A Friday Reflection shared from our Suhba Online Program with Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui.
As we climbed up towards Yoros Castle, we passed a woman hanging her sewn and stitched wares on a fence.
Two hours later, we passed her again.
She was reciting the Qur’an with otherworldly serenity.
Shaykh Mokhtar was deeply affected. He asked us to please purchase some of her goods. Most of us did.
As we continued, he asked: “Did you see which sura she was reading? Ya sin.”
“Do you know, among many things, what it is read for? Provision.”
“Contemplate the meaning of what just happened: Du‘a’ is also work; reading your daily portion of remembrance is work; reliance on Allah with your heart is work.”
With her heart in a different world of work, provision came to her through foreigners from North, South, East and West.
My wird is work. May Allah open my heart through the wonders of His work. Amin.
Let’s not forget to read Surat al-Kahf today and send abundant salawat on the Beloved ﷺ.
