    Are you too busy to worship God- Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

    Are you too busy to worship God- Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

    We may feel that work, studies, family, parents, and all the things we need to do, are unduly stealing our time and we are too busy to worship God. In this week's Friday Reminder, Shaykh Faraz beautifully shows us how this is simply not true and that Islam encompasses rewards, and honors all of these endeavors. It is simply about what resides in the heart - our intentions.



    There is profound power in our intentions to transform everything we do into a means of traveling closer to God. Shaykh Faraz counsels us that there are three core intentions of the Muslim. One of them is to fulfill a communal obligation. Your work, whatever it is, is helping people and helping society. Whether you sweep the roads, take the calls, see the patients, teach the students or stack the shelves.



    You are directly or indirectly fulfilling a human need. So consider that and intend what you do for God. When you leave your home to travel to work... don’t! Leave your home to travel to God. Watch the reminder to find out what the other two intentions are, so you too can transform the mere mundane into the super sacred and feel a deep peace and joy that you are always traveling to God in all that you do.

    Gratitude is the Best Attitude- Shaykh Yusuf Weltch

    Gratitude is the Best Attitude- Shaykh Yusuf Weltch

    We are often blind to the blessings that God rains down upon us in our daily lives. And so we wrongly attribute our talents and blessings to our own efforts and blame our hardships on the failures and shortcomings of others. This leads the human being into a state of complaint (shakwa). And for the one who complains much, God will give them much more to complain about.



    As for the one who recognizes who they really are, they see everything as a freely given gift by God and so enter into a state of complete gratitude (shukr). And for the one that is grateful, God will them much more to be grateful for. “If you show gratitude, I will increase you” (Quran 14:7).



    In this week’s Friday Reminder, Shaykh Yusuf Weltch discusses the importance of being in a permanent and active state of gratitude and how we can all learn to arrive at such a state through deep and honest reflection upon our blessings. The prize? A heart at peace through closeness to God.

    The blessings of sending Salawat upon our Beloved – Imam Yama Niazi

    If sending just one prayer of peace and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad [peace be upon him] grants us ten in return from Allah himself, what is our excuse for not filling our time with sending abundantly more?



    In this week’s Friday reflection, Imam Yama Niazi talks us through the many blessings and benefits of sending Salutations upon the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace).

    “The Power of Intention – Turning the Mundane into Sacred”- Imam Yama Niazi

    “The Power of Intention – Turning the Mundane into Sacred”- Imam Yama Niazi

    It is Allah alone who we worship and it is Allah alone who we ask for help. The one constant throughout our lives is The One who is constantly in existence. The Everlasting, Allah. Worldly Obligations throughout our lives often lead us to feel we don't have the time or energy to sit and praise God as we would wish to. And often that is the case. But wait, do you want to know a secret?



    All these mundane acts we carry out without a second thought can be turned into sacred acts! Profitable with God both here and hereafter. Intentions. Remember God. Before every action and in all our states, remember you are doing this all for God. That is the secret of the ‘Bismillah’. Seek His pleasure, His acceptance, and His reward. Make Him your forethought, your midthought, and your afterthought. Do it all for His sake. And you will reap endless rewards.



    In this Friday reflection, Imam Yama Niazi gives practical advice on remembering our Lord in all that we do.

    The Prophet Muhammad’s (Allah bless him and give him peace) Living Tradition- Shaykh Yahya Rhodus

    The Prophet Muhammad’s (Allah bless him and give him peace) Living Tradition- Shaykh Yahya Rhodus

    In this podcast, Shaykh Yahya Rhodus begins by explaining that the prophetic mission is a living tradition and a lived reality. He goes on to give several examples of what is meant by a living tradition, a tradition that is about actions of the limbs and the heart.



    Shaykh Yahya mentions that all believers should not forget the blessings of La ilaha ila Allah (There is no god but Allah) and the prophetic call. It is no other than a call to Allah Most High explains Shaykh Yahya. There are people who preserve this religious living tradition counsels Shaykh Yahya.



    Shaykh Yahya ends with a reminder to embody and reflect on the prophetic guidance and teaching of the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace).
