IMPORTANT:

Please take a few moments for the sake of Allah to discover the obligations, sunnahs and etiquettes of Eid-ul-adhaa:

The etiquettes of Eid, the takbeer etc.

Udhiyah- animal of an’aam class (either sheep,camel, cow etc.) offered as a sacrifice as an act of worship to Allah, The Self-Sufficient Provider.

HOW TO PRAY EID PRAYER HERE

Some top tips (see above links for references from Qur’an and sunnah):

1- Do make an arrangement immediately to offer the udhiyah, if you have not done so already. You can do it with various Islamic charities in the UK, in sha Allah. Let us offer sacrificial animals in obedience to Allah, following the way of His final prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Let’s share this bounty with our brothers and sisters around the world, in sha Allah!

2- Keep pronouncing the Takbeer, this is a great Sunnah! Remind each other! (starts on 1st Dhul Hijjah until sunset on the last of the days of Tashreeq, i.e. 13th Dhul Hijjah. Also read the takbeer after the obligatory prayers, starting from after Fajr on the 9th of Dhul Hijjah to after Asr on 13th of Dhul Hijjah.)

The Takbeer is:

Allahu Akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaha illAllah, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillaahilHamd. (Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, There is no true god worthy of worship, except Allah. Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great and all praise be to Allah.)

الله اكبر، الله اكبر، الله اكبر، لا إله الا الله، الله اكبر، الله اكبر، ولله الحمد

3-Have ghusl in the morning before going out to pray

4- If possible, make an effort to delay eating until after the Eid salah and eat from the udhiyah if you offered a sacrifice.

5- Men should go out wearing their finest clothes, perfume etc.When going out or in the presence of non-mahram men, women should avoid perfume. Women can wear their fine clothes so long as it is concealed by a full and complete, unadorned Hijab. When in female only environments, or among their mahram relatives, women may adorn themselves appropriately. My dear readers, let us remind ourselves that obedience to Allah takes precedence over all else.

6- Pray the Eid prayer in congregation

7- Congratulate one another! Taqabbal Allahu minnaa wa minkum (May Allah accept (the fast and worship) from us and from you)

8- Go out to pray one route, and return by another. Check out the links above for more!

9-Keep up with the abundant dhikr, this last of the ten best days of the year!!!

say: Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, wa laa ilaha illAllah, wallahuakbar!

Let’s send salutations on the final prophet of Allah, Muhammad Sallallahu alayhi wasallam!

Jazakallah khair everyone who helped organise, and those who informed us, May Allah elevate you  us and our families.

Pray for us and share for the sake of Allah!

May Allah forgive us, for He is the Perpetual Forgiver and may Allah guide us to unite upon belief in His Oneness. Allahumma salli wasallim alaa nabiyinaa muhammad salllallahu alayhi wasallam. ameen

Ramadan 1441 is here!

Asalamu alaykum


RAMADAN 1441AH


Dear readers, it is with great joy that we announce that Thursday night 23 April 2020 marks the first night of Ramadan 1441AH and the first day of Ramadan 1441AH will be Friday 24 April 2020.

(Please download accurate prayer/Ramadan for Grays timetable via telegram bot on islam21c.com  https://t.me/PrayerTimesCalculatorBot/ )

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “When the month of Ramadan comes, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of the (Hell) Fire are closed, and the devils are chained.”[Sahih Bukhari]

JazakAllah khair

Top Tips: (including reminders from Sheikh Asim Khan, London and Dr Sajid Umar, KSA)

1- Purify our intention for Allah alone.

2- Make a plan- The sahabah Radi Allahu anhum prepared for Ramadan months in advance. DON’T LOSE HOPE, you can renew your intention now and start an action plan. Maybe set yourself to read 5 verses a day of Qur’an and gradually increase. Be positive and be proactive! If you want to complete Qur’an in Ramadan, read 20 pages a day. And try to read the translation of Qur’an in your language.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “(Allah said), ‘Every good deed of Adam’s son is for him except fasting; it is for Me. and I shall reward (the fasting person) for it.’ Verily, the smell of the mouth of a fasting person is better to Allah than the smell of musk.” [Sahih Bukhari]

2- Cut back on the greasy foods and unhealthy diet. Eat healthy, and balance your meals, with carbohydrates, fibre and protein. Add some healthy fats and dairy too. Moderation is key. Stick to the sunnah regarding food!

3-Practice self-restraint. Guard our tongues and limbs from wrongdoing.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should talk what is good or keep quiet, and whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should not hurt (or insult) his neighbor; and whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should entertain his guest generously.”Bukhari 

4-Be strong and grateful for Islam and the favour of witnessing Ramadan to get closer to Allah. We will have struggles, jobs, exams, tasks that we have to face with strength. Fasting will not hinder us, fasting sincerely for Allah will help us attain success in this life and the next.

5- Muslims are diverse, Allah created us in different colours and backgrounds, with different languages, so we may know one another. The honourable harbour Taqwa (God-conciousness/ awareness of Allah). We are from Adam and Eve (upon them be peace) at the end of the day, so let’s try to get together in Ramadan and revive the idea of community in Islam, which does not discriminate by race or other factors. Let us try to reunite our families too, for the sake of Allah.

6-Increase your prayers, not just quantity, but quality, learn about the Salah and the meanings of what you recite.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying regarding Ramadan, “Whoever prayed at night in it (the month of Ramadan) out of sincere Faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven.” [Sahih Bukhari]

7-Calculate your Zakaah (Zakat- obligatory poor-due charity, 2.5% of your wealth given each lunar year) and pay it in a timely manner, as best as you can. Zakaah is a primary pillar in Islam, which we must not neglect. For more on Zakaah, take a look https://www.nzf.org.uk/Knowledge 

8- Make sure to have the intention to fast (intend in your heart) at night well before the Fajr! Check out our posts on what to avoid in Ramadan and what breaks the fast, and general advice on Ramadan/fasting.

9-Download the most accurate prayer timetable in sha Allah, click here: https://t.me/PrayerTimesCalculatorBot/ 

10- Ease in, burn into your routine, don’t burn out.  So start small, maybe five pages a day to begin with of Qur’an and build up, if you haven’t read in a long time.

11- Focus on quality not just quantity. Focus on perfecting your tajweed/ reciting Qur’an correctly like the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him taught us. (CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION ON TAJWEED AND QUR’AN LESSONS)

12-Be productive, set realistic goals for yourself, based on your habits. So if you want to start giving more charity, first make sure you have done the obligatory Zakat, and then try to make little and often payments of sadaqah, or whatever you like, but measure it so you know when you are slacking.

13-Make a strategy/schedule for yourself. Be pragmatic, as the lockdown due to covid19 means we face different challenges being at home all day,  think constant distractions… Take note men, this is the life of many a housewife! Please be kind to each other, ladies help your husbands to make time with the family, men help your women around the home. If men are working, ladies advise the children to be considerate. If mum needs a break, husbands spend some time with the kids.

14-Set a time where the family sit and learn Islam, BALANCE is key.

15-Be optimistic, like our prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Yes covid19 will change the way we operate socially in Ramadan, but trust Allah and be strong, we will get through this together in sha Allah.

We remind ourselves before we remind you, our beloved, dearest readers. Jazakumallahu khairan.

May Allah, The Most Gracious Lord of all creation shower upon us His blessings, may He make us successful in this month and beyond, may He keep us sincere for Him alone, and may He help us adhere to the sunnah of His final prophet muhammad peace be upon him. And may Allah forgive all our sins, and grant us firmness on the guidance, may He reward us, and may He make us true believers, and those who truly worship and serve none but Him alone, The One, The Irresistable Creator, for He is The All-Powerful. May Allah grant us taqwa and nearness to Him and a high place in Jannat al firdaus with the prophets alayhimusalam. May Allah abundantly bless His final prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Ameen

Post event review: Coffee Morning for Muslims in Thurrock! by Taleem Institute

Post Event Review: Thurrock Muslims

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
