Mother’s Strength, Father’s Prayers: Success through Struggle | Iman Cave

Adversity not only tests our limits but also has the power to fuel our ambition. How can we, as Muslim men, turn trials into triumphs? Join Sheikh Abdullah Oduro and Co-Host Ustadh Morad Awad as they unveil the journey of Mohammad Elashi and Osama Elashi, who transformed hardship into ambition, inspired by their father—one of the Holy Land 5, wrongfully incarcerated—and the unwavering strength of their mother.
