Sheikh Saad Al-Attas

The means of arrival to the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)

First session of three


The Birth of the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) was a joyous event for the worlds

Maybe there’s a mawlid of other creatures

We need to understand him inwardly and outwardly

There’s a wisdom there for those who want it

He (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is a gift to creation

Have we looked into his (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) character and said this is what we want to be like

Its doesn’t take a day but it’s the first step

If a person sees good in him (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him), he should try to follow

There’s only one door to Allah Subhanu wa ta’ala and thats through the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)

Why did he say not to prefer himself (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) over Yunis (upon him peace), because Yunis (upon him peace) was in the belly of the whale the lowest place and he (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) was in the highest - the miraj

Be like him (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) inwardly and outwardly

Do you know the difference between being a lover (muhib) and the loved (Mahbub)

Imam Haddad (may Allah show him mercy) welcomed two people to his gathering. One was a student who wasn’t bright, the other was jurist, Imam Haddad (may Allah show him mercy) welcomed the student more than the Jurist. The Jurist was puzzled at first and when they left, he thought that if I go first that he’ll show him the same warmth but he found the Imam, the same

It was sincerity that was the difference here

The love kicks in when the Sunna and Nawfil are done, as in the hadith

External signs are secondary to the internal signs

If we implement the love of the Messenger (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him), we will see a great human being

Tawkkul, Taqwa, Sabar (Reliance, fear and patience)

Junaid Al-Bagdadi (may Allah show him mercy) said, “The internal and external are the same.”

Imam Nawawi (may Allah him mercy) said, “The greatest act a man can do is to fear Allah.”

The place where we start is the heart, its not an easy business – to become beloved by Allah Subhanu wa ta’ala

When they saw his (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) face they knew he wasn’t a lair

We have to look at his (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) physical features

The Sunna is paramount now – especially now – this is why they have drawn us, they did not see him

Embody one aspect, which will lead onto another

No one can embody them all but they can constantly strive

See the scholars and ask them, how much remembrance they make

This lecture is an act of remembrance according Ibn Ata’llah (may Allah show him mercy) in the key to success
