    Ramadan Nights

    This holy month is very, very special. Every moment is a deep prayer for you-when you sleep, when you eat, when you walk. It is a time for deep praying, from the beginning to the end. So open you heart. Open your heart completely, and be in the deep sincerity, and trust ALLAH.  In Ramadan the nights are blessed, because thier is no veil between you and ALLAH. So take your chance in this great opportunity in this blessed month. Join us for a potluck Iftar-e-mentary with Abdullah Haroon and the Zawiya family.  

    The word dhikr means remembrance and in the Islamic context, it is used in the sense of remembrance of Allah.  Allah (swt) tells us in the Quran:

    يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱذۡكُرُواْ ٱللَّهَ ذِكۡرً۬ا كَثِيرً۬ا

    “O you who believe! Remember Allah with much remembrance.” (33:41)  Our Prophet (saw) also told us:

    “He who remembers his Lord and he who does not are like the living and the dead.” (Bukhari & Muslim)

    Dhikr is an all-embracing term that, in addition to including the ritual acts of worship, covers an array of activities of the tongue and heart. It involves thinking of and making mention of Allah at all times and in every area of our lives. This is the worship that has no special time, but is performed constantly so that it permanently links up man’s life with Allah and His service.The importance of constant dhikr cannot be emphasized enough, particularly if we desire to be on the receiving end of Allah’s attention, Grace and Mercy.  Allah tells us in the Quran: “Then remember Me, I will remember you.”(2:152) Our Prophet (saw) told us that Allah has said: “I am with My servant when he remembers Me and his lips move making mention of Me.” (Bukhari) Our Prophet (saw) also said: “A man does nothing more calculated to rescue him from Allah’s punishment than making mention of Allah.” (Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah)
