“The Awe-Inspiring Majesty of Allah (swt)”

Single CD Set

Traditional Islamic scholars have classified the attributes of Allah into two categories: those reflecting Allah swt’s Jamaal (beauty) and those reflecting His Jalaal (might and majesty). Often we focus only on His Jamali attributes of Allah whilst ignoring His Jalali attributes. This talk describes in detail how we, as believers, need to rekindle not only hope in Allah which His Attributes of Jamaal instill, but also fear of Allah (swt) which is necessary to humble us before His Jalaal. It reminds us of Allah’s (swt) complete Predominance over all our matters. That is why in Qur’an, Allah (swt) has Used different words to depict the feeling of believers who truly embody His fear such as khauf, khashiyyah, and taqwa. This is a fear borne out of love, out of a desire to not disappoint the Beloved and is therefore meant to be a motivational force in our deen.

“Ten Ways of Being Forgiven by Allah (swt)”

Single CD Set

Our reality is that we are the sinful and sinning slaves of Allah (swt) the Exhalted. However, as often as we sin, it is difficult for us to find ways to get ourselves forgiven. This talk details on ten ways of forgiveness mentioned by Imam Ibn Taymiyyah on his work “Al-Imam Al-Ausat.” Actively seeking repentance (taubah) is but one of these means; Allah (swt) has Created other things within the Deen itself that are meant to absolve a believer. Acts of piety, du’a for oneself and for others, even the tests of this world and the dreaded trials of the Hereafter, are each powerful enough to attain forgiveness. And it seems that ultimately, if all else fails, the infinite and overwhelming Mercy and Grace of Allah (swt) is the anchor for the fallen believer.

“Leaving Sin”

Single CD Set

Allah (swt) the Exhalted Says in the Qur’an:

“You should leave all the sins that you commit outwardly, and the ones that you do inwardly.” (6:120)

This ayah can also be loosely translated as: leave every single act of displeasure of Allah (swt), leave every last drop of sin, whether that is external, or the faintest sinful emotion and desire. Although it is human to err, we learn from Sayyidina Adam’s narrative that it is even more human to wipe away that error. This can only happen when a believer realizes the danger / gravity / stench / price / cost of sin. This talk discusses the anatomy of a sin and how to let go of it; it is enough for Allah (swt) that we try in the smallest way but with the fullest extent of our heart. This Deen was revealed by Allah (swt) to spiritually uplift humanity and to extract them from the darkness of their sins.

“Being Capable or Being Accepted by Allah (swt)”

Single CD Set

Azazil worshiped Allah (swt) devotedly for hundreds of years and earned himself the title of Tawas al-Malaika, the companion of the Angels. Yet a single act of persistent disobedience cast him outstand of Allah’s (swt) Mercy for all of Eternity. Thus the Qur’an testifies that being capable and accomplished (qabil) does not guarantee that a person is accepted (maqbul) in the Eyes of Allah (swt) as well. In this talk, the stories of the past people, such as Sayyidina Ibrahim and Sayydah Maryam are recounted to motivate the listener to aspire to qubuliyyah, while the stories of Iblis and Firawn are told to take a lesson from their lack of qubuliyyah. Indeed, having a constant worry of qubuliyyah by Allah (swt) should be an inseparable attribute of all the believers and has been a marked characteristic of the Blessed Prophets and the friends of Allah (swt) (Auliya).

“Addictions and Afflictions of Youth”

Single CD Set

Addictions-and-Afflictions-of-Youth-web

“In one sentence we have captured the reality of our youth: our youth is pretty much laziness and desires.”

Most young men and women find their deeds and their time being sucked away in the quicksand of desires and procrastination; whether it is smoking, music, visual media or simply the addiction of “doing nothing”! This talk addresses these pressing issues in light of teachings of our Deen and helps young members of the Muslim ummah de-activate their previous addictions and re-activate the connection with Allah (swt). Make this connection your final addiction, to last you through the grave, the Date of Judgment and all of Eternity.

Workshop: Understanding Tasawwuf

Seven CD Set

“Understanding Tasawwuf” is a comprehensive audio workshop introducing the tradition of tasawwuf referred to as “tazkiyah” in the Qur’an and as “ihsan” in the SUnnah. Tasawwuf is that branch of Islamic knowledge which guides a believer along the path of inner purification and disciplining the soul, enabling a believer to become a true servant of Allah the Exhalted through tawbah, ibadah, and adherence to the Sunnah and Shari’ah. Beginning with its origins in the Qur’an and Sunnah, this workshop traces the formal development of tazkiyah and tasawwuf over time, and thus provides an overview of this tradition as practiced by pious Muslims from the earliest generations till this day. At the fore of the discussion are the hallmark features of tasawwuf , such as tariqah (the path), bay’ah (the pledge), shaykh (the guide) and different types of dhikr. Moreover, many of the popular misconceptions regarding this tradition are addressed, marking a clear distinction between Islamic and “un-Islamic” spirituality.

Workshop: Bidah & Sunnah

Three CD Set

Our Beloved Messenger, salalahoalayhewasalam, said:

“Beware of matters newly begun, for every newly begin is a bid’ah, every bid’ah is a misguidance, and every misguidance is in Hell.” (Sahih Muslim)

What is “bid’ah” and what is the meaning of this hadith? Is everything new in the Deen a blameworthy innovation by default and thereby opposed to the Sunnah? How do we know whether an act is truly a reprehensible bid’ah or not? This comprehensive audio workshop seeks to clarify the concepts of bid’ah and Sunnah within the Islamic Tradition by looking at various voluntary acts of workship of the Companions, may Allah swt be pleased with them, performed both during and after the life of the Blessed Messenger, salalhoalayhewasalam. Moreover, it engages authentic texts by classical scholars in order to show commonly established understanding of bid’ah throughout the Islamic scholarly tradition. Insightful answers are given to the questions above as well as other relate issues, including social practices popular amongst the masses today, such as commemorating the 12th Rabi al-Awwal and marking the 15th of Sha’ban as a night of worship.
