Half Way Through Ramadan

As we reach the middle of Ramadan alhumdulilah, here is some food for thought:

Ibn Al-Jawzi said:
“When the race horse knows that it is nearing the end of the track it exerts all of its effort to win the race. Do not allow the race horse to be more clever than you. For verily, deeds are judged by their conclusions. So if you didn’t do well with welcoming Ramadan, then perhaps you will do better bidding it farewell.”

Ibn Taymiyyah said:
“The lesson lies in perfection of the conclusion of a thing, not in the shortcomings of the beginning of it”

Hasan Al-Basri said “Improve your performance in what is left (of time) and 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.”

Ramadan Objectives

13346455_1215851108449560_5221907259588589122_n.jpg

The Blessed month of Ramadan has almost approached us. Alhumdulilah we have been given another opportunity to witness this beautiful month again.

It is a time when the satans are chained. A time when the gates of Paradise are opened and the doors of Hell-Fire are shut. It contains the night of Al Qadr which is better than a thousand months. Every night of Ramadan, Allah swt sets His servants free from Hell-Fire!

In past years as Ramadan concludes, how many times have we found ourselves thinking that we have not done enough? This Ramadan, let us try to prepare ourselves to seize the goodness of this month as much as we can. To organize ourselves, it will be helpful to create a “Ramadan Objective List”. Think about realistic goals you would like to achieve this month, write them down and post them somewhere you can see every day. Additionally, create a “Dua List” with a list of duas you would like to make and focus on.

Our state before Ramadan and after Ramadan should be different. This Ramadan should help us to transform. It should nurture our imaan so that we become better Muslims inshaAllah.

O Allah help us to come closer to you and set us free from the Fire. Ameen!

A Sound Heart – By Shaikh Tahir Wyatt

      A ONE DAY SEMINAR ABOUT 40 HADITH ON ACTIONS OF THE HEART
BY SHAIKH TAHIR WYATT
The premise:

The Prophetصلى الله عليه وسلمsaid about the heart: Truly in the body there is a morsel of flesh which, if it is healthy, all the body is healthy and which, if it is diseased, all of the body is diseased. Truly it is the heart. [al-Bukhaaree, Muslim]

The spiritual health of the heart is affected by the evils of sins like envy, pride, despair, evil desire, conceit etc.. These sins when left unchecked cover the heart until the heart loses its spiritual life and is hardened, preventing the goodness of emaan, taqwa, tawakkul, khushoo’ etc. from developing a healthy heart that is acceptable to Allāh و سبحانه
تعالى who says:

The Day whereon neither wealth nor sons will avail, “But only he (will prosper) that
brings to Allāh, a sound heart
– Translation of the meanings of Al-Qur’ān, Ash-Shu’ara:88-89

The program outcomes:
Most of us have been, or are affected by sickness of the heart & it is crucial to gain an understanding of how to develop a sound heart that is acceptable to Allah تعالى و سبحانه
In this seminar Ustādh Tahir Wyatt discusses the following االله شاء إن:
1. importance of the heart from an Islamic perspective
2. identify qualities of a healthy heart
