This is a short primer on the site and how to access it. C A L T E C H M U S L I M S S T U D E N T S ================================================= Dated: January 30, 1994 Caltech Muslim Students Group offers number of files on its ftp server. These files have been extracted from different forums and are in compressed (in UNIX) format. Asim Mughal (mughal@alumni.Caltech.Edu) Asif Khalak (asif@romeo.caltech.edu) ____________________________________________________________________________ Primer on getting documents from the Caltech MSA ftp site. 1. To access the site, you should log into a UNIX account. If you don't have one, get one. The reason that UNIX is preferred is that it is currently the operating system of choice in academic spheres which are capable of using ftp. The other reason that UNIX is used is that efficient data compression routines are standardly packaged with UNIX, and we can thus pack more information into the limited space that we are allocated for the site. 2. The next step is to run ftp (stands for File Transfer Protocol). The information is stored at punisher.caltech.edu (this is called the location of the site). To do this type the following at the command prompt: % ftp punisher.caltech.edu Alternatively, you can start up ftp and go to punisher within it, like this: % ftp ftp> open punisher.caltech.edu Note that the "ftp>" is a prompt provided by the ftp program. 3. At this point ftp will ask for a name. The information is public, so you'll want to use anonymous ftp. That is, at the name prompt, type anonymous. Name: anonymous 4. Then ftp will say it's okay, but you need to send identification as the password. This means that when it asks you for a password, you type in your e-mail address. Password: <your address> (for example: mughal@caltech.edu) 5. Now you are in the Caltech system. The next step is to get to the Muslim Student's association directory. The full name of the directory is /home/ftp/pub/calmsa. However, you are placed into the /home/ftp directory when you get in. To get to the msa directory, then, type: ftp> cd pub/calmsa Note, the on-line Quran translation is located in a subdirectory of the calmsa directory named Quran. To get into it, use "cd Quran". Also, you can use the command "ls", as in UNIX, to list the files in the directory that you are currently in. 6. At this point you can retrieve files. Things go more quickly if you are in binary mode. Thus, you tell ftp, ftp> mode bin 7. To get a file, you simply use the command get. For example, ftp> get thefileIwant.Z A list of files with brief descriptions is located in the file README. It is NOT compressed, so you can simply read it. 8. Notice that the file from get has a .Z extension. This is because it is compressed. To uncompress it, you need to get out of ftp. The command is "bye". At the command line, the command to uncompress, surprisingly enough, is "uncompress" ftp> bye % uncompress thefileIwant 9. Now you can print the file, more it, whatever... ---------------------------------------------------------------------- LIST OF FILES AVAILABLE: (Partial List) /Quran Quran directory: English Translations of Holy Quran emaan.Z Article on Islamic faith (Emaan) by IINN books.Z Islamic Books from ICNA: SRI computer.Z <deleted> forums.Z List of Muslim Forums by IINN prayer.f Fortran program to calculate prayer timings treatise.Z Interpretation of Quran, MSA UW Madison biblio-full.Z Bibliography on Religious Studies ijtihad.Z Treatise on Ijtihad, MSA UW Madison islam-rc.Z Islamic Computer Resource Guide June 24 '92 V1.1a think.Z Article: People who think by MSA Univ. of Wisconsin bosnia.Z Information on Bosnia, gathered by IINN prayer.c C program to calculate prayer timings: Waqar Malik hadith.Z Hadiths on Forgiveness for New Muslims & Slavery :IINN marriage.Z Wedding in Islam: Article by Mir Mohammad :IINN educators.Z Int'l Association of Muslim Educators - Announcement finality.1 Finality of Prophet Muhammad I - IINN Publication finality.2 Finality of Prophet Muhammad II - IINN Publication finality.3 Finality of Prophet Muhammad III - IINN Publication faq.sri.2.3 Frequently Asked Questions: Soc.Religion.Islam [V 2.3] kashmir.pns94 U.N.

Under these circumstances, you might wish to read portions of our Newsletters. This communique is to help you in doing so. First of all, let me explain the order in which the Newsletter will always be prepared. Following the header, there might be a short special Greetings. This will be followed by the `Contents' section. This section contains all the items that are to appear after it. They appear in order as following: 1. Quran 2. Hadith 3. Editorial 4. News 5. Articles 6. Announcements 7. Letters to the Editor All of them might not neccessarily appear in every issue. However, these sections will be marked by the above title and followed by dots `.' . All the items that appear in the `Contents' section will be preceded by exactly a line as appeared in the `Contents' section. This gives a very important edge to the reader. The reader may chose the entire line as it appears in the `Contents' section or even a part of it, as a pattern to search in the rest of the message. Since the item is preceeded by an exactly same line, the pattern search should find it. This will provide the reader with selective reading ability. Examples on different platforms are provided below: Unix: ____ Once you are in the Unix mail facility, the default pager is more (1). You can define other pagers like less (1) using the PAGER variable while in mail utility or in ~/.mailrc file. Please see the following for more information: more (1), less (1), mail (1) However, once you have started reading the Newsletter, you can page down to the `Contents' section. Select the article that you like. Now search for it by using the slash `/' command in `more' or `less' followed by the string that you want to search for. It will, of course be more convenient if you have a mouse to this for you. Sunview: _______ Using the mailtool Sun utility makes it very easy for this purpose. Select a line by quickly clicking with the left button three times. You can also click the line with clicking with left button at the beginning of the line and middle button at the end of the line.

Ramadan is the nineth month of the Islamic calendar. It is the month of daily fasting from dawn to sunset. 4. Eidul-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan and is a major holiday for all Muslims. 5. Hajj is the yearly pilgrimage to Makkah. It falls in the twelveth month of the Islamic calendar. Each year about three million Muslims go to Saudi Arabia for Hajj. 6. Eidul-Adha is on the 10th day of the 12th Islamic month. It is the second major holiday. It is a three-day holiday. Muslims all over the world hold special prayers and sacrifice animals to commemorate the trial of Abraham in which he was asked to sacrifice his only son Ishmael for the sake of God. 7.
