Seeking Divine Appreciation

Reflection delivered on September 12, 2016 (Eid al-Adha) In this scintillatingʿĪd al-Aḍḥā message, Shaykh Amin delves into the depths of the Blessed Hajj rituals – rituals which are borne out of devotional human acts and enveloped with Divine appreciation.

A Word of Glee From the Heavens

Reflection delivered by Shaykh Amin on July 5th, 2016 (Eid al-Fitr) On the day of ʿĪd al-Fiṭr , as Muslims may draw their attention towards the various forms of persecution occurring in the Muslim world here on Earth, our Prophet ﷺ invited his Ṣaḥābah (companions) and us to draw our attention to the Heavens, where the Angels have just announced...

Shine the Light of our Dīn

Reflection delivered by Shaykh Amin on May 13th, 2016 In this talk, the Shaykh makes a rousing call for Muslims in the West to confront the societal darknesses we are faced with – to address them regularly and unequivocally with our children.

Prolonging the Process of Communal Strength

Reflection delivered by Shaykh Amin on April 15th, 2016 By the Grace of Allah ﷻ , the Muslim community in North America has experienced remarkable growth from an institutional standpoint. Despite all of our differences, Islam has been preserved and propogated at great lengths. However, with the rising tide of atheism, we find our youth leaving the dīn (fold of Islam) at...

Uniting Through Our Differences

Reflection delivered by Shaykh Amin on April 8th, 2016 The differences we have within our community need not be a reason to disunite – rather, coming together despite our differences is what makes any community, a civilization. Despite our cultural, ethnic and philosophical differences, Muslims are seen by the West as one community, indivisible. This positive spin on disagreement is...

What Keeps the World Running?

Reflection delivered by Shaykh Amin on March 11th, 2016 A Muslim must understand the state of our world not by appeasing to scientific and empirical conclusions, but by understanding and adhering to ‘waḥy’ (revelation). The Prophet’s have informed us of certain beliefs and actions which are based upon Divine truth. The extent to which a Muslim embraces these truths and clings...

Invert the Paradigm of “Madad”

Reflection delivered by Shaykh Amin on February 26th, 2016 In our quest for worldly guidance and eternal salvation, seeking Divine guidance through worship and service of others must be our primary method. It has been related through a Prophetic tradition that Allah ﷻ is in the assistance of His ﷻ servant, as long as the servant is in assistance of his brother....

Isolationism: Destruction from Within

Reflection delivered by Shaykh Amin on January 8th, 2016 In this talk, Shaykh Amin implores Muslims to depart from an isolationist mindset to an altruistic one when approaching issues of the Ummah on a familial, community, national and global level. This has been our tradition. Continuing a “selfish” mentality towards the strife of Muslims will lead us down a destructive...

Accessing the Divine Channel

Reflection delivered by Shaykh Amin on December 18th, 2015 To advance individual and societal reform, a Muslim must first seek certain “ruḥānī” or spiritual measures prior to necessary worldly efforts. The Prophetic method of seeking assistance was predicated on accessing the Divine as a primary measure – if done so with sincerity and etiquette, Divine Mercy and Blessings will be...

“…Our Share is to Come…”

Reflection delivered by Shaykh Amin on December 11th, 2015 “…Our Share is to Come…”: Shaykh Amin calls attention to the Prophetic paradigm, in which is exemplified that the attainment of worldly glory is not an objective of a Muslim’s life. What makes Islam’s message universal is that the downtrodden and destitute in this world can hope that glory and luxury...

Resilience in the Face of Tribulation

Khuṭbah (sermon) delivered by Shaykh Amin on November 20th, 2015 In this khuṭbah (sermon), Shaykh Amin centers his talk around ʿAlī’s (RA) words of wisdom, “if you feel you have a hard deal, then look to those who are worse off than you”.

Islam as a conscious choice

Khuṭbah (sermon)  delivered by Shaykh Amin on November 13th, 2015 Shaykh Amin makes a rousing call for truth-seekers to exchange their passive Islam (the Islam one is born into) for an active and living Islam that one chooses of one’s own volition. He exhorts us to exercise our God-given freedom to make this choice after heeding the message and the...
