Tonight, we  hosted Dr. Ali Shehata for one of the lecture series organized by Silver Sage Foundation. Dr. Ali had a commentary/discussion on one of the “40 hadith of Imam an-Nawawi.” There were guests from community members. We want to thank both Dr Ali for the wonderful discussion+talk and the guests for their participation. Everyone was engaged and  enjoyed the interaction.

Below is the hadith we had for a commentary tonight.

Abu Malik al-Ashari reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Purity is half of faith, and the praise of Allah fills the scale. Glorification and praise fill up what is between the heavens and the earth. Prayer is a light, charity is proof, and patience is enlightenment. The Quran is a proof for you or against you. All people go out early in the morning and sell themselves, either setting themselves free or ruining themselves.”  (Muslim)
