May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



By Sheikh Salah Al-Budair - 30 Rabiul Awwal 1435

His Eminence Sheikh Salah Al-Budair, may Allah preserve him, delivered the Friday khutbah entitled, “The Characteristics of the Wise and the Foolish”, in which he talked about the mind as the realm of thinking and reasoning, reminding the audience of the characteristics of the sensible people and warning them against the traits of the foolish and the ignorant.

Praise be to Allah, Who has honoured and bestowed upon whomever He wills the blessing of the mind. I thank Him for whatever favours He has bestowed and lavished on us. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone, Who has no partners, a testimony that leads to the straightest path. I also bear witness that our prophet and master Muhammad is His servant and messenger, who was favoured with the gifts of magnificent wisdom and concise speech that carries the widest meanings, and with the treasures of knowledge, forbearance, and munificence. May Allah bestow His peace and blessings upon him, his family, and his Companions. read more

DUA (prayer)

DU’AA’ AL-KARB (prayer at times of stress).

It was narrated from Ibn Abbaas RA that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to say at times of stress:

“Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah ul-‘azeem al-haleem, laa ilaaha ill-Allaah Rabb il-‘arsh il’azeem, laa ilaaha ill-Allaah Rabb ul-samawaati wa rabb ul-ard wa rabb ul-‘arsh il-kareem

There is none worthy of worship besides Allaah, the Almighty, the Forbearing; there is none worthy of worship besides Allaah, Lord of the Mighty Throne; there is none worthy of worship besides Allaah, Lord of the heavens, Lord of the earth and Lord of the noble Throne).”

~ Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6346; Muslim, 2730. ~

EFF, Floyd & Brian Shivambu VBS Bank Fraud Legtimized by Zuma - A Wits professor says it’s not surprising that Economic Freedom Fighters deputy president Floyd Shivambu’s brother is involved in the VBS Mutual Bank scandal as the behaviour has been legitimised by former president Jacob Zuma.

A union shop steward is addressing a union meeting...

"Good News! We have agreed on a new deal with the management. We will no longer work four days a week."

"Hooray!” goes the crowd.
"We will finish work at 4 PM, not 5 PM."
"Hooray!” goes the crowd, again.
"We will start work at 10 AM, not 9 AM."
"We have a 150% pay rise."
"We will only work on Wednesdays."

Silence... then a voice from the back asks, "Every Wednesday?"
