Supporting a Masjid: A Communal Obligation

An excerpt from the a khutbah by Abul-'Abbaas Moosaa Richardson encouraging the Muslims to be vigilant in supporting their local masjid, being active in helping, using one's wealth and supporting the spread of Islaam. He also cautions the listeners against speaking out against the leadership of the masaajid, their financial affairs and questioning the worthiness of their positions. The evil and fitnah of these actions and how the Shaytaan intensifies in his efforts to separate the people as the community grows in size. The speaker cautions the listeners to record the statements of those who whisper doubts in to the community, to hold them accountable, to verify their claims and to admonish them for their rumour-mongering. An important reminder for every community - to busy ourselves with good and to leave of useless banter and ill-speech.
