Teaser | Attaching to Allah, a Dhul-Hijjah Series

Do you remember how you felt when you lost your favorite toy as a child? What about when, as you got older, you watched your parents struggle with illness? As we move through the stages of life, the pangs of loss only grow bigger and more devastating. Realizing this, many of us begin to give up and detach. ‘Don’t love too much, don’t long too much,’ we tell our aching hearts.

But surely this can’t be the answer either. There must be a balance between love and loss, dunya and akhirah.

In the life of Ibrahim (as), we learn this crucial lesson at the core of faith. Through his story, we see that, although this world will break your heart, God has the power to hold the pieces together.

Tune in this Dhul-Hijjah with Dr. Omar Suleiman and Ustadha Sarah Sultan as they explore the life of Prophet Ibrahim (as) and share lessons along the way.
