Be Light: Three Keys To Being Ambassadors Of The Prophet

SouthAfrica2015-HoughtonMosque-ShaykhFarazRabbani-IMG_459426428-3Listen to Shaykh Faraz Rabbani’s jummah khutbah at Houghton Masjid, South Africa on 24th July 2015.

While other Prophets were given “manifest proofs” (bayyinat) by Allah, the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was himself sent as a manifest proof (al-bayyina) of the truth.

“Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, were not going to depart (from their ways) until there should come to them manifest proofs, A messenger from Allah, rehearsing scriptures kept pure and holy, Wherein are laws (or decrees) right and straight.” [Surat al-Bayyina, verses 1-3]

He embodies, manifests and serves as clear proof of Guidance and Truth.This is why he is referred to as being the Shining Light (siraj munir). “And as one who invites to Allah’s (grace) by His leave, and as a shining light.” [Surat al-Ahzab: verse 46]

Shaykh Faraz Rabbani explains the essential characteristics of the Prophetic way in this Friday khutbah at the Houghton Mosque in Johannesburg. The Prophetic way is a way of beauty, virtue, mercy and excellence.

To be true followers of the Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him and his folk) we must strive to reflect this shining light–and to strive to become “manifest proofs” in our own examples of truth, guidance and good.

Shaykh Faraz explains three keys to this, namely:

(1) the light of faith, nurturing it with dhikr and uprightness

(2) the light of good character in dealings, seeking Allah thereby — Hadith.

(3) the light of excellence in choices, choosing Allah in tests, trials and all decisions.

Do Something about it!

A timely call for us to be proactive in these challenging times:-

As-Salamu alaikum brothers and sisters,

As you very well know, many of us have been attending conferences and forums especially in the last 14 years after 9/11 explaining and speaking about Islam and the Muslim stance in regard to many different issues but more importantly about the recent violent acts of extremism done in the name of our faith. These acts are becoming a daily news and a global phenomenon happening almost everywhere around the world including here in Canada with the recent attacks and threats. We are inviting everyone to do his/her share by getting involved in our programs but urgently in our social media campaign.

Here is how you can help us:1. Watch the following 11 minutes video released today, Friday, Jan 23. It is called “The Legacy of Peacemaking”. Please forward the link to all the Muslims and non-Muslims that you know around the world:
