Why Attend this ISLAMinar?

 During Ramadaan, Allah amplifies the reward of good deeds in and accepts repentance. As good deeds are amplified and dua is accepted, the most plausible course of action is to spend days and nights in remembrance of Allah. The one who does not take advantage of the added reward during Ramadaan has surely lost a great opportunity.

 

Unfortunately, in these modern times, many people lose their intent for fasting, which is the pleasure of Allah and Allah only, thus making the fasting ritualistic. Such people do not try to attain the added benefits of fasting, and do not pray more than they usually do throughout the rest of the year, and are even more inactive in the excuse of preserving their strength. This contradicts with the purpose of Ramadaan, which is to be more Islamic, and perfect one’s character, so as to improve one’s self for the coming year. To better improve the quality of Ramadaan, there is none better to look to than the Sahaba (may Allah be pleased with them). They are the result of the prophets’ (peace be upon them) teachings, and the idealistic and most practical role models for us.

To show us how the Sahabaa used to spend their Ramadaan, renowned scholar, Sheikh Abdullah Hakim Quick will give an enlightening webinar on July 28th. Sheikh Abdullah is head historian of Almaghrib institute, and specializes in stories of the Sahabaa.

Why Attend this ISLAMinar?

During the month of Ramadaan, the Shayateen (Devils) are chained, and it is the best time of the year when Allah, the Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful, showers us with His Forgiveness and Generosity.

So what better opportunity than Ramadaan for seeking the Forgiveness of Allah?

 

Ramadaan is meant to be a time of cleansing and repentance, and we should do exactly that. Elaborate discussion of this issue will be carried out by Sheikh Abdulla Idris, Secretary General of Islamic Society of North America (Canada) and a former Principal of ISNA Elementary School in Ontario, Canada.. He will speak about the best times to repent, and the etiquettes of repentance.

Why Attend this ISLAMinar?

The blessed month of Ramadan has come for the benefit of the Muslim Ummah. In this holy month, the Quran was revealed as the ultimate guidance for humanity. It is the book Allah ordained for us as a criterion between right and wrong, to set standards of what Allah expects from us, and all in all, a way to connect with Him. 

In this month we are highly recommended to extensively recite, memorize, and reflect upon the Quran to take maximum reward from Allah. 


The concept of benefiting from the Quran in the month of the Quran will be elaborated by Sheikh Alaa Elsayed,a renowned scholar of international repute working as the Director of Public Relations for Mercy Mission, Director of Religious Affairs ISNA-Canada, and Tutor at Alkauthar Institute.

Why Attend this ISLAMinar?

How are we going to make this Ramadan the best ever?

 
We all begin Ramadan with high hopes of increasing our worship and performing extra voluntary good deeds and prayers, however after the first week of of fasting our energy and enthusiasm isn't the same!
 
Every year we ask ourselves:
  • How do we achieve ultimate productivity and the drive to be steadfast and constant with our extra deeds for 30 days?
  • How do we keep ourselves from “burning out”?
  • What goals should we set during this month?
  • How do we plan and discipline ourselves and our families to meet our Ramadan goals?
 
Join Dr. Munir El Kassem on Sunday, July 7th from 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM EST to learn how to achieve the ultimate productivity and how to stay constant with our voluntary good deeds this Ramadan.
