Pure gems

Sh. Hamza always renews my belief in earning knowledge and the humility it requires. Knowledge is the highest form of Tarbiyah. Because one doesn’t learn unless one is disciplined and practicing discipline is humbling. Finally, God loves submission. Jazaak Allah Khair, Sh. Hamza. May Allah bless you immensely and the lamp of guidance keep burning.

Priceless

I always look forward to be challenged when I listen to Sheikh Hamza Yusuf. He makes you rethink what seems important that’s it’s not.

Dr Stabb ,

Very poignant and relevant to modern times

Engaging reminders from the Divine Quran and the Hadith of our Prophet peace be upon him. May Allah bless sheikh and all part of this wonderful series.
