I normally share bits of my class notes in my 'Notes' section from different classes I attend but, I really couldn't help but to make a special posting of these notes from my class "Ten Weeks of Transformation" with Ustadha(Teacher) Farheen Farooq from Salihah Central. An all women certified Islamic studies program, which by the way has a very minimal cost and this particular class is FREE. Can't get any better then that. Can't it?
I think these simple tips of the sunnah can really helps us take advantage of the blessings from Allah SWT, which will benefit us in this life and hereafter. InshaAllah.
