How Can I Stay Motivated Without Seeing Results? | Attaching to Allah – Episode 8

Every single person in the grave has things they wish they could have done or seen before death came to them. The Prophet ﷺ called these “long hopes” — dreams that you have that can never materialize because life ends. But the fruits of the seeds you’ve planted may materialize after your death.

How do you keep yourself motivated to work towards a dream you’ll never be able to see? And what can we learn from the times we have been touched by the legacies of people who have passed, even though they never lived to see it?

Tune in with Dr. Omar Suleiman, Ustadha Sarah Sultan and guests for episode 8 of Attaching to Allah, Yaqeen Institute’s 2022 Dhul Hijjah Series.
