Friday Khutbah (Sermons) : Marriage is a Protection and a Joy

Friday Khutbah (Sermons) : Marriage is a Protection and a Joy – by Imam Al-Haramain, Sheikh Abdul Rahman Ibn Abdul Aziz-as-Sudais Makkah al-Mukarramah; Translated by Nasiruddin al-Khattab The Transcript: Part – 1 Praise be to Allah; we praise Him and we seek His help and guidance; we repent to Him and seek His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allah from the evils of our own selves and from our evil deeds. Whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has been guided and whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger has gone astray. I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship but Allah alone, with no partner or associate. He created us from one soul, Read more ...

Love during the Time of Quraysh

Love is a powerful theme that features throughout history, with the power to launch a thousand ships or destroy a country. Zainab bint Muhammad (radhiAllahu anha) is an example of the strength of love and a Muslim woman's patience and courage. Although her story does not feature as prominently in Islamic history as some other Sahabiyaat such as her mother, Khadijah, or her step-mother Aishah, she experienced one of the most difficult struggles faced by Muslim women: the battle between true love and spiritual conviction. Zainab bint RasulAllah (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) was the eldest daughter of RasulAllah (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) and his Read more ...

Islamic Guidance: Husband and Wife Relationship

Islam is not merely a religion that asks to you worship and get closer to God. The religion guides humankind in each and every aspect of life. It is a way of life that is not limited to your relation with God, but also tells you how you should go about with other people, be it your parents, or your siblings, or friends and neighbors or your children or even your spouse. Before the advent of Islam, ignorance and wilderness were spread everywhere. Women had no rights neither as sisters, nor as daughters and not even as wives. The religion of Islam came and elevated the position of women. Where it laid down a few rules and principles, it also laid down Read more ...

Ruling on a Muslim Marrying a Non-Muslim

Praise be to Allah. As far as the interfaith marriages are concerned, Islam does not encourage them. Islam does not permit a Muslim, male or female, to marry a non-Muslim, especially in countries like the U.S., China and India where Muslims are minorities. In a fully developed Islamic state, where Islam is dominant, Muslim men are sometimes allowed to marry non-Muslim women who are chaste and follow the original teachings of Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them). The general rule of Islam is that Muslims should marry Muslims. A Muslim male or female should not marry a non-Muslim male or female. The only exception is given to Muslim male who are allowed Read more ...
