20 08 2009


The moon has not been sighted and therefore Ramadan will start on Saturday the 22nd of August 2009, insha’Allaah.

“O you who believe! Observing As-Saum (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqoon (the pious).”Al-Qur’an 2:183

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever fasts Ramadaan out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.” (Al-Bukhari & Muslim). And al-Bukhaari and Muslim also narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever spends the nights of Ramadaan in prayer out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.”

Ramadan 2008 Has Been Announced!!!

31 08 2008


Ramadan 1429

Announcement: The holy fasting month of Ramadan will start Monday, September 1,

“There was no evidence of any person seeing the new crescent today,” Saudi Arabia’s Judicial Council confirmed in a statement on Saturday, August 30. Therefore, Sunday, August 31, will be the last day of the month of Sha`ban and Ramadan will fall on Monday, September 1, added the council.

 Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (s) instructed: “Fast after you have seen it [the new crescent moon] and end the fast [i.e Ramadan, at the end of the month ] when you see it. If it is hidden from you (i.e the moon), then wait until the thirty days of Sha’ban have passed.” [Hadith Bukhari and Muslim.]

Insh’Allah refer to this Powerpoint page for the reminders of the rulings of fasting:

If you don’t see your name on my blogroll…

11 03 2008

Assalaamu Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu all my muslim brothers and sisters in blog world!

 If you don’t see your name on my blog roll anymore, don’t think I took it off because I don’t enjoy your blog or am upset with you. That’s not it at all! I’m doing some renovations and insh’Allah will make a seperate blogroll for sister’s blogs instead of having sites and blogs all on one thing. So, insh’Allah, you will be added back in a more organized manner.
