There Is More to Islam than the Five Pillars

Jumu`ah Khutbah at Pengani Mosque

Translated from Arabic

O Muslims, believers! Shaytan is after those who have treasures, meaning Muslims who say, “Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadan Rasoolullah,” and they are fighting each other. Prophet did not run for power! He didn't come for a chair, but only to spread the word of Allah. Today any minister, president or leader needs security, but why need it? Allah is the Best Protector! If Allah makes an earthquake, what will happen?

O Muslims! Everyone likes to be a leader and that is why it is said that one of the worst of bad manners is love of leadership. Today they are teaching Muslims to be leaders. One of the biggest ailments, 'afa,' is love of leadership, and now they send people to Europe; they are selected them from their countries to poison and brainwash their minds (with that philosophy of leadership)!

O People! Be careful, as we are at the End of Times. The Day of Judgment approached when the moon split during the time of Prophet (s), when he was asked when that Day will come.

Prophet (s) answered Jibreel (a), “You know no more than I do.”

The Companions (r) asked, “What are the signs, yaa Rasoolullah?”

Prophet (s) said, “When you see the servant bearing your child; and when you see people of the desert barefooted and semi-naked, barely covering their bodies, compete in building high-rise buildings (as today Bedouins are doing);.”

(Adhaan, du`a)

Thanks to Allah, we seek His Help and Forgiveness from our sins and we seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and disadvantages of our wrong. Ash-hadu an laa ilaaha illa-Llah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan Rasoolullah! We thank Allah for making us to be from the ummah of Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! He is the Gem of the Muslims and the Gem of all creation! We thank Allah for making us to be from the Nation of Prophet Muhammad, who said without boasting, “I am the Master of the Children of Adam who will be under my banner on the Day of Judgment!”

We testify that Muhammad is His Servant and Messenger! And may Allah be pleased with the Companions, specifically with Sayyidina Abu Bakr as-Siddiq (r), Sayyidina `Umar (r), Sayyidina `Uthman and Sayyidina `Ali (r).

يس وَالْقُرْآنِ الْحَكِيمِ إِنَّكَ لَمِنَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ عَلَى صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Yaseen wa ’l-qur’an il-hakeem innaka lamin al-mursaleen `ala siraatin mustaqeem.

Yaseen. By the wise Qur’an, verily you are of the Messengers on the Straight Path.

(Surah Yaseen, 36:1-4)

O Present Believers! Fear Allah and obey Him!

وَالنَّجْمِ إِذَا هَوَى مَا ضَلَّ صَاحِبُكُمْ وَمَا غَوَى وَمَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ الْهَوَى إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا وَحْيٌ يُوحَى

Wa ’n-najmi idhaa hawaa maa dalla saahibukum wa maa ghawaa. Wa maa yantiqu `ani 'l-hawaa in huwa illa wahyun yoohaa.

By the star when it goes down, your Companion is neither astray nor being misled, nor does he say (aught) of (his own) desire. It is no less than inspiration sent down to him. (Surat an-Najm, 53:1-4)

Allah (swt) is giving us good news that those whose concern is the Last Day are saved!

Also, the Prophet (s) said:

لا تقوم الساعة حتى يتسافد في الطريق تسافد الحمير

Laa taqoom as-saa`at hatta yatasaafadu fi ‘t-tareeq tasaafadu 'l-hameer.

The Hour will not come until there are men and women in the streets having sexual relations with each other like donkeys. (Ibn Habban, Kitaab al-Fitan)

The Hour will not appear until the people have relations in the streets like donkeys. And the Companions (r) asked him, “Is that really going to happen, yaa Rasoolullah?” And the Prophet (s) said, “Yes.”

And you see today people go with their boyfriends/girlfriends public, kissing and having sexual relations.

Allahumma `jal awwal majlisinaa hadhaa salaahan wa awsatahu falaahan wa akhirahu najaahan. Allahumma `jal awwalahu rahmatan wa awsatahu nimatan wa aakhirah.

O our Lord! Make the beginning of this gathering goodness, its middle happiness and its end success. O our Lord! Make its beginning mercy, its middle bounty and its ending generosity and forgiveness!

All praise be to Allah (swt), Who humbled everything before His Greatness, made all things subservient before His Honor, and brought low all things before His Kingdom.
