Reflections on Quran and Spirituality
Turning to the Quran for Guidance and Inspiration to Manage ourselves and take effective action in challenging times Part 2 – Channelling anger effectively and towards the right people and entities
Many of us are feeling angry at the injustices, the oppression, the mass murders, the brainwashing, political posturing, refusal of people to stand up and speak the truth, Islamophobia . … .there really is plenty to make and keep us mad.
Our anger is pointing to the fact that we find ourselves in a situation which is unacceptable according to any standard of morality or humanity and it is completely justified.
The issue is how are we channelling our anger? Are we using it in effective ways and towards the right people and institutions? In part 2 of the series, let’s explore these questions with some guidance and inspiration from the Quran.

Great lectures delivered in a very cheerful manner and full of positivity
Always waiting for new episodes on my daily commute to and from work so I can take home amazing lessons from the Quran and start applying them practically thanx for all the effort and time for delivering the lectures
The Pursuit and Practice of Islam. Muharram 2020
In the midst of countless lectures being relayed from all over the world, the series of “The Pursuit and Practice of Ihsan” has undoubtedly left me with many moments of soul searching and reflection. I found the lectures to be as deeply layered and nuanced as we women are, and each of them was extremely relatable and highly therapeutic too. Take home messages were aplenty but several listenings would be required of each lecture to give it the justice it deserves. For me this series was not only as gripping as an interesting Netflix series that I binge-watch but with the end result of a far greater satisfaction to the soul too. Thank you Sr. Marzia for discussing vital issues so important to women in particular, and for raising awareness that we all must strive to be the best version of ourselves.
This podcast is an essential part of my week. It is a great way to reflect on key values and learn more about how the Quran and lives of great leaders can impact my day to day life.
