September 22, 2011

Khadija Bint Khuwalylid a good mother and close to perfection,

Will be raised with the prophet on the Day of Resurrection.

.

Sawdah Bint Zamah married the Prophet when he was 52.

Looked after his children and her love grew.

.

Aisha Bint Abu Bakar married at nine.

She had a lovely nature and was very kind.

Intelligence was her key, and she was wife number three.

.

Hafsa Bint Umar known as the memoriser of the Qur’an.

Kind and soft hearted, in the battle of Badr her first husband was martyred.

.

Zainab Bint Khuzaimah, Mother of the Poor.

Her husband Ubaydah bin al Harith was martyred, this shows she had been married before.

Her heart filled with kindness and compassion,

She gave away money to help others with passion.

8 months after marriage she passed away,

Buried near Khadija in Jannat-al-Baqi and still remembered today.

.

Umm Salamah known for her strong personality

Beautiful and wise this is the reality.

.

Zainab Bint Jahsh while married to the Prophet,

The verses of hijab were revealed.

For all the beauty of the women to be concealed.

.

Jawariyah Bint Al-Harith daughter of the opposition leader, full of courage to ask for freedom

The Prophet liked this and she was proposed to.

Guiding people to Islam as she was supposed to.

.

Umm Habibah married to Ubaydullah Bin Jahsh accepted Islam while her father did not

Her husband converted to Christianity and he tried to convince her too.

She remained steadfast on the path that was true.

The Prophet heard about this as word spread fast

He wanted to marry her and he did at last.

.

Saffiya Bint Huyeyy her father the leader of the Jewish tribe

They wanted to kill the Prophet so they tried and tried.

This was a failure and Saffiya married the Prophet.

No one could get in the way not even her father could stop it.

.

Maymuna Bint Al-Harith accepted Islam before hijrah took place

She was known as one of the believing sisters and full or grace.

Called the symbol of goodness, she narrated 76 hadiths

Last wife of the prophet, to the people of Makkah she brought peace.

May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon them all

YM’s Performance: ‘M’ is for Mohammed

September 18, 2011

Our beloved Prophet who always spoke clearly, he would always smile and laugh and tell jokes that were only true.

.
Our merciful Prophet who would always put Allah first, who would pray so much that his legs would start hurting and who would cry whilst reciting the Qur’an.

Our beloved Prophet who would walk faster than everyone else, whose hair was neither curly nor straight, and even in old age only 14 white hairs were counted upon it.

 .

Our merciful Prophet who would wear white clothing and only the top button of his shirts remained unfastened, our Prophet who owned only four pairs of shoes throughout his entire lifetime.

.
He was our last Prophet, Prophet Mohammed (SAW) the best role model to Muslims everywhere.

Eid Card Campaign

November 11, 2010

Yet another Eid will pass with hundreds of Muslims brothers and sisters behind bars. Show them they are not forgotten by sending an Eid card or message to them.

The Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his needs; whoever brought his brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen him on the Day of Resurrection.” [Bukhari]

What to Do

  • Buy/make an eid card or write a letter of support to a Muslim prisoner.
  • A list of prisoners can be found here.
  • Advice on how to write a letter can be found here.
  • For more information please email: deen_leeds[at]live.co.uk

Ramadhan Projects 2010

September 20, 2010

The start of Ramadhan signals an increase in activity over here at Deen. Last year we managed to organise a number of different projects and alhamdulillah this year we again kept ourselves busy. Here is a brief summary of what’s been going on this Ramadhan.

Ramadhan Packs and Food Drive

Alhamdulillah we managed to continue some of last years projects with the distribution of 17 Ramadhan packs to Asylum Seekers in Sheffield  as well as a food drive for M25 Housing & Support Group. Jazakum’Allah khayr to the YM’s for their support!

Cards to Aafia

As Muslims we should always remember the plight of our brothers and sisters around the world, in particular the case of Aafia Siddiqui who is currently imprisoned in the USA. A number of postcards (from JFAC) were send to her, with Eid greetings and messages of support. A shout out to JFAC for their great work.

* Sister Aafia is due to be sentenced on 23rd September. Please, please remember her in your duas.

Young Muslimahs Iftar

The Young Muslimahs annual Iftar, a chance for all the girls to get together and open their fast.  They also wrote postcards for sister Aafia, with some very heartfelt messages!

Pakistan Floods Appeal Fundraising

We’ve all seen the devastating affects of the floods in Pakistan. Alhamdulillah many Deen members were involved in various fundraising efforts, from spontaneous bake sales and car boots, to fundraising at the masjid. In total we managed to raise almost £1,000!

Also jazakum’Allah khayr to all those who volunteered/contributed to/attended the fundraiser organised by CVS. A massive £2,500 was raised!

* Remember that the people of Pakistan are still in dire need; therefore please continue to donate generously!

A big jazakum’Allah khayr to all those who have supported our work. May Allah accept it from you and us!

Project: Revive a Sunnah

July 7, 2010

Over the coming weeks and months I will Insha’Allah post up a forgotten/neglected Sunnah for us all to start implementing. Every Friday I will post up a new Sunnah giving us a week to introduce it to our daily routines.

The Importance of the Sunnah

It goes without saying that our only way to Jannah is to follow the footsteps of our beloved Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). He came to teach us or deen and is the most perfect example, as Allah says:

لَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِمَنْ كَانَ يَرْجُو اللَّهَ وَالْيَوْمَ الآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا

Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting) Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah much. [Surat al-Ahzab, 33:21]

Reviving the Sunnah

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever revives an aspect of my Sunnah that is forgotten after my death, he will have a reward equivalent to that of the people who follow him, without it detracting in the least from their reward.” [al-Tirmidhi]

Action Points

  • Drop by the blog every Friday and start reviving a Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). Share your thoughts, comments and encouragement for others.
  • If you would like to see a particular Sunnah posted you can email me and Insha’Allah it will posted up – earning you lots of reward.
  • Make intention for these Sunnahs to become part of your daily routine, not just for a week or two, but for life!
