Pemahaman Mengenai Manasik Umroh

Manasik umroh bukanlah sebuah ibadah, namun merupakan sebuah pembelajaran serta praktek cara melakukan umroh yang benar agar setiap jamaah paham mengenai apa yang perlu dilakukan. Dalam pelatihan tersebut para calon jamaah akan seakan-akan sudah berada di tanah suci kemudian melakukan beberapa rukun, wajib serta sunnahnya. Sebenarnya manasik bukanlah hal baru yang perlu dipelajari sebelum berangkat umroh karena di beberapa daerah manasik bahkan dimasukkan ke dalam kegiatan sekolah atau kegiatan tahunan.

Manfaat manasik umroh tentu saja sudah sangat jelas yaitu sebagai media pembelajaran. Tanpa adanya manasik calon jamaah mungkin akan kebingungan tidak mengetahui apa yang harus dilakukan saat disana. Memang adanya seringkali dijadikan alasan untuk tidak mengikuti mnasik, namun bisa dibayangkan sendiri jika keadaan sangat ramai maka akan sulit bagi pendamping untuk secra pribadi mendampingi Anda di setiap ibadah. Dengan mengetahui sendiri hukum-hukumnya serta kegiatannya Anda bisa menghemat waktu tanpa terus bertanya ke pemandu. Jamaah yang tidak bisa menyempurnakan ibadahnya akan dikenai dam atau denda. Dalam hal ini Anda harus membayar sejumlah uang tertentu dikarenakan ibadah yang tidak dilakukan dengan benar. Jadi mengikuti manasik bisa menghindarkan Anda dari denda.

Diselenggarakannnya manasik umroh memang disebabkan karena banyaknya masyarakat Indonesia yang masih awam mengenai rukun, syarat, wajib serta sunnah umroh. Kurangnya akan pengetahuan mengenai hal ini harus dibenahi melalui manasik. Dalam manasik Anda akan seolah-olah sudah berangkat umroh lengkap dengan pakaian ihram yang sudah dipkai. Biasanya ada ka’bah tiruan yang digunakan untuk mempermudah praktek melakukan umroh. Sayangnya tidak smeua manasik dilakukan dengan benar sehingga Anda menbutuhkan travel terpercaya. Abutours sebagai salah satu travel umroh yang ada di Indonesia memberikan pelayanan lengkap bagi para calon jamaah mulai dari harga paketnya yang terjangkau hingga kantor cabang yang sudah banyak di Indonesia memudahkan Anda datang langsung untuk bertanya. Kunjungi website resminya untuk mendapatkan info lebih banyak seputar umroh di Abutours sebelum memutuskan untuk menggunakan dan membeli paket umroh disana.

Life Is A Beach

Life Is A Beach

I often wondered why is it that I am a pebble man when it comes to the choice of beaches. It sounds like a phrase from Flintstones but you would be surprised to learn that for some people it is a prevailing factor when going on holiday.

Some of you are already cheering: Quite right so as there is nothing more annoying than sand being literally plastered to your body the moment you get out of the water. Aided by the scorching sunrays, your look is transformed to a builder in swimming trunks.

When in Rome behave like… This phrase is universal and when it comes to Dubrovnik, you may notice that quite a few people go to beaches, read rocks and that everyone has their favorite spot, which is as sacred as St Blaise’s relic head. (St Blaise is Dubrovnik’s patron saint.)

Banje is a rare sandy beach in the vicinity of the Old Town. It is now split in two as one of the halves is a retro beach bar club. As for the other half, that is where mere mortals go for free and enjoy the same old sea. Another well famous sandy beach is Sunj on the island of Lopud. This one is a natural beach hence more pleasant to enjoy.

As for my pebbles, beach belonging to Hotel Dubrovnik President is a winner alongside the one belonging to Hotel Plat.

For all of you peeps in search of rocky adventures, pay a visit to an island of Lokrum.
Despite the loom and doom bestowed upon the island by the Benedictines for the ill fate of eviction from their monastery, at the times of Dubrovnik Republic, Lokrum is still a botanical paradise. Its stillness is at times shattered by the peacocks, protruding themselves in a quite dominant way.

Last but not the least, a friendly peace of advice. Your budget permitting, pay a visit to Elaphite’s three islands. Kolocep will give you a feeling of an islander who is at Dubrovnik’s doorstep. Sipan will charm you with nature’s simplicity and mode of life which has been set in for decades. As for Lopud, well one word: Sunj.

Beach Holiday Travel Insurance – Some Sobering Advice

Beach Holiday Travel Insurance

A beach holiday is something we all dream of – a time of relaxation and carefree fun – just like the pictures in the holiday brochures.

See yourself there now… relaxing on a sun-kissed, white sand, tropical beach, sipping an icy drink through a straw, while palm fronds sway gently in the breeze… Later, as the sun sets, the hypnotic rhythm of a native steel band summons you along the shore, where the love of your life and more rum punches await…

Screech… Sorry, but a nasty jolt back to reality – and some words of caution. If you plan on activities like snorkeling, windsurfing or sailing think twice before ordering another cold cerveza – or cocktail with a funny name; you know the ones – they look like fruit juice, with a pretty umbrella. Those on Hen and Stag trips should pay particular attention because the majority of holidaymakers have no idea that travel insurance is unlikely to cover claims when intoxication is found to be a factor! Sorry to spoil the fantasy, but it’s a sobering fact from the real world… Remember that?

Travel insurance covers many aspects of a holiday, but does not provide an excuse to act irresponsibly. All policies have exclusions regarding ‘willful exposure to peril’ but who bothers to read the boring insurance jargon? Basically it means the insured is expected to do everything possible to prevent injury, illness, and damage or loss to property. In other words – to act as if there is no insurance!

Don’t jump at the cheapest quote on that online comparison site. Check the levels of cover – especially medical expenses and hospital benefit. In countries like the USA medical costs can be mind-boggling, so be especially careful if heading for places like Miami or Malibu. Emergency medical repatriation is another essential which may be missing from that cheap policy. It’s worth paying a bit more to make sure the cover is adequate.

Do you understand the meaning of ‘incidental’ basis?

Going snorkeling or on a helicopter sightseeing trip, for example, is normally covered on an ‘incidental’ (casual) basis. The difference is that going on a sailing holiday would be ‘non-incidental’ because the main purpose of the trip is sailing.

Are your planned activities covered?

Activities like wind surfing, deep sea fishing, banana boating and parascending are normally covered on an incidental basis. Kayaking and scuba diving cover may depend on the grade or depth.

Rented water sports equipment may not be well maintained or up to a safe standard, plus the operators may not be licensed or insured – so personal liability can be an issue. Travel insurance policies do not normally cover personal liability claims arising from use of any vehicle, watercraft, or mechanically propelled conveyance – which includes jet skis. An example would be renting water-ski equipment and an accident caused breakage of the equipment or, worse, injury to third parties. One more word of caution… Without travel insurance it is the responsibility of the family of an injured or deceased person to pay the medical expenses and arrange repatriation of the injured – or the body. Who would want to put their loved ones through that?

What else can you do to avoid trouble? Find out about potentially unfriendly sea life at your destination. There are hazards like jellyfish, which could deliver a painful or even deadly sting, so learn to spot them before they make contact. Sea critters like stingrays may hide in the sand and attack it you tread on them so invest in a pair of beach shoes to wear in the surf. Take care with food and drink to avoid the Tourist Two Step, Delhi Belly, Montezuma’s Revenge, Casablanca Crud – or worse.

With a bit of thought and preparation nothing should spoil those long, lazy, happy, sun-filled days at the beach. Choose your travel insurance wisely, whether it be single trip, annual multi-trip, or a backpacker policy (cheaper because of reduced cover for luggage). Pack an ounce of common sense along with the beach towels and sunscreen, go easy with the rum punches, and your holiday should turn out exactly like the one in the glossy holiday brochure!

At the Museum entrance, visitors will be met by a volunteer greeter and will notice a sculpture, THE SPIRIT OF NAVAL AVIATION, which depicts Naval aviations from 5 conflicts. It is a heroic sculpture that honors the deeds of the men.

The Cubi Bar Cafe offers lunch and dessert, and is step back in time to the authentic Officers’ Club at Cubi Point in the Philippines. Everything from the Club was brought back from the Philippines and most displays were reassembled within the Museum.

Helicopters, as well as the recreation of the Hanoi Hilton (a North Vietnamese Prisoner of War Camp). This exhibit is symbolic of the hardships endured by POW’S from all wars. I volunteer in “The Homefront “. This is on the 2nd floor of the museum and is a one block replica of Pensacola in 1943 during the 2nd World War. There is a neighborhood grocery store and home you can go into and store fronts that were there during that time as well as a theatre front.

Near the these exhibit are the F-14 Tomcat flight simulators where visitors can take control in the cockpit and test their skills in a dogfight.

There is the Blue Angel Atrium which honors the Navy’s famous flight demonstration squadron.

Located near the flight deck is an underwater exhibit, Sunken Treasures, which displays a Douglas SBD dive bomber and a Grumman F4F6 fighter. These airplanes are displayed exactly as they were found at the bottom of Lake Michigan.

There are also many cockpit simulators that are open for children of all ages to sit in and pretend “to fly.”

Orange beach is a beautiful destination with warm weather and wonderful beaches. They offer unique places to eat and shop. The real destination however is the National aviation Museum. It recreates the most profound air display and memorials. The other points of interest inside the museum are so inspiring. You will have a real understanding of what some of the areas of life were like during these conflicts.
