The Prophet (ﷺ) Came With 4 Missions | Powerful Lessons | Shaykh Hasan Ali

The prophet (saw) had four things to give to the companions to transform their lives from the ignorance to the enlightened life in the Surah Al-Jumu’ah [62:2] of the Quran.

The Quran itself is the biggest source of knowledge; it’s not enough just to know Arabic. You have to know what Allah meant by those Arabic words. So this is another whole section of knowledge, which the prophets (saw) passed onto the sahaba.

It’s not just enough to recite the Quran. We need to know what those specific meanings of the Quran are sent to us.

But if you don’t know when to apply that knowledge, where to apply that knowledge; You don’t know how much of the knowledge to apply. Then you basically hit another big rock.

When to apply that knowledge, where to apply that knowledge, how much of that knowledge to apply, to whom to apply that knowledge to these all hikmah, and purify heart by removing illnesses like arrogance, pride, jealousy in heart to function that knowledge well

So our attitude and so on inside needs to change to save ourselves from the days of ignorance, of the days of jahiliyyah by gaining the spiritual cleanliness.

So the prophet (saw) came to recite the verses, He came to teach us the book, the meaning of the book, he taught us how much to apply what not to apply from his Sunnah, to have his wisdom of knowing where to apply, to whom to apply to, and most importantly after that is for our own spiritual cleanliness of the heart, the prophet salallahu alaihe Salam also gave us that teaching that was supposed to clean our inside.

Allah Says To Have The Key Four Qualities To Be Real Successful | Ustad Asim Khan

Surah Al-Asr, despite it being so short,  It has a very profound meaning; in terms of a general sense some of the scholars they say that the overall meaning of Surah Al-Asr  Is a message about success; the definition of what real successes And what real failure looks like.

Ideas of success whether they come from, do they come from a reading the Quran, listening to the words of the prophet (saw) or have they been fed to us from the media, had been fed to us through Society our environment, you know, and if that is the case, how does it stack up to The definition of success given to us for example Surah Al-Asr?

Look at this Surah, Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala Beginning by  taking an oath in order Usually the meaning of an oath is to raise our estimation about what is to be sent to catch our attention and to show emphasis About what is going to be mentioned thereafter.

Allah’s perspective on things is the correct perspective, is the only true perspective.

Allah says, the reason why they’re not included amongst those that are in khusr/in loss is because they do four things: Yes, these four key qualities define our understanding of who is a good person.

Do we still class them as a good person from a point of view Islam? and the answer is given in this Surah.

So the definition of who is successful is based on these if these four things are encapsulated in a person’s belief and character and lifestyles then they are considered to be a good person based on the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah of the prophet (saw).

 

To be a successful human being, to be a good person, a good Muslim part of it is going out there and being very open about your faith with other people in sha Allah,

Embody four characteristics: Faith, Good Deeds, openly propagating Islam and being steadfast on the consequences of all of this

Reflecting On Our Intentions And Actions Recipe For Jannah With A Powerful Dua | Shaykh Abu Bilal Sanel

Today’s khutbah  I dedicate for ourselves. Mahasabha/ reflecting, pondering about your own situation because we all know that the betterment of the ummah starts right here. Right here, at yourself in your heart.

We are good criticizing everyone around us. But Honestly, I think we struggle criticizing ourselves. Whereas, we see that the sahaba radi Allahu anhum, they were very very critical with themselves.

The recipe of a shahabi was in that story was that he was reflecting upon his own deeds and his own actions every single night before he went to sleep and his recipe for jannah That he used to forgive every single one of the Muslims who wronged him during that day.

But I was too comfortable.

Look into the mirror and say what am I doing? Do something.

If Prophet Muhammad  Muhammad salallahu alaihe wasalam was to visit you today. What would you do? Would you be proud……

The change in the Ummah starting our houses in and if we can’t reflect upon our own situation, We have no right to criticize anyone else.

Remember 6 Names Of Allah For Overcoming Addiction To Save Your Family!

We are Muslims. This is the greatest thing that Allah has given us in this world. We have a covenant with Allah that we must fulfill.

This Amana, this trust that Allah has given us and that we have accepted.

Focus on one aspect, summarized by six names of Allah; As-Sami’ul-Basir, Al Aleem Ul-kabeer,

AR-RAQEEB, ASH-SHAHEED,

These names of Allah, these six names of Allah: they are the Pinnacle of perfection. They are the Pinnacle of beauty. Yet they have in them demands for us. They require from us actions in our lives.

They require from us to be regulated and governed in every single aspect and moment of Our Lives. We need to live by these names.

Allah is with us, He is so far in our eyes because of His majesty yet He’s so close.

This will make your life fruitful, you won’t understand the way Allah works.  His wisdom is beyond you.

What is this demand from us?

But this is a deed that we need to focus on for the rest of our lives and it never stops and it never changes.

That deed is Muraqabatullah. That is being ever-watchful and conscious of Allah. This is the state of a Believer at all times, no matter what happens around the world of what happens in his life, what he’s going through? What we are going through doesn’t matter.

It is a constant remembrance, a constant state of being that you know, the Allah is fully aware of what I am doing. What I am looking at, what I am saying, how I’m behaving, how I deal with this one that one and everyone, and it never stops. This is Islam.

This is what it means to believe in Allah with these names.

How the good deeds are obliterated, just Ponder on that for a moment from the hadith; so don’t become oblivious.

We’re living in the 21st century in the UK. Where the morals and the manners of Life have decayed and gone. Let’s be real and work together to save our families, save our marriage and save our children.

So, read our society and especially our households and our Ummah from this evil that is destroying our families.

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.

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.
