Ramadan Reflections: Day 16
Bismillah... In the Name of Allah. the Most Merciful
Yesterday London time 12 midnight, I tuned into ILF live-stream "The halftime Report" a very timely conversation between Sheikh Omar Suleiman and Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan, the two giants working very hard in sharing their knowledge of our beautiful faith, MashAllah. May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala accept their efforts, ameen! May Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala give us the ability to learn from them and implement the lessons in our life, ameen!
I love the way they explain the issues we as the Muslims of this post-modern world face on a daily basis. I can really relate to them. One of the best thing about them is their use of recent technology to reach out as many people as possible, mashAllah. I am so blessed to have Bayyinah TV in my life. When I listen to the tafseer of the Qur'an by Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan, I feel like I have never heard the verses of the Qur'an he mentioned during the tafseer session. I have read the Qur'an so many times but didn't really understand the meaning of most of the verses. When you listen to the talks, it opens your heart and mind subhanallah. You can really connect to the Qur'an when you sincerely listen to the tafseer by him. InshAllah I hope to dedicate one whole post on Bayyinah very soon.
Alhamdulillah Sheikh Omar Suleiman's project ILF (Islamic Learning Foundation) is another awesome initiative to provide a solid foundation of knowledge. I have had the opportunity to listen to some of the lectures alhamdulillah. Yesterday , after the conversation Sheikh Omar did a surprise announcement alahmdulillah. I am so glad to let you know that from now on ILMFlix will be absolutely free! Alhamdulillah.
We will be able to listen to all ILF Texas online and onsite courses and Live broadcasts for absolutely no charge. Please don't miss this great opportunity. Alhamdulillah we are living at an age where the knowledge is coming to us through the internet alhamdulillah. Our predecessors had to travel for years to seek knowledge. Do we have any excuse not to seek knowledge, when Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala has made it so easy for us? So let us make this Ramadan an unforgettable one by registering and benefiting like a proper student to seek knowledge with adab (etiquette) only to please Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.
Having said that. please if you are able, do donate generously to ILF project. To make any project successful, we need regular amount of money coming in so that ILF can bring more teachers, introduce more course and improve the quality of live broadcast and videos. So we really need to be part of this khayr, bi'idnillah. You can donate at iLoveIlmFlix. Please spread the links and share the khayr with family and friends.
