Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi talks about our spiritual aim to leave a legacy by leveraging and maximizing our good deeds during our time on earth.
Dr. Qadhi gives three necessary ingredients to leave an endowment that benefits both our self and our brothers & sisters in faith and humanity:
1. a sincere intention (Ikhlas) so that righteous people see you as a role model;
2. erase pride and ego (kibr) and become a humble leader with humilty (ihsaan);
3. we must actively practice patience (sabr).
Dr. Yasir also pays homage to great American-Muslim scholars like Ahmad Sakr, Jamal Badawi, and Imam Siraj Wahhaj.
Dr. Yasir delivered this talk at the Muslim Community Center – East Bay (MCC East Bay) in Pleasanton, California on Sunday, October 14, 2018.
The Qur’an tells us that “God does not change the condition of a people until they change their own condition” (13:11). We also know that the Prophet (God’s peace and blessings be upon him) told us that our greatest enemy is the ego that resides between our two sides. What is the ego (nafs), and why is it such a formidable foe? The current Muslim crisis can be solved only by divine change. But first we must learn to change our own condition so that it may help bring about the change we want in the world. This talk will include a Qur’anic diagnosis and treatment plan for the current Muslim crisis.
Do you want the reward for help sharing Islamic knowledge to 500 people a day for the rest of your life and even when you pass away?
Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
"When a person dies, his deeds are cut off except for three: Continuing charity, knowledge that others benefited from, and a righteous son who supplicates for him."
