All praises and thanks be to Allah SWT. Abundant salutations be upon His And our Beloved SAW.

I was honoured and privileged to spend my morning in a gathering of a reading of the 40 ahadīth on the virtues of the Qur’an by Mulla Ali al-Qari. I was issued sanad and ijaazah from Sheikh Riyaadh Obaray, a soft-spoken soul and qualified teacher at Al-Tanzil Institute of Qur’anic sciences. He didn’t charge a cent but requested us to pass on the knowledge that we’ve learned from him. I urge you to download the book for free here and benefit from it InShaAllah.

I’ve always wanted to die young, because I was afraid of my body deteriorating and of losing my independence. Until today. Today I learned that the Prophet SAW made a special du’a for the teachers of sacred knowledge, that they be kept “moist” i.e. preserved. SubhanAllah. Sheikh Riyaadh told us about teachers who are in their nineties and are still teaching on a daily basis. May Allah SWT make us amongst them. Āmīn.

With best of du’as for your worldly and Hereafter success,
