In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

Asalamu ‘alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

Dear brothers and sisters in Islam and Thurrock residents, welcome to ThurrockMuslims.com

We’re here to inspire, educate and unite everyone on goodness, peace, justice and the Truth, in sha Allah.

This is your space- Your place to learn about Islam from the authentic sources of the Islamic deen (religion/way of life). Here, you will benefit from reminders from the Noble book of Allah, Al-Qur’an, and from the Sunnah (practices and teachings of Allah’s final Messenger and Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.) We post updates of local activities and events, Mosque and Madrasah announcements, news and articles, videos and much more! Let’s stay connected .Sign up and follow us.

We would like to remind ourselves and you to remember our purpose in life:

Allah The Exalted said in surah Az-zariyaat (English interpretation):

 

وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ – 51:56

 “And I (Allah) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship me (alone).”

[Qur’an, chapter 51 verse 56]

 

This is our noble purpose in life, to worship Allah alone. Therefore, let us serve the Ever-Living Creator of the universe, Allah. We need to worship Him and He doesn’t need us. Through obeying Allah we can attain happiness, for ultimately, we are preparing for the meeting with Him on the day of Judgement.

Let us strive for Allah’s pleasure, for the everlasting bliss in paradise, in sha Allah.

shahadah

 

Moreover, the Final messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said:

 “Actions are but by intentions, and each person will have but that which he intended.”

(Bukhari and Muslim)

Therefore dear brothers and sisters, let us strive to keep our intentions purely and sincerely for the sake of Allah alone, seeking reward from Him. Let us also perform the actions according to the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, for Allah commands us to obey him.

So, when we fast- we fast for the sake of Allah, when we pray- we pray for the sake of Allah, when we spend in charity, it is for His sake alone, and in accordance with the Sunnah.

May Allah bless you and us all with a prosperous Ramadaan and may He make us of those who sincerely submit to Him alone as He deserves, in accordance with the Qur’an and Sunnah. May Allah abundantly bless His final prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Aameen.

We leave with you a powerful reminder from surah Al-Asr (Chapter 103 of Al-Qur’an):

jazaakumAllaahu khairan!

Keep us in duas.

If you want to be part of the ongoing charity/ sadaqah jariyah, go ahead and support us, write for us, or offer whatever you can for the cause of Allah, Get Involved

Post Event Review: Thurrock Muslims

Coffee Morning for Muslims in Thurrock! by Taleem Institute


Asalamu alaykum!

Alhamdulillah for the opportunity to serve Allah and gather in His remembrance, with our neighbours and community and a good cup of tea and tasty treats!

 

 

JazakumAllahu khairan to our guest speaker, Imam Khidir, to our host brother and to the Taleem Management, teachers, supporters, parents, students , our friends, family and everyone who attended! We won’t list all your names but appreciate all your attendance and support, may Allah accept it from you and us and keep us together always on the Truth. Wasallallahu ala nabiyyina Muhammad. Amin!

 

Top Lessons:

1- Parenting is a huge responsibility, we will be accountable before Allah , how we raised our children, if we taught them proper Islamic education and upbringing, good manners etc.

 

2-Anger is an emotion, you must learn to control. If excessive and expressed in the wrong way, you can do more harm than good.

Sheikh’s top advice from the talk:

“One moment of patience in anger is better than a 1000 regrets that follow it”

3- Be kind and gentle with your kids and discipline them appropriately. If you are always harsh and angry, they won’t be comfortable around you, and it might make them resent you when they’re older. Be merciful like the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Discipline them, especially in regards to devotion to Allah and prayer, we need to practice Islam and set a good example for the children’s benefit in both worlds.

4- Be together as an ummah, a community, help each other in the community. Support each other! (sign up to Thurrock Muslims blog here and get involved/volunteer with us here)

5-If culture conflicts with religion, hold onto the true message from Qur’an and Sunnah and leave out the questionable parts of culture.

May Allah accept it from us, forgive us and grant us an entrance in Alfirdaus. Wasallallahu ala nabiyyina Muhammad Amin

 

Thank you all soo much.

With peace
