People! Remember Allaah! Remember Allaah! The Raajifah comes,

"Whatever you wish." I said, "A quarter?" He
said, "Whatever you wish, and if you increase then it is better for

you wish, and if you increase then it is better." I said,
"Then two thirds?" He said, "Whatever you wish, and if you
increase then it is better." I said, "Shall I make all of my
supplication for you?" He said, "Then all of your concerns
would be taken care of, and your sins forgiven." Declared
