This lecture & discussion program aims to address the spiritual issues faced by Muslims, especially in the current tide of tribulations faced by Muslims in Gaza, Syria, and so on. The program will discuss spiritual approaches for Muslims when faced with tribulations. It aims to address the following questions:
  • How can we reconcile the oppression and tribulation of the Muslim Ummah with the Divine Mercy and Divine Decree?
  • What can Muslims do to help the people of Gaza or Syria and other oppressed communities? 
  • Allah instructed believers who are facing tribulations to be firm and remember Allah frequently and strengthen the internal tapestry of the community. How can we maintain this steadfastness in the midst of manifest trouble as can be seen in places like Iraq, Syria and Gaza?
  • How should Muslims react when faced with calls of jihad, confrontation and adversity? 
  • How can spiritual empowerment be the way forward?
