Islamic Revivalism by Abdullah Hakim Quick

Although many Muslims throughout the world are in tribulation, there seems to be a simultaneous revival taking place within the ummah today. Abdullah Hakim Quick addresses this by first reviewing some of the great Islamic revival movements of the past. He then discusses ways in which today’s ummah can have similar success despite the calamities facing it. The key to this success, as the speaker asserts, is the protection of each individual heart. Shaitan takes certain steps to capitalize on the weakness of the Muslim by utilizing ten inroads to the heart such as envy, greed, anger and haste. If Shaitan is successful, the ummah will continue to be confused and divided and, in effect, the revival will never happen. This practical presentation raises awareness of these inroads so the believer can be on guard and have hope for winning the battle against Shaitan. An important talk about protecting the heart that can serve as a starting point for real unity and revival. Other topics discussed: excessive love of food and drink, fear of poverty, dislike for those who disagree with us, the mulazima system (studying under a sheikh), making pledges, why the ummah is in such tribulation today, Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahab and the four schools of thought, and making hijrah today.



Speaking Truth to Power and Standing Up Against Oppression Dr Yasir Qadhi

In this powerful and emotional talk, delivered in front of the largest annual gathering of Muslims in North America, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi shares his thoughts on the current state of Islamophobia in America, and the dismal situation in Muslim lands and how we should work together to speak out against oppression and injustice.

While Muslim lands all over the globe helplessly burn under tyrannical rule, with news reaching us every day of innocent women, children and men killed in attacks; and as American foreign policy continues to create extremist groups by invading Muslim lands to quench their everlasting thirst of oil; and while the media and the far-right continue to smear our faith and our Prophet...the time to be politically correct is long gone!

Muslims with inferiority complexes keep apologizing for actions committed by extremist groups in the name of Islam; yet they never criticize the political issues that cause such extremism in the first place. And while Muslims must and should criticize people who misinterpret Islam, we must move beyond mere 'criticism' and actually work for the betterment of the Ummah.
