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



By Sheikh Ali ibn Abdur-Rahman Al-Hudhaifi - 24 Rajab 1435

His Eminence Sheikh Ali ibn Abdur-Rahman Al-Hudhaifi, may Allah preserve him, delivered the Friday Khutbah entitled, “Take Advantage of Your Life to Do Acts of Obedience to Allah”, in which he said that it is every Muslim’s duty to make the most of his life by doing good deeds and keeping away from forbidden acts. He cited a lot of evidence to this effect from the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger, peace and blessings be upon him, emphasizing the importance of paying special attention to the Ummah’s youth by encouraging them to do good deeds and dissuading them form distractions and anything that is harmful to their religion and worldly life.

Your Lord, Might and Majesty be to Him, has made this worldly life an abode for doing deeds, where each one has an appointed term, and He has made the hereafter an abode for judgment for what we did on earth, with reward for the good deeds and punishment for the evil deeds. Allah, Exalted be He, says:

"And to Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, that He may requite those who do evil with that which they have done (i.e. punish them in Hell), and reward those who do good, with what is best (i.e. Paradise)." (An-Najm: 31)

Allah, Exalted be He, also says:
"Verily! We have made that which is on earth as an adornment for it, in order that We may test them (mankind) as to which of them are best in deeds. [i.e. those who do good deeds in the most perfect manner, that means to do them (deeds) totally for Allah’s sake and in accordance to the legal ways of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him]." (Al-Kahf: 7) read more:

Woke up this morning with a smile on my face
It’s the end of a week-long race
It passed by at a steady pace and the weekend I did chase
I feel revived more so because Jummah has arrived
The most beautiful day of the week in sickness or health, Jummah makes me feel like I have incredible wealth
Oh how I waited for this day to stand tall and pray shoulder to shoulder, brother to brother like there is no other
Thank Allah for making me part of this Ummah
Oh what a wonderful feeling when we are in front of you (Allah) kneeling before you
These are just a few reasons why I woke up with a smile today and each and every week I say
Thanks Allah its Friday
