Personalities in Islam

Shaykh Hassan-Afandi al-Kahibi - a knower of the revealed and the concealed

To be entitled to fully estimate the meaning of such an outstanding personality as Shaykh Hassan-Afandi al-Kahibi, one should first exceed the latter in his knowledge.

Due to our scarce knowledge in comparison to that of the Shaykh and thus our unworthiness to write about him, we can merely mention some facts from his life in our striving to please Allah and His Messenger. In this article the least thing we can do is to tell about the great teachers and masters who nourished the knowledge and the character of Hassan-Afandi, to describe his spiritual legacy and to cite what the theologians of the past and the present used to say about the Shaykh.

 

The Story of Moses and The Guide

Source : Islamicity.com / 4 Mar 2013

One day, Moses delivered such an impressive sermon that all who heard it were deeply moved. Someone in the congregation asked: "O Messenger of Allah, is there another man on earth more learned than you?" Moses replied: "No!", believing so, as Allah had given him the power of miracles and honored him with the Torah.

However, Allah revealed to Moses that no man could know all there is to know, nor would one messenger alone be the custodian of all knowledge. There would always be another who knew what others did not. Moses asked Allah: "O Allah, where is this man? I would like to meet him and learn from him." He also asked for a sign to this person's identity.

Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) was the son of Abbas, an uncle of the noble Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). He was born just three years before the Hijrah.

Reminiscence of Said Afandi al-Chirkawi

The best of you are those who, when others see them, they are reminded of Allah - Hadith.

            The 28th of August in the year 2012. On that day many people cried. Old people cried, who were already over 90 years old, children and women cried, even strong young men cried, who would not have shown their tears, even if their parents had died. One of my friends told me that the father of someone he knows is still crying, and nobody can calm him. Another of my good friends said that his little niece and nephew cried like they would have had their father died.

 

Women companions of Prophet (pbuh): Asmaa bint Yazeed (ra), the women'€™s representative

By Adil Salahi / 2 Feb 2013 

A woman came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) when he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was sitting with a group of his men companions. She said: “Messenger of God , I am sent by a group of Muslim women and we all share the same view and have the same concern. Allah has sent you to both men and women. We believe in you and follow you. Yet we, women, have to stay at home. We are the object of men's desire and we bear their children. Nevertheless, men have privileges, such as the obligatory Friday prayer, attending funerals and going on jihad campaigns. When they leave for jihad, we look after their property and we rear their children. Messenger of God , do we have a share of reward for doing so?””
