Answer Allāh and His Messenger When He Calls You to What Will Give You Life
A khuṭbah (2015/03/27) given at Masjid al-Furqān (TROID) by our noble brother, Kāshiff Khān, incuring the audience to be obedient to Allāh and his Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam), a sign of īmān in the heart. The sermon was part of the Points of Benefit from Sharḥ al-Sunnah, the Outstanding Book of Imām al-Barbahārī seminar.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّـهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ ۖ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّـهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ
O you who believe! Answer Allāh (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger when he (ṣalla Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) calls you to that which will give you life, and know that Allāh comes in between a person and his heart (i.e. He prevents an evil person to decide anything). And verily to Him you shall (all) be gathered.
[Sūrah al-Anfāl, 8:24]
