Ikhwan Muslimin


How many friends have you got, at the mention of whose name, you and other people would instantly say MashaAllah, MashaAllah he is such a good person. And when you are told he is leaving the country for good, your heart just sank and you felt a deep loss immediately. He is Azeem - a Naqshbandi brother, a Muslim revert, an Aussie. MashaAllah Tabarakallah. I am still speechless upon hearing the news, that he is leaving us behind.

I recalled fondly our group outings to Pulau Besar and Janda Baik. Conversations revolved around our experiences being in tariqa, how he had embraced Islam and his devotions to our gurus. Throughout the long journey and our casual chats, his most frequently used phrases were Bismillah, MashaAllah and InshaAllah. We never heard him say ok, ok dokie, allright, allrighty, no nothing of the sort!

Yesterday at a farewell luncheon hosted by a dervish friend of ours, the room was filled with extraordinary fragrant from nowhere! Subhanallah! His sweet scents shall remain with us, friends who are deeply touched by his presence.

May Allah, facilitate your hijrah or rather homecoming, and grant you the best of bounties that you so deserve! May we meet again, InshaAllah.
