Tonight we reviewed the story of the thirty-ninth figure on the Silsila: Abdallah al-Faiz ad-Daghestani (q).
We learned that Shaykh Abdallah (q) led his people safely out of the Caucasus to Turkey as a small child. Shaykh Abdallah hid his people with a special prayer. My son said that it is very useful be invisible when there is a dangerous situation.
We learned that Shaykh Abdallah (q) had a 5 year seclusion in a mountain cave with 5 cold showers per day and many chapters of Quran to read and dzikr to recite. My son told me that if he tried to do all those things he would be tired. I told him it made me tired just to read about it.
