HIJAB

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

I wanted to share the following link (below) with all of you because I feel there is a beneficial message. Especially in light of the recent disgrace in Toronto. We have got to raise our level in this deen and realize that there are bigger issues than hijab (not that it is not also important) and that we will ALL be called to account on the last day for our own actions. “Do not judge, lest you be judged.” It becomes easy for all of us to loose sight of our own short-comings when we concentrate on the short-comings of others.
May Allah, ta’ala, give us each tawfiq in this life and the next, may He make us to be a mercy in this ummah, may He, ta’ala, help us to remind ourselves, “oh eye others have eyes too” and help us to be so consumed with our own faults that we do not see the faults of others around us, and finally may Allah forgive all of our sins, strengthen this ummah and put mercy and love between the hearts of the Believers, amin ya Rabbil Al-Amin.

Below I have given the links for a few homeschool links that I find to be very helpful. The Rainbow Resource Center has a catalog that you can order which gives a listing and review of almost every book available to homeschoolers. I must warn you, though, this catalog is huge and so packed with information that unless you know exactly what you are looking for, you could end up loosing a couple of hours of your day every time you open it. This is a must have for any homeschooler – no matter what style you use or which curriculum you follow!

The next link is beneficial for anyone teaching a classical curriculum. If you have not read ‘The Well-Trained Mind,” you must! This book is great!

The third link is that of Kinza Academy. This is also a great sight if you are interested in a classical curriculum. They offer a complete curriculum with support for the parent. They are highly professional and have some incredible minds on their board. Check this one out!

The last link that I have listed is one I just recently came across. For all of you Muslim homeschoolers, there are some beautiful books with Islamic themes on this site.

In the name of Allah do I begin.
The Most Merciful, The Most Kind.

For it was Allah, who delivered the Best of Creation,
To the whole of Mankind.

How great is His favour, for us to see.
For Truth has arrived, and falsehood will flee.

May every blessing be upon thee, O sweet and beautiful Madani.

No sweeter man has there ever been.
None more honest and serene.;

As Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmantullahi wa Barakatuhu

If someone came to you and said that they needed just $10.00 in order to save their life or the life of their child, would you not reach into your pocket without hesitation?

I challenge everyone who reads this blog to please contribute to this life-saving program, buy just one net and change the life of someone less fortunate than yourself. Then forward this information to others and make a difference.

May Allah, ta’ala, reward your efforts and may He increase your sustenance and make your good deeds heavy on the Day of Judgement, Amin ya Rabbil Al Amin.  

  

Buzzkill Facts

Each year, malaria afflicts approximately a half-billion people (roughly the population of the United States, Canada, and Mexico combined).

  • Malaria kills more than a million people per year; 90 percent of those who die are African children.
  • Every 30 seconds an Africa a child dies of malaria.
  • Malaria incapacitates people, keeping countries poor. In addition to the health burden, malaria illness and death cost Africa about $12 billion per year.

Nothing But Nets is a grassroots campaign to save lives by preventing malaria, a leading killer of children in Africa. While the UN Foundation has been working with the UN to fight malaria for years, it was a column that Rick Reilly wrote about malaria in Sports Illustrated, challenging each of his readers to donate at least $10 for the purchase of an anti-malaria bed nets — and the incredible response from thousands of Americans across the country — that led to the creation the Nothing But Nets campaign.

This entire process of purchasing and distributing insecticide-treated bed nets to children under the age of five, as well as providing education and follow-up surveying on their use, is accomplished at the cost of just $10 per bed net.
Although $10 for a bed net may not sound like much, the cost makes them out of reach for most people at risk of malaria in Africa, where many people survive on less than $1 a day. Malaria has been brought under control and even eliminated in many parts of Asia, Europe and the Americas. Yet in Africa, malaria infections have actually increased over the last three decades. Malaria is a leading cause of death of children in Africa, killing nearly one million children each year. Every day 3,000 children die from the disease.

Meeting With Allah

As Salaamu Alaiykum wa Rahmantullahi wa Barakatuhu

Ya Ibadallah! I saw this video on another group and could not resist posting it – it is so powerful and moving. May it serve as a reminder to us all of the Greatest of Allah, Subhana wa Ta ‘ala, and the immensity of our meeting Him, Ta’ala.   May we all be of the people of Jennah, may we all be Blessed by the sight of Allah’s Face and may we all be wrapped in His Mercy for all of eternity.
