The Verses : Speaking About Rolling Down Tears And Saving Lives | Mufti Menk

Sometimes we dislike someone. So we say things that are unfair and unjust simply because we’ve disliked them. That is unfair. Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala tells us

Yes, when you are in a crisis when you’ve had someone who’s wronged, you when you dislike someone for a certain reason don’t let that lead you to be unjust with that person. Remember the exact parameters of dislike; don’t let it go beyond that at all.

Allah is telling us to stand up for justice Even if it is in favor of those whom you disagree.

it is important for us also to realize on a totally different note that our duty as human beings is to look out for the other human beings. They are all the creatures of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala. It is unfair for us to want to survive at the expense of others.

As human beings we must be concerned for all life. Allah tells us in Surat al-ma’idah that if you saved a single soul, a single person it is equivalent to having saved Humanity because you’re following a good teaching.

At times when we are going through difficulty, I’m sure you and I have tasted. How listening to the Quran, reciting the Quran actually helps so much. It brings us to tears, especially when we’re emotional when we’re feeling low and we hear the verses of Allah (Swt).

Allah speaks about these tears and He praises the tears, the tears of those who cry when they hear the verses of Allah.

Imagine you’re in a crisis, imagine you’re going through hardship and difficulty and then Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala’s verses bring about a comfort, a soothing feeling.

Be Kind Not Bragging! Why, When And How To Say Ayatulkursi Citocs-Ep9 | Mufti Menk

The almighty asks us to remember to be virtuous to one another. Remember to be kind to everyone so that if a day comes when you’re in crisis, at least you would have had a good relationship with everyone.

Remember a kind word you will never lose anything by being polite, greet people respond to the greeting, smile at one another, the small assistance that you may be able to render…… remember it’s not all about yourself. It’s about us. We are Humanity.

So Allah says take care of each other. You must take care of each other.

Don’t become too proud about your power, your might, and your wealth. You are not far from Allah’s might. if Allah wants He can take it away in a Flash.

When you have, don’t be proud when you’re in power, Serve the People.

The prophet Muhammad peace be upon Him used to say if you take my soul during my sleep, then forgive it, give it paradise. And if you are to release it again and get me up from my sleep, then protect it in the way that you protect your pious servants. What a beautiful prayer!

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِاللَّهُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ لاَ تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلاَ نَوْمٌ لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الأَرْضِ مَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِهِ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَلاَ يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلاَّ بِمَا شَاءَ وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ وَلاَ يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَاوَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ
Allahu la ilaha illa Huwa, Al-Haiyul-Qaiyum La ta’khudhuhu sinatun wa la nawm, lahu ma fis-samawati wa ma fil-‘ard Man dhal-ladhi yashfa’u ‘indahu illa bi-idhnihi Ya’lamu ma baina aidihim wa ma khalfahum, wa la yuhituna bi shai’im-min ‘ilmihi illa bima sha’a Wasi’a kursiyuhus-samawati wal ard, wa la ya’uduhu hifdhuhuma Wa Huwal ‘Aliyul-Adheem.
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. “Allah! There is no god but He – the Living, The Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him Nor Sleep. His are all things In the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede In His presence except As he permitteth? He knoweth What (appeareth to His creatures As) Before or After or Behind them. Nor shall they encompass Aught of his knowledge Except as He willeth. His throne doth extend Over the heavens And on earth, and He feeleth No fatigue in guarding And preserving them, For He is the Most High. The Supreme (in glory).”

Say Beautiful Remembrance To Start Off A Day Outside To Be Protected By Angels | AIYP Ep-6

The prophet (saw) gave us this beautiful remembrance to start off our day outside of the home. When you say

بسم الله، توكلت على الله، لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله

Bismillah, tawakkaltu ’ala Allah, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa-billah

In the name of Allah, I’ve put my trust in Allah, and there is no power or might except that which belongs to Allah.

And the angels responding saying you’ve been guided you will be defended. You will be protected and your shaitan knowing that you are going to be under the protection of the angels and the guidance of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala throughout the day.

‘The One In Control Of What I Want’ Halal & Tayyib And Fasting Rules WIth Exceptions | CITOCS- Ep6 | Mufti Menk

Oh people eat from that which is on Earth for as long as it is halal and Tayyib which means pure and clean. because if it is not pure and clean according to the Quran the energy that is derived from that food, which is impure and unclean would only be used in that which is impure And immoral.

Have you earned it that which is free from deception, free from that which is harmful and free from that which is illegal such as stealing and so on.

Allah says Your food must be Tayyib, Not only Halal but make sure that even the animals that you are consuming have been treated in the most befitting way.

The plate of food in front of you, try to finish your food. Don’t be wasteful. if you are wasteful how do you expect comfort in times of Crisis? That food which we had taken into our plates and wasted it could have been a meal for those who don’t have food at all.

Calling out to the almighty already there is so much of comfort in the hearts. Like I always say when we call out to the almighty he hears us definitely he has already heard us….

How And When To Make Dua Learning From The Prophet Abraham (A.S) | Citocs-Ep4 | Mufti Menk

Dua /Supplication is definitely a way of achieving comfort in times of Crisis. We sometimes feel that Allah is not responding but he knows the future, so He doesn’t want to give it to us.

Do we have the correct relationship with Allah, did we pass the tests that Allah placed in our lives or did we seek the forgiveness of Allah before we called out to Him at least?

Don’t judge Allah by what He has given others, Allah Subhanahu wa’ta’ala, you should judge your own relationship with Him. If He has given you, it’s not a sign that He’s happy with you. He’s given the disbelievers and those who don’t recognize Him.

Allah is saying clearly that we should not be miserly when we are praying or supplicating to Allah, call out for everyone. When you ask Allah to bless someone who’s a disbeliever, the biggest blessing is the blessing of guidance and Faith

When we’re a supplicating to Allah make sure you’re on the right page, make sure you’re doing the right things. You cannot be a person who’s transgressing against Allah day and night and expect that when you call out to Allah he’s going to be excited about it without you having even developed your relationship with Allah.

You want the Comfort? well a way to get the comfort in the times of Crisis is actually by getting onto the right page in your relationship with Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala. Then call out to Him and when you call out, don’t call out for yourself alone.

Remember your parents your children your family members your teachers, all the others in the broader family, your town your city and the whole world the Believers as well as the disbelievers wow.

The Thing Allah Repeats Thrice In Surah Al-Baqarah And How Black Magic Goes Against Faith | Citocs-Ep2 | Mufti Menk

The prophet Muhammad peace be upon Him says whoever visits a magician to cast a spell has disbelieved in what Muhammad peace be upon him has brought. It is wrong for anyone to do that which is unacceptable like casting a spell or visiting a person who would cast a spell. Remember it is equally wrong for us to accuse the innocent of casting spells or being a witch or a wizard.

We stop accusations. We stop casting spells. We stopped visiting others who cast spells or claim to bring about goodness for you because they will never bring about goodness for you. Goodness lies in the hands of Allah.

Allah says we have favoured you Way Beyond any test that has come in your direction. During times of crisis when you concentrate on the positives, you will definitely make the negative that is right in front of you seem very small.

We were sent on to the Earth in order to be tested. From the moment we were born right up to the moment we shall return to Allah. We will be tested one after the other. So many things will happen for Allah to actually give us an opportunity to shine and to develop a better relationship with Him.

Nobody not a soul on Earth has had it the way they wanted it. We’ve all had it the way Allah wants it, wanted it and shall have it. So learn to develop a relationship with Allah and understand you will be tested. It doesn’t mean Allah hates you. It doesn’t mean He’s angry with you.

What About My Previous Life, Is Allah Going To Forgive Me CITOCS-Ep2 | Mufti Menk

Allah is telling all of mankind worship your Lord the One Who made you, surely He who made you is the One you’re going to return to.

We would only be able to achieve comfort in times of Crisis if we developed the correct relationship with Allah. It is Allah who is showing us His power the helplessness of man And this is why if you take a look at mankind no matter what  we have, it is always Nothing compared to what Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala Owns. He owns not only us but whatever we own is also owned by Allah. It’s amazing.

Allah forgives him for indeed Allah is At Tawwab and Ar-Rahim. These two qualities again bring about comfort in times of Crisis. Allah calls himself At Tawwab who it means one who keeps on forgiving; He forgives again and again and so on. So this is Allah has quality. He doesn’t just forgive one time. Never lose Hope in the mercy of Allah. You will feel the comfort.

He is the oft-forgiving, r-rahim the especially merciful. We are all searching for Comfort. These are difficult times, but we must know that when we turn to Allah in forgiveness, and we repent to Allah He will open the doors of Mercy for all of us.

To seek forgiveness is actually the key to the door of the goodness that Allah has kept for you. May we be from among those who can repent. For indeed, It is through repentance that we will achieve comfort.

The Two Qualities That The Most Merciful Wants To Be Repeated | CITOCS-Ep1 | Mufti Menk

When we start anything in the name of Allah automatically, we have a sense of comfort. Allah chooses to two of His qualities that He wanted to be repeated again and again,

Those whose tongues are moist in the remembrance of Allah, declaring His praised and His greatness. They will never go wrong.

You could have anything but if you are astray, you’ve lost. You could have anything but if you’ve earned the anger of Allah, you’ve lost what do we want? The mercy of Allah, never let shaitaan overtake you by making you think that you are too far from the mercy of Allah (swt)

Dedicate Yourself With Simple Adhkar To Unlock Unlimited Barakah In This Ramadan | Shaykh Omar Suleiman And Mufti Menk

There are numerous narrations about simple people in society that had very simple duas that People might have mocked or found to be very rudimentary, but they were actually very special, right, and they spoke to the beauty of the hearts of those whose tongues would Express those simple forms of dua .

Islam is not an elitist religion. Islam is accessible to the Bedouin and it’s accessible to the king. It’s accessible to people across their socioeconomic status, because we all supplicate the same God, we all have the same mechanism for supplicating that one God.

No one has a shorter ladder to him, right? It’s just there, Allahumma  oh Allah! and once you say oh Allah then all of us are in the same plane when we say o Allah O My Lord, right, and just call upon him in that way.
