This website is dedicated to Shaykh Murtaza Ahmed Lakha. He practised as a Barrister-at-Law for over 40 years and was also very learned in Islamic studies. Despite his significant professional success, his greatest occupation was service to Islam. He was blessed with inspiring oratory and he combined his persuasive eloquence with humility – a trait that endeared him to people from all walks of life and of all ages. His propagation of the message of truth, peace and justice was facilitated by a considerable reservoir of knowledge and skill as a linguist, speaking six languages fluently: Gujarati, English, Swahili, Urdu, Arabic and Farsi. He was totally devoted to spreading the message of the Holy Qurʾān and the Ahlulbayt (as) and spoke on a wide range of subjects all over the world.
For the benefit of the worldwide community, this website provides a convenient resource of approximately 200 of his lectures spanning Islamic history, theology and spirituality. In addition, there are also freely downloadable PDF files of his entire translation from Farsi and Arabic into English of Mafātīḥ Al-Jinān (The Keys of The Heavens), as well as the companion book Al-Bāqīyāt Al-Ṣāliḥāt (The Everlasting Good Deeds).
Please recite Sūrat al-Fātiḥa for the benefit of his soul and all marḥumīn.
