In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
“Nothing is the life of this world but play and amusement, but best is the Home in the Hereafter, for those who are righteous, will you not then understand?” (6:32)

Remembrance Of Death

For almost 30 years it has been the practice of this servant to listen to the biographies, sayings or generally understood compilations of his elders in the gathering after the, 'Asr salaah. The reason fordoing so is that during this time besides the daily average of 30 to 40 visitors the local people also come. Hence, it is may heart's desire that some of the jewels of these elders fall on their ears which would benefit them in both the worlds. This servant does not know how to deliver lectures and does not desire to waste his time in futile talk.

It is not only good conviction, but rather, it is a reality that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta 'aala through His Bounty and Grace had given these elders a complete portion in following the Sunnah of Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Those who are well aware of the life, practices and sayings of Prophet (Sallullahu Alaihi Wasallam) and who participated in the gathering of these elders for a few days will themselves realise this fact. The sayings of these elders are pieces of jewels and their silence a means of internal (spiritual) progress.
