Khutba: The Business and Commercial Life of a Mu’min

10. September 2021
Dear Mu'mins! Our Almighty Lord orders us to look for livelihood through halal and legitimate ways, to also gain the maintenance of our family from what is halal. Accordingly, as it is our duty to involve with business and commercial life, it is also an act for commendation and appreciation. From this perspective, a commercial approach that is in-line with the legitimate frame which our religion draws and that minds the rightful due of other people should be one of the fundamental commercial perspectives of a Muslim.

Khutba: Transitioning Knowledge into Action

27. August 2021
Dear Believers! We all know that seeking knowledge is Fard upon us all. The knowledge that is fard upon all of us is “ilm-I Hal” – The knowledge and rulings to get us through our worldly responsibilities and religious requirements such as faith, ethics, wudu, prayer, fasting, zakat, haj, wedding and business. Obtaining religious knowledge in Tafseer, Hadith, Fiqh and Kalām - also general worldly knowledge in medicine, engineering, architecture and history is fard kifāyah, which means that it is not obligatory anymore for the individual to specialise in these fields, if enough people already deal with it. Despite this, knowledge should not be our sole purpose. As knowledge is a tool and actions are our aim.

Value of Time

20. August 2021
Allah (swt) the owner of time and everything says, “Blessed is He who has placed in the sky great stars and placed therein a [burning] lamp and luminous moon. And it is He who has made the night and the day in succession for whoever desires to remember or desires gratitude.”[1]. Human existence is dependent on place and time. In these realities created by Allah (swt), all creatures, especially us, maintain their liveliness. Since a place is a tangible asset, its value is more easily understood. However, since time is an intangible entity, we, as servants, can sometimes be neglectful about understanding its value and giving it its due. However, realising the importance of time and using our days, hours, minutes and even seconds accordingly is one of the conditions for our success in this world and the next.

Dear Brothers and Sisters! Allah (swt), After creating Adam (as), he also created Hawa (as).

Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.”

Khutba: Preparing for Marriage

22. July 2021
Dear Brothers and Sisters! Whilst counting the blessings Allah (swt) has bestowed upon us he mentions in the Quran: “And We created you in pairs.” And there is no doubt that the marriage bond between a man and a woman is the most beautiful bond between two people. In order to emphasise the importance of marriage, Rasulallah (saw) addressed the youth as follows: “O young men, whoever among you can afford it, let him get married, for it is more effective in lowering the gaze and guarding chastity, and whoever cannot then he should fast, for it will be a restraint for him.” Therefore, a believer finds the opportunity to complete his religion by protecting himself from haram through marriage.
