Moon Sighting


The first day of the month of Ramadhan has been confirmed to be Thursday, May 17, 2018


Amongst the sermons of the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) in the end of the month of Sha'ban.


Ramadhan; 'Opportunity Knocks'
Truth is self-evident and it does not require a profound explanation. Man has completely realised that occasional withdrawal from full life not only tends to provide appreciation of life but also to provide a better means to treat and utilise it. This withdrawal can be considered ascetic in the spiritual terminology. Ramadhan becomes the vehicle through which man performs a khalwa while not eating and drinking (fasting). . .


The Holy Qur'an - Read it before you burn it
The book you are about to read is an English translation of the Scripture that Prophet Muhammad said was revealed to him by God, word for word, in the Arabic language. This book is not only still with us in its original form, but the life of the man to whom it was revealed is also recorded in authentic historical records so meticulously that some of the Westerners who studied his life have described him as being "the only historical figure among founders of religions". . .


'Read, in the name of your Lord!'
The emphasis on literacy that began with the Prophet continued with the classical scholars, who saw writing as the foremost means of preserving and transmitting knowledge. This is reflected in the fact that major Islamic centres of learning, such as the Dar al-Hikma in Abbasid Baghdad, began collecting, translating and copying manuscripts on a near-industrial scale. . .

Duas
