This section will provide information to allow sisters to further strengthen their faith and act as a source of information on religious matters.
Our sisters run programmes for adult sisters on Saturday and Tuesday mornings. Classes for sisters who want to learn Surahs are held on Thursday mornings. Classes are also held on Saturdays after 1pm for sisters who have reverted to Islam.
Virtues of Bismillah
IN THE NAME OF ALLAH THE BENEFICIENT THE MERCIFUL
For those of us looking to reach the ultimate peak in our personal and professional lives, let us try beginning each act, deed, or intention with bismillah and see the immediate difference it brings. Beginning our actions by invoking the name of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala,is a blessing that has been bestowed upon our Ummah by our Creator, Most High.
Invoking Allah’s Subhanahu wa Ta’ala name with a sense of sincerity and reliance will help in warding away Shaytan, man’s biggest enemy, whom we have been ordered to seek constant refuge from. Shaytan can very easily place a wrong intention in our hearts, change our way of thinking and mould our thoughts according to his evil plots, making us lose out on the numerous benefits and advantages that we could have easily achieved had we started our work by invoking Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala’s name. Cutting out evil is one of the most effective ways to stay focused and concentrate on the task ahead.
Ramadhan Masa’il For Females
We thank and praise Allah for allowing us yet another month of Ramadaan in which we can show our love and devotion to Him and draw from the treasures of His mercy.
The month of Ramadan is a month which is venerated in the Islamic religion, and it is distinguished from the other months by a number of characteristics and virtues.
Allah has made fasting in this month the fourth pillar of Islam, as Allah mentions in Surah Baqarah:-
“The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’aan, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong). So whoever of you sights (the crescent on the first night of) the month (of Ramadan, he must observe Sawm (fasts) that month…”
The following du’a is known as Sayyidul-Istighfaar and is the most superior way of asking for forgiveness from Allah. Hadhrat Shaddad ibn Aws R.A reports that Rasoolullah (saw) said, “The chief of prayers for forgiveness is:
(O Allah! You are my Lord! None has the right to be worshipped but You. You created me and I am Your slave, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise as much as I can. I seek refuge with You from all the evil I have done. I acknowledge before You all the blessings You have bestowed upon me, and I confess to You all my sins. So I entreat You to forgive my sins, for nobody can forgive sins except You.)
Whoever says it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day before the evening, he will be from the people of Paradise; and if somebody recites it at night with firm faith in it, and dies before the morning, he will be from the people of Paradise.
