Seeking Forgiveness in the Light of the Qur’an and the Sunnah

By Sheikh Ali ibn Abdur-Rahman al-Huthaifi - 09 Muharram 1437

His Eminence Sheikh Ali ibn Abdur-Rahman al-Huthaifi, may Allah preserve him, delivered the Friday Khutbah entitled, “Seeking Forgiveness in the Light of the Qur’an and the Sunnah,” in which he talked about seeking forgiveness from Allah, showing the virtues and benefits of doing so. He started with how the prophets, peace and blessings be upon them, asked Allah for forgiveness, citing some Qur’anic verses and hadiths to this effect, and then explained the situations in which one should ask forgiveness of Allah. In the second part of the khutbah, he warned against the trials facing the Ummah and against following dubious ideas. read more

Vinegar 2-3 tablespoon
Soya Sauce 4 tablespoon

Cooking oil 4-6 tablespoon

Spring Onion (Chopped) 2 tablespoon
Carrot (Julienne) 2 tablespoon

Marinate chicken with chilli sauce, vinegar, soya sauce, salt, white pepper, sugar and Chinese salt. Keep aside for half an hour. In a pot, heat Cooking Oil on medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Saute garlic for a minute and add chicken. Golden fry the chicken on high heat and remove it from the pot. In the same pot add tomato paste, ketchup and stock. Add salt, whole red chillies and cook until thick. Add the chicken and bring to a boil. Heat a sizzler plate (easily available in shops) on medium heat for 10 minutes and pour the machurian into the hot plate.

To make chicken stock, boil 1/2 kg chicken bones in a pot with 4-6 cups of water until only one cup of stock remains. To avoid heek, add one small whole peeled onion and 2-4 black pepper corns when it comes to a boil. Instead of stock, you can also use 1-2 chicken cubes dissolved in 1 cup water.

A 4-year-old son was eating an apple in the back seat of the car, when he asked, "Daddy, why is my apple turning brown?"

"Because," his dad explained, "after you ate the skin off, the meat of the apple came into contact with the air, which caused it to oxidize, thus changing the molecular structure and turning it into a different color."

There was a long silence. Then the son asked softly, "Daddy, are you talking to me?
