Qadar (Predestination)

qadar

Qadar is a very sensitive topic. It is the sixth pillar of faith, and many people have gone astray regarding it. Some have denied it altogether while others have gone to such extremes in affirming it that they end up denying human free will. The truth as elucidated in Islamic teachings is between these two extremes. In dealing with this topic in his book A‘laam as-Sunnah al-Manshoorah, Shaikh Al-Hakami has extracted from the works of the early scholars the majority of the most important points which must be grasped in order to have a correct understanding. His mode of presentation is the Q&A style, as it was designed as a concise teaching text, whose main body was easily memorized. The commentary represents a brief elucidation of some of the more difficult points through the addition of useful material from other classical texts like that of al-‘Aqeedah at-Tahaawiyyah as well as modern texts like Dr. Saleh’s compilation The Salaf’s Guide to the Understanding of Al-Qadaa wal-Qadar.

7 Habits of Truly Successful People

 

Motivational speakers have traditionally focused in their speeches on strategies and guidelines to achieve success in this world. While these strategies may help produce some limited benefits in this life, they fail to consider the life to come. As Allah, The Most High said “Know that the life of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting to one another and competition in increase of wealth and children – like the example of a rain whose [resulting] plant growth pleases the tillers; then it dries and you see it turned yellow, then it becomes [scattered] debris. And in the Hereafter is severe punishment and forgiveness from Allah and approval. And what is the life of this world, but a deceptive enjoyment?” In this audio presentation, Dr. Abu Ammenah Bilal Phillips discusses the true meaning of success and seven of the habits possessed by truly successful people – those who, through revelation, were promised Paradise. 7 Habits of Truly Successful People is not only an inspiring and soul energizing program, but a strong reminder and a road map to Islamic excellence.
