Surah Al-Ikhlas is the 112th Chapter of the Holy Quran.
It is the second most important chapter of the Holy Quran after Surah Fatiha – the very first Surah. The Holy Prophet (s) is reported to have said that Surah Al-Iklhas by itself is equal to one third of the Holy Quran.
In this Khutba we look at human desires in the light of Surah Al-Ikhlas and the following chapters and verses of the Holy Quran;
Chapter 7, Verse 19
And (We said): O Adam, dwell thou and thy wife in the garden, so eat from whence you desire, but go not near this tree, lest you become of the unjust.
Chapter 3, Verse 14
Fair-seeming to men is made the love of desires, of women and sons and hoarded treasures of gold and silver and well-bred horses and cattle and tilth. This is the provision of the life of this world. And Allah — with Him is the good goal (of life).
Chapter 3, Verse 145
And no soul can die but with Allah’s permission — the term is fixed. And whoever desires the reward of this world, We give him of it, and whoever desires the reward of the Hereafter, We give him of it. And We shall reward the grateful.
Chapter 4, Verse 27
And Allah desires to turn to you (mercifully). And those who follow (their) lusts desire that you should deviate (with) a great deviation.
We read from the writings of the Promised Messiah. Mulfoozat Volume three, pages 90 to 91.
Allah sent Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah, because Muslims had strayed from the path of that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) followed.
Muslims had introduced new innovations into Islam and forsaken the example set by our beloved Prophet (pbuh). Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad came to re-establish the original teachings of Islam.
We are only three days away from our three day convention celebrating one hundred years of Lahori Ahmadiyyah propagation of Islam in the UK.
The main event, on Saturday 4th May, which is being held to commemorate and celebrate the arrival of Hazrat Khawaja Kamal-ud-Din in the UK. A number of scholars will describe the history of how he wrested control of the Shahjehan Mosque in Woking from Dr Leitner’s son and brought it back to Muslim control. He created the Muslim Mission at the Mosque and from there defended Islam throughout the world, not just in the UK. Muslims as far as Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa and South America benefited from his missionary work and defense of Islam against the attacks of Christian missionaries.
Don’t miss these interesting lectures and presentations. There will not be another such celebration for another 100 years.
We will be live broadcasting the whole day as usual for all the people around the world who will not be able to attend.
