THE FRIDAY SERMON
A PAUSE WITH THE MEANING OF ‘BARAKAH’

By Sh Saleh bin Muhammad Al-Talib - 23 Muharram 1434

Praise be to Allah! Blessed be He in His divine essence, He Who blessed whom He wills among His creatures! Praise be to Allah, the Supreme and the Most Generous. No human being can give Him His due in full. No creature is capable of disengaging itself from the bonds of His service; nor can any human being exist independently of His generosity and bountiful gifts. He is the First in the whole existence and to Him alone all creatures stand upright in performance of worship rituals and lie in prostration. His existence (?) is unequalled by any form of being and His generosity is peerless. His might takes those who shy away from His message unawares, either in their waking time or during their sleep.

I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, with no rival partner to Him and that Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) is His servant and Messenger. O Allah! Send Your Salat (Graces, Honors, and Mercy) and Peace on your servant and Messenger Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), his family, his Companions, the tab'în (the contemporaries of the Companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) after his death), and all those who righteously follow them till the Day of Judgment!

O people!

My recommendation, to myself then to you, is to adhere to taqwa (fear of Allah). It is our resort in time of hardships, our source of assistance in ordeals, the inspiration of the soul and its quietude, the generator of patience and tranquility, the stimulator of strength and firm conviction, the tool of ascension to heaven to seek sublimity, the guarantee of guidance in moments of perilous predicaments, and the booster of morale in time of stressful affliction: ?O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allâh and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth.? [70]. ?He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allâh and His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), he has indeed achieved a great achievement (i.e. he will be saved from the Hell-fire and will be admitted to Paradise).?

DUA (PRAYER)
SEEKING GOODNESS IN THIS WORLD AND HEREAFTER

It is reported by Sayyadina Anas RA that the Messenger of Allah visited a sick man who had become faint like a faint hearted man, so the Messenger of Allah said did you use to supplicate for something, or ask Him it? He said: Yes. I used to say O' my 'ilãh whatever you were going to punish me with in the Hereafter, then hurry it for me in this worldly life, so the Messenger of Allah said: Subhana 'allãhi you cannot bear that, or you are not able of that. Would not you say:

'Allãhumma 'ãtinã fd-dunyã hasanatan wa fil 'ãkhirati hasanatan wa qinã `athãban-nari

Our Lord! Bring us Good in this world and Good in the Hereafter, and save us from the torment of the Fire.

THE SMILE
One day a man was going to market with his son and his donkey. They met a couple on the way. "Why walk when you have a donkey to ride?" called out the husband, "seat the boy on the donkey." "I would like that," said the boy, "help me up father." And the father did that willingly.

Soon they met another couple. "How shameful of you!" cried the woman, "let your father ride, won't he be tired?" So, the boy got down and the father rode the donkey. Again they marched on.

"Poor boy", said the next person they met, "why should the lazy father ride while his son is walking?" So, the boy got onto the donkey too, with his father. As they went on, they met some travelers. "How cruel of them!" They are up to kill the poor donkey." cried one of the travelers.

Hearing this, the father and the son got down. Now they decided to carry the donkey on their shoulders. As they did so, the travelers broke into laughter. The laughter frightened the donkey. It broke free and galloped away.
