In this age of ideological, religious and political chaos and confusion, there is a real need to sieve through the chaos? From bombings to killings, sectarian wars to widespread destruction - how can we find meaning in such a fractured world? From the time of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, Muslims have always strived to maintain their spirituality despite the challenges that they have faced. Persecution, harassment and discrimination did not dampen the spirit of Muslims for the last 1400 years. In fact history indicated that Muslims soared to their heights under very challenging circumstances.
Ustadh Usama Canon will discuss the qualities that Muslims will need to separate the wheat from the chaff. Qualities like forebearance, self-restraint, sensibility and compassion, which should be manifested by each Muslim so that they can have the means to cope with circumstances of their life and the environment. How do we disengage ourselves from the confusion and engage with our spirituality to enhance our relationship with Allah and His Messenger, and lead exemplary lives to the benefit of mankind and society? Ustadh Usama Canon will share his experiences, knowledge and wisdom and discuss the rules of engagement and how to best adhere to the practice of the Prophet Muhammad salallahu alaihi wasallam in all spheres of our lives. He will propose acts of worship and obedience to enhance one’s spirituality so that we can seek clarity and balance amidst the widespread turmoil.
