PREFACE This booklet is the third part of my collection of speeches and writings from 2005 till the early 2007, entitled Khutab III. They were delivered at the ANUMA (Australian National University Muslim Association) as Friday sermons and as ordinary speeches on other occasions, at the Indonesian community gatherings at the Kartini hall at the Embassy of Indonesia in Canberra and other places on certain occasions. Some articles issued at Assalam bulletin published by the Australia Indonesia Muslim Foundation (AIMF) and sermons given at the Canberra Mosque on Friday 29 December 2006 and on the „Id al-Ad.h.á on the next day (Saturday 30 December 2006), are also included in this booklet. The abbreviations used in this booklet are: (1) s.a.w. (and . ) for s.allállāhu „alayhi wa sallam (and ) meaning “may Allah bless him and grant him salvation”, sometimes translated as “peace be upon him” (p.b.u.h.), an eulogy after the name of Prophet Muhammad, (2) a.s. (and . ( for „alayhis salām (and ) meaning “upon him be peace” usually used after the names of angels and prophets before Prophet Muhammad s.a.w., (3) r.a. (and . ) for rad.iyallāhu „anhu (and ( meaning “may Allah be please with him” usually used after the names of the s.ah.ābah (companions of the Prophet). It has been like an accident that before leaving a certain place I left a booklet behind. The booklet Khutab I (the collection of speeches and sermons at the Canadian Islamic Centre, al-Rashid Mosque) before leaving Edmonton (Canada) for Australia; Khutab II (the collection of sermons at the Canberra Islamic Centre) at Monash, ACT, before leaving for overseas (the longest and happiest travel I have ever made), and now the Khutab III before leaving for Indonesia and Malaysia in September 2007, in shā‟ Allāh (God willing). For those friends left behind and those who have contributed directly or indirectly to the completion of this booklet I sincerely appreciate their help, kindness and companionship; may Allah reward them for their kindness and compassion. In this edition the Arabic texts have been vowelised to help the readers who are not very familiar with Arabic language.

This booklet, like the booklets written before, is far from perfect. However, this is another attempt to introduce some Islamic teachings to the public. May Allah accept this humble contribution to Islam, and may He forgive any mistake in this booklet. Amin! Canberra, October, 2011

A. INTRODUCTION FOR THE KHUT.BAH This is an example for the introduction to the khut.bah as follows:

B. SOME EXAMPLES OF THE DU„Ā‟ (SUPPLICATION) AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE SECOND KHUTBAH Some examples of du„ā‟s and its meaning in the second khut.bah, as follows:

O Allah! Forgive the Muslims, males and females, the believers, males


vii

and females, the living among them as well as the dead! Verily, You are, O our Lord, the All-Hearing and Near, Who answer (our) prayers, and fulfil (our) needs, O the Lord of all creatures. “O Allah! Lighten the graves of the dead, O Allah, forgive the living and facilitate their affairs.”

‫أ‬ “O Allah! Forgive the repentant, forgive the sins of the sinners, heal the Sick among the Muslims, prescribe well-being, vitality, prosperity and guidance for us and for the entire community of Muhammad.” “O Lord! Forgive us as well as our parents and bestow on them Your mercy as they did bring us up when we were young.”

O Allah! Bring prosperity to our affairs in this world that is the preservation of our lives, and in the next world to which we shall return, and increase our good deeds in our lives, and make our death repose from evil.

O Allah! Show us the truth as truth, and guide to follow it, and show us the falsehood as falsehood, and guide us to avoid it. Our Lord! Bestow on us, our spouses and our offspring the comfort of our eyes and make us leaders of the pious.

O Allah! Make us love each other in Your Majesty and agree on Your sayings, and shade us with Your Throne on the day there will


viii

be no shade except its shade, and make us die asMuslims, and join us with pious people, and make our best deed its last one, and our best day the day we meet You.

Or Lord! Do not punish us if we forget or make a mistake. Our Lord! Do not lay on us such a burden as You placed on those before us. Our Lord! Do not lay on us a burden that which we have not the strength to bear! Forgive us, have mercy on us. You are our protector, help us against the unbelievers.(Q. 2:286)

(The prayer of Prophet Abraham, a.s.,

)

Our Lord! In You we have placed our trust, to You we turn in repentance and to You is our final goal. Our Lord! Do not make us a prey for those who disbelieve, and forgive us our Lord! You are the all-Mighty, the All-Wise. (Q. 60:4-5)

Our Lord! We have heard someone calling to the true faith saying „Believe in your Lord!â€&#x; So we believed. Our Lord! Forgive us our sins, remove from us evil deeds and make us die with the righteous. Our Lord! Give us what You have promised through Your messengers and save us from the shame on the Day of Resurrection; for You never break Your promise. (Q. 3:193) O Allah, unite the Muslims and assist them against their enemies. Our Lord! Give us the goodness, both in this world and in the Hereafter and save us from the torment of Hellfire. (Q. 2:201)
