Ramadan 2017 Day #15

Assalamu Alaykum,

This Ramadan I would like to share a brief post with you every day asking you to do three things in the day as part of our 30 Day Ramadan challenge.

  1. The first will be a ‘Deed of the Day’ highlighting a different deed that you can do each day.
  2. The second will highlight a specific Prophetic Food that you can eat to incorporate a Sunnah Food item in your diet.
  3. The final will be a charity spotlight recommending a specific charity for you to donate a small sum to in order to support their work.

Let us begin below the actions for Day #15 bi’iznillah.

Deed of the Day: Send prayers upon the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)

‘Indeed God and His angels bless the Prophet. O you who believe, invoke blessings on him and invoke peace upon him in a worthy manner.’ [Qur’an 33:56]

Prophetic Food of the Day: Banana

‘Amid thornless lote‐trees, and banana‐trees (with fruits), one above another. And extended shade, and water flowing constantly, and abundant fruit, neither intercepted nor forbidden.’ [Surat al‐Waqi’a: 28‐33]

Charity Spotlight: Cambridge Muslim College

The mission of the College is to develop Muslim faith leadership through world-class education, training and research based on a dialogue between the Islamic intellectual tradition and the ideas and circumstances of the modern world.

This is a response to the urgent need for leaders and thinkers capable of articulating and enacting the positive role Muslims and Islam can and should play as part of modern, multi-cultural British society and the world as a whole.

The strategic aims of the College in the furtherance of its mission are:

  1. Developing accredited courses which meet the education and training needs of those working or intending to work in Muslim faith leadership in the context of modern British society;
  2. Developing accredited courses which combine substantial subject knowledge and understanding of the Islamic intellectual tradition with the comparative, critical and historically-contextualised paradigms of the modern academy;
  3. Supporting research that will inform the development of these courses specifically and contribute to the development of Islamic Studies, Religious Studies and Theology as academic disciplines generally;
  4. Supporting the dissemination of the College’s work through other channels for the benefit of the wider community and to encourage greater public engagement with the College’s mission and objectives.

The College is independent of governments and is not affiliated to any Islamic movement. CMC provides a prayerful context for strengthening da’wa skills and scholarly resources to support all who care about the continuing health and dynamism of the Muslim community.

CMC is accredited by the British Accreditation Council for Independent Further and Higher Education.
