Caliph Umar’s peaceful entry to Jerusalem 14 centuries ago

During the period of the Second Caliph Umar Ibn al-Khattab, the Muslim forces, under the command of Abu Ubaydah, lay siege to Jerusalem after capturing Damascus in the Battle of Yarmuk. The Patriarch of the city, Sophronius, stated that he would negotiate only with Caliph Umar and that nobody enters Jerusalem before Caliph Umar. On hearing this Caliph Umar informed that he was on his way.

Accompanied by a servant, Caliph Umar rode on camelback to Jerusalem though he could have been accompanied by an entourage that could have made the ground tremble under the hooves of horses. He did so to show simplicity and ensure that Allah alone deserves all the glories.

On reaching Jerusalem, it was the servant’s turn to ride the camel and as a mark of respect and to ensure that the people see Caliph Umar, he wanted the Caliph to ride the camel. However Caliph Umar

Post Ramadaan Khutbah

Beloved people of Imaan! With the successful completion of Ramadan, we pray Insha'Allah that Almighty Allah Jallah Wa'ala in His Infinite Mercy and Bounty has accepted our fasting and our devotions, our good deeds, our Taubah, our Ibadah and our Zakat. The Glorious month of Ramadan should have induced in us a greater awareness of our purpose in life and a discipline and determination to work towards that purpose for the next eleven months - Insha'Allah; Ameen! We cannot and must not return to our old, careless and sluggish ways for the struggle within us has to be constantly developed and renewed as commanded by Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala Who informs us with words of Wisdom in verse 102 of Surah Al-I-Imran:

"O you who believe! Have Taqwa of Allah according
to His Right and die not save as Muslims."

Alal Muslimeena Jami'ah! During the blessed month of Ramadan, we were fasting during the day. We spent our nights in Ibadah. We were getting closer to Almighty Rabbul

True Essence of Eidul Fitr

In this day and age, many Muslims eagerly await the end of Ramadaan and the coming of Eid-ul-Fitr to gain their ‘freedom’ in order to go back to committing sin and disobeying Almighty Allah.
Many people start on the day of Eid itself and engage in shameful and reprehensible behaviour in the name of celebration. We should remember that celebration does not mean committing sin, but rather it involves remembering Allah Ta’ala and being grateful to Allah Ta’ala for showering His Mercy and Bounties upon us. Let us look at the true essence and significance of Eid-ul-Fitr, and the way in which those pious servants close to Almighty Allah celebrated Eid.

Eid is a day of celebration for Muslims, a day of happiness. On this day, Muslims perform two rakaats of prayer, meet one another, shake hands and embrace and give charity to the poor and needy.

Islam teaches protecting the poor, helping the helpless, and easing the pain and sufferings of orphans and the meek at every turn, and they should not be forgotten, especially on the day of Eid. That is why  Rasoolullah  (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) ordered us to pay the Sadqa-e-Fitr before performing the Eid Salaah so that Muslims remember their poor brothers on this occasion and include them in their happiness.

Eidul -Fitr - The Day of Reward

"Allaahu Akbar! Allaahu Akbar,

La Illaaha Illallahoo wallahoo Akbar

Allaahu Akbar Wallillahil hamd"

Wa Ba'd:

Alal Muslimeena Jami'ah! The word Eid signifies recurring happiness. The word “Fitr” has the basic meaning of beginning. From it is derived the word “Fitrah”  meaning nature and “Iftaar”  which means  the breaking of the fast. Eid-ul-Fitr is thus the festival of the breaking of the fast; a return to the normal or natural course of living and fulfilling the
