• Astaghfirullah (I ask Allah for forgiveness) three times.
• Allahumma anta al-salām wa minka al-salām tabarakta ya dhal-jalali wa’l-ikrām
Translation: O Allāh, You are the One Who is free from all defects and deficiencies and from You is all peace, blessed are You, O Possessor of majesty and honour.
• La ilaha ill-Allāh wahdahu la shareeka lah, lahu’l-mulk wa lahu’l-hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer. La hawla wa la quwwata illa Billah wa la na’budu illa iyyah. Lahu’l-ni’mah wa lahu’l-fadl wa lahu’l-thana al-hasan. La ilaha ill-Allah mukhliseena lahu’l-deena wa law kariha’l-kafiroon. Allahumma la mani’a lima a’tayta wa la mu’tiya lima mana’ta wa la yanfa’u dha’l-jaddi minka al-jadd.
Translation: “There is no god but Allah Alone, with no partner or associate His is the sovereignty and to Him be praise, and He is Able to do all things. There is no power and no strength except with Allah, and we worship none but Him. From Him (alone) come all blessings and favours, and all good praise is due to Him. There is no god but Allah and we make our worship purely for Him (alone) however much the disbelievers may hate that. O Allah, none can withhold what You give and none can give what You withhold, and no wealth or majesty can benefit anyone for from You is all wealth and majesty.” Continue reading

Allah is the Creator of all things.
Allah is the Creator of the plants and animals.
Allah is the Creator of the stars and the sun, the earth and the moon.
Allah is the Creator of the oceans and mountains.
Allah is the Creator of the angels and the unseen worlds.
Allah is the Creator of you and I.
Allah is the Creator of all things.

A Child’s Prayer
I sometimes lie awake at night,
And wonder at the stars so bright,
I dream about my future too,
And all the things that I will do.
Soon the Ummah will count on me,
I’m the future, they all agree,
And people depend on me somehow,
Though small and timid I am now.
So you and I, my dearest friend,
Must stand together till the end,
For we are one by Allah’s Grace,
No matter what our language or race.
We must prepare ourselves today,
While we journey on life’s way,
So education, we must crave,
From the cradle to the grave.
So those entrusted with our care,
Train us please and do your share,
We’ll make you proud of us somehow,
So waste no time and teach us now.
We need your love and tender care,
And your sincere and ardent prayer,
So much there is to learn and see,
For true believers we must be.
“O Allah, we do love You so,
Give us health and make us grow,
Be with us each passing day,
While we journey on life’s way.”

Alhamdulillah, I’m happy to have had the opportunity to try out this amazing program from the Understand the Qur’an Academy (UQA) for 30 days. MashaAllah, the teacher is really knowledgeable! May Allah reward him and his team for all the efforts for helping us to understand the book of Allah.
When learning to read from the Qur’an, the first thing that needs to be learnt is the tajweed. This is the way in which the prophet used to recite and therefore we should follow in his footsteps. Once we learn how to read the Qur’an, it also helps to understand the words and their meanings. This is what the course by the UQA entails, a person gains the ability to understand the meaning of every single word!
My experience with UQA has been great! I’ve been looking for an effective way to know the meaning of the Qur’an without having to learn the Arabic language first. Continue reading
