Don’t Chase After The Latest Of Everything

#Materialism is taking over very fast. People really are following the latest of everything. we are drowning with that; cut it, that’s a sign of the anger of Allah .if that wealth came with the #arrogance of karun, it is a punishment and if it came with the obedience of Suleiman (as) it is actually the mercy of Allah. Be happy with what Allah has given you.

“Don’t rush behind that when you get too attached to something and it is coming between you and Allah and your heart is beginning to love it so much that it’s now getting between you and Allah , cut it. – #MuftiMenk

Reflection on Our Relationships And Palestinian Land | Abu Hanifa Sohail

Every sunset, every week that passes every, month that passes, Every sunset, every week that passes every, month that passes, to hold yourself to account before you are held to account and it is a reminder and a symbol As Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran everything upon the Earth will perish like this year has passed, like another day has passed.

The only thing that remains forever is the face of Our Lord, full of majesty and honour.

So this is an opportunity for us to remind ourselves of the temporary nature of life and the importance for all of us to make the most of this one opportunity We have to be in this Dunya and to leave a legacy.

So the only thing that will last the only thing that we will find with Allah subhanaw Taala are our Deeds. Before that day when we stand on the Day of Judgment I have to answer for our Deeds.

People Sometimes wrongly separate Islam into the rights of Allah and the rights of people. There are the rights of Allah which are directly fulfilled through our worship of Him and then there are the rights of Allah which are fulfilled through with other people.

So use this opportunity to set yourself some goals for the new Islamic year, moderate simple goals.

For the Muslim every day, every new day must be better than the day before.

So this year, this coming year what goals have you put for yourself? What aims and Ambitions have you put for yourself?

We as Muslims should be clear. The Palestine does not belong to the Palestinians. It doesn’t even belong to the Arabs. The land of Palestine is the land of the prophets/ Anbiya.

It is an Amana/ a trust which has been placed in the hands of the Muslim ummah to discharge for a period of time. It cannot be exchanged in return for favours because it is not owned by anybody.

It is an amana of the Muslim ummah given by Allah subhanaw Taala, particularly that land. So we have an important responsibility here to speak out against the oppression; The displacement, the apartheid which is happening To the Palestinian people in particular.

It is our responsibility to speak out against oppression wherever it is across the world the temporary political interest of certain leaders will never stop us doing that.

The Day Of Deleting Bad Habits From The Spirit Of Eid Al-Adha | Very Powerful one

I commenced by congratulating you upon this beautiful day of Eid which is also a Friday. We thank Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala for giving us this great opportunity and I remind yourselves and myself that this eid is all about the sacrifice and the submission to Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala that of Ibrahim alayhi salatu wassalam when Allah instructed him to do something, he did it without questioning that pleased Allah so much that Allah gave us a day where we can remember that sacrifice and also consider it a very happy occasion.

This would mean that every time Allah has instructed us to do something. We should be doing that without questioning Allah.

You will be questioned about your prayers. I want to draw your attention to things that are happening in our midst nowadays that people take for granted and they don’t realize that they need to do better in order to display their obedience to Allah.

“Everything you do;  your actions, whatever you do, your words, your movements all of that. Ask yourself when I meet with Allah, I’m going to be shown this action. Will I be proud of it?

When you meet with Allah, on that day when the book is spread. When the book is placed he’s going to show you everything; The book of Deeds.

The use of social media, the way we’re using social media at times we tend to forget; I have a lord to answer to, I have a day of judgment that I’m going to go to, all these Deeds are going to be shown to me

Passionate Reminder For Takbeer-e-Tashreeq And Times To say | Shaykh Abu Usamah At-Thahabi

Takbeer of Tashreeq:
After each Fardh Salaah Recite from Fajr of 9th Dhul Hijjah until Asr of 13th “Allaahu Akbar,
Allaahu Akbar,
Laa ilaaha il-lAllaahu,
WAllaahu Akbar
Allaahu Akbar,
Wa Lil-laahil-hamd
(Allaah is the Greatest,
Allaah is the Greatest,
there is no god but Allaah; Allaah is the Greatest
and to Allaah be all praise),”

 It is Sunnah to recite takbeer at any time during the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah and all the days of Tashreeq, starting from the beginning of the month of Dhu’l-Hijjah (i.e., from sunset on the last day of Dhu’l-Qa’dah) until the end of the days of al-Tashreeq, which is when the sun sets on the thirteenth day of Dhu’l-Hijjah).

 With regard to at certain times, it starts from Fajr on the day of ‘Arafah and lasts until the sun sets on the last day of the days of Tashreeq, in addition to the takbeer that may be recited at any time. So when a person says the tasleem at the end of the obligatory prayer, he should pray for forgiveness then start the takbeer.

 This is for those who are not on Hajj. The pilgrims should start the takbeer recited after prayer from Zuhr on the Day of Sacrifice (the 10th of Dhu’l-Hijjah).

 And Allaah knows best.

 [See Majmoo’ Fataawa Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him), 13/17; al-Sharh al-Mumti’ by Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him), 5/220-224.] no need to say..

 

 

The Dua Of Prophet ﷺ On The Day Arafat | Keep Saying | Shaykh Abu Usamah At-Thahabi

The day of Arafah, which is the ninth day of dhul-hijjah. That’s one of the 10 days that some of the scholars said was the best day out of these 10 days because they have arafah.

The best dua that people made the prophets before Rasul’allah including the Rasulullah is that they used to say:

Lā ilāha illallāh, waḥdahu lā sharīka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-ḥamdu, wa huwa ‘alā kulli shai’in qadīr.

None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, alone without partner. To Him belongs all that exists, and to Him is the praise, and He is powerful over all things

Allah Does Not Lose His People! A Reminder During First 10-Days Of Dul-Hijjah | Shaykh Omar Suliman

Ibrahim/ Abrahim (A.S) is an amazing figure one who we take our Ritual from our Deen, from the great-grandfather of the Prophet salallahu alaihe wasalam who resembled the prophet (Saw) and the prophet (Saw)’s way resembles his way the most.

Hajar (A.S), wife of prophet Ibrahim (A.S) put into the spiral of uncertainty and has to figure it out along the way in a very unique way to her perspective and in a way that we can all take lessons of conviction and certainty in times of deep uncertainty.

This is a story of a woman that was in the house of the Pharaoh. hajar (A.s) at that point with full conviction, full certainty.

She said that Allah is not going to lose His people. I’m not worried then complete Sakina, complete trust, complete Tranquillity. Imagine this situation here; She’s going to be left in the desert with a baby. No one around her, but she says Allah does not lose his people.

Hajar (A.s) is demonstrating the most beautiful verses about what it means to trust in moments  Of uncertainty. You expect good from Allah, Allah will give you good.

As long as you have that certainty in Allah that it doesn’t matter what your circumstances are; Allah does not lose His people.

 

Dua at Mount Safa and Mount Marwah

إِنَّ الصَّفَا وَالْمَرْوَةَ مِنْ شَعَائِرِ اللهِ

أَبْدَأُ بِمَا بَدَأَ اللهُ بِهِ

اللهُ أَكْبَرُ ، اللهُ أَكْبَرُ ، اللهُ أَكْبَرُ

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ ، أَنْجَزَ وَعْدَهُ ، وَنَصَرَ عَبْدَهُ ، وَهَزَمَ الأَحْزَابَ وَحْدَهُ

innaṣ-ṣafaa wal-marwata min sha‛aa’ir-illaah

allaahu akbar, allaahu akbar, allaahu akbar

laa ilaaha ill-allaahu waḥdahu laa shareeka lah, lahul-mulku wa lahul-ḥamdu wa huwa ‛alaa kulli shay’in qadeer, laa ilaaha ill-allaahu waḥdahu, anjaza wa‛dahu, wa naṣara ‛abdahu, wa hazam-al-’aḥzaaba waḥdah

Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) said when describing the Prophet’s (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) pilgrimage: …and when he approached mount Safa he recited:

“Indeed Al-Safa and Al-Marwah are from the places of worship of Allah…”

“I begin with what Allah began with.”

…so he started with Safa and climbed it until he could see the Kabah, he then faced it and said:

“Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest.”

…and then he would say the following three times making a supplication (one should make a personal supplication) after each time:

“None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner. To Him belongs all sovereignty and praise and He is over all things omnipotent. None has the right to be worshipped except Allah alone. He fulfilled His promise, aided His slave and single-handedly defeated the allies.”

…he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) would repeat this action at Marwah.

 

The Best Deeds You Can Do During The Best 10 Days Of Dhul Hijjah | Mufti Menk

The days of the first 10 of Dhul-Hijjah are more valuable than the days of Ramadan speaking of daylight.

The prophet Muhammed (Saw) said there are no days in which Allah loves Deeds more than those that are done during these first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah.

So if we were told that there are no days wherein Deeds are more loved by Allah then these 10; what should we be doing?

There is no point in sinning especially during a time when Allah says good deeds are most loved to me. We should be doing seeking the forgiveness of Allah often.

Why do you think He gives us these auspicious days and nights Him to tap us on the shoulder and tell us, it’s time you turned it to Allah.

That One Hour Of The Best Day “Arafah” Of The Year Within The Best First 10 Days Of Dul-Hijjah | Sh. Said Rageah

The reason that these 10 days are so massive and so rewarding is in them; We have day of arafah like in Ramadan we have laitual Qadr. The messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, He summarized the whole Hajj and he said Hajj is Arafah.

The messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the day that is promised is the day qiyamah and the day that is witnessed is the day of Arafah and the day is Jumah. And the day of Arafah there is one hour. If this hour passes by a mumin that is asking Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala for khair (good), Allah would answer the dua of that person.

This hour comes to a servant of Allah while he is asking Allah to protect him from a certain evil then Allah will protect that from him. If you are outside of the hajj and you fast the day of Arafah, then Allah will forgive two years of your sins.
