Ramadan 2006

Alhumdulillah, the month of Shaban is now upon us and we have less than a month left to go to the blessed month of Ramadan.

What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar and during this month Muslims abstain from food, drink, smoking and marital sex during daylight hours (from the break of dawn until sunset). When asked by Non Muslims as to why we fast during Ramadan, remember when responding that the primary reason is that it has been declared Fardh (obligatory) upon every adult, sane and healthy Muslim and is a form of worship. Fasting in Ramadan is one of the 5 pillars of Islam. All other reasons such as it teaches us patience, empathy for the hungry etc are secondary.

The month of Ramadan is even more so blessed for the Muslims as it was in this month the Holy Qur’an was revealed. Our scholars and teachers have already started telling us of the virtues and blessings of Ramadan and how the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) used to await and prepare for the coming of Ramadan. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to so eagerly await the arrival of the month of Ramadhãn that from the time the moon of Rajab was sighted he would make the following Duã:
“O Allah, Bless us in the month of Rajab and Sha’ban and cause us to reach Ramadhan.”

Please visit the Haq Islam Ramadan resources page below for some great articles on Ramadan and how to prepare for it. Inshallah, more and more will be added to it over the course of the next few weeks for us to utilise this coming Ramadan.

Madrassah Al Zahra – First Sisters Bukhari Graduation Ceremony

Assalamu Alaikum,

Madrassah Al Zahra [London – Walthamstow] is going to hold its First Sisters Bukhari Graduation Ceremony insha’Allah. However, to make it a success, **SPONSORS & Donations are NEEDED!!**.

Madrassah Al Zahra is a Madrassah running the Alim course for sisters. It has been running for approximately seven years and its very first class will be graduating this year insha’Allah.

The Madrassah, being part time, has taken the girls 7 years to complete, and many improvements have been made to the Madrassah Syllabus.

It is greatly indebt, as the Madrassah charge only a small fee to enroll on the Aalimah Course, and so are in need of both students and donations.

“We want the Graduation Ceremony to be successful, and in order for it to be so, we need sponsors and donations from you, our Muslim Brothers and

Please do remember, that you’ll be helping us to give da’wah, & to enrol more students onto the course which insha’Allah will be a means of Sadaqah Jaariyah.

Please do contact us at aishah@muslimways.com for more information.

A friend of mine attends the Madrassah and is currently in the third year. She hopes to fulfill her and her parents dream by completing the course to spread Islam insha’Allah.

By inviting others to the final lesson of Sahih Bukhari, people may be able to see the success of the students insha’Allah. Since it is a part time Alimah Course, the girls face the world whilst studying and in some way, give up more than Darul Uloom students.

The Madrassah will also be holding its end of year Jalsa on the day, so sisters may watch and listen to various presentations by the students.

The Madrassah really wants more sisters to join, so that ilm can spread and falsehood may vanish, however, due ot the Madrassah being in debt, donations are needed. Please do email the above address so that the Madrassah may know that there are people out there who care, who want the best for their brothers and sisters, whether living near by or or not.
