About this episode

This Khutbah was recorded in Frisco on 04/21/2017.

We have this common belief that when we make duaa, Allah will immediately solve our problem, otherwise He is not happy with us. In this khutbah, Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan teaches us that this can’t be further from the truth.

A simple look at the trials of all the messengers of Allah will prove it: Prophet Nuh made daawa for 950 years, but those closest to him never followed; Prophet Muhammad made duaa for his uncle, but Abu Lahab continued to fight him; and Prophet Yacoub cried so much over the loss of his son Youssef that he lost his eyesight.

The story of Maryam is another inspiring example. She was in such shock when the angel told her that she will have a child – to her this was the worst punishment – that she prayed to Allah that she would rather die than face humiliation in her community. As it turns out, the child who caused all that grief, Prophet Esa (AS), was the reason she is being honoured until today, hundreds of years later.
