Juz 19: Humble Yourself Before Allah | Ust. Youssra Kandil

Do I have anything to do with the poverty around me? How can I rely on Allah and keep striving, even when all seems hopeless? Why did Allah give power to tyrants?

Abdullah Oduro as they reflect on Juz 19 of the Qur’an, discussing the qualities and lessons that can be learned from the stories of Musa (AS) and Pharaoh, and that of Sulayman (AS) and the ants, including being sincere in your help towards others, humbling yourself before God, doing the right thing, and the duties and responsibilities of the believer.
