الحمد لله نحمده ونستعينه ونستغفره ونعوذ بالله من شرور أنفسنا ومن سيئات أعمالنا
من يهده الله فلا مضل له ومن يضلل فلا هادي له وأشهد أن لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له وأشهد أن محمدا عبده ورسوله
This is an imported and improved version of my existing Islamic Studies blog:
As the UAE Ministry of Education brought about a change in the Islamic Studies Curriculum in the UAE in the academic year 2010-11, this new blog is created while retaining the old blog for the benefit of those following Studies in Islam/Islamic Education series of text books especially in Gulf countries.
This blog will, Inshaa’Allah, serve as a bridge between teachers and students in the teaching-learning of Islamic Studies in the UAE. However, any student of Islam, living in any part of the world, can use this blog as a resource, InShaa’Allah.
I would appreciate if parents, students & teachers send in their suggestions & comments.
May Allah accept our efforts, forgive us of our sins, give us the good of this world and the good of the Hereafter, and save us from the torment of the hell-fire. Aameen
إِنْ أُرِيدُ إِلَّا الْإِصْلَاحَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ ۚ وَمَا تَوْفِيقِي إِلَّا بِاللَّـهِ ۚ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَإِلَيْهِ أُنِيبُ
“I only intend reform as much as I am able. And my success is not but through Allah. Upon him I have relied, and to Him I return.” Surah Huud 11:88
Please do remember me, my parents, my family & entire Muslim Ummah in your du’aa.
جزاك الله خيرا May Allah Reward You with abundant Goodness.

My Favourite Du’aa:
اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أسئلك مِنْ خَيْر مَا سَأَلَكَ مِنْهُ نَبِيُّكَ محمَّدٌ
وأعوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا استَعَاذَ مِنْهُ نَبِيُّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ
وأنتَ المُسْتَعانُ ، وَعَليْكَ البَلاَغُ
وَلا حَولَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إِلا باللهِ
“O Allah, I ask from You all those good things which Your Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) has asked from You; and I seek refuge in You from all those evil things from which Your Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) has sought refuge from You. You are the One from Whom help is sought and Yours is the responsibility to communicate (the truth). There is no power or strength except with Allah the Exalted, the Great.”
