Q: Can I Work In A Bank As A Computer Programmer?

Most of us are well aware of the reasons why working in a bank is impermissible. However, do these reasons apply even if your job has nothing to do with any haraam taking place? What should you do if you already have a job as a programmer?

I explain the answer to this question in the video below.

When the Prophet(S) started spreading the word about Islam, some of his own family members converted to Islam as they saw the truth In this Episode of Lives of The Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr Yasir Qadhi continues Part 2 of explaining some The Family of the Prophet(S).

Abu Lahab(Uncle of The Prophet), also named Abdul U’zza, married the sister of Abu Sufiyaan, Umm-Jameel/Arwa. He had four children, three sons and one daughter. Three of them converted to Islam while one of them passed away as a Non-Muslim. One interesting fact is that the daughters of the Prophet(S) were married to Abu Lahab’s sons. This was all Pre- Islam. His two eldest sons were ‘Utbah, married to Rukayah and ‘Utaybah married to Umm-Kulthum. Even when Islam began, the marriage remained as it was. Then Allah(SWT) revealed Surah Al-Lahab.

This is a magnification of a mosquito’s leg. It was made through a special lens that magnified it 800 times. To give you an idea how much that is, a picture of an average grain of rice, if magnified to that extent, would be around six meters, or roughly twenty feet long.

We are expected to believe by those who deny God that such beauty, precision, utility and effectiveness simply ‘came to be’, on its own. We are told that such is the Law of Nature and so states the Theory of Evolution. Changes at the DNA level simply occurred as random mutations, such that the aggregate result of billions and billions of random mutations is seen in this picture.

But at what point does it actually become more rational and reasonable to believe in a Supreme Deity – a Being who not only created this perfectly sculpted leg on a minuscule insect, but also created that insect, and what it feeds off of, and the environment that all of these creatures live in, in a perfect and harmoniously balanced ecosystem?

There is no argument for the existence of God as simple, as self-evident, and as powerful, as the argument from the creation itself. In every being there is a sign, and in every creation there exists proof of the Creator.

“Can there be any doubt about Allah – the Originator and Creator of the heavens and earth?!” [Surah Ibrahim; 10]


During the Prophet’s time(S), a number of people converted to Islam when they saw the truth while some chose to reject his message. In this Episode of Lives of The Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr Yasir Qadhi covers some of the immediate family members of Prophet Muhammad(S), from his tribe ‘The Banu Haashim’, and in particular, ‘The Banu Abdul-Muttalib’, amongst them who became a Sahabi(The ones who converted from his immediate Uncles, Aunts & Cousins)

We begin with Abdul Muttalib, the grandfather of the Prophet(S). The number of children he had was not too clear, but most historians state that he indeed had seventeen children, eleven boys and six girls. These seventeen children came from six different wives Abdul Muttalib had throughout his life. His first wife was Safiyah Bint-Jundub, and from Safiyah he had two sons, Al-Haarith and Khutham. The order of the children is not specified but we do know that Al-Haarith was the oldest of the seventeen children.

One of the blessings of completing a recitation of the Quran is that many of the Companions and early generations told us that one’s du’a is accepted after finishing a recitation.

Ibn Mas`ud said, “Whoever finishes the Quran will get his du’a accepted.”
And Mujāhid said, “Allah’s mercy descends on the one who finishes the Quran.”
And Anas b. Mālik would call his family and children when he finished the Quran, and make a du’a with them present.

So pick up the Quran, and read from it daily, and when you finish, make a special du’a – chances are it will be accepted!

I’ll be teaching one of my favorite classes in London, UK from 8th-10th December 2017.

Class location: The Atrium, in East London.

During this class, we will cover the life and times, the methodology and goals, of this amazing and most authentic work of Hadith ever written. And we will study over 75 Hadith in detail, from miscellaneous chapters, and covering a wide array of topics (theology, fiqh, tafsir, sirah, history, and more).

It is one of my all-time favorite classes to teach for AlMaghrib, and the student reviews show it’s a favorite of theirs as well.

In this episode of Lives of the Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr Yasir Qadhi covers Part 2 of the life of the great warrior and commander, Khalid Ibn Al Waleed[R]. He converted to Islam eight years after the Hijrah, twenty one years after the beginning of Islam itself. Khalid Ibn Al Waleed was known to have light skin, very similar looking to Umar Ibn-Al-Khattab, broad shoulders, very big beard & muscular,so much so that they say that Khalid and Umar were sometimes confused for one another at a distance. Now The Banu Makhzum, which is his tribe, were known for being the most well trained in the arts of war. They prided themselves on their elite training and they typically had the best weapons, relating back to the money they had. So Khalid grew up being trained by the same people that trained his tribe. He learnt how to ride horses, using bows and arrows and so on.

During the time of the Khulafa Ar-Rashidoon, Abu Bakr As-Siddiq was in charge and the battle and of the wars of Riddah began to take place. Abu Bakr As-Siddiq assigned Khalid Ibn Al Waleed[R] to take charge of the largest insurrections against the Muslim empire at the time. He was known as the primary General throughout the war. There was one incident that occurred during that time, that perhaps might be the most controversial incident in the life of Khalid Ibn Al Waleed[R].

The Prophet (salla Allah alayhi wa sallam) said, “Acting thoughtfully is from Allah, and acting hastily is from Shayṭān” [Reported by al-Tirmidhī and others, and it is ḥasan].

Next time you are faced with a decision, do not act in haste. Making a rushed decision, especially when one is angry or emotional, hardly ever results in wise results.

Think matters through. If need be, pray istikhara, and ask advice from others whom you trust.

Acting thoughtfully is from Allah, and acing in haste is from Shayṭān.

This happened in my home state of Tennessee: a teacher forcibly removes a Muslim girl’s hijab, and allows other students to play with her hair, while the girl hides her face in shame.
Other students snapchat the whole episode.

Thankfully, in this case, the teacher was immediately suspended.

Muslims! Be vigilant and report ANY harassment to authorities immediately.

In this Episode of Lives of the Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr Yasir Qadhi covers the life of the great warrior and commander, Khalid Ibn Al Waleed[R]. He converted to Islam eight years after the Hijrah, twenty one years after the beginning of Islam itself. Khalid is the son of Al-Waleed Ibn Mughirah, one of the most famous people in Makkah, at the time of early Islam. He is famous for multiple reasons, of them is that he was the Chieftain of one of the most prestigious tribes of the Quraysh, The Banu Makhzum. He was also the richest philanthropist of Makkah, as well as the official poet the of Makkah. Not only was he rich, but also famous and beloved!

Khalid Ibn Al Waleed was known to have light skin, very similar looking to Umar Ibn-Al-Khataab, broad shoulders, very big beard & muscular,so much so that they say that Khalid and Umar were sometimes confused for one another at a distance. Now The Banu Makhzum, which is his tribe, were known for being the most well trained in the arts of war.

This is what institutionalized racism looks like.

A journalist sees absolutely no contradiction in posting these two tweets, just a few days apart, and in fact DEFENDS that he is doing the right thing. In the one case, when a Muslim is involved, everything is about politics: banning immigrants, extra surveillance, extreme vetting, increased security, hostile legislation. And in the other, when a white shooter goes berserk, absolute and total silence.

It is astonishing how blind people are to their own biases. And while it does get tiring for us Muslims to constantly point out these double-standards, I feel that it is a necessary part of what we need to do to educate the broader society as to the reality of what is going on.

It is a tough and painstakingly slow job. It is highly frustrating and extremely repetitive. But this is one matter that we do need to do, with diligence and patience, in order to open the eyes of those who might sincerely still believe the narrative that is fed to them and have an open mind.

Please retweet and share this with your friends, and ask them, in your own words, to try to understand how frustrating it is when all of us have to suffer for the crimes of one of ‘our’ own, yet no one of them will ever have to pay any price for the crimes of their own.


In this episode of Lives of The Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr Yasir Qadhi covers the life of Sa’eed Ibn Zayd, one of the ten that was promised Jannah(Paradise).To begin with, one of the most intriguing and influential character of Pre-Islam, was indeed his father, Zayd Ibn Amr Ibn Nufayl. Zayd was one of the most famous Hunafaa before the coming of Islam, a small group of Quraysh who rejected the Idolatry of the society. They chose to worship Allah(SWT) instead.

Sa’eed Ibn Zayd was from the earliest group of converts. Ibn Ishaaq states that he was part of a group that converted right after Abu Bakr As-Siddiq’s group. Sa’eed converted to Islam when he was approximately between 14-15 years old. In fact, he was already married at the time because everyone would be married young back then. His wife was Fatimah Bint-Al-Khataab, the younger sister of Umar Ibn-Al-Khataab. She was indeed one of the earliest female converts, probably the first convert after Khadijah. Sa’eed came running home and informed his wife, Fatimah about the religion of Islam, therefore she decided to convert and become a Muslim.

In this episode of Lives of The Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr Yasir Qadhi covers the life of Abu Ubaidah Amer-Ibn-Al-Jarrah, one of ten who was promised Paradise(Ashara Mubashara). He was originally from the furthest tribe from the Banu Haashim, and that is the tribe of Banu Harith Ibn-Fihr. His actual name is Amer Ibn Abdillah-Ibn-Al-Jarrah, interestingly enough. he is never called by that name. The main reason for one to skip their father’s name, is that the grandfather could be very famous, therefore the grandson just ascribes to his name. In this particular case, we are unsure of the reason behind.

Abu Ubaidah Amer-Ibn-Al-Jarrah was indeed part of the first group of converts that converted in the hands of the Prophet(S), he was not of those who converted in the hands of Abu Bakr As-Siddiq . Some sources state that he converted the next day, others say within 2-3 days. All of the ten promised Paradise, they are participated in each and every expedition, and Abu Ubaidah is no exception. One of the incidents narrated about him brings around some controversy.

In this episode of Lives of the Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr Yasir Qadhi covers the life of Saad Ibn Abi Waqqas, one of the ten that was promised Paradise(Ashara Mubashara). He was from the small tribe of Banu-Zuhra, along with AbdurRahman Ibn Awf. Banu-Zuhra was the tribe of Amina Bint-Wahab, the mother of the Prophet(S).

Saad Ibn Abi Waqqas was born 17 years prior to the preaching of Islam. He has been described as being short & stocky, not a very strong build, dark complexion, flat nose along with curly hair. He was not known for his looks or physical strength, nonetheless he was known for his intelligence, and especially known for his eyesight, how good his eyesight was. That is why he was well known out of all the Sahabas, Saad Ibn Abi Waqqas had the reputation of being the best marksman, the one who can shoot a bow and arrow and hit the target. Therefore he was the best of the Sahabas in this regard.

Saad Ibn Abi Waqqas was 17 years old when the Da’wah of Islam began. Indeed he was the seventh of the ten Sahabas to convert to Islam, also from the five that converted in the hands of Abu Bakr As-Siddiq. It is also mentioned that when he converted to Islam, he did not even have any facial hair on his face.

In this episode of Lives of The Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr Yasir Qadhi covers the life of AbdurRahman Ibn Awf, one of the ten that was promised Jannah(Ashara Mubashara) He was originally from the tribe of ‘Banu-Zuhra’, which is the same tribe as Amina Bint-Wahab. In addition, AbdurRahman Ibn Awf was actually a distant cousin of Amina.

From the ten that was promised Jannah, five of them converted to Islam in the hands of Abu Bakr As-Siddiq. Ibn Hajar mentions one of the reasons of his conversion, that Abdur Rahman was a traitor. He would travel to Yemen regularly and he would be hosted by one of the elders from the tribe in Yemen.It is mentioned that the year the Prophet(S) started preaching, his host was a very old man who asked him about Makkah. He also told him that Allah would send a Prophet in his own tribe who will have a revelation from Allah, that will preach against Idolatry. So when he returned he met AbU Bakr As-Siddiq and was told that the Prophet has indeed been sent, so he immediately converted.

Abdur Rahman’s original name was indeed Abdil-’Ka’aba. So when he accepted Islam, the Prophet(S) advised him that his name should be changed to AbdurRahman. So AbdurRahman is the prophetic name that was given to him. He was described as fairly light skinned ,tall with a slender neck with long eyelashes. As well as a good amount of hair that he would tie in a knot at the back of his head. At that time, tying it in a masculine knot was the style of the Arabs.

In this episode of Lives of The Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr Yasir Qadhi covers the life of Az Zubayr Ibn Al Awwam, the sixth companion from the ten that was promised Paradise(Ashara Mubashara)

The Shaykh starts off by explaining the lineage of Az Zubayr Ibn Al Awwam. Indeed he was related to the Prophet(S) from multiple ways. First & foremost, from his father’s side, he links with the Prophet(S) from the fifth generation. Moreover, both him and Uthman was from this generation. From his mother’s’ side, he is one of the closest to the Prophet(S). Even though his father is “Al-A’waam”, his mother is Safiyyah, the daughter of Abdul Muttalib, also the aunt of the Prophet(S). So Zubayr is uniquely the first cousin of Prophet Muhammad(S).

In this episode of Lives of The Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr Yasir Qadhi covers the life of Talha Ibn Ubaydullah, who is one of the ten ‘Ashara Mubashara’ (10 Promised Paradise). He starts off with an explanation of the concept of ‘Ashara Mubashara’ and the evidence behind it.

Talha Ibn has received multiple blessings from Allah(SWT). Firstly, he is from the ten that has been promised paradise. Secondly, he is of the first ten to convert to Islam, he was in fact the eight person to convert. Thirdly, he is one of the famous five who converted at the hands of Abu Bakr As Siddiq. So Allah(SWT) blessed Abu Bakr to bring five of the best Sahabas of the Prophet(S) to Islam, and Talha was one of them.

It was mentioned in a Hadith that one day, people were suffering from hunger due to a severe drought, Talah was so generous that he slaughtered a camel when they most needed it. During that time, camels were so precious and wouldn’t be slaughtered unless for a very special occasion. He in fact dug a well to find water for the Prophet(S), and then invited him for a feast as they were hungry during that time. So the Prophet(S) said to him: “Talha Al-Fayyad” (Talha, the one who is overflowing with generosity) This was then one of his nicknames, and during his life, we will see how generous of a person he indeed was.

Some of the greatest and most blessed human beings to ever live after the death of Prophet Muhammad [S], were indeed the Sahabas. In this series, Shaykh Dr Yasir discusses their lives.

While it is not a comprehensive history of the Khulafa Ar-Rashidoon, this series will provide a summarized biography of the men and women considered to be the Sahaba (Companions of the Prophet [S]), including the Mothers of the Believers (The Wives of The Prophet).

As for the comprehensive and controversial details of this era, Shaykh Dr Yasir shares the opinion of Imam Ahmad who once said “That was a time when Allah (SWT) had saved us from participating with our hands, so why don’t we save ourselves from participating with our tongues.”

We begin this journey with none other than Abu Bakr As-Siddiq [R], the greatest of all of the Sahaba [R].

The full name of Abu Bakr was Abdullah Ibn Uthman. He was from the sub tribe of Quraysh, known as Banu Taym. “Abu Bakr” was a nickname (Lakab) given by his father. Bakr stands for a young energetic camel and “the one who has and controls such camels, is wealthy, etc.” His father’s nickname was Abu Quhafa (Actual Name: Uthman), who accepted Islam at the conquest of Makkah. Abu Bakr [R] had cried and made the famous statement “I wish Abu Talib was here instead of my own father” showing his love for the Prophet [S].
