Quran ⚠ Were They Created From Nothingness! Mansur & Young atheist visitors | Speakers Corner

When we say existential questions, what we’re referring to is some fundamental questions; human beings will inevitably ask at some point in their lives when they realize, you know, what are they doing here? Where do they come from? What’s going to happen after death, Right?

All of us agree on this, that we want the better of the human race as well as anything else within our Cosmos that we can see. So when it comes to being compassionate, having empathy, having sympathy, tolerance, mutual respect, understanding, I think we all agree that this is what should be the basis of all living in this world.

As A Muslim, we believe we are not here because of a coincidence or a mere chance that we are here. We are here with a purpose by design. We have been put here with a reason and a purpose by Someone Who has created.

So we call this someone the Creator, to fulfill a purpose and how we arrived to this conclusion that we are a creation of a Creator is the question that we might be able to now have a discussion about in terms of what are the tools that we have at our disposal, which we can use to answer some of those questions.

Absolute nothingness is a conceptual understanding in which there was nothing. Can you imagine there was at one point in the past, absolute nothingness like that?

if we understand, at least conceptually what this is, that means this nothingness doesn’t have anything within it to do anything, to create anything, to produce anything, to manufacture anything, to bring about existence of anything else. Because simply it’s the absence of everything, in general in our physics that we understand to do something, nothingness will result in nothingness all the time.

No matter how far you go back, there will be eternally something in existence. And as a Muslim, I do find that the Quran actually mentions this point for us to reflect on it, were they created from nothingness?  Quran:Ayah at-Tur (The Mount, The Mountain) ch.52. V.35

if I know for sure that I am here created by a creator for a reason and I do not fulfill that purpose, then what’s going to be my outcome?

Success in this life; It’s not only knowing who’s the best girlfriend or wife or a partner, what is the best job, what is the best restaurant? What’s the best thing to wear? Success in this life also means being successful in your purpose in this life.

So knowing these questions about our very purpose of life not only gives you the tranquility, peace and comfort in your heart, but it then gives you an outlook to live in this life. And you’ll find that outlook is one of working in harmony of this universe because the creator did not create this universe where everyone can just go and plunder and loot and and terrorize and oppressed people.

The creator wants us to live in harmony and to live in peace and tranquility, but also fulfill the rights of God as well as the rights of creation, just like the creation has rights over us.

if I know that knowing that I am a creation of a creator with certain obligations and prohibitions, I cannot wrong you even though I had the ability to wrong you. I can not commit oppression and injustice on you, even though I might have the power to do so.

 

 

 

 

Masjid Al-Aqsa: Has Allah Abandoned The Ummah Of The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)! Ustad Asim Khan

In Palestine, Palestinians are suffering. We’ve seen, we’ve seen the bombs raining down on Gaza and we’ve seen the most sacred, the third most sacred place in the entire world being desecrated in the month of Ramadan.

The most sacred of all places after Mecca and Medina, Jerusalem:  Masjidul-Al Aqsa This is a place that has been mentioned in the Quran is being blessed.

It was the place where we used to face to pray, The first qibla /direction of the Muslims; Masjid al-Aqsa And that is why it should be a place of sacredness inside the hearts of every Muslim.

One of the ways we have become confused at what we see of this Ummah, that there is so much suffering and oppression is we see the political instability in the Muslim world as a sign that Allah has abandoned us. And on top of that, we see that when the oppressors and the enemies of Islam are strong and have military might, that somehow that they are the ones in the right and they are the ones blessed. But this is not correct.

A sign of political might; is not a sign of Allah’s blessing and love. And also being military weak and politically unstable is not a sign that Allah (swt) has abandoned us.

Allah says in the Quran, The ultimate victory is for who? It is for those who fear Allah (swt).

 

Don’t Mess Up Your Attained Ramadan Reward On Eid Day | Mufti Menk And Dr. Omar Suleiman

Who deserves to have Eid? It’s only those who took the month of Ramadan seriously, Allah says in order that you complete the entire period So Allah gives you the day of Eid because He’s guided you. If you have followed them, you deserve a day of Eid.

If you did not respect the month of Ramadan, you don’t deserve a day of Eid. Make sure you don’t mess up the reward that you’ve attained throughout the month of Ramadan.

When you’re dressed appropriately, it doesn’t mean here is the day of eid, I remove my appropriate dress. I covered up so nicely. In Islam, clothing is there to cover. in other cultures, sometimes clothing is there to reveal. Ask yourself, am I clothing in order to cover or my clothing in order to show and reveal.

Allah says, when Ramadan ends, don’t go back to the old you That was before Ramadan, but rather maintain that goodness in that balance and understand I need to improve myself. I must do something better than I did before Ramadan, after Ramadan.

We thank Allah by what He has given to us, by what He has done for us, by Ebadh / by fasting. But celebration is very unique in Islam; the idea of Eid is very unique in Islam. Our two Eids in Islam is that they both come after worship, they both come after sacrifice.

When you sacrifice for Allah (swt), then you have the joy of reaping the acceptance of Allah (swt), the reward in that sense in this life, and you have the greater joy of seeing the reward of it in the next life.

Our Eids mark our own efforts; they come after our own efforts and then depending on the mercy of Allah (swt), celebrating the mercy of Allah (swt).

Allah says, call Me, I will answer you, call Me, I will answer you. The Prophet (pbuh) said call Allah with the certainty in His response.

It’s celebrating the mercy of Allah that ya Allah, you allowed us to worship You.

We celebrate our Eids not in heedlessness, not with disobedience of Allah (swt), We celebrate our Eid with recitation, with celebration, counting on the greater celebration with Allah (swt).

Simple These 3 Things To Uphold The Spirit Of Ramadan After Ramadan | Ustad Asim Khan

You do an Act of worship; does it automatically mean that Allah has accepted it?

Allah says He only accepts from those who are righteous, meaning not only do you have to do the good deed; you have to do it for the right reason. When those two things come together, you’re doing the good deed with the right reason. Then it is accepted by Allah (swt).

In fact, some of the scholars, they say that the tail end of Ramadan is the sign from Allah, whether the whole Ramadan has been accepted.

When you see your life in the Grand scale of the hereafter, you think that you only live for the blink of an eye. Subanallah, In the same way Ramadan comes and goes to teach us that your life will come and go as well. What then are you doing to take advantage of these moments?

Ramadan as a training camp wants that inspires you to be a better version of yourself.

So there are three things that you should continue to carry on after Ramadan

The first one is your connection with the Book of Allah (Swt).

The Second thing: fasting, fastingis an Act of worship not confined to the month of Ramadan. Don’t we know that the prophet (pbuh) used to fast every Monday and Thursday? And he did so because he said, my deeds are presented to Allah on those days, the Angels present our good deeds to Allah (swt), And he said, I want to be in a state of fasting when those deeds are presented.

And the last thing is, what, is your Salah, Salah, Salah, Salah.

If there’s nothing you can do in your life, the last thing should be is my prayer. I cannot let go of that, subhanAllah. It should be the last thing that you ever let go of. Nothing should come between you and your salah.

Are You Feeling The Pain For The Masjid Al-Aqsa! Mohammed Ali | Speakers Corner

Allah (swt) says in the Quran: Verily, the believers are Brothers.

If your brother in Islam is being harmed, if your mother is being harmed, your sister is being harmed, If your child is being harmed, would you stay silent? You wouldn’t stay silent, would you?

Our brothers and sisters in Islam are being harassed by these cowards of the occupation forces.

Allah (swt) says in the Quran; What s wrong with you? Why are you not standing in the way of Allah against those who are oppressing women, children?……

Then Allah (swt) says those who believe stand in the way of Allah and those who disbelieve stand in the way of the devil.

We should spread awareness about this. We should support their own brothers and sisters. If you see anyone talking about this, share it, like it, let other people know.

Now, where are these hypocrites of the media? Whenever a Muslim does something, You hear them speaking about it, now we don’t hear him speaking about what’s happening in Palestine.

The prophet (pbuh) said the true believers are like one body; If a part of the body gets hurt, the rest of the body feels the pain. Are you feeling the pain?

The prophet Muhammed (pbuh) said, None of you will be a true believer unless he loves for his brother while he loves for himself.

You love security for yourself, don’t you? You love to pray in the mosque in peace. You love to eat your meal in iftar, You love to sit down in your house without a bomb coming in your head, don’t you? You love to do that.

So why you don’t love it for your other brothers and sisters as well?

This is an issue of Aqidah / Creed. This is our mosque; Masjid Al-Aqsa. This is not an issue of just Muslims being prosecuted. But it’s also an issue of Creed. Who doesn’t defend Masjid Al-Aqsa today, he will not defend Makkah If something happens. He will not defend Medina, If something happens, there today today, we can see who are the true believers for who are the false believers.

Did You Know These About Laylatul Qadr| Mufti Menk

At any given time, Ramadan or out of Ramadan, a believer chooses to be in the right place and always asks Allah to guide him or her to be in the right place at the right time.

Then this evening as the Sun set, we entered into one of the odd nights from among the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Did you know that laylatul qadr could be any night of Ramadan to start with, from the beginning to the end?

But there is a greater likelihood that it is one of the last 10 nights any one of them. So we’re taught take every night seriously, the dua if I were to ask you that would be most loved by Allah on Laylatul Qadr:

o Allah, you love to forgive. You are forgiving, you love to forgive. So forgive me.

Don’t ever let the night pass without having sought the forgiveness of Allah.

Your life is Transforming is changing. You’re feeling like a rejuvenated person. That’s Laylatul Qadr.

So remember that it’s the mercy of Allah, and not only this night, all of the 10 nights of Ramadan.

Allah Gifted Laylatul Qadr To Prophet ﷺ For The Ummah And A Narration Of Catching It | Dr. Omar Suleiman

When we look at the prophet (pbuh) and his relationship with Allah and our blessing and good fortune of being from the Ummah of Rasulullah (pbuh) There are two things that Rasulullah (pbuh) always does on our behalf.

He always advocates for Allah (swt) to lessen our burden and he always advocates for Allah (swt) to increase our blessing.

Imam Hasan al-Basri (rah) tells us about our Messenger (pbuh) anytime Allah gives him, the prophet (pbuh) thinks how does that translate into giving to the ummmah?

The prophet (Pbuh) wanted something for his Ummah. So Allah gave him Laylat-al-Qadr;  Allah (swt) gave him Laylat-al-Qadr as a gift to the Prophet (pbu)’s ummah. The Night of Glory is better than a thousand months.

for some people, laylatul qadr is not even a thousand months. It’s thousands of months. For some people, the Tasbeeh of Ramadan is not even times a thousand. It’s times thousands up toward Allah (swt) decides to reward his servants with and that comes back to each and every single one of us calling out to Allah and Subhanallah you connect that …… better than a thousand months.

 

When And How To Prepare To Catch Best Night Laylatul Qadr During Last 10 Nights Of Ramadan | Mufti Menk

In these 10 nights there is one night; There is more in terms of value than a thousand months, which is 83.33 years. And Allah speaks about the night of decree is better than a thousand months. That’s Allah (swt) speaking about it.

The Prophet (pbuh) says search for the night of Qadr or the night of decree in one of the odd nights from among the last 10 nights of this month of Ramadan.

It is one of the best seasons that you can have. The primary aim is to achieve the forgiveness of Allah.

One might ask, well, which are more blessed; Is it the first 10 days of dhul hijjah or these ones? The first 10 days have the most value from all the days of the year, Right? In terms of a season, those are 10 days in a row. Here, It’s the night that we are being spoken about the last 10 nights.

Imagine, when we meet with Allah, We’re going to be presenting our deeds and it’s for ourselves and Allah is there.

The last 10 nights of Ramadan, Become conscious nof what you’re doing. What you’re saying. Do you read the Quran? Do you fulfill your five daily prayers? Start that this is the preparation of your vehicle for the main day of the race, Right? So my Salah needs to be in order. My dress needs to be in order. My recitation of the Quran needs to be in order. My relationships need to be in order.

Seek the forgiveness of Allah even prior to these 10 days.

There is a beautiful quality that Allah loves; when you forgive others, Allah will forgive you.

What Make Laylatul Qadr Meaningless! Barrier To Your Accepted Dua | Shaykh Omar Suleiman

We know the Hadith of the Messenger (pbuh) that a person comes on the Day of Judgment and they have their prayer. They have their fasting, they have their siam. But the point is, despite all of that, you cursed this person. You backbited this person. You slandered this person, you hit this person, and you denigrated this person.

So respecting Rights of Fellow Humans (Huqooq ul Ibad) the people that you hurt line up and they take your good deeds until you have nothing left. Laylatul Qadr  is better than 1,000 months. 50,000 months of good deeds gone because of the people that you hurt with this.

It’s a warning from the prophet (pbuh); the barriers to our good deeds being accepted or being profitable on the Day of Judgment.

As we’re getting into the last 10, we need to make tawbah from those things that might take away everything from the last 10; your good deeds going to waste because you’re not reforming your akhlaq, you’re not reforming your manners. And so if you want your Ibadat to be accepted, you have to reform your akhlaq.

If you want your Act of worship to be accepted, you have to reform your manners. Laylatul Qadr is the night of Decree. So you want something to happen in the next year? That’s your night. That’s the night that your next year is going to be decreed in the next 10 nights. Your next year is going to be written down.

When you messed up, turn back to Allah and put in the place of your sin a good deed.

The insistences on poor manners make our Ibadat meaningless. You’re insisting on your ways and then you’re insisting Allah answer your supplications. It doesn’t work that way with Allah (swt), and on what basis are you going to be responded to?

Ramadan resolutions mean difficult, difficult, difficult sacrifices. Remove the means that are causing you to constantly fall in the sins over and over and over again. every one of us has to look deep, deep, deep, deep, deep. Because when you show Allah (swt) that you’re going to insist on these ways and you’re not willing to make those sacrifices, which are the barrier between you and your supplication.

Let’s hold ourselves accountable and Let’s make some difficult sacrifices. And that’s how you get your duas answered.
