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


Gratitude to Allaah, and Limiting the Spread of Diseases

By Shaykh Abdullaah ibn Awwaad al-Juhanee - 11 Rajab 1441h (6 March 2020)

Indeed, all praise is due to Allaah. We praise Him, seek His assistance, and ask His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evils of our own souls and from the evil results of our actions. If Allaah guides someone, none can lead that person astray; and if Allaah leaves someone to stray, none can guide him. I testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah alone, without any partner, and I further testify that our Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) is Allah's worshipping servant and Messenger.

Servants of Allaah, you must observe Taqwaa of Allaah and you must realize that Taqwaa is the foundation of all happiness, as well as the path to success in this world and the hereafter. ((When someone observes Taqwaa, Allaah will give that person a way out of every difficulty)) [65:2]. ((When someone observes Taqwaa, Allaah makes things easy for him)) [65:4].

Dear Muslims, the blessings that Allaah grants us are innumerable. Among the most significant of them is the blessing of sending Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), the seal of the Prophets, as a Messenger (may Allaah grant him commendation and protection). Therefore, it is necessary to be duly grateful to Allaah for this blessing by following that Messenger and accepting his message. Allaah, the Most Exalted, said, ((As completion of Our blessings to the residents of Jannah, We will remove all rancour from their hearts and We will grant them rivers that flow beneath them. When they enter Jannah, they will say, “All praise is due to Allaah who guided us to do what led to this reward. We ourselves could not have attained guidance had Allaah not guided us to His path and kept us steadfast upon it)) [7:43]. Allaah, the Most Exalted, also said, ((Messenger of Allaah, they think that by accepting Islaam they have done you a favour for which you are indebted to them. Tell them, “Do not consider your acceptance of Islaam as a favour to me. Rather, it is you yourselves who will benefit from it. You must realize that Allaah is the One who has done you a favour by guiding you to accept eemaan – having sound beliefs and performing righteous deeds – if your claim to have entered His religion is genuine”)) [49:17]. 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-WADOOD: The Most Loving - The One Who is the source of all love and affection. His Love is intense, constant and lasting. Al-Wadood is the One Who is deserving of all love and affection! Al-Wadood loves the believers and the believers love Him more than anything.

A man goes on a 2-month business trip to Europe and leaves his cat with his brother. Three days before his return he calls his brother.

Brother 1: So how is my cat doing?

Brother 2: He's Dead

Brother 1: He's Dead! What do you mean He's Dead! I loved that cat. Couldn't you think of a nicer way to tell me! I'm leaving in 3 days. You could of broke me to the news easier. You could have told me today that she got out of the house or something. Then when I called before I left you could have told me, Well, we found her, but she is up on the roof and we're having trouble getting her down. Then when I call you from the airport you could have told me, The Fire Department was there and scared her off the roof and the cat died when it hit the ground.

Brother 2: I'm're right...that was insensitive I won't let it happen again.

Brother 1: Alright, alright, forget about it. Anyway, how is Mom doing?

Brother 2: She's up on the roof and we're having trouble getting her down.
