Khutbat al Haajah (first part)
Innal hamdulillahi nahmaduhu wa nasta’eenu wa nastughfiruhu, wa na’uudhu billaahi min shuruuri anfusinaa wa sayi’aati a’maalinaa. Man yahdihil-laahu falaa muDilla lahu wa man yuDlil falaa haadiya lahu. Wa laa ilaha illa Allaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu wa anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rusuluhu (Salla allahu alaihi wa ala aalihi wa sahbihi was salaam).
English Meaning: All praise is due to Allah, we praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah the Most High from the evils of our own selves and from our wicked deeds. Whomever Allah guides cannot be misguided, and whomever Allah He leaves astray, cannot be guided. I testify that there is no true god worthy of being worshipped except Allah alone without any partner or associate, I further testify that Muhammad (salla allahu alaihi wa salaam) is His true slave and Messenger. May Allah salah and Salaam be also granted to the prophet's pure family and to all of his noble companions.
Amma Ba'd: (To Proceed)
What is the correct way of memorizing the Qur’aan and the Hadeeths?
As for memorizing the Qur’aan, then the people differ, from the people there are those that are able to memorize a page, and from them there are those that can memorize both sides of a page; and from them there are those that are not able to memorize except half a page or less (than that), so everyone according to their ability.
From the affairs that which aid in memorizing the Qur’aan are repetition, revision and standing in the night prayer with it (i.e. that which you have memorized) if you are able to perform the night prayer. For indeed Allaah, the One free from all imperfections and the Most High says:
Verily, the rising by night (for Tahajjud prayer) is very hard and most potent and good for governing (the soul), and most suitable for (understanding) the Word (of Allâh). [Soorah Al-Muzzammil 73:6]
And in some parts of the night (also) offer the Salât (prayer) with it (i.e. recite the Qur'an in the prayer), as an additional prayer (Tahajjud optional prayer Nawâfil) for you (O Muhammad sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). [Soorah Al-Isra 17:79]
Likewise taking from the Mashaykh and memorizing at their hands. If you do not find them, then I advise you to stick to the cassettes of the proficient reciters, those whom recite with a sound recitation, and not those who exaggerate as ‘Abdul Baasit does; rather, the recitation of just balanced sound reciters and not those that (recite in a manner) that was disliked by some of the Salaf.
As for the memorization of Hadeeth, then they are little easier if it is done without the Asaaneed (chains of narration), so it is possible that you memorize a Hadeeth in a day or two days or three days then act upon this hadeeth, for indeed this aids in making the Hadeeth firmly grounded, then studying with the brothers and lots of repetition.

Hadith Number One
Actions Depend Upon Their Intention On the authority of the chief of the believers, Abu Hafs ' Umar ibn Al-Khattab (radi allahu anhu), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (salla allahu alaihi wa salaam) saying: "The reward of actions depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. Thus, he whose migration was for Allah and His Messenger, his migration was for Allah and his Messenger, and he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take a women in marriage, his migration was for that which he migrated." (Related by Bukharee and Muslim)
Actions Depend Upon Their Intention
On the authority of the chief of the believers,
Abu Hafs ' Umar ibn Al-Khattab (radi allahu anhu), who said:
I heard the Messenger of Allah (salla allahu alaihi wa salaam) saying: "The reward of actions depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. Thus, he whose migration was for Allah and His Messenger, his migration was for Allah and his Messenger, and he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take a women in marriage, his migration was for that which he migrated." (Related by Bukharee and Muslim)
Also on the authority of Omar, who said : One day while we were sitting with the messenger of Allah there appeared before us a man whose clothes were exceedingly white and whose hair was exceedingly black; no signs of journeying were to be seen on him and none of us knew him.
He walked up and sat down by the prophet. Resting his knees against his and placing the palms of his hands on his thighs, he said:"O Muhammed, tell me about Islam". The messenger of Allah said: "Islam is to testify that there is no god but Allah and Muhammed is the messenger of Allah, to perform the prayers, to pay the zakat, to fast in Ramadhan, and to make the pilgrimage to the House if you are able to do so." He said:"You have spoken rightly", and we were amazed at him asking him and saying that he had spoken rightly.
He said: "Then tell me about eman ."He said:"It is to believe in Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers, and the Last Day, and to believe in divine destiny, both the good and the evil thereof." He said:"You have spoken rightly".
He said: " Then tell me about ehsan ." He said: "It is to worship Allah as though you are seeing Him, and while you see Him not yet truly He sees you".
He said: "Then tell me about the Hour". He said: "The one questioned about it knows no better than the questioner." He said: "Then tell me about its signs." He said: "That the slave-girl will give birth to her mistress and that you will see the barefooted, naked, destitute herdsman competing in constructing lofty buildings." Then he took himself off and I stayed for a time.
Then he said: "O Omar, do you know who the questioner was?" I said: "Allah and His messenger know best". He said: "He was Jebreel (Gabriel), who came to you to teach you your religion."
Hadith number in Sahih Muslim/10
On the authority of Abu Abdur Rahman`Abdullah ibn Umar ibn al-Khattab (radiAllahu ta`ala anhumma), who said:
"I heard the messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam) saying: "Islaam has been founded on five (pillars). To testify that none has the right to be worshipped in truth except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, to establish the prayer, to pay the Zakaat, to make the pilgrimage (Hajj) to the House (i.e. the Kabah in Makkah), and to fast in Ramadhaan.

Notes Taken from the lecture
1. Should be covered with her entire body, apart from what has been excluded by the shari'ah
2. That it (the clothing) should not be an adornment in an of itself. (The khimaar, Jilbaab, niqaab ect...)
3. The covering should be thick and not transparent. (Ex: Thin overgarments that in the light you can see the size of her bones.)
4. That the clothing should be light, loose, wide so it does not describe any part of the body. (The purpose is to prevent temptation)
5. The clothing should not be perfumed with bukhoor or fragrance. (The one who does this is an adultress/Prostitute) Listen for further details about lotions, soaps, and deodorants inshaAllah.
6. The clothing should not resemble the clothing of men. (Get rid of the boxer shorts ladies if you have them!)
7. The clothing of the women should not resemble or imitate the kaafir women
8. The clothing should not be of fame, and vanity.
The purpose for Jilbaab is not for zinaa (2nd type). For if it were for zinaa it would be defeating the purpose of covering your zinaa. Ex: If you have a Jilbaab that is decorative or attractive then you have defeated the purpose of Jilbaab. The Hijaab, when applied to the women means that it is a mind set! Jilbaab should not be thought of as apparell, it is a state of mind.
