Contentment, Reliance on Allah, and Pure Intention – Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad
Words of wisdom from Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad
“What Allah subhana wa ta’ala really wants is good intention: pure hearted, sincere honest people. And when we make that the basis on which we create relationships with others than we will succeed- not is his aqeedah absolutely identical to myself.”
“There is too much judgment of others and not enough judgment of ourselves. There is too much self-righteousness and not enough self-knowledge. And one way in which we can heal that, is to remember that people’s weakness in this age is very much understandable.”
“The message for us if we have ridda and serene acceptance and we don’t just panic and bang at the cell doors, screaming to be let out, complaining about our situation, that Allah in His extraordinary omnipotence and power can turn our situation over, so that from being in the depths of a prison, we become second in command of the most powerful state in the world- which was the position of Sayyiduna Yusuf alayhi-salam. That’s one of the messages of that story.”
