Islam is not a “religion”
The Meaning of Man
This World and the Hereafter
Islam, the Message
Development and Underdevelopment
Justice and Spirituality
Defamatory Campaigns against Islam
Modern man no longer wonders!
The “what” and the “why”
O Bewildered Man!
Dear brothers and sisters,
You may have noticed that in my speech I have been deliberately addressing your minds, your hearts and your souls. The reason is that I am a man who seeks no reward from you in this world, but I rather hope to earn a reward from God—Exalted be He—in the Hereafter. At this stage, I say to each one of you: please read the Noble Qur’ān, go back to the Noble Qur’ān. Those of you who know Arabic very well, let them refer to some authentic interpretations of the Qur’ān for assistance. As for those who do not know Arabic very well, please exert every effort to learn it. That’s indispensable. But meanwhile, you may resort to some reputable, trustworthy translations of the meanings of the Qur’ān. The translation of the Qur’ān is something difficult. A translation does not convey the Message in its complete form. It only gives an overview, a foretaste of the Message of the Qur’ān.
In the end of this session, I ask God—Exalted be He—to grant us peace, security and guidance.
I seek refuge with God from the cursed Evil One, “In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. All praise is due to God, the Lord of all creatures. Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Master of the Day of Judgment. You do we worship and Your aid we seek. Show us the straight way, the way of those on whom You have bestowed favors, not (the way of) those who earn Your anger, nor those who go astray.” Amen.
O Lord! Shed Your blessings upon our Master Muhammad, the Prophet, and upon his wives, Mothers of Believers, his progeny, and his family even as You shed them upon our Master Abraham. You are Worthy of all praise, the Glorious. “Glorified be Your Lord, the Lord of Honor and Majesty, from the things they attribute unto Him, and Peace be upon the Messengers, and Praise be to God, the Lord of all creatures.”
