Surah Duha was a powerful, emotional message to the Prophet (S) about relying on Allah. Mufti Hussain Kamani tells its story. Recorded at the 2015 MSA National Convention in Chicago, IL on September 4, 2015.
Challenges should not deter us. They should bolster our determination to pursue what is good. While we may be living during trying times, we must remember that Allah promised to support the believers. We must stand strong and keep our trust in Allah.
The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ warned us that “the time will come on my Ummah where the one who will be holding on his deen will be like the one who is holding on a hot burning piece of coal”. Even today it is hard for our children to hold onto faith, what about our grandchildren and generations to come? Do we think they will say “La Illaha Illa Allah”? How can we keep the flame of faith alive in our grandchildren and in future generations?
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) made his famous statement, “don’t be sad, Allah is with us” to Abu Bakr to calm him. A similar statement was made by Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) when he reassured his people of Allah’s support, even when all hope seems lost. It’s a statement that gets to the core belief that no one can save you from harm. Only Allah can protect you. As American Muslims face an uncertain future, it’s important to keep this ayah in mind.
