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 of His name through tasbih of Him, morning and evening.

Qur’an, Sura Yusuf, Chapter 12

  1. (O Muhammad!) Before you We did not send anyone as messengers except men whom We inspired from among the people of their towns. Have they not travelled in the land and seen what happened to those who were before them? And truly, the abode of the hereafter for those who act with taqwa is better. Do you not use your sense?
