“And Worship your Lord until there comes unto you the Certainty”

by Imâm al-Haramain Sa'ûd ash-Shuraim

All praise is due to Allâh Lord of all the worlds. May peace and blessings be upon the Messenger, his household and companions.

Fellow Muslims! Fear Allâh as He should be feared and be conscious of Him in private and public. Worship Him as if you see Him, and even though you do not see Him, He sees you.

“And put your trust in All-mighty, the Most Merciful, Who sees you when you stand up (alone at night for prayers) and your movements among those who fall prostrate. Verily, He, only is the All hearer, the All knower.”

Brethren in faith! There are lessons in the passage of days and nights, and the days move quickly like clouds. The people shall continue moving until they finally end in Paradise or Hell. Also, the speed by which days and nights move now confirms the meaning of closeness of times one to another which is one of the signs of the Hour as the Prophet has informed us. This is therefore, a great opportunity for the wise people to awaken, do good deeds and have sincere repentance.

Allâh says, “It is He who has put the night and the day in succession for such who desires to remember or desires to show his gratitude.” (Al Furqân 25:62).

Muslims have recently spent a whole month enjoying the blessings of their Lord between supplications, prayers, and remembrance of Allâh, alms giving and recitation of the Qurân. But, alas, these days and their memories passed so quickly as if they were autumn leaves blown by a strong wind. read more

Knowledge is like a fruit. When a fruit grows on a branch of a tree, its weight causes that branch to bend and bow. Similarly, when knowledge increases in a person, it causes him to become humble and not Mutakabbir (proud and boastful).

A man hates his wife's cat and decides to get rid of it. He drives 20 blocks from his home and drops off the cat there. But when he arrives home, he finds the cat walking up the driveway.

The next day, he drops the cat 40 blocks away but the same thing happens. He keeps trying to get rid of the cat by increasing the distance between his home and where he abandons the animal. But the cat keeps finding his way home.

At last he decides to drive a few kilometres away, turn right then left, past the bridge, then right again and another right until he reaches what he believes is a perfect spot to dump the cat.

Hours later, the man calls his wife at home and asks: "Is the cat there?"

"Yes, why?" asks the wife.

Frustrated the man says: "Put that cat on the phone, I need directions to get home!
