How Do You Cope With Grief And Loss? | Attaching to Allah – Episode 5

While grief is inevitable, it’s never easy. Losing loved ones, whether through death, disbelief, divorce, or other means, can send us spinning into deep spirals of sorrow. We can and should acknowledge our grief, and while we do, we can take heart in the story of Prophet Ibrahim (as), whose life was defined by the loss of everyone he loved—but who looked forward to his ultimate reunion with his Lord.

Tune in with Dr. Omar Suleiman, Ustadha Sarah Sultan and guests for episode 5 of Attaching to Allah, Yaqeen Institute’s 2022 Dhul Hijjah Series.
