Sh. Faraz Rabbani's Khutbah

Shaykh Faraz Rabbani gave a beautiful khutbah at ICOI in Irvine today. His main point being that our goal in life should not just be to increase our own love for Allah (swt), but to have Him [increase his] love for us. But to have Allah (swt) love us, which is the greatest of goals, we must perfect our servitude to Him, and this is only through following the way of the Prophet (saw). To be like the Prophet (saw) we should practice on these points--and we should dedicate our Ramadan to implementing them:

1. To fulfill the rights of others
2. To not wrong others
3. To be of a cheerful and positive disposition
4. If someone does good to you, then do better to them (first we need to acknowledge and thank the good from others before returning their good with better)
5. If someone wrongs you, then return it with good.

If we can practice on these principles in Ramadan, then insha'Allah we can establish our whole lives on the perfect example of the Prophet (saw) who was sent to perfect good character and was sent as a Mercy to all of mankind.

Tawfiq, insha'Allah!
