"The Commercialization of Targeting Muslims and Imprisoning Enlightenment"
Friday Khutbahs (Sermons) · 04. February 2022
Recently, the Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University Law School filed a lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act. Pursuant to this lawsuit, the Brennan Center for Justice obtained information that it, in turn, publicized. Although the information obtained by the Brennan Center, along with the entire incident, was extremely significant; like many things that have to do with Muslims and with Muslim interests, it went virtually unnoticed. The Brennan Center uncovered that an...
"Trafficking 'Halal' Organs and Other Symbolic Signs of Our State"
Friday Khutbahs (Sermons) · 22. October 2021
Every week when I stand on this podium, there is the often weighty decision of what topics to address. This podium is the podium of the Prophet Muhammad. Anyone that stands before the congregation on Friday, anyone that chooses to go through the process of delivering a khutbah is assuming that podium and the responsibility that goes with it. It is the responsibility to be the voice of truth and goodness in the Muslim Ummah and to speak against what is wrong in the Muslim Ummah. So, what stands...

"Where Will You Be Next Ramadan? And the Pain of Racism"
Friday Khutbahs (Sermons) · 16. April 2021
This is the first jum'ua in the month of Ramadan. As God told us in Surah Al-Baqarah, the month of Ramadan is the month where the Qur’anic revelation starts and when the gift of the Qur’an is given to humanity. It is a month of guidance. It is the month that bears the possibility of an abundance of guidance and furqan (criterion), in addition to that special gift that God gives to human beings when they can differentiate between good and evil, between a purposeful life and an aimless...
"Transporting The Library"
Friday Khutbahs (Sermons) · 15. January 2021
This is a special jumu’a, as it is the first jumu’a for the Usuli Institute in its new home. The library, which is the heart and soul of the Usuli Institute, the heart and soul of my own entire personal legacy, and the heart and soul of this intellectual and moral project, has been moved from Los Angeles to Dublin, Ohio. This development provides much to reflect on. The ‘why’ is clear enough. In Los Angeles, although the library had a full house dedicated to it, the way that the library...

"A Profound Question From His Younger Son"
Friday Khutbahs (Sermons) · 11. December 2020
If Muslims did nothing more than reflect upon the often-repeated supplications that are at the core of their faith, Muslims would transform themselves and transform the world that they live in. So often, we repeat supplications, but their effective force and ability to transform have become vacuous. Recently, my younger son asked me a profound, yet simple question: "What does it take to be a good Muslim? What does it take for me to grow up knowing that I'm a good Muslim?" There are many ways to...
