Imâm Abdur-Rahman As Sa’adi رحمه الله attends the tea party

 

Down Memory Lane... children will remember you... even if years go by....!

The following is a summarized translation:

'If a person sees his daughters or his little ones playing with toys, he should sit with them sometimes...'

During the period this incident is related, Sheikh as-Sa'di رحمه الله was a major scholar, judge, Imâm and lecturer. One day, he was about to leave his home when he saw his young daughter and her friend sitting and playing with their toys. They had made up a skit as though they were in a room, pretending that some objects represented tea and coffee, playing as girls normally would do. When the Sheikh was about to leave his daughter's friend (the little girl) asked him: ‘Why don’t you visit us?’ He رحمه الله replied, ‘I will visit you, tomorrow, insha-Allaah.’

When he رحمه الله wanted to leave the house, he stood at the door and knocked on the door calling out his daughter’s friend by her name. She opened the door and said: ‘Please enter.’ So, he رحمه الله came and sat with them in the area they were playing. They sat and pretended to give him coffee and they spoke with him and told him about their toys, and then he stood up to leave.

When he stood up, his daughter said to him: ‘You have not been my guest.’ He رحمه الله replied: ‘Tomorrow I will be your guest.’ The next day he رحمه الله came and knocked on the door and called out his daughter by her name. She opened the door and said: ‘Please enter.’ He entered the room and sat with them conversing and being humourous. 

This DOES NOT take more than three or four minutes of a person's time. However, his daughter cheerfully narrates this incident (as an adult) in one of the books. This occurred once in her youth but it brought back tremendous gush of happiness for her....

The Believer Should Not Give Up…


In advising us on how we should be in terms of looking for the ease after the hardship Sheikh as Sa’adi explained the following:

O mankind, fear Allaah. Ponder upon the way that Allaah has ordained for things to be in His creation. Verily He is praised because of that, and we are ever thankful to Him for it.


Know that whatever affects you from hardship, than it is because of that which your hands have put forth, and yet Allaah over looks a lot of our bad deeds and shortcomings. You have to understand that these problems and issues that the people are going through, can only be removed by the one that is All Powerful over everything. The time will come that He replaces the hardship with its opposite (or ease). We know this because this is that which has been promised by The Truthful, The All Hearing and The All Seeing.
