There are 99 special attributes assigned to God and are mentioned within the Quran. It must be remembered, that God’s names and attributes are not limited to only 99.
The shaikh goes into detail about the fiq of fasting. As the prophet (saw)
said "some of you fast just for hunger and thirst" reason being we are
not aware of the rules of fasting. The aim of this lecture is to make
you aware and make you among those who benifit from ramadan.
As gabriel (as) said curse be the one when ramadan comes and he
has not benifitted from it. The shaikh outline the many benifits of fasting.
What is a maqroow, sunnah and fard fast.
O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for
those before you, that you may (learn) self-restraint. (93:11)
The Shaikh gives a detail explaination of Taqwa, what is the definition
of taqwa? how one can gain taqwa? how one can protect it? Taqwa is
such an important aspect without it we can not enter paradise.
...And take a provision (with you) for the journey, but the best provision
is At-Taqwa (piety, righteousness). So fear Me, O men of understanding
The Prophet (saw) said "The Bani Isra'el will be split into 71 sects
all in the hellfire except one sect the Christian will be spilt into 72
sects all in the hellfire except one and my ummah will be spilt into
73 sects all in the hellfire except one..." Because of this hadith the
Shaikh outlines 15 cancers that have been infected by this ummah
as UK is a fertile ground to spread these cancers. The aim of this
lecture is to refute these cancers according to Quran and Sunnah
and to invite them back to the acceedah of ahl ul sunnah wal
jama'at and to unite the ummah as one body because unity is fard.
As Allah say
And Hold fast, all of you together, to the rope of Allah (i.e this
Quran). and be not divided among yourselfs, and remember
Allah's favour on You...(3:103)
The shaikh outlines the many merits of Ramadan. As Ramadan is such an
important aspect of Islam we wait eagerly many months beforehand.
The shaikh expands on why we was given the gift of Ramadan, its importance,
the benefits, the night of power (laylatul qadr), and fasting as Allah say:-
O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those
before you, that you may (learn) self-restraint. (the Holy Quran 93:11)
Ramadan such a blessed month will we be among those who will benefit from
it or be as those who the prophet (saw) said "some of you fast and only get
hunger and thirst". The shaikh explains how we can save ourselves from
hunger and thirst and get the full benefit of Ramadan.
One of the greatest points of contention today is the validity of following one of the four Sunni juridical schools (madhhab). By following a madhhab, we are following the prophetic guidance more scrupulously, as we are deferring to the understanding of that guidance as it has been re?ned by successive generations of scholars.
In this class, Imam Zaid Shakir explains what a madhhab is, what it means to follow a madhhab and why a simplistic “return” to the Qur’an and Sunnah will not eliminate the main reasons for the scholars differing on certain issues. He also examines the categories of legal rulings, ‘blind following’ (taqlid) and many other important issues. This recording is highly recommended for anyone seeking to understand what a madhhab is and the importance of that institution.
On the anniversary of the Miraj, Hamza Yusuf gave a commentary on Sidi Ahmed Zarruq’s “advice” to the one who yearns nearness to his Lord. Topics such as divine unity, morality, repentance, and the golden rule were discussed, and Hamza Yusuf reminded us of the qualities of good character that are required to travel swiftly on the path of Islam. This is a timeless lecture of practical spiritual guidance, which the seeker of knowledge will never tire of listening.
This is an invaluable talk for anyone interested in effectively communicating the teachings of Islam to people of other faiths. Hamza Yusuf describes the gentle style of the Prophet, peace be upon him, when speaking to people about Islam and his emphasis on talking to people at a level they can comprehend according to their own state. Hamza Yusuf reminds us to look at people of other faiths with the eye of mercy, to be tolerant and respectful of people’s views, and to remember that being a good example to others speaks more than a thousand words. An excellent speech for Muslims who want to share the beauty of Islam with other people of other beliefs.
