An Introduction To The Companions

Allah chose Muhammad, peace be upon him, above all creation to convey His message, and He chose the people who were around His messenger to defend and spread the Deen, The companions were described by the Prophet as being the best of generations, thus it is a must for every Muslim to follow and emulate their ways. Abu Hasnayn explains the importance and virtues of the companions of the Prophet. These series of Khutbas (sermons) provide the listener with a great introduction to the lives of the four rightly guided khulafa: Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali, may Allah be pleased with them all. The lectures give an insight into the lives of these great men who led the Muslims of their time to victory by Allah's permission. What lessons can we derive from their lives? Listen and be amazed by their simplicity, sincerity and service to Islam.
CD 1: Companions the ultimate generation

Thugz or Mugz : The Reality of the Gangsta Lifestyle

By Murtaza Khan. We need to face facts: Muslim involvement in drugs and the gangster lifestyle is increasing at an alarming rate in the West. Muslims are now heavily involved with the planting, harvesting, refinement, smuggling, and distribution of drugs within our communities. Rather than taking the Prophets and Companions as heroes, our youth look up to the drug traffikers and rap artists. In this lecture the speaker addresses some of the common problems that are prevalent in our communities such as drugs, guns and Rap music. One must always remember that being a practicing Muslim is not restricted to praying, fasting and going for Hajj. Rather, Islam is a complete way of life and has injunctions with regards to business, trade, marriage, divorce, inheritance and so on. Hence, one cannot be termed a practicing Muslim if one’s earnings are through unlawful means

The Importance of Knowledge

Allah has exalted man through knowledge and through it he becomes closer to Allah. The speaker discusses the necessity of knowledge and its types. He talks about the status and superiority of those who have knowledge and the importance of having the correct intention for seeking it.


Backbiting and a Good Word

In this set of two Friday Sermons, Abu Hasnayn explains the severity of gheeba - backbiting. He talks of its types and how the Prophet, peace be upon him, explained it to be. The second khutba is in contrast to the first. The speaker explains what type of speech a believer should indulge in. As the Prophet said 'Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak good or remain silent.'


Drinking & Gambling

Just like good deeds go hand in hand, evil deeds are mentioned together in the Qur'an; to highlight that if you enter into one of them, you'll be encouraged to do the other action. And upon this dunya we clearly find that wherever you find khamr (alcohol) you'll find maysir (gambling). What's the ruling regarding the one who doesn't drink alcohol but sells it? In this Friday sermon, Abu Hasnayn presents the answer to this question and provides evidence to clarify misconceptions held by many Muslims in our time.



'Those who eat Riba will not stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except like the standing of a person beaten by Shaitan leading him to insanity. That is because they say: "Trading is only like Riba", whereas Allah has permitted trading and forbidden Riba.' (al-Baqarah:275) Abu Hasnayn highlights the grave sin of Riba and explains the consequences for those involved in Riba transactions.


Natural Disasters

'See they not that they are put in trial once or twice every year? Yet, they turn not in repentance, nor do they learn a lesson (from it)' (Surah at-Tawbah: 126) Humanity is living in a time where the occurrences of 'natural disasters' are on the increase. Many see these as mishaps or miscalculations and remain heedless. As for the ones who Allah has showered His Mercy upon, then they clearly witness the prophecy of the final Prophet (peace be upon Him) come to life. How should a believer respond to these obvious signs of the coming of the Final Hour?


The Spiritual Solution to Materialism

By Murtaza Khan. Many people are drowning in materialism and two extremes have become prevalent amongst the Muslims. Presenting to a group of sixth form students, the speaker discusses the choice of total assimilation into society where Islam plays a minimal role in the life of Muslims and the total abandonment of participating in society. What is the middle path? What was the opinion of the companions of the Messenger, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him? And what is the spiritual solution?


Temptations of the Dunya

By Murtaza Khan. In this awakening lecture the speaker brings home to the listeners the state of affairs of the Ummah of Muhammad, peace and blessing of Allah be upon him; Focussing on the great portion of Muslims who have taken to indulging in their desires and temptations, he hi-lights many of the common problems today. Also Allah, the Most High, has created man as a supreme and noble creature and has raised from amongst mankind, the Muslims as the best of people, yet due to imitating the disbelievers and by giving into desires have the Muslims become low. Concluding on a positive note, the speaker reminds the believing servants to try and change this state of affair with their hands, tongues or at least their hearts.


Searching For A Spouse

At a time when marital harmony amongst the practising population is worsening and divorce is on the increase, Abu Hasnayn looks at some of the misconceptions and illnesses that exist within this community when choosing a spouse. He reflects upon certain problems that arise within marriages and offers pragmatic solutions. He also discusses the importance of marriage and the qualities to be sought in a spouse.

By Murtaza Khan. Islam has been completed and the doors of seeking nearness to Allah have been established. The Messenger of Allah warned his companions against this on many occasions yet it is easy to fall into the path of innovation and desire. The speaker explains what innovation is, its Shari'ah meaning, its types and its position in Islam. He discuses occasions where people innovated in the past and common practises today. He also explains the statement of Umar, may Allah be pleased with him: ‘this is a good innovation' and talks about the state of those who innovate, on the Day of Judgement
