Friday sermon (jum'ah khutba) by Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad - Cambridge - 27 November 2009 - 25 mins 08 secs
In this sermon, Sheikh Abdal Hakim examines the role of stories in the Holy Qur'an. On one level these can seem simply entertaining or even fanciful, but within the stories are contained deep and important truths. This sermon focuses in particular on the story of Sulayman/Solomon (peace be upon him), whose miracles and power over different aspects of creation - by the grant of Allah - seem almost incredible, but which point to fundamental aspects of the relationship between the outward and the inward.
