Thanks to Sa’Adah for allowing us to share these videos with you.
Born and raised in Liverpool, England, Shaykh Ibrahim Osi- Efa was blessed to have learnt from some very distinguished traditional scholars. Amongst some of whom he learnt from are Murabit al-Haj, al- Habib Umar bin Hafiz and Shayh Hassan al-Hindi. He studied for three years in Syria and Mauritania, followed by six blessed years in Tarim, Hadramaut. In Tarim, he had the opportunity to learn under the qualified hands of teachers such as Habib Kazim al- Saqqaf, al-Habib Ali al-Jifri and al-Shaikh Umar Husain al-Khatib.
In these compelling video recordings of his lecture, he speaks about the soul. He opened his lecture on how our souls determine the state of our beings in this world and in the hereafter. He spoke about the believing souls and the concept of souls in Islam. He also touched upon what happens to our souls in the hereafter and how do we take care of our souls in this world, to prepare ourselves for the hereafter. He elaborates on what happens to the souls after death, based on the Quran and narrated authentic Hadith. In the second video, he patiently answered queries from attendees of his talk about the journey of the soul after physical death, for the souls do not die.
In this third video, Shaykh Ibrahim gives a comprehensive and intense narration on what happens on the Day of Judgement as promised by our Lord. He gives examples of the signs of the last days and also what we should expect to happen, based on all the Quranic warnings and narrations from authentic Hadith with regards to the topic.
His videos are compelling and intense, yet informative. He engages the audience with stories which one can really relate to and for one to take lessons from.
