Lessons from one of the greatest teachers of the Qur’an

By Basharat Ali
Musab ibn Umayr was the first ambassadors of Islam. He gave up his wealth, his high reputation and even his safety to defend Islam during the difficult early years. He learned from the Qur’an and applied what he knew even before the whole revelation was complete. He spoke gently and persuasively to win over enemies to Islam. He paved the way for the Hijra, so that the Muslim refugees from Makkah would have a safe welcome in Madinah. He carried the Prophet’s banner at Badr and was martyred at Uhud. How many of his inspiring examples can we apply to our situation today?

Sultan of the Heart

By Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad
“This Eidul Fitr khutbah was delivered at the new Cambridge mosque. Eloquent and inspiring, it covers some of the most pressing issues of the day, and how we Muslims can be excellent role models for others.

Taking the spirit of Ramadan with us

By Abdul Basith Awan

“When we leave our homes, we instinctively check: keys, wallet and phone. That’s normal these days. But most of us forget the most important advice. Centuries ago, Sayyid Abdul Qadir al Jaylani said in his first khutbah that we should check these three things first: 1. Do the things that Allah has commanded us to do; 2. Avoid the things that Allah has forbidden, and 3: Be content with whatever Allah has decreed.”

The Reality of Fasting

By Farooq Khan

“Please note, it is not righteous to fast while travelling, nor is it better for the ill to fast if it is difficult for them to do so. In these cases, they are to make use of the permission that Allah has furnished them with, because He likes it when people take heed of the mercy that He has endowed.”

Ramadan: The month of Quran and Charity

By Farooq Khan
“My dear brothers take the advantage of this blessed
month – read, understand, implement and teach The Qur’an to
yourself, your family members and others. Please also give your
Zakat to purify your wealth and sadaqas as much as you can to
please Allah swt. Then, make Dua ‘O Allah, please forgive our sins,
ignore our shortcomings, accept of Zakat and sadaqas and our
efforts to learn, understand and implement The Qur’an into our lives,
please show your Mercy, ease our account on the day of Judgement
and enter us into Your Paradise, Ameen”

The war in Ukraine

“We seem to be so weak and powerless to influence events that seem far beyond our means to control. Should we be concerned about the war in Ukraine? Sura Al-Ruum (The Romans) gives a clear answer. Muslims should always be concerned when anyone is suffering hardship, anywhere. We should always be on the side of justice, and be willing to help others in need.”
