“Unless we sincerely do good deeds purely for Allah’s sake, we risk losing out completely. We should never do good just to look good in the eyes of others. Such intentions are unworthy and unacceptable to Allah…”

Never belittle the smallest good deed…

By Arshad Gamiet
“Sadly, these blessed days of Muharram have also been so traumatic for our brothers and sisters in Afghanistan. Who can ever forget those desperate scenes at Kabul airport? Dozens of men were desperately hanging on to a plane that was taking off. Some fell to their death from hundreds of feet above the tarmac.
This is how 20 years of war has come to an end in Afghanistan, which has been described as “the graveyard of empires…”

By Sheikh Hassan Elwan
“Everyone desires happiness that lasts, but we make it conditional on the people and the circumstances around us. We blame others for our unhappiness. Sheikh Hassan Elwan shows us how to find lasting inner peace that remains unshaken regardless of the ups and downs of life. Please share this khutbah with your loved ones.”

Fake news and truth seekers

By Arshad Gamiet
