Al-Tayyeb Yousef, a trustworthy Sudanese shepherd, whose loyalty and honesty earned him a great respect & reward, after his video clip refusing to sell one of his sponsor’s sheep went viral on social media.
Allaah subhaanhu wa ta3alaa praises His slaves with these qualities in the Qur’aan:
وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِأَمَانَاتِهِمْ وَعَهْدِهِمْ رَاعُونَ
(interpretation of the meanings):
“Those who are faithfully true to their amaanaat (all the duties which Allaah has ordained, honesty, moral responsibility and trusts, etc.) and to their covenants.” [soorah Al-Mu’minoon, verse:8]
and He said: (interpretation of the meanings)
“And Whoever fears Allaah, He will make for him a way out.
And will provide for him from where he does not expect.”
[soorah At- Talaaq, verse:2-3]
The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said, “Many a person with shaggy and dusty hair, dusty and driven away from doors (because of their poverty and shabby clothes) were to swear by Allaah (that something would happen), Allaah will certainly make it happen.” [Muslim]
Yousef was awarded a check worth SR 20,000/- by Al-Hussaini Foundation, in the presence of Shaykh 3Adel Al-Mahalawi, the person who filmed the video clip. Al-Mahalawi is also the Imaam and Lecturer at Al-Sa3egh mosque in Al-Medlej province. Some philanthropists also gave Yousef another check worth the same amount.
