Extracts from the Jum’uah Khutbah delivered in Masjid Al Nabawi, Madinah (18 December 2020)

Allah the Most High says: “The Most Compassionate who is established on the Throne. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth and whatever is in between and whatever is underground. Whether you speak openly or not, He certainly knows what is secret and what is even more hidden. Allah—there is no God worthy of worship except Him. He has the Most Beautiful Names.”

The King whose authority controls the universe, by His command and permission. The Lord of all kings and dominions. He gives authority to whomever He pleases and removes it from whoever he pleases; He honors whomever He pleases and disgraces whomever He pleases—all good is in His Hands. Surely, He alone is Most Capable of everything.

The believers believe that He is the true Lord and the Exalted. They believed in Him willingly with actions, and the rest of the creation by compulsion. He is the source of security for the fearful and the refuge for the deprived. There is no refuge nor security except from him and to him.

He is the All-Great, the Most High, and the Most Honorable in His essence, His attributes, His authority. Everything besides Him is insignificant. He is High above all what they have claimed besides him as partners. There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing.

Exalted is He above having companions, partners, or equals. He is the most wise in His decree. He is the true Lord and his speech is the truth. His judgment is just, decisive, and flawless. Nothing can be concealed from him. He is the Wise, the Acquainted.

0 you who have believed, fear Allah. And let every soul look to what it has put forth for tomorrow – and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is Well-Aware of what you do.

And be not like those who forgot Allah, so He made them forget themselves. Those are the defiantly disobedient.

Not equal are the companions of the Fire and the companions of Paradise. The companions of Paradise -they are the attainers [of success]
