Be Humble…

‘Iyad ibn Himar reported: The Messenger of Allah (SWS), said, “Verily, Allah has revealed to me that you must be humble towards one another, so that no one oppresses another or boasts to another.”

Remembering al-’Isra’ wal-Mi’raj

Tomorrow marks the date when the Prophet Muhammad (SWS) undertook the journey of Isra and Mi’raj (al-’Isra’ wal-Mi’raj).

In the year 621 AD, the Holy Prophet embarked on this miraculous journey, travelling beyond the heavens with the angel Jibreel in one night on the steed Buraq.

He (SWS) travelled from the Ka’bah in Makkah to the Masjid Al-Aqsa in Jerusalem, where he led other Prophets in prayer. He then ascended to heaven where he spoke to Almighty Allah (SWT), who gave him prayer instructions to take back to the Muslims.

This journey is one of the most significant events in the Islamic calendar.

We ask Allah (SWT) for His lofty forgiveness, and His immediate assistance in healing our Ummah and uniting us insha’Allah.

“Haya `ala al-falah”

Come to the masjid, let your soul relax, say Allahu Akbar, and leave the world behind you! Come to hidayah, and beg Allah (SWT) for His lofty forgiveness.

Make haste to true success (Haya `ala al-falah)!
