Eid Mubarak

Every challenge brings about opportunity. This year, the month of Ramadan has been like no other. We have been deprived of visiting the mosque, and had no communal iftaars, amongst other things. However, Allah Ta’ala has afforded us an opportunity to worship him differently and create a better environment within our homes, allowing us to enjoy worship differently. As the month of Ramadan comes to its climax, this challenge will still be present in the manner we celebrate our Eid. Once again we will be faced with creating opportunities to enjoy Eid differently but the happiness and joy of Eid will always remain. This is because believers celebrate Eid by thanking Allah Ta’ala for allowing us to worship him extensively without any distractions due the environment Allah Ta’ala has created for us. I take this opportunity to wish one and all EID MUBARAK. We thank you for your ongoing support. May Allah Ta’ala accept all our good deeds, forgive our sins and make this month be a means of restoring normality to our lives as well as gaining closeness to Him. May this occasion unite our hearts and inspire us to be contributors to society. Aameen

Ramadan Mubarak

Assalam u alaykum wr wb dear staff, students, parents and caregivers

As the month of Ramadan dawns upon us, we take this opportunity to wish one and all well over this blessed month. May Allah make this month be a means of restoring normality to our lives as well as gaining closeness to Him. The month of Ramadan is a month of extensive worship and spiritual reflection. Due to all the challenges we are currently facing, it will be the responsibility of every individual to motivate oneself and our family to create a spiritual environment within our homes. May Allah make this task easy for us and allow us to gain maximum benefit from this beautiful month. This month should also create the feeling of compassion and empathy within us. Let us remember those who are suffering around the world in our supplication (duas), and where possible, try and open our hearts and pockets to assist others financially as well. May Allah accept all our worship and forgive our shortcomings. Aameen

We wish one and all a Ramadan Kareem and Ramadan Mubarak

Virtues and Etiquettes of Dua

Virtue of Dua

Allah Ta’ala says in the Quran in between the verses of fasting:
“And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.” (Baqarah verse 186)

Nabi (SAW)said : “ Dua is worship” Tirmidhi
