By Sheikh Abdul-Bari ibn Awwad al-Thubaiti - 14 Thul Hijjah 1437

His Eminence Sheikh Abdul-Bari ibn Awwad al-Thubaiti, may Allah preserve him, delivered the Friday Khutbah entitled, “The Season of Hajj and the Expiation of Sins,” in which he talked about the season of pilgrimage to the Sacred Mosque in Makkah, whose rituals were almost concluded, and the pilgrims’ preparation to return to their homelands. He stated that one of the greatest virtues of performing this rite is the expiation of one’s sins, showing that pilgrims return home as sinless as they were the day they were born. He also reminded the pilgrims of the necessity of maintaining their records of deeds clean from sins, referring to a number of virtuous deeds with which Allah expiates His servants’ sins. read more

DUA (prayer)


The words of Takbir at-Tashriq are:

الله أكبر الله أكبر لا إله إلا الله والله أكبر الله أكبر ولله الحمد

Transliteration: Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Laa Ilaaha illallaahu wa Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa lillahi al-hamd

Translation: Allah is the Greatest. Allah is the Greatest. There is no deity worthy of worship but Him. Allah is the Greatest. Allah is the Greatest. And for Allah is all praises.

It is Wajib (compulsory) to read the Takbir at-Tashriq once audibly immediately after every congregational and non-congregational Fardh Salah and Jumu`ah Salah, whether a traveller or non-traveller, a male or female, from the Fajr prayer of the day of Arafat (9th Thul Hajj) to Asr of the fifth day (14th Thul Hajj).

(Shami vol. 1 pg. 406)

A man was telling one of his friends the secret of his contented married life, "My wife makes all the small decisions," he explained, "and I make all the big ones, so we never interfere in each other's business and never get annoyed with each other. We have no complaints and no arguments."

!!! "That sounds reasonable," answered his friend sympathetically. "And what sort of decisions does your wife make?"

"Well," answered the man, "she decides what jobs I apply for, what sort of house we live in, what furniture we have, where we go for our holidays, and things like that."

His friend was surprised. "Oh?" he said. "And what do you consider important decisions then?"

!!! "Well," answered the man, "I decide who should be the Prime Minister, whether we should increase our help to poor countries, what we should do about the violence and crime, and things like that."
