The Golden Sword – NMJ Hall, Durban 6th May 2010

Alhamdulillah –

Alhamdulillah in every situation and at every time. It is impossible to give Him the praise He deserves as it is beyond us. He encompasses everything and nothing encompasses Him. The whole matter is in His hands and the outcome is only His, subhanahu wa ta’ala.

In His Mercy and Love He took a part of His praiseworthiness, named him Ahmad and made Himself known through His beloved and Best of His Creation. He, sallallahu alayhi wa sallim, in turn cannot be praised by us according to his due. We accept our limitation and are grateful to be a part of his Ummah, and ask Allah to bless him according to his place and rank in every time and every place, not forgetting his family and noble companions, and all who have followed in their footsteps until now.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

With Allah it is the only deen that is acceptable; that means it is the only road -Shari’ah- that leads to Him and the Garden in the Akhirah, the permanent destination. It is not a religion among religions; all religions are astray and do not lead to Allah or salvation.
