THE FRIDAY SERMON

BENEFICIAL LESSONS DERIVED FROM THE HIJRAH

By Sh Ali Al-Hudhayfi (Imaam of Haram)

All praise is due to Allaah, the Subduer. I testify that there is nothing worthy of worship except Allaah and I testify that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.

Fellow Muslims! Fear Allaah as He should be feared so that you will prosper in this world and the Hereafter.

Fellow Muslims! The aspiration of lofty goals and the fulfilment of one's religious obligations require a great deal of time, effort and wealth. One’s very life may even be at stake during the course of fulfilling these great objectives in addition to the loss of friends, the gaining of enemies, the exposition of oneself to ridicule and the vulnerability of having few helpers and protectors. This in fact was exactly the situation of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam during his propagation of Islam.
Allaah sent Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam to mankind at the time when they were most in need of his message. The People of the Book (i.e. the Jews and Christians) had by then altered their books and the whole world was in the total darkness of polytheism and ignorance. It was at this time that Allaah chose to send His slave Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam to mankind.

The Almighty says that which translates as: "Say [O Muhammad], ‘O Mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of Allaah to you all, [from Him] to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no deity except Him; He gives life and causes death.’” (Al-A'raaf: 158).

The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam was sent at a time when people were worshipping unworthy objects such as trees, stones, the moon, angels, Jinns, the prophet 'Iesaa (or Jesus, peace be upon him) etc. He sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam found them supplicating to these deities, seeking assistance and refuge with them, beseeching them for benefits, slaughtering for them, vowing to them, and taking them as intermediaries to Allaah. He sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam also found them consulting fortune-tellers and sorcerers, spreading immorality, mistreating neighbours, severing bonds of kinship, earning money from dubious means, practicing interest-based transactions and usurping other people's properties. This was in addition to all the other well-known evils that were prevalent in that society. Their religion, customs and traditions were purely based on personal interests and material considerations. read more

DUA (PRAYER)
RABBY AWZINY AN ASHKURA NIMATAKALLATY ANAMTA ALAYYA WA ALAA WALIDAYYA WA AN A'AMALA SAULIHAN TARDHAUHU WA ASLIHLY FEE THURRIYYATY INNY TUBTU ILAYKA WA INNY MINAL MUSLIMEEN.

O Lord, grant me that I may be grateful to thee for the favours which Thou bestowed on me and my parents and that I may act in a manner which may earn thine pleasure and also reform my children; truly do I repent before Thee and I am truly a Muslim.

BENEFIT: Sayyadina Abu Bakr RA made this Dua excessively. Hence all his family members accepted Islam. It is also beneficial for disobedient children.

THE SMILE
A driver is stuck in a traffic jam on the motorway. Nothing is moving.

Suddenly a man knocks on the window. The driver rolls down his window and asks, "What's going on?"

"Some hijackers have kidnapped the President, his wife and two politicians. They're asking for a R310 million ransom.

Otherwise they're going to douse them with petrol and set them on fire. We're going from car to car, taking up a collection."

The driver asks, "How much is everyone giving, on average?"

"About a litre."
