Islam

ISLAM What is Islam?

Islam is a complete way of life based on the teachings of the Holy Quran (which is the
divine word of God) and Hadith which are the recorded teachings and practices of
i                Islam’s final prophet, Mohammad. Anything outside these sources is not Islam.

What does Islam mean?

Islam means peace and total submission and obedience to Allah (God).

What does Allah mean?

The word ALLAH is an Arabic term which means the one and only God who is the ^-/ creator and provider of everything. The word Allah is also the personal name of God. It is a unique term because it does not have a plural and it is neither a male or female term since Allah is genderless. It is therefore a more accurate term to use than the term God.

What Is a Muslim?

A Muslim is a person who believes in the Islamic creed.

What are the five pillars of ISLAM?                                                          What do Muslims believe in?

\^

1.  The first pillar of Islam is the                                                                    1.  The oneness of God (Allah)
declaration of faith.

2.  The angels of Allah

2.  The second pillar of Islam is the

five compulsory daily prayers.                                                                     3.  The books of Allah

3.  The third pillar of Islam is known                                                               4. The messengers of Allah as zakat, which is annual alms.

5.  Predestination

4.  The fourth pillar of Islam is fasting during the month of Ramadan.   6.  Life after death.

5.  The fifth pillar of Islam is the                                                                     7.  The day of resurrection
pilgrimage to the Holy City of
Mecca.                                                                                                                8.  The day of judgement

What is the difference between the teachings of Islam and the practices of some Muslims?

Not every Muslim who claims to be a follower of Islam follows Islam in its pure form. A religion should therefore be judged by its teachings and not by people who claim to be its followers.

Advacy for Brunai with Asia Pacific Region Committee encouragement.

Being a member of Girl Guides you are not only given the opportunity of having a voice but shown how to as well as encouraged to use it.  this happens through out all the levels of Girl Guides.  you may be new, or in Australia only five, or be a Patrol Leader, a seconder, or have a job to do.  However everything you want to do needs to be communicated with so that others may know what it is and were you want to end up.

Remember the little Australian Brownie Guide who even small had a strong line of communication and great advocacy people.  She asked a question that people did not know the answer of and people wanted to find out the answer too.

Have a look at what has occurred on an international level with Brunai becoming a full member of Girl Guides.  A further challenge was to then get the Leaders working towards being on the international committees such as the Asia Pacific Region.

different table setting to create for meals

At times we have created ourselves, or sat at professionally done table settings for different events.

These events have been at :

  • buffet meals,
  • formal table settings,
  • Japanese table settings,
  • finger food
  • smorgess board
  • hostessing by the plate and requesting refreshment types.
  • picnics formal or impromtue,
  • around campfires
  • sitting on the ground at camp

There are basic Guide traditions and ettiquete that we have shown all the Guides over time. As the Guides learn one thing another is shown. From making the table settings to suit the occasion, to how to eat, pass food, cut meat, handle knives and forks, use fingers, wash hands, communicate, basic table manners, to hosting, serving and doing the dishes.

More international things

Samar wants more international participation things.  I know she was looking at doing something for Thinking Day.  Since I have a day off (I HOPE as it is about then we have the long haul Melbourne trips!! for overseas students) I should be able to get her at least to Burnett Park.

The more we get together

The more we get together is a song that was sung in 2005 at a camp fire. very soon after wards as part of the Achieve : Leadership part 2 this song was one of a few taught over a a month at Guides in preparation for a short campfire.

The more we get together, together, together,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends,
And my friends are your friends,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.

The more we get together, together, together,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.
For you know that I know,
And I know that you know,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.
