I just wanted to alert the sisters who may still be unaware that Sister Iman (I mentioned her in this post) is giving (free) talks throughout Ramadan. This is the schedule:
[Click on the image to enlarge its size.]
There are both morning and evening lectures.
The lectures sound fantastic, to be frank with you. (And knowing Sister Iman, they probably are fantastic. May Allah reward her greatly.)
For more information, please visit their website.
Please be sure to inform all the sisters that you know.
I mentioned the Ramadan forum in an earlier post.
It seems that they have Arabic lectures too. One of their speakers is Shaikh Muhammad Al-Arifi. He’s the author of “Enjoy Your Life”. You can download it from my other blog (it’s on the right hand side).
He narrated the funniest story that I have ever heard (a true story):
Here’s the email I got about the website details:
Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,
All praise belongs to Allah, Who has given us such a blessed month of Mercy and Forgiveness.
The Ramadan Tent in Twar, famous for their Arabic lectures for the past 8 years, will also feature English lectures from well-renowned speakers on the 11th – 17th of Ramadhan (21st-27th of August).

… and much more!
You can also watch videos of last year’s Arabic lectures here.
Please forward to as many people as possible. Spread the word around and may you be rewarded for any person who attends and gains knowledge through your efforts.
Preston University in Ajman will hold their weekly Ramadan lecture tomorrow, insha-Allah.
Topic: Ramadan – For Self-Development
[Sounds good. If any of you attends, would it be possible to share the notes? Jazakumullahu kheira.]
Lecturer: Brother Abdul Basit Al-Arkani
[He’s a good lecturer, masha-Allah. I like his talks.]
Date: Thursday, August 19
[I think that they’ll pray Taraweeh in the university before the lecture. You can check with them, insha-Allah. Either way, from what I remember about Ajman, they have lots of masjids with short taraweehs!]
Location: F-03 in Preston University, Ajman
Here’s a location map of the University. It’s the old campus of Ajman University of Science and Technology.
