Spring Youth Retreat - Sat 5/19/12 9:30a-9:30p - Hamza Masjid Valley Stream, NY
As-Salamu ‘Alaikum WRWB,
Respected Brothers and Sisters in Islam,
The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “There are seven whom Allah will shade with His shade on the day when there will be no shade except His: the just ruler; a young man who grows up worshipping his Lord; a man whose heart is attached to the mosque; two men who love one another for the sake of Allah and meet and part on that basis; a man who is called by a woman of rank and beauty and says ‘I fear Allah’; a man who gives in charity and conceals it to such an extent that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives; and a man who remembers Allah when he is alone, and his eyes fill up.”
[Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
