New DVD by Shaykh Abu Yusuf Riyadh Ul Haq now available on Darul Ishaat UK.
DVD 1: The Sage & Scholar of the Ummah:
Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Masud (R.A)
Abdullah ibn Masud (R.A) is regarded as one of the most learned companions and possessed immense knowledge of the Holy Qur'an. His zeal and enthusiasm for the religion of Allah was staggering. His attachment and love for the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) was such that he observed and learnt from the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) those things which others did not. For this reason, Allah blessed him with piercing insight and understanding of His religion. The Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) dearly loved him and expressed his love for him in the following words,' 'I am content and satisfied for my ummah with whatever Abdullah ibn Masud is content and satisfied with, and I disapprove for my ummah whatever Abdullah ibn Masud disapproves for my ummah.'
His noble character, thirst for knowledge, position with Allah as well as inspiring lessons from his noble life are beautifully explained within this speech.
DVD 2: The Mother of the Believers Series
The Mother of the Believers Series, In the Footsteps of the Mother of the Believers Aisha (R.A)
Aisha (R.A) was the most beloved wife to the Holy Prophet (pbuh) after the demise of Khadijah (R.A). Being the daughter of Abu Bakr (R.A) Allah bestowed upon her great insight, intelligence, eloquence and a sharp memory. She became the fourth most prolific narrator of hadeeth. Her knowledge of the Quran and hadeeth was so unique and amazing that companions such as Abu Musa Al-Ashari (R.A) would say, 'Never would a hadeeth become difficult for us except that we would find some knowledge of that hadeeth withAisha (R.A). This in itself dispels and eradicates the notion and myth that Islam discourages learning and scholarship for the women of this Ummah.
The noble character and standing before Allah and His Messenger (pbuh), of the learned lady Aisha (R.A) as well as her remarkable knowledge and insight are discussed in this speech. In addition, amazing lessons which we learn from this unique personality and Mother of the Believers are presented.
About Shaykh Abu Yusuf Riyadh ul Haq:
Shaykh Abu Yusuf Riyadh ul Haq was born in Gujarat, India in 1971. He came to the UK at the age of three, to join his father Moulana Muhammad Gora sahib who was serving as an Imam and religious leader for the Muslim community in Leicester, UK.
His father, himself renowned for his piety and learning, began his son's religious instruction at a very young age. By the age of ten the Shaykh had memorised the entire Quran, and also completed the study of a number of books in various Islamic topics. When he was thirteen he enrolled at Darul Uloom al Arabiyyah al Islamiyyah, Bury, UK, (the first and most prestigious Muslim seminary in the West) and graduated six years later, in early 1991. In Darul Uloom the Shaykh undertook an intensive study of many Islamic topics including Arabic, Quranic tafseer, hadeeth and fiqh under traditionally qualified scholars. His eminent and erudite teachers from whom he has ijazah in various Islamic sciences include Shaykh Yusuf Motala and the late Shaykh Islamul Haq. He also has ijazah in hadeeth from the late Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi and the famous Muhaddith, Shaykh Yunus of Saharanpur, India.
Until 2003 the Shaykh served as the honorary principal of Madinatul Uloom al Islamiyyah, Kidderminster, UK (a branch of Darul Uloom, Bury, UK) where he had also been head teacher since 1992. Since graduation he has selflessly devoted himself to the work of deen and remained actively involved in dawah and teaching. He has taught and commented on many classical Islamic works and has lectured extensively on a range of topics including Quranic tafseer, hadeeth, aqeedah and fiqh. He has also travelled widely teaching and lecturing in various countries in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and North America. Many of his inspirational sermons and lectures are recorded and are widely available. He has also authored two books, 'The Salah of a Believer in the Quran and Sunnah' and 'The Causes of Disunity'.
Shaykh's extensive knowledge, command of both Arabic and English, together with his natural ability and eloquence in conveying the words of Allah (swa) and His Rasul (pbuh) have moved the hearts of many and continue to do so.
