Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research

Experiencing Spiritual Elevation

Season Finale!

Why do we not feel the same connection to Allah every time we recite or listen to the Qur’an? How can we improve the quality of my connection over time? What can we do to manage feelings of guilt and weakness when reading the Qur’an?

In the season finale of Qur’an Convos, Sh. Suleiman Hani talks to Sh. Yasir Fahmy about reaching an elevated spiritual state when engaging with the Qur’an.

Sh. Yasir is the first American Azhari to teach in the renowned Al-Azhar Mosque. He is the founder of Prophetic Living and he serves as an Advisor on Yaqeen’s Editorial Review Board.
