Wed Circle Supporting Fund Raiser for Libya | 20 June 2012 @ 7:30pm

Asslamu ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

You may recall last year you helped the Wednesday Circle raise over £130 for comic relief by donating for the children to write a story for Comic Relief.

The book was written and is currently published on the Kindle website.

This year we are helping sisters Jasmine and Nargis to raise money for Human Aid to help provide essential medical supplies in Libya which has suffered greatly from the recent civil war.

We are going to be holding a cakes and sweets sale, courtesy of Jasmine and Nargis, at next weeks Wednesday Circle on Wed 20 June 2012 at 7:30pm to raise money for Libya. We would be grateful if you could come along and support us. The circle is a boys circle held at St Hildas Community Centre, Club Row, London E2 7EY.

Fairy cakes will be sold at 30p a piece and sweet packets will be sold at 60p a piece or two for £1(you are welcome to donate more)  – see pics attached. All money raised will be donated to the above medical fund. Advance orders for cakes and sweets welcome (please email me).

If you are not able to attend in person you can donate online via the following link (please mention the Wed Circle for reference in the comments section). Any amount will be highly appreciated:

Other ways you can help is by telling any friends and family that live in the area to pop down on Wednesday and support this cause.

May Allah bless and reward you for your time.

Was Salam

Prophet Jesus (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) The Qur’anic Account

Excerpts from the Qur’an based on the Stories of the Prophets by Imam Ibn Kathir. Translation of the Qur’an based on Marmaduke Pickthall’s translation.



I am reposting this from a post that I published back in 2007 as I believe that the Qur’anic account of the life of Jesus (peace be upon him) needs to be told and re-told to clarify some of the mysteries surrounding Jesus (peace be upon him) and to reclaim him as a Prophet of the Muslims.

Jesus is one of the revered Messengers of Go. Allah has mentioned the story of Mary and Jesus in many parts of the holy Qur’an. Below are some excerpts taken from the Qur’an to illustrate the Qur’anic narrative on the story of Jesus.

As this is the season of remembering Jesus I hope the following will be useful for both Christians and Muslims to reflect upon the story of this great Prophet of God.

Please refer to the ‘Stories of the Prophets’ by Ibn Kathir for a full account of the Muslim version of the tale.

You may also be interested in the notes from a talk a did a while back titled The Return of the Sun – The Truth About Jesus (PBUH)

Also of interest will be this documentary titled The Muslim Jesus  that was aired on ITV in 2007 and features our very own Shaykh Ahmad Sa’ad

Keep us in your Duas

Assalamu ‘Alaikum,

The following are my notes from the English translation of the book ‘Sirat-I-Nu’man’ by Allama Sibli Nu’mani.

The notes are purely mine and my own understanding of his book. Any mistakes in the notes are also mine and not the author of the book.

I hope these notes will serve as a brief bullet point outline of Imam Abu Hanifa’s life and works based on the above book.

Please keep us in your Duas.
