Ramadan 1440

“The month of Ramadan is the month when the Quran was sent down as guidance for mankind with clear proofs of guidance and the criterion by which to distinguish right from wrong.  Therefore, whoever of you is present in that month, let him fast; but he who is ill or on a journey shall fast a similar number of days later on.  Allah desires ease for you, not hardship,  He desires you to fast the whole month, so that you may glorify Him for His having guided you and so that you may be grateful to Him.” 

The Holy Quran – Surah 2, Verse 185

Leading by example

In the summer of 2017, Victor Lal created an organization called Canadians for Syria to enable him and his community to raise money for and sponsor Syrian refugees. In order to do this, Victor came up with the idea of biking from Toronto, Ontario to Newfoundland. He successfully raised almost $15,000, with help from Fiysabiylillah and the Islamic Foundation of Toronto to reach $30,000, for a Syrian refugee family who will hopefully be coming to Canada in the summer of 2018.

After biking halfway across the country, Victor has now set himself a new goal: swimming across Lake Ontario to raise $60,000 for more Syrian refugees. If you would like to help this cause, please visit www.canadiansforsyria.org/donate.

Love One Another

“Love One Another ” written by Fatima Alala

“Love for others what you love for yourself”, this was the message that seven year old Hanan got from the Hadith that her Madrasah teacher read to her. At public school , she was being surrounded by all the talk and valentine trinkets that her friends were getting excited about. Hanan was a bit confused and went to her Mom Fatima and asked her about the love of Allah and the Valentine love that her friends were all excited about.

Fatima explained to Hanan that Allah’s love is always present and never fails and this love on Valentine’s Day is only for one Day and is not available for the
next 364 days of the year. Allah is always caring, loving, kind, merciful, compassionate and most of all Forgiving. Hanan was so impressed by the Allah’s love that she wanted to tell everyone so Fatima came up with the idea that she and her daughter would get some friends and go down to Union Station in downtown Toronto on Valentine’s Day and tell people about Allah’s love for them…….
