Following Hadith taken from "Gardens of the Righteous" : The Holy Prophet (Saws) related: An individual from a people before you having killed as many as 99 people inquired who was the most learned person on earth.  He was directed to a monk.  He went to the monk and said: I have killed 99 people.  Is there any chance of repentance left for me?

11 Jul Friday Sermon: Ramadhan and The Holy Quran: The source of guidance and salvation

Huzoor based today’s Friday sermon on the significance and excellence of the Holy Qur’an. Huzoor started by reciting the following Quranic verse: ‘The month of Ramadan is that in which the Qur’an was sent down as a guidance for mankind with clear proofs of guidance and discrimination. Therefore, whosoever of you is present at home in this month, let him fast therein. But whoso is sick or is on a journey, shall fast the same number of other days.
