      I would just like to know Why there always seems to be an American preaching and on video never anybody from Pakistan or any other muslim country After all the true Islam is from Pakistan

      • fskhsh says:

        Pakistan is a country filld with misguidance and too much innovations(bidah) and this is coming from a Pakistani.

        Myra Wood,

        Islam is for all mankind, not Pakistanis only. Where did you get that bidah from? Authu bi Allah!
        It is good that Americans who embrace Islam are giving lectures in America and elsewhere. It shows the diversity in Islam, that it is not just Arabs or Pakistanis, but for all humanity. Learn Islam and change your thinking.

        As an American convert, I am well-aware that the best of Islamic traditions are preserved in their original Arabic and I for one am deeply grateful for English-speaking shuyookh with such profound Islamic insight and Western cultural relevance as Shaykh Hamza Yusuf. With out such leaders in our community, knowledge would be VERY difficult to come by. He himself sacrificed a great part of his life abroad in West Africa and the Middle East attaining knowledge and spiritual training from the source of Islamic thought, subhanaAllah.. imagine if he wasn’t here to relay the messages.

        You are an ignorant fool

  2. Diyana Abdullah says:

    Alhamduillah, MashaAllah, such an excellent kutbah by Sheikh Hamza. Our lack of knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah and adherance to them is going to mark our downfall. May Allah swt. guide us and us help, ameen. Knowledge is POWER! May Allah swt. bless Sheikh Hamza and his family immensely, ameen.

  3. Abubakar Kasim says:

    Amazing talk by Sh. Hamza. May Allah bless him, protect him and preserve him with good health. He is such an honest man, dynamic speaker and a great intellectual. Not only Muslims, humanity ought to reflect his words of wisdom. Extremists on both side of the fence have hijacked the arena and are calling the shots. The majority are silent. Muslims have acted irrational, wild and foolishly in their protests. In doing so, they have made us all look like fools.

  4. Anwar says:

    This is a great message.The way of the sunnah

  5. Kishwar says:

    Mashallah very good khutba.

  6. SKN says:

    JAK – but please tell the people attending these sermons that are been filmed not to walk or talk in front of the camera! Its so annoying 🙂

  7. sufideensoldier says:

    Bismillah: i ask my shaykh may Allah preserve him in good health and memory, what is the greatest threat to the muslims” he said ignorance !!! jaz- ya shaykh hamza

    I am Pakistani in Makkah, and I feel sorry about condition of muslims in Pakistan. There are different sects. All don’t do Biddah, but many do without knowing that they are doing Shirk. The religious leaders are also misguiding people for their political/worldly gains. Islam is for all humanity and I am getting inspirations from reverted mulsims who are now doing dawah including Mr. Abdul raheem green, Yusuf Estes, Ahmad deedath. The fact is, they do research more than we culturally born muslims of Pakistan. I even myself is studying Quran at age of 36 and I am amazed what’s there in Quran. I am so much angry on Pakistani religious leaders and media who tells just specific ayahs. I don’t see if their approach is different from christians.
