The Status of the Companions (RA) in the Noble Qur'an and the Sunnah

By Sheikh Osama Bin Abdullah Khayyat - 02 Jumaada Thani 1434

His Eminence, Sheikh Osama Bin Abdullah Khayyat ‒ may Allah protect him‒delivered the Friday Khutbah entitled, “The Status of the Companions (RA) in the HolyBook and the Sunnah.” He spoke about the Companions (RA) and showed their merit in the Qur’ān and the Noble Sunnah. He also mentioned Muslim scholars’ consensus about the necessity to love them and be loyal to them, toconsider their enemies as our own enemies, and refrain from iterating their differences or disputes.

Praise be to Allah Who honoured His loyal worshippers and inspired His creatures to fondly cherish them. I glorify Allah Ta'ala the Supreme, Whose power on His servants is irrevocable and Whose army is the mightiest and most glorious. I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship save Allah with no associate; nor is there any spouse or offspring attributable to Him. I equally bear witness that our Master and Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), His servant and Messenger, is the most pious ever and the most open-handed of all creatures in charity. O Allah, send Your perpetual Salat (Graces, Honours and Mercy) and Peace on him, his family, and Companions.

This being said, fear Allah, O servants of Allah! Worship Him, express gratitude to Him, and turn to Him in repentance. Keep recalling that you are bound to meet Him; therefore, make yourselves ready for such an encounter: "…let not then this (worldly) present life deceive you, nor let the chief deceiver (Satan) deceive you about Allâh." [Luqman: 33]

O Muslims! There are innumerable and unrestricted aspects of sincere faith and righteous deeds which can be performed by Muslims in pursuit of Allah’s Ta'ala satisfaction and in pious quest of His Prophet’s guidance (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam). One of the sweetest fruits of faith and its rewarding impact is when Allah bestows on the genuinely devoted believers the joy of being deeply loved by His creatures who are inspired to consider them as their most cherished ones: "Verily, those who believe [in the Oneness of Allâh and in His Messenger (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم)] and work deeds of righteousness, the Most Gracious (Allâh) will bestow love for them (in the hearts of the believers)." [Maryam: 96] read more

The Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: "Whoever would say as he enters upon morning and as he enters upon evening: Subhãna 'allãhi wa bihamdihi (30) 100 times, no one would arrive on the Day of Resurrection with better than what he arrived with, except for a person who said the same, or more(31)."

1 tbslp ground green chillies – to taste depending on your taste buds
1 tbslp salt - taste
2 tblsps freshly ground black pepper - optional

You may also braise your onions slightly before adding to mince remove from heat, let it cool, then add chopped dhania, shallot mint and 1 cup crushed fried onions.You can freeze prepared mince and also use for samoosas, pies, and farmaas. When you want to freeze mince. My suggestion is not to add in the onions. Freeze without onions.

Make up a scone dough roll scone dough rectangular, spread chutney and add 2 beaten eggs to mince as much as you need. Roll up like a swiss roll and wrap in wax wrap, keep in the fridge for half an hour. Cut into 5cm sizes, brush with beaten egg and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Bake on 180 degrees for 15 minutes.Use for pies – fill pies with mince and grate a boiled egg over mince... Use for farmaas.


Dumbo saw a woman drop her purse in the high street this morning, so Dumbo quickly followed her.

Dumbo was just about to tap her on the shoulder she started running for a bus.

So Dumbo ran after her shouting, “You dropped your purse! You dropped your purse!”

She didn’t hear Dumbo and proceeded to get onto the bus, so Dumbo got on the bus too.

Dumbo walked to the back of the bus breathlessly said, “You dropped your purse on the floor outside the restaurant.”

“Thank you so much” she said, “Where is it?”

Dumbo said, “I’ve just told you, on the floor outside the restaurant.”
