Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Friday afternoon 20 Dhul Qida 1428 (November 30, 2007)

After Jummah, someone asked a question about the sorrow in life where one’s loved ones do not accept the Islamic lifestyle and laws. Sheykh Efendi is saying how important it is to hold to your principles, to enforce the requirements of Islam in your home and in other areas of life, even when you feel pressure from family and friends to be lenient.

Jummah Khutba 20 Dhul Qida 1428 (November 30, 2007)

Whatever you plant in this life – good or bad – that is what you will harvest in the afterlife. Every hour of every day will be played back to you for accounting. Don’t be standing at the door of complaining. If you are doing for the sake of ALLAH and you are being taken advantage of, ALLAH swt knows, and He will pay you back in the hereafter.

Friday, 13 Dhul Qida 1428 (November 23, 2007)

Sheykh Efendi is saying Allah swt is asking only one thing of us- to be the servant of Allah swt. As long as you are running to this dunya, there is no way out- you cannot escape. The principles of Islam are to keep the faith strong. Allah swt is just, He does not give you a burden you cannot carry. Allah swt shows you the way out. The bad feelings you are carrying toward other people- anger and jealousy- are weighing you down. They begin to smell like a load of rotten potatoes over time. Get rid of that burden you are carrying, and keep ALLAH swt in your heart for your protection.

ALLAH does not burden us with more than we can carry. What is it He wants from us? Keep the promise made on the Day of Promises – to worship Him. Show awareness and gratitude for the favors He grants every day by performing at least one sejde every day. Become beloved to Him by obeying His orders.
