For some of us hardships seem to hit back to back. And for others, it gets so dark, we don’t even notice. And yet others have fallen to such a spiritual low, even feeling disconnected from our Creator.
And that’s the scariest type of all.
“Be patient” is definitely easier said than done. Everyone knows at a logical level what should be done to pull through a moment of difficulty.
Yet, when we’re in the heart of darkness, hollow pieces of advice is the last thing we want to hear. And that’s when we drift into isolation, spiraling into the darkness.
So how do we find our way out?
In this special IlmNight feature, Yasmin Mogahed delves into this very matter.
- How do you reconnect with Allah after having been so far away?
- How do you recognize your personal triggers?
- How do you discover your natural opinion of Allah?
- How do you control your knee-jerk reaction to calamity?
- What is the difference between Sabr and Rida?
- How do you determine if hardship is punishment or blessing?
- What are the ways to survive and thrive in times of hardship?
- How do we leverage our hardships to become stronger and closer to Allah?
Dunya's distractions are abundant. Hardships are for a reason. Taking this course provides more than a path, it is direction and guidance we need and should follow every day.
Will leave you prepared to rise above the storm! I loved this lecture. It goes straight to the heart.
I have read my fair share of help books ... but none have even come close to making me 'embrace' the 'trials' in my life like Yasmin did.
