Asalamu’ Alaikum Brothers & Sisters,

I’m sure your all looking forward to the blessed month of Ramadan which is fast approaching. We very busy in our preparation and would like to take this opportunity to remind you all of the projects we are fund raising for. Please take this opportunity to be part of this nobel cause.

MYF Projects

We have 4 Projects we are fund raising for:

PROJECT ONE:

Daily Iftaar during the blessed month of Ramadan to feed between 100 – 200 brothers & sisters.

It’s very important that we prepare for the blessed month of Ramadan. Help support our noble projects and please donate for the sake of Allah!

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Every Muslim has to give in charity.” The people then asked: “(But what) if someone has nothing to give, what should he do?” The Prophet replied: “He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns).” The people further asked: “If he cannot find even that?” He replied: “He should help the needy who appeal for help.” Then the people asked: “If he cannot do (even) that?” The Prophet said finally: “Then he should perform good deeds and keep away from evil deeds, and that will be regarded as charitable deeds.” – Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 2, Hadith 524

Please donate generously either on-line via Paypal or call the office for more details on how to donate to our Ramadan Projects.

Pause to think about hardships

Do not be sad, for sadness will weaken your determination and the quality of your worship. One of the offshoots of depression is that it often causes one to be pessimistic, to find blame in everyone, including — and we seek refuge in Allah – Allah Himself.

Do not be sad, for sadness, grief, and anxiety are the roots of mental problems, the sources of stress.
Do not be sad, for you have with you the Qur’an, supplication, remembrance, and prayer. You can lighten the load of your anxiety by giving others, doing well, and being productive. Read more

Satisfaction is richness and safety

Whoever fills his heart with satisfaction regarding the Divine Decree, Allah fills his heart with richness, safety, and comfort. And whoever becomes dissatisfied, then his heart will be filled with the opposite, and his heart will be preoccupied with matters that clash with happiness and success.

Jummah Prayer Times For Friday Prayers

Jumma Prayer Times

First Jummah 12.15pm – 12.45pm

Second Jummah 1.15pm – 1.45pm

I heard Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) saying, “We (Muslims) are the last (to come) but (will be) the foremost on the Day of Resurrection though the former nations were given the Holy Scriptures before us. And this was their day (Friday) the celebration of which was made compulsory for them but they differed about it. So Allah gave us the guidance for it (Friday) and all the other people are behind us in this respect: the Jews’ (holy day is) tomorrow (i.e. Saturday) and the Christians’ (is) the day after tomorrow (i.e. Sunday).”

The art of happiness

Among the greatest of blessings is to have a calm, stable, and happy heart. For in happiness the mind is clear, enabling one to be a productive person. It has been said that happiness is an art that needs to be learned. And if you learn it, you will be blessed in this life. But how does one learn it? A basic principle of achieving happiness is having an ability to endure and to cope with any situation. Therefore you should neither be swayed nor governed by difficult circumstances, nor should you be annoyed by insignificant trifles. Based on the purity of the heart and its ability to endure, a person will shine. When you train yourself to be patient and forbearing, then hardship and calamity will be easy for you to bear.
