The Calamities of Ash-Shaam

Urgent lecture explaining the situation in Ash-shaam and that the Authority (Tamkeen) cannot be given in the land without trials, tests and calamities as this is a universal way of Allah, as it was the case of the Prophets and the true believers. The lecture also incites us to support the brothers in As-shaam by any means possible.


Nusrah For Bilaad Al-Shaam

“The city of the Muslims on the day of the Great War (al-Malhamah) is in a fertile oasis next to a city called Damascus, and it is from the best cities of Sham.”

“Go to Sham, for it is the chosen land of Allah’s lands, and it is the destination of His chosen servants.”

“Glad tidings for Sham, glad tidings for Sham, glad tidings for Sham.” The Companions asked: “And why is that, O Messenger of Allah?” He replied: “O glad tidings for Sham. The Angels of Allah spread their wings over Sham.”

“If the people of Sham become corrupt, there is no good in you. There will always be a victorious group of my Ummah. They will not be harmed by those who betray them until the Hour is established.” And in one narration: “And they are in Sham.”



The concept of the Mahdi is one of the most controversial and greatly misunderstood topics. Different sects have proposed radically variant beliefs about him. In this lecture Sheikh Abu Adnan sheds light on the Prophetic descriptions of the Mahdi. He explains the signs of the Mahdi, the trials and tribulations that shall accompany him, sorting out fact from fiction. What he looks like? What is his role? what are his achievements? what do the Shi’a believe about him?


Treating Waswaas

“And if an evil whisper comes to you from Shaytaan (Satan), then seek refuge with Allaah” [al-A’raaf 7:200]

“The Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said: ‘The Shaytaan comes to some of you and says, “Who created such and such? Who created such and such?” – until he says, “Who created your Lord?” If that happens, then let him seek refuge with Allaah and stop thinking about that.’ ” [Al-Bukhaari (3276) and Muslim (134)]

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said: “The Shaytaan said to the Lord of Glory: ‘By Your Glory O Lord, I will keep trying to misguide Your slaves so long as their souls are in their bodies.’ The Lord said, ‘By My Glory and Majesty, I will continue to forgive them so long as they ask My forgiveness.’” [Ahmad in al-Musnad]


The Intellect & The Concept Of Majority

Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding... [Surah Imran: 190]

If you obeyed most of those on earth, they would misguide you from Allah´s Way. They follow nothing but conjecture. They are only guessing. (Surat al-An'am: 116)


Adhering to The Quran & Sunnah

It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have an option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error. [33:36]. O you who believe! Do not forward (& speech or objection) in the presence of 'Allah and His Messenger (the Quran & Sunnah), and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. [49:1].

Scholars or Falsifiers?

To answer to the comments made by sheikh Al- Azahr about the Niqab, andthe lessons the Ummah needs to learn from his comments Allaah (swt) says: And recite (O Muhammad (peace be upon him)) to them the story of him to whom We gave Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), but he threw them away; so Shaitân (Satan) followed him up, and he became of those who went astray.

The Ladder Of Satan

This lecture describes the steps Satan takes to lead people astray starting with Shirk then bida’h then major sins, also unveils the plots of Satan as they are described to us through the Quran and the Sunnah. The struggle against Iblees and his party- may Allaahs curse upon him- is a great battle which this enemy of Allaah persisted in undertaking since the pursuit against Aadam s-saliam and his offspring. He is at work all the time, at every moment, at every available opportunity, manipulating any circumstances and continuing his chase from every conceivable angle. The Lord of the Worlds, Blessed and exalted has informed us about this.


Victory In The Hands Of A Few

By Sheikh Abu Adnan. "How many a small force has triumphed over a much greater one by God's permission! God is with the steadfast." (Surat al-Baqara: 249) Allah loves those who fight in His way in ranks like well-built walls. (Surat as-Saff, 4)


Corrupters Of The Heart

Ibn al-Mubarak said: I have seen wrong actions killing hearts, And their degradation may lead to their becoming addicted to them. Turning away from wrong actions gives life to the hearts, And opposing your self is best for it.


Calling All Witnesses

When the earth is shaken with its (final) earthquake. And when the earth throws out its burdens, And man will say: "What is the matter with it?" That Day it will declare its information (about all what happened over it of good or evil). Because your Lord has inspired it. That Day mankind will proceed in scattered groups that they may be shown their deeds. So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it. And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it. [Az-Zalzala]
