A GATHERING OF HEARTS
Shamail Habib al-Mustafa ﷺ by Sheikh Muhammed Abul Huda al Yaqoubi, at the grand Abdul Hamid Mosque in Kayabaşı, 34494 Başakşehir/ İstanbul, Turkey.
Shiekh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi has recited the full Shamail Sharif in the United kingdom previously.
On beholding the newly built mosque for the first time, the eye can see how everything was built to be subordinated by an imposing central dome… a tell-tale trait of Turkish mosques; a sort of cascade of descending half domes, vaults, and ascending buttresses leads the eye up and down the building’s exterior. For this mosque, a single minaret, slender and tall, while the open space of the surrounding courts give the feeling of a sanctuary, away from the hustle and bustle.
A feeling of peace tenable as soon as you step inside. A beautiful, open expanse of breadth. The chandelier from the central dome; unusually low and which makes play of a wide circle laced with candle like lamps… which has the effect of drawing in and centering. Masjid simply means a “place of prostration” and in this mosque, like the others in Turkey, this is what your heart is drawn to do. And in this setting, where the breeze whispers with hundreds of years of holy utterances, this then was decided a place fit to utter the description of Perfection – The Shamail of Habeeb al- Mustafa ﷺ.
Sheiks, Families, students and travellers from all over the World came together to celebrate, by joining this honoured gathering. Sheikh Muhammed Abul Huda al Yaqoubi took almost seven precious hours to recite the heavenly descriptions. He shared beautiful intricate details and further broke down and commentated on the Hadith where necessary for the majority to understand. The random bursts of praises from those attending, echoed throughout the Main hall.
Sacred Knowledge is Congratulating all those who were present and mostly those who benefited by supporting these events.
