AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #99

"For Muslim men and women,- for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in Charity, for men and women who fast (and deny themselves), for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah's praise,- for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward."

(Surah 33: Al-Ahzab (The Confederates); verse 35)

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #98

"As for him who gives (in charity) and keeps his duty to Allah and fears Him,
And believes in Al-Husna (The Paradise).
We will make smooth for him the path of ease (goodness).
But he who is greedy miser and thinks himself self-sufficient.
And gives the lie to Al-Husna;
We will make smooth for him the path for evil;"

(Surah 92: Al-Lail (The Night); verses 5-10)

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #97

"And leave Me (alone to deal with) those in possession of the good things of life, who (yet) deny the Truth; and bear with them for a little while."

Ramadan 2016

A crucial time for all Muslims across the world is almost upon us. A time of gratitude, reflection and hope. Ramadan is the event where we give all thanks and praises to Allah, The One Source of everything. We show our appreciation for Him and His gifts He endlessly bestows on us by sacrificing some of the more significant things in our everyday lives during the daytime. Unfortunately, there are many people out there that are in a dire situation where they're not able to be kept fed regularly or have sufficient shelter from harsh weather conditions, so this annual occurrence reminds us that we all could be in a much more modest position, and to supplicate [pray] for those that are really struggling for Allah to improve their state of affairs.

Ramadan starts upon the sighting of the new moon; for 2015 this will commence around the evening of the 5th June; but as you may probably know, it is also dependant upon your location. Ramadan UK has various timetables for places around Britain, stating that fast spans between Fajr and Maghrib prayers.

AYTD hopes that you enjoy this special occasion, and that it strengthens your personal connection to Him. Please, never stop reaching out and conversing with Him - He is always there to listen to you; always.

Ramadan Mubarak to you all.
