Reminders from Ramadan Revival 2016- Special Thanks and Comments


Bismillah

Asalamu alaykum

Alhamdulillah in June 2016 we held a Ramadan Revival Event to bring the community together, to feed the fasting and to rejuvenate our faith, knowledge and obedience of our Creator, Allah.

The event was held in Chafford Hundred, and our guests hailed from various towns, including Basildon, Grays, Romford and Leyton. Our guest speaker, graduate of Madinah university, Sheikh Muawiyah, touched on several pertinent subjects to prepare us for the last ten nights of Ramadan and beyond.

A big jazakAllah khair to all those who participated and helped to organise it and spread the word about it and thank you to all those who cooperated. A special thanks to our families and our dear Shaykh Muawiyah, as well as our Dawah brothers, our hosts and co-ordinators and our volunteers. JazakAllah khair to our attendees for taking the time to come and benefit from the gathering where Allah was mentioned, may Allah place it on our scale of good deeds.  May Allah grant us all the best of both worlds amin

Please accept our sincere apologies for any shortfall on the day, for any expectations we were unable to meet, and for any misunderstandings.Forgive us for the sake of Allah, since being human, as the son/daughter of Adam, we err. Yet the door for repentance is open. May Allah forgive us for He is the Oft-Forgiving, Oft-Pardoning. We hope you enjoyed the talks and the food! Keep us in your dua’s!

Alhamdulillah, we were privileged to spend the afternoon with you all, and hope in sha Allah you will join us for future events.

 

With love for the sake of Allah,

Conditions of Hijab – Top 8 Criteria

Bismillah


Conditions of Hijab– Top 8 Criteria


Did you know that Hijab doesn’t have to be black in colour, it’s not only for beautiful women, and it can be worn by non-Arabian Muslims.

See the previous post “What is Hijab”

The following conditions must be met for Hijab to be complete. Muslim women endeavour to keep up to this standard in obedience to Allah.

  1. The Muslim woman’s garments must cover her entire body, head to toe.
  2. The clothing must not be transparent. It should be opaque so hair and skin and whatever is beneath is not exposed.
  3. The clothing must be loose-fitting, not revealing the body shape.
  4. The clothing must not be perfumed.
  5. The clothing must not be an imitation of the opposite gender.
  6. The clothing must not be glamorous and attractive. The purpose is to cover the adornment!
  7. The clothing should be free of symbols of other religions (such as crosses etc.) and should not contain images of animate beings.
  8. The clothing must not be one of fame and vanity.

 

It’s worth noting that Muslim men also have to cover their bodies, but to a lesser extent, since males are physically different to women, and the women is adornment! People generally love to admire female beauty, studies and research point to that fact, so its more apt that women cover their bodies to a greater extent.

 

The intention behind observing Hijab, is an obedience to the command of the Supreme Creator, The One True God, Allah. Muslim men and Muslim women observe the etiquette of Hijab in clothing and conduct, out of faith and God-Consciousness,

 

Allah says in the Qur’an:

‘Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what they do. {30}

And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed. {31}

[Qur’an, 24:30-31]

And Allah says in the Qur’an:

“O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” [Qur’an 33:59]

NOW’S THE TIME! – Fasting in SHAWWAL after Ramadan

Bismillah!


NOW’S THE TIME! – Fasting in SHAWWAL after Ramadan


Asalamu ‘alaykum amazing individuals

So we’re 8 days into Shawwal 1437, it’s been a week post Ramadan. How are you feeling iman-wise?


olives n breadPerhaps we’ve slacked a little on our Qur’an recitation regime…

Perhaps we’re not praying much optional prayers…

Perhaps we’ve fallen into the same bad habits pre-Ramadan…

Feeling regretful? That’s the first step to change. Let us acknowledge our faults, and seek Allah’s forgiveness. Let us resolve to change for the better.

WE STILL HAVE A CHANCE!

Let’s revive the Ramadan atmosphere by increasing our ibadah, by quality and quantity in sha Allah!

We have around 21 days left to make a positive difference!


Top Tips to revive our iman (faith, in statement and action) after Ramadan


 

  1. Let us make more istighfar, seek Allah’s forgiveness, saying Astaghfirullah, SubhanAllahi wabihamdi, Astaghfirullaha wa atoobo ilayhi, and this amazing dua called sayyid al istighfar you MUST learn (click here!)
  2. Strive to pray the five prayers on time
  3. Strive to spend in charity
  4. Do good and remind others to do good and keep away from and forbid evil, trying hard to practice what we preach.
  5. Read more Qur’an at least a page or so a day, try to read some tafsir or translation too.
  6. Have good character/perfecting it
  7. Make someone smile : )
  8. More remembrance of Allah, subhanaAllah, walhamdulillah, wallahuakbar, wa la ilaha ilallah! Because it’s all about Allah, Al-Wahid, alone!
  9. Do sunnah acts, optional prayers
  10. Fast 6 days of Shawwal! Here’s an awesome opportunity…

Abu Ayyub (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “He who observes As-Saum (the fasts) in the month of Ramadan, and also observes As-Saum for six days in the month of Shawwal, it is as if he has observed As-Saum for the whole year.”

[Muslim].

Subhanallah, WOW! : o

Narrated Abu Ayyub:

The Prophet (ﷺ) as saying: If anyone fasts during Ramadan, then follows it with six days in Shawwal, it will be like a perpetual fast. 

Reference : Sunan Abi Dawud 2433, sahih Al-Albani

ALLAHUAKBAR!

Don’t forget to make up what you owe of this Ramadan first (if any obligatory ones are outstanding e.g. ladies during their days off -menses etc.). We must complete Ramadan before following it with the Shawwal fasts, in sha Allah, as the Imam of Masjid an Nabawi reminded us in the Friday Sermon last year in Shawwal.

What an amazing sunnah, let’s try to fulfil this in sha Allah and tell others too, for the sake of Allah. Alhamdulillah. May Allah grant us the ability to serve Him according to Qur’an and Sunnah,with sincerity and sound intentions. wasallallahu ala nabiyinaa Muhammad. ameen ya Rab al alameen!

By the way this is a reminder to me before it is to you, so do comment below on anything you may want to add! May Allah forgive us for any errors! ameen
