The Beauty of Marriage In Islam

By on Jan 13, 2015 in Articles of Faith, Blog, Events | 0 comments

Marriage is a vital part of a Muslim’s life. In fact marriage is so important in the religion of Islam that it is declared to be one half of one’s faith. As a Muslim one should live in accordance with the Islamic Jurisprudence in the way shown by the greatest of creations and the person who has the greatest impact on mankind in the existence of the universe, The Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) himself married and also encouraged others to marry. It has been reported that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, ‘A person who possesses the means to marry (i.e. he is able to work etc. to support a wife and children) and does not marry then he is not from amongst us (i.e. the believers).’ In another narration the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has been reported to have said, ‘Do not delay in three things; 1) The offering of the obligatory prayer. 2) The offering of the funeral prayer when the deceased’s body is present . 3) The marriage of a woman when her couple is found’ One can see from this statement that to become a complete and true believer one must act upon the advice given by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This means marrying when the partner is found and not delaying it for too long. For this reason, we at Seven Kings Masjid have organised a program regarding the “Beauty of Marriage in Islam” to keep the awareness of its importance between the Muslim ummah, especially the youth. The talk will be delivered in English by the world renowned scholar, Mufti Muhammad ibn Adam Al...

In Sha Allah they are organising a collection of food and toiletry items that will be donated to the borough’s most needy. We request everyone to bring at least one item from the list below.

Tajweed Course – Back 2 Basics – 22/11/2014

By on Nov 12, 2014 in Adult Courses, Blog, Events, Uncategorized | 14 comments

Starting on Saturday 22nd November 2014 A 16 week course covering theMakhaarij (Pronounciation) of the Arabic letters and basic rules of Tajweed, with emphasis on the correct recitation of the last 10 Surahs which are essential for Salah.   Tutor: Mufti Abdul Kaium. Limited spaces. The cost of this 16 week course will be £40.00. For further information or to enroll please contact Mufti Abdul Kaium on:  mufti.kaium@skmet.co.uk   07956 776 089   Introduction Listening to the Qur’an being recited correctly is enough to soften even the hardest of hearts and Muslims and non-Muslims alike find it a deeply moving experience even if they do not understand what is being said. We feel this even more in Ramadan when we are in the Taraweeh prayers and we can really feel the difference if we go to a Masjid where the Tajweed rules of Qur’an recitation are not being observed as they should. Every single Muslim has to recite Qur’an in Salah but many of us do not realise that reciting the Qur’an correctly, observing the rules of recitation is not an advanced science for expert reciters alone, rather it is an obligation upon each and every one of us whenever we recite the Qur’an. What is Tajweed The word Tajweed linguistically means ‘proficiency’ or ‘doing something well’. It comes from the same root letters as the word ‘Jayyid’ in Arabic (meaning ‘good’): Jeem, Waw and Daal. When applied to the Qur’an, it means giving every letter of the Qur’an its rights and dues of characteristics when we recite the Qur’an and observing the rules that apply to those letters in different situations. We give the letters their rights by observing the essential characteristics of each letter that never leave it. And we give them their dues by observing the characteristics of each letter that are present in them some of the time and not present at other times. The Qur’an was revealed with Tajweed rules applied to it. In other words, when the angel Jibreel (alaihis salaam) recited the words of Allah to the Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) he recited them in a certain way and he showed the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) the ways in which...
