Taking a break. We’ll be back insha’Allah.


Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh,

The last ten nights are here, and as the doors of Allah’s mercy and forgiveness are wide open, we’re preparing to take a break from our regular posting activities at IGIC.

Our advice to everyone is to do the same – to spend time away from the internet, and to give as much time as possible to the worship of Allah. Make i’tikaaf if possible, for all ten nights or as many as you can. Pour your heart and soul into the coming days, into your du’aa and prayer and hope in Allah.

The last ten nights are here, and Laylat al-Qadr could be any night, including tonight. Allah has blessed us all with this amazing chance – so take the keys of opportunity that lay directly before you, and search hard for Allah’s pleasure and reward.


If you’re debating the issue of hijab in your head, if you want to start wearing  a scarf or jilbab or niqab and fear is holding you back – if you want to take that “leap” this Ramadan – don’t hesitate any longer. Raise your hands up in du’aa, and know that Allah answers the call of the caller when he calls out to Him.

Here are a few pieces from the site you might have missed; we hope and pray that they’ll be of help to you:

And She Leaps – and so can you!

And finally, a must-see video on Laylat al-Qadr, what it is, and why we should all be searching for it (“it shakes the mind”):


Jazakum Allahu khayran to everyone who visited this site during Ramadan, everyone who read our posts and shared them with others, everyone who took just a minute or two to make du’aa for us. We may not get the chance to say it often, but after seeking the pleasure of Allah, our readers (you guys!) are the biggest motivation for this site. Your support and your du’aa, your comments and your feedback, mean more to us than you can know. Please continue to make du’aa for us, and visit us again after Ramadan when we’ll be back to posting insha’Allah.

May Allah ta’ala bless the remainder of your time and ours in this precious month, grant us the reward of Laylat al-Qadr, and allow us to witness Ramadan for many years to come. Ameen.
