This is what Ramadan was preparing you for…

By Dr Salman Butt.

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?

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.”

Ramadan in the Quran

By Atif Jung
“Just like a hairy caterpillar emerges from a cocoon to become a beautiful butterfly, the fasting person should emerge from Ramadan with a beautified character and faith in Allah improved.”
