Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim
As-salamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray that this finds you steadfastly travelling the way to and in Allah, and that Allah firmly plants your feet in the maharib of serving the da'wa of Mustafa.
I am writing you to convey the great news and weighty trust that Sayyidi Al-Habib Umar has agreed to give a weekly lesson to those who have taken his hand in the spiritual path in foreign lands and others who wish to attend.
He has set the date for Sunday 28th Rabi al-Awwal [March 14] (the day before Dar al Mustafa's Annual Mawlid) from 11 AM - 12 PM Makka time (+3 GMT).
Personal questions pertaining to one's suluk or the dawa can also be asked via email at; firstname.lastname@example.org
. Brief and pertinent questions are more likely to receive a response and if you can type in Arabic (or scan yourself) please do.
We realize this is short-notice, however, the news came somewhat abruptly and while we were on the road. We have also been discussing the best way to conduct the lessons with those who are already involved in e-learning.
Please find attached an invitation to the lesson which we kindly request you to forward to the aforementioned group (i.e. Habib's murids and those who wish to attend); bearing in mind, however, that many of those who have made a bay`a to him feel isolated and long to have more of a connection, and that the live session is likely to reach capacity so perhaps they should receive priority in terms of invitation.
There are likely to be some bumps and potholes on the way, but with Allah’s tawfiq, we are confident that it will be a blessed aid to people’s journeys as well as a source of good for the lands and slaves of Allah.
We love you all for Allah and are in need of your du'as.
At the service of the Mashayikh and Ikhwan,
