3 Sha'ban 1441AH Kutbah (March 27, 2020CE)

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

My dear brothers and sisters. This week we entered the month of Sha’ban, alhamdul’illah. It is a great gift that Allah (swt) has allowed us to again come to this time of the year. And soon, insha’allah we will enter the most blessed month of Ramadan. Sha’ban is a great opportunity for us to think about the things we need to from the past year and to look forward to and prepare for Ramadhan.

We see that every ayah in the Qur’an sharif is a sign from Allah (swt) about what direction to take in our lives.
