The Alimiyyah Course 2015

Event Date: 
Tuesday, 4 August, 2015 - 19:30

Whoever treads a path in search of knowledge, Allah will make easy for him the path to Jannah.[Bukhari]

The Alimiyyah course is an intensive study programme for those brothers and sisters who are able to make a serious commitment to studying sacred knowledge. The course is taught by teachers qualified with a sanad (chain of narration) through which sound knowledge of the Islamic sciences is transmitted, allowing students to gain a deep and comprehensive understanding of the religion.

After completing the course, students are formally qualified as ‘alims/’alimahs and are equipped to put their knowledge to use for the benefit of the community at large. Our full-time curriculum includes detailed study of the Arabic language, including sarf (morphology), nahw (grammar) and spoken and written skills. This then opens the doors for a student to dive into the vast ocean of Islamic knowledge, studying fiqh (jurisprudence), hadith, Qur’an recitation and tafsir (exegesis), as well as legal studies, aqida (theology) and much more. An enrichment programme also provides students with an insight into the broader context of Islam in history, in our current context and equips them with the skills they need to become ambassadors for the Muslim community.

The Alimiyyah course is a long-term, full-time programme that requires considerable effort, commitment and most importantly sincerity, with a view to acting upon the knowledge gained and using it for the benefit of the ummah throughout one’s future life.

Ramadhan Iftaars For New Muslim Sisters

Event Date: 
Friday, 10 July, 2015 - 20:15 to Saturday, 11 July, 2015 - 23:30

"Whoever gives iftaar to the one who is fasting will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the reward of the fasting person in the slightest" [Tirmidhi]

 

Ramadhan is a time of celebration around the Muslim world- a time when families and friends rejoice in the favours of Allah upon us and strengthen bonds of unity by breaking the fast together. Unfortunately for many Muslims who have reverted to Islam they do not have this option, often spending Ramadhan and Eid alone.

At As-Suffa Institute we have been offering Ramadhan Iftaars for New Muslim Sisters for a number of years and will be extending this tradition to this Ramadhan in sha Allah whereby New Muslim Sisters can open the fast with our volunteers and other revert sisters every Friday and Saturday in sha Allah. Please support this cause by remembering us all in your duaas. If you would like to make a monetary donation please visit our JustGiving page and include Ramadhan Iftaar in the comments.

Please spread the word so we can reach as many New Muslim Sisters as possible and ensure they too experience the full love and sisterhood of Islam in this month.

When: Every Friday and Saturday during the month of Ramadhan

Where: As-Suffa Institute, 25 Park Lane, Aston, Birmingham, B6 5DA

RaMaDan FeVeR!

The heat is on! Once a year a dramatic change occurs in the Muslim community. Once a year Icky baby and the Sams becomes Iqbal and Sameera.

Off come the baggy jeans, the Nike 180's and the Raiders cap. On come the yellow Shalwar Kameez (clothes most Pakistanis wear), the brylcreamed hairstyle which glues on that terribly uncool Towpee(cap) and in comes the miswak in the top pocket, making you look like something like "Karachi cops".

It's during this HOLY month of Ramadan that we ditch the daytime raves and the frequent visit to the library (and we don't mean for the reference section) and begin to act it out. Icky baby becomes temporarily religious.

Hijaab is an Attitude, not a Fashion (and it's for Men Too!!)

Wearing the Hijaab isn't just a matter of simply putting a piece of cloth on your head, it is an attitude, a way of thinking and behaving, and accepting yourself for who and what you are. Basically it constitutes an Islamic way of life, it is a statement which indeed should portray a certain attitude.

A woman may indeed wear a long skirt and a scarf, but if she flirts constantly, then she can't be really described as wearing the Hijaab (Indeed clothes should be long, loose and not see through, after which any style of clothing is applicable).

Yes, its that time of year again when we taste the wonderful variety of our family's home cooking. Never in such a short space of time do we encounter such scrumptious meals.

Every evening there will be a knock at the door and the aunty (or a liberated uncle) from next door will oblige with a sample of his or her delicacies and vice versa. Yes you've guessed it- its Ramadhan!

There is feverish activity during this month that is truly unsurpassable. Young children will eagerly get up for Sheri (the morning breakfast) bright eyed and excited for they have been allowed to fast. There will be competitions amongst the youngsters as to who can keep the most fasts, as they never seem to tire.

What is The Islamic/Hijri Calendar?

Author: 
Syed Khalid Shaukat

The Islamic calendar is based on lunar months, which begin when a thin new crescent Moon is actually sighted in the western sky after sunset within a day or so after the New Moon. Hence, the month is either 29 days or 30 days.

There are 12 months in an Islamic year, which is either 354 days long or 355 days long, compared to (Gregorian) civil calendar year of 365 or 366 days. Since the Islamic Lunar year has 12 lunar months, it is on an average, 11 days shorter than the (Gregorian) civil year, the Islamic year shifts earlier in each civil year by about 11 days.

The 12 months of the Islamic calendar are:
