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.
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):
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
