By Sheikh Abdul-Bari ibn Awwad Ath-Thubaiti - 06 Ramadhan 1435

His Eminence Sheikh Abdul-Bari ibn Awwad Ath-Thubaiti, may Allah preserve him, delivered the Friday khutbah entitled, “The Pleasure of Worship”, in which he talked about the pleasure that a servant takes in worshipping his Lord, showing its different forms in the blessed month of Ramadan, such as fasting, standing in prayer at night, remembering Allah, and reciting the Qur’an, along with other acts of worship. He also referred to the greatest pleasure and everlasting bliss on the Day of Resurrection, namely looking at the noble Countenance of Allah, and mentioned the ways through which the servant can attain these pleasures.

Now then!
I advise you and advise myself to fear Allah. Allah, Exalted be He, says:

"O You who Believe! Observing As-Sawm (the fast) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious)." (Al-Baqarah: 183)

There are many things in which people take pleasure and find delight, but such pleasures and delights are transient and short-lived, and some of them even end in remorse and regret. The true pleasure is the spiritual pleasure; it is the pleasure that the heart finds in worship, which makes a Muslim experience the highest degree of happiness and joy. The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “He has found the taste of faith who is content with Allah as his Lord, with Islam as his religion, and with Muhammad as his Prophet.” In this hadith, the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, informs us that faith has a taste that the heart can feel, just as the tongue tastes food and drink. The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, also said, “There are three qualities that whoever possesses will taste the sweetness of faith ...” Faith, then, has sweetness and pleasure that make the heart happy and the soul calm and peaceful, and it is with this feeling of pleasure that the servant can reap the true fruits of his deeds and find eternal happiness. Such feeling of pleasure sets the heart right, makes it successful, joyful, and sound, and causes it to find peace and tranquility. Nothing else could give the servant this feeling, even if he got all that can cause pleasure to people. read more

Take two sheets of spring roll pastry; sprinkle a thin layer of mince/egg mixture, top with another two sheets of pastry. Then sprinkle a thin layer of mince. Then top with one sheet of pastry. Now start from one end n roll tightly as a Swiss roll. N seal the edge with lai. Finally take one sheet of pastry n put lai around the edges n in the middle and then wrap this Swiss roll in this. (So altogether u will use 6 sheets per roll). Then wrap each roll in cling wrap n freeze. U can make about 5 - 6 rolls from one kilo mince. Remember to defrost partially & slice into pinwheels while the roll is still firm. Dip in egg n fry in shallow hot oil. 1 roll slices into 20 pinwheels. Lai is the flour water paste...
