Dear brothers and sisters, i want to tell you that a close uncle of mine passed away due to a sudden cardiac arrest today. He was very young (about 32) and he smoked and did not offer prayers alot. But he loved his family very much. He was a spendthrift person but he spent alot for his family. He had been having a financial crisis and was struggling for alot of time. He dearly loved our Prophet (pbuh) and Imam Ali, his namesake. Please, brothers, please pray for him and add your pleas to mine own.
Matthew 16:21 - From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests, and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.
If Jesus is predicting His death then why not believe it?
“An hour for my Lord, and an hour for my desires,”
I used to hear them say. And so my world is divided Between a life of amusement And a life of religiosity But what if I can consolidate the two
and finally make it feel right?

At least 130 people are injured and three dead after
two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon Monday
afternoon. The injuries include dismemberment, witnesses said, and local
hospitals say they are treating shrapnel wounds, open fractures and
limb injuries. An eight-year-old boy is one of the three known dead,
multiple news outlets reported, and several of the injured are also
At a Monday night press conference, Gov. Deval Patrick urged
Bostonians to be vigilant on their morning commute Tuesday, and to
report any suspicious packages to the police. The FBI has officially
taken over the investigation, and is treating it as a potential
Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis stressed that the police had no
suspect in custody yet. "I'm not prepared to say we are at ease at this
time," Davis said, when asked if the area was safe.
"This cowardly act will not be taken in stride," Davis said. "We will turn over every rock to find out who is responsible.''
Davis said Boston police were not aware of any specific threat to the
marathon before it began. Police said they had no one in custody and no
suspects, but the Boston Globe reported that a "person of interest" who
was injured in the blast was being questioned at Brigham and Woman's Hospital Monday night.

Two large explosions, just 50 yards apart, went off at 2:50 p.m. ET,
more than four hours into the race. One of the explosions happened near
the entrance of the Fairmont Copley Hotel in Copley Square. The blast
scattered hundreds of onlookers and runners, and left a bloody scene of
injured spectators, including children. Local news reporter Jackie Bruno
wrote that she saw some people with their limbs blown off.
The Boston Police Department said it is looking for video footage taken
from the finish line as part of its investigation. Video footage shows
first responders and bystanders rushing to the scene of the blast to
help the wounded.
Boston Medical Center took in 20 patients, including two children,
most of whom are being treated for "lower leg injuries," a spokeswoman
said. A spokeswoman for Tufts Medical Center said the hospital is
treating nine patients for conditions such as shrapnel wounds, ruptured
ear drums, and "serious orthopedic and neuromuscular trauma to the lower
legs." At least one patient was as young as three years old.
President Barack Obama warned Americans in a brief statement Monday
evening not to jump to conclusions before authorities find out who
committed the crime. "We will find out who did this," Obama said in an
appearance in the White House briefing room. "Any responsible
individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of
justice." A White House official said the incident is being treated as
an act of terror.
NBC News, citing anonymous law enforcement sources, reported Monday
that a "small homemade bomb" is believed to be responsible for the
explosion. The FAA created a no-fly zone around the area. Cell phone
service was shut down in the area, the AP reported, to prevent any
remote detonations. Family and friends of marathon runners or spectators
can call 617-635-4500 for information on their loved ones.
This video from the Boston Globe shows the moment the bomb went off, and the paper has also pulled together dramatic photos from the aftermath. According to marathon officials, several thousand runners had not finished the race when the explosions detonated.
Police have evacuated the area on
Boylston Street to continue sweeping for more devices. Runners who had
not yet finished the race were stopped at mile 25 and directed to Boston
Common. The Boston Police Department called in all off duty officers in
the city. This New York Times map shows where on the route the explosions took place.

Patrick called it a "horrific day in Boston" in a statement.
The New York Police Department is stepping up security around the
city in response to the explosion. At the White House, yellow police
tape was used to block off Pennsylvania Avenue from pedestrians in front
of the White House's north gates and secret service were positioned
along the perimeter. Credentialed pass holders continued to be permitted
entry and exit from both the White House and the Executive Office

The Magnificent Journey - Starting in September
An Amazing Journey Through The Last Two Parts (Juzu Tabaarak and Juzu 'Amma) of the Qur'an, From Surah Al-Mulk to Surah An-Naas, by one of the foremost Islamic Scholars and Thinkers of the Western World today
The last two parts of the Qur'an contain the short surahs which were revealed in Makkah including the first revelation to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This was when the Meccan society was seeped in doubt and darkness. Allah (SWT) chose to dispel the darkness through these succinct yet very powerful surahs. The society today (although materially advanced) has somewhat gone back to the days of Jahilliya or Ignorance and therefore the power and the relevance of these short Surahs in bringing the people back to light, certainty and guidance cannot be overestimated. Furthermore, these are the Surahs which are widely read in the Prayers and memorised by many because of their short length. Therefore the effect it would have to understand these Surahs in a deep and meaningful way is immeasurable.
This year long journey is undertaken with one of the foremost Islamic Scholars and Thinkers of the Western World today. It is a unique Journey unlike any other. No amount of reading books on this Surahs or listening to lectures will help as much as undertaking this Journey with a scholar of traditional training coupled with deep thinking who will bring vast amounts of resources together to make these Surahs applicable to the modern context.
For the first time ever MEOC is offering a Magnificent Journey Pass that would give entry for the whole year with additional features such as free entry for the children for a limited time. The Pass is priced in a such a way that attending just 5 out 10-12 sessions would cover the cost. These seminars are now also offered online live for the international audience.

"Alhamdulillah I've attended 3 seminars of Sheikh Akram's so far, and Insha Allah I will keep coming back for more! He was introduced to me by my brother who attends his study circles regularly in Oxford. I loved the seminar on Women scholars in Islam, it was a total eye opener into what a Muslim woman's role in society is, which surprisingly (or not) goes against many cultiural and conventionally held notions of Muslim women. My other favourite one was the tafseer of Surat al Fatiha and the last ten surahs, I will not be exaggerating when I say that I truly found it mind blowing. Sheikh Akram is an absolute treasure trove of knowledge but Masha Allah he always carries himself with the utmost humility. I have already had a look at the list of future seminars and I think MEOC is doing a great job in giving the layman an opportunity to have an exciting insight into the world of Muslim scholarship with its choice of highly intellectual topics. Last but not least, its a great opportunity to meet new people of diverse backgrounds. Well done all of you and may Allah reward you for your efforts." - Dr Fathima Shyma Fazal, Boston, Lincolnshire
