The Crown of the Arabs

Not easy to lose your Shaykh but it is our duty to carry his flag as the ṣaḥābah did for the Prophet (sas). When you see the turban you think of Mawlānā (q) and of the Prophet (sas). Khālid ibnu l-Walīd credited his victories to the three hairs of the Prophet’s beard that he carried in his turban.

The Biscuit Factory
Nov19 2016 English 25min

The Soul of the Religion

Mawlānā was like a university, teaching us to happily accept what comes from our Lord. He learned from his shaykh, who learned from his, and so on until the Prophet (sas). Being with him was like being in the presence of the Prophet (sas). He was Sulṭānu l-Awliyā’.
