The Significance of Ashura

It has been reported in both Bukhari and Muslim from Ibn Abbas (Allah be pleased with him), that, “When the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him) reached Medina, he found the Jews fasting the Day of `Ashura’, so he asked them, ‘What is this day you are fasting?’ They said, ‘This is a tremendous day. Allah saved Musa and his people on this day and drowned Pharaoh and his people. Musa fasted it out of thanks, so we fast it too.’ The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him) said, ‘And we are more deserving of Musa than you are.’ So he fasted this day, and ordered that it be fasted.” [Bukhari (2004) and Muslim (1130)]

DRAMA Caused by PANORAMA

Here we go again... another timely attack on Muslims and their beliefs... The Pano’D’rama programme criticised what was being taught in Muslim schools and attacked Muslims for teaching their children aspects of Shariah, which included the unsurprising view that homosexuality is a sin.

Do they want us to teach our children that Islam allows homosexuality? Do they want us to give up our beliefs and accept values which contradict Islam? Why are there so many programmes attacking Muslims? Is the Government really concerned about the education of Muslims?

“But I’m a Youth... Why should I be bothered?” How should we view this and how should we respond? Come and find out the answers this Sunday. Click on image for more details

(16: 121-123)

Ministry of Dawah will be hosting a two part series on our beloved Prophet Ibrahim [as]. Come and find out some of his stories:

The Life of Umar ibn Abdul Aziz (ra)

When Umar ibn Abdul Aziz (ra) became caliph, he wrote to the great scholar Hasan al-Basree (ra) asking him to describe the attributes of a just Imaam, and Hasan replied:

“Know, commander of Believers, that God has made the just Imaam the prop of every learner, the straightener of every deviator, the reform of all corrupt, the strength of all weak, The justice of all oppressed, the refuge of all who are pitied. The just Imaam, O commander of Believers, is like a herdsman, solicitous for the camels he tends, desiring the sweetest pasture for them, driving them away from any dangerous grazing place, protecting them from beast of prey, and shielding them from the harms of heat and cold.”

COME & FIND OUT WHAT KIND OF MAN HE WAS!

The Satanic Whispers

We have just left the blessed month of Ramadhan where the shaitan was chained. Now that the Shaitan's back, he'll be more than eager to catch up on the month he lost! Shaitan only whispers and those who do not understand the tactics of the Shaitan we’ll fall by making flimsy excuses and justify their wrongs!

But the believers who are aware of the works of Shaitan know that he is weak and his ways are weak as Allah SWT say “Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan” [Surah An-Nisa (4): Ayah 76] and “As for My slaves, you (Shaitan) have no power over any of them, save such of the sinners that follow you” [Surah Al-Hijr (15): Ayah 42]

So if you’re planning to use Shaitan as an excuse on the Day of Judgement... Don’t bother!

RAMADHAN A MONTH OF VIRTUES, VICTORY & CHANGE Series

The holy month of Ramadan is approaching it is a time when the gates of Jahannam will be locked the shayateen will be chained and our Lord Allah (swt) will open the doors of Jannah. The seventy thousand veils between Allah (swt) and his slave will be removed and for once the Ummah will rediscover the bonds of unity and come together to observe the rituals of Islam. The month contains within it a night which is better than a thousand months and endless rewards.

The month is diverse, it offers us the opportunity to seek the good deeds, it reminds us of our glorious past as and it offers us a chance to set upon a path to eternal salvation. With this in mind and with the grace of Allah (swt) we have assembled a series of five talks:

08th Aug - Reaping The Rewards
15th Aug - Mercy, Forgiveness and Salvation
22nd Aug - When Legends Were Made
29th Aug - Everlasting Bliss
05th Sep - Night Of Power: When Allah (swt) Addressed Mankind

THE BLIND FOLLOWERS

On the authority of `Adi Ibn Hatim (ra), it is reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah (saw) reciting this Qur'anic verse: "They have taken their rabbis and their monks as lords beside Allah and [they take as a lord] Al-Masih, Isa, the son of Maryam, yet they were not commanded but to worship One God: None has the right to be worshipped but He - Praise and Glory to Him: [Far is He] from having the partners they associate [with Him]" (Qur'an 9:31)...

and I said to him : "We don't worship them."

He (Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam) said: "Do they not forbid what Allah has permitted and do you not then forbid it (to yourselves), and do they not make permissible for you what Allah has forbidden, and do you not then make it permissible (to yourselves)?" Click on image for full details

To Vote or Not to Vote?

So Election Day is just round the corner and you’ve probably had bare mans knocking on you door promising you the world if you vote for them! Other people are telling just go and vote to stop the BNP getting in. But as Muslims we need to ask ourselves what Islam says about voting in this system, whether it’s worth it and what the alternative is?

Banning the Burka

Belgium voted on banning the Burka, just a couple months after Switzerland voted to ban the minarets, while the Dutch MP who wants to ban the Quran is riding high in the polls. Where is this all heading??? Though only a few sisters where the Niqab, it’s being used as a sly tool to chip away at Islam and the Muslim’s in Europe and is only the tip of the iceberg. This storm is not going away but getting stronger and unless we Muslims stand up together, we’ll all just get blown little by little...

Defending Masjid Al Aqsa

Masjid Al Aqsa was the 1st qibla of Islam, the place where the Prophet Muhammad (saw) made the night journey to and the 3rd holiest site in Islam. Today, Masjid Al Aqsa is under occupation and under attack, Men over 50 are only allowed to pray on Fridays and the Israelis are digging underneath it and want to destroy it to build a temple!!! This is going on daily but what are we doing to defend this holy mosque, and it’s land? What are the Muslim rulers doing and where are our armies?

Death, the Destroyer of Pleasures

The only thing in life that's definite is...DEATH. The prophet (saw) said "Remember often the destroyer of pleasures", but rather than remember it, we run away from it, though it comes without warning. So have we prepared for the eventuality? shouldn't we be concerned about what happens after, we reach our Final Destination.

1000 Inventions of Islamic History

What do Algebra, Chemistry and spectacles have in common? Give up? Well as a matter of fact they were all invented in the Muslim world loooong before the Europeans even knew what they were!

Let’s just get this straight, one minute their telling us, no forcing us to get involved in their democratic politics and then when some do, they come down on us like a ton of bricks saying we’re trying to turn Britain into an Islamic Republic!!! It should teach us a lesson though, that we shouldn’t fall into their trap of constantly changing Islam to keep them happy, joining the corrupt democratic process and STOP KISSING THE HAND THAT SLAPS US!!!
