May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)


By Sheikh Salah Al-Bedair - 26 Shaban 1434

His Eminence Sheikh Salah Al-Bedair, may Allah preserve him, delivered the Friday sermon entitled, “Ease of Worship in Ramadan”, in which he talked about the importance of increasing acts of worship and obedience and drawing closer to Allah in the month of Ramadan. In the opening of his sermon, Sheikh Al-Budair highlighted the fact that Allah has favoured this religion with simple rules for performing hajj and other acts of worship.

Praise be to Allah. Praise be to Allah, Who has the soundest judgement and Who has set forth what is lawful and what is unlawful. I praise Him for granting us knowledge and proper understanding of His religion, and for all the things that He has taught us. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone, Who has no partners, and I bear witness that our Prophet and master, Muhammad, is His servant and Messenger. May Allah bestow His bountiful and constant peace and blessings upon him and upon all his Household and Companions till the Day of Judgment.

O Muslims!
Fear Allah, for the fear of Allah is the source of all blessings, and knowledge wards off chaos and destruction.

"O you who believe! Fear Allah (by doing all that He has ordered and by abstaining from all that He has forbidden) as He should be feared. [Obey Him, be thankful to Him, and remember Him always], and die not except in a state of Islam (as Muslims) with complete submission to Allah." (Al-Imran: 102) read more

DUA (Prayer)

It is reported of 'Ali bin 'Abi Tãlib that someone who was indebted came to him and said: I am unable to pay my debt so help me. He said: Shall I not teach you a few words the Messenger of Allah taught me, if you had the like of a mountain (Seerin) of debt Allah would fulfill it on your behalf? Say:

'Allãhumma kfinee bihalãlika `an harãmika, wa 'aghninee bifadhlika `amman siwãka'

O' my 'ilãh make me with what You have made lawful needless of what You have made unlawful, and make me with your benevolence independent of all others.

Attributes of God Almighty – Part 2 - Sh Umar Farooq and Sh Hamza Yusuf

The subject of God Almighty is the most noble of all subjects. This should be the ultimate concern of all human beings. This series of discussions attempts to understand God The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful, according to the Islamic Doctrine.

Shaikh Umar Farooq Abdullah and Shaikh Hamza Yusuf, in their introduction to this incredible series, emphasised that the essence of knowledge is in the discovery of our Creator, Lord of all. Moreover, the importance of making our knowledge meaningful was the supreme legacy of Islamic civilisation and it remains our task today. They explained further that every religion is founded upon direct experience of Allah Almighty.

In this part, Sh Hamza discussed the Isra and the Me’raj experiences of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu`Alayhi Wa Sallam; the inner and outer Hijrah.

Many believe this journey was merely a physical experience. However, Muhammad Sallallahu`Alayhi Wa Sallam negated this perception when he said, “The real Muhaajir is the one who makes Hijrah from what Allah has prohibited him from,” and Allah has prohibited us from everything other than Himself. In this journey Almighty Allah opened the Ghaib or Unseen to His beloved Prophet Sallallahu`Alayhi Wa Sallam creating a clearer understanding of Almighty Allah’s Majesty. If Almighty Allah’s Unseen world were to be unveiled to ordinary mortals like you and I, we would surely become insane.

There was a man sitting at a bar, and he looks over at the gentleman sitting next to him and says, "Hey, you look familiar.

Are you from around here?" The man answers, "Yeah, I live down the street."

"No kidding?" says the first man, "Well, so do I. And hey, you look about my age. Where did you go to high school?"

"Oh I went to Francis Lewis over on Utopia. Graduated in '66.

How 'bout you?"

"Get out. I went to Francis Lewis. And I graduated in '66, too." "Where'd you go to college?"

"Beloit, in Wisconsin."

"No way! I went to Beloit too. What dorm?"

"Kevin Sullivan dorm."

"Sullivan? You're not going to believe this . . ."

Joe the bartender walks over, and the first guy says, "Joe, you won't believe it in a million years. This guy went to the same high school as me, graduated the same year I did, and went to the same college. We were even in the same dorm. Isn't that amazing?"

Joe looks at them both and says, "Yeah, that's just plain amazing."

A third man comes in and says, "Hey Joe. What's new?" Joe says, "Not much. The Johnson twins are drunk again."
