Shaykh Fath al-Mowsily relates, once I saw a young boy walking through the jungle. It appeared as if he was uttering some words. I greeted him with Salaam and he replied accordingly. I inquired, "Where are you going?" He retorted, "To the house of Allah (Makkah)." I further asked, "What are you reciting?" "The Qur'an" he replied. I remarked, "You are at a tender age, it is not an obligation that you are required to fulfill."

He said, "I have witnessed death approach people younger than me and therefore would like to prepare if death was to knock on my door." I astoundingly commented, "Your steps are small and your destination far." He responded, "My duty is to take the step and it remains the responsibility of Allah to take me to my destination." I continued to ask, "Where is your provision and conveyance (means of transport)." He replied, "My Yaqeen (belief) is my provision and my feet's are my conveyance." I explained, "I am asking you regarding bread and water."

He replied! "Oh Shaykh if someone invited you to his house, would it be appropriate to take your own food?" I exclaimed, "No!" "Similarly, My Lord has invited His servant to His house, it is only the weakness of your Yaqeen that makes us carry provisions. Despite this, do you think Allah will let me go to waste?" "Never" I replied. He then left. Sometime later I saw him in Makkah. He approached me and inquired, "Oh Shaykh are you still of weak belief?"

I have his cassettes on 'Dajjal', 'Gog Magog' (Yajuj and Majuj), 'Paradise', 'Hellfire' 'The Beast' (you know which one) and a few others.

He hardly breathes sometimes! He talk for about five minutes non-stop and thats what makes him so good. So much detail and evident knowledge. :)

Paradise is soo good mashallah. The way he describes it mashallah is beautiful, the way the quran describes it is beautiful mashallah. i didnt know we would all be the same height. subhanallah there is soo much still to learn!!

i think he talks non stop beacuse he gets so involved in it himself. mashallah its really beautiful because he has soo much knowledge mashallah.

all praise be to allah subhana watha allah the most knowledgable and the most wise.

Indeed! Theres is so much knowledge to be obtained from even a single verse of the Qur'an. But unfortunately most people just skim through it saying "Yeah, yeah, very interesting". It's such a shame when they can obtain so much more. :)
