Episode Notes

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan directs his lecture towards one of the very strong and sturdy pillars of human existence – Family.

The Ustadh begins his lecture with a general introduction after which we are made spectators to the lives of Prophet Yusuf AS and his brothers who left no stone unturned in tormenting, agonizing and alienating him. Yet they were his family and this emotion always comes to the fore even in the most trying of circumstances.

Another example cited is that of our beloved Prophet ﷺ and how a particular year was called the Year of Sadness with respect to the fact that he had lost both his uncle and wife in the same year and his grief was unimaginable and unfathomable.

What should one’s approach be when it comes to family despite the unending complications and trials one faces in this regard? This lecture clearly implores us that in order for us to seek Taqwa in Allah, it is of supreme importance and paramount that we take care of our family, no strings attached. Just as we are vigilant of the rights of Allah, so should we be aware and vigilant of the rights of the family.
