Friday Khutba - 11th Shawwal 1435/2014

Asma-ul-Husna - Al-Mustafee [part 1] - It comes from the root word with the meaning clear or pure - Another meaning: preferential or selected -- the word al-istafa combines both of them: selecting or choosing the purest - Al-Mustafee is the one who chooses the purest - Allah selects certain people to carry out his work; and certain things above others. For example: -- He has selected the religion of Islam -- He has selected the prophets, and Prophet Muhammad specifically --- that is why he is called Mustafa - the purest of those who have been selected -- as well, the Ahlul Bayt are called al-mustafeen in various hadiths Commemoration of Yaum al-Gham - Destruction of shrines began with ibn Taymiyya's fatwa 750 years ago, revived by Abd al-Wahhab, who was then imprisoned - the extremist groups today are acting in the same way as the Wahhabis 200 years ago
