  • Al hamdu-lilahi Rabil Alamin, May Allah continue to bestow His mercy and grace on Imam Suhaib Webb and the community of ISBCC, Insha-Allah, I would like for my family and I to visit the community someday.

    The khutbah series spiritual challenges gives a lot of food for thought. Al-hamdu-lilah, I pray to Allah that He gives me the determination that Imam Webb was speaking of to enrich my relationship with Allah and grant me the ability to strive hard to realize the light of iman in my heart!

    So, my message to Imam Webb and the community of ISBCC please keep up the good work, and may grant you taufiq to do so! As-Salaamu-Alaikum.

  • I was wondering, is there any transcriptoins available of this khutbah available?

  • Assalamualaikum,

    I would like to know if there’s an Arabic transcript of the doah that was mention by Imam Suhaib which is translated into “Oh Allah,I ask you to grant me rigour and determination and uprightness of this deen, and determination upon guidance, and I ask you to make me think for your nikmah, and perfect your worship, and I ask you for a sound heart and a truthful tongue, and I ask you for the best that you know for me, and I repent from you the sins that i done…” Shukran 🙂
