Asalam au alaikum wa rehmatula hi wa barakatahu :D I would like to welcome u all with the islamic greetings may Allahs peace and blessings be upon u all :p
As u all know we r in the blessed month of ramdhaan where we should be spending our time in ibaadah ( worship) and remembering Allah swt. Remember during ramdhaan ur rewards are doubled subhanAllah. Take advantage.
So just try this month, do not read any book, pick up the quran and read translation. Do not go on searching web for worldly stuff rather search hadithes. Do not watch tv till late night pray ur night prayers ( salah). Do not listen to thoughtless music, try listening to beautiful nasheeds or islamic lectures. Do not sit there bored on weekends try doing tasbih on ur fingers. Do not go socialising rather socialise and engage with ur lord in prayer. InshAllah.
Its a month of purity and we fast not just refraining from food but also from sins and things which distracts us too much from our dean (religion) and that which lowers our emaan (faith. )
Plz read this beautiful authentic hadith. U will love it. As u read it remember that this is true...not fiction. ..than u will appreciate it more.
Abu Hurairah reported: The Messenger of Allah, sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said,
"Allah, the Exalted, has teams of angels who go about on the roads seeking those who remember Allah. When they find some people remembering Allah they call to one another and say, `Come to what you are looking for;' and they surround them with their wings till the space between them and the lowest sky is fully covered. Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, asks them (although He is best informed about every thing): `What are my slave saying?' They say: `They are glorifying Your Tasbih, Tahmid, Takbir, Tamjid, (i.e., they were declaring Your Perfectness, praising, remembering the Greatness and Majesty of Allah).' He asks: `Have they seen Me?' They reply, `No, indeed, they have not seen You.' He asks: `How would they act if they were to see Me?' Thereupon they reply: `If they were to see You, they would engage more earnestly in worshipping and glorifying You and would extol You more.' He would say: `What do they beg of Me?' They say, `They beg You for Your Jannah.' Allah says, `Have they seen My Jannah?' They say, `No, our Rabb.' He says: `How would they act if they were to see My Jannah?' They reply, `Were they to see it, they would more intensely eager for it.' They (the angels) say, `They seek Your Protection.' He asks, `Against what do they seek My Protection?' They (the angels) say, `Our Rabb, from the fire of Hell.' He says, `Have they seen the fire of Hell?' They say, `No. By Your Honour, they have not seen it.' He says: `How would they act if they were to see My Fire?' They say: `If they were to see it, they would be more earnest in staying away from it and fearing it. They beg of Your forgiveness.' He says: `I call you to witness that I hereby grant pardon to them and confer upon them what they ask for; and grant them protection against what they seek protection from.' One of the angels says: `Our Rabb, there is amongst them such and such slave who does not belong to the assembly of those who are participating in Your remembrance. He passed by them and sat down with them.' He says: `I also grant him pardon because they are the people by virtue of whom their associates will not be unfortunate'.''
narrated by Bukhari and Muslim
This holy month is the ninth month in our Islamic calendar and is one of the five pillars of Islam. It is a requirement but there are special considerations which are given under special circumstances, such as those who are pregnant, the very young, those on importat medications, etc (note that we will be updating an article which discusses those not permitted and those not required to fast).
The observance of Sawm (fasting) is a truly spiritual time for all and is personally one of the times of the year that us here particularly look forward to, and we know we are not the only ones. It is a time when Muslims all over the UK come together and for that month we are closer as a family and as a community.
We welcome all feedback and all suggestions are taken seriously so please keep your suggestions and comments coming and we will try to answer each email if we can, Inshallah.
