider the Muslims to be fools. They do not regard only the army at Granada to be fools who are easily deceived, rather they apply that to the entire Muslim ummah. It is ignorant of us to join in these celebrations, and when we imitate them blindly in implementing this evil idea, this is a kind of blind imitation which confirms the foolishness of some of us in following them. Once we know the reason for this celebration, how can we celebrate our defeat?

 

After knowing this reality,let us make a promise to ourselves never to celebrate this day. We have to learn from the Spanish and adhere to the reality of Islam and never allow our faith to be weakened again.

 

I say: it does not matter what the origins of April fool are. What matters more is knowing the ruling on lying on this day, which we are sure did not exist during the first and best generations of Islam. It did not come from the Muslims, but rather from their enemies.

 

The things that happen on April fools’ day are many. Some people have been told that their child or spouse or someone who is dear to them has died, and unable to bear this shock, they have died. Some have been told that they are being laid off, or that there has been a fire or an accident in which their family has been killed, so they suffer paralysis or heart attacks, or similar diseases.

 

Some people have been told about their wives, that they have been seen with other men, and this has led them to kill or divorce their wives.

 

These are the endless stories and incidents that we hear of, all of which are lies which are forbidden in Islam and unacceptable to common sense or honest chivalry.

 

We have seen how Islam forbids lying even in jest, and it forbids frightening a Muslim whether in seriousness or in jest, in words or in actions.

 

This is the law of Allaah in which is wisdom and care for people’s circumstances.

 

And Allaah is the Source of Strength.

The muslims lost Spain because of infighting not because of alcohol and cigarettes. There was no unity between the muslims there so they fell to the advancing Christian armies. Sometimes you had Muslims even fighting on the side of the Christians against their fellow Muslims.

iagree with tessusaiga. alcholahol and ciggies wenrt the reson for there down fall. when i studied the Islamic history fo that time period it made me sick. some muslim groups allieing wiht a kaffir king, then being betrayed then betraying the muslims then allieing theselfs with the kaffirs again.

 

ont he day granda was taken there were "tricked" though. the muslim leader of that area made a pact sortof with the king that was getting them, that he (the muslim) would leave but on a few conditons. one was that the main Masjid stay as a Masjid. what was the first thing the christions did????? yep! add a cross, made it a church. theres more to the story of course, find anygood Islamic history book, and u'll find yourself intrigued
