Tomorrow Never Came: The Redemption of Ka'b ibn Malik w/ Ammar Al-Shukry
SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER: AMAAR AL-SHUKRY Program Details: At a young age Ka'b ibn Malik had it all; married, wealthy, he was a companion of the messenger of Allah and of the very first in Medinah to believe in him and serve him. His faith was unwavering, his reputation was impeccable. And then...he made a mistake. A mistake so big that it turned his world upside down and made the entire city of believers shun him. His mistake could have broken him. It could have destroyed him. But it didn't. The repentance of Ka'b ibn Malik is one of the most unique stories of the seerah. Told entirely in the first person of the person who lived it, it is a tale of loss, seclusion, trials, temptation.. And redemption. Some of the story highlights will include: 1) The consequences of sins in their immediate and long term effects 2) The role friendship plays in our success or failure 3) The conditions of a sincere repentance 4) The virtues of truthfulness 5) The recognizing of blessings and how to increase them Speaker Bio: http://www.virtualmosque.com/miscellaneous/poetry-fiction/interview-with-ammar-alshukry/
