The Believer’s Response to Trials and Tribulations: Reflections on the Quebec Shootings, A Year Later – Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

In this khutba Shaykh Faraz Rabbani reminds us that the believers are not distinguished by living a worldly life, rather a believer lives with a higher reality and sense of purpose. Understanding the events that take place in this world are not for one to simply indulge in with worldly emotions. Rather they are a trial to see how one will deal with the trials and tribulations of this world. He goes on to remind us that what makes a Muslim community is believing in Allah and His Messenger (peace and blessing be upon him).

Shaykh Faraz goes on to explain how believers respond to trials. In trials and tribulations there is a tremendous wisdom from Allah Most High. What Allah wants from believers during trials is to continue to turn to Him with a sense of need. He ends by explaining how the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) was constantly tried and tested, however he never complained.

This khutba was delivered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani at the Mississauga Jame Masjid ( in January 2018.
