#MuftiMenk mentions of the hadith “’Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The two Rak’ah before the dawn (#Fajr) #prayer are better than this #world and all it contains.” [Muslim] Another narration goes: “The two Rak’ah before the dawn (Fajr) prayer are dearer to me than the whole world.”
Mufti Menk Quotes in this clip “The weight of two units is not the same when it comes to Zuhr, Asr Maghrib and Isha. Fajr is much more heavier, why, it requires a bigger effort than any other Salah. That’s the reason Allah says I don’t reward you equally for that which is easy and that which is hard that you get a bigger reward”.
#MuftiMenk delivered a beautiful #lecture on the words of call (#adhan or #azan) for #prayer in #Islam.
Mufti Menk Quotes in this lectures “when you say Allahu Akbar you’re actually handing over or acknowledging that Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala is in absolute control of every aspect of existence sometimes things happen to us that seem negative and you’re getting frustrated and irritated; Allah knows what is best for you. He is the greatest, Allahu Akbar”.
In this video clip , #MuftiMenk makes mention of the #Ramadan verse for #fasting from the Quran
Mufti Menk Quotes in this clip, “Look at the prescription when the doctor tells you stay away from that which is high in cholesterol; we make sure like gospel- we follow it because we don’t want to have a blood test showing us that the cholesterol is a little bit high. Similarly, you have spiritual cholesterol that affects you and Allah has given a spiritual remedy for that. It is a prescription -prescribed and guess what He says about the course; He says make sure you finish the course”…
In this Friday Jummah kuthbah (Sermon), #MuftiMenk points up why Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala makes #Hajj at one time; everyone has to go in the month of Dhul Hijjah to Mina and then to Arafah and why Allah decides that it has to be at a certain time when it comes to Hajj at certain place; Because He wants us to be together as an Ummah, He wants us to recognize each other to realize that you are but a number to realize that the arrogance, the haughtiness, the pride ,the wealth, the authority, the looks, everything becomes irrelevant you are in the saf (row) in salah, you are standing with whoever is next to you, you do not choose. So that’s how the objective of fulfilling Hajj (pilgrimage: fifth pillar of Islam) is a manifestation of #unity and a message for #humanity through achieving Hajj Mabrur (the signs of the accepted Hajj by Allah when one’s life is changed by quitting bad habits after performing hajj)
In response to emails regarding not performing #salah on time because of #makeup #MuftiMenk said 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 you know what? Cut it, cut it….
“Don’t waste so much money on that which is the pressure of the world; be yourself, Islam teaches you to love what Allah has made you with to love your appearance to love what Allah has given you. You don’t need to hide your identity so much”. – Mufti Menk
Why and how to package #salah (prayer) in the most beautiful way with best #tips were mentioned in this clip.
“We don’t need to wait for punishment to come down before we change for the sake of Allah, learn to read your salatal isha, learn to read your salatal-fajr on time with pleasure; with pleasure would distinguish between those who are fulfilling Salah because they have to do it and those who are fulfilling it because they want to do it” #MuftiMenk
