Today is a moment dedicated to turning inward, to delve into the depths of your being—a reflection that cannot be postponed any longer.

In the evolving landscape of our times, an urgency prevails like never before—an urgent need to deepen our spiritual connection. Fortunately, the path to this connection has never been more accessible.

Yet, within this accessibility, the call for spiritual enrichment has never been more vital. As we navigate life’s currents, the efforts we invest today aren’t solely for our immediate benefit but are seeds for a legacy resonating through future generations. No pressure!

Despite having more than just ourselves to consider, there’s no need to feel overwhelmed. Each seeker charts a distinct course—a personal journey that requires no comparisons. Our individual achievements are unique. What brought us to this moment may not be sufficient for the road ahead. It’s time to embrace a mindset of Continuous Spiritual Development (CSD), mirroring the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) in the professional realm.

Our world is undergoing a profound shift, turning everything we know upside down. Amidst this upheaval, one unchanging reality remains stark—our urgent need to connect with the Qur’an.

In the realm of spirituality, the connection with the Qur’an is paramount—an undeniable reality. As born Muslims, we are bestowed with the profound privilege of embracing Islam from the start. Let’s not squander this divine opportunity.

Born into Islam, we are inherently fortunate. The chance to deepen our connection with the Qur’an is a unique blessing, and now, in this sacred month of Ramadhan, is the opportune time to seize it.

The question now is, how will you embark on this spiritual journey? Remember, the efforts you make today will resonate within you and echo through the corridors of time, impacting the generations that follow.

Today is a moment to focus on what’s inside of you, a time for profound thought that can’t be delayed any longer. This is the time. This is the chance. Let’s make a spiritual difference this Ramadhan.

A Review from a Mother of Four

I have always desired to study Arabic simply because I wanted to understand what I was praying whilst reciting the Holy Qur’an and my daily du’as. I first started learning Arabic many years ago by attending a weekly course. I soon realised that this wasn’t working for me and I eventually gave up.  At one point I even tried to learn by myself without a teacher, but again, I realised that this was just not feasible. In August this year I discovered the Shine Online Arabic course, after a friend recommended it to me. Since then, I have not looked back! The Shine Online course is absolutely perfect for me. Even though I have more personal responsibilities now than when I did when I first started to learn Arabic, I have managed to keep up with my work and Alhumdulillah I have made significant progress. This is due to the way the course has been structured. I pick a time during my day which suits me, to complete my work, without the pressure of having to attend classes away from home. The Friday Live sessions perfectly compliment and consolidate the lessons I have covered during the week. The daily video lessons are clear and concise and explain the text book very well, and if there’s still something I have difficulty understanding, or if I have any further questions, then I know my tutor is only a text message away. The assignment-based assessments also ensure that I know which chapters I need to brush up on, without the stress of timed examinations. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is passionate about learning Arabic, but is worried that their daily responsibilities might hold them back. As a mother of four young children and multiple household responsibilities, I can definitely say this course fits perfectly into my busy schedule, and gives me the opportunity to pursue something I have always been passionate about. JazakAllah to everyone at Shine for providing such a fantastic and easy gateway to the wonderful world of Arabic.   Aisha Harif
