JUMU’AH MUBARAK

Jumu’ah is a day of love and thankfulness, shukr. Every Jumu’ah we need to be positive, distribute love, and give thanks to Our Creator for all His Blessings.”

Verses from the Qur’ani Karim

Qur’an, Sura Al Fatiha, Chapter 1

1. In the name of Allah, Al Rahman [The One Who Acts with Mercy], Al Rahim [The Source of Mercy].

Qur’an, Sura Al Nur, Chapter 24

35. Allah is the Nur of the heavens and the earth. …

36. (This Nur is found) in the houses which Allah has given permission for exaltation and doing the zikr [repeated remembrance with contemplation] of His name through tasbih of Him, morning and evening.

Qur’an, Sura Al Ma’ida, Chapter 5

15. O people of the Kitab, now Our Rasul [Messenger] has come to you. He is revealing clearly much of what you were hiding in the Kitab and pardoning much. Now a nur [enlightenment] of Allah has come to you and a Kitab which is clear and encompassing.

35. O you who accept, believe and comply, have taqwa and seek a wasila [means whereby one attains nearness to Allah] and strive in His path in order that you may reach salvation.
