  2. 2. رَمَضَانَ RAMADHAN: A DIVINE GIFT TO MANKIND THE GIVEN TOPIC Organiser Darul Arqam (Muslim Converts Assaociation of Singapore)
  3. 3. REFLECT ON THIS: <ul><li>Praise belongs to Allah who guided us to His praise and placed us among the people of praise, that we might be among the thankful for His beneficence and that He might recompense us for that with the recompense of the good-doers! </li></ul>OPENING DU’A OF IMAM ‘ALI IBN HUSSAIN ZEIN-AL-’ABIDEEN ( al-Sajjad) A.S. AllRightsReserved©Zhulkeflee2009
  4. 4. REFLECT ON THIS: <ul><li>And praise belongs to Allah who showed favour to us through His religion, singled us out for His creed, and directed us onto the roads of His beneficence, in order that through His kindness we might travel upon them to His good pleasure, a praise which He will accept from us and through which He will be pleased with us! </li></ul>AllRightsReserved©Zhulkeflee2009
  5. 5. REFLECT ON THIS: <ul><li>And praise belongs to Allah who appointed among those roads His month, the month of Ramadan, the month of fasting, the month of submission, the month of purity, the month of putting to test, the month of standing in prayer, in which the Qur'an was sent down as guidance to the people, and as clear signs of the Guidance and the Separator! </li></ul>AllRightsReserved©Zhulkeflee2009
  6. 6. REFLECT ON THIS: <ul><li>He clarified its excellence over other months by the many sacred things and well-known excellencies which He placed therein, for He made unlawful in it what He declared lawful in others to magnify it, He prohibited foods and drinks in it to honour it, and He appointed for it a clear time which He (majestic and mighty is He) allows not to be set forward and accepts not to be placed behind. </li></ul>AllRightsReserved©Zhulkeflee2009

  12. 12. “ We do not sent you (O Muhammad) except as a mercy for the worlds. Say (tell them): It is only inspired in me that your God is One God. Will ye then surrender (unto Him)?” ( Qur’an: Anbiya: 21: 107-108 ) THE REAL GIFT FOR MANKIND IS THIS : AllRightsReserved©Zhulkeflee2009 TASAWWUR ISLAM
  13. 13. Say: &quot;O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” ( Qur’an: Az-Zumar: 39: 53 ) THE REAL GIFT FOR MANKIND IS THIS : AllRightsReserved©Zhulkeflee2009

  25. 25. We have been advised by world renown contemporary scholar-thinker, S. M. Naquib Al-Attas, that: “ The learned and wise among Muslims must use constant vigilance in detecting erroneous usage in language which impinges upon semantic change in major key elements and creates general confusion and error in the understanding of Islam and of its worldview.” Quote: Prof. S M Naquib al-Attas “The Concept of Education in Islam” pp. 37-38 AND I AM OF THE VIEW THAT THE SUGGESTED TOPIC TO BE CLAIMING SOMETHING, WHICH MAY NOT BE ACCURATE .....
