The most wonderful story that I ever heard…
The lecture was entitled “The Great Scholars of Our Time”.
However, the story isn’t centered around them, except that Shaikh Ibn Baaz (rahimahullah) was one of those involved in the process.
Why did I find this story so amazing? Because when 99% of us are confronted with such things (you’ll understand when you listen to the story), we think “What can we do?” and then we say “We’ll do dua for you”.
However, in this story, the hero (Brother Falah) didn’t say this. He TRIED to do SOMETHING though in his position he really couldn’t do anything. After this, Allah opened the doors to victory. This story just shows that we need to take the first step, no matter how small we think that step is.
No, I’m not telling you the story. You have to listen to it.
[Note: The lecture is in Arabic along with a live translation after it. The story starts at 4 mins 30 secs. The whole lecture is fabulous though.]
May Allah greatly reward Brother Falah, Shaikh Abu Bakr Al-Jazairy (rahimahullah), Shaikh Ibn Baaz (rahimahullah) and all those involved.
