Another khutbah for Eidul Fitr

By Arshad Gamiet
“In the midst of our Eid celebrations, let us also not forget how differently Eid is being celebrated right now in Gaza, in Iraq, in Syria, Yemen, among the Rohinya Muslims in  Myanmar (Burma), the Uighurs in China and other places of conflict around the world. Allah has given us the blessing of safety and security over here. We sometimes forget how lucky we are….(To read further, please click on the picture above)”

The Reality of Fasting

By Farooq Khan

“Please note, it is not righteous to fast while travelling, nor is it better for the ill to fast if it is difficult for them to do so. In these cases, they are to make use of the permission that Allah has furnished them with, because He likes it when people take heed of the mercy that He has endowed.”

Ramadan: The month of Quran and Charity

By Farooq Khan
“My dear brothers take the advantage of this blessed
month – read, understand, implement and teach The Qur’an to
yourself, your family members and others. Please also give your
Zakat to purify your wealth and sadaqas as much as you can to
please Allah swt. Then, make Dua ‘O Allah, please forgive our sins,
ignore our shortcomings, accept of Zakat and sadaqas and our
efforts to learn, understand and implement The Qur’an into our lives,
please show your Mercy, ease our account on the day of Judgement
and enter us into Your Paradise, Ameen”

Welcoming Ramadan

By Farooq Khan
“Be kind to orphans so that when your children become orphans they also may be treated with kindness. Do invoke that Allah may forgive your sins. Do raise your hands at the time of Salat (Prayers), as it is the best time for asking Allah’s mercy. When we invoke at such times, we are answered by Allah, when we call Him, He responds, and when we ask for anything, it is accepted by Him…”

Worried? Afraid? Call on Allah!

By Arshad Gamiet
“Too often  we try to deal with life’s problems on our own, without seeking Allah’s help. These problems pile up until they become unbearable. Yet all it takes is for us to call on Allah for help, and to answer Allah’s call. Our faith and trust in Allah must awaken a desire to please Allah at all times…”

Show mercy to enjoy mercy

“Events in Afghanistan are unfolding rapidly. The whole world is waiting to see what happens next. Will there be more bloodshed, revenge, and waves of refugees fleeing for safety? Or will there be a different outcome, one that stops the violence and brings a new era of peace and reconciliation in that troubled land?

Fourteen and a half centuries ago, our beloved Prophet Muhammad sws entered the gates of Makkah as a conqueror. But he entered without violence. He forgave his enemies. He conquered their hearts instead…”

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…”

Wisdom is a gift of Allah’s love

By Arshad Gamiet
“Clearly, Allah’s wisdom will only be conferred on those of us who use their intellect, those who ponder, who contemplate on Allah’s abundant signs in the world around us and the world within us. This regular exercise of deep contemplation must inevitably lead us to appreciate how much Allah loves us, how much Allah loves His entire creation.. If we reciprocate this Divine Love, we may indeed earn Allah’s gift of wisdom.”
