Intensity & Tranquility

9 March 2011 1,015 views No Comment

The Last Breath was an intense class. It gave me insight on what the concept of death is. Sitting there, in my seat, chills ran through my body. I imagined myself six feet under, myself and my deeds. It made me realize that death will reach us all one day.  The side stories that were shared by the instructor were to be learned from and held precious.

Just being there with a bunch of other people that had the same view that you have was enough to make me remain steadfast, that they were there for a purpose while others may have spent that weekend partying in unIslamic settings and Allhamduallah we got to experience these seminars! The amphitheater was packed and that really touched me.  Allhamduallah, I was picked by Allah to be gathered in a beautiful seminar.

Taking the train as I review the book was a serene moment in my youth.  New York wouldn’t be New York if it weren’t for the seminars along with the other events that are taking place in Manhattan to Brooklyn. That is my getaway weekend. The Last Breath, a seminar taught by Ustaad Waleed Abdul Hakeem for AlMaghrib Institute was a blessing. I learned the process of washing a body to inheritance. The guideline in how to comfort someone is in his or her last moments. A moment for me that I’ll remember is when at the second week of the seminar Egypt had gained victory and I’m glad the instructor took the time to mention our brothers and sisters.
