Why this Course
New Muslims face significant challenges. One of these challenges is that despite an abundance of material in books and on the internet, information is of varying quality and accuracy, and is often spread across many places. This information is often mixed with content which is inappropriate, too detailed, or confusing for a new Muslim. There is also a lack of simple, structured material from which a new Muslim can learn that which they really need to know in the first few days and weeks. Welcome to Islam is a unique programme for new Muslims, dealing with the first few weeks of a person’s life as a new Muslim. We intend to cover only the things that it is essential for a new Muslim to know, in a way that is easily accessible to people who are new to Islam.
Meeting every Friday at Kalemah Islamic Centre, we will begin by taking new Muslim brothers to a mosque in which the sermon is delivered in English. During this time, new Muslim sisters will congregate at the centre. Food will then be provided (outside of Ramadan), for both brothers and sisters, in separate areas. We will then begin the class (sisters will be in a separate room with video/audio link and an assistant teacher). The course is based on short modules (1-2 per week) intended to give the new Muslim the essential tools that he/she needs to get started in their new religion. This will include matters of belief, common problems and how to solve them, the prayer, Islamic terminology, and some of the basic commands and prohibitions of Islam. The aim is that new Muslims will be able, after completing the course, to integrate with existing classes and facilities for Muslims, and be comfortable and confident in their new life. The course will conclude in time for th e ‘Asr prayer, and we will pray together before leaving. In the month of Ramadan the New Muslims will have Iftar together after the course at Kalemah.

Friday Khutbah: Good and bad is sent to test the believer
When one faces illness and health problems with patience and good conduct, it could be a reason to raise their status in the hereafter, Muslims will be told on Friday.
In this life, Allah tests people with many types of advantages and disadvantages, as the Quranic verse says: “And We try you with evil and with good, for ordeal. And unto Us ye will be returned.”
A true believer is one who maintains strong faith and patience during difficult and good times.
And the greater the crises a person is tested with, the greater is their reward and benefit by Allah.
A reason for testing people with such ordeals is because Allah wants to give them a higher status that they have not achieved with their knowledge and deeds, so they are challenged with crises in order to achieve that great status, the sermon continues.
“Islam has stresses on a sick one to be patient, and promised him forgiveness from sins.”
A hadith by Prophet Mohammed says: “No calamity befalls a Muslim but that Allah expiates some of his sins because of it, even though it were the prick he receives from a thorn.”
Moreover, Islam has entitled the diseased to rights and duties by society members, such as visiting them.
As another hadith says: “The rights of one Muslim over another are five: returning the greeting of salaam, visiting the sick, attending funerals, accepting invitations, and saying yarhamuk Allah (may Allah have mercy on you) to one who sneezes.”
