Rise: Standing Up After Your Fall - Yahya Rhodus

Standing up is not just a posture of prayer, but a way of life that stands as a metaphor to assist us to meet our own challenges and set-backs. Listen as our teachers engage more deeply with the questions and doubts often raised in our minds. This session seeks to provide Qur’anic guidance for exploring the counter-intuitive messages of how we grow spiritually amidst personal and collective setbacks.

Where The Waters Meet: Moses, al-Khidr & The Need for Mentorship by Yahya Rhodus

And so they found one of Our servants, on whom We had bestowed Mercy from Ourselves and to whom We had taught Knowledge from Our Presence. (Surah Kahf, 18:65)

Beyond the many lessons of the Qur’anic account of Musa and al-Khidr in Surah al-Kahf, a Surah we are encouraged to read every Friday, its message about companionship speaks to both its external and internal benefits. While technology has immense benefits in providing us access to bland facts and information, this disconnected learning cannot replace the flowering of true, meaningful knowledge that can only occur through inter-personal relationships. The blessings and spiritual lessons of sitting with mentors and good company cannot be underestimated.

How do we unplug and humble ourselves in a practical way that allows us to plug into the spiritual energy of righteous company and teachers?

There is a rehabilitative event that occurs when we reflect on the stories of the Qur'an:

When faced with family problems, we find strength in the story of Adam; when met with ridicule for holding onto the truth, we see meaning in the story of Nūh; when we feel burned by the heat of life's tests, we find coolness in the story of Ibrahim; when faced with loneliness and rejection at work or school, we find presence in the isolation and shaming of Yusuf; when feeling threatened by power, teased because of a disability and incapable, we find strength in the story of Musā and his brother; when we feel alone, and we need friends, we find promise in the story of the People of the Cave. When we think slandered, we see strength in the story of Maryam, and when we feel rejected from our people, we find an anchor in the stories of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم وعليهم السلام جميعا

That is why Imam Abu Hanifa said,
"I enjoy the stories of the righteous more than debating and arguing about fiqh."

And Imam al-Junayd said,
"Stories of the righteous are an infantry of God that he sends to the hearts, strengthening them and solidifying them."

He was asked, "What is your proof?"
He recited, "And each of these stories of unknown events we revealed to you; their purpose is to solidify your heart." Qu'ran

In these trying days, let's spend some quality time with the Qur'an, even if it only for a few minutes. There is promise in its stories and life in its challenges.

~Imam Suhaib Webb~

Surah Al-Qadr - Laylatul Qadr - Nouman Ali Khan


Surah Al-Qadr is entirely dedicated to Laylatul Qadr, the most noble of nights during the month of Ramadan when the Quran was first revealed. In this video, Ustadh Nouman teaches us the nuances of the phrase “laylatul qadr” in Arabic, which combines the meanings of night of “decree”, “honor” and “power”. This is the night when Allah will decree that the angels execute all His decisions for the rest of the year; when Allah revealed the most honorable words through His most honored angel to His most honored messenger. Finally it is a night endowed with unusual power; a night when all our sincere duaa will be accepted. It is the ultimate night of peace and prayer; one we must take advantage of as the blessed month of Ramadan comes to a close. But above all else, Laylatul Qadr is a celebration of the Quran.

Allah Speaks to the Sad Person


A small expression from the Quran that is an insight to depression and sadness. Allah says:

So do not weaken and do not grieve, and you will be superior if you are [true] believers. (Quran 3:139)

Wahan” in Arabic is actually the feeling of not being able to exercise change. In other words, no matter what you do, things are not changing, things are not getting better, or your best attempts have failed, and now you feel incapable of succeeding.

When that starts settling in, like, “Oh my efforts have failed, or I haven’t been able to accomplish…” Then the next phase is, “and don’t be in a state of grief”, sadness kicks in; you’ve become that original paralysis and failure and that leads you right into sadness.

Allah doesn’t just say, “Don’t be sad”, He actually went to the root cause; the root cause was some kind of failure, some kind of disappointment that kind of wore you down, and it started taking away your own confidence, your own belief that you can actually do better…

Subhanallah!

One of the places He did this was in the battle of Uhud, where Muslims suffered amazing and incredible amount of loss; but He turned that loss into something positive. He actually in the very next verse says:

If a wound should touch you – there has already touched the [opposing] people a wound similar to it. And these days [of varying conditions] We alternate among the people… (Quran 3:140)

Don’t Let Sadness Overwhelm You

Don’t let this overwhelm you and just beat yourself up. As a matter of fact, huzn is a state in which a person is actually torturing themselves. Sadness is when you’re beating yourself up; a situation beat you up, and now you allowed yourself to get beat up on top of that.

Allah says not to put yourself in that position; meaning you’re going to be in the supreme position so long as you’re total believers.

In other words, these situations come and go, but Allah is constant; you never lost Allah. Once you lose that, you lose everything and when you have that, nothing else counts, nothing else is a serious loss.

So long as you have that, you are never ever going to be in a state where you need to be depressed.

May Allah make us of people who don’t feel overwhelmed when facing failure; may Allah make us of people who can always stay away from the casting shadow of sadness that can take away all of the good and positive that we have in our lives.
