By Sheikh Abdul-Bari ibn Awwad al-Thubaiti - 16 JUmaadal Ukhrau 1437

His Eminence Sheikh Abdul-Bari ibn Awwad al-Thubaiti, may Allah preserve him, delivered the Friday Khutbah entitled, “A Warning against Haste,” in which he talked about haste and warned against it. He explained that there are two kinds of haste: one commendable, which is hastening to do righteous deeds, and the other reprehensible. He further explained that reprehensible haste takes different forms and showed its remedies in the light of the Qur’an and the Sunnah. read more

O Allah, I ask You for it’s goodness, the good within it, and the good it was sent with,

And I seek refuge with You from it’s evil, the evil within it, and from the evil it was sent with.

allaahumma innee as’aluka khayrahaa, wa khayra maa feehaa, wa khayra maa ursilat bih, wa a‛oodhu bika min sharrihaa, wa sharri maa feehaa, wa sharri maa ursilat bih

'What is the meaning of Fate, Mullah?'


'In what way?'

'You assume things will go well, and they don't - that you call bad luck. You assume things are going to be bad and they don't - that you call good luck. You assume that certain things are going to happen or not happen - and you so lack intuition that you don't know what is going to happen. You assume that the future is unknown.'

'When you are caught out - YOU call that Fate.'
