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



By Sh Husain Aal Ash-Sheikh - Imam of Haram

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

Fellow Muslims! Fear Allaah in your words and deeds, for “Whoever fears Allaah, and keeps his duty to Him, He will provide him a way out (of every difficulty), and He will provide him from sources he could never imagine.” (At-Talaaq: 2-3)

Dear Muslims! The greatest blessing that Allaah bestowed on humankind is His sending of Muhammad - peace and blessings be on him - with a pure religion that brings all good to mankind and protects them from all that is evil through its principles of justice, brotherhood, freedom and peace.

Brothers in Islaam! The faith that the Prophet established its pillars is the source of all good and felicity for those who follow its guidance. This faith is the pure tree with ripe and everlasting fruits. Allaah says, “See you not how Allaah set forth a parable? – A goodly word as a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed and its branches (reach) to the sky. Giving its fruits at all times by the leave of its Lord…” (Ibraahiem: 24).

Brothers in faith! Only through true faith can man know his appropriate place and march on the path marked for him with light and sure knowledge. He will follow only the right guidance and live his life in righteousness in line with his pure nature and clean conscience far from ugly deeds and behaviours. read more

"O Allah, You are pure, I praise You and testify that there is none worthy of worship besides You. I seek forgiveness and pardon from You".

If there was good talk in the gathering, this Dua will seal it and if there was futile and vain talk, then this Dua will recompense for it.

A koala was sitting in a gum tree smoking a cigar. When a little lizard walked past, looked up and said, ‘Hey Koala! What are you doing?

The koala said, ‘Smoking a cigar, come up and have some.’

So the little lizard climbed up and sat next to the koala where they enjoyed a few cigars. After a while the little lizard said that his mouth was ‘dry’ and that he was going to get a drink from the river…

The little lizard was so stoned that he leaned over too far and fell into the river. A crocodile saw this and swam over to the little lizard and helped him to the side. Then he asked the little lizard, ‘What’s the matter with you?’

The little lizard explained to the crocodile that he had been sitting with the koala in the tree, smoking cigars, but got too stoned and fell into the river while taking a drink…

The crocodile said that he had to check this out and walked into the rain forest, found the tree where the koala was sitting finishing a joint. The crocodile looked up and said, ‘Hey you!’

So the koala looked down at him and said, ‘dude… How much of water did you drink!?’
