Khutba: Ihsaan

Ustaadh Rayaan gives a tremendous Khutba regarding the highest level of Islaam. Ihsaan! Ustaadh touches upon the Hadith of Jibril and talks about this 3rd, highest level of Islaam.

Acquiring the level of Ihsaan requires exerting oneself and remaining patient upon that exertion.

Ihsaan is precision. A quality of being excellent and being proficient in performing the deeds. We should all aim for this level to gain that special closeness to Allaah. That greater reward and love from Allaah.

Among The Means To Tasting The Sweetness of Imaan | Benefits from Shaykh ‘Ubayd al – Jaabiree and Imaam Ibn-ul Qayyim

Among The Means To Tasting The Sweetness of Imaan

Abbaas Bin Abdul Muttalib [radiyallaahu-anhu] said that he heard Allaah’s Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] saying:

 

ذَاقَ طَعْمَ الإيمَانِ مَنْ رَضِيَ بِالله رَبّا وَ باْلإِسْلاَمِ دِيناً و بِمُحَمّدٍ رسولا

 

“The one who pleased that Allah is his lord and Islam is his religion and  Muhammad is his messenger shall taste the sweetness of Imaan.”

 

The meaning of the Hadeeth is that he [or she] only seeks the [pleasure of] Allaah-The Most High [1].

 

He [or she] does not follow other than the path of Islaam and does not follow except that which is in agreement with Muhammad’s [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] Sharee’ah. [2]

 

There is no doubt that the sweetness of Eemaan becomes pure in the heart of one with these qualities and indeed he [or she] has [definitely] tasted its sweetness.[3]
