  3. Do you regret wasting most of Ramadan?

    Hasan al-Basri (Ra) said: "Improve your performance in what is left & you will be forgiven for that which has already passed. So take special care of the time you have left because you do not know when your soul will be turned over to Allah’s Mercy.”

    All is not lost so do not despair. There are still 7 nights left so its not too late to turn things around. So make firm intention right now to make the best of what remains! Make a plan of how you will spend the remaining days and nights and get rid of all distractions! Especially mobile phones and TV. Even if it is until Eid. For we will regret this valuable time we have wasted on petty things!


  4. Fasting 6 days of Shawwal is like fasting for a lifetime!

     

     

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Whoever fasts Ramadaan and follows it with six days of Shawwaal, it will be as if he fasted for a lifetime.” [Muslim]

     

    SubhanAllah how can any of us miss such a valuable opportunity when we will be begging each other for a single good deed on the day of Judgement!

     

    It is even more rewarding to observe the 6 fasts on Sunnah fasting days such as Monday & Thursdays & the White days (13th, 14th & 15th of each Islamic month).

     

    The White days for Shawwal 2017 are: 13th Shawwal - Friday 7th July; 14th Shawwal - Saturday 8th July; 15th Shawwal - Sunday 9th July.

     

    The 6 fasts can be spread out throughout the month of Shawwal inshaAllah. 

     

    NOTE: The Month of Shawwal ends on Monday 24th July 2017


  5. ASA Brothers and Sisters

     

    I recently discovered that a person in my family has done black magic (jaadu) on my immediate family. It seems that nothing good happens to us, only problems. Everyone in my house is sick and they cant seem to move forward in their life. We tried many times to find a new house but something always goes bad. Last time my husband lost his job, my son got severly sick, my daughter cant get admission to any university. I got so scared that i stopped finding a house beacsue i dont want to harm my family. I talked with two people (1 muslim and 1 christian) adn they both came up with the same conclusion that a famliy member who hates us has done a harsh black magic on us.

    Please help me break this curse because i fear the worst now and nothing including prayer and reading quaran doesnt help.

     

    thank you 

     

    Asalaamu Alaikum, 

     

    You need to find a good reliable Raqi (One who uses Qur'an and Sunnah to ward of evil from Jinn). Are you able to locate one? 


  6. How to end Ramadan?

     

     

    Imagine if there was no Ramadan? We would be in permanent loss. We would have gone off the right track a long time ago with little hope. Allah in his mercy blesses us with Ramadan each and every year so we can get back on the right track again. So we can remember him and be more aware of him. So 

     

    Many of us will be excited to partake in the festivities of the night before Eid and on Eid day. But surely the last few precious hours/minutes of this blessed month and the night before Eid day should be spent in thanking Allah for enabling us to experience this blessed month and asking Allah to forgive us for any short comings and deficiencies in our fasts during this blessed month. Most of all we must continue with the positive changes we made during this blessed month. 

     

    So if we prayed all of our prayers then we must carry on as the prayer i our greatest obligation and the minimum we must do as Muslims. If we (the men) attended the Masjids more during this month then we must carry on attending the Masjid after Ramadan. This will continue to give us a sense of community and brotherhood that we felt during this blessed month. 

     

    If the sister started wearing hijaab and jilbaab and stopped wearing tight clothes and putting on excessive make up and perfume, then surely she must continue doing so for Allah loves it and what is better than what Allah loves?

     

    If we lost our focus throughout the year to the worldly life and materialism then we must re-align our focus to that of pleasing Allah and yearning for the Hereafter. 

     

    If we neglected our hearts and allowed it to be continuously corrupted and blackened then we must cleanse it with the remembrance of Allah and refrain from the major sins and do good deeds. 

     

    If we neglected our Deen and did not obey Allah then we must make a firm commitment from this moment that we will try our best to obey Allah and make our focus to do everything in our lives that will please him and refrain from anything that may anger and displease him. 

     

    What is the point of Ramadan if we leave the good we acquired and went back to your old ways? Ramadan is not just for one month but it is for life. The way to know our Ramadan was accepted is to see whether we continue the positive changes after Ramadan. So let us spend the last few hours of Ramadan and before we go to sleep tonight thanking Allah and asking of him to forgive us for any short comings and deficiencies in our fasting and to forgive us for all of our past and present sins. 

     

    Therefore let us internalise now that we will make permanent and necessary changes to our lives from this moment on wards and focus on the Hereafter and to spend each day of our lives doing everything we can to please Allah and keep away from anything that may anger or displease him. Most of all that we will never go back to how we were before Ramadan!


  7. The Blessed Day of Arafaat is tomorrow (Sunday 11th Sept)


    The best day of the entire year is upon us - The blessed day of Arafat - is tomorrow (Sun 11th Sept) from Fajr .

    10 things we can do to make the best of the Blessed Day of Arafat:


    Out of 365 days in a year, the day of Arafat has been singled out to be the best day of all. Even better than any day of Ramadan. Therefore we cannot possibly afford to miss out on the immense rewards that are available on this most special day. This is a day where we can change our lives forever & get closer to Allah & gain forgiveness for an entire lifetime of sins:

    The Prophet (SallAllaahu Alayhi wa sallam) said: "There is no day when Allah sets free more slaves from the Fire than the day of 'Arafat. He (Allaah) draws near, then He boasts about them before the Angels and says: 'What do these people want?'" (Muslim)

    It is a day when the reward of good deeds are increased significantly. For eg. If there was a sale on where everything was buy 1 get 70 free you would see people queuing for miles and even trampling on each other to get such a deal. But in reality the day of Arafat is far more valuable than this. So we should grab as much as we can on this blessed day!

    The following is a worship plan for the day of Arafat:

    1. Intend to fast on this special day: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was asked about fasting on the day of Arafah. He replied, "Fasting on the day of Arafat is an expiation (for sins) for the preceding year and the following year...[Muslim]

    SubhanAllah! Refer to your local Masjid prayer timetable to for Suhur (When Fajr begins) and Iftaar (When Maghrib begins) times.

    2. Prepare food for Suhur before sleeping and sleep early in order to awaken a little earlier for the Tahajjud prayer. Surely Allah listens to the prayers of those who ask of him in the depths of the night when most people are asleep.

    Ensure you eat something for Suhoor as there is a blessing during this time, even if it is a date, and then pray Tahajjud & intense Dua until Fajr begins.

    3. Pray the 5 prayers on time - In congregation at the Masjid for men.

    4. Pray the 12 Rakah Sunnah's on this day - For a reward of a palace in Jannah! ( 2 Rakah Sunnah - Fajr, 4 & 2 Rakah Sunnah - Dhuhur, 2 Rakah Sunnah - Maghrib & 2 Rakah Sunnah - Isha)

    5. Pray many Nawafil (Voluntary) prayers as much as possible on this day particularly Tahajjud which is the best Nawafil prayer - 2-8 Rakah just before Fajr begins, 2 - 8 Rakah Nawafil Salaatul Duha between 20 mins after sunrise until before Dhuhur begins, 2 Rakah Nawafil in Dhuhur, 2 Rakah Nawafil in Maghrib, 2 Rakah in Isha & 2 Rakah Nawafil in Isha. 2 Rakah Nawafil after every Wudu & 2 Rakah Nawafil whenever at the Masjid.

    6. Recite the following constantly during this blessed day no matter what you are doing: Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha ilallah.

    Make a target of reciting at least 1000 each or however many is realistic for you. While doing so think of what you are saying and also contemplate on the greatness of Allah.

    7. Recite the Quran as much as possible. Make a target for yourself. Three Juz (chapter), two, one, half a Juz, or even a page.

    8. Make much Dua on this blessed day:

    The day of Arafaat is the day of Dua. We should make a pre prepared list of what we want to ask Allah on this auspicious day.

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "The best du'aa is du'aa of the day of 'Arafah...(Tirmidhi)

    Repent and thank Allah and ask of him your hearts desires, needs and wants. Make sure you make the most of the blessed times to make Dua which are 20-30 minutes before Fajr begins & 20-30 minutes before Maghrib begins.

    9. Give much Charity as much as you canafford on this day - whether it is £1000, £500, £250 £100, £50, £25, £10 or whatever change you have. If you have not given Qurbani yet then there is no better time than on this blessed day:

    Please give whatever you can for a home for Widows and Orphans in Syria that I am raising for with the charity - One Nation. 100% donation policy:

    http://https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/orphanhomesinsyriafarrukh

    10. Take every opportunity to do good deeds on this blessed day whether it is by serving your parents, being good to your neighbours, being the best towards other people no matter how they are towards you solely to please Allah.

    Good manners & character are the heaviest on the good deed scales so be the best person you can be. Even a smile to your fellow Muslim or moving an object from the path is reward. Every act can be a reward with good intentions and sincerity.


    Please forward to as many people as you can so all can benefit from this as it will be a great reward for anyone who acts upon this.

    So let us make the best of this most blessed day. Remember there is no guarantee we will be alive tomorrow let alone next year. So if you want to make life changes and get closer to Allah then there is no better time to do so than now. Our enemy satan only wants us to keep putting off these changes until death takes us when it will be too late.

    May Allah enable us to make the best of this blessed day and make it a means for us to change our lives for the better forever by making us fully immerse into the deen and to get closer to him. Ameen

  9. Ramadan has almost gone & most of us are in utter regret for the time we have wasted this Ramadan. However we must not give up hope! A few blessed days and nights still remain & it is the opinion of most of the Sahaba and majority of scholars is that Laylatul Qadr is most likely to be on the night of the twenty-seventh. It was reported, in a hadith narrated by Ahmad from Ibn 'Umar, and a hadith narrated by Abu Dawud from Mu'awiyah, that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Laylat al-Qadr is the night of the twenty-seventh." [Musnad Ahmad and Sunan Abu Dawud, 1386] .

    Ubayy ibn Ka'b (Ra) used to assert, without saying "insha'Allah", that it was the night of the twenty-seventh. Zurr ibn Hubaysh said: I said: What makes you say that, O Abu'l-Mundhir? He said: by the signs of which the Messengers of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) told us: that the sun rises that morning with no visible rays. [Narrated by Muslim,2/268] .

    Many marfu' ahadith were narrated which said that it was on this particular night. Ibn 'Abbas also stated that it is the night of the twenty-seventh. He reached this conclusion by means of an amazing process. It was reported that 'Umar gathered the Sahabah together and included Ibn 'Abbas even though he was very young. They said, "Ibn 'Abbas is like one of our children. Why have you brought him here with us?" 'Umar said: "He is a youth who has a good mind and who asks lots of questions." Then he asked the Sahabah about Laylat al-Qadr, and they agreed that it was one of the last ten nights of Ramadan. He asked Ibn 'Abbas about it, and he said: "I think I know when it is: it is the night of the twenty-seventh." 'Umar said, "What makes you think that?" He said, "Allah made the heavens seven, and the earths seven, and the days seven, and He created man from seven, and He made Tawaf seven (circuits), and al-Sa'i seven, and the stoning of the Jamar seven." So Ibn' Abbas thought that it was the night of the twenty-seventh because of this analysis. This has been soundly reported from Ibn 'Abbas.

    Therefore we must give it our all in this blessed night. We may not see another Ramadan or Laylatul Qadr like many who have passed away before Ramadan. We know we can be seized by death at any moment so surely we must ensure that we pass away whilst doing good and not whilst in sin. So this night must be a night that we change ourselves and strive to get closer to Allah and live for the Hereafter not this temporary life.

    May Allah enable us to make the best of the nights that remain. Ameen
