Assalamu Alaikum.

Ramadan is the 4th Pillar of Islam. It depends on two pillars that come before it: the 1st pillar (i.e. the Shahaadah) and the 2nd pillar (i.e. Salaah).

How many people say the Shahaadah and sadly, how very few people understand it. How do we know that? By their actions. Their actions are contrary to the essence of this testimony.

Islam has five pillars. Iman has six: Belief in Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, The Last Day and Qadr (Pre-destination) (all of them fall under the Shahaadah, by the way). These may seem quite basic at first, but I assure you that you could write millions of volumes on just these six pillars. And no, I’m not joking – all my students will attest to that. They realised after studying these pillars that there’s a whole new world out there.

So, what do we do now? We learn about them, of course.

For all those who complain about 1) the lack of resources in English 2) the expense of Islamic classes or 3) lack of transport, try this website:

It’s got FREE books (very good quality), audios, videos, and magazines! They also have some free courses. What more do you need?

Please, please, please, please, please go through the QSEP website and start doing some of the courses. Don’t say that you know everything because the people of knowledge do not say this – it’s only the extremely ignorant ones who would allow such words to escape from their lips.

The QSEP website focuses on tawheed (worshipping Allah alone) and trust me, once you learn about this, your eyes will open. All my students pointed out how glad they were to learn about tawheed – because it was the answer to all their problems and touched upon every aspect of their lives.

And please inform everybody about the website as well. You’ll get the reward for it.
