"O you who believe (Muslims)! When the call is proclaimed for the Salat (prayer) on the day of Friday (Jumu'ah prayer), come to the remembrance of Allah [Jumu'ah religious talk (Khutbah) and Salat (prayer)] and leave off business (and every other thing), that is better for you if you did but know!

Then when the (Jumu'ah) Salat (prayer) is finished, you may disperse through the land, and seek the Bounty of Allah (by working, etc.), and remember Allah much, that you may be successful.“

(9/10, Surah Jumu'ah)

Surah Al-Kahf [18:109]

“Say: If the sea were ink (wherewith to write out) the words of my Lord, sooner would the sea be exhausted than would the words of my Lord, even if we added another sea like it, for its aid.”

The most beautiful verse in Surah Al Kahf (The Cave) SadaqAllahu Al Adzheem!
Jumu'ah mubarak you beautiful people.



We cannot escape from the ruling of Allah subahna wa ta'ala on us. From time to time we’re just moving out from the road this way and that way but we cannot escape. The rope is in His hand. If he doesn’t permit us then we cannot breath the air. So, “We live as we like.” We don’t. That’s how it looks like that we do, but we don’t. Down in the road they catch us. There are guards that are waiting and stopping, saying, “This is the area. You cannot pass beyond this. Let’s see what you came here with.” So who’s an intelligent man? An intelligent man is he who runs after his faith to protect his faith. That one is an intelligent man. And the intelligent man must have faith.

Insan-e-Kamil - The Perfect Man

We need to learn how to become human through the Insan e-Kamil, through the perfect man. We’ve pulled ourselves back from the fitnah of this Ahir Zaman, the fitnah of this cities, to the top of a mountain, to live with and to live under one of the Insan e-Kamil of this time. Insan e-Kamil, it is not according to our understanding of what insan e-kamiltoo. We cannot give a title to our Sheykh. Allah gives a title to him. The feet cannot choose the head.

So, we are here, following our Sheykh. Trying to follow our Sheykh. Don’t be here physically.  Don’t be here looking like a murid. The external description of  a murid but the inside, what you are busy with again, is nothing but your ego or your desires, or what you want. If we do that, we have lost. Because we have wasted this opportunity. We have wasted this space that Allah swt has given to us, out of millions of people, to be up here.

 Alhamdulillah, our Sheykh is reminding us, 24hrs:  Stand at the door of Syukur. You are filled with difficulties? Stand at the door of Syukur. You are filled with burdens? Stand at the door of Syukur. Definitely that time, your difficulties and your burdens,  some way, somehow, it will be lifted, it will become easier for you to carry. Answer will come without you  running here and there, like a  headless chicken, panicking to do something.

Q:Why Is Jummah  A Holy Day? 

Why Jummah is a holy day? That’s a good question. The Jummah is the day that Allah swt, He Himself has chosen and so many holy things happen in the Heavens and in the earth on that day of Jummah. He has picked that day, because there are qualities of that day that is filled with blessings and there are events that are blessed that happened on that day. It is the Sultan of the days. Everything has a Sultan, and the Friday is the Sultan of all the days; just as the Fajr prayer, it is the Sultan of all the prayers.

So that day of Friday, it has always been Holy; not since 1400 years when Prophet came and saying Friday is Holy; it was Holy during the time of the Bani Israel. It was Holy during the time of Adam (as). It is Holy in the time when there were no days as we understand in this world; days that is in Ahirat. When the world was created, when other major things happened, and other things that are going to happen, it happen on a Friday. And the Friday it is so Holy that Holy Prophet (asws) is saying, it has more blessings than your two Bayrams combined. And this is one of the things that makes a believer to fall, his faith to fall: when he is not keeping the Friday Holy.
