al-Habib ‘Abd al-Qadir: A Biography and 2 Lessons

Bismi Llah…

On 19th Rabi` al-Thani we commemorate the life of the great Imam, Habib `Abdulqadir al-Saqqaf, the shaykh of all our shuyukh. It is two years since he passed away but his memory lives on.

We present two short videos with English subtitles filmed on a visit he made to Oman in 1988. In “Learning How to Ask Allah”, Habib `Abdulqadir gives us some valuable advice on how to approach our Lord. While the second video was filmed during a visit he made to his ancestor, Imam Muhammad bin `Ali “Sahib Mirbat”, the grandfather of al-Faqih al-Muqaddam and the ancestor of all the great Ba `Alawi scholars. In it he discusses the importance of attending the gatherings of the pious and attaching one’s heart to them:

Learning How to Ask Allah:

Keeping the Company of the Pious:

May Allah reward al-Ustadh Amin Buxton for his hard work in preparing the videos.
