Imam Ash-Shafi’i said, in regard to du’a in Tahajjud, “The arrow that is shot at night doesn’t miss its mark.” Sincere du’a and communication with Allah is an antidote to the difficulties we face as individuals and communities. In this episode, Dr. Tamara encourages us to help build a healthier ummah through regular nightly prayers.…

How did our pious predecessors accomplish so much in their lifetimes and change the world while maintaining a deep connection with the Lord of the Universe? When we look at what fuels their unwavering inner strength and resolve, we see that they were habitual risers for nightly worship. Whether we strive to be like them or are simply looking for st…
 
While we yearn and pray for the day Allah invites us to experience the last pillar (whether or not it is our first visit), we can find solace in a few gifts the Prophet (s) left us: messages that confirm that even when we are far from his land and the land of Ibrahim (a), we can still earn the reward of a fully accepted Hajj through the ordinary de…
 
A major theme of the Prophet’s directions on how to perform Hajj was flexibility. He knew that, just as Allah never places a burden upon anyone beyond what they can handle, Hajj was also meant to be something every individual could handle. He reminded his Companions to be flexible and to remember that honoring each other was even more important tha…
 
On the most blessed day of all in the Sight of Allah, the Prophet (s) did two things: speak to the people and speak to Allah. And on that fateful day, as the Ummah was spread out across Arafah, he delivered his final sermon: the unparalleled, most comprehensive message to the world that marked the moment Islam was perfected and completed.…
 
After the Battle of Hunayn in the 8th year after Hijrah, the Prophet (s) performed his third Umrah. But it was the eventful 9th year that saw both the abolishment of the rituals from the days of ignorance and the first ameer of Hajj in Islam who set the stage for the Prophet’s (s) farewell pilgrimage to come in the next year.…
 
The opening of Makkah was a momentous event, but it was immediately followed by challenges. After the Battle of Hunayn, whisperings of discontent arose among the Ansar. But in a speech that left everyone present in tears, the Prophet ﷺ reassured the hearts of the people of Madinah, affirmed his abiding love for them, and chose them even over his ow…
 
After the Treaty of Hudaybiyah was broken by the Quraysh, the Prophet ﷺ and the Muslims embarked on the long-awaited journey back to their homeland of Makkah. In a day of reconciliation and mercy that was an example of the faith they were persecuted over, he ﷺ liberated the Ka’bah from idolatry and solidified the triumph of truth.…
 
Sometimes a sign can lead to good things that we didn’t expect. For the Prophet ﷺ, the truth of a dream of performing Umrah was assured, but it was not to be fulfilled immediately. Instead, it re-directed to a lasting good: the Treaty of Hudaybiyah. What did the eventual journey to Umrah and the first homecoming back to Makkah look like for the Mes…
 
Forced out of the only home they knew, the Prophet ﷺ and the Companions missed Makkah dearly. They reminisced through tearful poetry and heartbreaking conversations, until the Prophet ﷺ made a du’a that not only gave them solace, but made the city of Madinah twice as beloved to believers for generations to come.…
 
Before Islam, the Quraysh knew the Ka’bah was special, but they misused the holy site in pursuit of idolatry. As a result, the Prophet ﷺ avoided the Ka’bah in his early years, wishing to stay away from shirk and obscenity. But that would change once he received revelation. As he learned about what the Ka’bah truly stood for—a symbol of monotheism i…
 
Over Ramadan, we peered into the life of the Prophet ﷺ. We saw him in gatherings, met him around town, and heard his khutbahs. But we haven’t yet explored one of the seminal moments of his life—and the experience that every Muslim strives for, too: the Hajj. What did the first official pilgrimage look like? What was the story surrounding it? This D…
 
The final and most oft-recited section of the blessed Qur'an is full of lessons that were taken to heart by the Prophet ﷺ and that apply more than ever to all of us. As we finish out Ramadan, the many short surahs in juz 30 remind us to absorb the deepest lessons of revelation and to internalize the reality that Allah's presence and promise are tru…
 
Juz 29 is the juz of da’wah, guiding the Prophet ﷺ on how to invite people to Islam, how to depend upon Allah, and how to draw inspiration from the prophets that came before him. Sh. Suleiman Hani joins Dr. Omar Suleiman and Sh. Abdullah Oduro to reflect on these themes, their sequence, as well as delayed gratification through sabr. Download our FR…
 
As Al-Quds suffers blows, our global ummah faces trial after trial, and we continue to encounter personal tests, there is no better place to look to for guidance than the Book of Allah. In light of this, Dr. Omar Suleiman, Sh. Abdullah Oduro, and Ustadha Lobna Mulla discuss the teachings of juz 28, reflecting on: the struggle the Muhajiroon faced w…
 
The surahs of the 27th juz contain powerful verses and symbols that inspire awe, from the many signs of Allah in nature to the majestic nature of the angels and the mystery of qadr. These themes are timelessly inspiring, so much so that at the time of their revelation, even the most stubborn of the disbelievers in Makkah were compelled to bow down …
 
While the surahs in juz 26 cover a significant sequence of the seerah, they all contain examples regarding the adab of listening to Allah and His Messenger ﷺ. Sh. Mowlid Ali joins Dr. Omar Suleiman and Sh. Abdullah Oduro to reflect on these mannerisms, as well as the themes of Surat al-Hujurat—from unity and brotherhood, to the Qur’anic guidelines …
 
Jealousy and envy, among other vices, led some Makkans who could have been companions of the Prophet ﷺ to become disbelievers. In light of those incidents, Dr. Omar Suleiman, Sh. Abdullah Oduro, and Sr. Sarah Sultan reflect upon Allah’s warning to the disbelievers, how understanding His blessed Names can benefit us, and how to overcome our negative…
 
In the early days of Makkah, the Prophet's ﷺ preaching faced constant anger, retribution, and counter-efforts from the opponents of Islam. Many of the verses in juz 24 offered reassurance to the Prophet and his Companions that their diligence would be worth it. Dr. Omar Husain joins Dr. Omar Suleiman and Sh. Abdullah Oduro to draw parallels between…
 
Every single human must face trials and tribulations in their lifetime, and the prophets faced the most severe ones. Ustadha Ieasha Prime joins Dr. Omar Suleiman and Sh. Abdullah Oduro to reflect on juz 23 in light of those hardships. They discuss the qualities that make believers different, why the du’a from Yunus (pbuh) is so beautiful, and the v…
 
The chapters of juz 22 cover many different themes: from the revelation of hijab, to the 5th year after hijrah when the Prophet ﷺ and the Muslims had to face the difficult Battle of Khandaq, under siege in a month of forced starvation, to a blueprint for maintaining a lifestyle of hamd and gratitude and knowledge, to knowing how to distinguish betw…
 
As Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and the Sahaba dealth with the Battles of Badr and Ahzab, juz 21 revealed three Makkan surahs that describe some of the virtues and victories of monotheism. Dr. Osman Umarji joins Sh. Abdullah Oduro and Dr. Omar Suleiman to expand on the predictions of Surah Al-Rum, the triumph of monotheism over polytheism, the differences be…
 
When Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and his companions faced increasing challenges, Allah sent down clear guidelines and stories to exemplify the message. Dr. Omar Suleiman and Sh. Abdullah Oduro are joined by Dr. Ovamir Anjum to reflect on the stories revealed about the other prophets that helped guide the early Muslims through not one but two migrations and …
 
The Qur’an was revealed to guide humanity, and yet the Messenger’s ﷺ own people refused to acknowledge its miracle. Though many verses in juz 19 were revealed as a response and warning to Quraysh, the message is universal. Dr. Omar Suleiman, Sh. Abdullah Oduro, and special guest Dr. Farah Islam reflect on the Qur’an’s guidance, avoiding heedlessnes…
 
In juz 18, we see Surah Al-Nur elaborate on a difficult reality that the Prophet and his family faced: the slander of Aisha (ra). Dr. Nazir Khan joins Dr. Omar Suleiman and Sh. Abdullah Oduro to examine themes shared by the chapters in this juz–achieving true success as believers by turning back to Allah, acting mindfully, and avoiding heinous deed…

Abdullah Oduro to reflect on struggling for the sake of Allah and the reassuring promises of ease after difficulty. Download our FREE eBook “Qur’an 30for30: The Companion…
 
This juz contains the powerful chapters that played a role in establishing Islam in both Makkah and Madinah: Al-Kahf, Maryam, and Ta-Ha. Within their verses are vivid stories of the prophets—of da’wah and du’a as they relate to Muhammad ﷺ. Dr. Jihad Saafir joins Dr. Omar Suleiman and Sh. Abdullah Oduro to glean the wisdoms Allah has set forth in a …
 
At the halfway point of the Qur'an, two surahs offer a glimpse into important events in the seerah. Surah Al-Isra describes the Night Journey and Ascent of the Prophet ﷺ, while Surah Al-Kahf offered answers to questions posed by Jewish scholars. Both proved the truthfulness of Muhammad ﷺ to believers and skeptics alike. Ustadha Dania Tbakhi joins D…
