    Assalamualykum warahemutullahee wabarakatahu,

    Mashallah..Subahanallah..Excellent lecture.Jazakumaallahu khairaa brother .May Allah guide us.The incident of a drinking brother coming to masajid reminded me of a hadith

    Once a man was brought to the Prophet because he had been drinking alcohol. The Prophet told his Companions to give him a beating. Abu Hurairah, the reporter of the hadith said:
    One person beat him with his hand, another with his robe. When it was over and the man was leaving, some of us said to him, “May Allah humiliate you.” The Prophet said to us, “Do not say that to him because you would be helping Satan against him. Say instead, ‘May God have mercy on you.'” (Al-Bukhari, Ahmad, Abu Dawud, and Ibn Hibban)

    Yah Allah !!Give us towfeeq to be kind and gentle to our brothers and sisters .
