    #46 Making a spiritual Change 4 Life - Reflection, Repentance, Resolutions, Ramadhan and positive habits all year round | Cradle2Grave Part7

    As we release this episode in January 2022 from Scotland, there are only a few months to go before we welcome Ramadhan again inshallah. This episode was recorded as a conclusion to our Cradle 2 the Grave series and focused on maintaining the spiritual high of Ramadhan throughout the whole year.


    However the topics discussed with Shaykh Amer Jamil are relevant to our spiritual journey and struggle all year round and not necessarily just for Ramadhan.


    Shaykh Amer Jamil provides guidance on topics such as,


    Making dua on completion of the Quran

    The Night of Power (Laylatul Qadr)

    The process of reflection

    Dhikr and Fikr - Remembrance and Reflection

    Creating the right environment for spiritual reflection

    Imam Ghazali’s advice on Muhasabah

    Maintaining positive habits

    Tawbah (Repentance)

    Shaykh Amer’s most memorable Ramadhan’s around the world

    6 fasts of Shawwal

    Giving charity throughout the year

    Beneficial and harmful acts on Eid day

    Spending Eid day alone

    Moon-wars over the day of Eid

    #43 Childhood Abuse - Physical, Emotional and Sexual abuse in the Muslim community | Cradle2Grave Part4

    #43 Childhood Abuse - Physical, Emotional and Sexual abuse in the Muslim community | Cradle2Grave Part4

    *IMPORTANT Self-care message* This episode is a sensitive one and it may be difficult to listen to for some people. Therefore please do look after yourself and make sure you reach out for help & support if it evokes some difficult emotions and feelings.


     


    The topic is childhood abuse.  The Muslim community is not immune to being affected by physical, emotional and sexual childhood abuse and it is imperative we understand, recognise and deal with abuse when it happens. For too long it has been brushed under the carpet, as it has been done in wider society.


     


    We discuss various topics with Shaykh Amer including


    Speaking up and addressing the problem of abuse

    How to deal with abuse when it happens in religious circles and institutions

    How to cope as an adult when you have been abused as a child

    Protecting our young people and future generations
