Dear respected brothers and sisters, Assalaamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu My sincere greetings to Muslims around the world during this auspicious month of Ramadhan. The month of Ramadhan offers us a unique opportunity to earn Allah’s pleasure. It is a month in which mercy descends upon us, our sins are effaced, and our dua’s are responded to. We should capture every moment of this month and be grateful to Allah that we have been given yet another chance to enjoy the blessed month of Ramadhan.

Fasting is an experience with the entire Muslim Ummah. It gives us a sense of togetherness and creates the strongest of bonds. With the same merit let us not forget the millions of needy Muslims around world who are in state of distress far worse than any of us can imagine. Fasting helps us understand the suffering and pains of the needy and we also learn how to be more kind and generous. Ramadhan is also the month that the Ummah increases in their charitable acts and the rewards for this generosity are multiplied. The Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi assallam) said, "The best charity is that given in Ramadhan." Alhamdulillah, last Ramadhan over 10 million pounds was raised through Islam Channel charity live appeals through the continuous support of the Islam Channel viewers.

This is the best of months as the Prophet Muhammad (sallahu alayhi wa salam) said in his sermon on the eve of Ramadhan “…Allah has decreed this month the best of all months. The days of this month are the best among the days, and the nights the best among the nights, and the hours “There have been a number of events over recent the best among the hours.” We times which should remind us of the importance of should do our utmost to observe being united as an Ummah. “ the rites which reflect our obedience to Allah and bearing in mind that we do so only for the sake of Allah. We also have some new developments to our Ramadhan programming for this year and hope our viewers will enjoy exclusive Ramadhan progammes on Islam Channel. As always, the team have incorporated suggestions from our valued viewers to ensure that we have a viewer-led packed programme for this year. I wish you all Ramadhan Kareem. Praise be to Allah, we thank Him, seek His help and forgiveness. Ameen.

Ramadhan

fundamentals

Essentials to ensure we spend a fully rewarding Ramadhan Suhoor - Suhoor is distinctive of the Ummah, it is timed between the

middle of the night and dawn. There are blessings in Suhoor ...”Eat Suhoor, for there are blessings in it.” (al-Bukhari and Muslim). Eating Suhoor would be fulfilled by eating a small or large quantity of food, or even just by drinking a sip of water as mentioned in the Hadith of Abu Said al-Khudri. However, the best of Suhoor is eating dates since the Prophet (pbuh) said: “How excellent are dates as the believer’s Suhoor.” (Abu Dawood, Ibn Hibban and al-Baihaqee; Sahih).

6


Qur’an - The Qur’an was revealed to the Prophet (pbuh) as a source of guidance for mankind during the month of Ramadhan. In this month, try and rekindle your relationship and understanding with the Qur’an. Take time to recite whilst reading the meaning also, so that you may connect with the words of Allah (swt).

Taraweeh - Performing Taraweeh in congregation during the month of Ramadhan is part of the Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh). To complete recitation of the Qur’an takes place over the period of Ramadhan and additionally there is a lot of reward for praying in Jama’ah.

Last 10 Days - Not only are the last 10 days a sad reminder for us about how quickly this holy month has passed, it is also regarded as the days of salvation from the Hellfire. Spend increasing amount of time supplicating and asking for the ultimate protection. Within the last days there is also the Night of Power, it was also on this night in which the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) received the start of the revelation from Allah. It is recommended to make long qiyam (recitation) prayer during any of the odd nights in the last 10 days.

Night of Power - the Powerful Night of Ramadhan, otherwise known as Laylat al-Qadr. On this night (usually the last ten days of Ramadan), Muslim men and women gather to engage in prayer and Qur’an recitation, asking for forgiveness and seeking reward: “Whoever stands in night prayer on Laylat al-Qadr out of solely his true faith (Iman) and seeks the divine reward, then his previous sins are forgiven.” (Al-Bukhari).

Charity - Due to the multiplying of good deeds during Ramadhan, it is recommended that one chooses to offer Zakaat or charitiable donations. It is often said that charity is deeply beneficial for one’s spirituality for it can bring many blessings such as barakah to one’s wealth, family or prevention of calamities. More information on zakaat can be found on page 44.

Welcoming Ramadhan As the blessed month of Ramadhan arrives, we can appreciate that we are of those fortunate enough to be in the midst of this bountiful month: a month of effort, reward, repentance and revival. In preparation for this holy month the companions of the Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa salam) used to pray to Allah six months prior to its start, they would do so to extend their lives so that they would be able to fast during Ramadhan. This is the level of bounty in this month, a level unprecedented and difficult for the human mind to grasp. The sahabah would continue to ask Allah to accept their fast six months after in fear that their efforts would not be accepted. This is the level to which we aspire.

As vast or petty the distance may seem this is the month to draw closer and what a great method through which to do this than to fast. Our intentions this Ramadhan are of the upmost importance. They should be for the sake of Allah and to seek His pleasure. Approaching this month with the proper intentions will mean we can Insha’Allah reap its benefits. Many of us will make the intention before fasting but we should also make the correct intention for the everyday tasks that that we carry out during this month and in that way these everyday tasks will transform into acts of worship which we will be rewarded for in multitude. Make sincere intention and commit to ensure that you take full advantage of these benefits.

According to the “Oh you who have believed, decreed upon you is Companion `Ubadah ibn fasting as it was decreed upon those before you al-Samit, the tradition of that you may become righteous [Muttaqun].” (2:183) the Prophet Muhammed (sallahu alayhi wa salam) was to say upon entering this month: We pray that this month allows us to set Allahumma sallimnee li ramadhana the foundation for the coming months and wasallim ramadhana wa sallimhu minnee that we are able to use it for its wonderous mutaqabbilan. (Oh Allah, greet and save benefits. The message to remember for us me for Ramadhan; greet and save all is that as the month leaves us to not let Ramadhan; greet and save Ramadhan on our discipline go with it. my behalf, and grant me its acceptance). The fact that we are amongst the ones who have been given life to witness this Ramadhan is a sign that Allah has left His doors of Mercy open to us to turn back to Him. A month in which we can return to Allah, regardless of the distance we may have created throughout the year. The month of opportunity is embodied in the ayah in surah al-Baqarah, ‘Oh you who have believe, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous [muttaqun].’ (2:183).

THE

Prophet FAREWELL SERMON

T

he Prophet Muhammad (sallahu alayhi wasalam) used to meet the angel Jibreel every Ramadhan and read verses of the Qur’an which had been revealed. On the 10th AH Jibreel said they would read the Qur’an twice, which the Prophet (sallahu alayhi wasalam) understood to mean that his life was coming to an end. During the same year he prepared for Hajj and on 4th of Dhul Hijjah he made his well known speech which came to be known as the Farwell Sermon. Below are some extracts from this:

Verily you will soon meet your Lord and you will be held answerable for your actions. O’ people! Verily you have got certain rights over your women and your women have certain rights over you. It is your right upon them to honour their conjugal rights, and not to commit acts of impropriety, which if they do, you are authorised by Allah to separate them from your beds and chastise them, but not severely, and if they refrain, then clothe and feed them properly. Behold! It is not permissible for a woman to

Let him that is present, convey it unto him who is absent, for many people to whom the message is conveyed may be more mindful of it than the audience. And if you were asked about me, what would you say?” They answered, “We bear witness that you have conveyed the trust (of religion) and discharged your ministry of Prophethood and looked to our welfare.” Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) lifted his forefinger towards the sky and then pointing towards people said: “O’ Lord: Bear Thou witness unto it.

Tips for a Healthy Ramadhan During the long summer days of Ramadhan, it is imperative that we nourish and replenish our bodies with the right food groups to give us a varied and balanced diet, and to avoid problems like headaches, low blood sugar and lethargy.

What to do...

DO start suhoor with a light meal: Eat whole wheat, oat cereal or whole wheat bread. This group is a good source of complex carbohydrates, which are a good source of energy and provide some protein, minerals, and dietary fibre.

DO break your fast with three dates: According to Prophetic Sunnah this is the best way to break your fast. Dates are an excellent source of fibre, sugar, magnesium, potassium, and have carbohydrates which will aid the body in maintaining health. The carbohydrates found in dates also make the fruit a slower digesting food.

DO replenish your body with plenty of water and juices: During the summer months, it is important to get your 1.2 litres of fluid every day as recommended by the Department of Health. This can avoid symptoms like headaches, loss of energy and nausea.

12


What to avoid... AVOID eating your entire day’s food intake at suhoor! The body has regulatory mechanisms in place that activate during fasting. Eat foods that take longer to digest to ensure you have enough energy during your day.

AVOID sugary drinks: Many soft drinks are high in sugar and calories and can make you more likely to gain weight. It is recommended to check nutritional labels, and if water is too plain for the taste buds, we suggest flavouring your water with lemon, lime or oranges!

AVOID direct exposure to sunlight: wearing a hat when out, using sunglasses to reduce the effect of glare from the sun can all help to reduce the likelihood of headaches and dehydration.

AVOID intensive sporting activity: In moderation is fine but try to avoid heat especially between 4pm and 5:30pm time for which the body needs fuel.

AVOID oily and over-spicy food: This is a common mistake for many of us. This type of food is high in cholesterol and leaves us hungry and wanting more. The control of heartburn or belching can be aided by avoiding these foods. Reducing your caffeine intake and stopping smoking can also be of benefit. Feed your body with the right nutrients to maintain a healthy balances diet.

DU’AAS FOR RAMADHAN Below are some key Du’aas to be recited during Ramadhan to ensure we gain as much reward and benefits from this special month as possible. We should make du’aa in abundance and seek Allah’s support and forgiveness in all matters. Remember one of the most blessed times during this month to make dua is just before we break our fast (iftaar)!

Du’aa for keeping the fast Wa bisawmi ghadin nawaytu min shahri ramadhan. Meaning: “I intend to keep the fast tomorrow in the month of Ramadhan.” Du’aa for breaking the fast Allahumma laka sumtu wa bika aamantu wa ‘alayka tawakkaltu wa ‘alaa rizqika aftartu. Meaning: “O Allah! I fasted for You and I believe in You and I put my trust in You and I break my fast with Your sustenance.”

Upon breaking the fast in someone’s home Aftara ‘indakumus saa’imuna, wa akala ta’aamakumul-abraaru, wasallat ‘alaikumul mala’ikat. Meaning: “May those who are fasting break their fast in your home, and may the dutiful and pious eat your food and may the angels send prayers upon you.”

Meaning: “O Allah! You are the Forgiver and You like forgiving so forgive me.” Recommended Du’aa by the Prophet (PBUH) Allahumma innaka ‘awfuwwun kareemun tuhibbul ‘awfa fa’fu ‘annee. Meaning: “O Allah, You are the best forgiver, beneficent and merciful. You love forgiveness so forgive me.” (at-Timidhi) When you are fasting, and someone is rude to you Inni sa’iimu, inni sa’iimu Meaning: “I am fasting, I am fasting [Sahih al-Bukhari, Fath al-Bari of Al-Asqalani;” 4:1-3, Muslim; 2:806]

Recited at intervals of taraweeh prayers Subhana dhil Mulki wal Malakuti, subhana dhil izzati wal adhmati wal haybati wal Qudrati, wal kibriyaa’I wal jabaroot Subhanal Malikil hayyil ladhi, la yunaamu wa la yamutu, subbuhun, Quddusun, Rabbul malaa’ikati war-rooh la ilaha illal lahu, nustugfirullahi nas ‘alukul jannati, wa na udhubika min an-naar. Meaning: “Glorified is the Owner of the kingdom of the earth and the heavens; glorified is the Possessor of honour and magnificence and awe, and power and greatness and omnipotence glorified is the Sovereign, the Living who does neither sleep nor die. O all Glorious, All Holy one, our Lord and the Lord of the Angles, and the soul. There is no God but You, forgive us, grant us paradise, and save us from (hell) fire.” We should also remember to make du’aa for the Ummah and for those who are suffering in various countries. The Prophet (sallahu alayki wa salam) said: ‘Whenever you make a supplication for another believer and he is not present, an angel will say ‘and same to you.’ (Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi)

Making the most of Ramadhan Imagine this Ramadhan is to be your last; wouldn’t you want to make the most of it? Here are 10 ways that can help you work towards a successful Ramadhan and ultimately increase your Emaan.

01

Increase the time you spend with your Qur’an, read the beautiful book of guidance at least once a day. Why not upload the Qur’an onto your phone, IPod or MP3 player with a recitation by a Qari whom you find inspirational?

03

02

In addition to your annual Zakaat perhaps you could sponsor a child or find a project such as funding schools in developing countries where you can have regular engagement. Such charity gives you an emotional connection to the recipient and will help you in being content with the blessings that God has provided you.

04

Appreciate and be more thankful of the blessings you receive, and so incorporate ‘Alhamdulillah’ into your life. Thanking and praising Him for the small bounties in your life leads to gratitude and contentment. The Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa salam) said “Alhamdulillah is the statement of appreciation and that when the servant says Alhamdulillah, God says, ‘My servant has praised Me.’’’ (Ibn Abi Hatim)

Ramadhan has the potential to reset your spiritual compass and give your life renewed direction, to work towards this how about creating a list of the ways you wish to improve your life spiritually and in other ways. Making these Intentions function like targets and goals for you to meet and work towards.


06

05 Invite others to dine with you for a simple iftar and accept the invitations of others for that is one of the five rights a Muslim has over another Muslim (Bukhari & Muslim).

Be the one to forgive and move on as it is the month of mercy, if we expect mercy from our creator we must forgive one another likewise. Put those you love first and empathise with their emotions, as the Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa salam) said, “Love for your brother what you love for yourself.” (Muslim)

09 07 Find a quiet and peaceful time everyday to reflect on your day, what did you learn? What was the positive and negative parts of the day? And how you could of done it better? Even on bad days we should remember every new dawn brings new opportunities.

08 Control your anger at all times, those who control their anger are described by the Qur’an thus, “Those who spend (in God’s cause) in prosperity and in adversity, who repress their anger, and who pardon men, verily, God loves those that do good.” (3:133-134).

Patience is most important especially nowadays when we try to do too many things at once. Take things slow and learn to focus and prioritise your work. If times become tough try using support of friends or family.

10 Lastly, it is easy to fall into the trap of keeping yourself busy when you are fasting so that you do not feel hunger or thirst. However, one can only really gain the full significance of the month by developing focus on the hunger and thirst and examining what it is trying to teach us. Try to get rid of any distractions, identify what is a negative drain on your focus and remove it. Abu Huraira related that the Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa salam) said: Many people who fast get nothing from their fast except hunger and thirst, and many people who pray at night get nothing from it except wakefulness (Darimi).

Introducing your Children to Fasting It is not compulsory for children to fast during Ramadhan until they reach the age of maturity. However, in many families, younger children enjoy participating in our holy month of Ramadhan. It is common for children to take part in Ramadhan in other ways, aside from the daily fast. They may collect money to donate to the needy, help cook meals for iftar or read the Qur’an with the family in the evening. At the end of Ramadhan, children are often indulged with gifts of sweets and money on the day of Eid al-Fitr.

CHARITY TESTIMONIALS

Orphans In Need As the forerunner in Muslim television media in the UK, Islam Channel was the natural choice for advancing Orphans in Need’s cause to the wider Muslim community on a global scale. We are very pleased to have worked with Islam Channel, whose professional service has had a significant effect upon the growth of Orphans in Need over the last few years. We have sponsored over 3,000 orphans across a range of countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East and construction of the Orphan Village Project in New Delhi is underway. Our Widow and Orphans Food distribution programme has enabled us to provide staple food items and sanitary products for thousands of widows and their families. Our success has been aided greatly by Islam Channel’s effective promotion and support of Orphans in Need.

We are pleased and honoured to mention the UK Islamic Mission’s affiliation with Islam Channel through last several years for common goal of serving the humanity and our 50 years long journey of dawah, education, relief and welfare. UKIM is also glad to indicate the distinguishable support given by Islam Channel viewers in particular to their participation in UKIM projects including building orphanages, Hifz Quran projects, school establishments etc. through which thousands of vulnerable, needy and innocent children were benefitted and had access to basic necessities including drinking water, food, clothing, shelter, education across the world and ultimately new hope to live and face the challenges of life. We continue to look forward this support by you this Ramadan as well in order to execute more and more Help to the suffering and needy community throughout the world inshaAllah.

Islamic Relief Islamic Relief would like to thank Islam Channel viewers for raising over half a million pounds towards sustainable solutions last Ramadan 2012. The donations were vital in supporting our work around the globe, aiming to lift people out of poverty for good. They helped us rebuild villages devastated by floods in Pakistan, construct water systems in rural China and provide healthcare and drug rehabilitation in Afghanistan. In short, they helped us relieve the suffering of hundreds of thousands of the world’s poorest people. Islamic Relief is dedicated to tackling the root causes of poverty, and we couldn’t do it without the support of generous Islam Channel viewers. In this blessed month of Ramadan, we ask that you help us build solutions to feed some of the one billion people in this world who go hungry every day – donate, pray and join Islamic Relief as we campaign against this global injustice. Join the war on hunger today.

Islamic Help This year is the 10th anniversary of Islamic Help. We mark our anniversary with humility and thanks to Allah for the work He has allowed us to carry out. That work has only been possible because of our supporters, including the viewers of Islam Channel who have responded so generously to our appeals. In the last year, your donations to Islamic Help have helped bring relief to the people of Syria through food supplies and medical aid. In Gaza we provided medical treatment, food parcels, water supplies and emergency winter packs to families whose homes were destroyed. We also provided emergency relief in Pakistan to families whose homes were destroyed by floods, and to families in Yemen which remains in the grip of a humanitarian crisis. Our Orphan Sponsorship Scheme supports more than 3,000 orphans, we fund free education for thousands of children, distribute food packs and water to those in need, surgery and support for survivors of acid attacks.

Our most daring project to date ‘The Big READ Hat-Trick 2013, saw over 4,500 poor and orphan children from READ Foundation schools break THREE world records.

Zakaat al-Fitr Zakaat al-Fitr is the name given to charity which is distributed at the end of the fast of Ramadhan. It has two main purposes: provide the fasting person the means of making up for their errors during the month of fasting and to allow poor and needy groups of society to feast and rejoice for the sake of Allah (SWT). The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, “The fasting of the month of fasting will be hanging between earth and heavens and it will not be raised up to the Divine Presence without paying the Zakaat al-Fitr.”

Who is entitled to Zakaat al-Fitr?

When do I pay my Zakaat al-Fitr?

5. Freeing captives / slaves (Fee al-Riqab)

Zakaat al-Fitr is obligatory for Muslims, and once missed, cannot be made up. In order for it to be accepted as Zakaat, it must be given before Eid prayers: “Whoever pays it before the time of prayer, it is an accepted Zakaat, and whoever pays it after the prayer, it is just a kind of charity (sadaqah).” (Abu Dawood, 1371)

How much do I donate? The amount of Zakaat is the same for everyone regardless of age and income. The minimum amount is one Sa’ (two handfuls) of food, grain or dried fruit for each member of the family, although it is more common nowadays to send equivalent money abroad. Many masjids and charities recommend donating £4-£5 for each member of the household including children, and this is given by the head of the house before the day of Eid. It is important to note that Zakaat al-Fitr is different to the Zakaat on income (Zakaat al-Maal) which equates to 2.5% of your assets. To calculate your Zakaat al-Mal please go to the Islam channel website:

www.Islamchannel.tv/zakatcalculator

44

Zakaat al-Fitr has to be handed over to someone who is entitled to it or someone who has been appointed and trust worthy to collect it. The groups who are entitled to receive this form of charity are: 1. The poor 2. The needy 3. Collectors of Zakaat 4. Reconciliation of hearts 6. Debtors 7. In the way of Allah / Islamic causes (Fee Sabeel illah) 8. The traveller


This isn’t just a box This is hope.

By providing for a widow and her family, you ensure they don’t have to beg for food, resort to crime or be lured into prostitution. Each box typically contains: rice, flour, oil, lentils, pulses, spices, tea, sugar, vegetables, soap and sanitation products.

This Ramadan, don’t just give handouts, change lives for just £30.

Act Now. Donate. Call 020 7100 8866 or visit orphansinneed.org Charity Reg: (No. 1144812)


“Thank you so much for taking the time to teach us about the Islam Channel. I knew little about the topic before your presentation. Now I have a better picture of Muslims as a whole. I think what you’re doing is great! Thanks again! The food was AMAZING!”

“Thank you so much for your hospitality, wealth of knowledge and all in all a great presentation. I have learned so much from this and will take it home with me and share with family and friends.

“This has been AMAZING! I appreciate everything you’ve taught us! A teacher of mine once told me that the way to destroy stereotypes is to prove it wrong and you all have done that through education.

Thanks again!”

Thank you so much!”
