Hamza Yusuf Desert


In desert with oppressed Arabs about to cross but it’s dangerous, they’re sitting in a row but I’m standing, Hamza Yusuf is saying to us “when Imam Ahmad was in the desert he didn’t sit like you, he stood up straight with honour and belief.”


The statement points to Imam Ahmad’s narration of an encounter, at the time of the fitna in which he had been arrested and was being conveyed to jail, with a desert Arab who told him: “Ahmad! If al-Haqq (Allah Most High) kills you, you die as a shahid, and if you live you live most honored.” Ahmad said: “He strengthened my heart.”
