Corruption on the Earth

Friday sermon (jum'ah khutba) by Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad - Cambridge - 13 February 2009 - 29 mins 21 secs

Alhamdulilah, thanks to the hard work of the ladies and gentlemen of the Cambridge University Islamic Society and the speakers who kindly attended, we were lucky enough here to have many interesting and beneficial talks during the recent Experience Islam Week. You can see the whole programme and download many of the talks here. In this sermon, delivered during EIW, the sheikh reflects on the Qur'anic warning about the corruption of the earth caused by man's abuse of the blessings of creation. The practical implications of this are becoming distressingly evident in our own times, testament to the dimming of our perception of the signs (ayat) of which our entire environment consists. The sheikh discusses the deep love of the prophets' for all aspects of creation and how this relates to their sound understanding of mankind's true place within in it.

Assalamu aliakum,
I can really appreciate the thought and effort you have put into this site. It so beautifully complements the words of the Sheikh. May Allah reward you. I am a fan of the Sheikh, yet I only found this site by accident. Would it be useful to others, if the link was put on the Sheikh's Wiki page? I would do it myself, but do not know how to do so. In the meantime, I will be sending this link to my friends.

Many thanks for your kind comments. The CKETC team have been thinking of late over how best to publicise the site and disseminate the Shaykh's words; your comments are most appreciated. We'll look into the Wikipedia page insha-Allah.

If you - or any one else - have any other ideas about how to spread the word do let us know. Until then we will rely on your collective goodwill with passing the link onto your friends!

Best wishes and Salams

Assalamu alaikum,
I have very little knowledge of these things, but apparently, Forums are a way to spread the message. There are some very popular ones in the UK and USA. Leaving a message on them with a link is the way to go. If you put in some concentrated effort into doing this with say, 20-30 forums, that should be enough to raise awareness in enough people, who then forward the info on or place the link on their own blogs. After doing this, you should notice the impact within 3 months or so. Finally, you could do a grab on youtube and halaltube which would direct viewers to Cambridge Khutbahs.
