Coming to Singapore, SG : Aug 29 - 31 & Sep 6 - 7.
Valley of the Seeker: Living with the Beautiful Names of Allah
Taught by Riad Ouarzazi
Take a Journey Towards Allah...
He is Allah, the Creator, the Shaper out of naught, the Fashioner. His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
It is Al-Ahad (The One) that fills the depravity of our bones with the sweetness of Eman. He fills these empty chests with live, beating hearts that believe Divine Relief is just a few steps into the distance.
In the night we cry out to Him:
Ya Allah, we ask you by all the Names belonging to You which You have named Yourself with, or You revealed in Your Book, or which You taught to any of Your creation, or which You have preserved in the knowledge of the Unseen with You...
As-Saboor (The Patient One) gives us hardships He knows we can shoulder. And we love Him more, though our hearts are sometimes heavy with grief, and our shoulders may slump from the weight of sadness.
Ask yourself: does every gust of wind that blows against your skin satiate your limbs with the desire to meet Al-Mughith (The Sustainer)? Or cause your eyes to close in imagination of how the breeze in Paradise would feel? How it would evaporate the lines of age and distress from your face...
Ya Allah, our Lord, we are in anguish because we replaced Your love in our hearts with the love of people and things, believing they would make us whole. But they disappointed our hearts and left them barren.
Ya Allah we ask you through Your Name by which if You are asked, You will not reject Your servant...
He gave us more difficulties, and we withstood them and stood taller, turning our faces towards His Light. We will wait for these moments, days, and years to pass until we meet our Rabb (The Nourisher), until we are able to rest in the brilliance of His everlasting Paradise.
Ya Wadood (The Loving One), allow us to enter it.
There is no better time than now to learn about your Creator!
