Im going to visit MSN (qs) on the 4th April alhamdulillah insha’Allah. May I have MSH (qs) blessing. My question is:
1-What can I do, or say, or take with me, that will make Mawlana happy because I heard that MSH (qs) says make your Shaikh happy because they have a lot of burdens and stress. What does MSN like that I can take as a gift for him, can MSH tell me something he knows Mawlana likes a lot.
2- What are the adaab of entering , leaving and spending time in Mawlana’s presence especially for a young man lke myself 21 years old. Should I not turn my back when leaving, smile a lot, look at him directly, speak or not, kiss his hands, feet, hug him, kiss his forehead. Can Mawlana Sheikh Hisham give me a dua I can ask him for.
Salaam to MSH and eshaykh staff.
wa `alaykum salam,
In terms of material gifts, we believe money is better than other gifts like perfume, because Mawlana has rooms full of these gifts which everyone buys for him.
Spiritually the best gift is a sincere heart and good manners. Make your intention for visiting Mawlana that you wish to please Allah and His prophet, and to seek nearness to your Lord. In the presesnce of Mawlana, do not speak unless spoken to, know that you are in the presence of the holiest man in this world, ask for Akhira in your heart, do not ask for dunya matters.
Success is from Allah.
