Don’t Need Someone Above Us To Tell This! Hamza Ibn Isa VS Atheist | Speakers Corner

Standards that are relative in nature. So once you recognize the first premise that human beings have a tendency to recognize an absolute standard, the second premise should push you towards the recognition that they have to be there for an absolute standard.

And the only absolute standard that a person can recognize is the greatest conceivable being, because without that, it relativizes morality and that goes against the first premise, through time recognize that absolute standards are required in order to live in harmony.

it’s within the human being  to recognize truths that we would then define as being Just.

Human beings have a tendency of recognizing a standard that is more towards absolutism than relativism, and that absolutism can only lead a person to or should, should lead a person more towards the possibility for the existence of an absolute being, as opposed to trillions and trillions of beings that essentially use a relative standard.

Three Main Categories Of The Prophecies Of Muhammad ﷺ About The End of Times | Mufti Menk

The reason that we have been created is made clear by the Creator Himself. And we do know that life is very short on Earth, but the life after death is far longer. In fact, it is eternal.

We know that everything predicted and prophesied by Muhammad (pbuh) has either come true during his lifetime or later on or is about to come true.

Another prophecy of the Prophet (pbuh) where he says there will come a time when nothing nwill remain of Islam except its name and nothing will remain of the Quran except its drawing.

‘The prophecy that the clothing would degenerate. If we take a look today, they will tell you that part of civilization is actually to undress.

The less you wear, the more liberated you are’.

Islam teaches us purity. Islam says, you will be judged because of who you are, how your character and conduct is, and how your relationship with your Maker is.

You will be judged by your contribution to humankind and your dedication to the maker of humankind, Subhanallah. That’s Islam.

Remember one thing, you need to live in Islam.

The Best Words To Remove Jealousy From The Heart! Mufti Menk

The most important organ that we have is the heart. The heart is closely connected to the mind. So if you have a clean heart, it actually affects the mind and the mind begins to do things that are correct and pleasing to Allah Almighty. Because the heart is clean.

To cleanse the heart is the duty of every Muslim. How do I clean my heart? What should I do to clean my heart?

What is your connection with the word of Allah? Do you make an effort with it? If not, your heart cannot be pure. It’s impossible that’s the word of the owner of the hearts. And He’s the one who turns the hearts.

If you don’t have a connection with His words, His reminders, His warnings, then how can you expect your heart to be clean? So if you don’t read the Quran and you don’t want to know its meaning and it irritates you when people tell you what the Quran says, then you have a diseasedheart that requires attention.

If you don’t want to take Allah’s reminder, whose reminder do you want?

Sometimes you might think you have everything. Are you sure that’s not only material items you’re talking about?

When you don’t have Salat Al Fajr, you have zero.

What Brought Us Into Existence! Mansur VS Atheist Couple | Speakers Corner

We know we exist. We are self-aware. So anything that has brought into existence must be self-aware. So what things could have brought us into existence?

The Answer is quite simple actually, which you know already. The fact that you exist, you know there is an existence reality. The fact that you and I exist, There is a necessary existence. There is a necessary existence because we are all contingent.

It is such a powerful argument for the existence of God that it is something that you don’t need to have a PhD to understand. If everything is dependent, you cannot explain the existence of dependent things by itself.

So a dependent thing which is dependent on their existence couldn’t have existed by themselves. So you need something that is not contingent or dependent. And that thing is something called the necessary existence, the necessary being who is independent, who is absolute by necessity.

So that is what we call our Creator, because we are a creation, we came into existing and that Creator is self-aware,

You have all the time for everything else, but you have no time for your own existence. And time to find out the meaning.

Every part of your body, do they have a purpose? Your eyes do they hear? Did you decide when you were an embryo?

How to Fast 6 days of shawwal Answering 3 frequently Asked Questions | Dr. Omar Suleiman

I wanted to summarize all of the positions or all of the questions about Shawwal. And of course the basis of that is the Hadith of the Prophet (pbuh), He said that whoever fasts in Ramadan and then follows up Ramadan with six days from Shawwal, it is as if they have fasted an entire lifetime to it.

If you feel like it’s going to be tough and you might miss out on the six days of Shawwal, if you try to make up the days, especially if there are a lot of days, then make the priority in sha Allah to fast the six days first and then make up those days afterwards ‘Allah’s will’ up until Shaban of the next year.

‘Deen Al-Fitrah’ Born With An Innate Inclination Of Tawheed! Raihan VS Atheist | Speakers Corner

Heartbroken💔! Know The Permanent Solution | Mufti Menk

We all suffer at some point or another, heartbreak or things do not go exactly as we had planned.

Allah says those whom, when calamity strikes them or something negative strikes them.

Allah also speaks about testing us by not giving us things that we desperately want. Sometimes you desperately want something and Allah wants to delay it a little bit, but you want it urgently. Sometimes Allah doesn’t want to give you something you desperately want. And sometimes there is a huge barrier between you and something and Allah wants to give it to you. Allah will give it to you. And if there is no barrier between you and something and Allah does not want to give it to you, it’s not going to happen.

So we need to attach with Allah and to Allah. You must realize Allah does one of a few things. He either grants you what you want later on, or He replaces what He has taken away from you with something far better than that.

This worldly life is temporary. So for us to think that we will have permanent solution to our problems, that’s not possible. The only permanent solution is when you get paradise.

You just need to know how to navigate, Number one, through your crisis. Number two is to call out to Allah, who is the owner of the heart of that child as well.

Make This Du’a For A Good Ending! Laylatul Qadr | Eye Opening Reminder

Dua For A good ending

What comes down on Laylatul Qadr is everything that will happen of that year in terms of the recording of your sustenance, what you’re going to gain that year, your rizq, your sustenance is decreed. What will happen in terms of your lifespan, the events of the year that will come?

Ibn Abbas (ra) says that on that night (Laylatul Qadr), who’s going to pass away that year comes down.

That’s why, as you are in the end of Ramadan, one of the most blessed things

We’re not a people who make dua for long lives just for the sake of living long. We are people who make dua for Allah to take us from this life when it is best for us, when we’re in the best state of Imam /faith.

Because there is no rizq that will be decreed that is more precious than a good ending.

we say, oh, Allah, take me away when you are pleased with me.

Two Profound Scenes On Laylatul Qadr | Dr. Omar Suleiman

There are two scenes on Laylatul Qadr that are profound and engage the Angels in a way that they are not engaged at any other time of the year.

The first scene is the scene of hope, the scene of traffic where you literally have Angels transferring between the heavens and the Earth, descending upon the various  Masajid, descending upon the various homes, descending upon every individual that is engaged in a state of dhikr, in the state of the remembrance of Allah and taking those names back up to Allah.

As Ibn Kathir (rah) says, what comes down on that night is everything that will happen of that year in terms of the recording of your sustenance, what you’re going to gain that year. So as you’re doing your accounting for the year and you’re making all sorts of your strategic decisions of what you want to earn that year, just as Allah decrees, every drop of rain that will fall, Allah on that night decrees every single Penny that will go into your account, your rizq, your sustenance is decreed. What will happen in terms of your lifespan, the events of the year that will come.

Do These 3 Things To Increase Your Rizq With The Blessings Of The Almighty | Mufti Menk

Mostly people think others have more money than they actually have. But anyway, what is of greater interest is people want the money for themselves.

Allah Almighty says that certain things have been beautified for man as a test. So money is one of them.

There is no point in having wealth that comes without blessing. There is no point of having so much when it comes with you having lost your connection with the Almighty or no happiness, no contentment, no good health.

So how would we be able to earn wealth and sustenance and at the same time ensure that it’s coming with the blessings of the Almighty?

Point number one: Your five daily prayers and bear patience upon it.

The second thing you need and lots of contentment and goodness and happiness and even multiplication in wealth, you must ensure that you seek the forgiveness of Allah on a daily basis.

And the last point I want to make mention of if you would like Baraka and Blessings, my brothers and sisters, ensure that your character and conduct is amazing. Don’t hurt a soul.

Worship Allah alone and remember to treat everyone else with utmost respect.
