Is There Anyone with Wisdom?

This is only a temporary home. Everything belongs to Allāh ﷻ. If you spent your whole life in sajdah it wouldn’t be enough to thank Him ﷻ. And when the food, drink, air He ﷻ gives you is done, you die. So use it well and move on.
The Finger of Shayṭān

Ḥalāl and Ḥarām

There is law, sharī‘ah, in Islām that is fixed for everyone. It defines what is ḥalāl and what is ḥarām. You must be careful not to mistake your customs for the law and not to say what is ḥalāl is ḥarām, or what is ḥarām is ḥalāl.

Accept Your Weakness

To Catch a Thief

The Shaykh tells a story from Rūmī (q) to illustrate that the people shouting today are causing confusion and distracting others from the way of reality. Islām is the religion of mercy and beauty.
