As salaamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullah I really apologize for not posting anything in quite some time. Both me and Br. Sajid have been really busy with other things. May Allah make our situations easy for all of us. Ameen. Just read this post on another blog and it brought me to tears subhanAllah. We go through trials in this life but when we read about other people's difficulties, it really puts your situation in perspective. Read this story and you will know what I mean...
As salaamu ‘alaykum
As the readers of this blog know, we like to share as much beneficial and original content as possible with everyone, with the help of Allah azza wa jal.
Today, we would like to share an excellent lecture given by Br Kashif Khan (Imam of Masjid ul-Bayaan in Asburk Park, NJ) on the topic of the Ten Commands from Allah in Surah Al-‘Anaam (151-153). You can download the lecture files below. They are in m4a format. I was able to play it on windows media player. If anyone is not able to play the file, let me know and I will work on changing the format inshaAllah.
“And verily, this (i.e. Allah’s Commandments mentioned in the above two Verses 151 and 152) is my Straight Path, so follow it, and follow not (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His Path. This He has ordained for you that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious – see V.2:2).”
As salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah
I begin with the name of Allah, the Most Beneficient, the Most Merciful.
We have learned from the scholars in teaching their classes on Kitaab at-Tawheed (Book of Islamic Monotheism) and Qawaid ul-‘Arba (Four Rules of Shirk) how Allah has put the concept of Tawheed ur-Ruboobiyyah (Tawheed of Lordship) in the fitrah (natural disposition) of all of the creation.
Just this week, I was talking with one of my co-workers; he is going through a tough situation relating to work.
So i tried to console him by saying “Don’t stress yourself out too much over this, it’s not like this is the only place left where you can work”
So then he said to me, “Do you believe in the Lord?” And continued saying: “I believe in the Lord (and he pointed his fingers to the sky) and I keep supplicating to Him to take this burden off of me”
He continued to say “I am weak and He is powerful so I say to Him, ‘Here take this from me'”
Regardless of the fact if he was referring to Jesus as his Lord or the Lord of Jesus (Allah), the fact that he pointed his fingers to the sky showed to me that he affirms that the Lord is above us, as is befitting of Him subhana wa ta’ala.
Even the Christian’s aqeedah in terms of Ruboobiyyah is better than the aqeedah where some Muslims say (O Allah, guide them) “Allah is everywhere”
Listen to Shaykh Saalim at-Taweel’s beneficial points on the benefits of talking about Allah being above the Creation!
Today is 25th December when each year most Christians around the world celebrate Christmas. The unfortunate thing is that the reality of the affair is different than what many Christians understand Christmas to be…

THOSE WHO SAY ‘OUR LORD! AVERT FROM US THE TORMENT OF THE HELL’
“And those who say: ‘O our Lord avert from us the torment of the Hell-fire, indeed its torment adheres and persists’. Evil indeed it (Hell) is an abode and as a place to rest in.” surah-furqaan(25): 65-66.
Shaikh ‘Abdur-Rahmaan ibn Naasir as Sa’dee said,
“And those who say, ‘O our Lord avert from us the torment of the Hell-fire…”Meaning, avert it from us by safeguarding us from its causes, and by forgiving us whatever we have done which would deserve punishment.
“Its torment clings and persists.” The meaning is that it persists and clings to its people, just as a debt persists and clings to the debtor.
“It is an evil abode and residence.” They say this out of humility to their Lord, to make manifest their extreme need for Him, to acknowledge that it is not within their capacity to bear this torment and in order to remind each other of Allah’s favor upon them. For indeed the averting of a calamity will vary in accordance with its severity and enormity. Thus, the greater it is, the greater will be the impact of its being averted and the greater will be the joy which this produces.
