Thinking the best

bismIllah Assalam alaykum Beloved Brothers and Sisters, When we were leaving the beautiful Zaouia of Sidi Cheikh Abdallah al Haddad in Fez in April of last year, and Sidi Cheikh too was going to travel away from the Zaouia for over a month, in his last talk before leaving, he gave his students advice. I was amazed at the advice, so simple yet so pr

He is too Generous to leave you thirsty

Should you not gain your wants, my soul, then be not grieved; But hasten to that banquet which your Lord’s bequeathed.

The Refreshment of the Eye – Qurrat al -‘ayn

Acting Upon Sūrat al-Fātihah

Sayyidī al-Ḥabīb `Umar bin Ḥafīẓ (may Allāh preserve him and benefit us by him) asks us if we are truly acting upon what is contained in Sūrat al-Fātiḥah. This is an extract from a lesson in Imam al-Muḥāsibī’s book, Ādāb al-Nufūs. The lesson took place in Dār al-Muṣṭafā on 12th Jumad al-Akhirah 1434 /22nd April 2013. How is your state in relation t
