May Allah make us pleased with what pleases Him.
Adding more to our Women’s collection, Good News For The Strange Sister, was recorded in Los Angeles, CA at the Masjid where our Sheikh Fareed Abdullah (may Allah preserve him) is the Imam.
We had just gotten off of a long flight from the east coast, landed in LA and went to the Masjid in time for the khutbah. Word spread that Abu Uwais had just arrived. We were all tired and I was looking for a hotel and a bed. Someone came out and told Abu Uwais, “There are people here including sisters. They want to know if you can give a talk.” He looked at me and I looked at him. I said, “Give me a few minutes to unpack the audio.”
Abu Uwais then requested to use Fareed’s library which was upstairs in the Masjid. He came down shortly after I had set up the recording gear. He got on the microphone and the rest was history.
I understand that some people cried that day, from the affect of this talk which Abu Uwais had not prepared for in advance. I was in shock by the ease of delivery and fluency that I heard coming from him. But with Allah all things are possible.
When I came home to Philly after the trip I listened to it again. I thought about how it had touched those sisters who listened. So I gave it the title that you see.
If any sister is feeling low, sad or depressed I ask Allah, our God, to allow this talk to reach her as it reached our sisters on that sunny blessed day in Los Angeles with my dear companion whom I miss so very much, Abu Uwais Abdullah Ahmad Ali (may Allah have mercy upon his soul and those he left behind).

A reminder for our men and women on the honorable role, position and status of our women in Islam by looking at the life of Khadeejah bint Khuwaylid (may Allah be pleased with her).
This was at a Sister’s Luncheon hosted by Masjidu Rahmah. It was a nice day and a very nice event. I remember that during the event brothers were competing as they had flowers sent to the tables where their wives were sitting. And the food was really good! Maashaa Allah. Allah is The Giver of all that is good.
Masjid ar-Rahmah Presents: “The Virtues & Benefits Of The Month Of Ramadhaan” Lecture October 2004. It was at this lecture that “We Need A Ramadhaan” by Abu Uwais was born may Allah reward him well for that talk. But…..here’s my favorite. As you will hear he was sick. This was his last lecture series he gave on Ramadhaan as Allah, The Tremendous, The Compassionate took his life the following month, raheemahullaah. Gather the family around for this one! I hope you enjoy it. -Abu Muhammad
