Sheikh Abdurrahman Al-Sudais - 30 Thul Hijjah 1435

His Eminence Sheikh Abdurrahman Al-Sudais –may Allah protect him– delivered this Friday Khutbah entitled “Landmarks of the Virtuous Salaf Approach” in which he talked about a year departing and a new one coming. He insisted on the idea of self-accountability in the sense of monitoring oneself for any negligence or perpetration of evil deeds. He also listed a number of traits characterising the approach of the Salaf Salih (virtuous predecessors), explaining their most salient landmarks and warning against following approaches that are deviant from Islam.

Due praise be to Allah! We praise Him, seek His assistance, repent to Him, and beseech Him for forgiveness. We offer Him (Glory Be to His sublime Existence) unremitting praise and profuse expressions of gratitude for His abundant blessings bestowed in succession. Sincere and interminable homage is due to Him Almighty.

(The Sheikh includes one line of poetry paraphrased as follows):

Due praise be to Allah, unmatched by
Any form of praise ever offered by a lauder!

I bear witness that there is no deity except Allah, alone with no associate. He foreordained time, calculated its allotment, and flawlessly designed its alternation. I equally bear witness that our Prophet and Master, Muhammad, is the Servant and Messenger of Allah. He is endowed with the best manners and the most perfect look amongst mankind. May Allah send His profuse Salat (Graces, Honours, and Mercy) upon him, his family, Companions, the Tabi'īn (the contemporaries of the Companions of the Prophet [May Allah’s Salat and Peace be upon him] after his death), and all those who righteously follow in their footsteps till the Day of Judgement! read more
