New Year 2010 – Meaning & Significance

Friends…something to ponder about. Sometimes things happened around us, which we might regard them as norms. Probably we’re born in the period of time which were full of deceptions and lies (fitna Dajjal or anti-christ).

Well, the celebration of the new year is considered the oldest of all holidays which was first observed in ancient Babylon about 4000 years ago, (according to wilstar.com/holidays/newyear.htm. ) The Babylonian New Year began with the first New Moon after the first day of spring and the celebration lasted for eleven days. Each day had its own unique celebration. Experts say modern New Year’s Eve festivities pale in comparison. The Romans continued to observe the new year in March, but their calendar was changed by various emperors. According to The World Book Encyclopedia, “The Roman ruler Julius Caesar established Jan. 1 as New Year’s Day in 46 B.C. The Romans dedicated this day to Janus, the god of gates, doors and beginnings. (references)

-The month of January was named after Janus, who had two faces — one looking forward and the other looking backward.

Although the Romans continued celebrating the new year into the first century, the early Christians condemned the festivities as paganism (of what Zionist Illuminati yet practicing until ‘modern’ days).
During which Roman paganist infiltrated Christianity politically. Centuries later the church began having its own religious observances concurrently with many pagan celebrations, blending the two, including New Year’s Day.
Today, we find remnants of Babylonian and Roman worship hidden inside the least likely places of our society. Consider, for example, the names of our months and days of the week.
-While January was named after the Roman god Janus, the god of beginnings and endings,
-February is said to come from the Roman god Februus, the god of the dead and purification.

-March is named after Mars, the Roman god of war.

-The month of May is thought to come from Maiesta, the Roman goddess of honor, while June was named after Juno, the goddess of married women.
-July was named in honor of Julius Caesar.  August was named after Roman emperor, Augustus.
-Sunday (not Son-day) is named in honor of the Roman sun-god, sol. In Islam Muslim honour Friday.  Monday or Moon day was named in honor of the Roman moon goddess, Lunar. Tiw’s day or
-Tuesday was named after Tiw, a Norse god of war. .
-Woden’s day or Wednesday was named after Woden, the god of the wild hunt, also called Odin, the chief Norse god in paganism.
-Thursday or Thor’s day was named after Odin’s son, Thor, the god of thunder.
-Friday or Frey’s day was associated with Freya, the Norse goddess of love, beauty, fertility and destiny while Saturday or Saturn’s day honored Saturn, the Roman god of agriculture.

Mmmmm…Isn’t it interesting that our week days and most of our months are still named in honor of ancient gods and goddesses and emperors that were worshipped? Even the planets in our solar system bear the names of these pagan gods.

Yet now this New Year celebration have penetrate almost global societies, to which extent without the proper understanding on it’s significance behind such fest.

Peace & Love


Awal Muharam and ‘New Year’ Celebration

Hi everybody,

Recently most global population celebrated Awal Muharam and soon celebrating so-called a ‘New Year’. Both are base respectively on nature circulation of moon orbiting the earth, and circulation of sun orbiting the earth; where we live in. Some believe that these gives impact to our lives and surrounding nature and  environment.
Maybe we’re yet still to get the better understanding of the two above in the significance of both to our body, mind and soul.

In Islam, there’s an events of Hijrah, the time cycle is base on the moon-earth orbiting which each respective months bring several benefits tp weeks to even  days to even hours. For example the month of Ramadhan, the day of Friday, and goes to the hourly phase like the 3rd part of the night ij Tahajud prayer had been mentioned.

In Paganism (the belief of ancient Egypt which until now practices by Zionist Illuminati as well as Kaballa satanism practice) , they take the Sun as the significant part of their belief and ritual, and adopted them in other cultures and beliefs , for example the worship of Sun been implemented in global weekly practice as Sunday (and not Son-day).

Nevertheless the promotion of Pagan-based New Year had well been absorbed world-wide through Zionist mainstream media gloally and thus becoming a norms in almost many societies in this world – taken as global fest; to whether with full understanding nor otherwise.

FOJB team wish all Muslims globally that celebrating Awal Muharam ;and to all celebrating ‘New Year’

– a truth year ahead.

Meterology Explanation: Bukit Tinggi Tremors – 9km South East of Janda Baik

(An excerpt from Bernama dated 15-October’2009)

Link: http://www.bernama.com/bernama/v5/newsindex.php?id=447156 By: By Bashariah Zainuddin

Since the end of 2007, 40 tremors were recorded in Malaysia but the significant fact was that 37 incidences of these seismic activity occurred along the fault line in Bentong, Pahang.

The three others recorded were in Manjung (Perak) and Jerantut (Pahang).

Meterological Department Director Dr Rosaidi Che Abas said from November 2007 until May last year, Bentong recorded 29 cases of tremors, also known as ‘temblors’.

The latest tremors were recorded last Oct 8 where there were eight, that measured between 4.45am and 12.05 noon recorded between 1.1 and 2.8 in magnitude on the Richter scale.

All of these tremors were detected at Bukit Tinggi and Janda Baik, along the fault line of 15 km wide and 70 km long. However only in one incident that the Meteorological Department detected a strong tremor of 3.5 in magnitude on the Richter scale.

“What we can say is that even though Bukit Tinggi and Janda Baik are located on the fault line, any earthquake will not possibly surpass 5.0 in magnitude on the Richter scale which means if such an earthquake occurs, it will not cause damage to a structurally-strong building.

“We are also stressing that the tremors occurred along that fault line and not at the Titiwangsa Range which is the country’s backbone,” he told Bernama in an interview here.


The concerned residents of Bukit Tinggi and Janda Baik had recently called on the government to make a detailed study on the soil structure along the fault line there.

Their concerns picked a new high following the massive earthquake that hit West Sumatra last Sept 30 as the shocks and tremors were also felt at several locations in Peninsular Malaysia.

The residents claimed that despite no collapse of buildings occurred, there were damages to assets as well as cracks in the walls and floors.

According to the residents, Janda Baik and Bukit Tinggi were hit by the first tremors in November 2007 following a series of earthquakes that occurred in Indonesia and Philippines.

Dr Rosaidi said the Meterological Department will work closely with the Minerals and Geoscience Department as well as other agencies to conduct an immediate study on the earth’s surface and structure at both locations.

“We will also talk to the affected residents to know what they meant by earth movement and what they felt when this seismic activity happened.

“We also want to know the strength of the tremors said to have caused cracks in the walls and floors (of buildings),” said Dr Rosaidi.


Meterological Department Director Dr Rosaidi said so far the earthquakes that occurred were between one and 10 miles beneath the earth’s surface.

“Only on two occassions that earthquakes with the magnitude of between 2.8 and 3.5 on the Richter scale and both instances occurred 10 miles under the earth’s surface,” he said.

There are 13 seismology stations operating in Malaysia, capable of detecting quakes and tremors that occur in the country. Seven are in Peninsular Malaysia with the rest in Sabah and Sarawak. The latest seismology station to operate is in Jerantut, Pahang.

“Our officers are on duty round-the-clock. They will alert the authorities and each of their entry record is exactly the time when the earthquake happened,” he said.

Dr Rosaidi said there were four seismological fault lines detected in the country – Jerantut, Bentong, Kuala Lumpur and the latest, in Manjong Perak.

Meanwhile, Meteorological Department Director-General Dr Yap Kok Seng said any earthquake that measured 2.8 or less on the Richter scale was unlikely to cause damage and harm to life and limb.

“The tremors that happened in Bukit Tinggi was a restabilisation process of the earth’s structure at the fault line in Bukit Tinggi.

He said this restabilisation process followed the movement of the earth’s layers in the wake of the large-scale earthquakes that happened in the past few years.

Among the major earthquakes were that on Dec 26 in Aceh, Indonesia that caused the Tsunami in the Indian Ocean, Nias (Indonesia) on March 28, 2005. The latest was on Sept 30 this year that hit Padang in Indonesia and Bengkulu (Oct 1, 2009).


The magnitude of an earthquake can be measured using the seismometer or seismograph that records it on the Richter scale of 1.0 to 10.0.

An earthquake that recorded 1.0 on the Richter is too small and can occur daily without being noticed.

According to the Information Department Deta Centre, earthquakes that recorded between 7.0 and 10.0 on the Richter scale were the major seismologic incidents that happened between 10 and 20 years.

The on-line centre provides information on the “dos’ and ‘don’ts” if an earthquake occurs.

It also lists out what action to be taken if an earthquake strikes for those who are in the buildings and near these structures, on the streets and in moving vehicles.

In the mean time, the Meterological Department has assured that no large-scale earthquake is expected to hit the country.
