The Importance of Actions in One’s Life

Statements from the lecture: “Adding knowledge to actions shows that Allāh’s favour is upon a person!” “The Salaf used to say, ‘Knowledge is not that people relate a lot, knowledge is sought in order to fear Allāh.'” “The salaf used to say ‘ the one who does not act upon knowledge is ignorant.'” “Fuḍayl Ibn Iyāḍ said ‘The Scholar remains to be ignorant until he acts upon his knowledge.'” “The two feet will not proceed on Yawm al-Qiyyammah until they are asked about four things, one of those things is ‘knowledge’...

Advice On Dealing with Anger

The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said: “The strong man is not the one who can overpower others (in wrestling); rather, the strong man is the one who controls himself when he gets angry.” Anger is one of the evil whispers of Shayṭān, which leads to so many evils and tragedies, of which only Allāh knows their full extent. For this reason, Islām has a great deal to say about this bad characteristic, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) described cures for this “disease” and ways to limit its effects, among which are the following: (1) Seeking refuge with Allāh...

Comprehensive Guidance

…order you with five things which Allāh ordered me with: The Jamāʿah, hearing, obeying, ḥijrah (migration), and Jiḥād in the way of Allāh – the Mighty and Majestic. So whosoever separates from the Jamāʿah by a hand-span, throws off the yoke of Islām from his neck, unless he repents. And whosoever calls with the calls of the days of ignorance, then he is from the horde of the Hellfire. From al-Ḥārith al-Ashʿarī (raḍī Allāhu ʿanhu) who said that the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said: “Indeed, Allāh – The Most High – ordered Yahyá Ibn Zakariyyā with five things; that he...

What caused Iblīs to be ejected from enjoying the company of the Angels to being debased and cursed? What caused his outward and inward form to be disfigured such that he took on the most vile of features and his inner features even worse?

Death: The Destroyer of Desires

I also advise you – O brothers – to do those actions which will be the cause of love and affection to develop between you. Many people do not truly understand the Religion of Islām. Indeed many people think that the Religion of Islām includes certain bad traits – even though Islām in reality objects to them – because some Muslims portray a false image of Islām. Death is that harsh reality that is faced by every human who lives. It is the one thing that we will all experience – be we men, women, Muslims, Christians, Blacks, Whites or any other type of person on this earth. It is something...
