    Season Finale! Believing in the Unseen with Dr. Omar Suleiman

    Season Finale! Believing in the Unseen with Dr. Omar Suleiman

    In Surat al-Hujurat verse 18, Allah (SWT) says: “Surely Allah knows the Unseen of the heavens and earth. And Allah is All-Seeing of what you do.” Al-Ghaib, or the Unseen, refers to knowledge that is only known to Allah, such as knowledge about the angels and jinn, heaven and hell, and fate and predestination.

Some of you scare people away [from faith].” He was addressing the best generation of Muslims when he said this, so it certainly still applies today. Are Muslim communities pushing women away today?

Very Beneficial!

Asalaamo Alikum!
I have really benefited from the topics discussed in this podcast. I have even shared what I have learned in gatherings within our community. Some of my favorite episodes:
Abortion & Islam
Jealousy & Envy in relation to Social Media
A man’s role in the Household

These were all topics that I really found relevant to do our day to day spiritual development. Really looking forward to next season

This is a great podcast. The topics are very interesting and relevant and the guests are excellent and knowledgeable. The host is very authentic and tries his best. I would kindly suggest that the host works on making his questions more concise and that he tries not to interrupt the guests. JAK for your hard work!
