Homeless Food Bank Appeal

Posted by on 6:36 pm in Blog, Events | 3 comments

A new initiative to help the homeless and disadvantaged residents in the borough.

“No money ever decreases because of charity; when a servant of Allah forgives, Allah increases him in dignity and whenever a person humbles himself to Allah, Allah will elevate his status”. Narrated by Bukhari & Muslim

Seven Kings Masjid is launching a new initiative to help the homeless and disadvantage residents of Redbridge.

In Sha Allah they are organising a collection of food and toiletry items that will be donated to the borough’s most needy.

We request everyone to bring at least one item from the list below. It would be beneficial if our children were themselves to choose the item this will give them ownership and instill them with Islamic charitable morals. As you can see from the list the costs of these items vary from less than 50p to £2.00.

Sugar (500g), Fruit Juice (carton), Soup, Pasta Sauces, Tomatoes (Tinned), Cereals, Rice Pudding (Tinned), Tea Bags/Instant Coffee, Instant Mash Potato, Rice/Pasta, Tinned Fruit, Biscuits or snack bars, Toiletries (men & women) Jam/preserves

If we all play our part in this initiative we can make a huge impact in supporting the less fortunate residents than us.

Please can you bring the items during the following times from 15th December to 19th December 2014.

May Allah reward us all.

Introduction

Listening to the Qur’an being recited correctly is enough to soften even the hardest of hearts and Muslims and non-Muslims alike find it a deeply moving experience even if they do not understand what is being said. We feel this even more in Ramadan when we are in the Taraweeh prayers and we can really feel the difference if we go to a Masjid where the Tajweed rules of Qur’an recitation are not being observed as they should. Every single Muslim has to recite Qur’an in Salah but many of us do not realise that reciting the Qur’an correctly, observing the rules of recitation is not an advanced science for expert reciters alone, rather it is an obligation upon each and every one of us whenever we recite the Qur’an.

What is Tajweed

The word Tajweed linguistically means ‘proficiency’ or ‘doing something well’. It comes from the same root letters as the word ‘Jayyid’ in Arabic (meaning ‘good’): Jeem, Waw and Daal. When applied to the Qur’an, it means giving every letter of the Qur’an its rights and dues of characteristics when we recite the Qur’an and observing the rules that apply to those letters in different situations. We give the letters their rights by observing the essential characteristics of each letter that never leave it. And we give them their dues by observing the characteristics of each letter that are present in them some of the time and not present at other times. The Qur’an was revealed with Tajweed rules applied to it. In other words, when the angel Jibreel (alaihis salaam) recited the words of Allah to the Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) he recited them in a certain way and he showed the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) the ways in which it was permissable to recite the Qur’an. So it is upon us to observe those rules so that we recite it in the way it was revealed. At the time of the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) there was no need for people to study Tajweed because they talked with what is now known as Tajweed so it was natural for them. When the Arabs started mixing with the non-Arabs as Islam spread, mistakes in Qur’an recitation started appearing, so the scholars had to record the rules. Now, because the everyday Arabic that Arabs speak has changed so much from the Classical Arabic with which the Qur’an was revealed, even Arabs have to study Tajweed.

This Kalimah is also called Kalimah Tawheed and Kalimah Tayyibah.

سُبْحَان اللهِ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ وَ لآ اِلهَ اِلاّ اللّهُ، وَ اللّهُ اَكْبَرُ وَلا حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّة الاّ بِاللّهِ الْعَلِىّ الْعَظِيْم
“Glory be to Allah and Praise to Allah, and there is no Allah But Allah, and Allah is the Greatest. And there is no Might or Power except with Allah, the Exalted, the Great one.

Transliteration: Subhanallahi, wal Hamdu lillahi, wa laa ilaaha illallahu, wallahu Akbar. Wa laa Hawla wa laa Quwwata illa billahil ‘Aliyyil ‘Azeem

The Fourth Kalimah
لا اله الا الله وحده لا شريك له له الملك و له الحمد يحى و يميت بيده الخير و هو علي كلي شيئ قدير
“There is none worthy of worship except Allah, He is alone. He has no partner. For him is the Kingdom, and for Him is all praise. He gives life and causes death. In His hand is all good. And He has power over everything)

Transliteration: Laa ilaaha illallaahu wahdahoo laa shareeka lahu. Lahul mulku, wa lahul hamdu, yuhyiy wa yumeetu biyadihil khayr wa huwa alaa kulli shay-in qadeer

 


Kalimah Radd-e-Kufr (Disproving of Kufr)

The Fifth Kalimah
اللهم اني اعوذ بك من ان اشرك بك شيا و انا اعلم به و استغفرك لما لا اعلم به تبت عنه و تبرأت من الكفر و الشرك و الكذب و المعاصي كلها اسلمت و آمنت و اقول لا اله الا الله محمد الرسول الله
“O Allah! I seek protection in You from that I should not join any partner with You knowingly. I seek Your forgiveness from that which I do not know. I repent from it (ignorance) I free myself from disbelief and joining partners with You and from all sins. I submit to Your will I believe and I declare: There is none worthy of worship besides Allah and Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم is Allah’s Messenger.

Transliteration: Allaahumma inniy a’oodhu bika min an ushrika bika shay-an wa ana a’alamu bihi wa astaghfiruka lima laa a’alamu bih. Tubtu anhu wa tabarratu minal kufri wash-shirki wal kizbi wal ma’aasi kullihaa aslamtu wa aamantu wa aqoolu laa ilaaha illallaahu Muhammadur rasoolullah

Letter to Parents

FRIENDLY FOOTBALL COMPETITION

Seven Kings Football has arranged a friendly football competition against children from Redbridge Islamic Centre and Ilford Muslim Society for those aged between 6 and 16 years old.

The competition will be split into three age categories:

6 to 9 years

10 to 13 years

14 to 16 years.

The competition will be held on

11th May 2014 at Seven Kings Park,

(off Meads Lane),

Seven Kings,

Ilford,

Essex.

If you would like your child to participate please fill in the form below and return it to your respective Sunday football session coaches.

Every child will get an opportunity to play through the use of a rotation system. This is an opportunity for the three communities, which live within minutes of each other, to get to know one another better and build a wider, stronger and more cohesive community.

We encourage competitiveness, but not rivalry, hence this will be a friendly competition arranged by all communities.

If attending, your child is requested to be at Seven Kings Park at 9.45am sharp in order to facilitate a prompt start to the competition at 10am. We aim to conclude the competition by 12.30pm.

We strongly encourage all parents and community members to attend.

If you would like to assist on the day then please email info@skmet.co.uk . All help is appreciated.
