    Posted: 11 April 2015 at 6:56am
Sheikh Hamza is the co-founder of the Zaytuna College in California, and one of the leading Muslim scholars in North America.

He has many good talks on different aspects of Islam, which this thread will try to present In-Shaa-Allah

This first video is titled:

Don't Be Sad

"Do not grieve; indeed Allah is with us." (Al Qur'an 9: 40)

People feel depressed or sad when this harmonious emotional and hormonal equilibrium is disturbed, in which case Islam steps in, not to condemn the feeling, but to offer a solution for regaining psychological and mental balance.

We Are a Religion of Hope

As long as the wheel of life is destined to move on, problems and difficulties will keep popping up.

The Almighty has sent us in this world in order to test and try us.

The nature of this trial of life varies from person to person. Some people are placed in difficult times and others in prosperous ones, according to the just and wise scheme of the Almighty.

The underlying objective, however, remains to test them which one of them is good in deeds. So, the befitting attitude is to submit to the scheme of Allah because it will lead us to the Garden of Paradise.

Just Come Back to Allah

One of the Most Inspirational Videos Ever

Come, come again," instruct lines of poetry attributed to Rumi, the 13th century Persian poet, "ours is not a caravan of despair."

Here, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf emphasizes the expansiveness of the spirit demanded by Rumi.

"Religion is here to unite us; it's not here to divide us," says Hamza Yusuf. "And if it's dividing us, it's not God's religion -- it's something else.

Advices From Imam Al Ghazali

Shaykh Hamza Yusuf talks here about Imam Al-Ghazali's famous book Al-Ihya or (The Revival of Islamic Science).

He puts trust and tawheed in the same chapter.

To Al-Ghazali, if you really understand tawheed you would put all your trust in God. If you are not content with your circumstances, you are not content with God.


The main states of human beings are either tribulation or good situation.

The first state of tribulation needs patience and a good situation needs gratitude (or else He will take away your blessings)
