The Humbleness Of Ibn ‘Uthaymeen


Aymaan Ibn ‘Abdil-‘Azeez Abaanamee narrates:

“I recall once, I was walking with the shaykh (Ibn ‘Uthaymeen) heading towards Al- Masjid Al-Haraam, and everytime we passed by someone he would convey greetings (salaam) upon them; even the children.

He extended greetings to one child who recognised him, and who then gave the shaykh a miswaak (tooth stick). The shaykh accepted it, smiling with complete humility and a welcoming heart.”

[Quoted in Jewels Of Guidance, P. 135]

  1. subhan Allah one of the smaller signs of qiyamah is that greetings of peace will only be extended to specific people, hasn’t that day already come where people unfortunately give salaam only to those they know.

    we need to all refer back to the sunnah and strive to avoid causing events of the hour, in the context of the post, we should make it a point to greet those muslims that we know and those that we do not know
