Regarding This Selection

cropped-logo-rainbowbig.jpgI say and success in this is from Allah ta`ala, realize that our Sultan, may Allah prolong his rule ordered us to study and comprehend the Minhaj of scholars of our Jama`at and to disseminate these teachings to the people. Thus, this is a letter to the Jama`at of Shehu Uthman Dan Fuduye’ in America and to all those under confederation with us, our friends, families and the remainder of the Muslims. This letter comprises an abridgement of the rules of fasting Ramadan, its obligations, sunnan, its courtesies, (adab) and the merits of spiritual struggle (mujaahida). I have simply abridged what has been detailed in the books of our African Muslim ancestors, who were dedicated to reviving the Sunna and renewing the Deen of our beloved Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. My objective in this letter is the same objective of our Amir’l- Mu’mineen and Mujaddid, Shehu Uthman Dan Fuduye’, may Allah be merciful to him, when he said:
“I am simply a leader of his people who guides them to correct their affairs. I am simply inviting them to the religion of Allah, seeking by means of that His forgiveness, His mercy and desiring His pleasure. I am following the ways of my fathers and imitating the traces of my grandfathers who have passed. This is because our ancestors were the people of uprightness, guidance, learning, and struggle in the Way of Allah against the enemies of the religion in order to make it wide and to deliver it. I am doing this following the command of the Prophet and answering his call when he said, may Allah bless him and grant him peace: “Deliver the message from me even if is just a single verse.”
