Allah is the One who needs no one. He does not need our obedience, nor does He need our worship. Our deeds of worship are in reality, completely worthless to Him. Yet, Man performs worship, as if he is doing a favour for His Lord!
Because Man does not see that his good deeds are for his own benefit, he is reluctant to do good, and because he doesn’t see that his evil acts bring difficulties upon himself, he persists at it!
Shaykh Mehmet cites the example of two people who had heart attacks recently, because they refused to quit smoking. Only when faced with death, did they realize that Allah’s Command to leave such evil practises (ie to quit smoking) was for their own good, and the good of those around them. Similarly, evil does not hurt Allah, it hurts the wrong-doer and those around him, hence the need to stop evil, either by force, or by advising, or by hating such defiance, in our hearts.

In this Suhbah, Shaykh Mehmet reminds us to treasure the acts of Worship that are limited to just a few days each year, such as the recital of the Eid takbir, performing Eid prayers and the Sacrifice.

Shaykh Mehmet also rebuts animal-rights activists who attempt to pin a label of barbarism on the act of Kurban, and he concludes by sharing a very vital piece of advice, to all those who perform the actual act of slaughtering. Continue reading

This year, Zulhijjah begins on the 16th or 17th October 2012. The Prophet (saw) said: “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days. One fast during these ten days is equal to the fasting of one complete year, and the worship of one night during this period is equal to the worship in the “Lailatul-Qadr”. (Tirmizi). Let us learn more about these blessed 10 days! Continue reading
