I’ve tried to write about last night several times. But I keep finding myself utterly incapable of doing so. Everyone who attended seems to have similar sentiments. So I just want to thank everyone who shared in the evening with us. It was special only because of those who were present.

As we launch the first two of several projects in coordination with these two blessed families, let’s reflect on how we can honor their legacies further. Amb. Shabazz inspired me over the last few days in ways that I haven’t been for a while. The greatness of brother Malcolm pours through her words and presence.

All praises are due to Allah who gathered us for such a special event, and honored us with such a special task.

In this Episode of Lives of The Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi covers the family of Abdullah Ibn Abbas. We begin by discussing Al-A’bbas Ibn A’bdul Muttalib(R). So Al-A’bbas is one of the most famous Uncles of the Prophet(S). Out of three Uncles, He was part of the two that converted to Islam, along with Hamza(R). Hamza(R) unfortunately passed away in the battle of Uhud. Therefore, for the longest time, the only Uncle of the Prophet(S) that was Muslim was indeed Al-A’bbas.

Al-A’bbas Ibn A’bdul Muttalib(R) was older than the Prophet(S) by approximately two or three years. In the days of Jaahiliyah, each of the main tribes had a major responsibility when it comes to the Ka’aba and the pilgrimage. Al-A’bbas(R) had one of the most honorable responsibilities(Pre-Islam), and that is the responsibility of what is called, ‘The Siqayah’. It was to bring water for the pilgrims. It was considered to be the greatest honor, to help the people performing Hajj. In fact, it remained in the progeny of Al-A’bbas, as well as his children for another one hundred years.

In this Episode of Lives of The Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr Yasir covers the life Abdullah Ibn Abbas, but first mainly focusing on the term ‘Ahl Al-Bayt’. Abdullah Ibn Abbas had two important titles as a Sahaba. First, he was known to be the most famous scholar of the Sahaba when it comes to Qur’an, He was called the ‘Habr’ of the Ummah. The term ‘Habr’ was used to describe him as the scholar of the Ummah. Likewise he was also known as the one who could translate the Qur’an, not necessarily to a different language but instead translating the meaning of the Qur’an to the masses.

Abdullah Ibn Abbas represents one of the most famous ‘Ahl Al-Bayt’. Now the ‘Ah Al-Bayt is a very common Quranic term, also found in the Sunnah. Furthermore it is well known in the religion of Islam primarily because it has become a point of dispute between the two main groups of Islam. Allah(SWT) says in Surah Al Ahzab, Verse 33: “Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity [of sin], O people of the [Prophet’s] household, and to purify you with [extensive] purification”
Now regarding the family of the Prophet(S), does this mean that the family of the Prophet(S) is automatically a holy/sacred family?

I’d like to thank the Edmonton masjid administration and especially Imam Gulfraz for his heartwarming hospitality as always. I am traveling through London currently with family and decided to avail the opportunity to give khutbah here. I’m also really grateful for the prayers, questions and insightful conversations with the community after the prayer. May Allah protect this community. It’s the first place I gave khutbah in London when I first came here and it always feels like home.

Regards and prayers from myself and family London. Thank you.


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.

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!

Recently, many people have asked me how to cope when the people we seek inspiration from turn out to be flawed. The answer is simple.
Remember this: the light you receive from that teacher did not come *from* them. It came *through* them. The source of that light was, is, and will always remain in Allah. A broken mirror can still reflect light. And the break in the mirror does not take away from the Reality or illumination of the light.
My dear global family, I am cracked, as you are. Why? Because I am human, as you are. Please never attach any benefit I or other teachers give you, to our person. We are only tools. And like all machines, we are limited. In life, capacity, and virtue. Remember that all light belongs to Allah. If He wills, He allows us to be a tiny–albeit flawed–carrier of that light. But we are never, ever, the Source.

Deah, Yusor, and Razan are gone from this world but not forgotten. Though they’re no longer in the headlines, they remain heavy on their families hearts. Being with some of them last night was just like being with them last year. This is not something you get over. May Allah shower them with his mercy.

This is the Light house project which is Deah’s old home turned into a youth community center. #OurThreeWinners are still winning.

A personal request: my sister in law’s husband Mohammad, who is truly a brother to me, just lost his father Munir Issa in Jordan.

Mohammad’s mom passed away only a few years ago, and is buried next to my mom in Louisiana. His father passing away was sudden and devastating to him and the entire family. As he’s on his way to Jordan, please take a moment to pray for them.

May Allah have mercy on our uncle Munir, and reunite his family in Jannatul Firdaws. ameen
