Juz’ 14 with Dr. Nazir Khan | Qur’an 30 for 30 Season 3

The bee, a small insect which produces a powerhouse of healing with its sweet honey, is also responsible for pollinating much of what we eat. In juz 14 of the Holy Qur’an, Allah reminds us in Surah al-Nahl of the many blessings He has provided for us in this world so that we may be grateful. Dr. Nazir Khan joins Dr. Omar Suleiman and Sh. Abdullah Oduro to reflect on gratitude, guidance as the greatest blessing, and the means by which we should guide others.
