One day a very pious and humble man was making Ibaadat by a river. He was very hungry, as he had not eaten for three days and three nights. Just then he noticed an apple floating in the river, in his direction. He reached out and took this apple and ate it. After he had eaten the apple, this pious man whose name was Sayyidi Abu Saaleh, realised that he had ate someone else’s apple for it did not belong to him. He decided to go in search of the owner of this apple. He walked alongside the river for a long time until he reached an orchard that had an apple tree. He immediately knew that the apple had come from this orchard.


Shaykh Hassan-Afandi al-Kahibi - a knower of the revealed and the concealed

To be entitled to fully estimate the meaning of such an outstanding personality as Shaykh Hassan-Afandi al-Kahibi, one should first exceed the latter in his knowledge.

Due to our scarce knowledge in comparison to that of the Shaykh and thus our unworthiness to write about him, we can merely mention some facts from his life in our striving to please Allah and His Messenger. In this article the least thing we can do is to tell about the great teachers and masters who nourished the knowledge and the character of Hassan-Afandi, to describe his spiritual legacy and to cite what the theologians of the past and the present used to say about the Shaykh.


Hassan Al-Basri, a beacon of knowledge

Hassan Al-Basri (21-110 A.H.) emerged as one of th e greatest theologian tutor of Basra, leader of the scholars of his time and well known for his strict and encompassing embodiment of the Sunnah. He is also famous for his immense knowledge, fearless remonstration of the authorities with power of attraction in discourse and as the adviser to Caliph Umar bin Abdul Aziz.
