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.
The University of the Prophet ﷺ

Knowledge must be taught with sincerity and respect for Allāh ﷻ, the Prophet ﷺ, the Ṣaḥābah (ra), the Tābi‘īn (ra), the Awliyā’ (q) and the Mashāyikh (q). The university of the Prophet ﷺ teaches knowledge with good behaviour. If you do not learn this, then your knowledge becomes ignorance.
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.

No Holiday for the Ego

Clean Your Heart
