Imaam Sa’dee and the Shivering Old Man

October 18, 2013 § Leave a comment

Shaikh Abdullah Aqeel said about his Shaikh, Imaam Sa’dee (d. 1956), “An eyewitness mentioned that on a winter’s day with heavy rain, our Shaikh saw an elderly man in the Jaami’ mosque shivering due to the severe cold and wearing worn-out clothes. When our Shaikh saw him in such a state he went behind a pillar so that no one would see him and took off one of his two thawbs, folded it and gave it to the man who then wore it, fended off the cold with it and who then supplicated for him.”

Ash-Shaikh ’Abdur-Rahmaan As-Sa’dee Kamaa ’Araftuhu, p. 18.
