The Dunya Means Nothing to Allah, But Your Heart Means Everything! – Ayden Zayn


Wealth, fame and worldly “success” can be a trap for us believers. The sad reality is that the lure and temptation of the dunya (material world) consumes many Muslims. This brief khutbah is a moving reminder to be on guard against this, and to remember that Allah values a sound heart more than anything else!

Ayden Zayn is a White-American convert to Islam. Born into a non-practicing Jewish family, he was raised with an open mind to God and religion. At the age of 19 he was introduced to the Qur’an and the Islamic teachings. Over a period of three months, his fascination and curiosity compelled him to analyze deeper and compare his family’s “religion” to Islam, as well as other major faiths like Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism. And on December 16, 1991 he made the decision to embrace Islam.
