The latest news from the Joomla! Team
Ramadhan is undoubtedly a very important date in the Muslim calendar and is a great gift from Allah to the believers. It is a month full of Allah’s blessings and mercy, a month where the devil is locked up and people are presented with the opportunity to prove themselves to Allah. All year long we give in to our inner most desires and are constantly feeding our bodies and our egos, not taking into consideration the extreme damage we are doing to our body and soul. Ramadhan is an opportunity from Allah to reflect on what we have been doing the whole year, assess ourselves and to make changes that will bring us into line with what Allah wants from us.
Too often we forget that we have not been sent to this world to get caught up in its attractions and distractions, but to worship Allah and prepare for a better hereafter. Ramadhan gives us time to reflect on what we have, to appreciate Allah’s blessings he has showered us with and to lessen the grip of the devil and our ego.
May Allah give us the ability to benefit from this month in the best possible manner and may Allah forgive those souls who have left us in the past year, who were amongst us last Ramadhan but are not here today, most importantly my father Al-Haaj Mahmood Hussain, who tragically passed away in a car accident in January earlier this year. May Allah elevate his status and forgive his sins and grant him space under his shade. Ameen.
Alhamdulillah once again the Urs was a success with a great turnout and a multitude of speakers, each paying glowing tributes to Shaykh Muhammad Karam Shah Al-Azhari (RA). The programme started promptly after Dhur prayer and speakers from all over participated in paying their respects to the great Shaykh, teacher, reviver and servant of Islam. Most notable speeches were those of Mufti Iqbal Chishti, Mufti Khan Muhammad Qadri and Shaykh Sayyid Hashmi Mian, who all praised the Shaykh with their words of wisdom and dispelled any doubts in any persons minds as to who the great Shaykh was and in the eyes of people of authority and position, who held a position amongst the elite, Justice Pir Muhammad Karam Shah Al-Azhari (RA) was far from an average individual. He was someone, who according to Mufti Iqbal Chishti, gave the title 'Pir' value and recognition, in a time when the name had lost its worth and importance.
Shaykhuna Pirzada Imdad Hussain reminded the people of the Girls School Project and asked them to donate generously, to which people opened their hearts. It was truly an inspiring event and people left with their souls and spirits replenished and recharged. May Allah raise the rank of Zia ul-Ummat (RA) and through his grace and that of the beloved Prophet peace be upon him grant us success in this life and the hereafter. Finally congratulations are in order for Al-Haj Muhammad Akram sahib from Norway and Allama Najib ur Rahman also from Norway on receiving their Khilafah from Shaykhuna Pirzada Imdad Hussain, may Allah shower his blessings upon them.
Wasalaam wa Rahmatullah.
