How Can I Be Content With What I Have? | Attaching to Allah – Episode 9

Is contentment possible in this life? Yes, and it’s all a matter of perspective. In the story of the wives of Isma’il (as), we see that two people, in the same exact circumstance, had entirely different experiences. The only difference was in their mindset, and this is true for us as well. Do we choose negativity, or do we practice gratitude and choose to be positive with the circumstances of our lives?

Tune in with Dr. Omar Suleiman, Ustadha Sarah Sultan and guests for episode 9 of Attaching to Allah, Yaqeen Institute’s 2022 Dhul Hijjah Series.
