  1. Please tell us how Omar insulted Prophet when prophet was ill on his bed am sure you have read the hadith (pen and paper and I hope every Muslim google it). Then you know what kind of people Omar was. Shame on most of you Muslim scholars for defending Omar.

  2. بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم
    يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَرْفَعُوا أَصْوَاتَكُمْ فَوْقَ صَوْتِ النَّبِيِّ وَلَا تَجْهَرُوا لَهُ بِالْقَوْلِ كَجَهْرِ بَعْضِكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ أَنْ تَحْبَطَ أَعْمَالُكُمْ وَأَنْتُمْ لَا تَشْعُرُونَ ﴿۲﴾
    Believers, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet, do not be too loud in speaking to him [as you may have been to one another], lest your deeds will be made devoid of all virtue without your realizing it. (۲)
    بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم
    يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ لِمَ تُحَرِّمُ مَا أَحَلَّ اللَّهُ لَكَ تَبْتَغِي مَرْضَاتَ أَزْوَاجِكَ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ ﴿۱﴾
    Prophet, in seeking the pleasure of your wives, why do you make unlawful that which God has made lawful. God is All-forgiving and All-merciful. (۱)

  3. Which Part Of The World Did The LORD YAHWEH Promise To Ya'aqov'el, It Is Been Written And Said, To Israel When He Did Wake Up? Surprisingly, Adonai Was Standing On Top Of It And He Said, I Am Adonai, The Yah Of Your Father Avraham And The Yah Of Yitzchaq. The Land On Which You Lie, I Will Give It To You And To Your Seed. Your Seed Will Be As The Dust Of The Land, And You Will Burst Forth To The West And To The East And To The North And To The South.

    And In You All The Families, Of The Earth Will Be Blessed—And In Your Seed. Behold, I Am With You, And I Will Watch Over You Wherever You Go, And I Will Bring You Back To This Land, For I Will Not Forsake You Until I Have Done What I Promised You.

    Ya'aqov'el Woke Up From His Sleep And Said, Undoubtedly [Without Doubt] Adonai Is In This Place—And I Was Unaware.

    So He Was Afraid And Said, How Fearsome This Place Is!

    This Is None Other Than The House Of YAHWEH—This Must Be The Gate, Of Heaven!

  4. I have to tell this to the whole world

    Today Tuesday August 10 is memorable day
    I have to write it as I have no doubt whatsoever in my mind that my brothers have always despised me as long as I remember mainly due to the fact that I have no mental compatibility with them. They are born smarter and became successful and I was an underdog for as long as I can remember. Lately I tried my best to clear my heart and made a sincere approach but as always their shrewdness, selfishness, cynicism, and egocentrism overcame which made them decide to continue to hate me. This time I have given up that we do have irreconcilable differences, they are what they are and I am what I am. They can’t be changed and nothing can change their hearts for me. It is hard but a reality. End of writing.

  5. The Salat or prayers on the prophet should be only; ( Allah huma saley ala Muhamad wa Alie Muhamad). so there is no (Us'habihee) wa salam within the prayer.

    Really strange people; You praise Omar who described the prophet as ( Hallucinating) in something called ( Raziat al Khamees). A prophet who speaks only what the revelation from Allah tells him !!Also, you praise the companions who lots of them are hypocrites as the Quran tells us.

  6. I love all the sahaba's may ALLAH be pleased with them. Ameen but Omar Ibn Khattab was on the next level and my favourite sahaba whenever I hear his life story i get the shivers.
    May ALLAH be pleased with him and give him the highest rank in Jannah.

  7. I am enjoying and being inspired from tow Omars, one who was Ameerul Mominin and the other who is Ameer of scholars Dr Omar sulieman From Afghanistan.
    Appreciate this so much.
    May Allah give you a house beside Omar RA and prophet and me and the person who is benefiting this Amazing work.

  8. now u have shiites "muslims" today who curse Umar (ra) and the rest of the companions as they curse Aisha (ra) the mother of the believers! and somehow they call themselves muslims!

  9. Masha Allah. Shaykh delivers so beautifully and stays aware of what burdens the minds of the people, whilst conveying the perfect message of Sayyidina RasulAllah ﷺ. May Allah preserve him and enable us to follow the Prophetic Way.

  10. The Promises of Allah

    7. If you are grateful, He will surely increase you:

    Allah says:
    And remember when your Lord proclaimed: "If you give thanks, I will give you more. But if you are thankless, verily! My Punishment is indeed severe."
    Qur’an 14 [Ibrahim]:7

    8. Call upon Him, He will respond to you:

    Allah says:
    And your Lord said: “Invoke Me and I will respond to your invocation…”
    Qur’an 40[Gafir]:60

    9. Remember Him, He will remember you:

    Allah (SWT) says:
    “Therefore remember Me and I will remember you. And be grateful to Me and never be ungrateful to Me.”
    Qur’an 2[Baqarah]:152

    10. He will not punish you while you seek forgiveness:

    Allah (SWT) says:
    And Allah would not punish them while you (Muhammad ﷺ) are amongst them, nor will He punish them while they seek (Allah’s) Forgiveness.
    Qur’an 8[Anfal]:33

    11. If you believe in Allah and do good deeds, paradise awaits you:

    Allah (SWT) says:
    But those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, We shall admit them to the Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell therein forever. Allah’s Promise is the Truth, and whose words can be truer than those of Allah?
    Qur’an 4[Nisa’]:122

    12. Charity does not decrease our wealth not in this life or the next.

    13. Allah (the Exalted) said: {Allah has promised those who have believed among you and done righteous deeds that He will surely grant them succession [to authority] upon the earth just as He granted it to those before them and that He will surely establish for them their religion which He has preferred for them and that He will surely substitute for them, after their fear, security, [for] they worship Me, not associating anything with Me. But whoever disbelieves after that – then those are the defiantly disobedient} [An- Nūr: 55]…
