After the conclusion of a monumentally beneficial seminar entitled "Fundamental Beliefs of a Muslim" in August 2018 with our teacher and elder Ḥasan as-Ṣomālī, he offered a short yet precise, heartwarming advice to the brothers and sisters at Masjid 'Abdullah ibn 'Abbaas in Tobago. Our teacher encouraged us to be patient upon the Book of Allāh and The Sunnah of The Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم), mentioning the rewards for the patient. He also gave an inspirational admonishment against despairing from the small numbers. This advice is pertinent to the people of the Sunnah throught the non-Muslim lands
On Wednesday 8th of Rabī al-Awwal 1438 (7th December 2016), in our weekly class in the explanation of the book, “The Book of Major Sins” by Shaykh ul Islām Muḥammad ibn ‘AbdilWahhāb, our noble Shaykh Bandar al-Khaybarī (اللهحفظه ) admonished us regarding the obligation of obedience to one's parents and the severity of disobedience to them.

"Furthermore, Islām is not a religion that only came to show the servant how to establish the relationship between himself and His Lord, rather Islām teaches the servant how to rectify his relationship with everything and everyone around him; how one should interact with his parents, relatives, neighbours, the innovators and even the animals. Islām commands us to obey and keep ties with our parents and to treat them kindly. Islām commands us to treat others kindly. Islām is a complete way of life, which teaches us how to interact with everything and everyone around us."

"Allāh does not look at the face, rather Allāh looks at the heart. And it is befitting for the Muslim who want his own salvation to rush to cleanse his heart."
