We all know that there is no “easy” or “quick” way to achieve a meaningful secular education as learning and studies require commitment. It is only logical that motivation, conviction and time are also necessary for the attainment of knowledge of Aal-e-Mohammed. As we are conscious of finding the right school, the right college and the right mentor in secular education, finding the right source and mentor for the ‘ilm of Aal-e-Mohammed is crucial. When Rasulullah said “seek knowledge even as far away as China” he was stressing the importance of making a conscious effort for ‘ilm and seeking the right source for it.

Kaffaarat for farizat rozas missed in last year’s Ramadan (due to illness, travel, or women’s missed days) is calculable per day at the equivalent rate of grain (i.e. Rs 20 per roza). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org latest by 28th Sha’baan and indicate how many days of missed roza for which you would like to give kaffaraat. You will be responsible to later pay the corresponding amount along with your zakaat. Please indicate the kaffarat amount due in the appropriate section of the zakaat form. It is necessary to let us know number of missed rozas ahead of time, so that we can appropriately plan to donate the specific amounts of grain each day as prescribed by Shari’at.
The 22nd of Shabaan is the Urus of Maulatuna Hurratul Malika Arwa binte Ahmad RA. She was an extraordinarily strong, intelligent and accomplished woman, a fact remarkable in a culture where women were not known for education or independence. Her political acumen and command earned her the name of ‘Bilqis al-Sughra’ (the younger Bilqis, queen of Sheba). Maulatuna Hurratul Malika’s example shines forth like a beacon. She achieved the highest ranks in Deen and Dunya. She set the benchmark, especially for Muminaat, for centuries to come. Click here to read the full article by Shehzada Dr Aziz Bhaisaheb Qutbuddin.
