And when you are asking your Lord, do not forget those…

As Salaam Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah,

Firstly Ramadan Mubarak! Houston announced that Ramadhaan will commence tommorow in other words Saturday. I am also travelling tommorow so i guess I can actually put into practice this fiqh ruling for the first time in Ramadhaan after learning it.

And in the spirit of Ramadan, I suggest this to read

Congratulating Each Other at the Commencement of Ramadan by Hood Bradford

And secondly, in follwing Hood’s reccomendation – Br. Abu Eesa’s article is a good one –

Ramadhân: Have You Got What It Takes? by Abu Eesa Niamatullah

Also if possible get these two or just borrow them froma  friend if they have it – 186 rules of Ramadhaan or How to make this your best Ramadhan ever by Shaykh Waleed Basyouni from ChinarLeaf. 186 Rules of Ramadhan is very good for fiqh masha’Allah. Shaykh Waleed has a certains tyle which has grown on me, I dont knwo if other will necessarily liek it. But if you want to listen to a live lecture I believe this Sunday at Masjid Mu’mineen in Houston, TX at 5 PM inshaAllah he will be speaking. Someone should verify that.

Also we should try to work on wakign up for Qiyaam al Layl – some tips can be found here from IslamQAJazakAllahu khayran to Sr. Ruqayya for this on
And when you are prostrating to your Lord in the middle of the night asking Allah to bless you with such and such, do not forget those who are suffering and oppressed and those working and fighting for justice and for the sake of Allah.

For now I leave you with this.. It might be 2 years old, many of these poeple are still being detained. DOnt forget your brothers in Guantanamo and the rest of the world.

May Allah give us the ability to do this!
