FiAmanAllah, Tara Umm Omar
In the program called “One Family” on MAJD channel, the speaker was Dr.Yahya Alyahya (head of the Call To Islam Committee). He said that Muslims are never disorganized; they just need to be CONVINCED.
Then he told a story of an American non-Muslim man who was discussing about Islam with him while he was watching a live broadcast of salat al-isha from the Ka’bah on TV. The American man was so amazed at how crowded the masjid was because more than 3 million Muslims were there in the last nights of the holy month of Ramadan. It was so crowded and so disorganized.
The sheikh asked the non-Muslim man: How long do you think they’ll take to organize themselves in rows and start the Salaat?
He answered: At least 2-3 hours.
The sheikh said: But the masjid al-Haram of Ka’bah is four floors.
The man said: Oh, this will make it about 12 hours then.
The sheikh said: Keep in your mind that they are from countries all over the world with different languages.
The American man said: Then its impossible to organize them by any means!
Then the salaat time came and sheikh Sudais of Makkah stood up and said “Estawoo” which in English means “arrange yourselves”.
And within seconds, the whole scene changed and the crowd of 3 million Muslims arranged themselves in well-organized rows in no time!
The American man stared at the TV screen for a moment and then said:
ASH-ASH-HADU AN LA ILAHA ILLA ALLAH WA ASH-HADU ANNA MOHAMMADAN RASOOLOLLAH (I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but ALLAH and I bear witness that Mohammad is His Servant and Messenger).
