Let’s explore the significance of two seemingly unrelated incidents that took place recently.
Both incidents shed light on our understanding and connection with the divine message of the Quran (al-Furqan).
On one hand, we have the heartwarming viral video of Imam Sheikh Walid Mehsas reciting the Quran during tarawih prayers, unfazed as a curious cat the circles him and climbs up onto his shoulders. The video has captured the attention of millions, becoming a hot topic of conversation across almost all major media outlets.
On the other hand, we have the distressing and scarcely publicized incident by the media in which Zionist occupation forces disrupted the prayers at the sacred Masjid al-Aqsa in Palestine, pushing worshippers one by one, effectively preventing them from worshipping Allah (swt). This unsettling video and the lack of media coverage raises questions yet again as this is almost an annual incident of these types of heinous crimes against Muslims.
As the Sheik delves into these contrasting scenarios, lets honestly ask ourselves:
Are we merely captivated by the visual appeal of the viral video of the Imam and the cat, or are we truly engaging with the profound and powerful message he was reciting at that moment?
Are we able to understand and implement the divine guidance of the Quran (al Furqan), or are we allowing it to become disconnected from our lives and reduced to mere recitation?
Join us as the Sheik as he expertly sheds light on the importance of reconnecting with the Quran as the only guide (Criterion) to navigate the complexities of our world in the month of Ramadan.
