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



By Imâm al-Madîna al-Munawarrah 'Alî Abd-ur-Rahmân al-Hudhaifî

All praise is due to Allâh, Lord of all the worlds. Peace and blessings of Allâh be upon the Messenger, his household and companions.

Fellow Muslims! Fear Allâh as He should be feared. Fear of Allâh is the provision against hardships of this world and the Hereafter. It is the cause of attaining Allâh's pleasure and averting His punishment.

Dear brethren! Man's happiness lies in maintaining the nature upon which Allâh created the creation. He should not allow his nature to deviate from the straight path nor should he live it for neither desires and doubts nor should he left his soul at the mercy of devils among the jinn and mankind. He should rather seek the protection of his soul with Allâh, rely on Him and hold fast unto the upright religion of Allâh. Allâh says,

"So set you (O Muhammad (peace be upon him)) your face towards the religion (of pure Islamic Monotheism) Hanîf (worship none but Allâh Alone). Allâh's Fitrah (i.e. Allâh's Islamic Monotheism) with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in (the religion of Allâh - Islamic Monotheism): that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. (Ar-Rûm 30:30) Read More

The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) has said: "Allah has ninety-nine names, i.e. one-hundred minus one, and whoever knows them will go to Paradise." (Sahih Bukhari 50:894)

Abu Huraira RA reported Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) as saying: "There are ninety-nine names of Allah; he who commits them to memory would get into Paradise. Verily, Allah is Odd (He is one, and it is an odd number) and He loves odd numbers.." (Sahih Muslim Book-48 Hadith-5)

Three men went to Mexico together on a vacation. They had known each other in high school, and they were eager to get to know each other again.

One night, they went out on the town and got completely drunk. When they woke up the next morning, they were in a jail cell. They asked the guard why they were there. He replied, "Last night the three of you killed an old man. You will be executed at noon."

Of course, none of them believed this. They begged and pleaded with their jailer, and even offered him substantial bribes if he would just let them go. But, he stood firm, and the jail door stayed shut.

The hour came. They all ate their last meal and were herded into the room where the electric chair sat. The first man was strapped into the chair and was asked for his last words.

He said, "Well, I'm a theologian from Divinity School, and I believe in the power of God to intervene on behalf of the innocent."

The executioner threw the switch, but nothing happened. He immediately thought, "God must be on this man's side." So he let him go.

The second man was strapped in, and he was asked for his last words. He responded, "I'm a lawyer from Law School, and I believe in the power of justice to intervene on behalf of the innocent."

The switch was thrown, but again, nothing happened. The executioner figured that justice must be on this man's side, and he let him go.

Finally, the third man was strapped into the chair and was asked for his last words.

"Well, I'm an electrical engineer, and nothing's going to happen if you don't connect those two wires right there..."
