Those Who Walk Gently on Earth

Alhamdulillah, after being blessed to see Shaykh Nuh Keller and his wife Ustadha Umm Sahl, the following ayah has repeatedly echoed in my heart.

"And the servants of the All-Merciful are those who walk gently on earth and when the ignorant address them, they say, "Peace!"; " (Qur'an 25:63)

وَعِبَادُ الرَّحْمَنِ الَّذِينَ يَمْشُونَ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ هَوْنًا وَإِذَا خَاطَبَهُمُ الْجَاهِلُونَ قَالُوا سَلَامًا

May Allah make us of those who walk gently on earth.

*Also, keep your eye out for Sh. Nuh's breathtakingly beautiful edition of the Dala'il al-Khayrat, Imam al-Juzuli's famous manual of Blessings on the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace). It is by far the most beautifully designed book I own. Masha'Allah.


  1. I would like to acquire a copy. How may I do so in Toronto?

  2. Also, Sidi Faraz Rabbani pointed out a translation of the Moroccan edition of the Dala'il al-Khayrat:

    Although not a direct translation of the edition published by Shaykh Nuh, a good reference to give one the general meaning of the text.

  3. I'm not quite sure, but as I said, keep your eye open for local distributors. For members of, they will soon carry them as well, insha'Allah.
