Allāh is al-Raḥmān al-Raḥīm

  Shaykh Muḥammad Ghālib al-ʿUmarī

A short and inspiring khuṭbah at Masjid al-Furqān (TROID) on 2018.07.27 wherein Shaykh Muḥammad Ghālib al-ʿUmarī delivered his first address to the community of Toronto, Canada. The noble speaker explains the beautiful names and attributes of Allah, al-Raḥmān (The Most Merciful) and al-Raḥīm (The Giver of Mercy). The Shaykh explains the general mercy that encompasses all of His creatures (in this world), and the specific mercy for the believers on the Day of Reckoning. He concludes by speaking about being merciful to others and how the extremists (terrorists) have opposed the manners of the Muslims with their horrendous behaviour.

Allāh Is Greater

   

The need for the heart to be pure and clean is the only way to good deeds and success whereas the corruption of the heart leads to sin and the hellfire.

Allāh Is Over His Creation and His Throne in Particular

  Abū ʿUways

In a highly beneficial khuṭbah, Abū ʿUways (raḥimahullāh) taught and insightfully explained the correct Muslim belief of Allāh's ʿUlūʾ, Allāh's Highness, Allāh's Loftiness, saying, "Allāh is above everything in general, and above His Throne in particular."

Benefit: 99 Names of Allāh on Your Hands?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Today, people try to add things to the religion that they find suitable for it. There is no doubt that this is one of the gateways to innovation. These people speak about things in the religion that no scholar upon the Sunnah preceded them in and this opposes the way of our Salaf. Imām Aḥmad Ibn Ḥanbal said, "You should beware of speaking about an issue in which you are not preceded by a scholar." A common saying among the people today is that the lines on the hand indicate 99 Names of Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'ala.Our brother Abū al-ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson discusses this issue...From the lectures entitled, 'Aqīdah Course- Summer Course.

Benefit: Allāh Can Do Away With the Entire Creation If He Likes

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

A response to some of the atheists and so-called academics who imply that Allāh cannot do all things? Some say, “Allāh cannot just do away with the creation!” How do we answer this claim? Is it even allowed to suggest such things?

Benefit: Allāh Decreed the Division of the Ummah

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh ‘Abd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz (رحمه الله) said:

Without a doubt, this division causes pain to every Muslim. It is mandatory upon the Muslims to gather upon the truth and to work together upon goodness and piety; however, Allāh decreed the division of the Ummah due to His great wisdom and praiseworthy objectives, for which He should be praised. No one knows its details except Him. Differentiating His awliyā’ [i.e friends] from His enemies and differentiating those who exert themselves to seek the truth from those who turn away from it, following their desires, are from those objectives.

Benefit: Be Known to Allāh

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

The Messenger of Allāh ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam said:

(( تعرَّف إلى الله في الرَّخاء يعرِفكَ في الشِّدَّة ))
«Be known to Allāh in times of prosperity, and He will know you in times of adversity.»*

*Collected by Aḥmad in al-Musnad 3/307, Hannād in al-Zuhd 1/304, ʿAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Ḥumayd in his Musnad pp. 214; al-Ṭabarānī in al-Kabīr #11243; al-Ḥākim in al-Mustadrak 3/623; al-Lālikāʾī in Iʿtiqād Ahl al-Sunnah 4/614; and al-Bayhaqī in Shuʿab al-Īmān 2/27. 

Benefit: Increase in Your Love of Allāh

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

We have been ordered in the Book and the Sunnah to follow the way of the Companions, may Allāh be pleased with them. From the greatest attributes of the Companions was the softness of their hearts and the tremendous love of Allāh, subḥānahu wa ta'aala. How many narrations mention the weeping of the Companions after hearing verses from the Book of Allāh? Where are we in this regard? Listen to this strong admonition from Abū Khadījah and take heed of this important aspect of the religion. May Allāh increase you in guidance.

Benefit: Loving and Hating for the Sake of Allāh

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Question: What does it mean to love for the sake of Allāh and to hate for the sake of Allāh?

Answer: “Its meaning is that you do not love a person except for the sake of Allāh. You shouldn’t love someone because he gave you some wealth or that he benefited you in a worldly matter, rather you should love him because he is a righteous person.

Likewise, hating for the sake of Allāh is not hating the one who has not given you anything, rather it is hating [for the sake of Allāh], the one who opposes obedience to Allāh and the one who is an enemy to Allāh. These are the reasons to hate someone. You don’t hate someone because he hasn’t given you anything or because there is a feud between the both of you and the likes of this.”

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān
