Rank #1: islamic sacred arts

Podcast cover
Read more
Islamic art can speak more profoundly and clearly than even the written word. Is it wiser then for Muslims to show, not to tell? The masterpieces of Islamic civilization communicate the beauty and truth of Qur'anic revelation with a profound directness simply unmatched by articles or books about Islam. Sadly modern Muslims have neglected Islamic art. While this is a significant loss for all of humanity, it is particularly tragic for Muslims. As the hadith says, "Allaah is beautiful, and He loves beauty," - so indifference to beauty is tantamount to indifference to the divine.

Rank #2: laylat-ul-qadr

Everything in creation has an appointed time : the earth has its seasons and different human affairs also have its best moments of execution. As the rainy season is suitable for farming, similarly for the attainment of nearness to Allaah, specific times , specific days and specific nights are most suitable, for example, the time of Tahajjud prayers in the deepest part of night, Friday prayers, the month of Ramadaan, the Day of Arafah, the moment before breaking the fast after sundown. So also the Night of Power is marked as the most suitable night of mystery for attaining the cherished prize ... Allaah

Rank #3: inner dimensions of fasting

Podcast cover
Read more
Fasting in the holy month of Ramadaan is one of the foremost of the five pillars of Islaam, as well as being among the greatest of the symbols of Islaam. Fasting has many purposes relating both to the Lordship of Allaah and thanksgiving for His bounties, and to man's individual and collective life, as well as to his self-training and self-discipline. Nothing empowers a community more than the development of the moral character of its members.

Rank #4: christchurch & the clash of civilisations - 3

Podcast cover
Read more
'The shocking context of the white supremacist terror attack in Christchurch cannot be seen in isolation from the ideological strands that get woven into the anti-migrant, anti-Muslim narrative that was primarily triggered by the publication of Samuel Huntington’s book, “Clash of Civilizations”. Huntington falsely proposed the major clashes of the world would occur due to the threat for the West from Islam and China. This phony theory obfuscated the realities of unequal power, the deep divisions between rich and poor, atheistic nihilism , it’s war against religion and morality and it’s social Darwinian lie of the survival of the fittest. Most importantly, 'religious illiteracy’ and 'cultural ignorance' about the ‘other’ lie at the root of all ‘clashes of ignorance’.

Rank #5: modesty in islam

Podcast cover
Read more
'Hayaa’ is a word which describes both shyness and a deeper modesty that is based on ‘iimaan (faith). Hayaa’ therefore influences a Muslim’s conduct before Allaah, before others and even when one is alone. Hayaa’ makes a person more careful, self-aware, and self-controlled and ultimately results in paying Allaah & His creation the respect that is their due. It is no coincidence that the words ‘Hayaa’ (modesty) and ‘hayaat’ (life) come from the same Arabic root. This signifies that modesty is a sign of a truly ‘living’ heart, and that a heart's vibrancy depends on its owner's belief & knowledge of Allaah.

Rank #6: Humility - lecture 2

Podcast cover
Read more
‘Humility’ is the awareness and acknowledgement on the part of a believer that all the good possessed by him, whether it be his life, opportunities, faculties, intellect, abilities, health, beauty and wealth, are all generous gifts granted by Allaah, and are not of his own doing. Allaah, the Most Generous and Kind, is the source of everything and therefore all praise and thanks is due to Him, and Him alone. This realisation leads a Mu’min to having a deep sense of gratitude, proximity to and love for Allaah. In Islaam, Humility is regarded as the foundation of all other moral virtues, and its absence destroys any other virtue.

Rank #7: Contentment - lecture 2

Podcast cover
Read more
'Ridaa' or ‘Contentment’ with the decree of Allaah is one of the great acts of ‘worship of the heart’. Contentment is the door to tranquillity for a Muslim and experiencing ‘paradise’ on earth. Whoever does not ‘enter it’ will not enter the eternal Paradise of the Hereafter. Contentment gives a Muslim the blessing of a heart at peace and it allows for spiritual growth, especially love. Those who are not content are eventually consumed by greed. When individuals succumb to greed, they will never be satisfied no matter how much they acquire, and therefore never happy and at peace.
