Firm faith and practicing Islamic teachings bring glory to Muslims


Sheikh Osama Bin Abdullah Khayyat, Imam and Khateeb of the Holy Haram
in Makkah, urged Muslims to fear Allah as our pious Salaf used to
fear Him. By following this path, a Muslim keeps himself away from

In his Friday sermon (Khutba) of 11-1-2002 at the Holy Haram in
Makkah, Sheikh Khayyat attributed the weakness and helplessness of a
man to his weak belief in the Islamic creed and not practicing the
Prophet's Sunnah. He said in this situation fear for property and

virtues of Islam is its healing treatment for this weakness so that
man does not fall prey to these fears, and weak faith and trust in
Allah. He said that Allah has reassured His servants that it is only

Sheikh AI-Hudhaifi said that the Muslim Ummah passed through even
severer tribulations and calamities, but by being sincere to Allah,
doing good deeds diligently and repenting to Him  sincerely they were
able to come out of these ordeals. He emphasized that Allah destroyed
the people of Thamud for killing the she-camel and the Children of
Israel for mischief on the earth. He called for sincere repentance.
He said that no catastrophe has befallen a people except for their
sins, and no tribulations are lifted except through sincere

The Sheikh called upon Muslims to unify their ranks before the winds
of change that are blowing over the Muslim world with the objective
of harming and influencing our Shariah, values, morals, well-
established principles, approaches and curricula. He emphasized that
they should stand as one man abiding by the correct creed (Aqeedah).

At the end of his Khutba, Sheikh Al-Hudhaifi prayed for the glory of
