The Ultimate Weapon.


Don’t ever underestimate du’a. What is the value of du’a? That you are transferring a situation from your power and ability to the power and ability of Allah. You are moving obstacles from yourself to the One who has no obstacles...

Shaykh Abul-Fadl.

    Do you have some link containing a profile/ background info. of this Shaykh Abul-Fadl at all?

    It is the first I have heard of him though his words are profound, if I could read more from him it would be good.

    A mistake people often make is strive to do things, gather the materials, and work their whole self up with all their energy used while missing to make the most important thing to be done to achieve any goal, Ask from Allah!
    May Allah make us among those who consistently make Zikr, aameen!
