Supplication and Cultivating True Hope – Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Assisting those in hardship and suffering, whether it’s giving charity or otherwise, is something we should all strive to do. However, the sunnah is to make dua for them. In this Friday sermon, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani elucidates on the poem The Prayer of the Oppressed by Imam Muhammad G. Nasir al-DarÏ, translated by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf. Shaykh Rabbani elaborates on the benefits of supplication and warns against being ritualistic in acts of devotion. With the blessed month of Ramadan coming, he encourages us to implement small changes now, such as increasing our Quran recitation or sending salutations on our Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) and other acts of devotion. He emphasizes that true hope of attaining good is actualized only with a plan of action, commitment, and turning to Allah Most High without delay.
