Don’t Ask For Relief from Trials – Rather Ask for Right Response – Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Shaykh Faraz highlights the teaching of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) with regards to what a believer should ask for during trials that they will inevitably face. He calls believers to not focus on getting out of the trial, but rather to focus on being the strong and empowered believer who responds to the trial with the strength, certitude and reliance upon Allah that faith entails. 

Shaykh Faraz recounts several examples of Prophet’s companions (peace and blessings be upon him and them), and how the Prophet directed them to having the correct response to trials, instead of just praying for the trials to be lifted. Shaykh Faraz gives several practical examples of how we can seek the right response in trials.

This Friday khutba was delivered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani in December 2016 at the University of Toronto, St. George campus.
