In this series of podcasts, Imam Yama Niazi will help Muslim youth develop a holistic understanding of religion.

Attaining certainty and contentment with Allah and always turning to Him is essential for the youth. Often youth need advice and guidance in their life that they are deprived of due to many reasons; among them being a lack of teachers, busy lifestyles, or just simply disinterest. This podcast series focuses specifically on a youth audience
Imam Yama Niazi starts by mentioning that there is a sura (chapter) in the Qur’an that the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) recited every day and this sura is called Surat al-Sajda. It is the 32nd chapter in the Qur’an. Imam Yama goes on to explain the opening verses that speak of the greatness and power of Allah Most High. Imam Yama explains the different interruptions of these verses by the scholars of the Qur’an.
Imam Yama then goes on to point out a verse that calls the believers to worship Allah in the night. This is verse 16 where Allah says: “They abandon their beds, invoking their Lord with hope and fear, and donate from what We have provided for them.”
Imam Yama continues by not only describing the many virtues of getting up in the night to ask Allah for forgiveness. But he explains how night worship can be a deterrent from sins during the day and a catalyst to strengthen one’s faith.
Imam Yama ends by reminding all of the bounties of Allah, and how Allah gives more than anyone could ever imagine.
