If not now, when?

If not now, when?


thurrockmuslims.com logo

Everyone has had some sort of trouble or difficulty in life. Trials can bring out the best or worst in you.

But for the sincere seekers, trials may be the turning point in your life.

Sickness, loss of loved ones, decrease in wealth, whatever the issue…it makes us question, why am I here in the first place?

There’s got to be more to life than making money, looking good, having a family, being famous…

Isn’t it time we rethought our priorities?

Ramadan just passed.

Some of us passed before Ramadan.

Alhamdulillah we have been blessed with the opportunity to change, before it’s too late.

Are we trying our best to pray the 5 daily Salah on time?

Are we making efforts to ensure we eat and earn Halal?

Are we observing Hijab internally and externally?

Are we restraining our desires keeping only to the permissible?

Are we guarding ourselves from what Allah doesn’t like, shunning all the major sins?

Are we trying our best to do what Allah loves, and fulfilling the obligations?

Are we trying to maintain TAQWA- GOD-CONCIOUSNESS?

 

وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ –

Qur’an 51:56

And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone).

This reminder is for us before anyone else. How does the above apply to me? Because none of us are perfect.

But we have a Most Merciful, Most Forgiving, Ever-Living Master- Allah, The One True God worthy of worship.

 

Alhamdulillah for the realisation.

It’s still not too late to change our ways.

But we must be sincere, and change for the better now.

Because if not now, when?

 

May Allah help us to serve Him alone, make us sincere and successful, and the people of paradise. Allah bestow blessings upon His last prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Amin

LAYLAT-UL-QADR! It might just be tonight! HOW TO SPEND THE NIGHT

 


LAYLAT-UL-QADR!

It might just be tonight!

HOW TO SPEND THE NIGHT-


asalamu alaykum!

 

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Verily, We have sent it (this Qur’ân) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree)[] (1) And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is? (2) The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allâh in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months) (3) Therein descend the angels and the Rûh [Jibril (Gabriel)] by Allâh’s Permission with all Decrees, (4) (All that night), there is Peace (and Goodness from Allâh to His believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn.[] (5)

[QUR’AN CHAPTER 97, ENGLISH INTERPRETATION]

 

It’s toooooo special to miss!!!!!

Quick tips:

 

  • And if you are a lady on your menses, you can ibadah other than prayer: see this

 

  • Some reminders from our respected lecturers in the Ramadan Revival, this night, increase in Qiyam (standing in prayer at night), reading Qur’an, making dua- lots of it, pour our hearts out to Allah! We can also give zakah if one lunar year passed on the wealth which reached the nisaab, and do other good deeds, like istighfar (seeking forgiveness from Allah –click to see amazing this dua) sadaqah, reminding each other of Allah, dhikr- remembering Allah, salat and salam on rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam!

 

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:  “Whoever stays up and prays on Laylat al-Qadr out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.” Agreed upon.

Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught ‘Aisha radi Allahu anhaa what to say on laylat-ul-qadr:

laylqadr dua

Transliteration: Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun, tuHibul’afwa fa’fu ‘annee 

Let’s revive the sunnah and flee to Allah! please remember us in your duas, and like and share this in sha Allah!

May Allah grant us sincerity, and success and jannat al firdaus, May Allah guide and have mercy on us, forgive all of us who believe and admit us to  paradise, by His mercy. Allah abundantly bless rasoollullah. ameen

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

THE SACRED MONTHS-Ramadan in under 2 Months! Rajab


THE SACRED MONTHS – RAJAB 1440AH


Asalamu alaykum dear readers.

We are now in the sacred month of Rajab walhamdulillah and  we would like to remind ourselves about the importance of the four sacred months in Islam. Rajab is the 7th month of the Islamic calendar. They are Rajab, Dhul Qad’ah, Dhul Hijjah and Muharram, the 7th, 11th, 12th and 1st month of the Islamic Hijri calander respectively. (see Surah Tawbah, Qur’an chapter 9 verse 36).

 

Watch this video on what to do in Rajab and other sacred months, Sheikh Assim Al Hakim explains:

(We should be extra careful not to sin, all the time, but particularly in the sacred months, and avoid aggression…also a word on Isra’ wal Miraaj and religious innovations/bid’ah…and the importance of holding on to the Sunnah of Rasoolullah peace be upon him)

 

May Allah forgive us, be merciful to us and guide us, for He is the Most Gracious the Most Merciful, The Ever-Relenting. May Allah enable us to witness and observe many Ramadans in His obedience, with sincerity and strength. May Allah unite us in jannat al firdaus. Allah bless His final messenger Muhammad ibn Abdillah in abundance. Amin
