  • Allah swt is in control of everything and nothing happens unless He wants it to.
  • Before the creation, Allah swt praised Himself by saying “Subhan-Allah walhumdu- Lillah

Wa- La ilaha il Allah wa- Allahu Akbar wa la hawla wa la quwata illah billah Al- Alyu- Al Atheemu.” This is the primal reality

  • Hadeeth: “ The words Allah swt loves most are Subhan-Allah walhumdu- Lillah

Wa- La ilaha il Allah wa- Allahu Akbar wa la hawla wa la quwata illah billah Al- Alyu- Al Atheemu.”

  • Allah swt is supreme above all.
  • Allah swt says: “ And the believers, each one of them believes in Allah, the angels, the holy books, and all of Allah’s messengers. We make no distinction in the ranks of the messengers. And they say “We hear and we obey, forgive us our Lord and to you is our return.””
  • Glorify the greatness of Allah swt 100 times, celebrate Subhan-Allah 100 times, and attribute all goodness to Allah swt 100 times. It will fit between the earth and the sky, and no one’s deeds can match what you did except if they did it themselves.
  • Those invoke Allah’s praises among the men and women, Allah has prepared for them forgiveness and a magnificent reward on the day of judgement.
  • Whoever wants to be with Allah swt, they are already there.
  • Act upon Allah swt’s commands and you will be successful and happy.

  • A muslim realizes that only Allah swt’s will takes affect. His will is supreme above all and nothing can rise above it.
  • There can be no existence without Allah swt.

To Guard One’s Tongue

Written:  March 29,2020

Delivered: May 17, 2019

 

  • The safety of a believer is to guard their tongue.
  • True patience is to be quiet at hard/difficult times.
  • One who speaks a lot shows lack of wisdom
  • A true believer speaks when necessary and stays silent when necessary.
  • Allah swt does not like a lying tongue.
  • A human tongue can be key to do good or a key to do bad.
  • Allah swt gave 4 doors to keep the tongue from speaking: The 2 lips, the jaws, and the both sides.
  • When a person is proud of what they say you should know very well that they are a loser.
  • Silence is a message. One expression can communicate your feelings much better than 1000 words.
  • Hadith: “The one who believes in Allah swt and the akira should speak good words or remain silent.”
  • Whoever does not give up forged speech or evil actions, Allah swt does not want their fasting from food and water.
  • Omar bin Khuttab says: “ Fasting does not mean to refrain from food and water, but to abstain from lying falsehood and vain talk.”
  • Hadith: “when you fast, let your hearing,your tongue and your sight fast from speaking, falsehood vain talk, and what is impermissible.”
  • Your fast does not count if you backbite.
  • Fasting is an exalted act of worship.
  • Everything you say is immediately recorded by the angels.
  • Hadith: “ A true muslim is a person that other people are safe from his hands and toungue.”
  • Maleka praise Allah from whatever station Allah put them in.
  • You must go to the masjid to adore Allah swt, not to talk to your friends.
  • Hadith: whoever talks a lot makes a lot of pitfalls and mistakes. Do not talk a lot unless it is about Allah swt. Whoever talks a lot his heart is hardened and the people farthest from Allah swt are the ones with hard hearts.”
  • The best role model is RasoolAllah s.a.w
  • One may say something without giving it a thought and then forget about it. That one word or phrase can be the reason he is thrown into hell fire for 70 years.
  • Hadith: “ A person might say a good thing without knowing the value of it and Allah swt may raise him to a higher station.”
  • Cemeteries have buried many victims of the tongue. People whose rivals feared them because of the words they spoke, and they ended being killed because of that.
  • Hadith: “ fasting is a shield of guardianship and charity extinguishes the fire of sin.”
  • Whoever asks for forgiveness for every believing man and every believing woman, Allah swt writes a good deed for the asker for every believing man and woman.

The Tree Of The Prophets

Written: July 6, 2020

Delivered: July 3,2020

 

  • Allah swt reminds us of the prophets and messengers He sent to mankind.The warnings and glad tidings they brought to nations and the reward of those who obeyed and of those who disobeyed.
  • The tree of the Prophets is a road map to understand the Divine mercy and guidance.
  • 124 000 prophets and 315 messengers came to humanity to remind them of their mission and how they should behave.
  • If it were not for the tree of the prophets people would live wild and die without achieving any success.
  • It is Allah swt’s mercy and compassion that He sent us prophets and messengers, holy books and scholars to show us how we should behave and to know Allah swt.
  • Adam a.s lived 1000 years and after him came Idrees a.s. Idrees a.s is the first human who started writing with a pen . He was also the first one who sewed clothes and taught it to the people. Idrees a.s understood very well the language of the stars and galaxies. He lived for about 865 years when Allah swt raised him to the fourth he had his soul taken back. That was where he met RasoolAllah s.a.w during the miraaj.
  • After Idrees a.s came Nuh a.s and after him Hud a.s.
  • The people of Hud as were idol worshippers. They hit the prophet and abused him. Allah swt destroyed that town by a howling wind which continued for 7 nights and 8 days. The people were overthrown on the ground like palm trees tumbled down. This is the state of only one town because of their sins not the globe.
  • After Hud as came Salih as. The miracle of the she camel.
  • After Salih a.s came Ibrahim as .
  • We are the children of Nuh as.
  • The people of Ibrahimas worshipped stars. They harmed and attacked him when he called them to Islam.
  • After Ibrahim as came Shuayb as. His people worshipped idols and were dishonest in business.Shuayb as said to them: “ Do you not fear the consequences of what you are doing O people? I am a trustworthy messenger sent to you.” The people were corrupt and Allah swt took care of that town.
  • Then came sayyidina Ismail a.s and he lived for 100 years and he is buried next to his mother. His brother Ishaaq as lived for 180 years  and is buried next to his father in Palestine.
  • Then came sayyidina Yaqub as. He lived for 147 years. After him came Yusuf as who lived for 110 years.
  • Then came sayyidina Ayoob as who lived 93 years.
  • Then Dhul Kifl as, then Yunus as, then Musa as who lived for 120 years and his brother Haroon as.
  • Then came Yusha Bin Noon, then came Iliya. Then Yasaa, and Uzair, Dawood, Sulaiman Zakaria, Yahya and then  Isa ibn Maryum as. Then came the seal of prophets Muhammed saw.
  • Allah swt says in the Holy Quran: “ Mankind was one nation. Then we sent prophets and messengers to give glad tidings and to warn the people. He sent down with them the book. To judge amongst the people in what they have disputes among themselves about it.” 
  • All the prophets were one Ummah with the same message.
  • No ummah (after they divided) can bypass their term or leave earlier.
  • Every time a messenger came to a nation with the truth, the people would deny and call him a liar.
  • Let those who believe rely on Allah swt.
  • Remind the people of the message, but the deaf cannot hear the call.
  • When people hear something they don’t want to hear they refuse to accept, they argue and then they walk away.
  • People must accept the message before the big calamity befalls them because of their sins.
  • RasoolAllah s.a.w says: “ I have seen the parade of all nations on the day of qiyamah. I saw a prophet who had very few followers, then I saw another prophet who had 1 or 2 followers and some prophets with none at all. Then a huge multitude of people were shown to me. I thought that these were my people but then I was told “ these are the followers of Musa a.s , but look there at the horizon.” I looked at the horizon and saw a huge multitude of people. Then I was told to look at the other side and saw another huge multitude of people and I was told” This is your ummah and among them are 70 000 people who will enter Jannah without questioning.”
  • Follow the way of Ibrahim as for Allah swt loved him and he was among the near ones.
  • The title ‘muslim’ was given to us by Ibrahim a.s.
  • Our souls are Noor.
  • The Noor in your heart will shine on your face when you recite durood.
  • When reciting durood it is immediately delivered to RasoolAllah s.a.w.
