The Muhammadi Trust

Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth (24:35), Whereever you turn there is the face of Allah (2:115) , He created for you mates from among yourselves that ye may dwell in tranquillity with them and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect. (30:21), To Allah We belong and to Him is our return. (2:156),Which the of your Lord’s blessings do you both deny? (53:53),Say: “Journey in the land and observe the fate of those who came before – most have not been in Unity” (30:42),Allah originates creation then restores it and then to Him you shall be returned. (30:11),And on earth there are signs for those who are certain in faith and in yourselves do you not then see? (51:20-21),I created jinn and mankind only to worship Me. (51:56),To God belong the East and the West; wherever you turn there is the Face of God; God is All-embracing All-knowing. (2:115),All that they do is noted in (their) Books (of Deeds): Every matter small and great is on record.(54-52-53)

Our Mission

The Muhammadi Trust is a charitable endowment that promotes Islamic spirituality and Self-Knowledge based on Prophetic traditions.

It publishes books, holds seminars and encourages contributions from established scholars that prioritise the universal and transformative nature of the Prophetic message; that in understanding the true nature of our own selves through outer practice and inner reflection, we learn to fulfil our real purpose in creation.

I did not create jinn and humans except to worship Me. (Quran 51:56)

He who knows himself knows his Lord – Prophet Muhammed (saw)

How could I worship Him whom I do not know – Imam Ali (as)

The divine message of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was conveyed through the revelation of the holy Quran, his traditions, his perfect character and conduct, and the continuation of this transmission through the Ahlul Bayt (as).


”If the heart is sound, then the whole body is sound; if the heart is sick, then the whole body is sick” – Prophet Muhammad (from The Prophetic Traditions in Islam)

Al-Sadiq (as) said, “Surely the heart is constantly murmuring in the recess of the body, demanding the Truth; if the Truth reaches it, then it finds ease and rest.”  (from The Prophetic Traditions in Islam)

In a time of major global upheaval and uncertainty, it is our sincere and humble aim, God willing, to promote these teachings of Islam that bring with them the pathway to the perfect balance of inner light and tranquillity with outer practices and courtesies.

Our History

The Muhammadi Trust has been in existence for more than four decades. During the early seventies, the number of Islamic institutions in the West were very few, as was Islamic literature in the English language. With migration from the subcontinent and other parts of the world, creating a growing Muslim population within the UK, there was an evident need for establishments that would serve the community at all levels.

Through inspiration from the late Raja of Mahmudabad, the then Director of the Islamic Centre in Regents Park (which was later built into the present day Regents Park Mosque) and the stewardship of the late Cmdr Qasim Husain as well as from the participation of energetic members of the community, the Muhammadi Trust of Great Britain and Northern Ireland was established.

The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said, “Truly my progeny is like the ark of Noah floating amongst you – whoever embarks thereon
is saved.”

Imam Ali (a.s.)

Supplications

The Psalms of Islam (Sahifa-e-Sajjadia)

A revered collection of supplications and prayers attributed to Imam Ali ibn Husayn Zayn al-Abidin, the fourth Imam of the Ahl-ul-Bayt. The Sahifa-e-Sajjadiya comprises over 50 supplications with penetrating insights into the psychology of the soul, acute observations of the nature of life in this world, and meditation upon the divine qualities and attributes. In addition, the book contains moral and ethical teachings -the ideal inner and outer courtesy or adab of the Muslim in daily life, with regards to one's self, parents, children, friends and enemies -that are all the more compelling in being presented in the context of a dynamic relationship between the soul and its Creator.

Dua of the day from Sahifa Kamila

Thursday

 
In the Name of God, the All-merciful, the All-compassionate
 

1- Praise belongs to God, who has taken away the shadowy night by His power and brought the sight-giving day through His mercy. He has clothed me in its brightness and given me its favour.

2- O God, just as Thou hast spared me for this day, so also spare me for its likes, bless the prophet Muhammad and his Household, torment me not in it and in other nights and days by allowing me to commit unlawful acts and to clothe myself in sins; provide me with its good, the good of all within it, and the good of everything after it; and turn away from me its evil, the evil of all within it, and the evil of everything after it!

3- O God, by the protective compact of Islam, I seek mediation with Thee! By the inviolability of the Qur'an, I rely upon Thee! By Muhammad the chosen (God bless him and his Household) I seek intercession with Thee! So recognize my protective compact by which I hope my need will be granted, O Most Merciful of the merciful!

4- O God, decree for me on Thursday five things which none embraces but Thy generosity and none supports but Thy favours: health through which I may have the strength to obey Thee, worship by which I may deserve Thy plentiful reward, plenty in my state through lawful provision, and that Thou makest me secure in the places of fear through Thy security, and placest me in Thy fortress against the striking of worries and sorrows! Bless Muhammad and his Household, and make my seeking his mediation as an intercessor give profit on the Day of Resurrection! Surely Thou art the Most Merciful of the merciful!
