MashaALLAH! Sheikh Hamza is a great gift of ALLAH subhanahu wa ta’ala to the ummah of His Messenger Sal ALLAHu alaihi wa sallam. May ALLAH bless him, and benefit us through him. Aameen.
Great voice of reason Sheikh Hamza Yusuf is. May Allah reward him for his good intentions toward Islam. I had the pleasure to hear him deliver a superb khutbah at my Masjid about 2 months ago. Ramadan Mubarak to all Muslims.
can any one post the video to my email ? bcoz it seems no longer available
wa jazzakommoAllah khayr
AlhamduLillah.It is a good start,share our views & clear misunderstandings vth open heart.
AlhamduLillah.good start v can share & express our views 4 clear misunderstands about Islam &muslims.
first of all see the face of sheikh yousaf………its not the face of muslim….according to suunnah of nabi saw
assalamulaikum, what is the face of a muslim, brother?
Yes please brother Abdul Basit, why don’t you do us all a favor and tell us what the face of a muslim looks like. I do not have any knowledge in Islam but I do know that Allah and only Allah can judge what a muslim has in his/her heart. I hope that you are doing as much for this deen as Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, I really hope so.
They just sat around talking about the aftermath of a global problem rather than the solution to the problem.
The problem: I feel is that not enough attention and priority are given on a global level to intellectual venues such as this, which allows us to discuss how we can coexist peacefully regardless of race and religion. By “attention and priority”, i mean money.
Billions of dollars a year are being forced into media outlets such as movies, music, tv, and magazines to teach the youth about what is a successful life….more money and more material objects. Who benefits from this? The very small percentage of the masses….the wealthy. While the rest of us are left in a state of ignorrance and arrogance….jahiliyya.
So, the solution is to focus on knowledge rather than material worldly gain. And avoid funding such masses that look to strip us of our intellect.
assalamulaikum, another intectual debate not that good in the sense that there was’nt the representation of other more radical may be the wrong word, views of other religious or political organisations. It was predominately muslim audience, as usual defending Islam needed more solutions practical and realistic ones which can be achieved. The sheikh ma sha Allah is very articulate and i have been following this sheikh for many years and some of his works are in the field of excellence however the answer to the question above of what is the face of Islam is true at this juncture i cannot defend the sheikh sadly for shaving his beard and having a gotee. This was done for political reasons from what i was told but as the Prophet (SAW) said my sunnah will be like hot coals when the hour approaches. May Allah guide the sheikh back to having his beard and we all have faults but in many aspects the good in him outweighs this fault.
Never assume things or judge a person!! How do you know Sheikh Hamza Yusuf shaved his beard and decided having a goatee?? Did you personally asked him?? Probably he can’t grow one like many eastern Asiatic people. It could be biological or genetic.This is the real problem with Muslim people like you who judge other Muslim person by length of beard rather than his religious knowledge or spiritual status. How do you know what is in Sheikh Hamza’s heart?
