    CONNECTIONS: FREEDOM, JUSTICE & EQUALITY- IMAM SIDDEEQ JIHAD (REPLAY)

    in Islam

    Imam W. Deen Mohammed’s Endorsing Comments Regarding:


    The Language of Revelation: Classical Arabic Language Instruction and Exercises with Qur’aan CommentaryFor Beginners & Non-Beginners     By Siddeeq Jihad


     I want to bring to our attention an achievement, a publication that has been produced mainly for our community but is for anybody who wants some help from the material that has been put into this publication.  The book is called The Language of Revelation. (Lughatut-tan-zeel) It is by a brother that I have known to be dedicated and devoted to the study of Qur’aanic Arabic and the teaching of that subject to our students and to grown-ups as well. And that is brother Siddeeq Jihad. I think that most of us know him.


    I would highly recommend this book for you all, who are studying (grown-ups) but also for our youngsters who are studying separate organized Qur’aanic Studies classes and who are also studying in our school system.   I highly recommend this book.   Qur’aanic Arabic with lessons and studies to improve your ability to read the Qur’aan and get more understanding and to qualify yourself, ... from you who are interested in Qur’aanic Arabic, we’re going to get our next generation of teachers, Imams and leaders.   I’m grateful to Allah for students and scholars like our brother, Siddeeq Jihad. Congratulations, my brother!   (1st Sun., 7-6-08  Markham, Illinois)  www.siddeeqjihad.com    siddeeq@msn.com

    "Relationship Tuesday" Loose the Baggage moving on with your life PT3

    in Relationships

    No matter the size of the baggage, we all have it and it will affect the way we are in new relationships. Dating and relationships can be frustrating and, often, downright painful. What single hasn't dreamt of a fairy dating coach swooping in to help her let go of baggage and find the happy, healthy relationship she craves?


    Practice releasing regrets: When a relationship ends, it’s tempting to dwell on what you did wrong or what you could have done differently. This might seem productive—like you can somehow change things by rehashing it. You can’t. All dwelling does is cause you to suffer. When you start revisiting the past in your head, pull yourself into the moment. Focus on the good things in your current situation: the friends who are there for you and the lessons you’ve learned that will help you with future relationships.


    Let yourself feel: Losing a relationship can feel like a mini-death, complete with a grieving process. First, you’re shocked and in denial. You don’t believe it’s over and you hold out hope. Next, you feel hurt and guilty. You should have done things differently. If you did you wouldn’t be in this pain. Then, you feel angry and maybe even start bargaining. It would be different if you gave it a second go. You wouldn’t be so insecure, defensive, or demanding.  Then you might feel depressed and lonely as it hits you how much you’ve lost.
