Assalamu’alaikum, respected brothers and sisters,
On behalf of Darul Uloom Islamic Academy of Brisbane, we wish you all a happy Ramadhan Mubarak. We pray that all of us are in the best state of Imaan and Health.
Masha Allah, the holy month of Ramadan has once again came to us. Let’s welcome it with open arms and saying Alhamdulillah as there are a lot of blessings and rewards that will be given to us.
This month is a special month for us as Muslims as we taste how it feels to be a person who has no food or drink and so this makes us more generous towards those people who are less fortunate than us. This month is a month of generosity. It is a month were people should be more generous. There is a Hadith of our beloved prophet Muhammad S.A.W. Where it says that Nabi S.A.W. is the most generous of people and the most generous time that he was in, was during the Holy month of Ramadhan.
Ramadhan also teaches us patience. A person learns how to control themselves from their inner desires and passions. This in itself is a kind of self-discipline that teaches a person to be in charge of their decisions that they make in their daily lives.
Fasting Ramadhan is a great training for our soul so that it would be able to bear every hardship in our life. In this month Allah gives many chances to us to train our soul by doing more Ibadah that can make us get closer to Allah such as doing Tarawih, Qiyamul lail, recite the holy Qur’an and many other Ibadah.
Let’s take as much as benefits from the lessons of this blessed month of Ramadhan. Let’s make this Ramadhan the best Ramadhan as we don’t know if we will meet Ramadhan again next year.Our Ramadhan programs will be as follows:
Experiencing to read the holy Qur’an with Tajweed everyday 15 mins before Iftaar.
Light up the nights of Ramadhan by prayingTarawih with 3 Huffaz who will complete the Qur’an.
Daily Qiyamul Lail
Recharge our ruhiyah and get closer to Allah everyday 30 mins before Fajr prayer.
A short talk after Tarawih which will briefly explain the tafseer of the surah being recited.
I’TIKAF on the last 10 nights
Find the blessed night of Laylatul Qadr which its reward is the same as 1000 months of ibadah.
A short talk about the importance of Ramadhan and Khatamul Qur’an on the 27th night of Ramadhan.

Feel the great Muslim Community and meet new brothers and sisters in Islam in our community Iftaar and dinner every weekend.
