The Journey of the Heart - 1

Looking for Serenity? Try Islam (Exclusive Video)

You know, was it last year or the year before, in the United Kingdom in the summer there were terrible riots, and young people were breaking shop windows and stealing televisions and burning things, and when I watched it on the television, immediately I said to myself  “I know what’s happening here.

These young people, they don’t want televisions, they don’t want fighting and violence, what they want is Allah, they are looking for Allah, but they don’t know where to find Him, because only in the remembrance of Allah will our hearts find rest.

Finding Peace

So how do I find that elusive peace?

As Muslims, the answer is very simple. First of all in prayer...

The Journey of the Heart – 2

Contentment with Allah’s Decree (Exclusive Video)

We’re going to talk today about contentment with Allah’s decree; in Arabic we call this al-rida, being content with what God Almighty has given us, being content, being happy with our lot.

In English there is a saying “Keeping up with the Joneses.”...

This idea of keeping up with the Joneses can eat away at us. We have to be the same, if not better, than all the people around us; and this attitude to life encourages us just to be envious of other people. You know with this attitude of those people have a better car than we have, why? I want a better car. Those people wear nicer clothes than I do, I want better clothes…

This world of things, of material things, encourages us to judge one another compared to other people and to rate ourselves according to our neighbor. Well, according to that calculation, if I haven’t got very much, and the people walking past me have got a lot, it’s going to make me very envious, unless we are content, unless we see things in a different way, unless we see all things as gifts, unless we see that everything in this life comes as a gift from Allah Almighty...

The Purpose of Life in Ten Minutes

We’re going to attempt the impossible in ten minutes; we’re going to talk about the purpose of life and how to fulfill it as well.

You must have thought yourself sometimes, you know, you go out to work in the morning, you work hard all the day to put food on the table for the kids, you get home at night, you’re so tired, you sit and watch the television and you go to bed, then you get up again the next day and do the same.

And sometimes you know, we get so caught up in the business of life, we say to ourselves, “Surely there is more to life than this...”

Surely there is more than just going out every day to work, coming home watching the television and that’s it. There must be more; if there is not more to it life is almost a joke really, what’s the purpose of it at all?

Well, there is a purpose. Islam teaches very clearly that there is a purpose, the purpose is very simple...

As he wants to fill us with the Love of God, so go do likewise, as the Love of a mother wanted to save her son and was willing to give her son away to he could live and not die, so was Moses in the basket on the nile and the Love of the One who found him and wanted to be a mother to him, this reminds me of the Love of the true mother in the case that Solomon judged and he was given disernment by God to judge right and the true mother received back her son.   Ameen

How to Increase in Piety?

Brother Idris answers this question in this brief video:

Fear of the Lord simply means “not living this world as though there were no tomorrow”, not living this world as though we just seize today and do whatever we can as though there is no future, or though there is no hereafter…

Fear of the Lord means living our lives with an eye to what God Almighty wants. It’s as simple as that. We don’t do bad things because we don’t want to displease Almighty God.

How to Introduce the Quran to Non-Muslims

How do we speak to non-Muslims about the Quran?

How can we introduce the Quran to non-Muslims?

I’ve been Muslim now for 14 years or so, Alhamdulillah, and the more I know of the Quran, first of all the more ignorant I realize I am about the Quran; but two, the more beautiful I see the Quran to be.

Even recently, I was in London not long ago, and I heard a talk from a Muslim scholar, and he was talking about the Quran, in answering to a question, and he gave a very beautiful idea which I will share with you...
