Imam Ibn Kathīr tells in his books that in the year 478 AH (1085 CE) a disease and plague accompanied by severe fever broke out in Iraq, Syria and Hijaz. It caused both domestic and wild animals to die, leaving the people with no meat or milk. It was accompanied by black winds and thunderbolts that brought down entire trees. The people thought that Judgement Day had arrived!
It so happened that in this same year, the Abbasid Caliph Al-Muqtadī bi Amrillāh (d. 487 AH/1094 CE) commanded that everyone strive to command the good and forbid the evil. Every musical instrument was crushed and destroyed, bottles of alcohol were smashed and spilled, and the wicked were exiled from the land.
[Al-Bidāyah wal-Nihāyah 13/216]


Could that have been the reason for Allah bringing an end to that epidemic?


 Although repentance and extra worship is a great remedy for times of calamities, many forget that commanding good and forbidding evil is as important, as calamities are caused by the uncensored spread of immorality and indecency.


-Shaykh Kamil Ahmad


اللهم أعنا على ذكرك وشكرك وحسن عبادتك
Allah-humma A’in-na ‘Ala Thikri-ka wa Shukri-ka wa Husni ‘Ebaadati-ka
 translation: O Allah help me to remember you, and thank you, and worship you in the best possible way!

Keep us in duas all! Allah guide us to the straight path always.

THE SACRED MONTHS-Ramadan in under 2 Months! Rajab


THE SACRED MONTHS – RAJAB 1441AH


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. The sacred months are 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

Please keep us in duas and support our work. Help us keep this going in sha Allah.

It was narrated from Mu’aadh ibn Jabal that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The shaytaan is the wolf of man like the wolf of sheep takes the stray sheep and the one that wanders far. Beware of division, and adhere to the jamaa’ah.” 

Narrated by Ahmad (22029); classed as hasan by the editors of al-Musnad. 

During the summer, walhamdulillah, we had some fabulous meet-ups for Muslim women and children. It was a wonderful environment, as the children played and ran around, the women benefitted from a gathering where Allah is mentioned, shared their own experiences and nibbled some snacks and fizzy refreshments!

If you weren’t there, you can benefit from the following reminders below: be sure to share with one and all!

This book was available from the help desks in Masjid Al Haram, Makkah, KSA

It is crucial that we purify our intentions purely for The One True God, Allah alone.

It is vital we hold onto The Qur’an (Final revealed book from Allah) and The Sunnah (teachings of Allah’s final prophet Muhammad upon him be peace).

It is necessary for us respect the Sahabah (righteous companions of the Prophet Muhammad upon him be peace, may Allah be pleased with them). The sahabah practiced Islam the way Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) taught it to them, the perfect and complete way.

These were some of the beautiful reminders, among socialising and snacks and helping each other out!

Jazakallah khair everyone who was a part of it and please keep us in duas and support us however you can.

Allah forgive all our errors. Allah guide us to the straight path, the correct belief, upon Al Quran and sunnah always, with sincerity in our intentions. wasallallahu alaa nabiyina Muhammad! amin

salam!

 Sayyid-al-istighfaar (The Best Form of Seeking Forgiveness) 


sayyid al istighfar

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ ، خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ ، وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ ، أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ وَأَبُوءُ بِذَنْبِي ، فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

(Transliteration of Arabic –approximate representation)

Allaahumma anta rabbiy laa ilaaha illa anta, khalaqtani wa ana ‘abduka wa ana ‘ala ‘ahdika wa wa’dika ma astata’tu. A’oodhu bika min sharri ma sana’tu, aboo’u laka bi ni’matika ‘alayya wa aboo’u laka bi dhanbi, faghfir li fa innahu laa yaghfir al-dhunooba illa anta

(English translation)

 ‘O Allaah, You are my Lord, none has the right to be worshipped except You, You created me and I am Your servant and I abide to Your covenant and promise as best I can, I take refuge in You from the evil of which I committed. I acknowledge Your favour upon me and I acknowledge my sin, so forgive me, for verily none can forgive sin except You.’

Evidence: from Sunnah sources, Hadith narration


It was narrated from Shaddaad ibn Aws (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him):

“The best of prayers for forgiveness is: Allaahumma anta rabbiy laa ilaaha illa anta, khalaqtani wa ana ‘abduka wa ana ‘ala ‘ahdika wa wa’dika ma astata’tu. A’oodhu bika min sharri ma sana’tu, aboo’u laka bi ni’matika ‘alayya wa aboo’u laka bi dhanbi, faghfir li fa innahu laa yaghfir al-dhunooba illa anta (O Allaah, You are my Lord, there is no god but You. You have created me and I am Your slave and I am keeping my promise and covenant to You as much as I can. I seek refuge with You from the evil of what I do. I acknowledge Your blessing and I acknowledge my sin, so forgive me, for there is none who can forgive sin except You).” He said: “Whoever says this during the day, believing in it firmly, and dies on that day before evening comes, he will be one of the people of Paradise, and whoever says it at night, believing firmly in it, and dies before morning comes, he will be one of the people of Paradise.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (6306)

And Allah knows best.
