By Murtaza Khan. Islam has been completed and the doors of seeking nearness to Allah have been established. The Messenger of Allah warned his companions against this on many occasions yet it is easy to fall into the path of innovation and desire. The speaker explains what innovation is, its Shari'ah meaning, its types and its position in Islam. He discuses occasions where people innovated in the past and common practises today. He also explains the statement of Umar, may Allah be pleased with him: ‘this is a good innovation' and talks about the state of those who innovate, on the Day of Judgement
The subject of the jinn is one which is of interest to many people. Folk stories abound, and many superstitious practices have arisen in Muslim cultures with regard to protection against the jinn. Many myths surround the ideas of the evil eye and envy, and there are many strange notions surrounding illnesses such as epilepsy and mental illness, which are often thought of as being caused by the jinn.
The Importance of Knowledge
Allah has exalted man through knowledge and through it he becomes closer to Allah. The speaker discusses the necessity of knowledge and its types. He talks about the status and superiority of those who have knowledge and the importance of having the correct intention for seeking it.
An Introduction To The Companions
Allah chose Muhammad, peace be upon him, above all creation to convey His message, and He chose the people who were around His messenger to defend and spread the Deen, The companions were described by the Prophet as being the best of generations, thus it is a must for every Muslim to follow and emulate their ways. Abu Hasnayn explains the importance and virtues of the companions of the Prophet. These series of Khutbas (sermons) provide the listener with a great introduction to the lives of the four rightly guided khulafa: Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali, may Allah be pleased with them all. The lectures give an insight into the lives of these great men who led the Muslims of their time to victory by Allah's permission. What lessons can we derive from their lives? Listen and be amazed by their simplicity, sincerity and service to Islam.
Reality of Sufism
You must be aware that there are a number of destructive calls which have been established amongst the ranks of the Muslims and which have shaken and damaged the beliefs held in their hearts. They have polluted the pure Islamic 'aqeedah, and have grown by stages to reach such dangerous level that they have led to the splitting of the Muslims into sects. Lectured by Murtaza Khan.
Searching For A Spouse
At a time when marital harmony amongst the practising population is worsening and divorce is on the increase, Abu Hasnayn looks at some of the misconceptions and illnesses that exist within this community when choosing a spouse. He reflects upon certain problems that arise within marriages and offers pragmatic solutions. He also discusses the importance of marriage and the qualities to be sought in a spouse.Abu Hasnayn Murtaza Khan graduated from the International Islamic University, Islamabad in June 2001 with BA Honours in Usool-ud-Din and has been actively involved in the field of da'wah for many years.

Temptations Of The Dunya
By Murtaza Khan. In this awakening lecture the speaker brings home to the listeners the state of affairs of the Ummah of Muhammad, peace and blessing of Allah be upon him; Focussing on the great portion of Muslims who have taken to indulging in their desires and temptations, he hi-lights many of the common problems today. Also Allah, the Most High, has created man as a supreme and noble creature and has raised from amongst mankind, the Muslims as the best of people, yet due to imitating the disbelievers and by giving into desires have the Muslims become low. Concluding on a positive note, the speaker reminds the believing servants to try and change this state of affair with their hands, tongues or at least their hearts.
Who is this Shaytan that we are warned of being an open enemy to us? Murtaza Khan explains and provides descriptions about this devil who is made from smokeless fire from amongst the Jinn-kind. Shaytans’ pride and arrogance in obeying Allaah made him the rejected bound for the depths of Hell. Certainly, the Shaytan at all times is plotting and planning for our destruction. He has promised in a place where none other would promise to lead man astray and take mankind with him to the Hell-fire. He will flow through our veins like blood flows, and will whisper thoughts and ideas to take you away from achieving good, to committing the failure of evil deeds. The Shaytan is cunning; his whispers may even appear in a form disguised as good intentions, only to be destined for an evil end.
Seven Under The Shade Of Allah
It was reported from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are seven whom Allaah will shade with His shade on the day when there will be no shade except His: the just ruler; a young man who grows up worshipping his Lord; a man whose heart is attached to the mosque; two men who love one another for the sake of Allaah and meet and part on that basis; a man who is called by a woman of rank and beauty and says ‘I fear Allaah’; a man who gives in charity and conceals it to such an extent that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives; and a man who remembers Allaah when he is alone, and his eyes fill up.”
