Picture of the Day: 17.07.14 - Exactly What You Need

This week I had to take Little Lady to meet her new teacher after work and ended up running late to prepare iftar.  I rushed home to realise that I had forgot to pick up some dates.  I felt bad because mum-in-law struggles with fasting, but she still fasts and always opens her fasts with a date.

I was too tired to go out again, so just got on with preparing the rest of the food.  Just before iftar time, someone knocked on the door asked them how they were and handed them two plates of food:

Plaited chicken bread, fruit salad, some very sweet melon and two dates - one for me and one for mum-in-law.

I'm not sure who the person was who dropped off the food, but the boys recognised him as a friend of their dads from the masjid.  Alhamdulillah, Allah (SWT) sent him at just the right time with exactly what we needed.

"And whosoever is conscious of Allah, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Indeed Allah has sent a measure for all things." ~ Quran: 65/2-3

    Salaam, and hey, great work keep it up, although i havent had a chance to read it all. As Ramadan is coming up i thought i'd share an interesting project you may wish to share especially in in London

    Ramadan Tent Project

    Is a project where an Open Iftar takes place every Ramadan. The Ramadan Tent Project invites the public at large,
    Muslims and non-Muslims, to break fast together at dusk during the holy month of Ramadan each year. Creating a Ramadan atmosphere in the heart of London, sharing meals, raising awareness about Islam, connecting neighbours and ensuring charitable endeavours continue. The Ramadan Tent Project delivers a platform that fulfils both the objectives of catering for people in need and promoting greater cross-community cohesion and understanding.

    The Maghrib prayer is also done outdoors with azaan which creates a very peaceful and Ramadan like atmosphere outdoors for all attending Muslim and non Muslim.

    Its free and open to the public. I would highly recommend you come down with your family. Location is Central London outside SOAS Uni.

    More info here:

    please spread the word to your readers.

    Thanks & Jazakallah
