A Khutbah - A Beautiful Reminder


And continue to remind, for surely the reminder profits the faithfuls. ~ The Qur'an 51:55

The following is an excerpt from a Khutbah which given by one Sheikh from Kano (Nigeria)

~

Every human is a slave. You're either a slave of your desires or a slave of Allāh. You either live life by your rules or the rule of Allāh.

How can the heart travel to God if it's chained by its desires?

O' son of Adam! Sell this World for the hereafter and you win both,
sell the hereafter for this world & you lose both. (Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyah)

Islam is not a buffet where you pick and choose what suits you. Don't obey your desires. Obey Allāh.

Imprisoned is he, whose heart is imprisoned from Allāh. Captured is he, who is captured by his desires.

Fudayl Ibn Iyad was asked "What do you find the strangest of all things?" He said: The heart that knows Allāh, yet still disobeys Him

Don’t miss Salāh or Prescribed Prayer for the sake of people. You were born & will die alone, you’ll go to the grave alone & be questioned alone on Judgment Day

الْأَخِلَّاءُ يَوْمَئِذٍ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ عَدُوٌّ إِلَّا الْمُتَّقِينَ

Close friends, on that Day, will be enemies to each other, except for the righteous and God fearing... ~ Quran 43, 67

Fajr you're asleep, Zuhur you're busy, Asr you're tired, Magrib you're watching tv, Isha you're eating. You can dodge prayer, but not death.

We prepare for uncertain matters in our life like marriage, career etc but do we prepare for the one event that is definitely definitely going to happen, ie death?

The first thing a slave will be held to account for is Salah. If we fall short on that, then we will fall short on what's to come.

Fajr: Do not fear missing sleep. Fear a day in which there will be no sleep.

Expecting Paradise whilst neglecting Prayer, is like waiting for a train to arrive at the airport. Remember to pray Dhuhr.

Everyone dreams to be in Jannah, but Allahﷻ says:

لَّيْسَ بِأَمَانِيِّكُمْ
Paradise is not obtained by your wishful thinking. ~ The Qur'an 4:123

If you could hear the sound of the pens of the angels writing your name among those who remember Allāh, you'd die out of ecstasy. ~ Ibn Al-Qayyim

This Dunya (this temporal world) is not a resting place It's a testing place! ‪Earn‬ good deeds!

The world is a prison for the believer and a Paradise for the unbeliever (Hadith of Muslim). Your release here, sooner or later will be coming to an end.

He whom Allah has predestined to enter Paradise, the reasons which will cause his entrance shall spring from calamities; He whom Allah has predestined to enter the Hellfire, the reasons which will cause his entrance shall spring from lusts, said Ibn Al-Qayyim.

Hazrat Umar ibn al-Khattab instructed us: "Get used to a rough life, for luxury does not last forever."

Do not be overly pleased by easy times. Verily, gold is tested for its purity by fire. Likewise,a righteous servant is tested by tribulations.

It pains me to see born Muslims chasing the lifestyle of the disbelievers by drinking, clubbing, getting high etc.

Why do you think reverts run away from that life to the Deen of Allāh. Run back to your Lord for His mercy overcomes His wrath.

How long will the person be happy with his worldly life?..Knowing that his ultimate home is the grave.

No matter how beautiful your face is, you will still be the food of worms when you are buried. Set aside your arrogance & remember your grave.

Every single limb & organ in your body will speak up & bear witness against every action you committed in this Dunya.

مَّا يَلْفِظُ مِن قَوْلٍ إِلَّا لَدَيْهِ رَقِيبٌ عَتِيدٌ
Not a word is said except that there is a watcher by him ready to record it. ~ The Qur'an 50:18

Hijab (covering) includes the way a person walks, talks, looks and thinks. All of it should be done modestly and applies to both men and women.

My dear sisters in Islam. Cover up for the sake of Allah before its too late as today you are over the soil but tomorrow you may be under it.

Yes hijab doesn't necessarily indicate your level of piety but it is fard (a must). So regardless of what you say, you have to wear it.

Make tawba (sincere repentance) not just for sins you've committed, but also for obligations you haven't fulfilled.” ~ Ibn Taymiyyah

I pray that the comfort of our graves exceeds the comfort of our beds.

We ask Allah, Our Lord the Most Glorious, to take our souls away when He's most pleased with us and make us of those who're always conscious of the Al-Gayb (the Unseen).
