Shaykh Usamah Al Khayyat - Imaam of Haram

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

Fellow Muslims! Some people forget that one of the abundant blessings of Allaah is having spare time at one’s disposal. It time a person enjoys after he has fulfilled his obligations. Being oblivious of this blessing leads to wasting it and not giving it its due. This consequently leads to the loss of a great life opportunity and an important means of profit. This is the deceit that the Prophet meant in when said, “There are two blessings by which many people are deceived: good health and spare time.” (Al-Bukhaaree and others.)

It is in the light of this that Allaah’s Messenger gave his direction about seizing this great opportunity. He said, “Take the opportunity of five things before another five things happen: your life before your death, your health before your illness, your spare time before your busy time, your youth before your old age and your wealth before your poverty.” (Al-Haakim)

Brethren in faith! This admonition is being addressed first and foremost to the youths who are going to have the annual vacation soon. It is also being addressed to their fathers, mothers, teachers and others who know the importance of this blessing and know that if man does not occupy his mind with truth, it will be taken over by falsehood. read more

THE 99 NAMES OF ALLAH (Asmaa ul Husnaa)

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)

Our six-year-old daughter, Terra, has a need to ask questions … lots of questions. Finally, one day, my wife had had it. “Have you ever heard that curiosity killed the cat?” my wife asked.

“No,” replied Terra.

“Well, there was a cat, and he was very inquisitive. And one day, he looked into a big hole, fell in, and died!” Terra was intrigued. “What was in the hole?” she asked.
