Insha-Allah this #RamadanSeason on 21st June 2014 I will be taking a skydive for Save The Mothers Trust(SMT). Click to Retweet this


It's a jump for charity and a leap of faith. If this doesn't kill me I'll pray Salatul Shukr. All the money raised will be sent to the Ramadan Food Appeal by SMT in Asian countries, African regions and Syria, so this is my request for your ongoing du`a' and help.

Poster: Almost Every #Tajweed Rule

Tuesday, 25 March 2014

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

I'm about to commence Arabic exams. I'm freaking out. My all-in-one visual poster of almost every single Tajweed rule has become by comfort blanket. Alhamdulillah (all praise belongs to Allah).

That should be "Madd", not "Maad". -straightface-

Make du`a' for me and my tribe!

'Mary, Woman of God', Ustada Najiba

Monday, 17 March 2014

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم


#IlmyNotes from Ustadha Najiba's seminar at Huddersfield University.

Ibn Razzin said of Maryam `alayhas-salam (peace be upon her), daughter of `Imran and mother of Prophet Jesus,
"Maryam has the qualities of the perfect woman. As one of the four greatest women mentioned in Qur'an, she has reached a degree of prophecy only entitled to mighty men." [paraphrased]
We study the life of Maryam from the same angle that we study the Anbiya (prophets) because as women, although we cannot always identify with male prophets, it is easier to relate to Maryam. She connects to our lives today in the 21st century much more than the male prophets.

The Great Maryam
Scholars have debated for aeons over who is The Greatest woman in history. Unlike the unshiftable status of Prophet Muhammad as the greatest man, there is contention between choosing Fatima az-Zahra bint Muhammad, Khatejah tul-Kubra, Asiya wife of Firawn and Maryam bint `Imran as the best of women-and rightfully so. These women are our mothers, they are paradigms for women and superior role models that would collapse the contemporary view of women.

It's a fact that Fatima, may Allah be pleased with her, is the leader of heavenly women. And Maryam was chosen by Allah to be a mother of Prophet Jesus!

Muhammad's ﷺ Mercy

Muhammad's ﷺ Mercy in Life And Departure

Allah says, "We did not send you, [Oh Muhammad ﷺ] except as a mercy to all the worlds" (Qur'an, 21:107).

Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Tahir said in explanation of this Ayat,
"Allah imbued Muhammad ﷺ with mercy, so that his very being was mercy and all his qualities and attributes were mercy to all creatures. Whoever is touched by any aspect of his mercy is saved in both worlds from every hateful thing and obtains everything he loves. Do you not see that Allah says, 'We did not send you except as a mercy to all the worlds.'? His life was mercy and his death was mercy. As the Prophet ﷺ himself said, 'My life is a blessing for you and my death is a blessing for you'. (From al-Harith ibn Abi Usama in Al-Bazzar with a sound Isnad/chain).

The Prophet ﷺ also said,
'When Allah desires mercy for a community, He takes its Prophet ﷺ to Him before them and He makes him one who goes ahead to prepare the way for them'." - Muslim.
