The Flash Qur’an!

Assalamu-Alaykum (Peace be Upon you)
Now this is what I like!
An example of Islam in action. Of someone taking the initiative. Of Muslims using technology as it should be used – for the benefit of mankind…
What am I talking about?

Laylatul-Qadr – The Night of Power

Laylatul-Qadr - The Night of Power

Assalamu-Alaykum (Peace be Upon you)
Well as we are well into the last Ash’ra (last 10 days) of Ramadhaan, people will inevitably start having the usual conversations about Laylatul-Qadr (The Night of Power)…..
When is it?
Is it on the odd nights or on the even nights?

As my knowledgeable readers will be [...]

Are You REALLY Fasting?

Are You REALLY Fasting?

Assalamu-Alaykum (Peace be Upon you)
So as we near the end of the first week of the blessed month of Ramadhaan, with dry mouths and rumbling stomachs becoming more of a reality for us, I think it’s time to ask the question; are you really fasting?

Can You Feel The Difference?

Can You Feel The Difference?

Assalamu-Alaykum (Peace be Upon you)
Well, alhumdulillh (all Praise belongs to Allah), Ramadhaan is finally here!
And you know what? I’m not trying to sound like I’m walking on the 7th Heaven already (!), but I think I can feel it!

Hunger and starvation.

Some Easy Listening…

Some Easy Listening...

Assalaamu-Alaykum (Peace be Upon you)

So here it is, Shaikhs Hindawi and Shahat live at Masjid Al-Hidaya on 3rd July [...]

Kickstart Your Day

Kickstart Your Day

Assalamu-Alaykum (Peace be Upon you)
‘Start as you mean to go on’ as the saying goes.
Well everyday, we all have a lot of things to get through and a lot of tasks to accomplish and if we have the right start to the day then that certainly helps.

Seeing is Believing

Seeing is Believing

Assalaamu-Alaykum (Peace be Upon you)
This is what I saw…
People sitting down so close that one movement of your body sends a tremor down the line…
The people standing at the back, only Allah knows how much their legs ached during the 90 minutes they stood…
And then?
Then there was the rain.
Oh the beautiful rain!
How it pattered softly [...]

In Qur’an We Trust

In Qur'an We Trust

Assalaamu-Alaykum (Peace be Upon you)
Every religion has their holy text. Judaism has the Torah, Christianity has the Bible and alhumdulillah (all Praise belongs to Allah), Islam is blessed with the beauty of the Qur’an.

Is it the way any Muslim can just pick it up and read [...]
