Take to Fasting, there is nothing like it

July 30, 2009


Abu Umaamah said: “I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, tell me of an action by which I may enter Paradise.’ He said: ‘Take to Fasting, there is nothing like it.’”

[An-Nasaa’ee, Ibn Hibbaan, Al-Haakim, Saheeh]


Ramadhan Prep – Fast Ayyam al-Beed

July 29, 2009

ayyam al beed

It is mustahabb (recommended) to fast three days each month, especially the 13th, 14th and 15th of the month which are known as ayyam al-beed (the white days).

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: My close friend [the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلّم) ] advised me to do three things which I will not give up until I die: fasting three days of each month, praying Duha and going to sleep after Witr. [Bukhari and Muslim].

It was narrated that Abu Dharr said: The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلّم) said to me: “If you fast any part of the month, then fast the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.” [Tirmidhi].

Memorising Qur'an

As salaamu alaykum

So it’s been a while since the blog has been updated. Apologies for that.

Just to let you know what’s been happening and what we have planned:

Young Muslimahs Performance. Alhamdulillah it went brilliantly. Well done to the YMs girls. I know me and baji Nazia got a bit stressed out with you lot, but seriously you did us proud! You guys are professionals masha’Allah.

Would also like to say jazakum’Allah khayr to all those who attended. I hope that you had an enjoyable day. And also a special mention to everyone who helped out on the day. Jazakum’Allah khayr.

Ramadhan prep. The sahabah would prepare for Ramadhan months in advance. They would make dua to Allah to forgive them and pray that when Ramadhan came they were in the best of Iman.

If we want to make the best of this Ramadhan, then we need to start preparing for it. Not tomorrow, not next week… right now!

Over the next couple of weeks the blog will be updated with posts relating to Ramadhan. Tips and suggestions on how to make the most our time and how we can work together to prepare for the month so that when it comes we don’t waste a single second!

Juzz Amma Challenge is drawing to an end.  To those who stuck to it to the very end (and let me tell you there weren’t many), may Allah reward you guys immensely. You’re the ones Allah chose to memorise His book. Whether you completed the challange or not, remember this is the begining of your journey. What brilliant preperation for Ramadhan. Stick to it, aim high, surah by surah, juzz by juzz until you have memorised the whole Qur’an (bi’idhnillah!).
