Silsila: 30. Abdallah ad-Dahlawi Shah Ghulam Ali (q)

Tonight we reviewed the story of the thirtieth figure on the Silsila: Abdallah ad-Dahlawi Shah Ghulam Ali (q).

We learned that Shaykh Abdallah (q) had a long seclusion with no food for 40 days to ask help from Allah (s).  He was then taken up to the divine presence.  I asked my son what he thought of not eating for so long.  He said that he would like to do that but it would be too hard.  I told him it would be too hard for me too.  

We learned that Shaykh Abdallah (q) prayed for rain to come during a hot drought and Allah (s) answered his prayer.  My son said he would have put a bucket out to catch the rain.  We then talked about why Allah (s) answered Shaykh Abdallah’s (q) prayer.
