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



By Sheikh Saleh Ibn Abdullah Ibn Humaid - 07 Muharram 1436

His Eminence Sheikh Saleh Ibn Abdullah Ibn Humaid - May Allah protect him - delivered this Khutbah titled “Present Situation of the Muslim Ummah: Graces and Trials” in which he addressed the bitter state of the Muslim Ummah and the onslaught that it is facing from every direction. He explained how the enemies of the Ummah have used all ways and means at their disposal to undermine the constants of the religion and to shake the Muslims’ stability everywhere. Sheikh Ibn Humaid exhorted Muslims to adhere to the Noble Book and the Sunnah and to uphold the ways of the righteous salaf (predecessors) saying that they embody salvation from trials and unrest. He also reminded Muslims of the favours bestowed on the home of the Two Holy Mosques by Almighty Allah.

O Servant of Allah!
Follow (our righteous predecessors), do not innovate (in religion). Imitate (righteous Muslim models), do not initiate (innovations in religion). He who holds fast to athar (track/tradition) will never go astray. A subordinate in the realm of good is superior to a leader in the realm of evil. If you cannot do your brother/sister (in Islam) good, do not do him harm. If you cannot make him/her happy, do not make him/her miserable, and if you cannot praise him/her, do not censure him/her.

Human beings are not blamed for the way they look, but for the way they behave:
"So keep your duty to Allah and fear Him as much as you can; listen and obey; and spend in charity that is better for yourselves. And whosoever is saved from his own covetousness, they are the successful ones." [Al-Taghabun: 16]

O Muslims!
The advent of a new year is the time for reflection, contemplation and learning from history. It seems necessary to hold the self to account when taking a good look at oneself and at the Muslim Ummah, though it is a bitter pill to swallow. What happened to our dignity? What happened to our unity of hearts? What happened to the state of the Muslim Ummah? read more

A very successful businessman had a meeting with his new son-in-law. “I welcome you into the family, said the man. To show you how much we care for you, I am making you a 50-50 partner in my business. All you have to do is go to the factory every day and learn the operation.”

The son-in-law interrupted. “I hate factories. I can’t stand the noise.” “I see,” replied the father-in-law, “Well then, you’ll work in the office and take charge of some of the operations.” “I hate office work,” said the son-in-law. “I can’t stand being stuck behind a desk.” “Wait a minute,” said the father-in-law. “I just made you half owner of a money-making industry, but you don’t like factories, and won’t work in an office. What am I going to do with you??” “Easy,” said the son-in-law. “Buy me out.”
