The Gifted Mercy – Shaykh Faid Mohammed Said

In this podcast Shaykh Faid Mohammed Said explains the different opportunities we have to attain the gifts of mercy that Allah Most High has provided us. Shaykh Faid begins by talking about the difficulties that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) and his family went through. However, through the difficulties we see a complete portrayal of mercy through the Prophet’s choices (peace and blessing be upon him). He explains that life is about choices, and that the best of choices is choosing to be somewhere Allah is remembered.

Shaykh Faid then mentions some of the virtues of the month of Sha’ban. It was from prophetic practice to fast most of the month of Sha’ban. The Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) informed us that Sha’ban is a month where out deeds are presented before Allah, and that he wanted his deeds to be presented while in a state of fasting.

Shaykh Faid goes on to discuss that among the signs of and accepted repentance, is being eager to perform acts of worship. A believer should never despair. Allah is happy when his servants repents. The Mercy of Allah covers over everything. A believer should be humble when asking Allah, this is from prophetic practice. A believer should be in a state of happiness while worshipping Allah. The purpose of worship is to purify oneself.
