The Delight of the Heart

By Shaykh Saud bin Ibrahim bin Muhammed Al-Shareem Imaam and Khateeb of Al-Masjid Al-Haram

I advise you and myself to have Taqwa of Allah; it is the provision that will be most beneficial on the final Day.

Allah (Subhaanah Wa Ta'ala) says advising His Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam): “Recite (O Muhammed) what has been revealed to you of the Book (Quran), and perform as-Salah. Verily, as-Salah (prayer) prevents from al-Fah-shaa (great sins of every kind) and al-Munkar (disbelief, and every wicked deed). And the Remembering (praising) of (you by) Allah (in front of the angels) is greater indeed [than your remembering (praising) Allah in prayers]. And Allah knows what you do." Al-Ankabut 29:45

He, Allah (Subhaanah Wa Ta'ala) also said: “I (Muhammed) have been commanded only to worship the Lord of this city (Makkah), Him Who has sanctified it and His is everything. And I am commanded to be from among the Muslims (those who submit to Allah in Islam). And to recite the Quran." An-Naml 27:91,92

Allah (Subhaanah Wa Ta'ala) said: “Nay, but they, the clear Ayat [the description and the qualities of Prophet Muhammed (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) written like verses in the Torah and the Gospel] are preserved in the breasts of those who are have been given knowledge (from the people of the Scriptures). And none but the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong doers¦) deny Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons and signs)." Al-Ankabut 29:49 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)


AL-HAKEEM: The All-Wise - The One Whose wisdom is perfect, free from any error or misunderstanding. His divine will is executed with His divine wisdom, which means He does everything in the most appropriate way in the best place and time.

Pizza... always confuses… it comes in a square box… when you open it… it’s round… when you start eating it… it’s a triangle!

Life & People are also like Pizzas… They look different... They appear different... & ... Behave absolutely differently.
