The sighting of the New Moon on the 21st day of Sha'baan (August 21) heralded the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadan. At this time, Muslims would have completed the first days of the month-long fast in which they engage in accordance with the injunctions of the Holy Qur'an.

For the world's one billion plus Muslims, Ramadan is the month to which they look forward with eagerness and anticipation as an ongoing sign of Allah's Beneficence and Mercy, and another opportunity to earn credit in His Sight. The month of Ramadan affords the believer an annual opportunity to expiate past wrongdoing, to come closer to God through a better pattern of conduct and self-discipline, to re-establish bonds of family and friendship, to learn humility and compassion towards others and above all, use it as an opportunity for physical, moral and spiritual cleansing.

goodbye summer party run down

1) it was hot. whartscape 2007 floristree hot.

2) wild yaks and chinese stars were amazing. ty was right about CS.

3) snakes say hisss! brought a crew from philly who seemed to vanish after their set

4) CB mines that 80s thrash so well, it's like a D.R.I. emulation

5) best fwends didn't play blood.

6) juiceboxxx had what looked like a melt down on stage, but i think it was all just calculated performance

7) ninjasonik broke the stage

8) i left because 7 hours in that space was just too much for me.

You missed The Upper Crust, who blew away a packed Mercury Lounge with their latest and greatest rocque and roll tunes from Revenge For Imagined Slights. Lord Bendover, Count Bassie, L'Duc Distortion and Jackie Kickassis delivered a viciously rocking (in an aristcratic way, of courseO show that would have kicked that plebian Reznor's ass into the dungeon where he belongs. Long live Rocque and Roll!
