Dremali Foundation

Written by Dr. Ibrahim Dremali



Assalamu Alaikum my dear brothers and sisters,
The above Ayah from Surat al-Hujurat explains to us who ALLAH SWT
honors most. Imagine that through having Taqwa, we can be recognized
by Allah SWT as one of the noble and honored ones. This type of honor
radiates not only as light and nobility, but as love and beauty in front of
Allah. How fullling it is to know that our strive, our fear, our good deeds,
and our obedience to HIM in secret and in public can earn us a status as
great as this. Now imagine, that WE, as an entire UMMAH, unite with this
same common goal: to strive for Him, to fear Him, to do good for Him, and
to obey Him the way He told us to. Imagine what kind of status that our
UMMAH will have? Surely we would be an honored and beautiful Ummah.
Surat al-Hujurat is a very special Surah, and outlines various ways for us to
achieve this status. I will write briey about some of these points, or
foundations for a strong Ummah. By correcting ourselves rst, by having
Taqwa in everything that we do, will we then be a strong and noble nation.
If each person works hard on applying these foundations, the communities
will start to strengthen and then our entire UMMAH will shine with honor
and beauty. I have a strong vision and a lot of faith that we can achieve
this together. Let us be that honored and beautiful UMMAH, who UNITES
under the banner of La ilaha illah Allah. Let us be the UMMAH that strives
to be the most beautiful in front of Allah. This is our UMMAH, the UMMAH
of Prophet Mohammed (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam), and the UMMAH that
Allah SWT praises when HE says You are the best nation created for mankind.
Together, lets strive to live up to this high and honorable status.

Allah is speaking to US when He says O you
who BELIEVE. We should pay extra special
attention when He address the believers.
Through the Prophet, ALLAH SWT has given us
guidelines and taught us everything we need
to know in order to worship Him in the best
way.
Allah perfected and completed our religion of
Islam and Prophet Mohammed is the best
example for us to follow. There is nothing we
can do or say that will ever improve their
words. Are we submitting ourselves to this
fact? Is all of our Ibadah in accordance with
Quran and Sunnah, or are we following our
own desires?

O you who believe! Do not put yourselves forward
before Allah and His Messenger, and fear Allah.
Verily, Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing! (49:1)
Both the Quran and Sunnah are a done deal and you cannot add
to it, take away from it, or change it in the least way.

O you who believe! Raise not your voices above the
voice of the Prophet, nor speak loud to him in speech
as you speak loud to one another, lest your deeds may
become fruitless while you perceive not. (49:2)
How can we raise our voices above the voice of
the Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam), if he is
no longer alive? How do we apply this Ayah in
our lives today?
The Prophets (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) voice remains with us
through his words, his advice and through his actions. His voice
is with us now through his Sunnah, which he left for us so that
we may be guided. This is a special gift that should be
cherished, and we should not try to alter the Sunnah in any way.
Allah SWT orders us to obey Him and His messenger in all
matters. This command is a perfect command from Allah and is
good for all times and all circumstances.
Allah tells us that if we submit ourselves and
our actions to the Prophets words, that it is in
fact those hearts that have been tested for
TAQWA. SubhanAllah!
Sometimes cultural or other inuences nd
their way into our acts of Ibadah. We should
beware of this and be very careful not to fall
into habits and rituals that are not from the
Prophets traditions.
Verily! Those who lower their voices in the presence
of Allahs Messenger, they are the ones whose hearts
Allah has tested for TAQWA (piety). For them is
forgiveness and a great reward. (49:3)
If eorts are made to counter these habitual actions, with the
intention of wanting to gain TAQWA by obeying Allah and His
messenger, ALLAH SWT promises forgiveness and a great
reward!

We must be keen to protect and safeguard the
honor of a Muslim. Acts such as backbiting,
slandering and defaming are all diseases of the
heart and are destroying the Ummah.
O you who believe! Let not a group sco at another group,
it may be that the latter are better than the former; nor let
(some) women sco at other women, it may be that the
latter are better than the former, nor defame one another,
nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is it, to insult
ones brother after having Faith. And whoever does not
repent, then such are indeed wrong-doers. (49:11)
Dont fall into these dangerous acts, which only destroys your
good deeds, destroys the Ummah, and causes Allahs anger. A
Muslims honor is SACRED to ALLAH. He will wage war against
anyone who defames a close servant of His.
If someone wrongs you, leave it to Allah. Focus on your own
deeds. Guard your tongue, your Deen, and your Taqwa, and
InshaAllah your inner beauty will radiate as one of the most
honored servants of Allah SWT.
