About Nur az-Zahra’
Nur Az-Zahra’ is a da’wah group that comprises of female Singaporean students who had the opportunity to study and learn under the scholars and teachers from the blessed land of Tareem, Hadramawt, Yemen.
Our members are mainly graduates from the prestigious Dar Az-Zahra’, female participants of Dowra (an intensive summer course annually organised by Darul Mustafa and Dar Az-Zahra’) and also not forgetting sisters who have the vigour and zeal to serve Islam.
Among the main objectives of this group is to share with the community the richness of our Islamic intellectual heritage, and that is by reviving the culture of learning traditional Islam in halaqahs.
Apart from that, it is also hoped that our programs of spiritual emphasis (ie; the recitation of maulid, hadrah basaudan, majlis tausiyah and knowledge of hubabah and ustazahs) would aid to enhance and deepen further our love and connection towards the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him and may it be fully embedded in our hearts.
‘Nur Az-Zahra‘ was named by the eminent scholar and seeker to Allah, Habib ‘Umar Bin Hafidz, the founder and principal of Darul Mustafa (the mens’ wing of Dar Az-Zahra‘). ‘Nur‘ is the arabic word for ‘light’ whereas ‘Az-Zahra‘ was taken from the name of the youngest and most beloved daughter of Rasulullah (peace be upon him), Sayyidatina Fatimah Az-Zahra‘ (May Allah be pleased with her).
We make du’a to Allah swt that He will illuminate our hearts and limbs with His Light and honor us with the tawfiq to emulate Sayyidatina Fatimah Az-Zahra‘, the queen of Jannah, in our character, speech, and actions, aameen.
Our mission is to serve the Muslimah community with food for souls through organizing Islamic events that follows the methodology of traditional Islamic teachings like how it has been practiced by the Habaibs in Tareem, Hadramout, Yemen.
Our vision is to enhance the love for Allah ﷻ and Rasulullah ﷺ , to instill the love for the majalis ilm and the ‘ulama and to also uplift our spiritual state, focusing on the muslimah in Singapore.
