Alhamdulillah kemarin sempat mampir sebentar di Masjid Nagoya. Ndak terasa udah lamaaa banget ga ke masjid T.T

Referring to the history of Islam in Japan, the first Mosque was built in Nagoya in January 1937. Soon after that, the building of the Mosque was burnt down by an air-raid of American B-26 plane at 8:30 in the morning of May 14th, 1945. Since then and until 1998 no any Mosque has been built by anybody in Nagoya.

The present Nagoya Mosque is established in 1998. It is opened on July 24 of the same year. Nagoya mosque consists of four floors. The Islamic center and the place for ablution are in the first floor.

日本で最初に建てられたモスクは、昭和6年(1931年)名古屋市千種区の名古屋モスクでした.

しかしながら、残念なことに名古屋モスクは第二次世界大戦時に焼失してしまいました。以後しばらくは苦労の連続で、アパートの一室を借りた小さな礼拝所など市内を転々としていました。

信徒らの募金で現在の場所(名古屋市中村区本陣通)に名古屋モスクが設立されたのは、1998年の7月。

オープンの際にはメッカ(サウジアラビアのイスラム聖地)の高位聖職者や駐日サウジ大使も駆け付けました。

現在、名古屋市とその周辺のイスラム教徒は約三千人、年々増え続けております。礼拝には1日に100人以上がモスクにおとづれることもあり、名古屋のムスリムの生活相談や情報交換の拠点にもなっています。

礼拝に来る日本人信徒は女性を中心に数十人。国際結婚した人々が多く、女性勉強会も定期的に開催されています。

Earthquake Early Warning System #belajar

1006030_10201603951441672_2021420193_n

Earthquake Early Warning (緊急地震速報), the world’s first early warning earthquake detection system, developed by Japan’s Meteorological Agency in 2007, able to detect a shockwave near the ‘quake’s seismic center and relay that message over television, radio and mobile phone.

Here’s how it works:

– Seismometers detect the first shockwave.

– Computers analyze the wave and estimate how powerful the second one will be.

– If that wave is estimated to be more powerful than a certain threshold (”lower 5″ on the local scale), an alert is issued.

It’s simple enough, but it’s a critical step so that companies — think utilities, petrochemical plants, rail operators and others — can shut down facilities and minimize damage.

Make no mistake — the warning is issued mere seconds before the earthquake actually occurs. But it’s just enough to make a difference for those further away from the seismic center — as well as initiate a ripple effect across the globe.

日本の技術は素晴らしい!!!
