Sh. Dr. Yasir Qadhi is someone that believes that one's life should be judged by more than just academic degrees and scholastic accomplishments. Friends and foe alike acknowledge that one of his main weaknesses is ice-cream, which he seems to enjoy with a rather sinister passion. The highlight of his day is twirling his little girl (a.k.a. "my little princess") round and round in the air and watching her squeal with joy. A few tid-bits from his mundane life: Sh. Yasir has a Bachelors in Hadith and a Masters in Theology from Islamic University of Madinah, and a PhD in Islamic Studies from Yale University. He is an instructor and Dean of Academic Affairs at AlMaghrib, and the Resident Scholar of the Memphis Islamic Center.

    Salam walaykum, can someone help me.

    What it the Author and book the Sheik mentions at about 17.22 into the video. It sounds like Ibn Quyyum but I cant quite hear the name of the book. A link to a bookshop would be even better.

    Jazak Allah Khayrun

    May Allah make us one of those who remember Allah all the time, who love Alah above and over everything else….and who get overwhelmed with tears when remembering Him in privacy. Ameen.

    Masha Allah, I was there at the masjid attending this khutbah during the recent friday prayers at the MCA (bay area). I sensed a majority of people were stunned and inspired by this khutbah, Masha Allah.

    Du’aa min Kitaabi was Sunnah by alQahtani – hadn’t seen that one before

    *GEM*~The amount of dhikr you do reflects the amount of eman in your heart.

    SubhanAllah….we need to have an eman check. Its just so easy to make dhikr i.e. in the car, in traffic, sitting standing, lying, walking, sleeping, before during and after specific actions etc and etc.
    Despite the effortless amount needed to make dhikr, the reward is IMMEASURABLE, yet we take the blessings of Allah for granted.

    JazakAllah khayra for this very practical khutbah!
