    Assalam alaikum Sheikh. Wa Jazak Allahu Khair! When the shaikh said ‘it’s for my own benefit’ and repeated it 3 times during this khutbah, it had my eyes fill with tears.

    Subhan Allah. Alhamdulillah.

    Bismillah. Shifa Allahu liYusuf ibn Waleed. Alhamdolillah I met with Shaykh Waleed yesterday. Truly we can learn so much from our teachers by observing their akhlaque and adab. MashaAllah, Shaykh Waleed’s manner bears witness to the barakat of his Islamic studies, to the good khuluq of his teachers, Rahim Allah alayhum.
