Audio: Count Your Blessings - Be Thankful to Allāh
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Ustādh Abū Idrīs gave the khuṭbah at Masjid al-Furqān (TROID) on 2018.06.29 discussing the blessings of ḥidāyah (guidance). A reminder to be thankful to Allah for his favours and guidance (to the Book and the Sunnah). The speaker encouraged the audience that when they see their rizq (provisions) diminishing, then turn to Allāh in fear. Also, when receiving blessings and increase, to turn to Allah in fear and thankfulness. He then encouraged the attendees to strive against weaknesses (temptations, evils, one's own soul) and to stand firm against the plots of the Shayṭān. He concluded by lamenting the travesty of a young man being deluded by his sheer love of leadership, such that it corrupts his intentions and leads to his misguided downfall.
