Never Ever Say It For The Ramadan! Mufti Menk

It is only if something is the most important event in the year or month in the year that we will be speaking in advance regarding the preparation of the month of Ramadan.

To prepare for the month of Ramadan, you need to start off by thinking about what it is, how blessed the month is.

Happiness and contentment is achieved primarily by understanding Allah’s plan. By understanding, you have to worship Allah alone. You have to build a relationship with the one whom you are going to go back to one day helplessly. Helplessly. I’m going to go back to Allah.

That’s what I want to say today, that your preparation for Ramadan is a commitment from now to say, I’ve started it.

When Did Allah Say Your Son’s Wife Should Be Your Choice | Mufti Menk

Today, for some petty reasons, your father could tell you divorce your wife. What is right for you to do?

Whether one is rich or poor, Allāh is more worthy of both.1 So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allāh is ever, of what you do, Aware.  Quran- 4:135

Surah An-Nisa, which is obviously dedicated to the women. One thing that is clear in the Surah, Allah has repeated the issue of justice several times in the Surah.

Allah says, O you who believe, stand stead fast for justice, for the sake of Allah, whether it be against your own parents or your relatives, your children, whoever it may be, the rich or the poor.

You side with who is right. Your father, your mother, who is right?

The answer is when it comes to who is right. You’ve got to look at what the issue is.

Satan’s aim is to make you an indiscipline person, one who follows his own whims and fancies and desires. a person who is trapped by Satan would not want to follow any rules. He wants to fulfill what is known as my wish, my whims, my fancies, what I desire.

The rules and regulations are there to discipline you, to make you a person who will succeed without regret, a person who does not just have a moment of joy followed by a lifetime of regret, but rather a person who understands that I need to follow rules and regulations in a way that my contentment is extended, not just throughout my little life on this earth, but beyond going into the hereafter.

Response To My Parents Created Me! Abbas VS Atheist Lady | Speakers Corner

What about the admiration of the One Who created the universe..

Who created you, who fashioned you, who gave you your eyes?

Whenever we see something that’s contingent or reliant on something that has to assemble or fashion it in a certain way.

So, for example, the universe is contingent, it’s reliant upon helium and hydrogen and all of the other things that make the universe. Whatever is reliant on something cannot be the explanation for itself, but requires an explanation for its existence.

And what you can’t have is a series of material explanations infinitely going in the past because you can never traverse an infinite number of steps to reach this step; we’re talking today here in Speaker’s Corner.
