  2. Are You A Parent? The "Ultimate Parenting Course" is Coming to Town Surah Yusuf is an amazing surah that deals with the HUMAN CONSCIENCE in the form of a story. One aspect of this story is the relationship between the child and the parent. On this point Shaykh Mohammad Akram Nadwi comments as follows: "The unifying concern of this surah is human conscience – how it is informed, how it is trained and tested, how it is supported and rewarded. This concern is not presented as an argument or doctrine but as a story. We need to reflect on the central concern of the surah and also on why the form of a story works so well to convey it... Conscience is located in the deep interior of a person; it is separate and removed (in some ways, protected) from the external world and from the habits of other people. The unfolding of the story in this surah is a demonstration that the integrity of a person’s conscience is sustained by their commitment to connection with God. The attitude and behaviour of Ya’qub and Yusuf, ‘alayhimaas-salam, throughout the intricately woven incidents, demonstrate that these two men are, at all times, aware of being in the presence of God and answerable to Him. The feeling never leaves them that God is present and God is good: when there is not the least sign of things turning out well for them, they seem able to wait with a gracious patience for things to turn out well. At no point do either of them neglect to think, speak and act in the best way, i.e. in the way most pleasing to God. Conscience is a personal teacher. What it teaches is sometimes also taught by social convention and religious rules, and laws derived from these. But in the end, norms and conventions, the rules and laws in society, are not sufficient to deter people from doing wrong – if they see other people do something wrong and get away with it, they think: why shouldn’t I do the same? Only a strong, healthy conscience can prevent people from following the habits and manners of the people around them and, instead, doing what pleases God and doing it in the way that pleases God." - Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi There are many different courses, books and lectures on parenting and raising children by both Muslims as well as Non-Muslims. This informs us that there is a real issue with raising good children as well as "raising" good parents. But the irony is that these materials and courses often times deal with issues in very superficial ways focusing on techniques, methods, skills, philosophies and ideas. Far from being helpful these are sometimes harmful to both the child and the parent. What is beneficial is beneficial only in a very limited context. The simple reason for this is that they do not really deal with the human conscience which makes the moral judgements and not to mention the fact that the authors themselves have no strong and healthy conscience. The "Ultimate Parenting Course" is the one that makes the concern of the HUMAN CONSCIENCE central and most important - this is none other than Surah Yusuf - The Best of Stories. If you want to be a good parent and if you want your children to be good children then having a deep understanding of Surah Yusuf is a must for you. This is an opportunity for the whole family with crèche facilities for younger children (2-12 years). You cannot afford to miss this lifetime opportunity.

  4. Shariah, Khilafah and Politics in the Light of Surah Yusuf Today there is often so much confusion between Shariah, Khilafah and politics, not just among non-Muslims but among Muslims too. There are some who call for "Shariah law" to be implemented in the UK and there are others who say one's Islam is not complete without the Khilafa or "Islamic state". There are yet others who say application of Shariah law and Khilafah are obsolete and the way to go forward for Muslims is through a democracy. So who is right and and how should one seek the correct solution? The solution can be found in Surah Yusuf - in the 'the best of stories'. When we look into the story of the Prophet Yusuf (AS), we find that the answers are not always black and white as some would have us believe but they depend on the time, place and condition. The amazing beauty of the story is that it covers every possible situation. Surah Yusuf provides a complete and comprehensive lesson in how to conduct oneself in any circumstance, whether one is free or oppressed; having authority or not; achieving an "Islamic state" or not; possessing power or in weakness; living among Muslims or non-Muslims; with the ability to implement Shariah law or not; no matter what our condition may be, the story of Yusuf (AS) will be relevant. The Prophet (SAW) followed the example of Yusuf (AS) not only when he and his companions were being oppressed and persecuted in Makkah prior to the Hijrah, but also after the Hijrah, when he returned to Makkah as the conqueror and the one in authority. The story of Yusuf (AS) also teaches us it is not Shariah Law or Khilafah or politics that matters the most but the soul of the religion - something very deep, universal and permanent, without which nothing has any value or importance. This shows us the power of this story and how important it is to understand it. Coming up this Ramadan is a detailed explanation of Surah Yusuf by one of the foremost scholars and thinkers of the Western world and an expert of both Hadith and Tafsir - Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi. This is an unmissable seminar for everyone, young and old, men and women, students and scholars....

"I recently attended the Tafsir of Surah Nuh. Whilst I had heard much about Shaykh Akram, this was my first class with him. The first thing that you cannot help but appreciate is how the Shaykh hooks you with his connection to knowledge, in a pure sense, there was no need to employ any speaking tactics to keep the attendees engrossed. The Shaykh, made every point relevant, to connect the text with our lives today and our response to get closer to our Creator. Indeed the Shaykh mentioned countless gems that he mentioned offhand but when contemplated on, really struck a chord in the heart. It was also great that the Shaykh was very open to questions, however sensitive, and tackled them head on, without compromising the principles of our faith, exemplifying that Allah azza wa jal has not only blessed him with knowledge, but also wisdom. I don't say this lightly, I genuinely believe, if you have the opportunity to study with the Shaykh, and you don't take it, then you have missed out on tasting the fruits of the knowledge of the Scholarship of our time and land" - Umer Suleman, South London More Testimonials (including videos): http://courses.meoc.org.uk/p/testimonials.html Wassalaam Cambridge Islamic Sciences Seminars London Muslim Education & Outreach Cambridge (MEOC) Tel: 07736 779448 / 01223 655223 Email: courses[at]meoc.org.uk

  7. Forty Hadith - Learn the Essence of the Religion in a Weekend "... However I have found it best to collect together forty hadith which are more important than all of those. These forty hadith incorporate all of those separate topics. In fact, each hadith is by itself a great general precept from the foundations of the Religion. Some scholars state that all of Islam revolves around these hadith. Some have said, about a particular hadith, that they are one-half of Islam, one-third of Islam and so forth... Everyone who desires and looks forward to the Hereafter must be familiar with these hadith because they cover the most important aspects of the religion and offer direction to all forms of obedience of Allah. This is clear to anyone who ponders these hadith." - Imam An-Nawawi (from his introduction to the Forty Hadith) This is your lifetime opportunity to study this important classical text with a real scholar and gain a certificate (ijaza) linking to the Prophet (SAW). 30% Early-bird discount is ending this week.

  8. Unarmed, unsafe unjust — let us not let this war stay unheard of! Assalamu `alaykum wa rahmatoLlahi wa barakatuhu! Nour-domestic violence is pleased and thrilled to bring you our very first event of the year: a unique seminar that we are confident will not leave you disappointed! Read on for more information with regards to this and our amazing speakers! Unfortunately with domestic abuse being a subject brushed far under the carpet, for too long, we as a community have become immune to its severity and effects. We have become hard in our hearts at the reality our people are facing today, and in becoming ignorant to these battles that take place in our homes, we have turned our backs on the oppressed — we have left them to suffer alone. This upcoming seminar will endeavour to revive this topic of domestic violence, to illustrate its severity so that we as a community may be more known to its dangers, its effects, its truth…so that we may understand why this issue needs tackling, and help. REMEBER if our ameer ul mu’mineed Caliph Mu’tasim (may Allah be pleased with him) sent 30,000 of his own soliders to rescue ONE woman, because she was about to be touched in a way no woman should ever be touched, then what are WE doing for these thousands of victims that are undergoing abuse every single day and night, whatever the form may be? Come and find out why it is your duty to eradicate this type of injustice. Come and find out why you must not think twice about assisting. Come and stand in the frontline with your brother, or sister, to let them know that they are not alone – in this battle at home.

  9. Anarchist group vows to wage 'low level warfare' on Olympics An anarchist group has vowed to wage “low level warfare” against Britain, sabotaging financial institutions, transport, and the military in the lead up to the London Olympics. Anarchists have vowed to disrupt the Olympics Photo: REUTERS By Hannah Furness 3:30PM BST 27 May 2012 The Informal Anarchist Federation has already claimed to be responsible for damaging railway signal systems which led to travel being disrupted around Bristol earlier this week. They said their representatives had deliberately lifted concrete slabs beside the tracks to burn out signalling cables, on a route chosen to target Ministry of Defence employees. The group, known as FAI, have now threatened to continue their “guerrilla attack” on the country, “disturbing the social peace” in a protest against the establishment. Posting on anarchist website 325.nostate, the group said: “In the United Kingdom of clockwork control and domestication, we’re some of the ‘unpatriotic ones’ who find the 2012 Olympics, with the ensuing spectacle of wealth (when so many here struggle to feed themselves and their families), harmful developments and escalating police state, frankly offensive. “But no union or movement calls our shots, and we have no inhibition to use guerrilla activity to hurt the national image and paralyze the economy however we can.

The same anarchist group has previously claimed responsibility for a drive-by gun attack in Italy in which the chief executive of a nuclear power firm was shot in the kneecaps. The group now say they are deliberately targeting the Ministry of Defence and defence firms in Britain. They added: “The purpose of guerrilla attack is to spread the struggle into different territories and facets of life. “Finance, judicial, communications, military and transport infrastructure will continue to be targets of the new generation of urban low-intensity warfare.” Source: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/9293298/Anarchist-group-vows-to-wage-low-level-warfare-on-Olympics.html
