a group of Muslims were on their travels propagating Islam in
Edinburgh. The Imam was leading the prayer [in a public place]. After
completing it, he was met by a few girls. One of the girls asked, "Do
you know English?"
young man [who was leading the prayer] said, "I do."
said, "What is this that you have done?"
young man replied, "We have performed worship."
girl said, "But today isn’t Sunday."
young man said, "We do this five times a day."
lady expressed, "That’s a lot."
young man explained that if the blessings of Allah Ta'ala are kept in view,
this is very little. And this is that action which brings about the spring
of tranquility. This isn’t hardship, this is felicity.
the girl extended her hand to bid farewell and the young man said,
"Forgive me for my hand cannot touch you."
said, "This is my wife’s trust".
girl collapsed to the ground. With tears in her eyes, she said, "How
blessed is that wife who has such a husband. O that the men in Europe
would be like this!"
