Driving Islam Home to the World -- One Concept at a Time!

See Islam for all that Islam really is:

Peaceable! Positive! Simple! Sensible! Elegant! Civilized! Constructive! Hopeful! Contemporary! Pragmatic! Problem-Solving! Moderate! Modern! Balanced! Just! Fair! Compassionate! Truthful! Nice! Easy! Fun! Global! Divine! Authentic! Original! Free! (Dr. Pasha)

As Goes the Jum’ah Khutbah,
So Will Go the Ummah — The Islamic Nation [Quote – 709]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)


Jum’ah Khutbah is one of the most visible, and easily measurable, signs and indicators of the Islamic Nation‘s --Ummah‘s -- social-psychological-spiritual health and wellbeing. 

And an accurate barometer of its rise and fall.

For, as the Jum’ah Khutbah goes, so is the Nation of Islam -- the Ummat -- likely to go.

And so are specific individual Muslim communities -- in each time and place.

As a result, saving the Jum’ah Khutbah in each and every community from decay and degeneration is not a luxury. It is a dire and urgent necessity. 

Therefore, it is not a Fard Kifaayah to work to save the Jum’ah Khutbah, and to work to make it better in every conceivable and measurable way, it is a Fard Ayin

Meaning, it is the personal and individual responsibility -- Fard Ayin -- of every Muslim to work to make Jum’ah Khutbah the best it can be in each and every community.

And to work tirelessly to ensure that, in each and every community, the best Jum’ah Khutbah is delivered, by the best and the most capable people, in the best and most effective and eloquent language, and with the best and strongest content and style.

In other words, the bottomline is this:

Let Muslims in each and every community make the Jum’ah Khutbah rise from the dead -- 
from an empty ritual where it has now ended up in most places -- 
and Allah will breathe new life and vibrancy in this Ummat -- 
and in that community.

As surely as a downpour of rain from God Almighty 
makes the parched earth rise from the dead and produce 
the most lovely vegetables and fruits and flowers and grass.

Inna Dhaalika La-Muh-yil Mawutaa!

So indeed will God Almighty bring back to life
those that are dead!
