Ramadan Forum 2010 Website

Assalamu Alaikum.

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).

For those who are looking forward to the upcoming Ramadan Forum 2010: “Gathering to Succeed”, the official website has been launched in both English (click here) and Arabic (click here).

Ramadan Warm up Talk TONIGHT for Sisters in Dubai

Assalamu Alaikum.

As mentioned in an earlier post, we do have lots going on in the UAE (especially in Dubai, although people from outside have this misconception that we only have tall buildings and disco clubs here!)

Sister Eman’s talk is tomorrow:

[Update: Please note the change in venue.]

For those sisters that are working and can’t attend in the mornings, Sister Qadria (who’s supposed to be as awesome as Sister Eman) will be having a talk tonight at 8:45 pm in the Dubai Ladies Club.

Please spread the word.

Jazakumullahu kheira.



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.]
