At the Pyramid

The Wolf and the Sheep
Feb09 2014 English 25min
Everyone takes benefit from the sun, regardless of what one does. We must take a lesson from this and be satisfied with Allah's arrangement. But most of us are jealous of Allah's favors on others. Jealousy makes life miserable for the one who carries it and for those around him. May Allah protect us from the bad characteristics of our ego. Real comfort comes from inner peace not from material riches. When Allah gives more He often gives it with more trouble, more problems. Allah's biggest favor to us is that He has given us a murshid to show us the way. For this favor, this heavenly manifestation, we must be in shukr always. For this priceless gift from Allah even if we were in sajda always it would not be enough.
The Secret of Drawing Near

Oceans of Onions
Feb08 2014 English 22min
It is a blessing from Allah that we enjoy making salawats on our Prophet. Most joy comes in limits and often with a burden. Most enjoyment is like a drop of honey with a lot of onion. By Allah's blessing He knows His servants and He is able to get us to carry an ocean of onions with just a drop of honey. For a diamond to become valuable it takes much cutting. For the clever one patience and thankfulness keeps him from getting cheated by life. The clever one lives in the present and knows the future belongs to Allah. We ask for Allah to give us the real enjoyment by patience and shukr.
