The Hijri Calender?
Did you know the Islamic calender is known as the hijri calender? This is because the calender began from the time our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wassalam migrated from Makkah to Madeenah. So we know now that it has been 1441 years since our beloved Nabi Sallallahu alayhi wassalam left his beloved city Makkah and settled in Madeenah.
The Month Of Muharram
Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calender. It Contains a very virtuous day known as Ashura, which is on the 10th of Muharram.
Tomorrow inshaallah we will learn a did you know lesson about the 10th of Muharram. And some virtues about this day.
Learn the names of the following 10 companions who were promised Jannah. They are known as the Asharah Mubasshrah.

Hijrah to Madeenah
As the Muslims grew in number the leaders of makkah gathered and decided the only way to stop Islam spreading was to Kill Rasulullah ﷺ. Rasulullah ﷺ was told by Sayyidina Jibraeel Alayhi Salam of the enemies plans. He left for Madeenah that very night.
Rasulullah ﷺ asked Sayyidina Ali radhiallahu anhu to sleep in his bed and also asked him to return the goods of the people he kept with him. Thereafter he quietly left the house, not seen by anyone. With Sayyidina Aboo Bakr radhiallahu anhu he made his way towards Madeenah. As his enemies looked everywhere for him he stayed in the cave of Thoor for three days and nights.
When the leaders of Makkah found Sayyidina Ali radhiallahu anhu in Rasulullah ﷺ bed the next morning they were very angry. They offered a hundred camels as a reward to capture Rasulullah ﷺ, but rasulullah ﷺ and Sayyidina Aboo Bakr radhiallahu anhu had reached Madeenah Safely.
Read through all the duas you have memorised so far and any duas you don’t know learn them properly. Also make a plan to read them when you’re supposed to. The benefits will be:
1) Reward for following a sunnah
2) Engaging in the rememberance of Allah for large parts of the day
3) You won’t forget your duas so no need to ever revise them!

📝 To do
From today daily read Astaghfirullah 100 times before going to bed!
There are different forms of istighfar. Here are 3 you can learn and read.
أسْتَغْفِرُ اللهَ مِنْ کُلِّ ذَنْبٍ، وَأتُوبُ إلَيهِ
أسْتَغْفِرُ اللهَ الَّذِي لاَ إلَهَ إلاَّ هُوَ، الحَيُّ القَيُّومُ، وَأتُوبُ إلَيهِ
The Prophet sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam said,
“Whoever holds fast to istighfār, Allāh will create for him an exit from every difficulty and freedom from every sorrow and provide him from where he had not even imagined.” (Abū Dāwūd)
