Alhamdulillah the month of Ramadan is approaching and
if Allah (swt) gives us the ability we will fast. Unfortunately for
many it has become the 'month of sleeping' and instead of reforming
oneself it has turned into a cultural practice or 'a thing we must
do', hence devoid of all the benefits a person could gain. The
root cause of this is ignorance. Year after year the same questions
pop up. How can we 'really' make use of Ramadan in a practical way.
The answer lies in preparing for it! This specially designed course
will help you explain the following:

* Fasting - proofs, obligations, breaking fast
* Permissible and non-permissible actions
* Taraaweeh
* Issues surrounding Moon Sighting
* Eid ul-Fitr and Zakat ul-Fitr
* Differences in opinion
* Other types of fasting
* Women and fasting
* Making up fasts
*The inner dimension of fasting

... and many other issues that are closely related to Ramadan.

*Notes will be provided.
*Light refreshments provided

---- Wassalaam 'alaikum wa rahmatullaah.

The blessed Prophet (peace be upon him) mentioned
that 'The believer who recites the Qur'an and applies
it is like the utrujja (fruit), whose smell is fragrant
and taste is sweet .' (Bukhari)

Utrujj is based upon the teachings of the above Hadith in
seeking to equip you with the sacred knowledge of Islam,
while simultaneously training you in it's implementation in
your daily lives. As a result of this dynamic approach your
personality should insh'Allah come to personify this
sacred knowledge.

The change this creates will be witnessed by those around you
as they smell the sweet fragrance of your good speech and taste
the sweetness of your exemplary actions. Such a change within
individuals is critical in realising our covenant with Allah and for the
spreading of Islam, especially here in the West.
