The An-Naseeha Foundation arranged an enlightening and spiritually enriching event last Friday evening—an Islamic lecture that delved into the profound topic of navigating trials and difficulties from an Islamic viewpoint. The event drew a diverse audience eager to gain insights and guidance on facing life’s challenges through the lens of Islamic teachings.
The event commenced with recitation from the Qur’an from international guest, *Qari Hazza Al-Balushi*,(Oman) that set the tone for a reflective evening.
The guest speaker, *Shaikh Anis Gouissem* (Tunisia), a scholar well-versed in Islamic theology and jurisprudence, emphasised the inevitability of trials and tribulations in life, drawing upon Qur’anic verses and Hadiths to illustrate how such challenges are an integral part of the human experience. One key message was the concept of patience (Sabr), including perseverance in the face of adversity, gratitude during times of ease, and reliance on Allah’s Wisdom and Mercy. The audience was reminded that trials are opportunities for spiritual growth, and exercising patience brings one closer to Allah.
The lecture also delved into the significance of turning to prayer and supplication during difficult times. The Shaikh also illustrated how sincere and heartfelt prayers have the power to transform one’s circumstances and provide solace in the midst of trials.
Furthermore, Shaikh Anis discussed the importance of trust in Allah (Tawakkul) and maintaining a positive mindset. The event served as a source of inspiration and guidance, empowering individuals to approach trials with resilience, faith, and building a connection with Allah.
