Hope in the Face of Hardship


“For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease.”
[Quran, 94:5]

We cannot go through life without going through hardships. They are inevitable in the life of a Muslim as they come to us from Allah alone as a test of our faith. However, our sole objective must be to pass through the hardships and get closer to our Creator.

But how does one overcome them?

The “Hope in the face of Hardship” seminar by Ustadh Muhammad Tim Humble and Ustadh AbdulRahman Hassan will shed light upon the hardships of both Prophet Yunus and Prophet Ayyub (عليهما السلام ) in detail and make us aware of how they endured the toughest of trails with steadfastness, perseverance and solid faith in Allah.

By the end of the “Hope in the face of Hardship” Seminar, In Sha Allah, we will learn:

·         The story of Prophet Yunus ( عليه السلام ) and the supplication he made during the time of distress, through which Allah has promised to relieve the distress of every believer.

·         The story of Prophet Ayyub ( عليه السلام ), his hardships, and why he was one of Allah’s most sincere worshippers.

·         To reflect upon self and assess our relationship with Allah.

·         How to deal with prolonged hardships, without losing hope in Allah

·         The tricks and traps by Shaitan during hardship and how he makes us despair the mercy of Allah.

·         The role sins play in causing hardship and the fundamental principles concerning them.

Make the most of this opportunity to learn to earn the pleasure of Allah in hardship through stories of Prophet Yunus and Prophet Ayyub (عليهما السلام )

A Sound Heart – By Shaikh Tahir Wyatt

The premise:

The Prophetصلى الله عليه وسلمsaid about the heart: Truly in the body there is a morsel of flesh which, if it is healthy, all the body is healthy and which, if it is diseased, all of the body is diseased. Truly it is the heart. [al-Bukhaaree, Muslim]

The spiritual health of the heart is affected by the evils of sins like envy, pride, despair, evil desire, conceit etc.. These sins when left unchecked cover the heart until the heart loses its spiritual life and is hardened, preventing the goodness of emaan, taqwa, tawakkul, khushoo’ etc. from developing a healthy heart that is acceptable to Allāh و سبحانه
تعالى who says:

The Day whereon neither wealth nor sons will avail, “But only he (will prosper) that
brings to Allāh, a sound heart
– Translation of the meanings of Al-Qur’ān, Ash-Shu’ara:88-89

The program outcomes:
Most of us have been, or are affected by sickness of the heart & it is crucial to gain an understanding of how to develop a sound heart that is acceptable to Allah تعالى و سبحانه
