Allah’s mercy

Sitting in Masjid al-Haram behind the Yemeni corner of Holy Ka’aba sayyidi wa sanadi Hadhrat Mawlana Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve him) was approached by two Saudi individuals. They requested for permission to narrate the Prophetic sayings (sanad e hadith). Hadhrat inquired about their occupation. One was a teacher at Umm Al-Qura University, Makkah and the other a PhD student at the same institute.

 Hadhrat narrated the hadith musalsal bil awaliya to them through his Shuyukh and pointed out to them that the first lesson a student of Islamic sciences gets is that of Allah’s mercy. He emphasized that we should pay special attention to this and become a manifestation of this Divine mercy to the people around us.
