    Remaining Firm on the Zikr of Allah Ta’ala

    Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned: Shaytaan abhors seeing a person making zikr because the Quraan Shareef terms zikr as the greatest thing.

This is explained in the next verse: صِرَاطَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ  “The path of those whom you have favoured” They have …

    Results are not in our Hands

    Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned: We should not stress and worry about our actions producing results.
