Khutba: Set your goals high and strive

It is of the greatest losses in life, that we find ourselves at the end of our journey of life, having climbed the ladder of perceived success, only to reach the top and realise that it was leaning against the wrong building!

At this time of the year, many set aside a review of the year gone by, make resolutions and resolve to be better. But few write down goals for the year ahead and even less critically evaluate what went right and wrong in the time passed by.

Khutba: Dealing with your most difficulty day – 10 lessons from our beloved Prophet(SAW)

Stress affects everyone. Everyone of us faces stressful life situations and although stress itself is not an illness it can lead to depression, anxiety, psychosis and post-traumatic stress disorder. It’s important to know that there are ways to manage stress and Islam outlines such methods which is the topic of my khutba today.

Each of us goes through our own stresses whether that’s biological, psychological or environmental. These may be an illness, emotional or physical abuse, loss of someone close, divorce, low self-esteem, islamophobia at work or college, job or study pressures, social expectations, lack of control over a situation, substance abuse and many more.

Khutba from Nigeria: “What do you find the strangest of all things?”

very human is a slave. You’re either a slave of your desires or a slave of Allāh. You either live life by your rules or the rule of Allāh.

How can the heart travel to God if it’s chained by its desires?

O’ son of Adam! Sell this World for the hereafter and you win both, sell the hereafter for this world & you lose both. – Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyah
