This calamity brings us closer to Allah..

By Sheikh ‘Abdullah Al Judai’

“This momentous event that we are living through right now is
a mighty sign from among the signs of Allah; a sign that removed
all the masks, humbled the arrogant and conceited, cut off all ties to
any other than Him, placing a barrier, before the Day of
Resurrection, between people and their desires. Where is their
pompous display of power? Where is their pride in what knowledge
they have gained? Where are those who will rescue them from this
calamity, besides Allah?”

International Women’s Day

By Arshad Gamiet
“Remember our Prophet’s wife Khadija, a wealthy business woman who employed him and who supported him in those difficult early years of Islam. Remember Aisha, whom he married after the death of Khadija. Aisha was a great scholar and one of the most authentic sources of Islamic law. Remember Pharaoh’s wife, Aasiyah, who refused to worship her husband as a god. When Pharaoh ordered his soldiers to stone her to death, she looked up and smiled as she saw her place in Heaven, even as the boulders crushed her body.

Sacred tranquillity in our age of distress and anxiety

By Abu Aaliyah
“For a Muslim, the Qur’an is a powerful shifa’, or healing: And We reveal of the Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy to the believers. [Q.17:82] And whilst the primary healing of the Qur’an is in curing the intellectual doubts, falsehoods or half truths concerning God, humanity’s true purpose, life’s essential meaning, and our ultimate end; and in providing humanity with a practical and liveable morality suitable for all times or places,..”

When calamity strikes, say “We came from Allah, and to Allah we will return!”

By Ibrahim Al Tamimi

“The British election result has come as a shock to the Muslim community. Islamophobia seems likely to get worse as the party in government has swung towards more right-wing policies. Living as a Muslim in Britain today will become even more challenging. At times like this, we should remember: Be Islamic; don’t panic! Allah is in control of history. We should follow the example of Prophet Muhammad sws and his noble companions. Put our trust in Allah. “Hasbun Allah wa neya’mal wakeel” Allah is the best Guardian and Protector…”

Become a better husband, like Prophet Muhammad sws!
