Hadith of the Week

Narrated Al-Bara, r.a:

The Prophet (ﷺ) ordered us to do seven (things) and forbade us from seven (other things): He ordered us to pay a visit to the sick, to follow funeral possessions, to say: May Allah be merciful to you to a sneezer, - if he says: Praise be to Allah, to accept invitation (invitation to a wedding banquet), to return greetings, to help the oppressed, and to help others to fulfill their oaths (provided it was not sinful). And he forbade us from seven (things): to wear golden rings or golden bangles, to wear silk (cloth), Dibaj, Sundus and Mayathir.

Brother Nur Barakah - May Allah (SWT) accept him as Shaheed.

by Imam Badi Ali
[Greensboro, NC]

He was one of the leaders of Gaza. He was 38 years old, had a Masters in Comparative Fiqh, and was a Qur'an reciter. He was aware of all 10 recitations of the Qur'an. Rahimahuallah. He also wrote a study, "Negligence in Jihadist Action: A Comparative Jurisprudential Study." This tells us that most of our leaders have the faith and the knowledge and they practiced it. May Allah (SWT) accept him and accept all of our martyrs. May Allah (SWT) guard and protect Gaza and Palestine and make them victorious

Tariq Ramadan released after 9 and half months in French Prison

November 20 at 1:33 PM
Dr. Tariq Ramadan Speaks:
by Mauri Saalakhan.

This is the first public statement of Tariq Ramadan since his release. The final paragraph carries a very special and deep resonance for me personally.

As I did in my last FB presentation that announced his release, I again salute those conscious members of the international community who mustered the courage NOT TO REMAIN SILENT; even as we acknowledge the fact that the struggle must continue......

Tariq Ramadan
November 20 at 3:00 AM
Peace be upon you,
After nine and a half months of imprisonment, I was released on Friday, November 16, 2018.

I am innocent of all charges against me and will keep on fighting for my dignity and honor.

The elements of the case, as well as the manner in which the investigation was conducted confirm that I was kept in prison for political reasons.

I would like to thank my family for their unwavering support and my lawyer, Emmanuel Marsigny, for his handling of the case.

My deep gratitude also goes to all those around the world who have shown their support with great generosity, patience and courage, despite the media lynching, the insults and threats.

Thanks to all of you, from the bottom of my heart. Your presence has given me strength.

My illness requires medical care that was incompatible with incarceration. My health condition deteriorated so much during detention that I am now under intense medical treatment. It will take time, Insha'Allah.

As I did a year ago prior to my detention, I reiterate my request to avoid insults and threats against the plaintiffs and those who support them.

The law and justice will prevail against slander and lies, without having to lose our calm and serenity.

I thank God for giving me the patience and the strength to cope with this ordeal and for granting me the courage to continue this fight to clear my name and for the manifestation of the truth.

I also have a particular thought for all those incarcerated who are innocent and ill, who are victims of injustice, not receiving proper care and are forgotten in prison.

Love of the Prophet, pbuh, drew him!

Despite his serious Surgery, Br. Ali Siddiqui went to a Program in Memory of the Prophet, pbuh.

It was in Washington, DC at Sakina Halal Grill just a few blocks away from the White House.

The owner of the restaurant and a well known humanitarian Pakistani American figure Kazi Mannan hosted a memorable seerat program in honor of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). It was my pleasure to speak about *Generosity* an essential aspect of Sèerat of our beloved Prophet (PBUH). Speakers included Pir Syed Saqlain, Dr. Hassan Abbas, Allama Usman Khan Noori, Maulana Tariq Mehmood Jami. Hafiz Saèed was MC while Br Asad Kamal, Br. Zulqarnain and others recited Naat to express their love. I was delighted to see Honorable Br. Ali Siddiqui attending Milad Sharif as a special guest in spite of his ailing condition. Br. Ali went through a major surgery last week...Alhamdolillah he is speedily recovering.

Against men by their Wives!

by Kabir Oyemomi

There had been 55 cases of men reporting domestic violence against them by their wives between January 2017 and now as against 14 that was recorded last year.

Between January and September 2017, a total of 852 cases of domestic violence and related cases were recorded in Lagos State. There were 564 domestic violence cases, 60 defilement cases, 30 rape cases, 11 attempted rape,123 child neglect and abuse cases, and 84 other cases .

This is contained in a report of Premium Times, quoting the Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice of Lagos State, Adeniyi Kazeem. Kazeem was also reported to have said that the data revealed that most sexual assault cases were perpetrated in the afternoon during weekdays, while corroborating that the victims know 95 per cent of the perpetrators of sexual violence.

Mr. Kazeem, according to Premium Times, noted, "under the year of review, we have witnessed an increase in domestic violence from Agege, Ikorodu and Oshodi. We have also witnessed an increase in reporting of cases via telephone and walk-ins from other states, mostly from Ogun, Osun and eastern part of the country."

The rate at which young wives are murdering their husbands in Nigeria lately gets young couple scared of marriage. This ugly situations do not exclude the Muslim folks at all. Rather, majority of both victims and assailants are Muslim.

Guest Editorial


Let us Understand the Failure of Global Organizations and Leadership.
by Dr. Mahboob Khawaja [Canada]

The global humanity is continuously oppressed, manipulated and victimized by the weapons of mass destruction - from thoughts to all kind of weaponry. Global peace, conflict management and security are neglected by those who were responsible for its protection and maintenance. Everything thinkable appears to be falling into dereliction and wanton destruction only to be reported as non-living statistic. The UNO Secretary General and most global leaders are entrapped lacking reasoned persuasion and activism to make peace and usher global harmony. They operate in a vicious circle of making statements, tweets and speculative wishful overtures as if the whole of mankind was inept and inattentive to the catastrophic challenges of the day.

Good judgments seek honesty of purpose, courage and rational thinking. When leaders talk about the emerging conflicts and human tragedies, they pretend as if none had ever happened before; as if they never opened the pages of history. History offers lessons to all generations all the time. Human perpetuated tyranny according to late Professor Howard Zinn is "tyranny." Insanity has no alternative rationale. Look how the UNO leadership and most global politicians witness transgression, forcible displacement and killing of millions and millions across Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Libya, Myanmar (Burma) and now Yemen but do nothing except put forward the fake UN-SC resolutions and dubious statements about crimes against humanity. The victimized mankind shares a sense of disarray and the loss of being part of global humanity. A view from afar only asserts conspicuous examples of inhumanity flourishing everywhere and seeing the proliferation of anarchy, violations of basic human rights and dignity, use of chemical weapons, and civilian massacres, but nobody questions why this now after the Two World Wars? Typical "Right Men" of the 21st century are unchallenged for torture, killing of the innocents, war crimes and genocide. The UNO Fact-finding Mission released the findings after 700,000 Rohingas were forcibly evicted from their homes; 20,000 men, women and children massacred and 10,000 women raped by the Myanmar armies. Would the Myanmar Generals be prosecuted during the lifetime of the victims? Almost 3 million civilians were killed by the US-British forces in Iraq. Nobody called it genocide by Bush and Blair. Both are free and enjoying life. Several millions have been displaced and killed in Syria - who will punish that authoritarian tyranny and insanity?

The UNO, global leaders and related organizations, are all attempting to rapidly transform humanity into a One World reality living on One Planet with inseparable identities and relationship to the Nature of Things. They should have been vigilant to "safeguard the mankind from the scourge of war." Global political affairs are not managed by rational people, with rational thinking, doing the rational practices for the interests of global citizenry. Rather the 1% global elite - men who think themselves kings operating the international institutions - the perverted insanity lacking basic understanding of Human Nature and of the working of the splendid Universe in which we enjoy coherent co-existence. Mankind continues to be run down by the cancerous ego and cruelty of the few Western leaders and institutions like NATO and NORAD.

Most global leaders represent a cruel mindset incapable of seeing the human side of living conscience. The madness of the perpetual war on terrorism and its triggered insanity knows no bounds across the global spectrum. Under the false pretext of terrorism, Western allies along with Arab leaders, bombed and destroyed the ancient culture and people of the Arab world. Animals do not commit massacre on their kind and other species, nor set-up rape camps for the war victims, the Western led wars against humanity have and continue to do so on an unparalleled global scale without being challenged by any global organizations or leaders. Torture and massacres of innocent civilians seem to be fun games to be defined as "collateral damage" and a statistic. Perhaps, they view humanity just in digits and numbers, not as the living entities with social, moral, spiritual and intellectual values and progressive agendas for change and development. Einstein ("The World as I see it"), made it known that he was against military campaigns, killing and destruction of the natural environment: "This topic brings me to that worst outcrop of herd life, the military system, which I abhor... This plague-spot of civilization ought to be abolished with all possible speed. Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism — how passionately I hate them!."

The Lessons of History Cannot Be Ignored
In his internationally acclaimed classic work A History of the Intellectual Development of Europe (NY Harper Brothers, 1864), Professor John W. Drapper, of the University of New York portrayed the human development process as "man is being treated as an individual" and not an embodiment of collective transformation leading past immersion into making of the present - and the present unfolding the future. Humanity is a helpless victim in a world divided for the purpose of socio-economic and political hegemonic controls by the few egoistic political entities. There are no conscientious leaders accountable to the interests of humanity. Ironically, with time and opportunities on their side, politically recognized leading powers at the UN Security Council forum failed to usher in a new era of change and peaceful co-existence. If the human developmental progress is viewed in an historical mirror, Professor Drapper makes a candid observation: "that it is a history of the progress of ideas and opinions from a point of view heretofore almost entirely neglected." All political actors claim to be working for mankind. Yet, few could relate themselves to the people if a reality check is applied by critical analysts. One cannot glorify the insanity of the past - the Two World Wars which consumed untold planned bloodbaths and countless pains and sufferings of the world. The question is how to extract ourselves from the sadistic past into a promising future?

Mankind Looks to People with New Ideas, Visions and Responsible Leadership

Mankind is constantly victimized by the willful deceit and triumphalism of the few who use extreme rhetoric of peace and harmony but deliver nothing except self-serving fantasies and neglect of prevalent truth. They embrace dishonesty of purpose by wasting time and opportunities that could have been used for positive developments to change the distorted scene of the global politics. Reason makes no difference to their immature mindset and their human conscience is filled with follies of political manipulation and exploitation of the humanity. The essence of global peace and harmony lies in collective thinking and unity of the global mankind.

Bombs and wars kill people - living human beings — destroying humanity by enforcing barbarism and cruelty, practically denying all prospects of peace and co-existence. Traditional wars were aimed at annihilation of political and economic enemies, but the 21st century conflicts are ready-made recipes not only to eliminate the mankind but also the environment in which human beings survive and the Planet Earth that sustains life. Wars appear to be the outcome of sinister minds, devilish individual plans and monstrous scheme of things against the very humanity of which these people are a living part. Like always, few cynical and mentally imbalanced people plan and wage wars against others, not mindful of the dreadful end results of their intrigues and conspiracies against life, human rights and dignity and futuristic possibilities of human survival on the planet.

Global Warlords are haunting mankind because wars are a racketeering enterprise. Most superpowers are engaged in selling weaponry to the Middle East dictators and warlords. History will judge them by their actions, not by their claims. You cannot change a society with law and order dictum. When a problem is misunderstood, its diagnostic approach will be wrong. An out of the official box approach to understand the problem is urgently needed. The major news media corporations in North America and Western Europe are aligned to the establishments and tainted with biased coverage as they get paid via ads and secret dealings. None of this is helpful to foster change and societal advancement for a peaceful future. Mankind looks for change in strategic thinking and actions. "In the name of "System Change, Not Climate Change", points out Paul Street ("For Intelligent Civilizations on Earth") "we can rescue and preserve humanity and livable ecology through mass resistance and a revolutionary transformation that takes us beyond the world's unelected and interrelated dictatorships of money, profit, empire, and eco-cide."

Aggressive thinking is propagated, echo of peace is silenced. Global peace requires People of New Ideas, new Thinking and New Visions. In a political culture much charged by conscious intransigence of the few, America and Europe are fearful of the unknown and have no vision for peace and co-existence either in the region or in a global context. NATO will go anywhere anytime under fair or foul pretexts. It has no accountability to anybody anywhere. Peace and security are not one sided pursuits nor can be experimented in a lab. There are many who could do a better and more productive leadership in the current global affairs. The Western leaders must embrace Russia on equal terms to envisage a new world of peace and harmony. Russia is no longer a former USSR but a changing landscape of reason and responsibility and gradually moving forward for a representative system of public governance. If that was not the case, how could Trump and Putin have met and strike an accord. Accords are based on mutual respect and understanding. America and Russia both need to change their policies and practices for a coherent future. Both desperately need to be proactive, culturally conscientious and intellectual unbiased leaders who should see the bigger picture of futuristic world - a different world of tomorrow of peace and co-existence rather than perpetuated animosity and extreme naïve belligerent behaviors, leaders who will serve the people and could learn to make a navigational change and adaptability to the making of a promising future for all the mankind. Mankind needs morally, spiritually and intellectually responsible leadership. All absolute rulers and leaders tried to run down the mankind as if it was a number- a digit and non-living statistic. But all of them fell in disgrace destroying their own nations and empires.

 Maulana Khadim Hussain Rizvi

Imran Khan regime took Maulana Khadim Hussain Rizvi by surprise.

On November 23, regime of Khan launched security operations against the entire leadership group of Maulana Rizvi, the leader of the anti-blasphemy movement. Among those arrested was the firebrand Maulana Qadri from Lahore. It appears that the police beat him up.

Hundreds of people came out to protest on November 24 but were attacked by police in large numbers. Many were arrested and others injured.

As the Khan attack was only on Rizvi, other Islamic groups were not able to mobilize in time to stop the arrests.

On November 25, Islamic groups defeated Imran Khan at his own game. Hundreds of thousands of people rallied in the inland city of Sukkur to condemn the secularist attempt to protect blasphemy. [Many came from other cities.]
Looks like it will be a long winter.

Jamaate Islami has been slow to respond. JI is always worried that there might be some violence and JI would be blamed.

Imran Khan is very cleverly supporting the western powers. His situation now is that blasphemer has been released and the anti-blasphemy leader Maulana Rizvi is in prison.

Maulana Rizvi is a great scholar of the Qur'an and the hadith and knows the ENTIRE poetry of Allama Iqbal from memory. He is fearless and will emerge victorious against Imran Khan inshaAllah.

Mass Suffering of the poor & lower Middle Class in Karachi.
Nov. 25.
Hafiz Naeemur Rahman, ameer of Jamaate Islami for Karachi, in a wide ranging analysis uncovered the shocking government activity against small shop keepers in the central area of Karachi known as Empress Market.

Naeemur Rahman pointed out that 6000 small structures have been demolished by the regime leaving 50,000 people without jobs and livelihood. As each of these 50,000 have several family members, this rash move is bound to have far reaching results in suffering of the people.

No warning was given, no compensation and no alternatives though the small shop keepers had established themselves there for several decades..

Hafiz Naeem is inviting a gathering of the displaced people to look for a just solution.

Spillover from Conflict in Syria and China.

On November 23, an attack on the Chinese
Consulate in Karachi's elite Clifton area left two police officers and two business men killed. The three attackers were killed after a one hour gun battle with an alert security unit. A female officer of the Karachi police is being praised for the quick response.

[China has interned about a million Muslims into camps in Sinkiang province where they are denied the right to worship or to have a copy of the Qur'an. In typical Communist fashion, the entire Muslim population is being "re-educated" to leave Islam. Gradually the horrible conditions of Muslims are being leaked out of Sinkiang.]

The second attack on November 23 was in lower Orakzai district on Pakistan's fronntier with Afghanistan. Reports indicate that shias were targeted: 33 were killed and 50 injured.

Pakistanis do not want to hurt Shias, so why this horror? It appears that Shias in Pakistan have been sending men to Syria to help Assad, the dictator of Syria, in his genocide against Muslims [about 300,000 Sunni Muslim men, women and children have been killed. ]

Army Hit hard by Islamic fighters in Borno State

November 24. According to the BBC, for the
first time the Nigerian army is admitting that it has been hit hard b y Islamic fighters in the northeastern state of Borno.

The military is refusing to admit how many of its troops were killed. Other sources indicate how serious are the losses:
Reuters news agency quoted an army officer as saying earlier this week: "The insurgents took us unawares. We lost about 100 soldiers. It is a huge loss."

The group which is attacking the army is said to be an affiliate of the Islamic State [IS].

The Nigerian army has committed genocidal actions against Islamic people in the north known as Boko Haram. The army murdered the leader of the Islamic group and hundreds of his supporters while they were prisoners. Tanks were sent into mosques.

Amnesty International has documented killing of hundreds of women and children by the army because they were related to Boko Haram.

The result of the army's atrocities has been that a sizable segment of Boko Haram is reported to have joined the Islamic State [IS}.

Panic in Afghanistan
November 24. Southeastern Khost province.
Regime troops who had gathered for ;prayers were struck by
a bomb attack and lost 27 killed and many injured. {Taliban claim troops supporting NATO are "apostates."

November 20. Kabul.
A gathering of religious clerics supporting the regime and carrying out sectarian religious activity were struck by a human bomber from Islamic State. Reuters is reporting 50 killed, 80 injured.

November 24.Kandahar province.

US is reporting one of its troops has been killed in Afghanistan.

This year 95 US troops were hit by Taliban but were wounded, not killed, owing to body armor.

A Kabul regime helicopter was hit by Taliban and burst into flames when it crashed, killing 2 regime officers in it and wounding two others..

Taliban who had started meeting with and talking to Americans are now saying, again, that as long as even one US soldier remains in Afghanistan, there will be no peace talks.

Observers say the stiffening Taliban position is owing to growing numbers of Taliban who are leaving and joining Islamic State fighters.


SDF Forced to retreat from al-Tank. US bombing IS families.
New Russian Air Strikes on fake Allegations.

November 25. At Al-Tank Oil field. SDF Kurds and their western allies are in full retreat after heavy fighting with the Islamic State. Fifty three Islamic State fighters are reported killed in the clashes while 79
SDF Kurds were killed, forcing the Kurds to retreat. IS has captured 18 SDF troops and executed oe SDF for crimes against IS civilians.
US air force continued to bomb IS enclaves on the eastern banks of the southern Euphrates killing 5 children, 4 women and 5 men.

November 24. ISIS fighters lauched an audacious attack on SDF forces in al-Bahra town killing 24 SDF. The fog helped IS to attack without being targeted by the US air force. By the time the US bombing began, IS fighters had left the target area.

November 25. Assad's artillery is shelling Al-Hbit town in southern Idlib position and Jarjanaz town west of Idlib province. Six Islamic towns in northwestern countryside of Hama were also shelled by Assad's artillery.

For the first time in November Russian air strikes hit Islamic positions on the western and southwestern sides of Aleppo city. The Russians clam that mortars from mujahideen groups hit the western side of Aleppo and allegedly caused several civilians to suffocate owing to poison gas. The mujahideen have categorically rejected this claim.
At late news, Assad's artillery shelled Lataminah and other towns in northern Hama province. Mujahideen retaliated with mortars against a small regime held town.

Novaya Gazeta reported that 6 Russian mercenaries of the private group Wagner have been killed recently while fighting mujahideen in Syria.

Mexican National who took refuge in a Church for 11 Months Arrested along with Protestors

Nov. 23
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — An immigrant who sought refuge from deportation in a North Carolina church for 11 months was detained Friday at a scheduled appointment with immigration officials, prompting more than a dozen supporters to block a law enforcement van and wind up under arrest themselves.

Mexican national Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was detained at a Raleigh-area immigration office, according to a U.S. Immigration and Customs enforcement news release.

The advocacy group Alerta Migratoria NC said in a statement that Oliver-Bruno went to have fingerprints taken so he could apply to stay in North Carolina with his wife and son. He has been living in CityWell United Methodist Church in Durham since late 2017 to avoid the reach of immigration officers, who generally avoid making arrests at churches and other sensitive locations .

ICE said Oliver-Bruno, who has lived in North Carolina for two decades, had no legal basis to be in the U.S. and had exhausted his "extensive" appeals. Oliver-Bruno pleaded guilty in 2014 to using false documents to try to re-enter the U.S. in Texas after a trip outside the country, according to court documents.

The person who reported the fire told authorities he was locked in by an electronic door lock, KTRK-TV reported.

Shamim Siddiqi Passed Away.
Leader of Islamic Da'wah in America.
Ignored by ICNA-ISNA during his life. "used" and Misused After he Passed.

by Kaukab Siddique

Br. Shamim passed away in Long Island, New York on November 21. My condolences go to his family.
Through the last 25 years of his life, he pleaded and preached to the Muslims of America to create an Islamic movement.

Like many other innocent Muslims, he aligned himself with ICNA and ISNA. For a whole decade he tried to change them into a genuine Islamic groups but finally realized that they were not going to give up their ties with the White House, the Pentagon and the FBI.

Then he found that our Jamaat al-Muslimeen was more open to his message than any other groups. We exchanged hundreds of emails in many of which he supported me against anti-Islam and munafiq groups.

Under my influence, he started writing on risky topics, for instance in opposition to American policies in the Middle East and Pakistan.

He was turning away so much from ICNA-ISNA that he became critical of Jamaate Islami Pakistan itself, the originator of these groups.

For decades the scoundrels in ICNA ISNA did not support Shamim. They relish telling lies and now ICNA has issued a statement claiming that he was one of them. Don't forget that ICNA admitted, that like ISNA it had been in bed with the FBI for decades.

When America was bombing Iraq, the President of ICNA, was sent on a global mission to improve America's image among Muslims. At times he stayed at American embassies [see his resume which he proudly published] .

Shamim was such a positivist that he wished for decades that Siraj Wahhaj would come back to the Islamic cause. This is the Siraj Wahhaj who betrayed the Blind Shaikh and helped a Jewish judge to sentence him to life in prison where he died in great misery.

If you want to check out ICNA's lies, go to Br. Shamim's greatest book GLOBAL ISLAMIC MOVEMENT. It has messages from Munawar Hasan, former ameer of Jamaate Islami, Dr. Javed Jamil in India and myself. Not a word from ICNA.

I cherished his books and distributed many of them. He was a good, honest and God fearing Muslim but was too soft on munafiqueen and habitual liars.

May Allah bless and reward Br. Shamim.

Guidance by Sis. Yasmin.

The Style and Stance of the Prophet, pbuh, in his Khutbas
The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) gave speeches while standing on the ground, on the 'Minbar' (pulpit) and while riding his camel whether or not the camel was male or female.

When he gave speeches, his eyes would turn red, his voice would become loud and he would become angry, as if he was announcing an invading army and saying to his people,
"The invaders will attack in the morning or the evening."
he used to say.... 'As for the Last Hour, I was sent like these two', and he pointed with his index and middle fingers. [Al-Bukhari].

he used to say, 'Amma Ba'du' (afterwards, here is what I want to say). Surely, the best speech is Allah's Book and the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad. Verily, the worst matters are matters of innovations (in the religion, the Bid'ah), and every Bid'ah is a Dhalalah (sin, or heresy)."[1]

When the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) gave a speech, he started it by praising and thanking Allah (Azza Wa jal) ....

As for the statement some scholars of Fiqh [2] utter, that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) used to start the Istisqa [3] Prayer by invoking Allah (Azza wajal) for forgiveness and the speeches of the two 'Eids [4 by reciting Takbir [5].

They have no established 'Sunnah' collected from the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) that supports their statement. To the contrary the Prophet's practical 'Sunnah' does not support their statements, because he used to start his speeches by thanking and praising Allah (Azza wajal) .

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) used to stand up while giving 'Khutbah' (speech).
There is a Mursa [6] statement collected from 'Ata that when the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) ascended the pulpit, he faced the people and said....
"As-Salamu 'Alaikum" (peace be to you)." [7] Ash-Shi'bi added that Abu Bakr and Umar (may Allah be pleased with them both) used to do the same [8].

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) used to end his Khutbah, by invoking Allah (Azza wajal) for forgiveness. He would often recite parts of the 'Qur'an' within his speech. For instance, Muslim narrated in his, 'Sahih', that Um Hisham bint Harithah said....
"I only learned Surat,"Qaf. By the Glorious Qur'an" [9], from the Prophet's tongue;
he used to recite it every 'Jumuah' (Friday), while standing on the pulpit addressing the people."
The Prophet's speeches contained Allah's praise and glorification, by mentioning His Favors and the Attributes of His Perfect Being, Worthy of all praise. He used to teach the fundamentals of Islam, mention Paradise, Hellfire and Resurrection, enjoin fear of Allah (Azza wajal) and mention the paths that earn His Anger or Pleasure. These were the subjects entailed in the Prophet's speeches. He also used to say in his speeches....

"O, people! You cannot implement all of what you were commanded. Therefore, strive hard (do correct actions) and receive the glad tidings." [10]

He used to address issues that suited the needs and that would benefit those listening to his speeches. He always started his 'Khutbah' by praising Allah (Azza wajal) and reciting the Two Testimonials, mentioning his own name while reciting them [11].
He used to say.... "Every Khutbah that does not start with the 'Tashahhud' (Two Testimonials), is like the leprous hand." [12]
