The Gift of Feeling at Home

9 March 2011 1,302 views No Comment

The last class entitled The Last Breath offered by Al Maghrib Institute was a very great experience for me. First, the fact that I was surrounded by very dedicated students of knowledge and a very knowledgeable scholar mashAllah made me feel at home.  I felt like the classroom was meant to be my real home and the people around me were my real brothers and sisters. I did not want the seminar to end because of the comfort, inner peace and tranquility I felt in that atmosphere. I had never in my whole life seen so many people following the Quran and the Sunnah only. I was impressed to see people from all ages, professions and color come together not for any other purpose than to be close to their Creator. I was also impressed with how well organized and professional the qabeelat was. May Allah bless the team. The name of the qabeelat is just beautiful to me.
Since I took the class, I know the meaning of the janaza prayer and the reward for attending one. I used not to take medicine when I was sick because I told myself that whatever Allah has decreed it will happen. But I learned in the course that taking medicine is part of your qadr. I never knew what rukya was but now I know. I also know the intricate details of how the grave should be and that the dead body needs to be washed in a special manner and that we still need to lower our gaze even before a dead body. I did know that we needed to treat the dead body as if it was still alive. I loved the class so much and the team effort of the qabeelat.
