The Solution to Your Struggles— Imam Suleiman Salem
Trials, hardships, and struggles are an inevitable part of life. One way we deal with our struggles is to lose hope and feel sad about our situation. We ask “why is this happening to me?” or “why is nothing going right in my life?”. This way of thinking creates a barrier between us and Allah (SWT). The other way we can deal with our struggles is to seek the help of Allah (SWT). By doing this, our pain and struggles can be a means of bringing us back to our Lord. The MSA and WIA present to you “The Solution to Your Struggles”, a 3-hour program presented by Imam Suleiman Salem. Imam Suleiman will be going over the nature of hardships and trials. The seminar will consist of the following: -7 Reasons We Struggle -The State of the Heart in Relation to Struggles -The 4 Cures -Common Struggles & Solutions -Motivational Conclusion This event takes place on Wednesday, December 30 at 6:00 PM in the Windsor Mosque’s gym, insha’Allah. You do NOT want to miss out on this event. All are welcome to attend.
