About this episode

Dealing with Disabilities.

Last Friday, I gave khutbah on dealing with disabilities in light of the story of Ayub (Job) in the Qur'an. His story teaches us to rethink how we look at suffering, pain and disability. Once we do so, we gain the strength to cope.

We don't say, "God, why me?" Instead we say, "God, give me the strength to deal with this."

Also, we as a community should accommodate for the disabled. We have the example of the blind sahabi - Abdullah ibn Umm Maktoom - who was chosen to be the muaddhin (caller to prayer) despite being disabled. The Prophet (S) accommodated for him by having a person observe the sun and then instruct him when it's time.
