Khutbat e-Asifia – There was a time when diving for pearls was the only way of bringing these delicate shimmering spheres out of the ocean and into the light of day. As a result, there are very few pearl divers around these days. Hadrath Shaykh is such a diver, and these talks are the pearls that he retrieves from the ocean of Ma'arifat' of Allah. We should add that these pearls are undoubtedly most effective when taken directly from the hand of the diver, and we would urge any reader who has the opportunity to come and ask for such a treasure. Masha'Allah they are always freely given. :)
The ancestors of Hadhrat Ghareeb Nawaz Khwaja Fazal Ali Qurayshi rahmatullah alayhi migrated with the Abbasi Yalghar from Arabia to Sindh and then from there they moved on to settle in the district of Mianwali. Their settlement became famous by the name of Da’ood Kheyl. Due to being of Abbasi and of Hashimi descent the Shaykh’s family was called ‘Qurayshi’ by the public. The Shaykh was born at Da’ood Kheyl in the year 1270 Hijri.Read More »
It is related by Atiyyah Ibne Urwah radhiallah anhu that Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said: “Anger is roused under the influence of Shaytaan, (i.e. one goes beyond the limits laid down by Allah under the influence of the Devil), and Shaytaan has been created from fire, and fire is put out with water. So, when any one of you is seized with anger, let him perform wudhu.”

This is a simple daily habit checklist. The idea is you build these habits (one by one) in such a way that it becomes second nature to you. You will have to understand that this will only happen if you have a schedule(time table) in place for your daily activities and are strict in it.
Insha’Allah through this menial effort in trying to make myself be more focused, by sharing this, I’m hoping that;
– it makes you be consistent and punctual in your amaal,
– keeps you motivated and disciplined when the going gets tough,
– recharges your iman,
– makes you persevere in ridding sin’s and other bad traits
May Allah swt make this a means of forgiveness for me and you, deliverance from hellfire and make us all enter the gates of Jannah laughing. Aameen ya Rabb

Lo! Allah forgiveth not that a partner should be ascribed unto Him. He forgiveth (all) save that to whom He will. Whoso ascribeth partners to Allah, he hath indeed invented a tremendous sin. Hast thou not seen those who praise themselves for purity ? Nay, Allah purifieth whom He will, and they will not be wronged even the hair upon a date-stone. See, how they invent lies about Allah! That of itself is flagrant sin.
(Surah An-Nisaa v.48-50)
Allah forgives not that partners should be set up with Him; but He forgives anything else, to whom He pleaseth; to set up partners with God is to devise a sin most heinous.
Hast thou not turned thy vision to those who claim sanctity for themselves? Nay – but Allah doth sanctify whom He pleaseth. But never will they fail to receive justice in the least little thing.
Behold how they invent a lie against Allah! But that itself is a manifest sin.

Alhamdulillah, all thanks are due to Allah who gave me this opportunity to sit amongst pious people such as yourselves. I pray that Allah raises your status and forgives me through your attending this gathering of dhikr. The fact that you have taken steps towards this nawaafil act of worship is indeed a sign of love for Allah. I ask you to pray that I too may acquire such love in my heart, and I in turn pray that He increases the love that already exists in your hearts.
It is quite common these days to hear people complaining about those who practise Deen (the religion of Islam). Often they complain that they entrusted some goods with someone, or invested in a business with someone, thinking that he was pious and honourable, but that he then cheated them. They never imagined that this would happen. He was very ‘Deen-dar’ (practised Deen), prayed his Salaah, dressed Islamically, had the appearance of an angel and always had a tasbeeh in his hands and so they trusted him. They lent him money, but he turned out to be a charlatan and ran away with the money. These types of complaints are very common against Deen-dar people. They pray, they dress and look like angels, their foreheads are imprinted due to their many prayers, yet they turn out to be frauds. Because of these experiences people do not come towards the Deen.
The first to lead the way, the Muhajireen and the Ansar, and those who follow them in good deeds – Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with Him, and He has prepared Gardens under which rivers flow for them to dwell in forever. That is the supreme triumph. Surah Taubah v.100
By Allah’s blessing, mercy and favour I have been given the ability to recite a great ayah from Surah Taubah. May Allah ta’ala make us fortunate enough to practice upon this ayah and to beautify our lives under the shade of the Quraan.
