Four men arrested for eating during fasting hours

Four men have been arrested after being caught eating in daylight hours during Ramadan, the holy month of fasting.

Police Sub-Inspector Ahmed Shiyam said that two cases had been reported to police and four people had been arrested.

Sergeant Abdul Muhsin said two of the men were arrested near the Alimas Carnival stage last Saturday and taken to the police station, where they confessed they had eaten.

“They were released after making a statement and were given advice,’’ he said.

The other two men were arrested inside Giyasuddeen School, Sergeant Muhsin said.

“They also confessed they had eaten in the school toilets,” he said. “They have both been released now.”

Last year a man was arrested for eating in daytime during Ramadan and was sent to the Criminal Court by Prosecutor General’s office.

The Criminal Court fined the man Rf 500 and ordered to reinstate that day’s fast.

    Says:"I also see Bismuth still hasn’t recovered from that thrashing in that other topic. Defeated so horribly, he has become enthralled, and just can’t help but advertise my name."

    Oh! I see, you defeated someone? really.. well , congratulations!

    Says:"Perhaps I was too harsh on the poor boy?."

    What else, can anyone expect from a guy like you 🙂 , ...actually can I correct you if you had forgotten as usual.

    You should have written "Perhaps I was exposing my delusional disorder, arrogance, inability to comprehend my own words, and all that because of my worsening amnesia on the other post"

    That would makes perfect sense... more correct!

    have a wonderful time, have fun...

  4. Whoever lives in a land in which the sun does not set during the summer and does not rise during the winter, or who lives in a land in which the day lasts for six months and the night lasts for six months, for example, has to perform the five daily prayers in each twenty-four hour period. They should estimate their times based on the nearest country in which the times of the five daily prayers can be distinguished from one another, because it was proven in the hadeeth of the Isra’ and Mi’raaj (Prophet’s Night Journey and Ascent into Heaven) that Allaah enjoined on this ummah fifty prayers each day and night, then the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) kept asking his Lord to reduce it until He said, “O Muhammad, they are five prayers each day and night, and for each prayer will be the reward of ten, that is fifty prayers…”

    @ shaz: thanks for giving the answer through the link! 😀 i hope surumuth (who lives in the very north on this earth) understands.. plus, sun SATS nowhere dude! it sets!

  5. Well, I understand that judging does not fall unto me - and so, I apologize for telling you the verdict before allowing you to see it from the source.

    So, without further ado, here is your verdict.

    Say what you will, but I don't think it'll help people see you in a better light.

    Here's a hint; stop making things up and taking your lies as facts... and MAYBE you just might win next time.
