Weekly Reminder


Falcon Weekly Reminder

May 21 - May 25

UAF Mission

The mission of the Universal Academy of Florida is to teach our students the principles and practices of Islam and prepare them for academic success and good citizenship.


Abu Hurayrah said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) would give glad tidings to his companions on the arrival of Ramadan by saying: 

 “There has come to you Ramadan, a blessed month which Allah has obligated on you to fast. In it the gates of heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed, and the devils are chained up. In it there is a night that is better than a thousand months. Whoever is deprived of its goodness is indeed deprived.” Narrated by Ahmad, 9213 al-Nasa’i, 2106.

 Ibn Rajab said, "Some scholars mentioned that this hadith is the basis of how people should greet one another with the arrival of the month of Ramadan.”

 How can a believer be greeted and not find happiness with knowing the doors of paradise are open?

 How can a sinner not find happiness in knowing the doors of hellfire are closed?

 How can an intelligent person not find happiness in the fact that the devils are chained?

 How can this time be even equal to another time?"


      General Reminders
