    THANK YOU AMAD for putting this post up. this was a great reminder of the two bounties of Allah. InshAllah I will pray for him. It takes a lot of courage to still give naseehah in his condition. I could see the pain he was in, Allah give good health. I shared the video on my facebook as well.

    Wallahi, I have been trying to jot down my deviant ideas on the harms of habitual idleness, but I feel like wiping off everything I wrote, and just re-post this naseehah. “Watch, cry and make du’a” .. no doubt. May Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala expedite the shaykh’s recovery and help him to remain steadfast and patient.

    Jazakallahu Khairun Amad. Ws.

      truly heart-wrenching… I met the shaykh only a few months ago… and he seems worse now. I have also seen him in all his healthy glory and mashallah there aren’t many shayookh in the world more amazing than him in rhetoric and radiating sincerity…

      ya allah, make the shaykh’s dawah and effect on people as a waseela to cure him… his family needs him, and the Muslims need him…

    Thank you so much for posting this, and to whoever took the time to record it as well. May Allah grant the shyakh a recovery to stable health, to make this test easy for him and his wife and family, and to illuminate their path in this life and the next. I have always appreciated Sh,Ibrahim Dremali since hearing him years ago in Texas masha’Allah. May Allah grant us all a good ending on la ilaha il Allah. Ameen.

    Thank you, Br. Amad for this post; really gripped my heart, and made me realize what an ingrate I am, not thanking Allah for all His blessings, and here the Shaykh, despite all that he is going through, is giving us this beautiful message. Praying that Allah puts His healing touch on him.

    subhanAllah….by far, Shaykh Ibrahim is one of the most lively speakers I have ever heard, and to see him in such a state truly makes one speechless. still, his passion to help us seek the path of Allah brings tears to my eyes.

    may Allah purify him through his illness, grant him shifaa, reward him for his advice to all of us, and bring ease to him.

    thank you for this post. really, may Allah reward you.

    Subhanallah, I am honored that this Shiek cares enough about me and the ummah to share some advice with us from his hospital bed. May Allah reward him for all of his efforts and good deeds. Such sincerity is not often seen but always appreciated. May Allah grant him Jannah. May he grant him and his family patience Inshallah.

    I’m at a loss for words. May Allah grant Imam Dremali his health, even better than it was before. I will never forget when the shaykh came to my community in washington state about 5 years ago. Truly a sincere individual….

    I last met Shaykh Ibrahim outside the Haram in Makkah while on hajj in 2008. It was very late one night. He shared some Naseeha with me and we departed.
    May Allah grant him shifaa and a place in jannah.
