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
Saying Subhana Allah when seeing the lightning or hearing the thunder is a supererogatory act.

Ibn Jarir also reported from Abu Hurairah (Radiya Allahu Anhu) that he said: “The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) used to say when hearing the thunder:
“سبحان من يسبح الرعد بحمده” (Glorified is He Whom the thunder glorifies and praises)“ . Continue reading
