Importance of strengthening Family Support

  • We need to cultivate having good thoughts of others, and we need to have faith that our family members have potentials to be good and do good. These are important values that will help every family tide through their own challenges.
  • Every family will face challenges, brought about by our own weaknesses. But what is important is that every member of the family must put in the effort to communicate with each other. Our communication with one another may have been affected by our busy schedules.
  • Parents need to be more open in showing and telling their children that they love and care for them. This will help them to feel more affectionate toward you and see you not just as disciplinarians, but more importantly, people who truly love them.

Ramadan: The Month of Instilling Family Values

  • Ramadan is also known as the month of good deeds. It is the month in which Allah s.w.t. grants multiple rewards for the acts of kindness that we undertake.
  • While we rush to earn the rewards from terawih prayers and reciting the Quran, do not forget about our spouse and children. Strengthen our relationship with Allah, together with our family.
  • Hopefully by doing so Allah will strengthen our family ties and grant calmness in our household.

Ramadan: The Month of Instilling Family Values

  • Last week we were reminded of the importance to take advantage of Syaaban to prepare ourselves to usher in Ramadan. This week, the sermon will discuss the need to prepare our families for Ramadan. Rasulullah s.a.w. He would consistently provide his family members with continuous guidance. As much as we wish for ourselves and family happiness in this world, we would also wish for the same in the Hereafter before Allah s.w.t. We hope and pray that our entire family will be the dwellers of Allah’s paradise.
  • The family institution is the bedrock of every society and country. When the family succeeds, the community will also attain success. However, if the family is left without any guidance, then its members will be lost. Hence, as we are preparing to step into the month of Ramadan, I would like to call upon all of us to protect the family institution. This is especially so as our children are facing various challenges and trials.

Practicing Self-Reflection in the month of Syaaban

  • Syaaban is the month for us to increase our preparations spiritually, physically and emotionally to greet the month of Ramadan. Hence it is even more important that we prepare ourselves in order to be worthy of these blessings.
  • In preparing our souls for Ramadan, ensure that we keep ourselves busy with good deeds and do not let the time pass by quietly without performing any good deeds. This is because when our souls are left empty without any deeds, syaitan will whisper devious schemes into us.
  • Hence, for us to face Ramadan, we must train ourselves to be sincere. Whether it is in front of others or in private, we must continue to be diligent in our acts of worship and more diligent in protecting ourselves from syaitan’s devious acts and our desires. Remind ourselves of Allah constantly, and that every act of worship is for Allah.

Knowledge That Enlive The Faith

  • Faith is an entity that can fade and disappear if we do not make efforts for it to be renewed and strengthened. Therefore we should constantly monitor our state of iman in our hearts. Ponder, what will increase our faith, what will fertilize our faith, what will strengthen our faith. Why do we need to ponder this, my dear brothers? This is because there are among the men who seek to bring discords and destructions in the name of faith.
  • Through our knowledge, we will be able to strengthen our akidah and the integrity of our iman in our hearts. Knowledge provides us the ability to be discerning and identify truth from falsehood, the clear from the blurry. This is the role of religious knowledge.

Taking Isra dan Mi’raj As A Lesson for Believers In Facing Life Challenges

  • Come the month of Rejab, we are constantly reminded of the Isra’ and Mi’raj incident. It is an extraordinary experience that was exclusive to our Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.
  • Although this incident is a blessing for Rasulullah s.a.w., we must not forget that he s.a.w. had to undergo trials and tribulations before experiencing Isra’ and Mi’raj. The Prophet s.a.w. was going through a very great trial from Allah s.w.t.
  • The difficulties and challenges faced by the Prophet s.a.w. before he received the blessed invitation to meet Allah are actually sunnatullah of life

Iman And Understanding Of The Day Of Judgement

  • Last week, the khatib called upon us as believers to always ponder upon our actions, in a bid to boost our iman and thus achieve success in this world and the hereafter. As a continuation, today’s khutbah would reflect upon one of the six articles of faith. It is tied to an impending event that will certainly occur. That is the Day of Qiyamah or the Day of Judgement.
  • While we seek to understand and learn about the Day of Qiyamah, and everything related to it, it is also important for us to identify the wisdom (hikmah) and lessons behind the Day of Judgement. This is because, without deep understanding and appreciation of why we believe in the Day of Qiyamah, it will cause confusion and failure to fully gain the benefits and intended effects of having been told of this day.

Iman And The Call To Contemplate

  • This week khutbah would like to highlight the important for us to strive to achieve a thorough understanding of Iman. Without a proper understanding on what ‘iman’ is, it will result in a plethora of different views and understandings. While some of these views might be perceived as part of the religion, fact of the matter is they are not even close to that.
  • Allah’s explanations on His creations in the Quran. In addition to it being a testimony to Allah’s powers, to call upon us to contemplate and appreciate Allah’s creations. This is because Iman requires for the one who seeks to possess it to engage in a thinking process, and then to appreciate. It is not achieved by blindly following without giving much thought and without seeking for proper guidance.
  • Therefore, let us take this opportunity, as we are nearing the month of Ramadan, to work on our recitations of the Quran, and to attended religious classes. And may we all be blessed with a resilient faith and Iman – one that would motivate us to think and contemplate, and that would heighten our appreciation of our religion

Understanding Wisdom In Practicing The Religion

  • Throughout the life of our beloved messenger, Prophet Muhammad s.a.w., one trait that was never separated from him was his wisdom.
  • When Rasulullah practiced Islam, taught others and called upon others to embrace the religion by giving them advice, he did all that with wisdom.
  • Wisdom, along with Allah’s will, is the key to touching the hearts of our family and friends, and to motivate them to be more inclined toward the path of goodness and to boost their love for the religion of Allah and the teachings of His messenger.

The Akhlak of a Learned Person: Humility/Tawadhu’

The more knowledge we gain, the more it should make us grateful to Allah s.w.t. for the gift of knowledge that He has bestowed upon us. The more knowledge we gain, the more we should reflect humility, or tawadhu’, towards others.

This lack of adab (good manners) in seeking knowledge can lead to fanaticism (ta’assub), segregation and cliques within the Ummah, eventually leading to further disunity.

As a true seeker of knowledge with a deep sense of love for knowledge, we need to realise that seeking knowledge is a long and arduous journey. In seeking knowledge we need to constantly be in a state of worship to Allah. Only then will we be guided to cleanse our hearts from mazmumah, or ugly traits such as pride, arrogance and takabbur.

The Importance Of Being Guided By A Teacher In Seeking Religious Knowledge. [20 February 2015]

Acquiring true, authentic Islamic knowledge requires a qualified teacher. The necessity of an educator and the educator’s role to guide a person on the path to attain Allah’s pleasure is pivotal. Hence, although Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. was given the title “the educator of all educators”, Allah still sent the angel Jibril a.s. to teach the Prophet about Islam.

Empowering Oneself With Knowledge. [06 February 2015]

The noble message that Rasulullah s.a.w. had brought to us was one that emphasised on the importance of knowledge in our lives. The Islamic civilisation that we inherited today was also one that placed great importance in mastering knowledge and its application for the benefit of humankind in its entirety.
