Friday Khutba (Sermon) 1: Be A Farmer For Your Soul

Happy Friday! ┬áInner peace… in the Qur’an?

Afterthoughts: 1. Good farmers are also consistent. 2. This does not refer to just people who label themselves Muslim— it refers to everyone. God made a covenant with each community– grow your own soul by following that promise.

    Thank you for this, Hijabman. You’re always an inspiration to me. Whenever I come to you, I remember the Sermon on the Mount: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

    It’s awesome when I feel like I just stumbled upon something that I needed to hear, like a message being sent to be just at the right moment. I was speaking to a dear friend of mine (who hasn’t exactly established what he believes yet) just yesterday about the universe and God and he brought up the subject of inner peace. I’ll be sure to share this with him. Thank you!!
