Juz 7: Strength Through Submission | Mufti Hussain Kamani

Abdullah Oduro as they reflect on Juz 7 of the Qur’an, discussing the divine wisdom of Allah’s tests and blessings, understanding good and evil, how to deal with mockery of Allah and religion, as well as building strength through submission to God.
