Shaykh Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf Mangera is a British Muslim scholar educated in both the Islamic and Western traditions.

He memorised the Qur’an by heart and graduated from the Darul Uloom seminary Bury, UK, and later earned a specialized licence to issue fatwa (legal responses) at Mazahir ‘Ulum Saharanpur, India.

He earned his BA from the University of Johannesburg and completed his MA and PhD in Islamic Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies in London.

He holds an honorary fellowship at the Cambridge Muslim College and at The Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought, Amman, Jordan.

Shaykh Abdur-Rahman has the unique experience of serving as an imam in Muslim communities on both sides of the Atlantic, eight years in Southern California and over five in the great city of London—and his continued work as an international speaker and lecturer enables him to address and offer pertinent advice on current challenges that face Muslims in the West.

He is the founder of Whitethread Institute, a post-graduate institute for Islamic scholars. He is an avid traveller and continues to teach hadith and work on scholarly publications through White Thread Press ( http://www.whitethredpress.com/ - www.whitethreadpress.com ).

Many of his lectures are available on http://www.zamzamacademy.com/ - www.zamzamacademy.com and his courses through Rayyan Institute ( http://www.rayyaninstitute.com - www.rayyaninstitute.com ).

This is an excellent first talk of his I was watching yesterday on the topic of predestination in Islam:

Don't be Depressed: You do not Know Your Future

Fate, predestination, and divine decree: This lectures deals very clearly with the difficult topic of qadr and attempts at explaining the wisdom behind decrees.

The speaker eloquently provides great inspiration for the depressed and despondent.

Being Thankful Could Possibly Change Your Future

his world is full of unpredictability and diversity, which makes it an interesting place to live. When a person is under the impression that everything should be perfect, or a certain way, it can lead to depression.

In this talk, Mufti Abdur-Rahman helps us understand how imperative it is to be thankful to Allah in every situation and to realize the realities of this world.

The importance of having a reverent heart, remembering tongue, and persevering body can get you into the highest realms of Jannah (heaven) when you possibly have nothing else to lose.

Closeness to Allah and Attaining the Level of Ihsan

Shaykh Abdur-Rahman advises how the seeker should not rely purely on the prescribed dhikr regimen, the basic internal nutrition, for spiritual growth.

Rather the path to Ihsaan lies in the fulfillment of both its internal and external factors.

The external supplements needed for spiritual growth will come as a result of the seekers own exertion: being regular on the prayers; aiming to maintain purity both internally (keeping away from evil thoughts) and externally (trying to remain in a state of wudu) and other mentioned acts.

Balancing the Intellect and Wealth

Shaykh Abdur-Rahman explains how our iman (testifying to the existence of the One Supreme Being Allah) is something which is developed and cultivated by the intellectual mind.

Shaykh mentions two factors which strengthens this conviction: Frequent reflection and contemplation on ones surroundings and secondly, by one taking on the study of the Islamic Sciences.

He goes on to mention that if the mind is not worked to acquire such traits, one will become engrossed merely in worldly pursuits.

Shaykh Abdur-Rahman finally, recalls some of his experiences during his recent pilgrimage and narrates an incident revealing the reality of shukr (gratitude) and some of the deceptive ploys of shaitan in which he tries to spoil the worship of the seeker.

Faith is Believing in the Unseen

Belief in the unseen is what sets a believer apart from everyone else in this world.

For us to be true Believers, we must have strong faith. In this lecture, Mufti Abdur-Rahman gives us four points that tell us how to build our faith.

When we get caught up in out-doing one another or give up so easily when we encounter difficulties as a means of being tested, how do we bring our hearts back to Allah?

Peppered with intriguing stories and examples of true faith and belief, listen on as Mufti Abdur-Rahman tells us what it means to believe in the unseen and the power behind it.

Sacrificing Hajj for Your Patient: An Amazing Story

How do we remain fully submitted to Allah to what He has planned, despite things not materialising our way?

In this talk, Mufti Abdur-Rahman discusses the importance of Tawakkul (reliance) in Allah and in His grand plan.

He perfectly illustrates this with a story of an individual whose one act of kindness at a time of conflicting emotions set in motion a chain of events which only bought goodness after goodness.

A Heart Not Distracted by the World

Shaykh Abdur-Rahman explains that one of the main obstacles for the aspirant in reaching Allah is when they have too many links to the world.

The Shaykh explains that the problem with this is that the aspirant begins to believe that there benefit and harm comes from the dunya (its people/objects) and not from Allah.

This belief goes against the true conviction of faith that everything lies in the hands of Allah. The aspirant must understand that the Ultimate Benefactor and the only one who can cause distress is Allah, and thinking another to be the cause is a sign of a faulty heart and a weakness in ones iman.

A sound heart is one which has its hope fully attached to its Creator and not on the creation. As Allah mentions in the Qur’an: “On that day none (wealth/children) will avail you except the one who comes to Allah with a sound heart.”
