Having a day out waiting for the family to shop I was hanging out with our taxi driver Sa’eed, may Allah have mercy upon him. We were talking and he told me a story about a conversation between a Muslim Scholar and a Priest.
If you have been practising your Arabic maybe you can understand a few words. If not maybe you can get someone to help you. How many words do you understand?
Question: Why did the Priest say that Muslims are not going to Paradise? How did the Muslim scholar in the story turn all of the points made by the Priest around?
Indeed our brother Sa’eed may not be speaking the type of fluent Arabic that you are learning in books. Nevertheless his Arabic is how you buy your bread, speak to your doctor and take a cab to the right store with the help of Allah. We ask Allah for His mercy, forgiveness, guidance and His help.
