As the East Coast braces for Hurricane Irene, all of us at AlMaghrib Institute (staff and instructors) are making dua that Allah (swt) protects all of you and your families.
We urge you to make dua as the Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wassalam) did at times of heavy winds:
اللهم إني أسألك خيرها ، وأعوذ بك من شرها
Allahuma innee as’aluka khayraha, wa a’oothu bika min sharrihaa
O Allah , I ask You for the good of it and seek refuge in You against its evil.
When the hurricane passes and the winds have calmed, we encourage you to go out and help the needy and join hands with your communities in the recovery efforts.
Stay safe, brothers and sisters, and take advantage of every moment to make lots of dua. You are in ours.
