Five things to do on Lailatul Qadr

By Imam Omar Suleiman

“In the last 10 days of Ramadan, there is a hidden night that is the most consequential night of the year. Don’t miss out on the blessings on offer during this auspicious night. Here are five things you can do to gain the maximum benefit…”

Lailatul Qadr: The Night of Power

By Arshad Gamiet
“Let us spend our Night of Power, in Dhikrullah, remembering Alláh, swt, and offering thanks to Him, for his countless blessings that we enjoy each moment of our lives. Let us passionately seek Alláh’s help, Glorified and Exalted is He, to lift the burden of injustice and oppression from so many Muslim communities around the world….”

Ramadan: a time for Love and Gratitude to Allah

By Dr Hossam Roushdi
“Ramadan isn’t about long days, hunger and thirst or lack of sleep….. it’s about showing our love and gratitude to Allah. It’s about appreciating the countless blessings we enjoy every day. It’s about showing Allah how much we love, worship and adore Him…”

Welcoming Ramadan

By Arshad Gamiet
“Many of us think that Ramadan is a time to ‘go slow’ and to avoid exerting ourselves. Some of us would want to sleep all day until iftar. This is completely wrong.

Illness, death and bereavement

By Arshad Gamiet

“As Covid-19 and its later mutations sweep across the world, there is hardly anyone who hasn’t been affected by its devastating consequences. If the virus has until now not reached you and your family, you are indeed fortunate. But you probably know someone or know of someone who became ill or died from it. There are so many tragic stories of loss and bereavement every day.
How should a Muslim deal with severe illness and death of a loved one? What good advice is needed by those left behind, before, during and after tragic loss of life?”

Remembering Allah during these hard times

By Arshad Gamiet
“Our reckless lifestyle has driven a climate emergency that is near tipping point. The Covid-19 pandemic has spread far more widely and quickly because of clumsy leadership. Unscrupulous and shameless politicians and their friends in the media spread blatant lies to foster fear and hate. Endless wars are killing, maiming and displacing millions of people around the world. How did we get into this mess, and how do we get out of it?”
