As Salaamu Alaikum.

I recently heard of this sheikh and he is very righteous in his speeches.
I love this particular video he gives on how we can serve Allah (SWT).
Please watch and let me know what you guys think.

Yes it's okay, the usual kind, though nothing new we didn't know before.   I connect with certain points very well, but not all.

I very much liked the closing statements.  Indeed however much we do for Allah can never be enough because He is perfect, we are not;  and because His kindness and mercy are infinite.  He is the only One Who is Perfect.

I didn't quite agree with his interpretation of V.12:108. 

"Say: This is my Way: I call on Allah with sure knowledge. I and whosoever followeth me - Glory be to Allah! - and I am not of the idolaters."  (12:108).

As he stated, path (Way) is a journey.  In a journey you have to make progress.  Every step brings you closer to your destination.  Every single moment you're making progress in the journey, so you're supposed do more everyday.  Of course we need to keep trying to improve our services to Allah.  But concerning V.12:108, I think that by the term "Way" (or path) Allah is referring to His complete set of instructions that make up our code of life.  In other words, "path" means the Quran itself which is the only Book containing the Laws of His Religion that have been "perfected" and "completed" as referred in V.5:3.

Brother, we might not have the time to go through all the lectures with detailed comments, and neither do we think it necessary to judge the opinion of others.   If you have any specific questions on any of the points of these lectures, do let us know by specifying them and and then we can give our opinion, InshAllah.

I also don't understand how he has come up with this interpretation for Verse 12:108.  In this Verse "Way" or "Path" surely means the Quran.

The Verses which conform with what he wants to express are as follows:


"So vie one with another in good works. Unto Allah ye will all return, and He will then inform you of that wherein ye differ."  (5:48.)

  OR


"They believe in Allah and the Last Day, and enjoin right conduct and forbid indecency, and vie one with another in good works. These are of the righteous."  (3:114).

 OR

"And vie one with another for forgiveness from your Lord, and for a paradise as wide as are the heavens and the earth, prepared for those who ward off (evil);"  (3:133).


He could have actually finished this 33 minutes lecture in 13 minutes if he hadn't gone on repeating every point again and again.

I suppose Nouman Ali Khan is in Malaysia on this video.  He states to the affect how happy everyone is being in Malaysia, a Muslim country, where they can all worship as Muslims with no obstacles.  Does he know that Shiia Islam has been banned in Malaysia?

True, he does explains things repeatedly in his lecture, but this is so the audience learns for sure; Allah (SWT) does the same thing in the Quran so the reader learns the message well. Nouman Ali Khan talks about this in some of his other lectures, truly miraculous (the Quran).

The Noble Quran consists of 114 Chapters and over 6,300 verses.  Nouman's lecture was barely 30 minutes.  But the point you missed was the Quran has a totally different purpose and style from human speech.  Repeating vital instructions by Allah is not the same as repeating words & incidents by humans in their conversations.  Moreover, Nauman Khan isn't really repeating any vital rules.  He is actually repeating the contents of his very plain lecture over and over again.  But he isn't the only one.  Almost all imams and so-called scholars have that habit.  All they need to do to resolve it is to make their lectures shorter.

Assalam alaikum sister
Are Shiias within the orbit of Islam? Kindly enlighten me because when I approached the Imam of our Masjid to pronounce the Nikah of my cousin with a Shiia girl,he simply refused and said "Shias are not Muslims" I did not argue with him due to lack of my knowledge and the Nikha was pronounced by a Shia Imam.
Thanks

Walaikum As-Salaam brother Abbotonian.  This Shiia / Sunni hostility has been going on for long.  I do admit that various things the Shiias uphold are unIslamic just the same way as several things the Sunnis uphold are unIslamic too.  They both deride each other yet both commit violations through man-made laws, fabrications, crazy fatwas etc.  It's the usual story, nothing  that we don't already know about them.  Both have deviated from the Quran, there are no doubts about that.  However, inciting sectarianism is a terrible approach.  Officially Shiias are just as much Muslims as Sunnis.  Therefore I would say that it was wrong of that imam to refuse reading the nikah.  Such belligerence only deepens sectarian divide, and as a result of that we can see what has happened to our Ummah worldwide.  It's just getting worse with time.  In the days of our parents and grandparents, Sunni/Shiia marriages were very common.  And it was totally unheard of that the imam would refuse to preside over the nikah ceremony of a Shiia/Sunni marriage.

You also did well by not arguing with him.  I would advise you never to argue with these people.  They aren't educated folks and it's impossible to communicate with them.  The fact that the Shiia imam pronounced the nikah does obviously prove that in this case the Shiia imam was more tolerant and civilized than the Sunni imam. 

What Sister Ruhi apparently meant was that sectarianism in predominantly Sunni Malaysia has gone so far that it has banned Shiia Islam altogether.  This is a very extreme decision.  Like I said, Shiias have made just as many mistakes as the Sunnis have, therefore the Sunnis have no right to take such steps.  Moreover, such decisions disrupt the harmony of a cordial Muslim society and shatter its unity, creating bad relations and resulting in an uptight atmosphere that never lead to success.  As the saying goes, 'united we rise and divided we fall.'  No wonder our non-Muslim enemies are so happy to see us fight. 

May Allah guide this Ummah.  Their first mistake is to drift away from the Quran.  And their second mistake is to spread the sectarian culture.

As we always uphold, Muslims are just Muslims.   No matter who calls themselves Sunni or Shiia, I simply look upon both as our Muslim brethren.  Whatever mistakes they are making, Allah will Judge them on the Day of Resurrection, just as He will Judge everyone on that Day.  Guiding them is not my responsibility.  My responsibility is not to become a party to their practices, and to follow the guidance for the benefit of my soul.  If someone asks for my advise, then I will tell them what I perceive as right and true.

Assalam alaikum sis Zaynab
You are absolutely right in saying that we should try to narrow the gap instead of widening it,but unfortunately due to petro dollars from Wahabis and their propagation against Shia Islam has widened the already existing gap between these two sects.Similarly Wahabis are working against the Alawis of Syria by pouring in millions of dollars thus putting fuel to the fire.May allah guide them and provide them with the courage to unite the Ummah instead of dividing.
So far as I am concerned,I can never hate a person just because he or she does not believe in what I believe,and Allah will judge where ever people differed among themselves.
Thank you for your enlightened post and yes "United we rise,divided we fall"
Allah bless you.
