Shortly before Sheikh Ml Ibrahim Mia's (Rahmatullah Alayh) demise a few of us from Kzn visited Sheikh (Rahmatullah Alayh) at his home in Lenasia.
After enquring about Sheikh's health we told Sheikh about a home visit we had done in order to encourage someone towards deen. This person was far from deen, but Alhamdulillah, Allah opened the heart towards understanding.
Sheikh (Rahmatullah Alayh) was greatly pleased about this and advised us thus:
- The effort of connecting the peoples heart to Allah must also be done on a one to one basis.
- Allah will be greatly pleased by those who will visit the people in order that they may turn towards Him.
- Sheikh advised that the effort of the Khanqa must start adopting the methods of the Tabligh Jamaat i.e.
- Door to door visits to mureeds and general muslim public
- Have special programs for those doing the work to keep them motivated
- Have regular mashwerah with workers
May Allah accept us all for deeni work.
