Shaykh Yasir Qadhi delivers a khutbah discussing the conversation between Prophet Musa, peace be upon him, and Prophet Khidr, peace be upon him, that takes place in the Quran as explained by Allah.
Our entire religion is based on this premise that Muhammad is the last and final messenger, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
Calamities & tragedies are part of life and it is through these trials and calamities that the true strength of a believer is shown when he turns to his Lord in humility and submissiveness leaving his affairs in the Hands of Allah and putting complete trust that Allah (subḥānahu wa ta’āla) will take care of him.
Yet lately it seems that one calamity has not left the Muslim Ummah and another one strikes even harder and in this chaos many are those whose Iman is shaken and they ask the question “Why do bad things happen? Why can’t life just be good!!”
Join Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi in this latest Khutbah entitled ‘Why Is there Evil in This World?’ and discover the wisdom behind calamities and tragedies.
In the second-half of this Khutbah Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi shares his reflections on the San Bernardino killings and advises the Muslim community to stay safe and uphold their best Muslim character in society.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
“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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
“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]
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.
The Ummah is bleeding with multiple wounds, the Ummah is being attacked by many different areas, one tragedy after another!
What should be our response to the current international crisis of the suffering of the Ummah.
Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi dedicates his latest Khutbah to the people of Egypt, Syria, Burma and all those suffering around the globe.
Laylat al-Qadr – Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi explains the timing and meaning of the most blessed night of the year.
Indeed, We sent the Qur’an down during the Night of Decree. And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree? The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. 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]
A beautiful description of the beautiful moment when the believer meets his Lord in Paradise.

As the moon of Ramadan draws near, and the stakes are as high as they have ever been, there are those who are waiting to fulfill on a promise of destiny.
At a time in which efforts are multiplied and so are rewards in which the serious roll up their sleeves, lose sleep and get to work.
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]
