The Prophet ﷺ said: “There are no days in which good deeds are more beloved to Allah than during these days” (Bukhari)
As the ten best days of the year draw nearer we need to question ourselves whether we are prepared for these ten days? Do we know the rulings and rewards related to them? And what about the rulings of sacrifice and Eid Al Adha?

Kalemah presents ‘The Ruling of Dhul Hijjah’ with Sheikh Ahmad Samih. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn about the virtues and rulings of these 10 days.

JILC Announcement

For many years, JILC has welcomed Muslims new and old, expats and locals, young and mature through the doors of its villa on Dubai’s Al Wasl Road.

However, sadly, due to a number of reasons, we are having to move away from 819 Al Wasl Road – and the future for JILC as a centre is uncertain.

For a number of previous years we have been fortunate to have had the support of generous benefactors who have been able to donate the funds required to pay the rent. This year, we struggled to find new benefactors to support us – and the impact of the COVID-19 on the wider community has only exacerbated this challenge.

JILC is facing its biggest challenge – and needs a new place to call home

As it stands today, the centre remains closed and items will be moved out in the coming days and weeks in’sha’Allah. We have secured temporary homes for our extensive library of Islamic books and Qurans, plus the majlis sofa seating that has been the location of many lecture nights, Eid breakfasts and family gatherings. Other remaining items will be donated to those in need.

Moving forward in’sha’Allah, JILC needs to find a new location and sponsors who are able to put forward the funds needed to cover the costs of rent and overheads. JILC is run mostly by volunteers, and what little funds we are able to secure is used to pay small stipends to our teaching staff of qualified teachers, Imams and Sheikhs – plus keep the lights and AC on.

For now, we will continue to run a number of sessions online. This includes our weekly New Muslim sessions with Sheikh Ayaz, who is also hosting Quran lessons for brothers. Summer Asafeerul Jannah classes for children will begin shortly in’sha’Allah. We also have our regular weekly evening lecture on Thursdays with a number of different speakers.

We hope to share our wider plan for the summer months and an integrated online platform for all these soon in’sha’Allah.

If you are in a position to help JILC – either through a financial donation, or potentially with a new location we could call home – please do not hesitate to contact us. Our WhatsApp and e-mails are always open to you.

May Allah make it easy for us all and we look forward to welcoming you to a new home for JILC soon in’sha’Allah.

Jazak’Allah khair.

The open classes are for anyone wishing to increase their knowledge and understanding of our beautiful religion. Sheikh Ayaz will explain a specific concept or topic in detail and will be open to answering any questions.

After the new Muslim classes, Sheikh Ayaz Housee will host his regular Tajweed classes for brothers to improve their recitation and understanding of the holy Quran.

Should you wish to join the class, please let JILC know via e-mail and we can connect you with Sheikh Ayaz Housee to add you to the sessions.

We hope the JILC family is staying home and staying safe and our sessions will help you through these challenging times.

Welcome to Islam – Educational Course for New Muslims

“Say: Are those who know equal to those who know not?” (39:9)

New Muslims face significant challenges. One of these challenges is that despite an abundance of material in books and on the internet, information is of varying quality and accuracy, and is often spread across many places. This information is often mixed with content which is inappropriate, too detailed, or confusing for a new Muslim. There is also a lack of simple, structured material from which a new Muslim can learn that which they really need to know in the first few days and weeks.

‘Welcome to Islam’ is a unique programme for new Muslims, dealing with what you would need to know and learn as you progress through your life as a Muslim. We intend to cover only the things that are essential for a new Muslim to know, in a way that is easily accessible to people who are new to Islam.

Start Date: 14th Feb 2020
Schedule: Every Friday
Time: Level 1 – 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Venue: Kalemah Islamic Centre (Click here for location)
Fees: FREE

Course completion certificate recognized by the Dubai Courts
