Notes: Tread carefully as its only my notes: Lecture can be find at:

How and why we love and respect the scholars of Islam:

The stingiest people—people who do not say sallahu Alahi Wa Salam when the prophet s.a.w. name is mentioned.

  • The lecturer came without knowing any of them—but they accepted him—because what brought them together was Allah.
  • Who are the scholars of Islam? Incorrect and impolite to just list their name
  • Importance of seeking knowledge
  • Importance of Scholars
  • Characteristics of the Scholars
  • How we deal with the people of Scholars—(respect, honor, and make dua for them)

  • Importance of seeking knowledge: Qul Hal Yastullatheenii…Can you say that those who haave knowledge or like those who don’t have knowledge?
  • Yusuf a.s.—Allah describes Yusoof—when he reached the age of maturity we gave him hukman and knowledge—Wataana–
  • Musa a.s. –Qasas—Allah described—when he reached the age of maturity vast wisdom—we bless those who are righteous
  • Those who poses knowledge are given by Allah understanding and wisdom

  • Man Yaruduallah yu faqihoo fi deen: “Whom so ever Allah wishes for good, He gives Him a firm understanding of this deen”

  • Hudaifa Ibn Yamamah narrated that the Prophet s.a.w. said “Fadlul 3ilm khyaru min fadlul ibadah” From Tabrani—Sahih: The blessings of knowledge is greater than the blessing of worshiping of ibadah: When you get knowledge you find and learn ways of worshiping Allah. (8:58

I absolutely love this lecture: “What is ibadah by Yahya Abdel Ibrahim”I keep listening to it again and again and every single time I hear and learn something a different thing. There is this part he talks about Love, Fear, and Hope in Allah and he give verses from the Qur’an. When it came to love he says that to love Allah and His messenger s.a.w. is to follow them.


Qul in kuntum tuhibboona Allaha faittabiAAoonee yuhbibkumu Allahu wayaghfir lakum thunoobakum waAllahu ghafoorun raheemun

. Say: “If ye do love Allah, Follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins: For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

And of fear he said the slave should not be so afraid that they cannot return to Allah.


Qul ya AAibadiya allatheena asrafoo AAala anfusihim la taqnatoo min rahmati Allahi inna Allaha yaghfiru alththunooba jameeAAan innahu huwa alghafooru alrraheemu

Say: “O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah. for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

And of hope, he says the servant of Allah shouldn’t have so much hope that he may think that Allah will forgive him for anything he does.

(insert verse later)

Anyway, subhana’Allah its been a fulfilling day Alhamdulilah. May Allah increase us all in Iman, guide us to the right path…and protect our hearts and souls.

(Wa ma Arasalanaca Illa Rahmatan Lil 3aleem) (We’ve only sent you, Oh Muhammed s.a.w. as a mercy for all of existence)

Allah raised Muhammed s.a.w. above the rest of the Prophets and Messengers.

Allah, when he would call other prophets and messengers He subhana’ wa tala would– Bi asmahim Mujarum) (He subhana’wa tala would call them only by their first name. I.e (Wa yaaa Adam askun anta wa zawjikal Jannata(baqarah) Wa Yu nuh… (Ya Musa Inee ana rabika fa3la na3lata (Taha) (Ya Zakariya inna nuburshirika bi qoolam ..) (Ya Yahya qudul kitaabe bi Quwaa) (Ya Isa Inee Mutawafeeka Wa Rafi3ooka Ilay)

Allah subhana’ wa tala would give Prophet Muhammed s.a.w. a title to honor him and raise him.

Ya ahyu Nabuya Ina Arsalan (Oh mesesener, oh rusool) Ya Ahya Rasool, Ya ahyul Muzzamil, Ya Ahyal Mudathir)

Subhana’Allah. Its amazing to see the difference in that which Allah has called His other prophets compared to the Prophet s.a.w. Its so beautiful that which Allah has called all of his prophets…I gotta get the Arabic verses typed out. I am in a hurry and gotta run to class, in sha’Allah I’ll do it tonight! 17:49

On a last note: It is amazing, mind blowing, for the creator of the earth to call a person by their name! Most exalted is He! Subhana’Allah.

Why do we love the Prophet s.a.w.?

Because our creator loves Him.

How does Allah love, honor, and elevate the Prophet s.a.w.?

In the Quran Allah says of the Prophet

1.) Ma Dalla Sahibakoom Wa Ma Qawaa ( Of his intelligence: He s.a.w. doesn’t make mistakes concerning this deen)

2.) Ma Kathabal Foadu Ma Raa (His heart s.a.w. was honored by Allah :His heart s.a.w did not lie to him about what he s.a.w had seen)

3.) Ma Zaqal Basaro Wa Ma Daqaa (Allah honored his sight: His eye sight didn’t make error)

4.) 3alamahoo Shadeedul Quwaa: His revelation was brought to him by one who is strong and powerful i.e Gabrial a.s. :Allah honored him by giving him the best of teachers: Gabrial a.s. who was also honorable.

5.) Wa Inakaa La3alaa Quluqin 3atheem : (Verily, Oh muhammed you have an exalted character)

16:20: To be continued

It’s pretty late and I gotta turn in. I want to be able to wake up for fajr…subhana’Allah the importance of waking up on time. I am forever reminded of that ayah in the Qur’an where Allah says Inna Salata kanaa 3alal mumineen kitaaban mu3ooda—from the one lecture—stating about the mumineen and performing their salaah at its appointed time. May Allah, the most high, make us of those who race towards His forgiveness, and race to fulfill that which was ordered by Him Azza Wa JaAllah, and perfecting our acts of worship so as to earn His pleasure.







Fear of Allah and Love the Messenger

Zatun 3ala Tariqah—provisions or things we must have while we move on the path.

First: Fear of Allah Azza Wa JaAllah

Second: Loving the Prophet s.a.w. more than anything else—showing this love by following him s.a.w.

Third: Dua—supplicating to Allah—a Dua is your direct line to Allah


Point 1: Fear of Allah.


Allah says in Surah Baqarah, (Fata Zawajoo Fa ina qara zaji Taqwa Wa Taqoo Niyaa Lil Albaab ) “Take provisions with you, and the best of the provisions that you can take Is the Fear of Allah. And fear me oh men of understanding”

What is fear of Allah?

The Al-Mutaqoon—the characteristics of those who Fear Allah

*Ala-Imran (Wa Sari3oo Ila Maqfiratin min rabikom Wa Janatoon 3ardoha sami wal ardi O3idadt Lil Mutaqeen) (“Be earnest, race towards the forgiveness of your Lord and Jannah, a Jannah whose width above the earth and heavens, its prepared for those who fear Allah”)

*[Alatheena Yon fiqoon fi saaraa wa daraa] (They are those who give in charity) Note: What they have and what they don’t have, [Wal Kafineenal Qaid] And Those who restrain their anger Note: They are angry but they restrain it. [Wal 3afeena 3anin Naas] But they also forgive the mistakes of others [Wa Lahoo Yuhubal Muhsineen] And truly, Allah loves those who do righteousness.

[Wa latheena Itha Fa3aloo Fahistahoom Othalamoo anfasahom thakaraAllah Fastafiroo Lithinoo bihim Wa Man Yafiroo thunaba Jami3a Ilallah, Wa Lam Yaseero Itha Fa3alo Oalika Jaazahum Ma3firatuhum Wa Janateen Tajree Min Tahtihl Anhara Qalideen fihaa—Wa Ni3ma Ajroon 3amileen ] “They are those who when they commit fahisha—people of taqwa fahisha—if they the do this—who wrong themselves—and they ask Allah for forgiveness—and they stay away from committing the sin again—for them they will many blessings from their Lord—and may gardens with rivers flowing underneath it—living in it forever—this is a fitting reward for those who do good.

What is Taqwa?

The greatest mufaasireen of the Qur’an : Abduallah Ibn Mus3ood r.a.: The Prophet s.a.w. said if you are going to learn the Qur’an from anyone learn it from four people : Mention in Buqhari 1.)Abdullah Ibn Mus3ood

Abdullah Ibn Mus3ood said that Taqwa is to obey Allah and never to disobey, and that your in constant remembrance of Allah so you are never lead to forgetting Allah, and that you are always thanking Allah so that you may never disbelieve in Allah.

Note: So that you never forget where your ni3ma is coming from

It’s to obey Allah, using the light from Allah: Qur’an and Sunnah

Hoping Allah to reward you

At the same time abandoning committing any evil deed

Also, because you have been given the light—you are in fear of Allah

The Prophet sa.w.—said to Muad—“Ya Mu3ad, ItaqiAllah haythomaa” Oh, Muad fear Allah wherever you find yourself—Tirmidi

Point 2: Loving the Prophet s.a.w. by following His sunnah s.a.w.

To be continued In sha’Allah— 13:40/28:23



Allah says in Surah Baqarah, (Fata Wazajoo Fa ina qara zaji Taqwa Wa Taqoo Niyaa Lil Albaab ) “Take provisions with you, and the best of the provisions that you can take Is the Fear of Allah. And fear me oh men of understanding”

I use to hear this verse all the time and loved the sound of it even though I didn’t know the meaning before..subhana’Allah the beauty of the sound of the words and the meaning of it is really awesome! I’ll never forget it now bithniAllah











Short lecture :20:02

Yahya Adel Ibrahim


What is holding you back?


As a Muslim student, women, man, etc—what is holding you back from doing that which is pleasing to Allah and forbidding that which is displeasing to Him.


Transmit what you hear and learn of this deen to others—your duty to do it.


We may miss salaah occasionally: Allah says (Insa Salata kana 3alal mumineen kitabaan Muqooda) “Surely, performing the salaah at is appointed time was specified for the believers”


You may wake up—how about your spouses and those around you?


What is holding you back?


Every time you pray it cleanses you from the sins you committed prior to performing the salaah.


Allah says in surah Jum3a : (Oh you who believe, when the call of prayer is called—run to the remembrance of Alllah and leave bai3a (business), this is truly what is good for you, if you truly understand, then when completed go back to the earth and seek from the bounties that Allah has given you)


Sahih—Imam Tirmidi: Whoever leaves jum3a three consecutive days without a valid reason—they are counted among the hypocrites.

The Qur’an: What is holding you back?

Reading, reciting, teaching it, reflecting its meaning

In hathaul Qur’an Ya hada lilathi Aqwam: Allah says “Have you not heard this Qur’an leads and guides to that which is strife, gives glad tidings to the believers, those who do righteous”


The prophet s.a.w. “whoever reads one harf…etc”—the Prophet is telling us to read one word of it at least.


We spend so much time studying: Do we as Muslim give the same dedication to the Qur’an, the hadeeth of the Prophet s.a.w., to this deen?


What is holding us back?


Allah orders in the Qur’an for the Prophet s.a.w. to ask Allah “Oh Allah increase me in knowledge” (Wa Qul rabi zitni 3ilmaa): Note: This is the only place in the Qur’an that Allah orders the Prophet s.a.w. to ask for the increase in something that he possess. The Prophet s.a.w. had knowledge but Allah was telling him it was not enough and to ask for it to be increased.

Man Yurdullah Yufaqihoo fi deen “Whomever Allah wishes good for, he gives him an understanding of the deen”


Whats holding the Muslim women from wearing hijaab?


The wisdom of the Qur’an: Ya Ayaha Nabiyo Quli Azwajika…“Oh prophet of Allah, say (proclaim) to your wives, your daughters, all the women of the believers to cover and draw clothes over them , this is better for them that they be known as the believing women, surely Allah is the most forgiving most merciful.


The Prophet s.a.w. said “Everyone of my ummah will enter Jannah except those who refuse themselves” The sahabi asked who would refuse to go to Jannah.

The one who obeys me

“Man Yudi3ee Rasool Faqat 3ada Allah, Wa man 3asani ” –To obey the messenger is to obey Allah, and whoever doesn’t will not enter Jannah.


What is holding us back:

What is holding us you and me back:

The answer:


Limiting factor: you are the one holding you back from Allah.


Hijaab/attending Jum3a in ‘Kosova’ example.


The Prophet s.a.w. said “Ya Mu3ad, ItaqAllah” Ya Mu3ad, fear Allah wherever you find yourself


You should have this consciousness-hope and fear in Allah wherever you find yourself




New lectures

Posted: February 21, 2008 in Yahya Abdel Ibrahim lectures


Years ago, when i was about 15 or 16 I discovered Yahya Abdel Ibrahim lecture series of Paradise/hell. Though, I haven’t listened to these lectures of late, I’ve discovered many of his other lectures. In the past two days I listened to (Tawhid of Ibadah), Protecting Against the Shaytan, and just recently Al-Ghaflah (Heedlessness of Allah’s Orders). All these lectures and many more can be found at Tawhid ibadah i found in my ipod as a friend downloaded for me in and is not available at the above link.

I am not really sure when i am gonna get back to Shaykh AbduBary Yahya’s lecture series…but as of now just going with the flow.

Well, till next time….May Allah shower His blessings upon all of us!
