I got this poster from Masjid Aleem Siddique website.
Sheykh Hisham is here in Singapore. Usually I would be sooo hapi. This time, Im worried, I dont know if I can attend any of his talks or not.
Eventhough, I am not in the Naqshabandi Tariqat, I love the zikir of the Naqshabandis and I never fail to be in full concentration and admiration when Sheykh Hisham gives his talks when he is here.
Also I always wonder how does he twirl his 'Sarban' so neatly, it looks like layers and layers of soft silk white cloth being woven in a caccon like 'sarban' on his head..
I usually drag hubby to his talks and hubby will always remind me jokingly that we are Allawyns, we follow tariqat Allawiyah.. hehe, he's worried that his wife might take the Ba'it. Well, i dont see that in the near future and I wont have time to do the daily set of zikir and of course Tariqat Rasullulah suits me just fine. Im still struggling with keeping Ratib as a daily amalan.
and Not that Im saying joining Tariqat is wrong. If it makes you stronger in Iman, and you felt the calling, go ahead. I was just telling my friend that no tariqat is wrong as long as its within the lines of Ahli Sunnah Wal Jammah.
Tariqat Ahmadia Idrisiya is also 1 tariqat that Im attracted to, led by the Alim Ustaz Hasbi bin Hassan. They have their zikir sessions at Masjid Kassim on Sunday nights after Isyak and whenever Im there, i can feel the sense of safeness in the protection of Allah s.w.t.
I not sure if I can make it these time round for Sheykh Hisyam talk. Generally I end work at 6pm but by the time I clear work, pray asar and go through what they need me too ( extra work ) , its already 7pm. Actually, I might just try and leave at 6pm on Wed. I need this. I need to take a break from my depressing work stress.
To my cousins Tanti and Rei whose been there for me through this sad / scary / stressful times, only Allah s.w.t can reward you. To sis Inah, I really mean it when I say we should cry together and thanks for telling me "LA TAHZAN LA TAHZAN LA TAHZAN" with a sad smile. That smile means alot.
To some who dont care and say harsh words, all I can say is every good we do is rewarded and every bad we do is recorded in the books of Amalans. I cannot match your harshness. I dont have the strength to at this moment.
Its the weekends. Alhamdullilah, alhamdullilah , alhamdullilahirobil allamin.
I rarely get to treasure "AIF" days these days. but its still not to late to say :
"Innallàha wa malâikatahû yusallûna 'alan-nabiyy, yâ ayyuhalladhîna âmanû sallû alayhi wa sallimû taslîmâ. (Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him, and salute him with all respect.) 33:56
