One of the Greatest Afflictions of Our Ummah
Salik and I were reading a little booklet from Shaykh Yahya, and something the author says really stood out for us as a very poignant remark about the ummah in our times.
"One of the most dangerous things that has afflicted the youth of the community is their ignorance of the life and pure, fragrant characteristics of their Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), such that, were you to say to one of them, 'write what you know about your Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace)', their knowledge would not exceed a page!"
May Allah protect us from ignorance of our beloved and noble Messenger; the Chosen One; the Beloved of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace).
