Assalamu Alaikum.

Been waiting for Ramadan Prep lectures (live ones I mean)? Well, so have I. Finally, everyone has woken up, alhamdulillah (with 6 days to go).

People keep complaining that “we have no lectures here (in the UAE) “.


We have lectures in Arabic, Urdu and English not to mention Chinese, Tagalog, Malayalam, etc. Sadly, Dubai, Sharjah and Ajman are really underrated by many when it comes to seeking Islamic knowledge. There’s so much going on. Sadly, most people are unaware of this.

So, what’s happening before Ramadan?

[Note: There’s probably more stuff going on than mentioned in this post. The really awful thing about us here in the Emirates is that when the time comes for us to share information, we’re as slow as the good old days when they used pigeons. It’s a total disgrace.]


For those in Ajman (and Sharjah), there’s a lecture TONIGHT in Preston University:


For those in Dubai, the Jumeirah Islamic Learning Centre (JILC) has a lecture series TONIGHT and tomorrow (registration is required):

Ramadhan Workshop

The Messenger Muhammad (pbuh) said:

“Every deed of man will receive ten to 700 times reward, except Siyam (fasting), for it is for Me and I shall reward it (as I like). There are two occasions of joy for one who fasts: one when he breaks the fast and the other when he will meet his Lord” (Muslim)

*Virtues of Ramadan                                       *Fiqh of fasting with Q &A

*Reaping the Opportunities of Ramadan            * The excellence of  Lailatul Qadr

Join us on the 4th & 5th August, 2010 for an open forum & much more

with our esteemed speakers, Inshallah.

Limited capacity 50 seats. Early registration preferred and a must.



For those who wish to educate their kiddies about Ramadan, JILC also has a special series for them:

** The Amazing Ramadhan

Workshop for Kidz**

Let your children learn about the importance of this special and holy month of Ramadhan and the role

it plays in our lives as Muslims.

This Saturday, Inshallah, 7th of August, 2010

From 10.00 am. -12.00 noon

And finally, last but definitely not last, our very own Sister Eman will be giving us a Ramadan Prep talk :

[For those of who in Dubai who have no clue who Sister Eman is, let me introduce her: She’s a very good sister, masha-Allah, who gives very heart-warming lectures based on the Quran and the Sunnah. We can all learn something from her, both with regards to knowledge and character. If you think I’m exaggerating, then attend one of her lectures and see for yourself.]

[Obviously, this lecture is for sisters only.]

If anyone has any more information about lectures by Ahlus Sunnah, then please let me know.

    Hey i think for the sisters, they may be able to find out more events from esisters on wordpress and other similar associations like Markaz Al Huda, Pearls of Wisdom and the Ladies Club in Dubai! inshallah khair

    Brother Arshad Khan sent us an email yesterday informing us of a new masjid in the area near Khalifah hospital in Ajman. It will be delivering English sermons, which is great news for me, alhamdulillah!

      Assalamu Alaikum.

      Jazakillahu kheira.

      WordPress now has a “like” button….

      I didn’t get any info about Markaz Al-Huda’s Ramadan prep program.I don’t know if they’ll have one this year.

      The Dubai Ladies Club usually has talks by Sister Eman. She had her pre-Ramadan talk there last year.

      What’s “Pearls of Wisdom”? Is that a centre?

      Yes, I got the email as well. I think that this is the second masjid in Ajman with an English khutbah.

    Copied the directions to the second masjid in Ajman with English Khutbahs:
    New Masjid for English Khutbah
    assalamu álaykum wa RahmatUllahe wa barakatoHu, brothers, sisters & friends,

    mashaAllah, by the Grace of Allah, Subhano wa Taála, Awqaf Ajman, has dedicated one more masjid in Ajman for the English khutbah.

    Khutab will commence from Al-Jumuah (Friday), August 6th, 2010, time of khutbah = time of azan for Ad-Dhuhr.

    I invite & welcome all of you to join us for the khutab, and


    Go straight in the direction of UAQ passing Ajman City Center on your right, you’ll reach the Ajman City Center Signal.

    Continue straight from this signal to the next signal.

    At this signal, you’ll see a 4-minar masjid Khalifa on your right. Take right at this signal.

    You’ll approach the first U-turn, take the U-Turn (Khalifa Hospital should be in front of you at the U-Turn),

    Once you’ve taken the U-turn, take the first right, along the boundary of the hospital.

    Go straight, all the way to the end of the road, you’ll reach a T-junction.

    Take right at the T-junction, you’ll see THE WHITE (NEW) MASJID about 150m on the right.

    To help you even better, there will be clear directions/signs on the street (starting from the Khalifa masjid) till the New Masjid.


    See you there.
