The month of Muharram marks the beginning of a new year within the Islamic calendar. Often at the beginning of a new year people tend to make goals for the upcoming months – with the most popular goal being DIETING.
Transforming our health habits does not need to be weeks of “starvation” and rigorous exercise. This type of sudden change in regimen will only lead to temporary triumph but not long-term successes. When looking to make any type of personal change the best advice is to follow the Sunnah. One of the miracles of the Qur’an and Hadith is that it addresses all major and minor issues of one’s daily life including our diet. Let’s look at What did the Prophet (s) do?
IQRA’ would like to wish safe travels to all the Hajjis getting ready to embark on life’s most sacred and blessed journey. Inshallah may your Hajj be easy for you and may it be accepted with the highest rewards (Ameen).
To assist the Hajjis that are traveling from abroad IQRA’ has put together a list of items to pack for Hajj based on recommendations from previous hajjis.
Teach your kids about the immense blessings and rewards received from completing Hajj. Use simple activities to build a desire within your children to visit the blessed house of Allah (swt) from a young age. Explain that the first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah are special like the last 10 days of Ramadan. In fact, Allah (swt) says that no days are more beloved to Him than the first 10 days Hajj.
