Muslim Weddings and their Rituals

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 6:12 AM 0 comments


Islamic Wedding Ceremony Follow Religious Traditions
Muslim weddings are a riot of color and celebrations. The ceremonies of a Muslim marriage last up to three days. The rituals mainly consist of customs revolving around the approval of the parties involved (bride and groom) in front of guests who are the witnesses. The following article will discuss about such rituals of Muslim marriages and how they are performed.

Pre-Wedding Rituals


Mangni: This is the engagement ceremony where the going-to-be bride and groom exchange rings. This marks the onset of their matrimonial journey.

Mehendi: The ceremony of Mehendi is conducted at the bride’s home a day before the wedding. The aunts smear the girl with turmeric paste or Haldi to give a glow to her skin and the Mehendi or henna is applied on her hands and feet. The women sing traditional folk songs. After this ritual, the bride cannot move out of the house until her marriage.

Mahr: This custom involves welcoming the Baraat. The groom arrives at the venue with his family and friends along with a band of musicians. The groom is welcomed and then made to share a glass of juice with the bride`s brother. The sisters of the bride then play pranks by playfully hitting the guests with bouquets of flowers.

Wedding Rituals



Muslim Wedding Ceremony
 On the day of the wedding, also called Nikaah, a priest or Maulvi is invited to conduct the main ceremony. The women and men are supposed to sit on different ends of the separately. The fathers (Walis) of the bride and of the bridegroom play a vital role in the ceremony. The Maulvi says aloud selected verses from the holy Quran, which is followed by the Ijab-e-Qubul, after which the Nikaah is complete. Ijab-e-Qubul is the proposal & acceptance wherein the groom proposes to the beautiful bride and she conveys her acceptance by saying, “Kubool hai” (I accept.)

The elders of both families sit together and fix an amount of Mahr for the nuptial gift for the newlywed couple. This is an obligatory token amount given to the bride by the groom`s family. The marriage is registered in a contract called Nikahnama. This document is signed by the bride, groom, Walis and Maulvi. The groom then seeks the blessings of the elderly women by offering them salaam.

This is followed by prayers, dinner and Aarsimashaf. The dinner or daawat is a lavish affair with a huge spread of food. Here too, the men and women dine separately. Post-feast, the newly-weds sit together for the first time. They cover their heads and repeat prayers after the Maulvi. The holy Quran is now placed between the couple and they can see each other through mirrors.

Post-Wedding Rituals



Muslim Wedding Rituals
Rukhsat is a ritual where the bride`s relatives bid her a farewell as she leaves for her husband`s home. The father of the bride gives her hand into her husband’s and requests him to take care of her. Later at the groom’s house, the bride is welcome by keeping the Quran over her head. The fourth day after wedding, the Chauthi ceremony is held where the bride visits her parents’ home.

The wedding venue does not necessarily have to be a specific location, it may either be the groom or the bride`s house. Islamic marriages are not always extravagant, but they tend to reflect an expression of love and devotion. If you wish to find yourself a beautiful Muslim bride or a handsome groom, there are various Muslimmatrimony websites available on the internet that will help you find your soul-mate. Or you could simply let your aunts do the talking. Whatever the case be, it will certainly be a happy reunion with the most graceful customs beautifying the event.

KISS Band Make Up History

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 1:26 AM 0 comments

KISS Band Make Up History
In 1973, two New York based struggling musicians Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley formed a small band named Wicked Lester. This two member band recorded an album that never got officially released and they eventually parted their ways. After some time Gene and Paul recruited guitarist Ace Frehley and Drummer Peter Criss to form a band named KISS. KISS was one of the highly influential rock and roll bands of all times. The career milestones of KISS are confounding, boasting four successful decades of their record breaking tours all over the world. KISS performed successfully for almost 30 years and then by the end of year 2000 these masked marvels of the rock world blew their final Kiss to their fans. The legacy of this renowned band continues to grow transcending creed, race and age.

Makeup by KISS

In the early 1970`s a rock genre that was immensely popular was Glitter Rock. KISS was profoundly influenced by this genre and loved the escapism which existed behind the glam and glitter. In order to accentuate their attitude the band members of KISS decided to wear a weird makeup which they called as War Paint along with ever-evolving outlandish kind of outfits and clown makeup.

They even wore different patterns which later on became their recognition. For example, Guitarist Paul Stanley wore Star Child, Ace adopted the makeup of Spaceman, Peter became the cat and the bassist Gene became the demon. The other band members also adopted different characters for their makeup.

Makeup by KISSIn the words of Gene Simmons - The time when we were forming our band in New York there was a huge glitter scene where boys used to put makeup and act like girls. So we also got influenced by this and became outlandish in our appearance. We were not a grateful dead type of band which would get on stage and look worse. Going onstage was like a holy place for all of us and this is where our dressing and makeup came in.

Gene also said that when the KISS characters became iconic, inspiring a lucrative line of Halloween costumes, lunch boxes, action figures and even coffins & hello kitty fashions, there was no marketing team, celebrity stylist or a real master plan behind this.

Critics reaction to KISS's makeup

Critics never liked the KISS for what it was doing but fans were growing slowly and steadily. The fans banded together and preferred to be known as KISS army. As KISS became popular, their costumes became even more elaborate.

How the makeup era in KISS came to an end

In 1983 the band sported the biggest change and for the very first time they decided to put off their makeup which they used to call as war paint and become a normal rock and roll band. Their costume became steadily nonexistent and the stage shows also scaled down considerably. After this, they always performed without makeup and outlandish costumes. With this change, they developed new fans purely on the basis of their music.

Practice Safety with Your ATV Winch

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 1:12 AM 0 comments

Practice Safety with Your ATV Winch
Buying and installing a winch is one thing, knowing how to use it safely is another. Winching isn’t difficult, but it can be dangerous if you do not know how to do it correctly. Before you attempt to use your new winch, make sure that you understand these safety precautions:

1. Read

Any winch that you buy comes with an installation and operation manual. If you choose to install the winch yourself, be sure to follow the instructions to the letter. Take time to read the operations section of the manual before operating your winch. The instruction manual will outline safe operating practices that must be followed. If you have questions after reading the manual, contact the manufacturer for answers and clarification.

2. Practice

After you've read the manual, practice using the winch. When a situation presents itself that requires the use of your winch, it will undoubtedly be a high-stress event. Don't count on being able to remember what you've read when you have adrenaline coursing through your body. Sit with your operator's manual and practice using the winch as is outlined. Practice several times until you can operate the winch in a safe manner.

3. The Wire

Before you use the winch for the first time, take care to stretch the wire rope properly. According to ATV experts, stretching the rope ahead of time reduces the likelihood of wire failure when pulling. When using the wire rope to pull, leave at least one layer on the drum. One layer is equal to approximately five wraps. Over-extending the wire rope can cause it to pull away from the drum, rendering it useless.

4. Watch the Clutch

How you operate the clutch can make the difference between smooth operation and a terrible accident. Once you have disengaged the clutch, make sure that it is full disengaged. Never engage the clutch when the winch is in operation, and never disengage when the wire rope is taut. Make a note of proper clutch operation and keep it nearby until you are used to using your winch the right way.

5. Battery

Practice Safety with Your ATV WinchUsing the winch can drain your battery quickly. Make note of your battery's charge both before and after winch operation. If using the winch drains your battery, you may want to consider an upgrade. Pulling your ATV out of a tight spot won't make a bit of difference if you don't have enough juice to make it back to your vehicle. Think about your battery's power capabilities when choosing a winch. Keep in mind that you may be required to spend money on both a winch and a battery that is capable of operating it efficiently.

Winches are a fantastic addition to any ATV used for off-roading and trail riding. If you don't know how to use your winch correctly, it can also be a very dangerous addition. Take the time to learn how to use your winch the right way to ensure that it is the useful tool it was designed to be.
