By Sheikh Abdul-Muhsin ibn Muhammad al-Qasim - 03 Muharram 1437

His Eminence Sheikh Abdul-Muhsin ibn Muhammad al-Qasim, may Allah preserve him, delivered the Friday khutbah entitled, “Trials and Steadfastness of the Heart,” in which he talked about the trials and tribulations that have befallen the Muslim Ummah, explaining that the remedy for such trials and success in facing them lie in returning to the Two Revelations: the Qur’an and the Sunnah. He also talked in some detail about the righteous deeds, such as the obligatory and supererogatory acts of worship, which in turn can help one stand firm on the truth.

Praise be to Allah. We praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil within ourselves and from our wrong deeds. He whom Allah guides, none can misguide, and he whom Allah sends astray, none can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone, Who has no partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger. May Allah bestow his bountiful peace and blessings upon him and upon his family and Companions. Read more

DUA (prayer)


The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) was such that if he newly acquired clothing he would name it by its name: either shirt, or turban, then, he would say:

'Allahumma laka 'Al-hamdu 'anta kasawtaneehi 'as'aluka min khayrihi wa khayra ma suni`a, wa 'a`outhu bika min sharrihi wa sharri ma suni`a lahu.'

"O my Iilah to You is all praise, You have clothed it upon me. I ask You the good of it, and the good it was made for; and I seek refuge in You from the evil of it, and the evil it was made for."
