How to benefit in Ramadan even during Menses by Asma bint Shameem

 In the name of Allah
Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

I see many sisters, who are ma sha' Allaah, very enthusiastic about their prayers, duas and
Ibaadah during the month of Ramadhaan. But, come their time for menses, it's like
someone turned their switch 'off'. They completely stop all forms of worship and think
that their menses is a reason to take a 'vacation' from remembering Allaah....totally. They
start spending their time shopping, watching TV or just doing other stuff, just because they
are 'on it', although previously they were very eager to spend their time remembering
And then, there are some of my sisters, who are genuinely very distraught and feel kind of
deprived and sad and so helpless that they cannot pray or fast during these days.
Naturally, they stop praying and fasting, as per the orders of Allaah, but then, they also
stop all other forms of worship and means of coming close to their Rabb.
This is so much so that even during the last ten nights of Ramadhaan, instead of searching
for Laylatul Qadr, the night in which worship is better than a thousand months, although
they feel bad about missing out, they sleep through it, just because they are having their
menses, thinking there is nothing they can do.
And thus, they lose out on the countless blessings, tremendous goodness and precious
moments of this beautiful month.
So what's a woman to do during this time?
1. Submit to the decree of Allaah:
Dear sister, don't feel sad or deprived. Realize that Allaah has decreed for all women to
have menses. It's not just you. All women have to go through this. And when the time for
it comes, it comes.
Once our Mother, Aaisha Radhi Allaahu Anha was accompanying the Prophet (sal Allaahu
Alayhi wa sallam) on Hajj when she got her period. This made her sad and she started
The Prophet (sal Allaahu Alayhi wa sallam) consoled her, saying:
"This is something which Allaah has decreed for the daughters of Adam.” (Bukhaari)
Dear sister, never forget that Islaam means submission....submission to Allaah and His
rules. Submitting to His rules IS Ibaadah. And it was Allaah Who ordered you to stop
praying and fasting in the first place. So when you give up praying or fasting during your
menses, realize that you are obeying Allaah and worshipping Him by submitting to His
Orders. Realize that not praying or fasting during your menses is Ibaadah itself.
Remember, it's all about doing things the way Allaah wants. That's Islaam. That's Ibaadah.
Also know that if you can not fast due to a valid Shar'i reason then Allaah will reward you,
just as if you were fasting. The Prophet (sal Allaahu Alayhi wa sallam) said:
"When a slave of Allaah falls ill or goes on a journey, he is credited with the same amount
of recompense as he used to do in his state of health or when he was at home". (Bukhaari)
2. Reciting the Qur'aan:
Although there is a difference of opinion, many of the scholars, including Ibn Abbaas,
Imaam Bukhaari, Ibn Taymiyah, Ibn Baaz, Shaikh al‐Albaani, etc said that it is okay for a
woman on her menses to read the Qur'aan, without touching it directly.
Shaykh al‐Islam Ibn Taymiyah said: “There is no clear, saheeh text to indicate that a
menstruating woman is forbidden to recite Qur’aan… It is known that women used to
menstruate at the time of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him), and he did not forbid them to recite Qur’aan, or to remember Allaah (dhikr) and
offer du’aa’.”
And Shaikh Ibn Baaz said: "It is permissible for the woman who is menstruating or bleeding
following childbirth to recite Qur’aan according to the more correct of the two scholarly
opinions. " (Majmoo‘ Fataawa Ibn Baaz, 10/209)
If you want to be extra careful about not touching the Mushaf, you can also read the
Qur'aan off of the Internet or on your cell phone.
3. Read the meanings and tafseer of the Qur'aan:
Pick up a good tafseer of the Qur'aan and read it. There is no Tahaarah required for it.
Reflect on the words of your Rabb, ponder over the meanings and understand what Allaah
is saying to us. These ayaat,my sister, are not there just for us to read; rather to interact
with them, and implement them in our lives. Allaah says:
"(This is a) Book that We have sent down to you, full of blessings, so that they may ponder
over its aayaat, and that those of understanding may remember." [Surah Saad:29]
And what better time would we have than now, to read the translation and tafseer, to
understand the meanings of this Noble Book, so that we can achieve guidance?
"And We have indeed made the Qur'aan easy to understand and remember, then is there
any that will remember (or receive admonition)?" (Surah al‐Qamar:17)
4. Listening to the Qur'aan:
There's nothing like listening to a beautiful recitation of the Qur'aan, especially at times
when you are feeling down, such as because of your period. It fills the heart with such
tranquility, such peace that no words can describe. It increases Imaan and brings you great
rewards since listening to the Qur'aan with an attentive heart is an act of Ibaadah in itself.
The Sahaabah loved to listen to the Qur'aan being recited and even the Prophet (sal
Allaahu Alayhi wa sallam) would sometimes listen to the Qur'aan from other people and
he would cry.
Abdullaah ibn Mas’ood said: "The Messenger of Allaah (sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) said
to me: “Recite the Qur'aan to me.” I said: O Messenger of Allaah, should I recite to you
when it was revealed to you? He said: “I like to hear it from someone else.” So I recited al‐
Nisa’, and when I reached the verse, “How (will it be) then, when We bring from each
nation a witness and We bring you (O Muhammad صلى لله عليه وسلم ) as a witness against
these people?” [al‐Nisa’ 4:41], I raised my head....and I saw his tears flowing.. (Bukhaari,
So play a beautiful recitation of your favorite Qaari, close your eyes and listen attentively.
Let the Words of the Lord of the Worlds echo in the room, filling your ears, your mind,
your whole being. Let those ayaat penetrate deep into you until your heart shakes and
your skin shivers...and then Believe. And Submit.
5. Do a lot of Dhikr:
Keep your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allaah, when you are on your period
and when you are not. There is nothing like it. It is one of the most beloved deeds to
Allaah and His Messenger (sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) and gets you tremendous
rewards. And yet, it's so easy, Alhamdulillaah.
The Prophet (sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) said:
"The uttering of the words: "Subhaan Allaah, Alhamdulillaah, La ilaha illAllaah and Allaahu
Akbar' is dearer to me than anything over which the sun rises.'' (Muslim)
And he (sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) said to Abu Dardaa', "Shall I not inform you of the
best of your action which is the purest to your Rabb, which raises your status, which is
better for you than spending gold and silver, and better for you than that you meet your
enemies and cut off their necks or you yourselves achieve martyrdom?'' They said,
"Certainly.'' He (sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) said, "It is the remembrance of Allah the
Exalted.'' (Tirmidhi‐hasan)
"He who utters a hundred times in a day these words: `La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la
sharika lahu, lahul‐mulku wa lahul‐hamdu, wa Huwa `ala kulli sha'in Qadir (there is no true
god except Allah. He is One and He has no partner with Him; His is the sovereignty and His
is the praise, and He is Omnipotent),' he will have a reward equivalent to that for
emancipating ten slaves, a hundred good deeds will be recorded to his credit, hundred of
his (minor) sins will be blotted out from his scroll, and he will be safeguarded against the
devil on that day till the evening; and no one will exceed him in doing more excellent good
deeds except someone who has recited these words more often than him. And he who
utters: `Subhan‐Allahi wa bihamdihi (Allah is free from imperfection and His is the praise)'
one hundred times a day, his sins will be obliterated even if they are equal to the extent of
the foam of the ocean.'' (Bukhaari and Muslim)
Subhaan Allaah! Could anyone ask for more? So keep yourself busy with the dhikr of
Allaah and recite the morning and evening adhkaar (supplications) and other forms of
dhikr prescribed from the Sunnah, while eating, drinking, sleeping, wearing clothes, going
out of the house, etc. and Allaah will remember you in turn.
Besides, there is also no need for Tahaarah to remember Allaah. You can do this even
when you are cooking, cleaning, driving the kids to school, etc.
Such immense rewards for such easy tasks....Subhaan Allaah!
6. Make lots and lots of dua:
Ramadhaan is the month of blessings, mercy and forgiveness. And it is also the month for
begging. Yes, begging. For, He is al‐Kareem, the Most Generous and we are destitute. He is
the Giver and we are in desperate, desperate need of His Mercy, His Kindness, His
Blessings and His Forgiveness.
So go ahead and make dua, lots and lots of it; for dua is one of the best acts of Ibaadah.
The Prophet (sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) said, “Dua is ‘Ibaadah (worship).” 
(Tirmidhi saheeh by Albaani).
And don't just make dua. Beg. Beg for your dunya. Beg for your Aakhirah. Beg for yourself
and for your family. And for the Ummah. Beg for every possible thing you can think of.
Spread out those hands in humble submission to the One Who gives all and sustains all
from His limitless Treasures and Bounties. Ask and He will give you. Beg and He will suffice
7. Do plenty of Istighfaar:
My sister, Ramadhaan is THE month of repentance.
The Prophet (sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) said: "Jibreel said to me, `May he be destroyed,
the person who Ramadan comes and his sins are not forgiven,' and I said, Ameen'....."
(Saheeh al‐Jaami')
Subhaan Allaah! What better a chance to have your sins forgiven than this? Now is your
chance. The gates of Jannah are open and the gates of Hell are shut, and the sinners’
repentance to Allaah is accepted. So don't let this chance go by just because you are on
your menses. Make sincere repentance to Allaah and cry over your sins. He is al‐Ghafoor,
the Oft‐Forgiver and He will forgive you. Allaah is calling out to you and me......
"Say: “Ya ‘Ibaadi (O my slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing
evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allaah, verily, Allaah forgives all sins.
Truly, He is Oft‐Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Surah Zumar: 53)
And don't forget to make the best form of dua when seeking Laylatul Qadr.
Aaisha RA said: “I said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, if I know which night is Laylat al‐Qadr, what
should I say on that night?’ He said, ‘Say:
اللھم إنك عفو تحب العفو فاعف عني
Allaahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibb al‐‘afwa fa’affu ‘anni
(O Allaah, You are forgiving and You love forgiveness, so forgive me).” (Tirmidhi‐ saheeh)
8. Send blessings upon the Prophet (sal Allaahu Alayhi wa sallam):
Send blessings upon the Prophet (sal Allaahu Alayhi wa sallam) in abundance as this is one
of the greatest means of having duas answered, and is a great way of earning rewards
from Allaah. It can easily be done any time, in almost any place with no prerequisites of
Allaah Himself sends his blessings upon the Prophet (sal Allaahu Alayhi wa sallam) and so
do the angels. And this act has been enjoined upon us by Allaah.
"Allaah and His angels praise and venerate the Prophet (Muhammad). O you who believe!
Praise and venerate him (Muhammad) and pronounce peace upon him in abundance." (al‐
9. Thank Allaah:
All Praise is due to Allaah Alone, Who gives His sinful slaves a chance to earn multiple
rewards, have their sins forgiven and their duas accepted. It is only He Who gave you a
chance to do this. It is only He Who blessed you with the biggest blessing that could ever
be. And that is the blessing of Islaam. It is He Who made you Muslim, enabled you to live
to witness Ramadhaan and Who give you the opportunity to worship Him. And even
having your period is a reason for you to give thanks to Him.
So give thanks to Him from the bottom of your heart, and show your gratitude to the one
Who gave you all that you possess, for this season of goodness and blessing that He has
bestowed upon you, and for all the bounties and immense blessings for which He has
singled you out.
10. Seek knowledge:
Seeking Islaamic knowledge is one of the best forms of Ibaadah and a great source of
blessings and rewards. It is the way that leads to Jannah. The Prophet (sal Allaahu Alayhi
wa sallam) said:
"He who embarks on the path of seeking knowledge, Allah will ease for him the way to
paradise." (Muslim)
And he said:
Allaah, His angels and all those in the heavens and in the earth, even the ants in their holes
and the fish in the water, pray for those who instruct people in beneficent knowledge."
You don't have to have Tahaarah for seeking knowledge so pick up some good books of
authentic Islaamic information or go on the Internet. There are wonderful, lectures and
reminders by great shuyookh as well as Imaan‐boosting articles and other audio/video
material where a lot can be learned.
11. Give charity:
Ibn Abbas RA said: “The Prophet (sal Allaahu Alayhi wa sallam) was the most generous of
the people, and he used to be even more so in the month of Ramadan....he would be more
generous than a swift wind (bringing rain).” (Bukhaari)
So give and give and give for the sake of Allaah during this month. Be the most generous at
the time of your menses and you will earn great rewards, bi idhnillaah. Spend in the path
of Allaah, feed the poor, sponsor an orphan and donate to your masjid.
Also charity is not just about money. You can be generous with your time, with your help
to someone in need, and in your manners. So having good manners is charity and helping
your non Muslim neighbor is charity and making iftar for someone is charity. Looking after
someone's young children while they can go pray at the masjid is charity and cleaning up
the masjid after everyone leaves is also charity.
12. Do all kinds of good deeds:
Ibaadah just isn't about praying and fasting. It's also about how you deal with people and
doing all kinds of good deeds. So you can earn rewards and worship Allaah in your menses
by serving your parents, keeping up the ties of kinship, being kind to everyone, giving
dawah, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, etc. etc.
The bottom line, my dear sister, is that there is absolutely nothing preventing you from
worshipping your Rabb and gaining tremendous rewards during the month of Ramadhaan
or even at other times. Your menses is NOT a hindrance in your path to Jannah. All that is
needed is your effort, the right good intentions and sincerity on your part. Just leave the
rest to Allaah.
May Allaah accept our deeds from us and enable us to worship Him and thank Him in this
month and at all times of our lives. Ameen.

Do's & Don'ts Of Fasting

• It is important to make the intention of obligatory (fard) fast before Fajr time.( AbuDawood)
• Eating before fajr (Taking Suhur ) is a recommended sunnah
“The Prophet said, "Take Suhur, as there is a blessing in it." (Bukhari)    
“If the Fajr Adhaan starts while you are eating sehri, instead of leaving what you were eating, you should quickly eat it.( Abu Dawood)
Fasting person should not misbehave or fight
“Allah's Apostle said, “Fasting is a shield (or a screen or a shelter). So, the person observing fast should avoid sexual relations with his wife and should not behave foolishly and impudently, and if somebody fights with him or abuses him, he should tell him twice, 'I am fasting." (Bukhari)

Fasting person should not lie or commit evil deeds
“The Prophet said, "Whoever does not give up forged speech and evil actions, Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and drink (i.e. Allah will not accept his fasting.)" (Bukhari)
“Backbiting, lying, fighting, abusing, profanities and arguing corrupts the fast.(Bukhari)
Cracking dirty jokes, obscene vulgar actions, immoral behaviour and conversations on vulgar topics are all forbidden in the state of fasting. (Ibn Khuzaima) (such things are forbidden even under normal conditions but such deeds while fasting corrupts the fast.)

Things that do and do not break the fast 

“Due to extreme heat, the fasting person is allowed to take a shower and rinse his mouth with water. This does not break the fast.(Abu Dawood)
“Eating out of forgetfulness does not break the fast. But as soon as a the person
realizes that he/she was fasting, then the food in the mouth should be
immediately spitted out. (Bukhari)
“There is no harm in swallowing the saliva while fasting." (Bukhari)
“Applying kohl in the eyes does not break the fast." (Bukhari)
“If the need arises, the food can be tasted (for salt etc), but it should be tasted by placing
it at the edge of the tongue. But utmost care should be taken that it should not
reach the throat."( Bukhari)
• The blood that comes out of the teeth does not harm the fast however the blood should not be swallowed.
• A fasting person is allowed to smell and wear fragrance.
“Vomiting unintentionally does not break the fast, however if someone vomits deliberately then this breaks the fast." ( Abu Dawood)
“Letting blood by means of leeches etc (for treatment purposes) during fasting is allowed."(Sahih Bukhari)
If nose drops are used while fasting and if they reach the throat or the stomach, then the fast is broken." (Bukhari)
An injection that does not nourish and its purpose is not to provide energy or nourishment but it is only used as a medicine, then such an injection is allowed while fasting. However if the injection is the type that provides nourishment to sustain the body without food and drink then such an injection breaks the fast.
“While fasting it is not allowed to sniff the water too high in the nose that there may be danger that the water might reach the throat."(Tirmizi)

• A person who intentionally eats or drinks something while fasting, then he should sincerely repent and make up for the fast.
• While fasting in Ramadan, if a husband forcefully has intercourse with his wife then this would not break the fast of the wife and she does not have to make up for it. However the husband is guilty of sin and he has to repent and make up for the fast by freeing a slave and if that is not possible then he has to fast continuously for two months and if that too is not possible then he has to feed sixty needy people. (Agreed upon)
A lustful thought which leads to ejaculation of semen (mani) does not break the fast." (Bukhari)
However ejaculation of semen due to any other intentional activity or intimacy or due to watching immodest things breaks the fast.
“ Wet dreams, while sleeping does not invalidate the fast as this happens unintentionally."(Bukhari)
“Discharge of Mathi - prostatic fluid while fasting does not break the fast.( Bukhari)
[Mathi is the fluid discharged due to lustful arousal before semen is ejaculated] Masnoon and Recommended Acts while fasting
• Eating Iftar ( eating at maghrib time to break fast) should not be delayed and should be eaten as soon as the sun sets (Maghrib time) which is a sunnah of our Prophet.(Agreed Upon)
• The one who offers and provides iftari to a fasting person, gets the reward equivalent to a fast.
“Using siwaak while fasting is proven from the sunnah." ( Sahih Bukhari)
• It is a sunnah to recite the Quran and to revise it in Ramadan. ( Agreed Upon
• Giving charity generously in the month of Ramadan is the sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhe Wasallam.(Agreed Upon)
• Taraweeh is a nafil (voluntary) prayer which is also called Tahajjud or Qayam ul Lail.
• The masnoon rakaat of taraweeh is 8, however since it is a nafil prayer the number of rakaat can be increased or decreased.(Agreed Upon)
• In the last ten days of Ramadan, encouraging your family to perform worship is the sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhe Wasallam.(Agreed Upon)
“A person who is unable to benefit from the most blessed night of the year lailatul Qadr is a loser."(Ibn Majah)
“ Lailatul Qadr should be searched in the last ten odd nights of Ramadan." (Bukhari)
• Sitting in seclusion- Itekaf in the Masjid during Ramadan is an obligatory sunnah which is obligatory on the Muslim community (Sunnat e Mokada Kafaya) and its duration is ten days. ( Agreed Upon)
“ Women should also sit in Itekaf." (Muslim)
• Missed fasts of Ramadan should be kept any time before the start of the next Ramadan.(Agreed Upon)
“ Keeping six fasts in Shawwal is highly recommended after Ramadan."(Muslim)

Those who are exempted from fasting
• A person, who due to extreme old age or an incurable disease is unable to fast, then he should feed one poor person in exchange for every day of missed fast.(Darqutni)
• A person who was ill and left fasting in Ramadan but then later regains health and does not make up for the missed fasts and dies, then his inheritors have to make up for his missed fasts.(Agreed upon)
• If it is difficult or dangerous for the health of the mother and child then pregnant and breast feeding women can leave the fasts, however they have to necessarily make up for the missed fasts later on.( Agreed upon)
• It is better for a traveller to leave the fast, however there is also no harm if the traveller fasts while on a journey because sometimes Prophet Sallallahu AlayheWasallam observed fasting while travelling and sometimes he would leave fasting while travelling. Both are acceptable.

Hadith lesson: Hadith 15- 4th July, 2013 by teacher Reda


Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger uf' Allah(peace be upon hirn) said, 'Anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day should say what' is good or keep silent. And anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day should be generous with his neighbor. And anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day should be generous with his guest/ (Recorded by Al-Bukhary and Muslim)
This hadith contains the rulings concerning the tongue and the behavior of Muslims towards others. It also emphasizes that we are responsible for what we say. If this hadith is properly practiced and applied, then there will be a strong bond and love within the society or community.
The responsibility of the Muslim regarding what he says is mentioned in the Qur'an: "Not a word does he utter but there is a watcher by him ready to record it" [Surah Qaf (50): ayat 18]. One hadith (which illustrates the example of a bad consequence resulting from what a person says) states that the Prophet, (peace be upon them), said that a pious man from Bani Israel use to see his fellow man always committing sins. On day the pious man swore to the sinner: "By Allah, He will never forgive you." Allah was displeased with what the pious man said because only Allah knows what is our destiny, whether someone will end up in Paradise or Hell. Because of this, when the two men died, the pious man was punished and put into Hell and the sinner was forgiven by Allah. [Sunan Abu Daud] What we can learn here is that either we say something beneficial and good or else we should keep silent.
There are many Islamic guidelines which help us to say good things and to refrain from saying bad things, or things which displeases Allah. When we talk to others, whether it is relatives, friends, neighbours, etc., we should select the best terms/words and say them in a nice way. We should ensure that what we say is clear and easily understood. If we are not careful and we do not choose the right words, what we say may be misinterpreted and may lead to conflicts.
 As a listener, we have to listen positively and interpret what we hear in a good way. We should not 'over interpret' what we hear; we should not try to 'read between the lines'. Thus, as a speaker we say things in a positive manner and as a listener we interpret things in a positive manner. By doing so Islam encourages us to minimize disputes and conflicts. If we find ourselves in the middle of a dispute between two people, e.g. between relatives, we should not take sides. We should try to help and reconcile the differences; try to resolve the problems and end the dispute.
If we are being consulted by someone and asked for our advice, we should try our best to give good advice. What we say should help the person and not add to his confusion or doubt. If we do not have enough knowledge and we cannot provide proper advice, then we should keep
silent. Even if we have information which, as a result, may add to the person's confusion, we should keep it to ourselves. We should keep away as best as we can from unnecessary or non-beneficial talk. People can talk or chat for hours but a lot of what is said is unimportant or trivial and does not benefit anyone. It wastes our time and this continuous talking may even lead us into areas where we might say something which displeases Allah The exalted. When it comes to saying good things, there are many examples available (remembrance of Allah), reciting the Qur'an, supplication, giving advice, etc. These are all things which are pleasing to Allah. When we meet people who are sick, sad, feeling down, in a low frame of mind, etc., we should say things that will make these people feel better, have patience in facing their calamity, be positive, be strong, etc.
This is known as al-muasah - to say good things of encouragement to
help those facing problems; to not make them panic. The scholars have defined patience as 'to refrain from panicking' - to refrain from being out of control - and to refrain the tongue from complaining. Complaining, e.g. simply saying that the weather is hot, will lead us to impatience; it can affect our attitude and hence our work. If we want to lament we should lament only with Allah. If we do it with Allah, it will turn into worship. If we do it with others it will be complaining, we will be violating the worship itself, which is patience. So we should learn to minimize and ultimately eliminate the act of complaining. We should refrain from saying bad things or things which may be untrue. When we hear some news, we shouldn't simply repeat it or spread it without first verifying if the news is true. This could lead to us spreading lies or rumors. We must refrain from: spreading rumors, especially those that will cause harm to the community. Slandering, back-biting, etc. sarcasm and making fun of others - this is one of the most common social ills today. It is a sin to make fun of others. Sometimes we may encounter a situation which involves sedition. We have to be careful of what we say. There are people who will take advantage of the situation and they may say things which may worsen the situation. When there is sedition, people are in a panic and might believe anything. That's why we have to be careful of what we say because it may add to the people's fears and problems. What we should do is to help by saying positive things that will give the people hope; to uplift them and motivate them to face the problems; and not to make it
The second part of this hadith stresses on being courteous and generous to our neighbours and guests. This is stated in the Qur'an - Surah An-Nisa'(4): ayat 36: "…do good to parents, relatives, orphans, the poor, the neighbour who is near of kin, the neighbour who is a stranger, the companion by your side, the wayfarer (you meet), and those (slaves) whom your right hand possess."
In one hadith, the Prophet, (peace be upon them),, said: "Jibril kept advising me concerning the neighbour to the point that I thought that he would inherit from his neighbour." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]. In another hadith [also recorded by Al-Bukhari and Muslim], it is stated: "Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should not harm his neighbour." Another hadith records the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, as saying that the person who does not have complete faith (iman) is the one from whose affairs the neighbour is not safe. Al-Bukhari and Muslim also records another hadith which states that when you cook stew, you should add a little bit more water and give some to your neighbours. This sharing of food between neighbours can strengthen the relationships between them. We should be nice to our neighbours and share our food even if they are not Muslims. We should be patient with our neighbour even if he causes annoyance to us. In a hadith, the Prophet, (peace be upon them),, said that there are three types of people whom Allah loves. One of them is a person who has a neighbour who causes him harm or annoyance but he remains patient and tolerates the neighbour. The 'guest' mentioned in the last part of the hadith is generally interpreted as a travelling visitor who has come to stay for a short while. One hadith states: "Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should be generous to his guest.
His special gift (to the guest)is one day and night. He (the guest) is to be entertained for three days. Whatever is beyond that is an act of charity. It is not lawful for a guest to stay with his host to the extent that he makes things difficult for him (the host)." [Al-Bukhari]. Thus, the visitor should not take advantage of a generous host. Regarding this ruling, the majority of the scholars are of the opinion that hosting, in general, is recommended (mustahab) and not obligatory (wajib), even though it is a great and noble act. According to many scholars, the recommended act of hosting does not extend to evildoers or heretics. But some great scholars of today say that we should entertain even evildoers. This is because if we are good Muslims, when we host them and be good to them, we might influence them and cause them to change and become better people. But we should be very cautious if we were to host these sorts of people - we should only do so if we know there will not be any harm that may be inflicted on us. Hosting evildoers would be following a general principle of Fiqh which allows us to tolerate a minor harm (e.g. allowing an evildoer to stay with us) in order to attain a major benefit (e.g. influencing him into becoming a good Muslim).
This hadith teaches us the proper manners pertaining to speech and entertaining guests. Following the advice given by the Prophet, (peace be upon them),, will lead to a more peaceful life and harmonious Islamic society in this life, and attaining the pleasure of Allah in the Hereafter. `

A Humble Reminder for Each of Us

In the name of Allah 
Assalaamu alaykum my beloved sisters 

Praise and thanks be to Allah , we praise HIM and than HIM always for HIS mercy and blessing toward us- alhumdulillah we are about to reach another Ramadan.

We would like to give special thanks to all of our teachers. Everyone of you had done a great help and wonderful job to help our students. We only ask Allah sincerely to accept and reward you all with highest jannah, ameen.

We would also like to thank all of our lovely students, who are always working hard to seek knowledge and seek to improve themselves. We hope that you always remember to apply what you have learnt and be sincere to all people you meet and sincere at all things you do because we are members of those who struggle to work for hereafter. So please continue to ask Allah to guide us and support us to reach success.

As you all know Ramadan is just about a week away .... 
It is time for us to prepare for its arrival, so here are my humble suggestions:

1)  Rush to make up any days you missed to fast last Ramadan 

2) Do Tawbah ( repentance ) to Allah, ask for HIS forgiveness and guidance. Do it to clean your mind and heart, repent from all of your sins, regret from what you had done wrong and promise to never return again.

3) Quit sinning and bad habits: 
such as smoking, or missing morning prayers 
ensure you are not backbiting, slandering ,watching too much TV or  talking about useless things, spending time online chatting or spend much time on facebook or phone chatting etc... 

3) Get a Ramadan schedule
you may go to this link :

:: Prayer Finder (Prayer Times & Islamic Organizations)

Look for your prayer time 
Example : find other countries   your location: United Kingdom 
it will show prayer time over all the UK
you choose a city: for example London
you click on city    London 
it will show only London prayer time like this 
and you will also find  
click on it , thats the Ramadan prayers time , you can print out to make plan of your Ramadan schedule 

All sisters could follow the same method to find the Ramadan time table in your city.
This will help you to observe the Ramadan and help to plan your daily life schedule better

4)  Make a Ramadan schedule ( worship time table ) and plan
       to gain rewards and catch the night of Qadr 
      including all of your prayers time, Taraweh prayers, Qiyam prayers 
      time of reading Quran, attend classes online etc... 

5)  Make a study plan for Ramadan 
     specially of Tafsir / Hadeeth /or other related Islamic studies 

6)  Study / review all your knowledge about Fasting in Ramadan

7)Start cutting your food and drinks to help your body get used to receive Ramadan fasting

8) Increase your worshiping deeds :

 such as start praying Qiyam prayer ( night prayers ) ,making duaa and dhikr more 

9)  start to work out to raise your emaan and spirit

10) make a list of Iftar plan and Eid gifts : 
whom you will invite from family ,friends or poor people to invite them for iftar dinner
prepare earlier, so you will not forget to invite anyone you don't want to miss 
Make a Eid gift list and people you wish to give to from now , so it wont take your time in Ramadan ,and you have better mind and time to plan and shop your gifts from now.

11) Teach your kids to make a study / worship plan for Ramadan 

teach them to make poster, or decoration of the Ramadan at home 
make a study plan or worship plan to train them how to receive and spend Ramadan better 
or even help them to plan a Ramadan iftar party with their friends ( that is specially for kids and encourage kids to love Ramadan instead of loving birthday party or the like )

12) Zakaat , Charity :

Give charity and Zakaat as much as you are required and as much as you can.... 

13) Community service and mosque activities :

check the mosque if need any help to cook Iftar, attend mosque activities to help as you can
attend Ramadan iftar in mosque or help mosque to send food to poor or cook for the homeless etc.. attend the lessons and activities your local mosque offers.

14) Stay patient and thankful to Allah, ask always for HIS mercy and guidance. Be kind to each other ( whether human or animals )

P.S. All our classes will be stopped during Ramadan except Quran recitation/ memorization
A new schedule will be forward to all before the arrival of Ramadan. Please make time to attend.

** During Ramadan we will have a daily Quran English translation reading class
every one will take part to read in turn.  Daily we are reading 20 pages and every year we finish whole Quran English translation reading during Ramadan. So we invite you to participate to help you to understand Quran meaning better and to work to gain rewards.

We hope that the above reminder will help you to spend a better and fruitful Ramadan.
Please do not forget to make duaa for all of our teachers and their families!
