IS TERRORISM A MUSLIM MONOPOLY? WATCH THIS- SHOCK ALERT

In The Name of Allah (The One True God to be worshipped).


IS TERRORISM A MUSLIM MONOPOLY? 

Dr Zakir Naik- Scholar of comparative religion & medical Dr.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfhc32Pca9s 

 

OMG… who hijacked history? Aren’t those facts surprisingly enlightening. Why are we hardly ever told of these incidents in history, of terror, genocide and anarchy at the hands of people who never identified with the Islamic faith- yes, think Spanish inquisition, Hitler, Milosevic, IRA bomb blasts, Vietnam war but to name a few… none of the perpetrators here were Muslim…

Lesson to learn– Terrorism knows no race, no religion, no region. STOP JUDGING, and LEARN THE TRUTH ABOUT ISLAM.

With peace,

Thurrock Muslims.

The Inevitable

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBQ1785Wwb8

 

Surah Al-Haaqqa
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
The Inevitable (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)! (1) What is the Inevitable? (2) And what will make you know what the Inevitable is? (3) Thamûd and ‘Ad people denied the Qâri’ah [the striking Hour (of Judgement)]! (4) As for Thamûd, they were destroyed by the awful cry! (5) And as for ‘Ad, they were destroyed by a furious violent wind! (6) Which Allâh imposed on them for seven nights and eight days in succession, so that you could see men lying overthrown (destroyed), as if they were hollow trunks of date-palms! (7) Do you see any remnants of them? (8) And Fir’aun (Pharaoh), and those before him, and the cities overthrown [the towns of the people of [Lut (Lot)] committed sin, (9) And they disobeyed their Lord’s Messenger, so He seized them with a strong punishment. (10) Verily! When the water rose beyond its limits [Nûh’s (Noah) Flood], We carried you (mankind) in the floating [ship that was constructed by Nûh (Noah)]. (11) That We might make it a (Noah’s ship)an admonition for you, and that it might be retained by the retaining ears. (12) 
Then when the Trumpet will be blown with one blowing (the first one), (13) And the earth and the mountains shall be removed from their places, and crushed with a single crushing. (14) Then on that Day shall the (Great) Event befall. (15) And the heaven will be rent asunder, for that Day it (the heaven) will be frail, and torn up. (16) And the angels will be on its sides, and eight angels will, that Day, bear the Throne of your Lord above them. (17) That Day shall you be brought to Judgement, not a secret of you will be hidden. (18) 
Then as for him who will be given his Record in his right hand will say: “Here! read my Record! (19) “Surely, I did believe that I shall meet my Account!” (20) So he shall be in a life, well-pleasing. (21) In a lofty Paradise, (22) The fruits in bunches whereof will be low and near at hand. (23) Eat and drink at ease for that which you have sent on before you in days past! (24) 
But as for him who will be given his Record in his left hand, will say: “I wish that I had not been given my Record! (25) “And that I had never known, how my Account is! (26) “Would that it had been my end (death)! (27) “My wealth has not availed me; (28) “My power (and arguments to defend myself) have gone from me!” (29) (It will be said): “Seize him and fetter him; (30) Then throw him in the blazing Fire. (31) “Then fasten him with a chain whereof the length is seventy cubits!” (32) Verily, He used not to believe in Allâh, the Most Great, (33) And urged not on the feeding of Al¬Miskîn (the poor),[] (34) So no friend has he here this Day, (35) Nor any food except filth from the washing of wounds, (36) None will eat it except the Khâti’ûn (sinners, disbelievers, polytheists). (37) 
So I swear by whatsoever you see, (38) And by whatsoever you see not, (39) That this is verily the word of an honoured Messenger [i.e. Jibril (Gabriel) or Muhammad SAW which he has brought from Allâh]. (40) It is not the word of a poet, little is that you believe! (41) Nor is it the word of a soothsayer (or a foreteller), little is that you remember! (42) This is the Revelation sent down from the Lord of the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists). (43) And if he (Muhammad SAW) had forged a false saying concerning Us (Allâh swt), (44) We surely would have seized him by his right hand (or with power and might), (45) And then we certainly would have cut off his life artery (Aorta), (46) And none of you could witheld Us from (punishing) him. (47) And verily, this (Qur’ân) is a Reminder for the Muttaqûn (pious – see V.2:2) (48) And verily, We know that there are some among you that belie (this Qur’ân). (Tafsir At-Tabarî) (49) And indeed it (this Qur’ân) will be an anguish for the disbelievers (on the Day of Resurrection).[] (50) And Verily, it (this Qur’ân) is an absolute truth with certainty[] (51) So glorify the Name of your Lord, the Most Great.[] (52)

SubhanAllah, what a striking and powerful Surah.

Ramadan Revival was a success walhamdulillah! -post event comments

Asalamu alaykum folks!!!!

In sha Allah you are all very well!

 

One month and a few days post Ramadan, and we hope we have still been keen to increase our good deeds seeking Allah’s pleasure. We are now in the sacred month Dhul Qa’dah, check out the post on sacred months! 

And guess what, good news walhamdulillah.

Our first Ramadan Muslim community event held in the last week of Ramadan 1436, on Saturday 11th July 2015, was a S U C C E S S ! walhamdulillah!

That sunny afternoon in Ramadan, it was the place to be. The atmosphere at Belmont Hall was quite special : )

It was tranquil and cosy in our gathering where Allah, Our Creator, Our Rabb, was remembered and exalted.

We had a good turnout and most of the programmes activities went as planned, not to mention the amazing lectures and iman-boosting reminders and top tips on making the most out of the last few days of Ramadan. ( : / We apologise for not being able to do all the planned activities on the day, we ran out of time due to late start as guest arrival was delayed and we had to clear up the hall before 6pm, we hope you’ll forgive us for the sake of Allah!)

Our first respected teacher who graduated from the Islamic University of Madinah, reminded us of the importance of making dua and its etiquettes. He also explained briefly the meaning of surah Al-Asr, which is such a short yet powerfully concise surah, that it is deserving of us that we learn it and strive to act upon it.

Our second respected lecturer, reminded us of the purpose of life, and the main aims of Ramadan, He gave us some practical examples of maintaining Taqwa, which is what we aim to achieve everyday, in Ramadan and beyond.

Our journey is to Allah, so let us run back to Him! Bismillah!

Alhamdulillah it was Allah who enabled us to gather to remember Him in a tiny hall in Grays, where the local muslims were able to get together and unite for His sake, and experience a Ramadan Revival.

Walhamdulillah Allah helped us through, the easy times and the hard times, and He deserves all praise no matter what, as He is the Most wise.

Cupcakes, puff-puff, pasties, dates, crisps and drinks where generously donated by our lovely organisers and volunteers.

 

A big jazakallah khair to every single one of the special amazing volunteers and our families, those whose names will be mentioned and those who wish to remain anonymous or have not been mentioned by name. Forgive me if I omitted anything, even if i haven’t mentioned it here, may Allah accept all your and our efforts and as long as Allah appreciates it, then that is sufficient walhamdulillah!

Jazakallah khair to ukhty Azeezah for pitching the idea and intention and communicating with co-leader and other volunteer sisters, and for leading the project, running around calling up people to attend. Also jazakAllah to her colleague for helping get our tafsir speaker last minute due to sudden unavailability of our previously scheduled speaker! JazakAllah khair to our lecturers and Sheikh’s, their presence was greatly appreciated.

Jazakallah khair to sister Shakirah for booking the hall and sorting out the catering and running around on the day, and for being so enthusiastic, and being a good example of time management.

Jazakallah khair to our sister who made the awesome posters and helping distribute them and the feedback forms and advertising the blog and helping out on the day throughout.

JazakAllah to the sister who kept the kids busy, and jazakAllah to her husband who hosted the speakers and the event.

And JazakAllah to everyone who helped on the day, and of course a big JazakAllah khair to all of our special attendees and their families, we appreciate your cooperation and hope you will collaborate with us to launch future amazing projects for the sake of Allah, to reunite the Muslim ummah in our town and beyond! JazakAllah those who helped market the event and our menfolk who patiently and tirelessly went to the mosque and dished out posters and informed the imam of the event and got his support and approval. Jazakallah to the sheikhs & lecturers who attended despite their busy Ramadan schedules, and for helping us to unite the local ummah and benefitting us with their erudition, Jazakallah for our families patience in allowing us to pursue this for the sake of Allah. And may Allah make us sincere and help us to remember Him always upon the Qur’an and Sunnah. Wasallallahu alaa nabiyinaa muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Ameen

Wasalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh!

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

Bismillah!

Asalamu ‘alaykum amazing individuals

So we’re halfway through Shawwal 1436, it’s been two weeks 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 15 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 Who is 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 week.

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

RAMADAN ROUND THE CORNER!

Bismillah

Asalamu alaykum all, Muslims in Thurrock, Basildon, Grays and worldwide. In Sha Allah everything’s good.

Can you believe it’s already one week into Sha’ban 1436, the month preceding Ramadan!

May Allah help us prepare and witness many Ramadan’s in total submission to Him alone and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon His final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. ameen.

Here’s a short video on some beautiful dua’s and words of repentance we can make.

We are human, so we make mistakes and sin. And we sin, small or big sins, once or repeatedly. But don’t despair of Allah’s mercy. Allah is The Most Merciful, The Oft-Pardoning, The Perpetual Forgiver, so never think your sins are to big to be forgiven! Allah accepts us when we run back to Him sincerely repentant, so may Allah make us sincerely repent! ameen!

Oh, and do check out the previous post of the best form of seeking forgiveness,the Sheikh repeats that dua in Arabic in the video below, so be sure to listen!
