Based on a seemingly trivial hadith in which Prophet Muhammad (P) said “Eat with your right hand”, this khutbah makes clear the profound position of the Prophet (P), the weightiness of his teachings, and the responsibility on those who claim to follow his message. Siraj Wahhaj’s “old school” fire and passion resurface in this brief sermon that gives believers hope for Paradise, but a great sacrifice must be made first. Imam Siraj challenges the audience to make that sacrifice and to “think different” from those who disbelieve. Follow him as he maps out the path to Paradise by revealing what this sacrifice is and inspiring you to make it without any excuse. (Duration: 24 min) Siraj Wahhaj, imam of Masjid Taqwa in New York, is well known among Muslims in North America as a dynamic, motivational speaker and tireless supporter of Islamic causes. He accepted Islam in 1969 and received training at Ummul Qura University in Makkah, becoming a national and international speaker on Islam. He is the former vice president of ISNA and has served on the Majlis Ash-Shura since 1987. He is a former member of ISNA’s Planning Committee and is also a member of the Board of Advisors for the American Muslim Council. He received high praises from the media and NYPD for initiating anti-drug patrols in Brooklyn, New York in 1988.
