Yasir Qadhi Lectures

Paris Bombings and the Rise of Islamophobia

In this Khutbah (sermon), Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi discusses the recent trials facing the Muslims at the eve of Anti-Muslim rhetoric in the American Election run-up and the backlash after the recent Paris bombings. Dr. Qadhi provides two practical ways Muslims can face and overcome such trials and challenges in America (and globally).

American Foreign Policy and the Rise of ISIS

The rise of ISIS took almost all political analysts by surprise. For many, it quite literally appeared as if this group came out of nowhere. While the vast majority of Muslims are appalled at the brutality and viciousness of some of their tactics, the question does arise as to how such a fringe group could draw together thousands of people to support them. In this bold and frank talk, which was addressed primarily to a non-Muslim audience, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi mentions some of the root causes that explains why this group is popular in some Muslim circles. The complete break down of the Iraqi civil infrastructure and economic stability, after decades of American sanctions and two illegal invasions, cannot be ignored as we try to understand the appeal of such militant groups.

Doubts about Islam: Guidance for Challenging Times

Why are Muslims backwards? Why is the Muslim world rife with war, poverty and corruption? Shaykh Yasir Qadhi gives several reasons for this to ponder on and consider when asking these questions.

Speaking Truth to Power and Standing Up Against Oppression

In this powerful and emotional talk, delivered in front of the largest annual gathering of Muslims in North America, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi shares his thoughts on the current state of Islamophobia in America, and the dismal situation in Muslim lands and how we should work together to speak out against oppression and injustice.

In Pursuit of the Middle Path

Allah mentions in the Quran that Muslims are a ‘middle nation’ (Ummah Wasat). What exactly does this phrase mean? And how is Islam a ‘middle’ path between all other paths?

Join Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi in this electrifying lecture that explains, in many different areas, how exactly Islam is the ‘middle path’ in all affairs of human life.

Unity does not mean Uniformity & The Hadith of the 73 sects

“My Ummah will divide into seventy-three sects all of which except one will go to the Fire, and they (i.e. the Saved Sect) are those who are upon what I and My Companions are upon” ~ Prophet Muhammad (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam)

One of the most oft-commented tradition of our Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) that is echoed from the mimbars of every Masjid & the focus point of many conversations of our over-zealous youth. Yet many questions arise. Are the majority of the Ummah misguided?! And is every ‘deviation’ automatically bound to the Fire of Hell? And which group is the Saved Sect?

Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi answers these crucial questions, and more, in his latest lecture.

An unmissable lecture for EVERY Muslim.

Unity in the Muslim Ummah & The Islamic Brotherhood

The Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Among Allah’s servants are people who are neither Prophets nor martyrs, but whom the Prophets and martyrs will deem fortunate because of their high status with Allah.”

They asked: “O Messenger of Allah inform us of who they are.”

He said: “They are people who loved each other for Allah’s sake, without being related to one another or being tied to one another by the exchange of wealth. By Allah, their faces will be luminous and they will be upon light. They will feel no fear when the people will be feeling fear and they will feel no grief when the people will be grieving.” ~ (Sunan Abu Dawud)

Allah will ask on the Day of Judgement: ‘Where are those who loved each other for the sake of My glory? Today, (on a day when there is no shade but mine) I shall shade them with My shade.” ~ (Sahih Muslim)

The Islam brotherhood transcends cast, colour, race & nationality it is a permanent bond based on belief & acceptance of Allah as our deity & Prophet Muhammad (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) as His final Messenger.

Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi’s powerful talk from his trip to Trinidad on ‘Unity in the Muslim Ummah & the Islamic Brotherhood’

A talk for every Muslim, Recorded on 3rd January 2014

The Massacre of Karbala: A Historical Analysis

The Massacre of Karbala: A Historical Analysis” from the Sunni tradition.

“Is it appropriate for you to kill the likes of me? I am the son of the daughter of your Prophet. There is no other grandson of a prophet who remains on the face of the earth aside from me.”

Journey back in history to revisit one of the most controversial and misconstrued events in Islamic history: The Massacre of Karbala.

Are Sunnis ‘on the side of Yazid’ or ‘on the side of Husayn’? Who is to blame for the death of Husayn? Should we curse Yazid?

Join Dr. Yasir Qadhi as he analyzes and contextualizes the events that led up to the martyrdom of al-Husayn (radiAllahu `anhu), its occurrence and aftermath.

Embracing Islamophobia

With the rise of “Islamophobia” in the past ten years, we have also seen a drastic rise in converts to Islam. Our distress has brought da‘wah to our doorsteps. In this lecture Shaykh Yasir Qadhi teaches us how to rise from the shadows and preserve our dignity through the truth of Islam.

Dealing with Theological Differences in the Real World

Sunni, Shīʿa, Salafi, Sufi, Deobandi, Ahl’l-Sunnah wa’l-Jamā’ah – Why do we have all these labels can’t we just say we’re Muslims and that’s it! To often our communities become divided on differences in thoughts and ideas, acknowledging & welcoming the various levels of religious beliefs is an important first step towards building diverse communities & bridging the gap to put all titles aside.

A Response to the Critics

“He who thinks that he is free from the criticism of people is a madman for even the Lord of the Worlds Himself has been wrongfully criticized.” ~ [Imam Al-Shafi’i]

Sanctity & Value of Life: Egypt, Syria, Burma

What we have witnessed in the past few weeks is the most traumatic series of events that the Ummah has witnessed since the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

What should be our response to the current international crisis of the suffering of the Ummah.

The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. Peace it is until the emergence of dawn. ~ [Surat Al-Qadr]

When the battleground is cleared and it is simply you and your own soul, your enemy is at its weakest… and victory is within your reach… All you have to do is grab it!

“And whoever is drawn away from the hellfire and entered into paradise then he is indeed Victorious” – [Surah al-Imran:185]
