Lance: Wow, can you guys believe that tomorrow is going to be a national holiday? Tomorrow, aka, the birth of our lord and savior, Hunk the Hunk?
Hunk: Lance, please, you don’t have to do this every y-
Hey, guys, I can’t believe that tomorrow, January 13th, will be the day our sins are forgiven and our crops are blessed? Can you believe that tomorrow we all finally become good people? Can you guys believe that tomorrow is Hunk Day? The holiest day of the year? Isn’t that amazing. Isn’t that amazing.
Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the Jewish year, and the way we are closest to G-d. It’s the day of atonement, “for on this day He will forgive you, purify you, that you be cleansed from all your sins before G-d” (Leviticus 16:30).
We abstain from food and drink for nearly twenty-six hours, from sunset on 9 Tishrei to nightfall of 10 Tishrei. It is the most solemn day of the year, and yet it was an undertone of joy that revels in the spirituality of the day, and expresses confidence that G-d will accept our repentance, forgive our sins, and seal our verdict for a year of life, health, and happiness.
(This took me a while to finish [mostly because Photoshop was lagging terribly while I worked on the infographics– but anyway here it is :’))
On this day, the holiest of holies, @vocabularryonthemind was born as Chelky Ann Chelkington. Known to everyone who’s me, Chelky is an icon who can draw real good, send quality memes, and has a very glamorous eyebrow shape connected to a face. I don’t know how to make the drawings as well as Chelky, but I did make a drawing of me and her celebrating and I invited Oprah. In our AU, @sexatoxbridge is getting the wine in the next room because we like her a lot
It is the holiest day in the Jewish year. It falls at the end of the Ten Days of Repentance, and after trying to amend our behavior, and seek forgiveness from those we harmed, we now stand before G-d, hoping to be sealed into the Book of Life.
Yom Kippur is observed by a near twenty-six hour fast, where we abstain from food, drink, sex, washing, applying lotions or perfumes, and wearing leather shoes. There are five prayer services across Yom Kippur, as we repent before G-d.
Yom Kippur ends with a blowing of the Shofar, a rams horn, which signals the closing of the Gates of Heaven, and the end of the fast.
Yom Kippur is not a holiday of joy, please do not wish people a “Happy Yom Kippur”. Instead, wish Jewish people an easy fast.
I feel sick. Seriously, 3 attacks in Saudi Arabia? On one of the last nights in Ramadhan, the holiest of Islamic months, just days before Eid? And one of those blasts was by the Prophet’s mosque in Madina..the second holiest place in Islam???
Fun Paladin Idea: A dwarf brewer who swore an oath of temperance after she, in a drunken stupor, crashed a wagon of consecrated ale into a temple. Her quest is to atone for her tipsy transgressions and to one day become keeper of that holiest of relics, the Tankard of Moradin!
This is the 7th blast in last 5 days but today they hit one of holiest places of Pakistan, shrine of the great Sufi saint Hazrat Usman Marwandi (ra) commonly known as Lal Shahbaz Qalander.
Pakistan’s Army and intelligence agencies are blaming it on Afghanistan and India, they might be involved in this but the real thing is that our top most leadership be it political or military they don’t have a policy to eradicate extremism!! They can kill thousands of terrorists but till they do not kill the ideological base which is the factory of terrorists they can’t control it never it is possible.
I would like to cordially remind everyone that September 11th is also Eid al-Adha. This is one of the two holiest days of the year for Muslims and is celebrated based on a lunar calendar. If you see Muslims celebrating, this has nothing whatsoever to do with the September 11, 2001 tragedies and everything to do with a beautiful religious holiday. Please share, especially with your Islamaphobic family members and neighbors, who are sure to be just dreadful about this.
We are mere hours away from the start of the holiest of days on the Jewish calendar. What an incredible blessing it is to have a series of days dedicated to repairing ourselves, mending relationships and thinking about how we can make a change for an even stronger year.
I cannot go into this Day without thinking of the many victims of Hurricane Matthew, refugees fleeing Syria, the beauty of today being Coming Out Day as well as the upcoming election. I’m thinking about hunger and malnutrition throughout the world, violence and pain, as well as hate and ignorance puncturing society.
In addition to my own t'shuva, this year, I am challenging myself to work to be more of an agent of love and tolerance and of help and acceptance.
Gmar hatima tova- I hope that we all are inscribed in the Book of Life for the coming year.
Tonight we usher in the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. It is a day of personal soul searching and repentance, which we are told seals our fates for the year ahead.
If we have repented and prayed in earnest (and made things right with our fellow human beings, and given charity), by the time the Gates of Repentance close, we can rejoice that we will have been forgiven.
We unconditionally forgive anyone who may have wronged us during this year, and we ask forgiveness for anyone we may have wronged as well.
May you be sealed in the book of life for a happy and healthy New Year.
Today’s suicide bombing in Kuwait occurred on a Friday (the holiest day of the week) during Friday prayer (also the holiest prayer of the week) in a mosque during the month of Ramadan whilst men and children were fasting.
In Kuwait, Muslim Shiaas were killed.
In Tunis, Muslim Sunnis were killed.
In France, a Christian was killed.
Terrorism has no religion. Muslims are not terrorists. No religion preaches murder. No religion preaches murder of those with the same beliefs.
according to a note i wrote in my calendar a year ago, today is the second annual International Lampfucking Day? on this holiest of days, have this incredibly rushed, almost intentionally bad pre-bedtime photoshop as a thank-you to the best fandom on tumblr
