It's good to know that Muslims do some mad last-minute-shopping before Ramadan, just as Christians do before Christmas. :D
Perhaps it's all part of the pre-festival excitement and preparation?

In my mind, there is nothing wrong with immigration unless there actually is a malicious attempt to do a 'demographic takeover'. After all, if it had not been for the massive immigration from the subcontinent, it would have been really difficult for me to embrace Islam. Immigration also enhances the economic productivity and cultural flavour of a country, so let them all in I say!

And more Chinese in Malaysia means more potential Muslims. It's pretty hard to convert to any faith in communist China.

^ That's a valid point you gave there Fishman, and I hope you didn't misunderstand my words to think that I have anything against the Chinese, no.
What I actually meant is that the way Chinese play so many major roles in Malaysia is frightening, simply because they show such opposition towards Islam. The way they insult Islam openly and without any fear is quite worrisome. That's all I meant.

You're very OPTIMISTIC.... good!!!

Actually, while Malays are upset of so many apostates .... they dont realise that lots of Chinese and Hindus converted to Islam.....

from what I've heard, 200,000 Chinese in Malaysia embraced Islam all over the country.... i think it's kinda true.... in all mosques I've been there must be at least one chinese convert....

Hosting a dinner celebrating the holy month of Ramadan, President George W. Bush addresses ambassadors from Islamic nations and other distinguished guests in the State Room Nov. 19. "America has close and important relations with many Islamic nations So it is fitting for America to honor your friendship and the traditions of a great faith by hosting this Iftaar at the White House," said the President in his remarks. White House photo by Tina Hager.


Mariam Motala, right, prays during Ramadan services at the Islamic Center of Hawthorn, California. Although most of America’s mosques are located in large cities, more than a third of them are in rural and suburban areas.

Muslim worshippers, from left, Aminah, Shakera, Naima, Rabiyyah and her 11-year-old daughter Tanzila, have a small meal as they break their fast at the end of the first day of the holy month of Ramadan at the Islamic Cultural Center of New York, the largest mosque in the city. Recent studies of the ethnic ancestry of Muslims in North America show the rich diversity of Muslim communities across the United States, with immigrants from the Middle East, South Asia, Africa, Iran, the Balkans, and Turkey.

This is a very interesting topic. I enjoyed seeing the pictures that are still here because I never knew it was such a big event. Hopefully the new thread will start off with a brief description of what Ramadan is and what it means, for those who don't know much about it.
