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



By Sheikh Saleh Ibn Abdullah Ibn Humaid - 1435

His Eminence Sheikh Saleh Ibn Abdullah Ibn Humaid -may Allah protect him- delivered this Friday Khutbah titled “Thwarters of (Good) Deeds” in which he dealt with the causes which thwart good deeds, such as showing off, sinning in private, self-conceit, and the like. He warned that those suffering from such fatal diseases think that they are doing good deeds but they later realise that all their deeds have gone up in smoke.

Praise be to Allah! Praise be to Allah Who created, gave rise to original existence, designed everything to perfection, and multiplied creatures:

Now then,

O People! I enjoin you, as well as myself, to observe Taqwa (fear of disobeying Allah). So, adhere to Taqwa -may Allah have mercy on you! In fact, each servant of Allah is accountable to his Lord for his deeds and all his actions are recorded (by Allah). The sun of everyone’s lifetime is about to set. So, beware of committing sins and developing a hard-hearted character.

You were certainly not created fortuitously, nor will you be left unaccountable for your actions. This worldly life is created for you but you are created for the hereafter. Bear in mind that in the hereafter there will be either Paradise or Hellfire. After death, none will be allowed to make any excuses (for negligence).

In order to frequently call ourselves to account (for our actions), have a high-aiming ambition, and be determined, let us ponder over a specific verse within the Book of Allah. It is a verse in the Book of Allah which softens stone hearts and awakens negligent souls. It is a verse that calls for insightful meditation and induces reflection. It is a verse in the Book of Allah which has caused pious people to become grey-haired, the hearts of Allah’s devout servants to be filled with fear, fearful people to shed tears, and apprehensive people (about divine chastisement) to have gooseflesh (with fright). How capable they are! How great their pondering on the Qur’an is! How much influenced they are with its exhortations! How much disciplined they are with regard to abiding by its proscriptions! This verse is Allah’s following statement (Glory and Power be to Him):

"... and there will become apparent to them from Allâh, what they had not been reckoning." [Al-Zumar: 47] read more

"All praise belongs to Allah who adorned me with clothing by which I cover (hide) my private areas and by which I obtain beauty in my life".

Note: While removing clothing recite "Bismillah" as Satan does not look at the private parts due to this.

A team of engineers were required to measure the height of a flag pole. They only had a measuring tape, and were getting quite frustrated trying to keep the tape along the pole. It kept falling down, and so on.

A mathematician comes along, finds out their problem, and proceeds to remove the pole from the ground and measure it easily. When he leaves, the one engineer says to the other: "Just typical of a mathematician! We need to know the height, and he gives us the length!"
