The sheikh without wuduu


    The story of a Sheikh who prayed without doing Wudhu.
    Abdallah was assigned to supervise a Sheikh of the Masjid in his area.
    This Sheikh was a scholar with a lot of knowledge, and had the looks of a righteous man, and was respected by everyone.
    One day the Sheikh came to the Masjid just before the prayer time and went into the bathroom, while Abdallah went to do Wudhu.
    Abdallah finished doing Wudhu and went to drink water from the fridge next to the bathroom door.
    When the Muadheen finished the Adhan, the Sheikh came out quickly looking at his right and left and did not see anyone.
    So he washed his hands and wiped his face with water and went into the Masjid without doing Wudhu.
    Abdallah was watching and was shocked how the Sheikh entered the Masjid to perform the prayers without Wudhu.
    He was unable to sleep that night thinking how he was deceived by this Sheikh, who was pretending all these months to be a righteous man.
    He does not accept people to talk bad about others.
    He urges people to straighten and not to do sin and calls them to repentance.
    It looks like all this time he was acting.
    The next day Abdallah went to his old friend, the officer of the area and told him everything that had happened.
    The officer hit his hand and said, "Oh, what a calamity, I have been praying behind this Sheikh for 8 months, and he appears to be a liar and enters the Masjid without Wudhu."
    The officer thanked Abdallah and told him to silence the matter and not to tell anyone, and he will follow up the matter.
    After telling his colleagues and their advisors, they decided to remove the Sheikh and put him under surveillance.
    After which Abdallah was honored for his attention and keenness.
    The Sheikh was removed, which made him to leave the city and go to his old city.
    Years later Abdallah got a skin disease in his thigh, and the doctor told him that he should change the dressing whenever pus comes out of the inflammation so that the condition does not worsen.
    One day he entered the Masjid and had the pus in his wound, he had to change the dressing and went into the bathroom to replace the dressing.
    When he finished, he went out quickly to catch up with the congregational prayer.
    He stood in front of the water faucet and wanted to renew his Wudhu.
    He remembered that he did not break his Wudhu and if he do Wudhu again, he would delay his prayer.
    So he washed his hands and wiped his face and went to the Masjid.
    Here he remembered the scene he saw 10 years ago and said: "O Allah, was I unfair to the Sheikh?"
    He rushed to the officer of the area, and asked him for the Sheikh's address and after a long search he found the address.
    He went the next day, and after a search and trouble, he found the house of the Sheikh.
    He knocked the door and an old woman came out and he greeted her Assalam Aleikum.
    Then he asked her: "Is this the house of the Sheikh?"
    The old woman asked: "Are you his friend?"
    He said: "Yes I am his friend."
    She said to him: "Welcome."
    In the yard of the house, he saw a young man with a disability sitting on a wheelchair and wearing ragged clothes.
    When he sat down, he asked: "Where is the Sheikh?"
    She told him that the Sheikh died 8 years ago because of the worsening of the skin disease, and that he did not have money.
    His wife also died years later due to pneumonia and left this disabled child with her.
    Abdallah slapped his face and exploded in tears at what he had done to the Sheikh and his family.

    Do not judge what you see quickly.
