Humour of Shaykh Nazim Qabrasi: A Story
At Lefke, I had the honour to spend three days with Shaykh Nazim , may Allah bless his soul. Shaykh had a distinct mild homour, which attracted everyone toward him. He and his family were the most hospitable people I have met, who didn’t rest for a second to help Shaykh’s visitors from around the world. His family grew, plough and picked vegetables with their own hands to serve at dinner table, which was full of exceptional food. Shaykh always kept pushed to eat more. When dessert arrived, I excused saying there is not an inch left in stomach. Shaykh smiled and said, ‘No matter how busy the mosque, the Imam (dessert) always find its way to front row!
I gave up to this loving logic and ate my dessert too. May Allah bless soul of Shaykh Nazim. Ameen.
