How to keep your heart healthy

Reach new spiritual heights by purifying your heart! As we detox from food, our soul craves to be detoxed spiritually. Yet certain emotions and patterns of behaviour keep pulling us down. These emotions affect our behaviour and coat the heart and affect our connection with Allah Almighty. Our connection with Allah Almighty is the source of all goodness in our life, but can become easily clogged, and block our access to Allah’s light and guidance. If we do not unclog this connection, we become numb. How can we unclog our hearts?   Course overview We will examine common spiritual diseases of the hearts, with a special focus on emotions. This will be an emotional, spiritual and practical journey to diagnose, cure and heal the heart. We will outline the remedies from the Quran and Sunnah to enable you help cleanse the heart and strengthen your immunity against future disease inshallah. This course will examine 7 common ailments of the hearts. They are not always obvious to us and we have them to varying degrees.

Utrujj Foundation Tafseer Classes New! From September 2021   “ a blessed Book which We have revealed to you, , that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded.” (38:29) Curriculum Tafseer of Juz Amma Tafseer of Juz Tabarak Surat Al Araf onwards (Juz 8 - 28)   How do I subscribe? Pay monthly £50 (£18 per week) which drops to £45 Pay annually £480 Donation Type One time Recurring Why study tafseer? In practice, how much significance do we actually give to the teachings of the Quran? The words of Allah are directly addressing us as a guidance and to benefit our life. The Quran was not revealed just for a certain period or a specific place; but is applicable during all times and places and it is for us to use as a guide to our every complex and confusing world. The recitation of the Quran is a beautiful act of worship, but we often overlook the fact that thinking and reflecting on the Quran, using the reason and intellect that Allah has blessed us with, to understand the Quran is also an act of worship in itself. As we ponder on the verses, understand the reason for revelation and to comprehend its rulings only then will its objectives be realised. This is where we can truly discover the wisdom that lies within. The Tafseer classes at Utrujj Foundation led by Shaykh Haytham Tamim will take you on enriching journey to understanding the Quran verse by verse. As you marvel at the beauty, wisdom and stunning words of Allah the Almighty, it is hoped that you can experience the Quran come alive in your reality. The sessions will explore verse by verse in context to our reality of the modern world. Shaykh Haytham...

Tarawih 2022 – Live and Online

  Join Shaykh Haytham Tamim for Night Prayers Live or Online EVERY NIGHT inshallah 9.45pm - 10.45pm Address: 129 Salusbury Rd, London NW6 6PE Doors will be open at 9:30 and closed at 10:00. Late comers will not be allowed in. 8 rakah Salah with a short reminder from the Quran followed by witr and dua. https://youtu.be/awAtIVD9cDI Live on YouTube Instructions: Following adhan Shaykh prays 4 rakahs fard Isha, DO NOT follow this livestreamed. Pray Isha by yourself, followed by the 2 rakahs sunnah. Then join the tarawih salah.  •Do not place the screen in front of you. •You may join the salah from anywhere in the world as long as it is before Fajr. •Ensure you recite surah Fatiha behind the imam. •Continue praying by yourself if you lose connection and complete the salah. Permissibility for praying live-streamed This year our mosques are open for tarawih, and it is the sunnah to pray the tarawih in congregation. Anyone who is able to and wants to should pray in the masjid. However, as we still have exceptional circumstances, with a global pandemic that has already claimed millions of lives worldwide, people are still vulnerable and susceptible to catching the virus and spreading the virus. If anyone finds the prospect of attending tarawih in the masjid difficult, for instance they are worried that they may fall sick, or that they may spread the virus to others, or that they are otherwise unable to go to the masjid, they have the option to follow the tarawih online. Undoubtedly it is preferable to pray tarawih in the masjid. There is more reward and it is the sunnah. However, as it is a sunnah salah, not a fard, there is some flexibility on this matter. The Prophet (peace be on him) used to pray...

How to LEAD a better life

Become a better leader in your sphere of influence. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “Every one of you is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock. The leader of people is a guardian and is responsible for his subjects. A man is the guardian of his family and he is responsible for them. A woman is the guardian of her husband’s home and his children and she is responsible for them. The servant of a man is a guardian of the property of his master and he is responsible for it. No doubt, every one of you is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock.” (Bukhari and Muslim) We are ALL leaders... Whether we are a parent, a teacher, an employer or the leader of an organisation, we are inevitably responsible for others. This responsibility is not something we are always trained for. Moreover, human interactions are always fraught with challenges. This Ramadan, Shaykh Haytham Tamim will deliver a course looking at the stories of the Messengers (peace be on them) in the Quran and glean the tips for how YOU can LEAD a better life. How YOU can influence, inspire and create change in your own sphere. When is it?

He died in 660AH. al-Fawaid fi Ikhtisar al-Maqasid The primary purpose of the Shariah is to promote benefit for the individual and society and to minimise harm.
