So this is going to be a quick and dirty khutbah critique, not cheap and easy, but quick and dirty.
You will be getting my unedited notes on the khutbah and a brief commentary, also, I apologize for the delay in getting this up, it's been a hectic week!
Gives first part of khutbah in Arabic.
May Allah make it easy for us to co.e to his house and may he shower us with his mercy and blessings day and night. Allah has covered us with his bounties.
Allah has created us for a reason. He gave us the ears the heart the eyes and the brain. He made this universe and has given us this u diverse. This dunya has been created for us but we have been created for akhirah.
Allah does not means to sustain himself, he is the creator of the means.
We think if something is harmful for us, if Allah wants to out benefit, Allah will make it benefit you.
The prophet said, young man i will give you advice, protect the order of Allah and Allah will protect you. If you need protection, ask alkah, if you need something, ask Allah.
Mankind, jinnkind, angels, if they get together and plan for years to benefit you, they cannot benefit you except from what Allah has already decided to benefit you. They cannot harm you unless Allah has decided that for you.
Allah has decided your destiny 50,000 years before you were born.
O my slave i have created you for my worship, so don't okay. I have decided your risk for you, so don't get tired.
You will only get what i have written for you.
Allah will make the dunya against you. Like animals running in the jungle, except for what Allah has decided for you.
Nothing you have can give you happiness unless Allah wants it for you.
Even if all the conditions are against you, Allah can give you happiness. Ibrahim said that the best time he had in dunya was in the fire.
The person with the best conditions could be getti g punished. Allah did not put satisfaction in things.
Hayat tayyiba. Good life, does not come from wealth, high degree, etc.
Satisfaction, happiness, has nothing to do with the means, Allah put it in iman,ihsan, the heart cannot have satisfaction except with the rembrance of Allah.
This dunya is deception, there is no reality in it. The o ly thing that is real is death.
When death cones that is the reality , that's what will wake us up.
The reality will come, the angels will make us sit up in your grave and ask you, who is your sustainer. If you love money. You will say your lord is money. If you worship money in dunya, it will be hard for him to say that Allah is his sustainer.
If we don't follow the prophet's sunnah, we can't answer who he is in the grave.
It will be difficult to say that your religion is Islam.
We have to come back before it's too late, bring us back to this din in a soft way, willingly. Allah gives us a chance in this dunya to accept this.
The grave is the container of deeds. All the bounty that alkah has given us and we lose it for no value, time and health, they are losing them for no value.
Take advantage of your young age before old age, take advantage of your life before death, your health before sickness, your wealth before you are poor, your time.
We have to use our intelligence and every blessing for akhira in this dunya.
That needs effort to bring din, iman, and sunnah in our life, it won't come over night. Spend in the way of Allah.
There will be a gathering tomorrow in Jane masjid after 8. Discussing what we need to do in thus liffe to prepare for our akhira.
Yeah, I don't really care to say much more about this khutbah, it was decent if you look at it ignorantly, but kinda lame otherwise. Tada.
Insha'Allah there will be something up for tomorrow khutbah.
Afterthought: I forgot to mention that this khatib did not mention that was our Prophet (S)'s birthday just a day previous to this Jummah Khutbah. What that tells me is that he is against celebrating the Mawlid. Which is an egregious affront to the sensibilities of Traditional Muslims. Please read this article for more information. Bah... I truly dislike arrogantly ignorant people.
