Ep. 3: The Power of Du’a: Maryam bint Imran (as)

One of the best examples of living tawakkul is Maryam (as), or Mary, mother of Jesus (as). From profound du’as that understand the wisdom and limitless generosity of God, to unhesitating boldness in standing up for her beliefs, to unwavering faith and hope in God amidst every trial, to reassurances and help from Allah Himself—Maryam’s story is simultaneously miraculous and relatable.

Chosen by Allah and forever memorialized in the Qur’an with an entire chapter named after her, she’s an example of servitude, steadfastness, devotion, strength, and greatness for every believer.
