Short Khutbah

Be like Muhammad! sws

By Nuradeen Ahmad
“Prophet Muhammad sws was not just a man of theory. He was a man of action. All the wisdom that we find in the Holy Quran and Hadith is only of value in theory until we learn it, love it and live it.  We Muslims must make it work, as our Prophet did. Islam must become a living reality in our lives, in our personal behaviour, in our personal conduct, in our families and neighbourhoods. Islam  was never meant to be an academic curiosity, fit only for the dusty bookshelves in libraries and museums…”

Managing Change Effectively

By Dr Husni Hammuda
“For better or for worse, Allah warns us in His Holy Book that Allah will never change the condition of a people until they start to change what is within themselves…” This is a clear warning that we are all responsible for improving or worsening our situation. Allah only helps those who patiently persevere in seeking His good pleasure…”

Islam and Original Sin

By Sheikh Abdul Hamid Lachporia
“In Islam, religion is not only a spiritual and intellectual necessity but also a social and universal need. It is not to bewilder man but to guide him. It is not to debase him but to elevate his moral nature. It is not to deprive him of anything useful, or to burden him, or to oppress his qualities but to open for him inexhaustible treasures of sound thinking and right action…”

Welcome to all the students

“…if you take all the scientific theories and lay them side by side with the Quranic view of Creation. You will not find a simpler, more logical and rational explanation…”

Good Advice in the month of Muharram

By Sheikh Abdul Hamid Lachporia
“Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. ..”

Eidul Adha khutbah

By Arshad Gamiet
“With so many Muslims enduring unspeakable hardship in so many places today, the blessings, the barakah, and the spiritual lessons of Hajj are desperately needed by all. Just like Nabi Ibraheem, let us willingly sacrifice our time, money and material possessions that we love so much, to serve Allah. This is the true meaning of Prophet Abraham’s prayer:

“Innas salatee wa nusukee wa mahyaya wama maatee lil Laahi rabbil aalameen”

“Surely, my prayer, my sacrifice, my life and my death is for Allah, the Lord of all the Worlds”

Sunni, Shi’a, Sufi or Salafi: Who is a real Muslim?

by Arshad Gamiet
“For the first time in 1400 years, scholars from Sunni and Shia, true Sufi and and true Salafi traditions came together to clarify these 3 vital issues: (1) Who is a Muslim? (2) Are Muslims allowed to declare other Muslims as apostates [to call them Kafir; to commit Takfir] (3) and finally, what are the qualifications to issue a Fatwa [a legal ruling]. The 200 leading scholars from around the world all came to a unanimous agreement on these vital issues……

A short khutbah on the Hajj

By Arshad Gamiet
“Hajj is an outward journey tracing the spiritual history of Islam. It is also the inward journey each and every one of us must undertake, to find our own centre, in the Kaaba of our heart. What desires, what emotions and passions are still circling, making tawaaf around our spiritual heart? Thespiritual heart, the qalb is the locus of our personality. This is our real driving force. Let’s make sure that it is surrounded by loving thoughts of Remembrance of our most Beloved, Allah…”

Another khutbah for Eidul Fitr (revised for 2017)

By Arshad Gamiet
“Never ever fool yourself thinking you can’t change things. Don’t ever adopt a defeatist attitude. To despair and give up all hope is a grave sin. Life is a challenge, a test from Allah; and Allah’s help is always near…”

Last 10 days of Ramadan

By Arshad Gamiet
“The time was during the last ten nights of Ramadan in the year 610 and the place was in a cave on Jabal Nur, the Mountain of Light, near Makka. Here Jibreel took Muhammad sws, the son of Abdullah, in a tight embrace, and commanded him to “Read!”
