By Sheikh Osama Bin Abdullah Khayyat - 30 Jumaadal Ukrau 1434

His Eminence Sheikh Osama Bin Abdullah Khayyat ?may Allah protect him?delivered this week’s Friday Khutbah titled “Interconnection between Tongue, Heart, and Limbs” in which he spoke about a person's tongue, heart, and deeds by referring to some verses quoted from the Holy Qur’an "And of mankind there is he whose speech may please you …" [Al-Baoara: 204]. He warned the believers against such a conduct and depicted in detail the major personality traits characterising these violators of Allah’s commands.

Praise be to Allah Who perfected the Religion for us, completed his favours upon us and privileged us by sending us the Master of the Messengers. I praise Him (?) for we eternally owe Him gratitude. I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship save Allah, the unquestionably self-evident Sovereign and the All-True; I bear witness that our Master and Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) is Allah’s Servant and Messenger sent as mercy to the entire universe. O Allah! Bestow Your Salat (Graces, Honours, and Mercy) upon Your Servant and Messenger Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), and be pleased with his family, all his Companions, the tabi'în (the contemporaries of the Companions of the Prophet ?Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam? after his death), and on all those who righteously followed them till the Day of Judgement.

Servants of Allah! Fear Allah and remember that you are going to meet Him and stand before Him: "The Day when man shall remember what he strove for." [Al-Naziât: 35]

O Muslims! While there are amongst people those who sacrifice their own lives to win Allah’s satisfaction (thus proving that they are pure-hearted, sincere in speech, devout in action, committed to the pursuit of good deeds, and good-intentioned in all their activities). Conversely, there are others who seek to impress their interlocutors by using eloquent discourse which delights them and appeals to their senses, -especially when they unfailingly resort to swearing by Allah that they are being sincere in their speech, claiming that their inner feelings correspond to their outer verbal expression. Nonetheless, their deeds fail to conform to their speech, disproving their claim. read more

DUA (Prayer)
Entering and Exiting the Rest-Room

Sayyadina Anas RA said: The Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam was such that if he would enter the privy, he would say:

Bismillãhi, 'allãhumma 'innee 'a`outhu bika minal-khubthi wal khabã'ithi.

In the Name of Allah; my 'ilãh I seek refuge in You from the male, and female devils (Shayateen, which is the plural for Shaytan).


The Significance of the Number 7 in Islam – Teacher Ahmed Saeed

Teacher Ahmed Saeed presented a brief finding of his research on the significance of the Number 7 in the Glorious Qur’an and Islam. This phenomenon is referred to as the ‘numeric miracle’ of the Qur’an.
His research on this amazing topic primarily centres around the work of an engineer named Abdu Da'im Al Kaheel entitled Miracle of the Seven Mathani.

Abdu Da’im explained, ‘After studying thousands of Qur’anic words and passages, I have arrived at what can be considered the discovery of an intricate numeric system that rests within the verses of the Noble Qur’an.

‘The foundation and basis of this numeric system is the number 7, one of the most significant numbers in the Noble Qur’an1 (if not the most significant), and a hint, perhaps, that the Creator of the seven heavens is indeed the One Who sent down this Book, preserving it from distortion..’

One of the easiest ways to prove the validity and divine origin of the Qu’ran, though not necessary for Belief, is to compare scientific hints in the Quran against the scientific knowledge agreed upon by most scientists today. Abdu Da’im mentioned that, by this process, we will find that whatever was mentioned in the Quran is true. The Quran has scientific information that could not possibly have been known at the time of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam. Many of such scientific information have only been discovered recently by scientists using modern technologies that were not available 1434 years ago.

Some examples are: the number 7 is used 24 times throughout the Qur’an; 7 Heavens, 7 Earths and 7 Roads of the Heavens. There are 7 days in the week; 7 colours in the rainbow; 7 orbital shells surrounding the atomic nucleus when considering the Micro world; 7 folds Heavens when considering the Macro world; 7 ingredients human beings have been created from; 7 stages in the life of human beings; 7 moving objects amongst the stars including the sun and moon; etc. In the Bible too, there is deep symbolism of the number 7 viz.7 days of creation; 7 deadly sins; etc. Listen

And Allah Almighty knows best!
