Coping With Tragedy – Dr. Umar Faruq Abd-Allah

Coping With Tragedy – Dr. Umar Faruq Abd-Allah

Beyond the devastating physical effects of natural disasters, it is the emotional burden that can be the hardest to bear. Rebuilding our lives in the aftermath is often more difficult and taxing than riding out the storm itself. To overcome the challenges of impatience, anxiety and depression, the cornerstone of the rebuilding process requires deep spiritual effort, an effort which can begin by reminding ourselves what our religion teaches us about calamity. Join Dr. Umar Abd-Allah as he discusses how to cope with personal tragedy in this recording of Al-Madina Institute’s teleconference event.
