In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
95:1 By the fig and the olive!
95:2 And mount Sinai!
95:3 And this city made secure!—
95:4 Certainly We created man in the best make.
95:5 Then We render him the lowest of the low,
95:6 Except those who believe and do good; so theirs is a reward never to be cut off.
95:7 So who can give the lie to thee after (this) about the Judgment?
95:8 Is not Allah the Best of the Judges?
In this Khutba Brother Talha recites Chapter 95 (Al Tin – The Fig) of the Holy Quran and then gives a detailed analysis of the Chapter.
The video embedded above shows conflict erupt in the Israel Parliament during an apparent debate, which was discussing the banning of loudspeakers at Mosques for calling of the Azan, this Palestinian member objected to the proposed bill by giving the Azan to much anger and shouting.
The trial of wealth is very real, with many examples of how wealth can lead to pride and arrogance evident in our societies today. It is detailed in Chapter 18 of the Holy Quran, and in this khutba, we look at how the parable in these verses relates to us today, and what we can learn from it.
The UK was shocked by the video footage which emerged of two men who had killed and then tried to dismember a man in Woolwich last year.
During the attack and then later in court one of the men, Michael Adebolajo, a convert to Islam, tried to claim that he was compelled by Allah and the teachings from the Holy Quran to commit this act of murder.
In the above video we analyse his claim and correct his twisted interpretation of certain verses that he used to justify an act of cowardly murder and show that what these men did is in fact in direct violation of the teachings in the Holy Quran.
We also look at another incident which happened at around the same time, this time acts of terror against Muslims in Birmingham, and ask why that incident did not receive as much press attention.
The Quran tells us that Allah has placed “signs” of His existence in all the creation which is around us. To find and see those signs, man has to apply his understanding and thinking. Human beings have to do two things at the same time: (1) Remember God in their hearts, and (2) ponder over the working of nature by using their brains and reasoning. This will make them realise that everything in the universe has a purpose, and therefore man’s existence also has a purpose, and his deeds have consequences.
We look at how man is weak and despite guidance and warning by Allah prone to making mistakes. But Allah forgives him when he turns to Allah and repents sincerely. We look at this in the context of the story of Adam and his fall from grace.
An Ahmadi jeweller in Silanwali, Sargodha was charged with blasphemy for the second time in his life for “posing as a Muslim” and for putting up a translation of the Quranic text in his shop.
Muhammad Ashraf, who was earlier charged along with his co-workers in 2009 for posing as Muslims, was charged with blasphemy on July 23 this year under Section 298-C on the complaint of Hafiz Muhammad Imran.
Ashraf was sent to Central Jail Sargodha on July 24 and was released on bail on the exchange of bail bonds worth Rs50,000 on July 31. The case is under trial at a local magisterial court in Sargodha. Continue reading →
In this khutba the theory of Evolution is explained in a very simple and non-technical, even inaccurate manner. It is also considered whether it is against what the Holy Quran teaches. The view expressed is that it is a theory which means a possible explanation and that science develops by putting forward theories to explain observable data. There is nothing Islamic or un-Islamic in these things.
In Chapter 66 Verses 11 and 12 of the Holy Quran Allah says that the believers who achieve the highest level of purity are Mary.
Once a believer becomes Mary then Allah breaths into him His spirit just like He breathed His spirit into Mary to make her pregnant with Jesus. Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad wrote this in his book without giving reference to the fact that he was taking this from the Holy Quran. Our opponents subject Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s statement to much ridicule. We wonder what they will say now that we have shown that Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was simply re-iterating the message of the Holy Quran.
Scott Gentries told reporters Wednesday that his deliberately limited grasp of Islamic history and culture was still more than sufficient to shape his views of the entire Muslim world.
Gentries, 48, said he had absolutely no interest in exposing himself to further knowledge of Islamic civilization or putting his sweeping opinions into a broader context of any kind, and confirmed he was “perfectly happy” to make a handful of emotionally charged words the basis of his mistrust toward all members of the world’s second-largest religion.
“I learned all that really matters about the Muslim faith on 9/11,” Gentries said in reference to the terrorist attacks on the United States undertaken by 19 of Islam’s approximately 1.6 billion practitioners. “What more do I need to know to stigmatize Muslims everywhere as inherently violent radicals?”
