Khutba: An Awakening with Ramadan

09. April 2021
Dear Honourable Muslims! In the ayah that I have just read, Allah (swt) says, “O believers! Fasting is prescribed for you—as it was for those before you…” In the hadith that I have just read Prophet Muhammed (saw) provides us with the following glad tidings, "Whoever fasts during the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith, and hoping to attain Allah's rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven."

Khutba: Shaytan’s Field of Influence

01. April 2021
Dear Congregation! Our Lord, out of His mercy, has revealed our friend and our enemy. For example, he declared that Satan and his army were our enemies in Surah Fatir: “Indeed, Satan is an enemy to you; so take him as an enemy. He only invites his party to be among the companions of the Blaze”. What we need is not to be friends with our enemy, Satan and his friends. Because the devil wishes us to obey the what Allah has forbidden.

Khutba: The Night of Acquittal as a means for Allah’s Forgiveness

25. March 2021
Dear Brothers! When we were nearing the month of Rajab, we were making the dua of our Prophet ﷺ: “O Allah, bless us in Rajab and Sha`bān and enable us to reach Ramadan”. We have completed the month of Rajab, may Allah accept our deeds in this month. We are currently in the middle of the month of Sha’ban. According to Usama bin Zaid (r.a), apart from Ramadan, the Prophet ﷺ observed the most amount of fasting during the month of Sha’ban. When asked about his many fasts during Sha’ban the Prophet responded “That is a month to which people do not pay attention, between Rajab and Ramadan, and it is a month in which deeds are lifted up to the Lord of the Worlds. I like for my deeds to be lifted up when I am fasting.”

Moreover, the immigrants and Muslims are represented as problematic types in these curricula, reinforcing racist stereotypes. Saying that “the school books cover the subject of cultural and religious diversity in a problematic way and this has to change.” Altaş resumed his statement as follows:

Khutba: Masjid Manners

18. March 2021
Dear Brothers and Sisters! Our masjids are our holy places that gather us inside, give peace and confidence, the sign of the existence of Islam in that region, and ensures our unity. At the same time, our masjids, in the words of Rasulullah (saw): “The most beloved places to Allah are the mosques.” Because, our masjids, are sacred places that offer messages of salvation to humanity, stop non-belief and ignorance, aim to raise a community of knowledge and wisdom, and send calls to people, especially Muslims, to act together in human identity.

Khutba: To Be Well-Spoken

12. March 2021
Dear Brothers and Sisters! One of the most important elements that make a society strong and peaceful is the sincere communication between individuals in the society and being truthful when speaking. Correct and soft dialogues will contribute to the goodness and peace of the society. On the other hand, harsh and rude communications will put people at distance and cause them to move away from each other. Friendships and even relatives will be affected by this, that is, all human relations will be greatly damaged by these situations.
