Have an easy and meaningful fast. Happy #YomKippur
"The day of #Atonement
". Seems to me the #Muslims
and the #Jews
have more in common than I thought from sacrificing animals, #Praying
towards rocks & one has their #ShariaLaw
the other #MosaicLaw
Muslims got: #TheBlackStoneOfMecca
, or #KaabaStone
, is a Muslim relic, which according to #Islamic
tradition dates back to the time of Adam and Eve. It is the eastern cornerstone of the #Kaaba
, the ancient sacred stone building towards which Muslims pray, in the center of the Grand Mosque in #Mecca
Jews got: The Western Wall, Wailing Wall, or Kotel, known in Islam as the Buraq Wall, is an ancient limestone wall in the Old City of Jerusalem. It is a relatively small segment of a far longer ancient retaining wall, known also in its entirety as the "Western Wall.
The Western Wall is considered holy due to its connection to the Temple Mount. Because of the Temple Mount entry restrictions, the Wall is the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray, though the holiest site in the Jewish faith lies behind it.
The Western wall is the last remnant of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, which was destroyed in 70 CE by Titus and the Roman legions. Interestingly, the Romans did not destroy the protective wall which surrounded the Temple. This leads many Jews to believe that the wall is holy and has been blessed by God.
I was under the impression that you had to ask for forgiveness daily or regularly, but in the #Jewish
religion you get to knock it out all in one day #Whatever
Day of Atonement. An annual day of #Fasting
among the #Israelites
, still observed by their descendants, the present-day Jews (see also Jews). It occurs in autumn, and its observance is one of the requirements of the #MosaicLaw
. Jews call this day Yom Kippur.
Atonement refers to the #Forgiving
or pardoning of #Sin
in general and original sin in particular through the suffering, death & resurrection of #Jesus
, enabling the reconciliation between #God
& his creation.
This is all a little foreign to me but I'm starting to recognize some similarities. Please educate me, if I'm COMPLETELY wrong in the comments.
