Scholarship Students in Saudi Arabia Should Reflect

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Ever-Merciful…

As a recipient of a Saudi government scholarship to study at Umm al-Qura University, I thank Allaah and ask Him to forgive me and my brothers and sisters who study here on full scholarships for not realizing how many blessings from Allaah we have overlooked and/or not properly thanked Him for.

Have we thanked Allaah for granting us years of peaceful and secure living in a land of Towheed and Sunnah? Some Muslims are living in fear for their lives and property right now. Some live in countries that do not allow them to practice Islaam. Some live in countries that openly promote polytheism and acts of blasphemy. By Allaah, we are spoiled in this land. By Allaah, we have not shown enough gratitude for our blessings!

Have we thanked Allaah for the ability to pray at the two greatest masjids in the world? Muslims around the world save for years to make one trip. Many of them never make it. Many of them beg Allaah in the depths of the nights to make one prayer at one of the two sacred Harams one day. By Allaah, we are spoiled and ungrateful.

Have we thanked Allaah for the ability to visit and study from a number of today’s greatest scholars? Our brothers in Islaam dream of the chance to meet a scholar one day. Muslims huddle together secretly Continue reading

Official List of Student Visas to be Issued for Madeenah 1434-1435

This PDF includes the official published list of students as found on the university’s website. (here) We have added some advice for students at the end of the document.

NOTE: It seems that this list is not a new list of accepted students, but rather a list of previously accepted students whose entry (or re-entry) visas had expired, and they needed to have their visas re-issued. We apologize for any inconvenience we caused by announcing it as a list of accepted students initially.

We would also like to make available this brief 5-page Official Guide to Getting Started for this academic year, also published by the university.

We ask Allaah to bless the accepted students, guide them to beneficial knowledge at the feet of the scholars of Islam, and to keep them far away from those who would divert them from the path of beneficial knowledge and righteous actions!
