The Two Impediments to a Muslim’s Ibadah

Reflection delivered on May 18th, 2018 In this simple yet profound message, Shaykh Amin points to two vices which, if present, will prevent a Muslim’s heart from softening despite his life-long ‘ibadah – arrogance (kibr) and stinginess (bukhul).  Without their presence, there is no reason a Muslim who makes salah 5 times a day should contain a soft heart; and yet with its...

Reflection delivered on April 13th, 2018

Commitment to Deen in an Ever-Changing Context

Reflection delivered on October 13th, 2017 In his Friday reflection, Shaykh Amin calls our attention to the Seerah of Prophets throughout history, where the context may have varied in each situation, but the message remained universal.

Fruits of Isra and Mi’raj

Reflection delivered on April 13th, 2018 In this profound address on the topic of Isra al M’iraj, Shaykh Amin draws our focus upon the very foundation of The Night of Ascension, which is Salat. The five daily prayers must not be perceived as a responsibility, rather a hand-delivered gift from Allah to His Rasul that will contribute to our own...

Prophetic Intelligence as Our Portal to Success

Reflection delivered on January 26th, 2018 All Prophets have been chosen through Allah’s Grace to be the inheritors of knowledge that stretches beyond time and space.  We accept this notion irrespective of context of the Nabi’s race, culture or time period. The Prophet Muhammad (s) being the ultimate recipient of God’s grace, we accept him as possessing a scope and depth...

Knowledge as the Greatest of All Blessings

Reflection delivered on January 19th, 2018 Service of God is derived from knowledge, and this makes knowledge one of our greatest ‘inamat (blessings). In this Friday reflection, Shaykh Amin explains why a recognition of this concept and embracing this great blessing will transform us into a true Muslim nation that is uncompromisingly proud of our mode of Divine servitude.

A Return to Islam’s Civilizational Code

Reflection delivered on June 25, 2017 In this Eid message, Shaykh Amin presents us with a retrospective view of the Ummah’s adherence to Islam’s civilizational code through the ages. Just as our observance of the Eid-ul-Fiṭr holiday and its customary acts of worship has been perpetuated through the centuries, so too must we carry forth the legacy of adab (etiquette)...

Ramadan Reflection Series with Shaykh Amin, #5 – Ramadan 22, 1438

Reflection delivered on June 17, 2017 There is no greater ʿibādah (worship) after the obligatory acts than the recitation of the Qurʾān. Shaykh Amin sheds light on the significance of the order of Qurʾānic recitation in tafsīr. Laylat al-Qadr only shows itself to those who drop their foreheads into sajdah (prostration) as a consequence of Iqraʾ. Click to Play...

Ramadan Reflection Series with Shaykh Amin, #4 – Ramadan 16, 1438

Reflection delivered on June 10, 2017 Shaykh Amin makes the case that the need of the hour is for Muslims to understand that their Islam is established in the person of Muhammad ﷺ.
