Message from Masjid Umar/YMA Management Committee

Following the resignation of Maulana Jamal as Senior Imam and YMA Headteacher, the Committee together with the immense support of our community have approached and been liaising with our Honourable Maulana Shoaib Desai Sahib to consider returning to this organisation that he painstaking established many years ago. The Committee has made numerous requests to Maulana Shoeb Desai in the sincere hope that he will accept and once again take over as head of Masjid Umar/YMA.

Our prayers have been accepted and Alhamdulillah we are delighted to announce to the whole community that although Maulana Sahib had already given his commitment to another Masjid and community away from Sheffield, he has finally accepted our requests & pleas to return to Masjid Umar/YMA.

Maulana Shoeb Sahib will therefore once again take the position of Senior Imam and Principal of YMA with immediate effect.
Finally, we pray to Allah Almighty to make his fresh leadership appointment at Masjid Umar/YMA a source of mercy and blessings for the entire community of Sheffield and may Allah grant Maulana Shoeb Sahib the best of abilities to lead our community in a manner which will be a means of Allah’s pleasure. Ameen

A believer possesses seven tools which give him protection from all harms and provides peace of mind and contentment of the heart should he be afflicted. The seven tools are mentioned below:

1. Tawbah and Istighfār (Repentance and Seeking Forgiveness) – Calamities result from our disobedience to Allāh (S). As a result of sincere repentance and seeking forgiveness from Allāh (S), not only will one’s sins be forgiven, but one will also be granted safety from the calamities resulting from sins. Nabī صلى الله عليه و سلم has mentioned,

“Whoever holds fast to istighfār, Allāh creates a way out for him from every difficulty, grants him relief from every worry and provides for him from sources he does not even imagine.” (Abū Dāwūd)

2. Taqwā (Obedience to Allāh (S)) – After repenting from all sins, one needs to remain steadfast by obeying Allāh (S) in all matters. Allāh (S) mentions, “Whoever refrains from disobeying Allāh, He (Allāh) brings forth a way out for him and provides for him from where he does not even imagine.” (65:2-3)

3. Du‘ā (Supplication) –Du‘ā is such a powerful weapon that not only does it remove existing calamities, it also prevents future difficulties. Nabī صلى الله عليه و سلم has mentioned in a Ḥadīth,

“Indeed, du‘ā benefits (a person) with regards to what has already befallen and with regards to what has not yet befallen. So hold fast, O servants of Allāh, to du‘ā.” (At-Tirmidhī)

4. Ṣadaqah (Charity) – Ṣadaqah is also an effective method of removing existing calamities and preventing future difficulties. Nabī صلى الله عليه و سلم has mentioned,

“Treat your sick through ṣadaqah.” (Aṭ-Ṭabarānī)

“Hasten in giving ṣadaqah, for tribulations cannot get past ṣadaqah. (Aṭ-Ṭabarānī)”

5. Ṣabr (Patience) – Exercising patience attracts the Help of Allāh (S), which consequently leads to the uplifting of difficulties. Allāh (S) says, “Surely Allah is with those who are patient.” (2:153)

6. Ṣalāh – Like ṣabr, ṣalāh is also a tool through which a person is able to acquire the Help of Allāh (S). Allāh (S) says, “Acquire (the Help of Allāh (S)) through patience and ṣalāh.” (2:45)

7. Dhikr (Remembrance of Allāh (S)) – The remembrance of Allāh (S) attracts His Attention. As a result, His Help and Mercy will descend in abundance. Allāh (S) says in a Al-Ḥadīthul-Qudsī, “I am with my servant whenever he remembers Me and his lips move with My remembrance. (Al-Bukhārī)

May Allah (S) grant us protection from all calamities and enable us to utilise this time in His Remembrance and Obedience. Ameen.
