Irregardless of his technological achievements, man must face up to his very beginnings.
Man was, after all, created. He was created with purpose and placed upon this earth to be
tested. As the earth he dwells upon, he too is temporary.
Try as he may, he must own up to his actions and behavior. For there is a God ever watching
and taking account of what he does. No matter man’s temporal achievements he will never surpass
God’s laws. The laws of God are immutable.
Yet sadly man chooses to “deny”. So he lives his life in rebellion. Fight as he may, he can only dwell within the very laws he wants to deny. God originated his beginning and his end. He will die, be raised and questioned. How he chooses to live this life will decide his eternal fate. The choice is his. The choice is ours.
Having a day out waiting for the family to shop I was hanging out with our taxi driver Sa’eed, may Allah have mercy upon him. We were talking and he told me a story about a conversation between a Muslim Scholar and a Priest.
If you have been practising your Arabic maybe you can understand a few words. If not maybe you can get someone to help you. How many words do you understand?
Question: Why did the Priest say that Muslims are not going to Paradise? How did the Muslim scholar in the story turn all of the points made by the Priest around?
Indeed our brother Sa’eed may not be speaking the type of fluent Arabic that you are learning in books. Nevertheless his Arabic is how you buy your bread, speak to your doctor and take a cab to the right store with the help of Allah. We ask Allah for His mercy, forgiveness, guidance and His help.
Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem wa salaatu was salaam ‘alaan nabiyyinaa Muhammad,
A brother, may Allah reward him, gave me this book long ago when I was living in Philly. It’s by one of the scholars in Yemen, may Allah preserve him and all our upright ‘Ulama.
Question: In this passage he highlights one of the major mistakes of the Jamaatu Tabligh. What is their mistake? Can you read and understand it? If not can you ask someone to read it to you? Barakallaahu feekum.
When I entered Islaam over 20 years ago I began with the Jamaatu Tabligh. They were the predominant group in Georgia at that time. After 2 years of being a Muslim some of their mistakes became apparent to me and Allah continued to guide me towards the sunnah. But the mistake I just posted above was never clear to me until I read it in this book, recently. Allah is truly God and truly The Most Merciful.
As Sheikh Rabee’a ibn Haadee, may Allah have mercy upon him and give him strength, said to us in his home some years back in Makkah, “How long will you allow others to translate your religion for you?” This is why learning Arabic makes ALL the difference!
I have included the beginning of the book in PDF. Very nice read for us beginners in Arabic.
Join Abu Muhammad al-Looweesiaani with his first guest Abu ‘Abbaad AbdulMutakabbeer (may Allah reward and preserve him) as they review Sheikh Muhammad Sa’eed Rslan’s book The Reality Of The Dunya And The Reality Of Death.
Listen as Abu ‘Abbaad reads and translates the words of our Sheikh (may Allah preserve and raise him in eemaan) as Sheikh Rslan teaches us using examples of the righteous Salaf (predecessors) of old.
Adding more to our Women’s collection, Good News For The Strange Sister, was recorded in Los Angeles, CA at the Masjid where our Sheikh Fareed Abdullah (may Allah preserve him) is the Imam.
We had just gotten off of a long flight from the east coast, landed in LA and went to the Masjid in time for the khutbah. Word spread that Abu Uwais had just arrived. We were all tired and I was looking for a hotel and a bed. Someone came out and told Abu Uwais, “There are people here including sisters. They want to know if you can give a talk.” He looked at me and I looked at him. I said, “Give me a few minutes to unpack the audio.”
Abu Uwais then requested to use Fareed’s library which was upstairs in the Masjid. He came down shortly after I had set up the recording gear. He got on the microphone and the rest was history.
I understand that some people cried that day, from the affect of this talk which Abu Uwais had not prepared for in advance. I was in shock by the ease of delivery and fluency that I heard coming from him. But with Allah all things are possible.
When I came home to Philly after the trip I listened to it again. I thought about how it had touched those sisters who listened. So I gave it the title that you see.
If any sister is feeling low, sad or depressed I ask Allah, our God, to allow this talk to reach her as it reached our sisters on that sunny blessed day in Los Angeles with my dear companion whom I miss so very much, Abu Uwais Abdullah Ahmad Ali (may Allah have mercy upon his soul and those he left behind).
