How To Be Sad: Understanding the Sorrow of the Prophet(peace and blessings be upon him)- Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Shaykh Faraz Rabbani explains lessons from the Year of Sorrow of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).

Contrary to some misunderstandings, the Sorrow of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was not of dejection or depression.

Rather, his Sorrow was the most beautiful of sorrow: a deep sense of awe and neediness to Allah; and deep care, concern, and mercy for people.

This beautiful Sorrow was rooted in faith and certitude; contentment and steadfastness and drove the Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace & blessings be upon him & his folk) to turn to Allah, and to spread mercy and good around him.
