This calamity brings us closer to Allah..

By Sheikh ‘Abdullah Al Judai’

“This momentous event that we are living through right now is
a mighty sign from among the signs of Allah; a sign that removed
all the masks, humbled the arrogant and conceited, cut off all ties to
any other than Him, placing a barrier, before the Day of
Resurrection, between people and their desires. Where is their
pompous display of power? Where is their pride in what knowledge
they have gained? Where are those who will rescue them from this
calamity, besides Allah?”

International Women’s Day

By Arshad Gamiet
“Remember our Prophet’s wife Khadija, a wealthy business woman who employed him and who supported him in those difficult early years of Islam. Remember Aisha, whom he married after the death of Khadija. Aisha was a great scholar and one of the most authentic sources of Islamic law.

The evolution of pre-Holy Book religion

By Rabbi Allen Maller

“The idea that reason, socialism or modern science would replace religion has turned out to  be a wish fulfillment fantasy of people who bear a grudge against religion. Usually their children or grandchildren return to religion. Religious rituals and ideas are ubiquitous and continue to evolve as the creative intelligent minds of Homo Sapiens encounter changes in their environment..”

Islam teaches us to be strict with our own behaviour, and to be generous, patient and forgiving towards others. Allah alone knows the secret of all hearts. Allah alone knows who is closest to Him.  This inspiring and thought-provoking khutbah is highly recommended. Please share it widely..

By Abu Aaliyah
“Revelation tells us that muraqabah, vigilance of Allah, is one of the sublimest spiritual stations. We are told too that habituating our heart to such vigilance requires training the heart gradually and step-by-step.
