Youth Club - Video

Short 2-minute video sequence showing the setup for a weekly youth club I help run.

A bit about the youth club: It is held every Sunday at Noor Ul Islam, a community centre in Leyton, East London. The youth club is run completely by volunteers for children aged 7-15 years. The sessions are split into two: 2-3:30pm for girls and 4-5:30pm for boys. We have been running it (in its current form) since April 2008. At the moment we get around 15 girls and 30 boys attending every week, alhamdulillah.

The All-Important Question

The all-important question: "Why?", as my soon-to-be-3-year-old niece inquires in persistence.

A question we could all do with asking a bit more often, but not too too often maa sha Allah.

Dark Chocolate

I have an insatiable craving for dark chocolate. My body absorbs the stuff. When it comes to milk chocolate, I eat a small piece, and feel guilty. With dark chocolate, in the other hand, I devour a 100g bar (daily) and feel no change. I am told it has nutritional benefits, or did I just make that up?

15, 15 Ways To Increase Your Earnings

Title: 15 Ways to Increase Your Earnings from the Quran and Sunnah
Author: Abu Ammaar Yasir Qadhi
Paperback: 128 pages
Publisher: Al-Hidaayah Publishing & Distribution (Aug 2002)
Language: English

I like a book that is simple to read, easy to understand and which leaves me with much to do (an action plan). This is such a book. Highly recommended for all those who can do with a bit more Barakah.

Btw, I read this book to get some ideas for a video script I am working on. Not because I am in any kind of financial difficulty, and all praise is due Allah, the Most Glorified and Exalted, Who provides without limit.
