Nouman Ali Khan – Overwhelmed

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into the magnitude of different relationships in our daily lives in the light of Islam.

When we have a relationship with Allah, we need to understand that our life doesn’t become any easier or struggle free and merry. That is a totally different dimension. Wen we believe in Allah, we get the strength to face any problem or adversity and ride through the storm unscathed.

Fear and sadness are the heaviest burdens we encounter in our life. Fear is about the future and sadness is about the past. Feeling sad is not an indication of one’s faith in Allah.

An extreme case of overwhelming fear and sadness depicted in the history of Islam is that of the mother of Musa AS. this story is described at length for us to fully fathom the emotions of fear and sadness and what is the stance of a believer in the wake of this extreme adversity.
