Praise be to Allah. Praise be to Allah, Who has perfected the religion for us, completed His favour to us, made our Ummah (Muslim Nation) the best of all nations, and sent to us a Messenger from among us to recite to us His verses, purify us and teach us the Book (the Quran) and wisdom. I thank Him for His bountiful favours. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone, Who has no partners – a testimony that is the best protection for whoever holds fast to it – and I bear witness that our Prophet and master, Muhammad, is His servant and Messenger, whom He sent as a mercy to the worlds. May Allah confer His prayers on him, his household, and his Companions, to be a light for us in the face of darkness.
O Muslims, Fear Allah, for whoever fears Allah attains success and whoever is led by his own whims goes astray. “O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam” [Surah Ale-Imran: 102].
Praise be to Allah, Who originated, and created everything. Nothing that has happened or come into being escapes His knowledge. I praise Him for each and every step taken by day or by night. I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah alone Who has no partners. He has warned us about enemy plots. I also bear witness that our Prophet and leader, Muhammad t, who is unquestionably the most noble of all mankind, is the servant and Messenger of Allah. May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, his household, as well as his Companions – the lions of war. May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon Prophet Muhammad, as well as his household and Companions forever,
O’ Muslims! Fear Allah truly; for, by such means hardships are lifted and enemy plots against you are dispelled. “But if you remain patient and pious, not the least harm will their plot do to you.” [Ale-‘Imran: 120]
All praise be to Allah, great in His Power, Mighty in His Force, All-Knowing of the condition of the slave in private and public. I praise Him on His Decree, the good (of it) and its evil. And I thank Him on pre-ordainment, the sweet of it and its bitter. And I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone. He has no partner. For him are brilliant signs, and from his signs is that the heaven and the earth stand by His Command. And I bear witness that our prophet and master Muhammad – peace be upon him – is His slave and messenger. May Allah send salutations and much peace upon him and on his family and companions.
Thereafter: O you Muslims: Fear Allah as ought to be feared, and hasten towards His Forgiveness and His pleasure, and race towards His mercy and His Paradise, and beware of His anger and the pain of His punishment. Verily Allah is with those who fear Him and those who are the good -doers. Continue reading →

All Praise is for Allah, Who has fed us and given us to drink, Who clothed us and gave us shelter. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, the One True God without any partner, Who is our Supporter, our Sustainer, and our Creator. I bear witness that Muhammad is the servant and messenger of Allah, who is our prophet, our leader, and our beloved messenger. He advised us to hold steadfast to tawheed, the oneness of Allah, and he called us to goodness. May Allah’s peace and blessing be upon him, his family members and his companions who were the most truthful ones.
Oh Muslims, fear Allah for the successful ones are ones who fear Him, and the winners are the guided ones. He is the happiest one who prevents himself from doing evil. Allah says “O you who believe! Fear Allâh as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islâm.” [Surah Ale Imraan: Ayah 102] Continue reading →

All praise is due to Allah, the Magnificent, the Exalted. I praise Him for the favors and grace He has bestowed upon us. I bear witness that there is no God except Allah alone without any partners. He is glorified and well above being compared with anyone or anything. He is greater than any attribute of creation which will ultimately come to an end. I also bear witness that our Prophet and Leader Muhammad (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) is His servant and messenger, and the one who has been characterized by the best and most honored of traits and attributes. May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him, his family, and companions, the most best of companions and most honored family.
Oh Muslims, fear Allah, the Almighty, and give thanks to Allah for the favors and graces He has bestowed upon you all your life. Lessen your hopes in this life, and prepare yourselves for a sudden death, since there is no servant who has far-reaching hope except that it ends in sinful deeds. Allah says: “O you who believe! Fear Allâh and keep your duty to Him. And let every person look to what he has sent forth for the morrow, and fear Allâh. Verily, Allâh is All-Aware of what you do.” [Surah Hashr: Ayah 18]
