Why did the Muslim cross the road?

Probably to get to the halal chicken on the other side. Anyways, on to more important matters…

At times many of us will have questioned God (“Why always me?”), doubted our own faith, felt like giving up, etc. This is a natural part of the up and down cycle of belief. At times we feel full of spiritual energy, and other times we despair to the point of emotional exhaustion.

For the times when we feel down, I hope the three short video clips below can help us better understand our lives, especially from an Islamic perspective.

The clip from the brilliant Maryam Amirebrahimi comes with some additional text from virtualmosque.com:

Could getting your dream job be bad for you? Is there a way that losing a loved one could be a blessing in disguise? Each and every event in our life is a test from Allah. This session will explore a world view based on God consciousness, and what we can do to make everything in our life an opportunity to draw nearer to our Lord.

The videos are in total just over 30 minutes and are well worth a listen. Enjoy!
