Kabul (BNA) The month of Ramadan is one of the Lunar and the best month of the year.
The word of Ramadan has been driven from the root of Ramd that means intensive sunshine on gravels. It has been said that during nomination of Arabic months (Lunar months) it was peak of summer, therefore, this month was called Ramadan. This month is the month of holy Quran advent in which Shab-e-Qadr exists in. The virtue of month of Ramadan is very much and unlimited. Ramadan is the month of Allah in which the doors of sky and heaven are opened and the doors of hell are closed. Shab-e-Qadr is better than thousand months.
In his speech and sermon on the virtue and magnificence of Ramadan, the Great Prophet (PBUH) has said Oh, servants of Allah, the month of Ramadan is month of blessing, mercy and warship and proceeding towards Allah. This month is a month which is the best of months with Allah. It’s days, nights and hours are the best of all. You have been invited by Allah and you have been blessed. In this month, your breathings are rosary, your sleep is worship, your deeds are accepted and your prayers are received. So with right intention and clean heart ask your Allah to grace you to take fast and recite holy Quran. Remember the hunger and thirst of the resurrection day with thirst and hunger of this month. The one who is deprived of Allah forgiveness, is unlucky. Explaining the jobs of fasting people, the Great Prophet (PBUH) talked on alms to poors, respect to elders, mercy to children, protection of tongue and eye from illegal things, kindness to orphans, long prostration during prayers, repentance and recitation of holy Quran and their virtues in this month.
Some important events in Ramadan:
Demise of Hazrat-i-Bibi Khadija on the 10th of Ramadan of tenth year of Prophet mission, birth of Emam Hassan on mid Ramadan in second year of mission, the war of Bader in second year of mission, conquering of Mecca in 8th year of mission, martyrdom of Hazrat Ali etc. In the month of Ramadan, the soul of fasting people is purified from all corruption and dirty things therefore due to this philosophy, the month of Ramadan is called the month of forgiveness, compassion and salvation from the fire of hell. If the fasting people according to the principles of Ramadan resort to fulfill fasting and other worships, it is clear that he/she manages to establish a basic change in his body adaptable with fasting norms and requirement of holy month of Ramadan and he/she would access to prosperity and freedom of this and the next world. Based on this principle, the religious scholars have introduced this month as the changer of Muslim’s life and consider it as a big ordeal of sympathy, renewal of faith with Allah and loyalty to Allah and social ethics. So it is better to learn lessons from this holy month and be an example in our behavior and ethics and arrange our programs within this framework that would cause an atmosphere of sympathy and coordination among Muslims and make them accountable before each other’s destiny.

Kabul (BNA) Afghan women have long been the target of violence and systemic injustice. 
While Afghan women have taken dramatic strides forward, female participation and contribution to the justice sector is an area that has been drastically inadequate to address these social issues women face daily, a statement from the USAID said.
According to the statement, a recent survey of the International Development Law Organization found that in 2013 Afghan women made up only eight percent of the country’s judges, six percent of prosecutors and less than one fifth of lawyers.  To address this issue, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in collaboration with Afghanistan’s Attorney General’s Office (AGO) launched a program placing 242 Afghan female Law and Sharia graduates in a six-month internship program in AGOs in all 34 provinces of Afghanistan, the statement added.
A key driver of these efforts is the commitment by the Attorney General office and the Office of the President to expand the number of female prosecutors.  The Attorney General has expressed his hope to triple the number of women prosecutors to 17 percent, the statement continued as saying. On Tuesday, US Ambassador Hugo Llorens, representatives from the US Government, USAID, Afghanistan’s Attorney General Mohammad Farid Hamidi, the Minister of Women’s Affairs Delbar Nazari, and other dignitaries welcomed a number of the interns at the US Embassy and recognized the challenges faced by the women of Afghanistan.
“We are here to celebrate these remarkable young women who are pioneers and future leaders of Afghanistan’s justice system and to celebrate their achievement, applaud their courage and inspire them to move forward and realize their dreams,” Ambassador Llorens said.  “As they do, they will be driving social change in Afghanistan and are key architects in creating a system of justice that promotes and protects all members of society.” “We are committed to increasing the number of female prosecutors in the country, and address the issues so many Afghan women face through our justice system,” said Attorney General Hamidi. “We pledge our full support to the interns, and this program to address these lingering issues on a permanent basis.” This program is funded under USAID’s Strengthening Education in Afghanistan, Phase II. The internship curricula includes: pre-entry training focusing on the development of practical skills, six months of internship in an AG Office; and a second week-long skills development workshop to provide additional training in the areas of legal writing, courtroom behavior, and the development of a network. The overall objective is to support the women in successfully completing their internships, to pass the open and merit-based AGO entrance examinations, and be employed in the AGO as female prosecutors, the statement concluded.
