Dr. Tahir Wyatt reminds us to call out to Allah with meaning and intention by explaining two elements mentioned in “salaatul istikhaarah”: being steadfast on Islam, and having firm resolve to be rightly guided.
In this Friday sermon, delivered in 2018, by Shaykh Yahya Rhodus, he reminds us of a prayer of the Prophet that applies to virtually every aspect of the human experience: “O Allah, I ask you for the good of this day: its opening, its victory, its light, its blessing, and its guidance.”
There is not a single problem, calamity or distress in this world to which Allah (subḥānahu wa ta’āla) has not sent down solace through turning to Him!
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.
Two mighty Prophets of Allah who were afflicted with distress turned to Allah (subḥānahu wa ta’āla) in du’a and their du’as were so powerful that Allah answered their call and their distress was removed!
Who are these two Prophets of Allah and what special du’as did they make that guaranteed a response!
Join Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi in this latest Khutbah entitled ‘Du’a in distress & calamity that guarantees a response!’ and discover the special du’as that the mighty Prophets of Allah made to remove their hardship.
Shaykh Tahir reminds us the importance of dua and reminds us of a specific dua that is mentioned in a hadith. The dua seeks protection from cowardice, stinginess, temptations of the dunya, and the punishment of the grave.
We have this common belief that when we make duaa, Allah will immediately solve our problem, otherwise He is not happy with us. In this khutbah, Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan teaches us that this can’t be further from the truth.
A simple look at the trials of all the messengers of Allah will prove it: Prophet Nuh made daawa for 950 years, but those closest to him never followed; Prophet Muhammad made duaa for his uncle, but Abu Lahab continued to fight him; and Prophet Yacoub cried so much over the loss of his son Youssef that he lost his eyesight.
The story of Maryam is another inspiring example. She was in such shock when the angel told her that she will have a child – to her this was the worst punishment – that she prayed to Allah that she would rather die than face humiliation in her community. As it turns out, the child who caused all that grief, Prophet Esa (AS), was the reason she is being honoured until today, hundreds of years later.
The power of duaa can’t be overstated. The profound supplication Musa (AS) made at one of the weakest moments of his life is an inspiring example of this, as Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan reminds us in this khutbah.
After growing up in Pharaoh’s court, Musa suddenly finds himself a fugitive from the law and roams the desert until he reaches Madian. Desperate, he asks his creator for help and vows to take anything He provides. But that’s not all. He also hopes for forgiveness for the sin he committed by doing as much good as he can in the world. At that very moment the entire course of his life changes.
The lesson learnt is that we must understand the way duaa works and know that the sincerity of our duaa is measured according to how far we accept what Allah provides with gratitude, no matter how little it seems, and to always help others more desperate than us.
In this important session, Mufti Nazim Mangera discusses the following three important things related to Dua which are rarely discussed together:
1) Fiqh of wiping hands on the face after Dua
2) Fiqh of Quran completion Dua in Salat and outside Salat
3) One of five things that can happen to our Dua
In the introduction, Mufti Nazim Mangera discuss how there are scholars on YouTube and other sites who are not honest enough when discussing Fiqh issues.
Dua (Supplication), something that carries so much power, yet has been neglected by many muslims around the world. What should one do to have his or her dua accepted? Shaykh Navaid Aziz explains to us the power of dua.
Imam Suhaib Webb talks about the power of prayer and supplication to Allah for protection and strength from the traps of the dunya. He also discusses the idea of “transhumanism” or how people can live forever.
An important lecture, delivered by Mufti Muhammad ibn Adam al-Kawthari at Sheffield University on November 7, 2011, discussing the true spirit of Supplication (dua) and Reliance upon Allah (tawakkul), in addition to the Islamic viewpoint on Ruqya and Amulets
In his second lecture to non-Muslim middle school and high school teachers, Murad moves on to the more outward manifestations of the Islamic tradition. He explains the sunnah as being the “backbone” of a Muslim’s daily life and provides a brief and simple explanation of it’s vital role in Islam. He then focuses the remainder of his time on the Islamic law, its various sources, and its history. And in closing, the speaker looks at a few case studies of the practice of ijtihad in the Muslim world. (Recorded at the Dar al Islam Teachers’ Institute seminar). Other topics discussed: dua (supplication), Salman Rushdie, medhabs (schools of thought), tabacco and smoking, AIDS, abortion, contraception, and artificial insemination.
