First Khutbah

Praise be to Allah. We praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil within ourselves and from our wrong deeds. He whom Allah guides, none can misguide, and he whom Allah sends astray, none can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone, Who has no partners, and I bear witness that our master and Prophet Muhammad is Allah’s servant and messenger. May Allah bestow his bountiful peace and blessings upon him and upon his Household and Companions.

O Muslims!  Fear Allah as He should be feared, and grasp the trustworthy handhold of Islam.

O Muslims!    Allah favours His servants by providing them with blessed seasons so that they may do more acts of obedience to Him. In Allah’s perfect wisdom, the blessed days do not last so that His servants may compete with one another to do as many good deeds as they possibly can before these days are over.

He whom Allah guides, none can misguide, and he whom Allah sends astray, none can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone, Who has no partners, and I bear witness that our master and Prophet Muhammad is Allah’s servant and Messenger. May Allah bestow his bountiful peace and blessings upon him and his Household and Companions.

O Muslims!  Fear Allah as He should be feared, and be mindful of Him in secret and in your private conversations.

O Muslims!  The most honourable deeds are those that bring honour and glory to man through his obedience to his Creator, and this can only be achieved by worshiping Allah, Exalted be He, and demonstrating total submission to Him. Allah, Glorified be He, says: “Whosoever desires honour, power and glory then to Allah belong all honour, power and glory . . .” [Surah Fatir: 10]

Sheikh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (Rahimahullah) said, “The more the servant fulfills the duties of worship towards Allah, the closer he will be to perfection and the higher the rank he will attain”.

Allah has praised Prophet Ibrahim for worshiping Him, saying: “Verily, Ibrahim was, without doubt, forbearing, used to invoke Allah with humility, and was repentant.” [Surah Hud: 75]

First Khutbah

Praise be to Allah. We praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils within ourselves and the wickedness of our wrong deeds. He whom Allah guides, none can misguide, and he whom Allah sends astray, none can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone, Who has no partners, and I bear witness that our master and Prophet Muhammad is Allah’s Servant and Messenger. May Allah confer his bountiful peace and blessings upon him and his household and Companions.

O Muslims, Fear Allah, servants of Allah, as He should be feared; for the fear of Allah is the light of guidance and the source of life for one’s heart and conscience.

O Muslims, Allah has chosen the right religion for His servants. He has promised to make this religion superior over all other religions and to grant victory to His servants. He has also promised to annihilate falsehood and its advocates.

The life of the Prophet ﷺ is full of trials and afflictions and abounds in lessons and morals. It is necessary for us to know about the life of the Prophet ﷺ and how he acted in times of hardship. Zain al-Abideen (Rahimahullah) said, “We were taught the battles of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ as we would be taught a surah from the Quran.”

مغفرةُ الذنوب بيسير القول والعمل

First Khutbah
Verily all praise is due to Allah. We praise Him, seek help from Him and seek His forgiveness, and we seek His protection from the evils of our selves and from the evils of our actions. Whoever Allah guides, then there is no misguidance for him, and whoever is misguided, then there is no guidance for him. And I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone. He has no partner. And I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger. May Allah send salutations on him and on his family and his companions, and may much peace be upon them.

Thereafter: So fear Allah – servants of Allah – the true fear, for fearing Allah is the pillar of guidance and shunning it is the path of misery.

O Muslims: Allah created the humans and the jinn for His worship, so whoever obeys Him, He promises him Paradise. And whoever disobeys Him, He threatens him with a painful recompense. And reckoning by Him – Glorified is He – is by the weights of atoms. He – Glorified and Majestic – says: “And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it.” [Surah Zalzalah: 8]

The Last Ten Days of Ramadaan

The Last Ten Days of Ramadaan

Shaykh ‘Abdul-Muhsin Al-Qaasim

Ramadaan 22, 1425  ~ November 5, 2004

All praise is due to Allaah Lord of all the worlds. Peace and blessings of Allaah be upon the Messenger, his household and companions.

Fellow Muslims! Fear Allaah as He should be feared, for the fear of Allaah is the only way to guidance and turning from it leads to misery.

Dear brethren! Our Lord showers favour on His servants with seasons of blessings and righteous deeds. The pious ones seize the opportunity and those who love to return to their Lord in repentance endeavour to worship Allaah more in the blessed last nights of Ramadaan.

The nights of this blessed month are getting ready to depart. In this month, gates of Paradise are opened, gates of Hell are closed and the devils are fettered. The last ten days contain the best of all of nights. When it was the last ten days of this month, the Messenger of Allaah would keep awake for acts of worship during its nights. He would awaken his family and exert efforts in acts of worship. ‘Aaishah (Radiallahu Anha) said, “In Ramadaan, the Messenger of Allaah (Salallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam) would make efforts [in doing act of worship] more than he would do in other months. And he would make efforts during the last ten days more than he would do in other days of Ramadaan.” [Muslim]

How to receive Ramadaan

How to receive Ramadaan

Sheikh ‘Abdul Muhsin al Qaasim
Sha’baan 26, 1423  ~ November 1, 2002

All praise is due to Allaah, Lord of all the Worlds. May peace and blessings of Allaah be upon the Prophet, his household and companions.

Fellow Muslims! Allaah has selected from the time seasons of righteous deeds. He selected some days, nights and hours out of His favour and kindness. Each time the moon of Ramadaan is sighted, days of blessings and its fragrance return to Muslims. For Ramadaan is a month in which fasting Muslims live in the horizons of purity and wipe off their foreheads the toils of this life.

Ramadaan is received while it fills the minds of righteous men in light and happiness. It is a source for joy for devoted worshippers. An hour of acceptance that a man attains in that month may elevate him to the pleasure of Allaah. Fasting is a secret act of worship between the Creator and man, which he observes sincerely in abstention from food and lawful lusts.

In a Qudsee hadeeth, the Messenger of Allaah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) narrated that Allaah says, “Every act of man is for him except fast. For it is for me and I am going to reward him for it.” In fasting, man learns the lesson of sincerity of purpose by which he can perform other acts of worship, far from hypocrisy and showing off.

Fast reforms the hearts, encourages commendable deeds and prevents from corrupts deeds. It removes sins and increases reward. The Prophet (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, Whoever fasts in the month of Ramadaan with faith and hoping to be rewarded by Allaah, all his past sins will be forgiven him.” [Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim]
