How to Fight Spiritual Distractions

Why is reading the Qur’an different for us than reading other things? What are the distractions that can steal our attention away from Allah? What can we do to put our hearts in the right state to connect with His Words?

In this episode, Sh. Suleiman Hani talks to Dr. Safaruk Chowdhury, a Research Scholar in Islamic theology and philosophy, about overcoming spiritual distractions.

Dr. Safaruk is a Research Scholar in Islamic theology and philosophy at the Ibn Rushd Centre of Excellence for Islamic Research.
