Real Estate / Significance of Real Estate Business in Rural Areas
« on: August 14, 2010, 08:35:41 PM »
Real estate business is very much helpful where the scarcity of land is very high. The density of
population is extremely high in Bangladesh. Current annual growth rate of population is 1.48%
(GOB, 2004).

Table-1: Living Structure in Bangladesh

Particulars                                                                      Urban            Rural

Average floor space per living structure                         299 sqft          243 sqft
Bedroom spaces per person                                           62 sqft           54 sqft
Residential houses of the permanent type                         22%               1%
Residential houses of semi permanent type                       24%               15%
Residential houses of temporary type                               54%               84%

Source: BBS (2001).

From the above statistics, it is clear that land is very scarce in Bangladesh. The area occupied
by human settlements and supportive infrastructure in Bangladesh is quite high at 30 percent
(CPD, 2003). With the continued growth of population, land for agriculture and forest will
shrink in tandem. This calls for high density settlement either in high rises or in small unit low
rise apartments. Private individuals construct their house in horizontal expansion, which require
huge land for solving housing problem for small number of people. Rural Bangladesh comprises
80% of the 130 million populations growing at the rate of 1.8% per year. The estimated 16.3 million households with average size of 5.4 members occupy at least 86% of the dwelling
units in the country. The rural economy is primarily agricultural providing substantial income
to the population. Over 60% of the rural households are poor. The very low income does not
allow much for housing and 85% houses are “Kucha” (raw) whose structural frame is of
bamboo and a few pieces of lumber, usually covered with “chhan” or “shan” (hemp), a popular
thatch material of long dried grass, with plastered mud as walls. A few houses have corrugatediron
sheets as roofing. This type of house needs constant repair and cannot withstand the
ravages of natural calamities such as cyclone and floods. In 1988 for example, floodwater
completely or partially damaged houses of 1.3 million as estimated (Islam, 1993). The need to
replace and rehabilitate damaged houses has greatly increased the role of real estate business
in rural areas.
Since the enormity of the rural housing problems cannot be tackled in any appreciable degree
through the public sector due to resource constraints, we can only make a beginning in the
improvement of living conditions in the villages through private sector.
So, the role of real estate business in rural area is highly significant. Real estate business can
play a great role in rural areas through ensuring dwelling units keeping pace with the population
increase, improving the quality of village housing in terms of improved structures to reduce
the recurring annual loss to the housing stock caused by climatic hazards and natural dilapidation
and ensuring proper utilization of scarce land.

Ramadan and Fasting / something about ramadan
« on: August 12, 2010, 08:51:22 PM »
You see, that is Allah’s wonderful way of doing things. He sent so many prophets but made Muhammad (S W S ) His own elect and Seal of all the prophets. He created thousands of cities but made Makkah the cynosure of all eyes to whom millions around the globe would go for spiritual contentment. He created seven days but made Friday the holy and most cherished of those days. He created twelve months and made Ramadan king among them. Allah is indeed the best Creator. Marhaban bika ya Ramadan.

It is the month in which Muslims move closer to their Creator. The mosques are packed full and often beyond capacity. Men and women who have been bogged down by the hustle and bustle of life disengage themselves. They take sahur (meal taken early in the morning for the purpose of fasting) at a queer hour of day (a little before the streak of dawn) when nobody would contemplate eating. It is the beginning of those mandatory inconveniences Muslim devotees go through willingly during Ramadan. Marhaban bika ya Ramadan.

The meal kicks off day-long abstention from food, drink and sex. He must not abuse anyone or tell a lie. He must not fight either. He must resist all forms of provocation. He sees no evil and does no evil. It is the month of purity, the month of peace. He rounds up the day’s fast with a light meal at sunset. Many prefer breaking fast (iftar) with fruits. Marhaban bika ya Ramadan.

But no sooner had he broken his fast than he rushes down to the mosque for Salat al-Maghrib which is soon followed by Salat al-Isha’i. Thereupon he joins the congregation in observing the Salat at-Tarawih which contains 20 long rakats. These exercises bring the Muslim devotee very close to Allah during Ramadan. It is therefore the special month for piety. It doesn’t end there. There are also certain nawafil to be observed in the night. These are supererogatory prayers which keep him on his feet for some part of the night. This is aside his special devotion to the Glorious Qur’an which he recites most part of the day and night if he has the ability to read it. Marhaban bika ya Ramadan.

In these days of hunger and abject poverty, Ramadan brings smiles unto the faces of poor, hungry Nigerians. This is because it is the month of charity. Ramadan is the month for caring and sharing. That is not to say that Muslims do not give during other months but they give more at this time. Ramadan is a training ground for the rest of the year. Marhaban bika ya Ramadan.

That is where the socio-economic significance of Ramadan becomes very glaring. In a society most harshly compartmentalized into the ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’, a society in which the middle class has been most brutally eliminated, where the gap between the super rich and the terribly poor is so wide that it can swallow a forty-coach train, the institution of Ramadan comes in handy as a bridge between the rich and the poor. Marhaban bika ya Ramadan.

Many jobless and hungry Nigerians roam the streets day and night looking for a bite of anything, just anything. More often than not they find virtually nothing, nothing at all for days. The rich man reclines on a sofa and is served chicken and fried rice. He is served potatoes and ketchup. He has plenty of cold refreshing drinks in the fridge. He picks them at will. Nobody can stop him. It is a tale of two citizens, a sad tale indeed. Marhaban bika ya Ramadan.

Unfortunately the rich man is oblivious of the sufferings of the poor man. Some rich men have some milk of kindness in them. But do they really know what the poor go through? How on earth will his attention be drawn to the plight of the poor man roaming the street on an empty stomach? This is where the institution of Ramadan comes in. Marhaban bika ya Ramadan.

Divine wisdom compels the rich to stint himself of those tasty and inviting food items in his kitchen and the juicy cold drinks in his refrigerator during Ramadan. Yes, Mr. Rich, we know that you have fried chiken lap and ice cream in that fridge but because you are a Muslim and fasting, you dare not touch any food for now. You are thirsty. There are refreshing drinks right there with you in the office but you dare not take them until you have broken your fast for the day. Marhaban bika ya Ramadan.

The pangs of hunger knock incessantly on the thin flesh of his stomach. He is famished. Food is near him but he cannot eat. That is the height of discipline. This scenario cannot fail to call the attention of the rich to what the poor and hungry people go through even when there is no Ramadan. The rich are forced to realize what the poor go through. They therefore become more understanding and more willing to assist the poor. Marhaban bika ya Ramadan.

Islam is not just about going to the mosque and praying. It is not just about worshipping Allah. Islam is also about the welfare of mankind. Man we know is body, soul and spirit. Islam caters for all of these, everything that makes up manhood. The significance of the month of Ramadan cannot be encapsulated in a single article like this. But suffice it to say that Ramadan is the dot in the com. Marhaban bika ya Ramadan.

Muslims should be united in starting this Ramadan. Wait for the Sultan’s announcement and obey him. In unity lies our strength.

Real Estate / The month of holy Ramadan
« on: August 12, 2010, 08:46:23 PM »
The month of holy Ramadan enjoys a special importance in the Islamic calendar. As Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) said: "It is Allah's Own month." It is the chief of all months and the most glorious one. As we already know, 'Fasting' is one of the important pillars of Islam and it is the very month of Ramadan during which fasting has been made obligatory for all adults and sane Muslims. By fasting during Ramadan, a Muslim besides discharging an obligation imposed upon him by Allah (SWT), becomes entitled to great reward in the Hereafter. On the other hand, any lapse in the matter amounts to a great sin. Fasting is an article of worship, the knowledge about the performance or otherwise whereof rests only with Allah (SWT) and the person concerned. Hence, it is Allah (SWT) alone who will reward that person for it, on the Day of Judgment.

The blessings of Ramadan are not limited to fasting alone, because the performance of all sorts of worship and good deeds during this month is also a source of great Divine favor. The revelation of the Holy Quran commenced during this very month and it is therefore the duty of every Muslim to read and try to understand the meaning of the Holy Quran and thereby gain an insight into the Divine secrets enshrined therein. It brings peace and illumination to the mind and imparts purity to the soul.

Holy Ramadan is the month of fasting, intensive prayer, sacrifice and Divine worship. Throughout this month a devout Muslim fasts during the day in the true sense of the word, that is, he had merely denies himself food and water, but as explained by Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.), exercises strict control over his tongue, eyes, ears, thoughts and deeds and does everything possible to seek the pleasure of Allah (SWT).

Devout supplications to Allah (SWT) and repentance of one's sins during Holy Ramadhan are the sources of Divine blessings and mercy. Some nights, among the last ten nights of Ramadan, are called the 'Nights of Glory' (Laylatul Qadr). These are the 19th, 21st, and 23rd nights. Muslims keep awake during these nights and offer special prayers. Even among these nights, the 23rd enjoys excellence over all the others. It is accompanied by great blessings, and he usually grants the supplications made to Allah (SWT) during this night.

The month of holy Ramadan, besides being the month of worship and Divine blessings, carries a historical importance as well. As already mentioned above, the revelations of the Holy Quran commenced in this month. The epoch-making 'Battle of Badr' and the 'Conquest of Makkah' also took place during the holy month of Ramadan.

"Ramadhan", according to some traditions is one of Allah's names. This is why we can not say Ramadhan without making it clear that we are talking about the month, and therefore we should always say the month of Ramadhan. Commander of the faithful, Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (A.S.) said: Do not say Ramadan, but say the month of Ramadhan. For you do not know what Ramadan is? This same meaning was referred to by Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) in his speech during Shaaban: The month of Allah (SWT) is coming ...
Let us:

   1. Learn Islam with ambition,
   2. Observe Islam with sincerity,
   3. Practice Islam with discipline (Sunnah),
   4. Spread Islam with truth and kindness.
