DIGITAL ISLAM

FOLLOW INSPIRING ISLAMIC FIGURES ON SOCIAL MEDIA:

If there are people that particularly inspire you, that you can relate to and be engaged by, follow them on all of their social media channels and you will be sure to see snippets of motivation and eman boosting content flooding through your news feed. Some of my favourites include; Mufti Ismail Menk, Hamza Yususf, Omar Suleiman, Nouman Ali Khan and Yasmin Mogahed.

ATTEND OR SET UP AN ONLINE HALAQAH: If you don’t have the time to physically attend an Islamic circle in the flesh, then it is perfectly possible to do this online with a small group of your friends or like minded sisters that are pro-active and committed. As a mum of two small children it is not always easy for me to attend things, especially in the evenings so myself and a few friends even Selina, Co-Founder of Amaliah joins, we set up a weekly group online, we have a focused theme (eg at the moment we are working through the book The Productive Muslim) and each person takes it in turns to prepare and deliver. We use a free downloadable app called Zoom, which gives us a video conference space from the comfort of our own homes.

“Those that remember Me in their heart, I remember them in My heart; and those that remember Me in a gathering (i.e that make mention of Me) I remember them (i.e make mention of them) in a gathering better than theirs.” 

[Hadith Qudsi]

Benefits of a  regular, Halaqa

  • Discipline and Aklaq will develop if done regularly.
  • Can be done from wherever you are.
  • Weekly Imaan boost.
  • You learn something new weekly or are reminded of things you may have forgotten.
  • Zoom calls are 45 mins so allow the person delivering to be concise and organized when delivering.

“The Prophet (S) told us that these are the most regular constant deeds even though they are few

(Bukhari).

FOLLOW A SHORT SERIES ON YOUTUBE: There are so many excellent resources available on youtube but if you need something more structured to help keep you focused, seek out a series and better still, do it with a buddy so that you can reflect and share informally, between watching videos. Quran weekly has some great bitesize topics including; Quranic Gems, Stories of the Prophets and Marriage Makeover.
