Audio: Events on the Day of Judgement

 In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  Events on the Day of Judgement

There are several events that will occur on the Day of Judgement, the Day when the people will be gathered awaiting their fates. They will be covered in sweat, all the way up to their throats because of their fear of what awaits them. Each person will be concerned about his own self, not his children, his spouse, his brother, his sister, or his parents. What a terrible day that will be! Allāh has promised intercession only for those who say "La ilāha ill-Allāh." Shaykh ʿUbayd elucidates.Translated by Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl Davis.

  We Are the Strangers

Benefit: Creating Sister-Centric Independent Daʿwah Organisations?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

 [Q]: In recent years, across the English speaking world, there has been a trend in women creating sister-centric organisations for the purpose of daʿwah. In this regard, they will create blogs, organise lessons with students of knowledge, request donations and generally speaking, create a banner organisation under which the women in the community and internationally by way of social media, caretake aspects of the daʿwah locally. Considering that leadership in daʿwah necessitates insight into intricate affairs and close relations with the scholars, visiting them and taking their directive, what have any of the Scholars said about this affair. Should sisters do this or should they unite with their local salafī centre?

Abū Ḥakīm answers this question from the seminar: Be in This World as a Stranger.

Benefit: The Call of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam)

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

In the times that we live in, there is no doubt about the multitude of those calling to 'Islām'. For some, what is intended by 'Islām' is the call to revolutions and overthrowing rulers. For others, 'Islām' represents the call for the unity of religions. As a result of this widespread confusion, it is imperative upon the Muslims to look at the way of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) in how he called to the true and correct Islām. Our brother, Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl Davis, highlights the methodology of the Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) in calling to the truth and cultivating the Companions, may Allāh be pleased with them. So, lend your ear to this brief benefit. May Allāh give you success and save you from the tribulations of our time.
