My Life Has Changed For This Incident! Mufti Menk

Don’t delay the preparation for the meeting with Allah because that’s what might just happen.

Allah’s knowledge encompasses absolutely everything. Right now, He’s given you capacities and powers. Use them and get closer to Him.

Allah is looking at your heart, your deeds, your worship, your compassion, the softness of the soul, your intention, your seriousness, and the way you’re moving forward. And Allah says, You know what? For this person is paradise.

The most content of people on earth are not those who did whatever they wanted, not even one of them. The most content people on earth are those who discipline themselves.

They got up at a certain time, they worked hard, they respected everyone, they fulfilled rules and regulations, and they followed by the book. They are the happiest, the most content in all honesty.

Allah Promises You This As Soon As You Realise What You Are Doing Is Wrong! Mufti Menk

Allah says, We want to reward you. Allah says, We’ll give you a month of Ramadan every year to learn discipline. Subhanallah.

The month of forgiveness; A few days are remaining. Achieve that forgiveness.

Allah Says, O people, Allah is addressing the whole world, not just Muslims. Indeed, the promise of Allah is the truth.

The promise when Allah has promised you whatever He has promised you is the truth.

Allah says, Do not let this worldly life deceive you because our promise is the truth.

The world will offer you so many things. Always ask yourself, Is this pleasing to Allah?

Allah says, No problem, man, you’re allowed to love wealth, but to a degree where it does not exceed the love of Allah.

Don’t let yourself be deceived by this temporary world.

Why Does The Quran say Not To Raise Your Voice Sound Like The Braying Of Donkeys! Mufti Menk

Character and conduct is something that Allah Almighty has enshrined and shown us an example in the beautiful Prophet Muhammad, may peace be upon him. In fact, when Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, was asked about the character of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, she said his character was an embodiment of the Quran.

Similarly, when the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, spoke himself, he says, The best from amongst you are those with best character. Similarly, he said, The best from amongst you are those who are best to their wives or their family members.

Islam has come about with teaching you to worship your Maker alone. Then what Allah Almighty wants you to do once you have fulfilled the rights of his, of the Maker, you fulfill what is known as the rights of the creatures, the worshipers,..

Before you say something, think about how you can say it and look at the options you have and choose the best possible option. That is when you’re a true believer.

Do You Feel Perhaps Allah Will Not Forgive For Having Certain Doings | Ustadh Ali Hammuda

Ikhlas (Sincerity) is a cause of erasing sins, even the Most Major of them. Ikhlas (Sincerity) melts away a lifetime’s worth of sins.

Ikhlas (Sincerity) is our savior in the hereafter, when you will hear the announcement, Allah said on the Day of Judgment, this day the truthfulness of the truthful ones will be benefited by it. That is the day the people of Ikhlas (Sincerity) will shine.

Don’t give up. Ikhlas (Sincerity) isn’t about removing insincerity from your heart forever and eliminating it. It’s about managing it and realizing it’s an ongoing struggle. It’s a battle that in of itself is a sign of sincerity that you’re scared of it.

That’s How Allah Is Calling You To Respond To Him | Mufti Menk

One of the methods that Allah uses to bring us closer to Him is by inflicting us with something we perceive as negative and if you came closer to Allah because of any one of those things or anything negative, It was the blessing of Allah and it’s the mercy of Allah and the gift of Allah.

But if Allah blessed you and gave you and did everything for you, and you passed with flying colors and you’ve got authority and you’ve got good looks and you’ve got lots of knowledge, and you’ve got lots of this and whatever else it may be, if that drifted you away from Allah, it cannot be the mercy of Allah.

So understand the favors of Allah and let it bring you closer to Allah.

Get acquainted with Allah during your days of ease. Get close to Allah, when nothing is wrong in your life, everything is smooth sailing, then go close to Allah. So what will happen when the days are tough for you?

Allah will come to you.

Only One Way To Remedy Your Sadness Taught By Allah! Mufti Menk

When people are sad, they do different things to deal with the sadness.

If a person is void of faith and connection with Allah, they do something that makes them more sad.

But Allah Almighty teaches us that the remedy for sadness is a long term commitment.

Even if someone were to throw the whole world at you in terms of materialistic items it will not eradicate that sadness.

When you are happy, remember Allah and ask Allah protect me from anxiety and sadness. The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, used to make duah, supplicate, call out to Allah, oh Allah protect me from sadness, anxiety, protect me from my miserliness.

Never let your happiness disconnect you from Allah and never let your sadness disconnect you from Allah either.

So sometimes when you’re getting a lot of things, it could be something negative, when? If you’ve been driven away from Allah by what you received.

That’s why when you get good things; it must lead you to become a better person.

The best of us, from among those who have been blessed by Allah with the worldly things, is he or she who is humble, humble.


Seize Five Opportunities Before These Are Overtaken By Five Situations | Mufti Menk

The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him has taught us to seize opportunities that are in front of us. But the problem with men; we don’t notice the opportunity.

Listen in life, There will be situations that you must make the most of. They may never come back.

The Prophet peace be upon him said seize 5 opportunities before they are lost, before they’re overtaken by another five situations.

This is a reminder from the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, to all of us.

Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Take advantage of five before five: your youth before your old age, your health before your illness, your riches before your poverty, your free time before your work, and your life before your death.”

Bearing in mind when you make the lives of others easy, Allah makes your life easier.

Allah Never Rejects Your Repentance But Know What The Scariest Thing Is! Mufti Menk

When we don’t remember Allah at all; A day passes, two days pass, three days pass and we haven’t even thought of Allah, We haven’t spent the moment with Allah but we spent hours on end at work and doing so and so whatever else we’re doing without remembering Allah, that’s what’s scary.

If whatever has happened has drawn you slightly closer to Allah, it’s not the anger of Allah, it’s the pleasure of Allah. It’s the gift of Allah upon you.

Hope, hope is a gift of Allah. if you don’t understand the mercy of Allah, you’re never going to come out of your mess. Allah loves you and Allah will continue loving you and I love made you and Allah knows about you and He knows your struggles. He knows where you’ve been and He knows where you want to be and He knows that you might be moving very slowly and He also knows that your graph might dip now and again on its way up.

But inshallah, we need to have the hope in the mercy of Allah,

Don’t give up, the day you give up, that’s the day that you’ve lost. Allah never gives up, never for Allah, no matter how bad you’ve been, no matter where you have gone, it’s a flick you need to ask Allah’s forgiveness. He’s wiped out all the bad, all of it, completely gone.

And if you make an error and go back and slip again, come back and seek the forgiveness of Allah again, never give up.

The Amana Which Is Being Betrayed Frequently & How To Stop It | Ustad Ali Hammuda

Allah said, Allah instructs you that you are to return the trust to the rightful owners of those trusts. And that when you judge between people, you judge with justice, how excellent is that which Allah instructs you to do. Allah Almighty is ever hearing and ever seeing.

Our Prophet’s (pbuh) life was defined by the upholding of Amana, the restoring of trust to their owners. And they knew him as “Al-Amin”, a trustworthy individual. He advocated it, he called towards it, applied it.

And he told us that towards the end of time, one of the signs of the Day of Judgment will be people will lose trust.

Alrazi, he said, in his tafseer, when you interact, he says, you are dealing with one of three categories; either you are dealing with your Lord, or either you are dealing with people, or either you are dealing with yourself.

He said, and a Muslim has to uphold the trust in every one of those three categories.

It affects us every second of our life. And there will be heavy questions to expect on the Day of Judgment.

Do These Stop Your Humble Submission To Creator_ How Your Look After 24 Hours After Death | Ustad Ali Hammuda

Get to know yourself, come to grips with your deficiency. This will immediately, by the permission of Allah, put us on the pathway to Khushoo’/ humble submission to know who you are. Because when you recognize the majesty of Allah, you automatically recognize the lowly state of man.

Every aspect of Islam is easy if you manage to keep your ego at bay. if you acknowledge that there is an ego problem and then you keep that ego at bay, get to know your deficiency. When you speak about people, speak about them in a positive way. When you speak about yourself, acknowledge your weaknesses. This is the essence of humble submissiveness.

Our predecessors were like that. They realized and acknowledged their weaknesses. So Allah blessed them with humble submissiveness .

it wasn’t for Allah veiling our faults, we would have been exposed, utterly exposed. People who recognized their worth before Allah, So He (Allah) raised them.

One of the greatest ways fostering humble submissiveness in our hearts is recognizing the might of Allah through a structured study and a recitation of the Quran.

Number two, through coming to groups with your deficiencies, remembering them every day.
