Ramadan Mubarak and Ijtema Updates

As-Salamu Alaikum dear readers

As you have noticed, IJTEMA has been silent for the past half year or so. However, as promised, we had been working behind the scene on our next service. It derives from the same IJTEMA philosophy- sharing good content.

In preparation for the forthcoming launch of our latest service, we launched a new Facebook page, and Twitter stream.

To find out more, please stay tuned on Facebook and Twitter. If enough of you join the fan page on Facebook, we can register for a decent shortcut (i.e., facebook.com/ijtema). So please become a fan NOW!

We shall make the final announcements very soon, inshaAllah.

Please remember IJTEMA and the whole Ummah in your Du’a in this blessed month.

Cyber-counselling for Muslims

This sounds like an excellent service, masha’Allah. May Allah grant them success, Ameen.

The Sakina Center is a one-of-a-kind cyber-counseling service founded on the Islamic principles of humanity and understanding. We provide moral and spiritual support for Muslims in all circumstances. Our counselors are trained in the areas of counseling, social work, and psychology. The Sakina Center takes a unique approach in using Facebook as a counseling tool to carry out this social service. We counsel Muslims on all matters as they face many difficulties in todays world ranging from anxiety to Islamophobia. Our target focus is Muslim youth residing in Western, non-Muslim countries where these services are lacking.

Protect your Dignity

An Islamic perspective on Facebook, with advice on keeping our secrets.

The Messenger of Allah (??? ???? ???? ????) said: My entire nation is safe, except al-Mujahirin (those who boast of their sins). Among the Mujaharah is that a man commits an (evil) act, and wakes up in the morning while Allah has kept his (sin) a secret, he says: O so-and-so! Last night I did this and that. He goes to sleep while Allah has kept his (sin) a secret but he wakes up in the morning and uncovers what Allah has kept a secret! [Saheeh al-Bukhari]
