Nouman Ali Khan – God is the Light of the Heavens and the Earth: The Verse of Light

For more than sixty years, the Moroccan scholar Si Fudul al-Huwari of the Qarawiyyin gave commentaries on his favorite topic: the Verse of Light. Those who knew him said he never gave the same talk twice. This verse, often a favorite of Qur’an reciters, has been the subject of countless commentaries with innumerable scholars finding limitless meanings. Even though the metaphor can be understood by anyone, the verse does not surrender an obvious meaning. This talk will examine some of the ways that scholars have understood this verse and how we can benefit from its meanings in our own lives.

Nouman Ali Khan – Story Night: The Story of Musa (Moses)

The Qur’an has remarkable beauty from countless perspectives but one that has always really captured my curiosity is the incredible style of divine story telling. Many books are written about the stories of the prophets (may Allah’s peace be upon them all). Such books tell the accounts of these great men based on authentic sources. Excerpts from various Surahs, Ahadeeth and narrations come together to paint a thorough chronological picture. Is there more to these stories than the chronology of events? Allah the Most High chose to tell parts of Ibrahim’s (AS) account in one Surah, and some parts in another. Why did He do that? Is there something about the way Allah Himself tells the story that we are missing out on?

You have probably heard the story Of Musa (PBUH) but never like this.

Musa, known as Moses in the Old Testament, is a prophet, messenger, lawgiver and leader in Islam. In Islamic tradition instead of introducing a new religion, Moses is regarded by Muslims as teaching and practicing the religion of his predecessors and confirming the scriptures and prophets before him. The Quran states that Moses was sent by Allah (one God) to the Pharaoh of Egypt and the Israelites for guidance and warning. Moses is mentioned more in the Quran than any other individual, and his life is narrated and recounted more than that of any other prophet. According to Islam, all Muslims must have faith in every prophet which includes Moses and his brother Aaron (Harun). Nouman Ali Khan introduces us to Prophet Moses in this brief talk.

In this insightful khutba, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani of SeekersHub Toronto (http://www.SeekersHub.org/) explains what guidance is; that the straight path is the direct way to the desired goal; what the believer seeks in life–Allah’s closeness and pleasure, and eternal success; the relationship between the straight path and the good of this life and the next… and more.

Shaykh Faraz emphasizes that this seeking of the straight path relates to seeking Allah–and making the right choice–in every life circumstance.

This Friday sermon was delivered at the Brampton Islamic Centre.
