By Sheikh Osama ibn Abdullah Khayyat - 02 JUmaadal Ukhraa 1437

His Eminence Sheikh Osama ibn Abdullah Khayyat –May Allah protect him– delivered this Friday Khutbah entitled “The Code of Ethics of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) in Peace and War.” He talked about the blessing of the Bi’thah of the Prophet –May Allah’s Salat and Peace be upon him– to all humankind, and it is the best blessing, as it represents the value of compassion encompassing all aspects of life and benefiting the whole social spectrum. Then, the Sheikh explained one aspect of this blessing as reflected in the Prophet’s –May Allah’s Salat and Peace be upon him– code of ethics in peace and war. He showed how he was keen on sparing lives and protecting property. The same applies to his Companions –May Allah be pleased with them all– and those who righteously followed in their footsteps. read more

"In the name of Allah"

and then say after mounting the vehicle, or a being already seated in the vehicle:

"All praise is for Allah. How far from imperfections He is, the One Who has placed this (transport) at our service and we ourselves would not have been capable of that, and to our Lord is our final destiny.

All praise is for Allah, All praise is for Allah, All praise is for Allah, Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest. How far from imperfections You are, O Allah, verily I have wronged my soul, so forgive me, for surely none can forgive sins except You."

Note: The prophet of Allah (may the Peace and Blessing of Allah be upon him): Allah approves of his servant when he says: 'forgive me my sins', and would say: 'he knows that non forgives the sins but Me'.

Delightful chicken with garlic cloves, vinegar and pepper garnished with lemon, and basil.

4 chicken Breast Halves (skinless and boneless)
2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
2 tblsp Lemone Juice
1 tsp Paprika
Salt and Pepper according to taste
2 tblsp Margarine or Butter
½ tsp Lemon Zest (grated)

How to make lemon garlic chicken:
Drizzle chicken with salt, paprika and pepper. In a skillet melt butter or margarine over medium-high heat. Combine chicken to skillet when pan becomes hot. Fry chicken on each side till it is slightly browned: it takes about 2-3minutes. Place the chicken on a baking sheet. Sprinkle half of the lemon juice over the chicken. Bake it in a preheated oven to 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Mix garlic to the hot pan and fry till it appears brown in color; it will take about 1to 2 minutes. Combine lemon zest to the pan after 2 minutes. Reduce by half, then cover it and set aside. Combine lemon juice over the chicken once again. Pour the remaining lemon juice over the chicken once again. Bake for another 5 minutes. Take it out. Place chicken over dish of rice. Spoon the sauce on it. Garnish with some lemon-twists, sage or basil.
