A Perspective on the Pandemic Abdal Hakim Murad
« on: April 16, 2020, 10:46:12 PM »
Another edifying talk by Dr. Murad, this time about the current pandemic afflicting our world. Although he draws from the Islamic theological heritage, his sobering perspective can easily be applied to all men of good faith.

Brilliantly delivered. I highly recommend it.

A Perspective on the Pandemic Abdal Hakim Murad

The current pandemic has upended nearly every aspect of the world we live in. But is it unprecedented? Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad, Dean of Cambridge Muslim College, shares his perspective on this humbling phenomenon, one which is not unfamiliar in our Islamic tradition. He also highlights the beauty and healing of our religious practice and provides helpful suggestions on how to remain connected as Muslims.

DISPOSE OUR DAYS IN THY PEACE, AND COMMAND US TO BE DELIVERED FROM ETERNAL DAMNATION, AND TO BE NUMBERED IN THE FLOCK OF THINE ELECT.

Good example of why we need a downvote button. Watching that hit negative twenty and get plastered over with a retard wojak meme would be very amusing.

The video does have a good aesthetic, panning along that terrace, with the soft tones of the narrator.
Padre Pio: Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.
