Abū ʿAmmār Yāsir al-ʿAtāwī al-Atharī
A timely foundational explanation of the oft-misunderstood concept of backbiting (al-ghībah). This excellent treatise covers evidence from the Qurʾān, the Sunnah and the statements of the Salaf concerning the ḥarām and ḥalāl types of backbiting, as well as the ḥalāl and ḥarām types of namīmah (tale carrying).
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Shaykh Ṣālih al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) was asked: How can I rid myself of ḥarām money [i.e. money earned by unlawful means] if it were that it was mixed with ḥalāl money which I earned by conforming to the Islamic Sharīʿah?
The shaykh (حفظه الله) responded by saying:
Upon you is to estimate [the quantity] of ḥarām money you possess, and to be cautious [when doing so by overestimating as opposed to underestimating if it were that you were uncertain of the exact quantity of ḥarām money you possessed]. Then distribute it to the poor, not as charity, [but rather,] as ḥarām money you are ridding yourself of. So as to absolve yourself [from it], so that this money will be like money which has no owner. Therefore, it is given to the poor and needy.

A complete and final demolition of the plots of the Communists, Zionist Jews and Christians, and a wake-up call for those who still stubbornly maintain that the Scholars of the Ummah do not know the current state of affairs.
Imām Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah
A beautiful article extracted from the words of Imām Ibn al-Qayyim showing how the soul tempts one to look at that which is unlawful.

Abū al-ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson
A khuṭbah that took place at Masjid al-Furqān (TROID) on Oct. 24th 2014. The sermon discusses the reality of Halloween; its celebration of the Shayṭān and clear opposition to Tawḥīd. The second part of the khuṭbah discusses the Khawārij (renegades) and the fallacy of the IS (the alleged Islamic State) in Syria, and it's corrupt and misguided leader al-Baghdādī. The speaker incurs the audience to ignore their propaganda videos and to know that the Scholars of Islām have exposed and condemned the murderous al-Baghdādī.
