|Imam Masjidil Haram|
Solat Eidul Adha 1432H
Wishing all of you a blessed Eid. May Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala keep you and your family in His mercy and protect you from bala' and fitnah. May He grant you much joy and happiness.
The Imam at KLCC mosque where I attended this morning spoke about Prophet Ibrahim a.s. as a role model for all hujjaj. Towards the end of his khutbah he mentioned a du'a attributed to the Friend of Allah:
“O our Lord, in You alone we trust,
and to You alone we turn for help,
and to You is the final return."
Rabbana 'alaika tawakkalna
wa ilaika anabna
wa ilaikal masir
A du'a many of us are familiar with but it's most meaningful when the heart has become really tired and hopeless and only wants to turn for help from Him alone. And du'a becomes very meaningful when it's uttered with tears as did the Imam at Masjidil Haram when delivering the Eid Khutbah today.
WaSalamu 'alaykum warahmatullah,Yours sincerely
