A Worshipper's Happiness Lies in his Obedience to his Lord

By Sh Ali Ibn Abdul Rahman Al-Huthaifi - 02 Muharram 1434

His eminence Sheikh Ali Ibn Abdul Rahman Al-Huthaifi, may Allah preserve him, delivered the Friday sermon entitled '' A Worshipper's Happiness Lies in his Obedience to his Lord." In this sermon, he talked about obedience to Allah the Almighty and said that nobody ever suffered because of his obedience and nobody ever found happiness because of his disobedience. He highlighted the fact that the passing days bear witness to good or evil deeds, and lamented those who do not save Allah's blessings to benefit from them on the Day of Judgment. So, people of vision should learn a lesson from this. read more

When rain exceeds the limits


اللَّهُمَّ حَوَالَيْنَا وَلَا عَلَيْنَا اللَّهُمَّ عَلَى الْأَكَامِ وَالْأَجَامِ وَالظِّرَابِ وَالْأَدْوِيَةِ وَمَنَابِةِ الشَّجَرِ

"O Allah, let it rain around us and not on us. O Allah, let it rain on the peaks and mountains and the rivers and at the forests".

(Tirmidhi, Bukhari, Muslim)

A magician worked on a cruise ship. The audience was different each week, so the magician did the same tricks over and over again. There was one problem. The captain's parrot saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick. Once he understood, he started shouting in the middle of the show "Look, it's not the same hat!" or, "Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table," or "Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?"

The magician was furious, but couldn't do anything. It was, after all, the captain's parrot. Then the ship sank. The magician found himself on a piece of wood in the middle of the sea with, as fate would have it, the parrot. They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word. This went on for a day and then another and then another. Finally on the fourth day, the parrot could not hold back and said,

"OK, I give up. Where's the ship?"
