Tasawwur Islam - 13 Jan 2010

What an eventful week! I’ve discovered that Sheikh Abu Ammar Yasir Qadhi is with Al Maghrib Institute. He has a series fo 29 talks dedicated on the Fundamentals of faith, providing clarity on Knowledge and Tawheed with references made to the Quran and Hadith.

View Video 1 here and I've included links till Video 12... you know where to get the rest , right? (Subhan Allah, words of wisdom!):

Video 10. Tawakul & Sabr 

What I took away from this week’s session by Sheikh Abdul Halim and Sheikh Abu Ammar Yasir Qadhi was that Allah SWT loves a person who continues to seek knowledge as reflected in Surah Taha:114, “… My Lord! Increase me in knowledge.

Especially if one acknowledges that the essence of all knowledge is the knowledge of Allah SWT (the life of the heart) because Tawheed is the only path that will provide eternal happiness as reflected in Surah Taha: 124, “But he who turned away from remembrance of Me, he will live a narrow life, and be blind to the assembly on the Day of Resurrection.

As rightly mentioned by Sheikh Abdul Halim, we need to continually progress our ibadah (personal jihad) to a higher level of ihsan (upgrade ourselves from Muslims to Mukmin to ultimately Muhsin as stated in Surah Aali Imran:191). Truly Surah At-Tin:4 states, “Surely We created man of the best stature.” Yes, we can? Insya Allah :)
