THURROCK MUSLIM COMMUNITY- WELCOME MESSAGE -THURROCKMUSLIMS.COM


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

ARE YOU AFRAID? Unite against Anti-Islam hate crime- Thurrock Muslims


ARE YOU AFRAID?

Unite against Anti-Islam hate crime- Thurrock Muslims


Asalamu alaykum.

Peace.

As you may be aware, a hateful campaign aimed at terrorising the Muslim community has been circulating recently in the UK. It is unfortunate that far-right sentiment is creeping up on us.

Everyone should work to create a peaceful, safe and productive society. As Muslims, our purpose to do such is especially important, since we live in submission to Allah alone, and know that Islam encourages us to benefit others, spread goodness and remove evil for our communities to prosper.

*Scroll down for duas seeking protection from Allah*

 

We shouldn’t have to feel intimidated or threatened with verbal or physical abuse on account of adhering to Islam.The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was heavily targeted by the bigots and tyrants among the Arab pagan tribes. Being the prophet of mercy, Muhammad (peace be upon him), refused to abandon his mission and refused to stoop to the lowest levels of his vicious opponents.

Through his patient perserverance in calling to Allah’s Oneness, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) successfuly denounced the vices prevelant among his people. His bravery, patience, mercy and genuine concern for his people softened their hearts. Meanwhile, the aggressive opponents enforced various boycotts and brutal torture campaigns, even death threats and a plot to murder The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, eventually driving him out of his birthtown, Makkah. However, when the true message of Islam reached the hearts of the masses, their characters transformed dramatically for the better and injustices were successfully eradicated. The tyrants and criminals were eventually losing the battle, and Prophet Muhammad gracefully conquered Makkah, transforming it into the most peaceful city in the world.

 

Remember these inspirational quotes from the Book of Allah, The Qur’an:

Yes, if you remain patient and conscious of Allah and the enemy come upon you [attacking] in rage, your Lord will reinforce you with five thousand angels having marks [of distinction]

[Qur’an 3:125]

So if they believe in the same as you believe in, then they have been [rightly] guided; but if they turn away, they are only in dissension, and Allah will be sufficient for you against them. And He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

[Qur’an 2:137]

But if they turn away, [O Muhammad], say, “Sufficient for me is Allah ; there is no deity except Him. On Him I have relied, and He is the Lord of the Great Throne.”

[Qur’an 9:129]

 

Be brave, stand strong. Allah is our Protector. Defend yourself and stand up for others too.

The prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him ) said:

…’Allah will help a person so long as he is helping his brother.”

Narrated by Muslim (2699). ‘

 

The haters want us to fall into their trap and spread hate, terror and violence like they do. As Muslims, we should be the better person and treat everyone with justice.

*Dua’s and ways of seeking protection from Allah and tips to keep safe*

1- Always seek refuge in Allah from the accursed devil.

2-Pray 5 Salah/prayers on time and read the supplications afterwards

3-Read all morning and evening supplications from Qur’an and Sunnah

4-Read Ayatul-Kursi, Surah Baqarah 2:255

5-Read the last 3 surahs of Qur’an, surah 112, surah 113, surah 114 (Ikhlaas, Falaq and Naas)

6- Put your complete trust in Allah alone, none can allow or prevent harm or benefit to befall us but Allah ,The Most Wise. Allah is the Most Powerful, The All-Capable, The Protector, Our Rabb. Make plenty of dua, ask Allah to grant you and everyone safety and protection, don’t forget our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world.

7- Read the dua’s from the Sunnah of Muhammad peace be upon him, when waking and sleeping, when you leave the house, before entering the toilet, before and after eating, when you fear harm, when feeling anxious… (get hold of the book Fortress of the Muslim or see this link)

8- Continue to practice Islam, inwardly and outwardly. Be brave, observe full Hijab, keep the beard and attend Mosque. Life and death is only in Allah’s control.

9-Look out for each other. Stronger people defend the weaker ones. Sisters try not go out alone. Stick together in groups.

10- Let authorities know if you sense danger. Call 999 for police for emergencies or 101 and don’t hesitate to report crimes.

11- Contact MAMA (Measuring anti-Muslim attacks), let them know about any anti-Islam hate crime encounters.

12- Educate people. Be the best Muslim in your manners, share the Truth, postivity and goodness with everyone. Appreciate those who refuse to delve into terror and anarchy. Thank you to those of you who denounce bigotry and hate crimes, including Islamophobic campaigns.

If you or someone else is genuinley in danger, take action and call 999 , that’s what the police are there for- to help stop crime.  You can also call 101 for non-urgent police calls. Let MAMA know too.

For the haters, just chill out! Hate and anger aren’t going to solve anything. Talk to us with a good intention, you’ll find we want good for everyone, including you.

Peace.

Thurrock Muslims
