Shaikh Khalid al-‘Anbarî Around the GTA

The praise is Allah’s, the February conference is underway. Turn out so far has been pretty good with a bunch of new faces, as well as a bunch of old ones (some of whom I haven’t seen for ages); and the praise is Allah’s. The Friday sermon was very nice, with the shaikh speaking about having good assumptions of Allah. The talk the shaikh gave after the evening prayer (‘ishâ’) was very nice as well; he spoke about the various remedies one can derive from chapter Yūsuf (ch. 12). I missed the first lecture held yesterday, so I can’t really give you an idea of how it was. I’m told however, the shaikh gave an introduction to the main topic of this weekend: Commanding the recognized good acts (al-ma’rūf) and prohibiting the reprehensible acts (al-munkar). After the sunset prayer (maghrib), the shaikh continued with Shaikh of Islam Ibn Taimiyyah’s book and completed it shortly after the evening prayer. This was followed by a question and answer session.
