Our Ramadan Message:
A Fasting person obtains five magnificence gifts. Among them are:
Fasting is one of the pillars of the Deen of Islam and in this month the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam would intensify and diversify his actions of worship of Allah Ta’ala. In doing so, he(Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) laid the foundation for His(Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) Ummah after Him(Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) to emulate. He(Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) would intensify the amount of Sadaqah that He(Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) would give. He(Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) was the most generous out of all people and Ramadaan was the time when He(Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) was most generous. Whenever any person requested something of the Holy Prophet Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam, He(Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) immediately obliged. He (Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) would fill His(Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) time staying up late at night in Ibadah, reciting Qur’an Shareef, performing Salaah, remembering Allah Ta’ala, and the Beloved Prophet Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam habitually retired in seclusion in the last 10 days of Ramadaan (I’tikaaf).
Likewise, the Faithful Companions(RadiAllahuma Ajma’een) followed the this practice as set by the Beloved Prophet(Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wasallam) in this month by performing excessive or increase in Ibadah.This Ramadaan, let us try to improve our character as well as abandon bad habits and malpractices. We must become the true followers of Islam, in this era of Atheism and the emergence of false Sects and destruction of moral values. Today, the true teachings of the Ahle Sunnah are expounded in the works of the Great Mujaddid, Imam Abdul Mustafa Ahmad Ridha Muhaddith Bareilwi (Alaihr Rahmah) and we should be guided by those teachings. We pray that Allah Ta’ala grant us all the Taufeeq to remain steadfast on his teachings, to keep all our Ramadaan fast and may Allah Ta’ala in His Infinite Mercy accept all our fasts. Aameen.
An Introduction to the Jamia:
At the same time it may emphatically gird them up with modern knowledge, so that they could safeguard themselves against heretical ideologies and material outlook and with their reasonable and logical approach they could put forth Islam to others, as an ideal and evergreen way of life that is beneficial to mankind.
The 20th century’s great Islamic reviver, the Imam Ahmad Raza Khan, is the only thinker who brought about an awakening in the Muslim community and provided a safe guard for Islam from the different seductions of the era.Sub serving this ideology, Huzoor Tajush Shar’iah felt a strong urge to lay down an effective system of education for the Sunni Muslims, which may infuse into our learners orthodox as well as essential modern branches of knowledge.Hence keeping the above view, the Centre of Islamic Studies Jamiatur Raza was instituted on the 29th day of May 2000 and from the very beginning it has been following this aims and objectives.
