Astonishing Chronicles of Those That Go Out in the Path of Allah

A Nurse’s Proposal

 In The Name of Allah, The Merciful, The Compassionate

“There was a companion of ours in Glasgow who became ill and was hospitalized. He was admitted for three days and on the fourth day the attendant nurse said, “Marry me”. He [the brother in Glasgow] asked, “Why? I am a Muslim, you and I cannot become companions.” She said, “I’ll become Muslim”. “What’s the reason?” it was asked. She said, “In all my time that I have served in hospitals, except you, I have never seen a man lower his gaze in front of a woman.” “In my life you are the first person who lowers his gaze when seeing a woman.” “I come, and you close your eyes. Such great modesty can be taught by none other than a true religion.” The protection of one’s gaze entered Islam in her. She became Muslim. They both got married. By now, that girl has become the means of bringing so many other girls into Islam. How many of the women there have become Muslim.”

[Mawlana Tariq Jamil]

Subhan’Allah, I’ve heard this story so many times already but it’s nice to see these stories, that our elders always tell, are somewhere written down now actually.

May Allah reward you brothers and Maulana Tariq Jamil db.
