"What is Your Contribution to The Muslim Consciousness?"
Friday Khutbahs (Sermons) · 05. November 2021
It is not an exaggeration to say that the biggest challenge that confronts us collectively as Muslims can be summed up as a challenge of the formation of Muslim consciousness. Week after week, day in and day out, what we are actually struggling for is the shape and the content and the nature of Muslimconsciousness. As much as we believe in Islam as an objective truth in our hearts and in our intellects, what we do with this objective truth that we believe in is between us and God. But what we...
"The Tyranny of the Nervous System & The Muslim Betrayal of Uyghur Muslims "
Friday Khutbahs (Sermons) · 11. June 2021
The challenge for Muslims, as is perhaps for all human beings on the face of this earth, is to live a life anchored in divine values, in the values that God has taught human beings; our core to the moral existence.

Bennabi wrote of three basic facets to human existence. The first is the ‘material’. This refers to the tools, artifacts, and elements of consumption, such as food, water, and minerals, that are...
"Who Invents Our Pharaohs"
Friday Khutbahs (Sermons) · 28. May 2021
The Qur’an mentions specific historical events that involved the prophets of God - between the prophets and the people they are sent to. The Qur’an, time and time again, goes back to these same narratives: The people of Pharoah, the people of Hud, the people of Thamud, and so on. Time and time again, God mentions the same people, although the structure of the narrative is very basic: an invitation, a truth denied, and consequences to the truth denied. Why does God keep referring to the same...
