A lecture from the seminar in Philadelphia/New Jersey (2002). One of the duʿāʾt from England, Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl Davis delivers a lecture rich in aḥādīth and fruitful narrations concerning the ‘Āllimah (Scholar) and Daa’iyah (Caller to Islām); Ummul-Mu’mineen, ‘Aa’ishah (raḍī Allāhu ʿanhā). A fine example of the Muslim woman who wishes to emulate the Sunnah. Abū Ḥakīm demonstrates the actualisation of the Sunnah at the hands of ‘The Mother of the Believers’. Several examples from the life of the noble companion and wife of the Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) are brought forth in order to demonstrate clinging to the Sunnah.
The Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said, “Verily rifq (gentleness) does not exist in something, except that it beautifies it. And it is not taken out of something, except that it harms it.”
