Sometimes somebody does some wqlad raising for some cause. Third Lesson I learnt that to be human is to acquire. Then I looked around and I said that let me see what is it that ayyujal these people are acquiring, what is the object of their acquisition? I worked on my nafs to make it have good desires.

A person will be able to enjoy Salah, when they feel Allah swt in their prayer. I looked around and saw that everybody was trying to acquire things of the world. Imam Al-Ghazali wrote ayyuahl a very long letter which has been printed in the Arab world as a small Risala or an epistle. Hatim al-Asam begins every lesson with that: What I have heard from our mashaikh, ulema and elders, and which Prophet sws himself says in a hadith is that you should try to give from that which you love.


So, if we want to make our Salah an act of love, we need to start focusing on the adaab of Salah. I gave my love, my muhabbah to aimal as-saleh.


He gave a lot of money and goods in charity. To be human is to strive, to be human is to acquire, to be human is to achieve, to be human is to attain. It is very important to have that.

You have had my company for thirty years, what have you learnt in the 30 years that you have been with me? This whole world, every single thing that people have, is going to come to nothing when they pass away, and certainly when the world ends itself. How can I fall in love with Salah?

Hatim al-Asam was once in the company of his Shaykh, when Shaykh Shaqiq asked him: The second lesson that Shaykh Hatim rh says that he learnt from his Shaykh — Shaykh Shaqiq rh — is that again he said that I saw humanity, I reflected upon the human condition and I saw that to be human is to desire. That is why there are so many adaab in our Deen for all of the acts of worship, so that the acts become more enjoyable and we perform them with love.
