A Brother’s reminder…

 

Salam,
 
With the first ten days of Dhul'-Hijjah almost upon us I remind myself
and then you of the following: Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with
him) said that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)
said: "There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to
Allaah than these ten days." They said: "Not even jihad for the sake
of Allaah?" He said: "Not even jihad for the sake of Allaah, unless a
man goes out himself for jihad taking his wealth with him and does not
come back with anything." Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 2/457
 
Among the things we are encouraged to do during this blessed month is
to increase in good deeds generally and in particular we know that the
Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, used to fast during the
first nine days! So let's tighten our belts and get ready....!
 
May Allah (SWT) reward you all for all your hard work.
 
Wa- salâmu 'alaykum wa rahmatuAllâhi wa barakâtuhu
 
Your brother,

UCDISOC in the Spotlight! AlhamduliLLAH :)

UCD Islamic Society raise over €1000 during Charity Week

Submitted by Colin Sweetman, otwo Editor on Tuesday, 10 November 2009

The UCD Islamic Society raised over €1,000 during their Charity Week, which took place from Monday 26th October to Sunday 1st November. Throughout the duration of the week, which was run in conjunction with the Federation of Student Islamic Societies (FOSIS), an estimated €1,200 was raised in aid of orphanages and schools in Kenya, Somalia, Palestine, Gaza and Kashmir.

The first event of the week was held in the Student Centre, where the society held a Cake Sale. Volunteers baked or donated cakes in addition to selling henna art and tattoos to any students interested in having body art applied.

Other events that took place during the week included a movie night on the evening of Thursday 29th, featuring the award-winning documentary Occupation 101, a film depicting the conflict between Israel and Palestine and a brief history of the conflict. As well as this a women’s-only event called ‘My Fair Lady’ ran the following night and included pampering sessions, ice-cream indulgence, cake decorating, and ‘fear factoring’, amongst other activities.

The Islamic Society also held a football tournament in collaboration with the Islamic Society in the Dublin Institute of Technology. The tournament was held on the 31st October and involved sixteen teams competing on UCD’s Astroturf pitches.

To raise money during these events, collections were held in Tallaght Mosque after Jummah, the community congregational prayer.

The UCD Islamic Society President, Moosa Patel, said that “overall, [the week] was quite successful, considering it was during the mid-term exams. Our aim at the start was to try raise around €1000, so due to the grace of God, we accomplished just that. But in Islam, it’s not always about the results, but about the intention and the action that follows it.”

Other aims of the society during the Charity Week were to show Muslim students in a different light and increase the awareness of Islam, rather than “the stereotypes that you see and hear on TV. We want to show that it is part of our faith to give in charity and that we too work to benefit society.” He also felt that it gave members of the society and Muslim students – in both secondary schools and at a university level – the opportunity to get involved and help out, so that “they feel like they are contributing and making a difference.”

The Islamic Society hopes to follow up on the success of this year’s event with the rest of the semester’s activities. Their most recent event included a lecture organised by FOSIS on 5th November entitled “Dude, Where’s My Religion?” featuring a guest lecture by world-renowned Islamic preacher, Yusha Evans, which was the largest in a series of eleven held nationwide.

AN EXCLUSIVE MOVIE PREMIERE- OCCUPATION 101

OCCUPATION 101BismiLLAH hirRahmani Raheem…

Assalamualaikum warahmatuLLAH wabarakatuh…

Occupation 101 – A Tale of the Silent

 

‘The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, It is the illusion of knowledge’ – Stephen Hawking

* Winner of the “Golden Palm” Award (highest honor given by jury) and for “Best Editing” at the 2007 International Beverly Hills Film Festival
* Winner of the ‘Artivist Award’ for Best Feature Film under the category of Human Rights at the 2006 Artivist Film Festival in Hollywood.

* Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at 2006 East Lansing Film Festival.
* Winner of the John Michaels Memorial Award at the 2006 Big Muddy Film Festival.

A thought-provoking and powerful documentary film on the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unlike any other film ever produced on the conflict — ‘Occupation 101’ presents a comprehensive analysis of the facts and hidden truths surrounding the never ending controversy and dispels many of its long-perceived myths and misconceptions.

The film also details life under Israeli military rule, the role of the United States in the conflict, and the major obstacles that stand in the way of a lasting and viable peace. The roots of the conflict are explained through first-hand on-the-ground experiences from leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers whose voices have too often been suppressed in American media outlets.

The film covers a wide range of topics — which include — the first wave of Jewish immigration from Europe in the 1880’s, the 1920 tensions, the 1948 war, the 1967 war, the first Intifada of 1987, the Oslo Peace Process, Settlement expansion, the role of the United States Government, the second Intifada of 2000, the separation barrier and the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, as well as many heart wrenching testimonials from victims of this tragedy.
