Bountiful meetings ~ Happy holidays


Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.

I now know that one of the best coffees are the ones served when you visit the much revered Imam of Ba'alwie Mosque in Singapore.

But of course one would get more than just great coffees and Allah knows better the unseen gifts the Imam could offer his visitors. Was gobsmacked when the imam presented us with two heavily loaded and beautifully wrapped boxes of Ajwa dates! [A contrast to the small gifts we brought for him].

Anyhow, pray we would be able to upload our interview with Habib Hassan bin Muhammad Al Attas soon InshaAllah. The habib kindly spoke about the history of the Ba'alwie mosque; his late father's role in setting up the mosque; how the Alawiyah and Al Attas Tariqa came about; and how he met a relative of Habib Nuh the Grand Saint and discovered the maqam of Habib Nuh's father in Penang.


Of course, we visited Maqam Habib Nuh too. And of course I prayed for some of you dear readers, people who think well of me although I am a sinner and a nobody, and yet sometimes some of you asked this faqir to make du'a, mashaAllah. You know who you are, of course, of course, of course!

Wassalamualaikum warahmatullah
