Friday sermon (jum'ah khutba) by Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad - Cambridge - 24 July 2009 - 25 mins
In this sermon, the sheikh relates a hadith of the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) in which he said that 'Allah has prescribed ihsan (doing or causing beauty/good) upon all things', and related this to the slaughter of animals. The sermon continues with an explanation of the meaning of this hadith, and the significance of the juxtaposition of the performance of good or beautiful things with an act about which we often feel squeamish at best.
