Full of compassion

I was extremely fortunate to see Habib, one of these truly great human beings, as he was at the end of his life, Alhamdulillah.

I think of the mithal (example) often used in tasawwuf of the mother turtle who lays her eggs on the seashore. As the eggs hatch, the first thing the baby turtle sees is the mother throwing back a glance at her young before she disappears into the vast ocean.

This was Habib, calm, joyful and majestic, showing the way to his spiritual young, before he disappeared into the ocean of the Unseen.

(Abdul Adheem Saunders, Chetham)
