What did the best of people do when they found themselves subject to cruelty, abandonment, estrangement, or utter loneliness? Juz 16 is filled with examples of prophets and righteous people feeling completely alone—and not only taking advantage of those times, but also seeing good times for what they are too: tests from Allah.
In this episode, Sh. Ismail Kamdar joins Dr. Omar Suleiman and Sh. Abdullah Oduro to learn about how we can change our view of our circumstances once we understand who Allah is through His attributes and through the lessons from the stories of the righteous.
