The Journey to Paradise programme continues as usual this Sunday InshaAllah at the MYF with brother Hamza.

Over the coming weeks, brother Hamza will be going through a topic called “Allah’s Guidance” which explains the guidance that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has sent down in Quran and what this means to us as believers.

“Allah’s guidance” is the perfect way for Muslims to understand their Deen in a simple and interactive way, to learn, understand, and implement the guidance of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala in our lives.

Please make sure you attend and invite other revert brothers and sisters as well.

Please note: “This programme is strictly for revert brothers and sisters only”

Bilal Ibn Rabah RA

Bilal Ibn Rabah RA was the first announcer of the time of Muslim prayer and the troublemaker to the idols. He was one of the miracles of faith and truthfulness, one of Islam’s great miracles. For out of every ten Muslims, from the beginning of Islam until today and until Allah wills, we will meet seven, at least, who know Bilal. That is, there are hundreds of millions of people throughout the centuries and generations who know Bilal, remember his name, and know his role just as they know the two greatest Caliphs in Islam, Abu Bakr RA and Umar RA!
