بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
All praise and thanks are due to Allaah, we seek His Help and we seek His Forgiveness. We seek refuge in Him from the evil of our souls and the evil of our actions. Whomsoever Allaah guides then none can misguide him, and whomsoever Allaah misguides then none can guide him. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, the One Who has no partner and I bear witness that Muhammad (may Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is His servant and Messenger.
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالًا كَثِيرًا وَنِسَاءً ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ الَّذِي تَسَاءَلُونَ بِهِ وَالْأَرْحَامَ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقِيبًا
“O mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person, and from him He created his wife, and from them both He created many men and women and fear Allaah through Whom you demand your mutual rights, and do not cut the relations of the wombs (i.e. the ties of kinship.) Surely, Allaah is Ever an All-Watcher over you.” [Chapter 4: Verse 1]
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ
“O you who believe! Fear Allaah as He should be feared, and die not except as Muslims, having complete submission.” [Chapter 3: Verse 102]
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَقُولُوا قَوْلًا سَدِيدًا يُصْلِحْ لَكُمْ أَعْمَالَكُمْ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَمَن يُطِعِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ فَازَ فَوْزًا عَظِيمًا
“O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allaah and fear Him, and always speak the truth. He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whomsoever obeys Allaah and His Messenger, he has indeed achieved a great success. [Chapter 33: Verses 70-71]
Then to proceed: Verily the most truthful of speech is the Word of Allaah and the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad (may Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon him), and the worst of affairs are the newly invented matters in the Religion and every newly invented matter is an innovation and every innovation is a going astray and every going astray is in the Fire.
Then this website is a collection of the translations of myself, Sa`ad bin Dawud Burbank, dedicated to my parents – rahimahumullaah – whom I bade farewell to with a heavy heart upon their passing; and wished that I had not fallen as short regarding.
May Allaah shower His mercy upon them both abundantly and enter them into Paradise for eternity; verily He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. And may He cause this humble effort of mine to be a source of continuous reward for them both. Aameen.
