Ramadan Mubarak to you and your families, The Akh hopes that Allah Az’Wajjal accepts your Saum (fasting), Ibadat (acts of worship) and Duah’s (prayers).
Alhumdullilah, in the UK we all have started Ramadan together, whether we have Eid together of course is another question. That’s mainly thanks to the taxi mafia goon squads that own our masajids (see last post).
Just like last Ramadan, I’ll be posting up a breakdown of every Ajiza/Juz section of the Quran on a daily basis. While it’s good to stand for salaat tarweh, it’s just as important that for all of us for whom Arabic is not our first language, to understand what is being recited. Insh’Allah the first Juz goes up tonight.
The Akh received an email a month ago which I’ll post in it’s entirety below, let’s see if the calculations prove to be correct:
Assalaamu Alaykum W W
