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



By Sheikh Saud Al-Shuraim - 11 Jumaadal Ukhraa 1435

His Eminence Sheikh Saud Al-Shuraim -may Allah protect him- delivered the Friday Khutbah titled “Maintaining Vigilance and Caution” in which he spoke about the importance of vigilance to both the individual and society. He also called for a balance between excess and negligence as a necessary course of action. The Sheikh supported his argument with evidence from the Holy Qur’aan and the Prophet’s (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) Hadeeths.

Praise be to Allah! We praise Him, seek His assistance and forgiveness, and return unto Him repentant. We seek shelter in Allah from evil inherent in our own selves and from our sinful deeds. Whomever Allah guides will never be misguided by anyone else and whomever Allah misguides will find nobody else to offer him guidance. I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah alone, with no associate, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Servant and Messenger of Allah.

Life’s days keep alternating between opposite states of affairs, and its nights are replete with unpredictable happenings only known to Him Who decrees them (Allah). No sooner does one enjoy a single moment of life than successive instants of sorrow will ensue. One day you are the happiest on earth; the next you are the most miserable: read more

DUA (prayer)

Allah humma raba ha-thi hida'wa titaamma -- Was'a-laatil qaa ema -- A ti muhammadan, el wa see la ta, wal fa 'deelah -- Wab 'ath hu ma qaa-man mah-moo dan ela thee wa a'dta (BUKHARI)

"O Allah, the Lord of this total call (invitation, proclamation) and the Lord of the Salaat to begin, grant Muhammad 'intercession' (a special status) and grant him superiority and let him reach Mooqame Mahmood which You have promised, for definitely You do not go back on Your promises".

By reciting this Dua, one will receive the intercession of Prophet Mohammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), In-Shaa Allah! (Mishkat)

Strive by thy acts to be good and wear anything thou listest.
Place a crown on thy head and a flag on thy back.
The abandoning of the world, of lust, and of desire
Is sanctity, not the abandonment of the robe only?
Of what profit are weapons of war to a frail person?
