Tayybah Times, The Last Breath »

[9 Mar 2011 | No Comment | 1,165 views]

For The Last Breath seminar, the one most important thing that blew my mind appeared almost right at the beginning. It was the Checklist on Death. At first glance, the questions seemed easy enough to answer. However, as Shaykh Waleed went over the questions with us, explaining them and adding the necessary understanding of its importance, I was amazed at how heavy each question began to weigh in my mind. This questionnaire forced me to seriously analyze my relationship and experience with this world and the kind of experience I …

In my life I have attended many Islamic gatherings to get knowledge, but I can’t compare any of the gatherings with AlMaghrib seminars. The Last Breath: Fiqh of Worship III (Death & Inheritance) was my second seminar with AlMaghrib. This is one of the seminars that helped me to take my religion more seriously than ever before. Now I know more about death and my responsibilities in the society and in my family as an individual.  One of the memorable parts in this seminar was the questionnaire form that contains many …

To Die or Not to Die? That is the Question

The class is called the Last Breath
It’s all about the fiqh of death
It explains about the journey of the soul
Will you have an EZ Pass or pay the toll
Death occurs when the soul leaves the body eternally
The soul faces its destiny with uncertainty
Be good and follow the divine
So when you die we will see a good sign
Washing the body is done in a certain way
In which one must not delay
Shrouding each gender
Has a different number
Women in 5 men in three
Musk is the smell of a shaheed’s blood
Who was just a …

The Last Breath was an intense class. It gave me insight on what the concept of death is. Sitting there, in my seat, chills ran through my body. I imagined myself six feet under, myself and my deeds. It made me realize that death will reach us all one day.  The side stories that were shared by the instructor were to be learned from and held precious.
Just being there with a bunch of other people that had the same view that you have was enough to make me remain steadfast, …

Assalamu Alaykum brothers and sisters,
My name is Tania Fowler and I am a revert into Islam. As a revert my goal is to learn as much as I can about my deen. Before I attended the Last Breath class I didn’t know what to expect but I knew I was very eager to learn. When I entered the classroom I saw Sheikh Waleed Abdulhakeem, I heard very good stories about him from my fellow sisters. I heard he was a very good teacher and he always seemed to have his students’ …

Testimonial: In the Eyes of a Traveler

Bismillah, the first phrase that escaped my lips when I entered the Iron Jungle along with my brother and sister. From the time we crossed the GW Bridge into New York City, the bustle of city life did not dim down until we entered the amphi-theater where my dear Tayybah volunteers were busy making sure everything was in check. There was Omar testing the microphone before handing it to the Ameer. I gave Omar a big hug, it had been a while since I saw him last. Taking our seats …

Poem & Du’aa: Rethinking Death

Death-
And as I sit there learning how-
How to detect if a person is actually dead
How to comfort the dying person
How to wash their body
How to bury them
How to pray on them
How to comfort the grieving family
How to comfort myself
I rethink- death
How inevitable it is
How unreal but real it is
It didn’t hit me until I actually imagined holding someone from my family in my hand- dead
Until I actually pictured myself laying still, no pulse, motionless
And then I started breathing- heavily
There would be no turning back- no more second chances
Am I ready? …

Divorced People: Why Love is Blind

By Abdur-Rehman
A single-page article cannot address the issue of divorced people or those who have lost their loved ones after they got married. A single page paper cannot truly analyze the reason of why love is really blind in some cases which end up in marriage. But what I would like to do is just give my reflections of why things such as divorces happen and also why certain people who are not meant for each other do end up getting married. In some cases, you find them staying together …
