Respect the women around you, Habib Ali al-Jifri

Being Content Without Consumerism

How can we be content with our lives?

Why did the old man in the palace give the young man olive oil when he was asked about the meaning of happiness? Shaykh Ahmad Saad tells us the story, which serves as a powerful reminder for us to be content in whatever situation Allah has placed us in.  The shaykh also gives practical steps in knowing and achieving the “essentials of Qur’anic contentment”.  Our thanks to ISNA Canada for the recording.
