Have you ever spoken to someone who had his face in his smartphone throughout the conversation? Maybe he answered an incoming call without any regard for you or what you were saying. How did this make you feel? People today are lonelier than ever, despite having hundreds of “friends” on social media. Allah made us, commanded us to maintain our relationships, and even blessed us with the means of increasing them through marriage – all for our benefit. Nurturing these relationships and the bonds of faith are central to being Muslims. In this course, Ustadh Ajmad Tarsin explains how.
Islam is a social religion. The benefits of social interaction also spill over into one’s religious practice. This is why worship in Islam has placed a social element within the even the obligatory acts of worship. The prayer is performed as a group; all Muslims fast in Ramadan; Zakat is given to other people – usually locally; the Hajj unites millions of people every year. Beyond the bonds of family and friendship, we have the tie of faith, too. Nurturing these ties is of the utmost importance to our physical, emotional, and spiritual health. The entire sunna of the Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, promotes healthy, strong relationships – the greatest of which is one’s relationship to God. In this course, Ustadh Amjad Tarsin beautifully highlights the importance and need of strengthening our relationships, drawing the example of the Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, and his companions. A must for those who want their religion and relationships to thrive.
